Family Feud Jumps the Shark with a Gerbil - Watch

A ‘Family Feud’ contestant says ‘gerbil’ is something a doctor pulls out of a person.

Similar to the UK version of Family Fortunes, the show’s host asked two competitors to ‘name something a doctor pulls out of a person’ – but no one could have predicted what would happen next.

Buzzing in to answer the question, quiz contestant Darci blurted out “a gerbil!” while the rest of her family looked on in shock.

Bursting into laughter, Darci’s rival contestant couldn’t quite believe what he had heard, while host Steve Harvey was left speechless.

“I didn’t say that, I didn’t say that,” she said – but the damage was already done.

Unsurprisingly, ‘gerbil’ was not a top answer- and the woman was sent back to her family with no points.
