10 Times Game Show Hosts Just Couldn't Keep It Together

Being a game show host is normally a pretty nice job. You smile, congratulate the contestants and hand out prizes. But like any job it can get on your nerves sometimes.

Rude contestants, outrageous answers and TV magic all inspired these 10 moments where hosts lost their cool:

1. Bob Barker's worst contestant ever

10 Chances is one of the more obscure Price is Right games, but it's not rocket science. Contestants have to unscramble a group of numbers to make the price, and they have (you guessed it) 10 chances to get the right answer.

But a contestant named Joy gave Bob Barker a headache during her appearance. Maybe stage fright got the best of her, because she could barely write an answer and almost ruins her chance to win a new car. Bob's frustration really shows by the end.

"Write Joy! Write!"

2. Gilbert Gottfried cracks up Hollywood Squares

One of the best parts of Hollywood Squares was the fact that contestant had to depend on celebrities for the right answers. Every answer you picked was a test of both your knowledge and the celebrity you were counting on.

In this classic segment, Gilbert Gottfried manages to come up with a few right answers and a few more wrong ones, much to the chagrin of the contestants who manage to get it wrong every time. Before he even shouts "You fool!" for the last time the other hosts are already laughing.

3. Steve Harvey handles a rude contestant

Half the fun of Family Feud comes from host Steve Harvey's baffled reactions to the answers his contestants come up with. People say the most hilarious things when they're under pressure, and he always seems shocked by their responses.

But his reaction to an unfriendly contestant was even funnier. When his handshake was turned down, Harvey lets the woman know just how it made him feel and makes the audience laugh out of their seats.

4. Howie Mandel's hidden prize

Before he joined the panel of judges on America's Got Talent, Mandel was famous for hosting Deal or No Deal, the nail-bitingly tense show where contestants discovered if the briefcase they picked contained $1 million.

The Banker was trying to tempt this contestant into leaving with the new car hidden behind this giant lemon, but she didn't quite understand. Howie realized there was no way to bring back the tension after her hilarious slip.

How about a clip from Family Feud that made the show an all-time classic?
