The new season of “Family Feud” is up and running, and ShockYa was excited to be able to speak to the host of the family-friendly show, Steve Harvey. Here’s what Harvey told us about the show and his life during a conference call. Check out the new season of “Family Feud” today!

When asked about one of his favorite moments:

I can’t say that it’s one of my favorite moments, but I’ll say one of my most alarming moments of the new coming season was we did one celebrity show with Honey Boo Boo’s family on there, and God have mercy…I just did not know. I did not know that there were people really like that. I didn’t know. I didn’t know. I hadn’t met any, especially on TV, so Honey Boo Boo’s family was alarming…I mean it had me off balance the whole day, because I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t know. Very, very rarely am I speechless, but they had me couple of times going Wow. Wow, man. These people right here, they’re different. They are truly, truly different.

On achieving success:

Here’s the key. A person has to remember that the road to success is always under construction. You have to get that through your head. That it is not easy becoming successful. Expect pitfalls, and barrels, and detour signs, and men working, and flagmen out on the road, and you got to stop and get off at an exit and go around the long way. Most people, when that happens, they think it’s not meant to be, their success, and they turn around. Well, in essence, those are the moments that you have to fight through. You’ve got to understand that the road to success is always under construction.

And then, the other part of it that I would tell anyone is you have to tend to every minute of the day. See, I account for every minute of my day. I don’t just have time where I’m sitting around, and I don’t know where I’m going, or I don’t know what I have to do, or I’m going to just chill for four hours today. I don’t have that, and I don’t look for that during the work week. I look for filling those minutes up with effort, and if you do that, that’s your best chance, right there. There are a few other things, but those two things are imperative.
