Harvey experienced gone to function internet hosting Celebrity Family Feud like any other working day, but when he came residence and peeked into his closet, it appeared a tiny…bare. “Don’t it look a tiny skimpy in here?” Harvey remembers pondering. Internet hosting the clearly show needed dressing with a sure diploma of repetition. He missed coloration, especially—he fondly remembers sporting a pink fit with white pinstripes. “My motto is to be fly ‘till I die,” he claims.

But receiving back to fly expected a very little little bit of aid. In an hard work to revamp his wardrobe, Harvey’s wife and Elly Karamoh, the stylist the pair share, hatched a clandestine prepare. Although Harvey was out, they pruned massive cache of video game demonstrate-completely ready satisfies without his know-how. “If my wife was not associated, I would kick his ass,” Harvey jokes.

The makeover success had been challenging to overlook: Harvey went from baggy fits to slim-fit Canadian tuxedos, leather-based pants, and all emerald-green satisfies. But a spate of current pics have long gone especially viral, turning Harvey into a bona fide influencer.

GQ: What encouraged you to begin dressing in this new way?
Steve Harvey: Nicely, guy, it was sort of unusual due to the fact I gown like this when I am not at get the job done, but I’m always photographed at function. And immediately after I employed Elly and we did [the] NFL Honors [awards show] two yrs ago,the men and women at Movie star Household Feud claimed, “Why you should not we allow Steve gown like that on Celeb Household Feud?” And that opened up the door. Simply because on Superstar Household Feud, the way they shot the present, I experienced to wear the exact same suit every single show—I could just decide on a dim blue or black or a gray.

And Facebook Check out came alongside and said, “We really don’t want you to costume like you did on your speak demonstrate. We want you to gown like you do in your working day to working day.” So I went to Elly and stated, “Alright, person, they are heading to let me do my detail. I have to have your assist to aid me get the things that I like, since I really don’t know the place to get 50 percent of this stuff.” So that was the beginning of it ideal there: they took the shackles off and did not need that I costume as a video game present host all the time.

Why did they want you to gown like that?
Properly, simply because the way they shoot Celeb Spouse and children Feud, they in no way know which purchase they’re likely to air the displays. So on the break, at the finish of the first present, I’ll say, “Hey, remain tuned. We will have new people appear up,” and we did not know who I was going to tape, so they questioned me to don the very same issue all the time. In the 1st couple yrs of Movie star Household Feud, if you go back, that is all I had—the similar fit.
