They're the Australian family who found fame in the US thanks to late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.

But the Irwin's Aussie twang still proved difficult for Americans to understand.

Competing on the US version of Family Feud, Robert Irwin, 13, tried to answer a question posed by Steve Harvey ... only to leave the host completely baffled. 

As part of the competition, Steve asked the youngest Irwin, "Name something a five-year-old might ask a bank to loan them money to buy."

Though Robert quickly responded "a car", the host had no idea what Robert had said.

A confused Steve could be seen facing someone out of shot and asking "what?" as he tried to make sense of Robert's answer.

He then leaned into the youngster and asked "What'd you say?" before Robert and mother Terri, 52, repeated "a car" several times.

Along with Robert and Terri, Bindi also took part in the Family Feud episode and the Irwin's cousin Daniel Marineau and his wife Sara were brought along to battle against Chrissy Metz and her relatives.

Bindi later told the New York Post her beloved father would have been a "fantastic" contestant on the game show, admitting the family's star player was deeply missed.

"(Dad) had to think at lightning speed when working with beautiful animals like crocodiles," the 18-year-old said.

"That fast thinking would have for sure made him fantastic on the show!"

Regardless, the family dug deep and were the episode's winners, taking home $25,000 for their Wildlife Warriors charity.

Bindi earned a smile from the host after she recalled the time he crowned her father an "honorary black man" on the Steve Harvey Radio Show.

"I would like to commend you for your speed and agility," Steve told the Australian conservationist in their first and only meeting many years ago.

"You are officially a brother - to me right now, you are officially black," he added. 

"Thanks mate! You have no idea how much I appreciate that - I'm just this bloke in Australia doin' my thing and that goes straight to heart," the Aussie Steve replied.
