The love between Steve Harvey and Michael B. Jordan seems to be just as strong as that between the Sexiest Man Alive and his girlfriend Lori Harvey. Since the couple went Instagram official in January, people won’t stop asking Harvey about the duo, and the Family Feud host is never afraid to oblige. It seems the host is still hilariously trying to dislike Jordan, but according to what he told Ellen DeGeneres, his approach isn’t taking.
Steve Harvey continued his lovefest for Michael B. Jordan on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where the host told Harvey she knew about the couple’s relationship even before the public did. She revealed that Jordan had asked her and her wife Portia de Rossi about getting horses for a romantic date for Lori Harvey's birthday. Sounds like an awesome dude, right? Here's Steve Harvey's take on trying to find a flaw with the Black Panther star:
You know what, I have tried not to like him. I have tried to find something wrong with him that I could dig in and go, 'cause I done got rid of all of them. All of them. Some of them that snuck in the back door on me and lasted a lot longer than I wanted it to. But this guy is such a good guy, man.
After complimenting Michael B. Jordan, Steve Harvey then gushed about spending personal time with the Hollywood star. He revealed that the awesomeness didn't skip a generation either, bringing up meeting Jordan’s father for the first time.
He’s one of the nicest guys, man, I’ve met his father. We’ve sat up and talked for hours, I just can’t find nothing wrong with him. I’m hoping to. Between me and you -- well this ain’t nothing between me and you, hell we’re on TV-- I’m hoping this last because this is a really good guy, man.
Steve Harvey mentioned not being able to take Michael B. Jordan in a fight compared to his stepdaughter’s other exes, but we'll assume that's not the only reason why he's so nice to the younger actor. Ellen DeGeneres also felt that Jordan was more serious about his relationship with Lori Harvey, at least compared to his past girlfriends. She reassured Harvey that Jordan and his stepdaughter might be in it for the long haul, to which Harvey whispered, “Oh, god, I hope so.”
Steve Harvey’s expression told the story of a father who’s watched his little girl go from one not-so-amazing relationship to the next. Considering Lori Harvey’s high-profile relationships in years prior, the older Harvey had every right to wary of someone like Jordan. But given his words about Jordan, the Family Feud host appears to have taken a major liking to the Hollywood star.
Ellen DeGeneres was the latest stop on Steve Harvey’s Michael B. Jordan & Lori Harvey Love Tour (not a real title). He recently joked about Jordan’s Sexiest Man Alive title on Jimmy Kimmel Live! while calling him “a nice guy.” He even talked about the Hollywood couple on his talk show, where he first mentioned liking the actor. I see a pattern forming here. Much like Harvey, fans of the couple are hoping this relationship is here to stay, for a while at least.
