Hey y'all, it's your boy Steve Harvey here, and let me tell you, being a TV show host ain't as easy as it looks. Now I know y'all see me cracking jokes on Family Feud and having a good time with the contestants, but there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes that y'all don't get to see. So today, I'm gonna take you through a day in my life as a TV show host.
I wake up bright and early every morning at 5:00 AM. Gotta start the day off right with some prayer and meditation to keep myself grounded. Then I hit the gym for an hour-long workout session because staying healthy is important in this business.
Afterwards, I head back home for breakfast with my beautiful wife Marjorie. She always makes sure there's something delicious waiting for me at the table - whether it's her famous pancakes or some mouthwatering eggs Benedict.
Prepping For The Show
Once breakfast is done, it's time to get down to business. My team of producers sends over all the information about our upcoming episodes - who our guests are gonna be, what topics we'll be discussing - so I can familiarize myself before hitting that stage.
I spend hours going through scripts and researching each guest thoroughly because nothing irks me more than someone coming on my show unprepared! As much as people think hosting game shows is all fun and games (pun intended), there’s actually quite a bit of prep work involved.
By midday, everything starts getting real hectic around here. It’s showtime folks! When those studio lights go up and cameras start rolling – magic happens!
But let me tell ya’ll somethin’. Hosting ain’t just about reading cue cards or introducing contestants; nah man…there’s way more happening backstage than meets your eye. I’m talking about quick costume changes, makeup touch-ups and constantly being on my A-game.
Connecting with the Audience
One of the best parts of being a TV show host is interacting with all you amazing folks out there. Whether it's through social media or in-person during tapings, getting to connect with my audience brings me so much joy.
I love hearing your stories, your laughter, and sometimes even shedding some tears together. It’s these moments that make me realize how blessed I am to be doing what I do.
Now let me tell y'all something - behind-the-scenes shenanigans are real! We might have our serious faces on when the cameras roll, but as soon as they cut away for commercial breaks...all bets are off!
The crew members crack jokes left and right; we dance around like nobody's watching (well except for those sneaky cameramen), and we keep each other entertained throughout those long hours of shooting. After all, laughter is contagious!
Wrapping Up The Day
Once all episodes for the day have been shot and everything has wrapped up…it’s time for some well-deserved relaxation! You see folks; hosting ain’t just about looking good in front of the camera – it takes a toll both physically and mentally.
So at this point in my day…you’ll most likely find me chilling at home with Marjorie again – maybe catching up on our favorite shows or simply enjoying each other’s company over dinner. And yes ladies…I cook too! Your boy can whip up some mean soul food if you know what I’m sayin’!
After dinner comes family time where we gather ‘round sharing laughs & stories from back in the day until bedtime rolls around because tomorrow starts another early morning hustle…and that cycle repeats itself every single day!
And there you have it folks - a glimpse into what goes down in the life of your favorite TV show host, yours truly, Steve Harvey. It ain't always glamorous and it sure ain't easy, but I wouldn't trade this job for anything else in the world.
So next time you see me on your screens cracking jokes or making funny faces on Family Feud, just remember that there's a whole lot more to being a TV show host than meets the eye. And I'm grateful every day that y'all let me be a part of your lives through this crazy journey called television.
Until next time folks - keep laughing and spreading love!
Peace out, Steve
