The comedian and TV host on marriage, baby back ribs, and one cool Cadillac.

Best Style Tip
To all the guys out there: You're not doing anyone a service with the shirt untucked and the pants sagging. Every woman loves a well-dressed man. You can never go wrong with a nice suit.

Best Splurge
My 1940 Cadillac Series 62 convertible. It's cream, with navy blue seats and a drop top. A few times a month I throw on a baseball cap, light a cigar and spend a few hours driving around Chicago. That car sure is pretty.

Best Relationship Advice
You can be happy, or you can be right. If you want to be part of a couple and win every argument, you're in trouble.

Best Reason to Stay Up All Night
I don't have much of an attention span for TV—I nod off during the basketball playoffs—but when I watch Game of Thrones on On Demand, I'm glued to the set. It's mystical and addictive. Tyrion Lannister, that's my man.

Best Recipe
Baby back ribs. I put them in a smoker, throw on a delicious dry rub called W'ham, and let them go for at least an hour. Sometimes even I'm stunned by how flavorful they turn out.

Best Pickup Line
The first time I saw my wife, Marjorie, I was doing stand-up in Memphis, and she was sitting in the front row. Afterward, I walked up and said, "Ma'am, I'm going to marry you one day." And 15 years later, I did.

Best Mistake
My two failed marriages—the ones before Marjorie. They were challenging, but each taught me how to become a better husband, which inevitably taught me how to be a better man when I walk out the door every day.

Tune in to new seasons of The Steve Harvey Show and Family Feud, which he hosts, this month.
