How to Meet the Folks: Staying Alive During Dinner

– I’m here with my man,
Omete, and I’m preparing him to meet his girlfriend’s
parents for the first time. So, what do you think will be your biggest challenge here, Omete? – I want, in this short
time, kind of show them as much of myself as possible and let them know that their daughter is safe and protected,
and being loved with me. I don’t want them walk away thinking that she is not in good
hands when she’s with me. (applause) – [Steve Harvey] You know something? Can I tell y’all something? I like Omete. If Omete came for one of my daughters, I’d have the pressure on him, but on the inside I’ll feel
a little something for him. Cause he alright, you know? (applause) – [Omete] Thank you man. – [Steve] So, alright let’s go. So we’ve sat down at
the dinner table and uh, let’s just see how the conversation goes. – Where are you from? – [Omete] I’m from Houston, Texas sir. Born and raised, then I
came out to California to go to school. – What are you studying? – [Omete] I graduated from
USC with neuroscience degree but um… (applause) – [Steve] Wait, you graduated with what? – With a neuroscience degree. – Wow. – Aw, damn. (laughter) (applause) – How did you two meet? – We actually met through a mutual friend when she came to Los Angeles
to work on her music, she came to my birthday. I just, I could tell she
was in incredible person and um…(laughs) and I uh, I asked if we could
be friends, and from there we started an amazing
friendship that evolved into a beautiful relationship. – So you looked at our
daughter and you just thought she was an incredible person? What was it that you saw about
her that was so incredible? – I saw the God in her, you know. I definitely…she beams God-ness. (applause) – [Father] Well, we
are a religious family. We are religious. You
know, I’m a pastor, so. – Yeah, no she’s told me
a lot about her upbringing and I know everything that
she is is just an example of what you guys are and
what you’ve instilled in her and I was really attracted
to the way, you know, without being too pushy
or being too passive, she really exudes God’s
love and kinda is a walking ministry in herself,
so I know that has to be completely from you guys, so. (applause) – [Mother] So, I have an
important question for you. (cheers and applause) So are you keeping it holy? – [Omete] Um, yeah. – What did you say? – [Mother] Are they keeping it holy? (clears throat) – Absolutely, we are most
definitely keeping it holy in every day. We go to
church every Sunday. Every Sunday. (laughter) Um. (laughs) – [Father] Uh huh. – [Mother] He got that look on his face. – Let me tell you something. – [Omete] How to do I answer that one? – When they ask you if
are you keeping it holy, there is no good answer for this so you’re best bet is to break
off into a negro spiritual. (laughs) – Just right here? – See, watch. Let me
show you how to do that. Ask me the question. – [Mother] I need to
know are you keeping it holy with my daughter. – Well, I could just
have one thing to say… ♪Swing low, ♪ ♪ sweet chariot, ♪ ♪coming forth to carry me home ♪ – [Steve] Okay, let me do
just one thing with you. You’re getting up to leave
and head over to the door so just show me your goodbye to the folks. Let me just see that right quick. – Okay, well, thank you
so much for having me. I really appreciate that. Everything, the food was amazing. Um. Bye. (laughs) – [Omete] That’s all I got. – Hey look, at the table, I got it. – Omete say….(laughs) Man, that food was amazing. Bye. Omete that ain’t bad at all man. You’re alright, man. Hey, good luck meeting the folks. – [Steve] You and
Tiyonna, it outta go well.

  2. Noooo He is a little too slick with his answers. Tell me what you really think so I can know who you really are. I would not trust him.

  3. This guy is killing me …Steve is the best advisor.. Wooww..this whole entire episode of you and Omete are killing it and the crowd is loving it ..wish the best for Omete

  4. I'm studying Forensic Medicine I hope my girl's family gonna react like Uncle Steve did. It would unleash the lyricist in me 😁

  5. When I first saw this guy, I said….. β€œHe looks African”. Then he said his name was Omete…… And I was like β€œOh, he is African”…… Then he said he was from Houston TX…. And I was like β€œreally?”…. The next question should be β€œwhere are your parents from?” He should just be open and honest from the beginning.

  6. last time I studied science (biologi) I stopped believing in god, knowing the evolution theori and all that is more trustworthy and they got proof. Religion only has stuff written on a book with no proof whatsoever. I’m amazed he’s still believing in god after all the studies

  7. After he said he graduated with a neuroscience degree he said but ugh. Then he got cut off I wonder what he was gonna say

  8. Omete can surely come for my daughter… i am not married and do not even have a daughter yet…Jokes aside, I have definitely learnt a lot from this….

  9. Best thing ever. The young man is really gracious, smart, kind, and really putting time to do his homework. That shows respect and honor to the woman, her family, his family and …community. A lost art of civil respect in 2019. this is a fine example of how to do it right.

  10. Just be yourself! If your future in-laws can't respect your honest opinions, then they're not the ones for you! And definitely hug, kiss, and shake hands!

  11. Saw the God in her? Shut up🀣🀣🀣🀣
    He was like β€œbye” 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣I can not

  12. I hate how people think degrees define people. Don't think you're god's gift because of a piece of paper. He sounds like a good guy but too many dudes, especially black, lead with a degree as if its a ticket into perfection.

  13. That’s an example of a good man. It’s not the choice of his words u can feel it. He seems to be a good friend too and not just a boyfriend. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  14. Idk if you guys all do that in the US but it seems a bit old fashion, the meeting with the parents & the big talks. If the boy is good to your daughter its gonna show up in all the times he'll meet the parents. I mean idk it'll come naturally, no need to scare the boy away for no reasons.

  15. Awesome haaa!!! Wow though, who was the woman in the red oooπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰β€β€πŸ˜Ž

  16. I think he had a good answer to "Are you keeping it holy"!… "Yes we go to church every Sunday!"

  17. can he come meet my father please?! pleasant, intelligent young black king! his gf, and her parents, are very lucky!

  18. Aye he got that on lock πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
