Good answer! Good answer! Yeah, except it wasn’t. At all. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top Ten Dumbest Family Feud Fails.

For this list, we’ll be looking at the dumbest and most head-shaking fails throughout “Family Feud” history. We’ll be including any iteration of the show for this list, as hilariously stupid answers are timeless.

#10: Papa Bear

There are many different types of bear out there: polar, grizzly, panda…but, believe it or not, “papa bear” is not an official type. For this round, host Richard Dawson asks the contestants to “name a type of bear.” Not one to let his opponent get an answer in, this man quickly hits his button and answers: “papa bear,” and quite unenthusiastically we may add. What makes this moment so funny isn’t necessarily the answer itself, but the man’s reaction: he knows he messed up, but the words are already out of his mouth. We can only assume the 100 people surveyed weren't fans of Goldilocks.

#9: Jose

You can see where the thought process was with this one, but…come on. When Steve Harvey asks contestant Anthony to give him a boy’s name that starts with the letter H, Anthony slams the table and confidently blurts out, “Jose!” His answer is obviously wrong, but it’s Anthony’s confidence that makes it even funnier. He is absolutely sure that he nailed the question, despite the bewildered looks of both Steve Harvey and even his own family. As it turns out, the survey, unlike Anthony, knows that Jose doesn't start with an H.

#8: Pork ...Upine

This answer has become “Family Feud” legend, and is one of Steve Harvey’s personal favorites. When Harvey asks the contestants to name something that follows the word ‘pork’, things don't pan out the way he expects. Not only does the first contestant fail to pronounce – or spell – “pork loin” correctly, but the man succeeding her then drops an absolute bombshell of an answer: upine. As in: porcupine. Not only is the answer gut-bustingly stupid, but Steve Harvey’s completely befuddled response and resulting tangent is now legendary. You know it’s bad when your family laughs and Steve Harvey doesn’t even say “good answer!”

#7: Alligator

This is one heck of a family. During the fast money round, players were asked to “name an animal with three letters in its name.” And oh boy, did they not do that. The first contestant to go answers “frog”, to everyone’s amusement, and it only gets worse from there. His partner answers “alligator” to uproarious laughter, and Richard Dawson puts a hand on his shoulder as if to say “well, you tried”. The contestant explained that he thought the challenge was to name an animal with three of the SAME letters, but even then, alligator still doesn’t fit the bill. It's just a massive fail all around.

#6: Pie in the Horse

Well, we all knew that this was going to be interesting. During “Celebrity Family Feud,” Snoop Dogg is tasked with performing in the fast money round, where he has to fill in the blank: “pie in the” what? To which Snoop, devoid of all apparent logic, answers: “horse,” because why not? Steve’s response is priceless, as he legitimately doesn’t know what Snoop has said, and when he figures it out, he proceeds to go on one of his characteristic rants. Well, Snoop ended up fulfilling Steve’s prophecy after all: he ended up on YouTube, and we all had a good laugh.

#5: Gynecologist

Gotta say, as bad as this answer was, no one has ever seen a look of regret come upon a contestant’s face so quickly before. After being tasked with naming “a job that is dirty but someone has to do it,” Rocco says “plumber,” a great answer. Too bad the same answer was already taken by his fast money partner. Thinking quickly – perhaps a little too quickly – Rocco blurts out “gynecologist,” only to stand there in stunned and awkward silence with Steve as the audience and his family laugh all around them. Rocco’s family is never going to let this one go. Especially his wife.

#4: Naked Grandma

Oh, sorry, not naked grandma. It’s “nekkid grammah”! This bold answer is easily one of “Family Feud’s” most popular, as it has been making the rounds on the internet for some time. Steve asks the contestants to “name something a burglar would not want to see when he breaks into a house,” to which Rod, very passionately, yells “Naked grandma!” Steve doesn’t like the answer, to say the least. And then, unexpectedly, Rod actually receives the points due to one of the answers being “occupant.” This has to be one of the biggest stretches in “Family Feud” history, but hey, it is technically correct.

#3: September

This answer is at least right some of the time. When host Richard Dawson asks this contestant the question “during which month does a woman start to look pregnant”, she gives an answer that, judging by her confidence and quick response, might be based more on personal experience then what a survey says. Dawson is so flabbergasted by the answer that he even asks to reset the clock, because he’s too busy laughing to continue the game. As if that weren’t enough, he continues breaking out into fits of laughter for the next several minutes. Sometimes even the pros can’t hold themselves together.

#2: Titties

Well, his mother has got to be proud after this one. During the fast money round, contestant Eric is asked to give Steve a body part which begins with the letter T. Without a hint of hesitation, Eric says, “titties,” with complete pride in both himself and his response. The answer itself is funny, but it’s Eric’s completely unashamed manner of answering that makes it so much fun. There’s no smile, no reluctance, no regret…nothing. He is completely confident that “titties” is a respectable answer for a family game show aired on national television, and we love it.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a couple honorable mentions.

#1: Mommy and Nana

Sheila must have been messing with Steve, because there's no way these were legitimate answers. Steve asks the Patterson family to give him another way that people say “mother.” What follows is absolute anarchy. Sheila originally gives the answer “nana,” despite the person before her saying the exact same thing. After getting another chance, she says “mommy,” despite the answer already being on the board. She then gives “mommy” and “nana” as answers AGAIN but pronounced slightly different, while Steve slowly loses his sanity. After finally saying “mom” once more, Steve just stops the game before this madness can continue indefinitely. And it very well may have.
Oh I definitely agreed with this funny and very wrong list.
