Talk show host Steve Harvey lived in his 1976 Ford Tempo for three years before his big break.
Steve Harvey become the internet’s buzz after hosting Miss Universe 2015 on December 21, 2015. Harvey confused Miss Colombia as Miss Universe 2015 and declared her as the winner when it was in fact Miss Philippines who should be the winner. Harvey apologised for his error, but the netizens seemed to have not taken the error lightly.
Not known to most people, Steve is humble and diligent person who came from humble, even struggling, beginning. The 57-year-old actor, TV personality, and author told People Magazine that when he was just starting out as a comedian in the late 1980s, “one or two gigs fell through,” and he suddenly found himself homeless.
People reported that Harvey lived in his 1976 Ford Tempo for three years — he would wash up in hotel bathrooms, gas stations, or swimming pool showers — until he was called to appear on “Showtime at the Apollo.”
Here are the other celebrities who were once homeless but managed to turn their fate around and got back up and claim their bright future.
