US Family Feud host Steve Harvey has now revealed what the Kardashian and West families were really like when they taped an episode of the show.

The show, which sees the Kardashian-Jenner family face off against the West family, sounds like it will be just as dramatic as you would expect. The host of the show, Steve Harvey, sat down with Ellen DeGeneres recently to spill the beans on what it was actually like.

The celebrity edition of the show sees Kendell and Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Aunt CiCi, Kris’ mother MJ and friend Jonathan Cheban come up against Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and three of West’s cousins in an epic Family Feud.

The episode is set to air next month in the US with much anticipation only heightened by the interview between Steve Harvey and Ellen DeGeneres.

Apparently, the Kardashians were originally supposed to come up against the Hilton family but they cancelled. It is reported that a representative for Paris Hilton said that she could not participate in the show because she was a “businesswoman” and was “busy planning a wedding”. Harvey said that the replacement was made easy when “Kanye, who’s a big fan of Family Feud, said ‘I want to play’”.

Harvey said that Kanye brought on who he wanted to and that the three cousins that he invited were “perfect”. He stated that the reasoning behind this was because they were “just, like, ‘hood’”, meaning that they were honest and hadn’t really gotten a lot of time in the spotlight.

Steve Harvey went into the detail about how many of the Kardashian-Jenner family got upset when they weren’t originally named to be on the show. The grandmother, MJ, had apparently been told that she wasn’t allowed to play initially but she said that she “dressed up to see Steve” and so she was on the show.

And then there was the 6th member of the Kardashian group, Cheban, in which the Family Feud host referred to as “the extra”. Cheban is Kim’s BFF and makeup artist for the family and Steve Harvey said that “he was a lot”.

In reference to Kanye West, Steve Harvey said that he was the “best Family Feud celebrity panellist they had ever had…Kanye smiled!” He didn’t have enough kind words for Kim, however, saying that she “didn’t know nothing” however was extremely competitive with her sister Khloe.
