Woman's Hilarious 'Family Feud' Fail With 'Mother' Even Has Steve Harvey Losing It

She just couldn't figure out another word for "mother."

For all the times we've seen fails on "Family Feud", this one will definitely go down in history.

The almost eight-minute segment that was posted on YouTube on Monday features a hilarious round with the Patterson family and in particular, one contestant named Sheila. In the round, host Steve Harvey asked the family to name another word for "mother."

"Mom/mommy" and "mama" were already on the board, and with answers from other family members like "nani" and "nana" leading to two strikes, it was up to Sheila to save the day.

Except, this didn't happen. In fact, after four chances from the host, Sheila just couldn't find the right answer.

"It was scary at first, but once you hand me that jewel of information, I had that audience — it was like being at a Richard Pryor concert — I had the audience running around in that theater screaming, laughing, man. It was one of the great moments of TV," he told HuffPost Entertainment.
