Harvey explained how the episode came together and revealed it was actually supposed to feature another famous family at first. "It was supposed to be Kris, Khloe and all of the girls. They were supposed to play against Paris Hilton's family, then the Hiltons cancelled," he explained. When the plan to put Kim against her former friend fell through, Kanye stepped up instead.
"Kanye who is a big fan of Family Feud said I want to play I've always wanted to play," Harvey explained. "So he brought his family... these cousins."
Harvey explained that Kim hopped on one side with Kanye and three of his family members, while the opposing team consisted of her mother Kris Jenner, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie, their grandmother MJ, and family friend Johnathan Cheban.
"Kanye was the best Family Feud celebrity panelist we've ever had on the show," Harvey said. "His people said 'Steve this is the most Kanye has ever smiled since we've been with him!'"
Harvey also hinted that Kim didn't seem to know many of the right answers, but still described it as the "best episode" of the show so far. "We're gonna get the highest ratings we've ever had," he said.
