Each week, one contestant gets eliminated and their celebrity relative is revealed. Since its premiere, viewers have turned into amateur FBI agents, desperately trying to figure out the identity of each contestant, including "Kai."

Although some are struggling to figure out Kai's celebrity relative, we believe we have the answer.

In the first two episodes of Claim to Fame, two contestants have been moving quite stealthily around the house — Lark and Kai. Viewers have noticed this as well, sharing their thoughts on social media.

"Literally who are Lark and Kai??? Literally nonexistent on this show lol," one viewer noted on Twitter. A second fan tweeted that they think Kai will win the competition "because she is so far under the radar you barely even see her."

Kai on 'Claim to Fame' — The Guesses

Spoiler alert: While we don't know for sure who Kai is/the identity of her celebrity relative, the correct identity may be spoiled in the guesses below.

At this point, our best guess is that Kai is related to Tiffany Haddish. Although we're not sure of their relation to one another, it's good to note that we (along with other fans) believe Tiffany follows Kai on Instagram — it's likely this is her account.

OK, we know what you're thinking: Kai's relative has a Grammy.

If you're worried Tiffany doesn't fit the bill, don't fret because the 42-year-old stand-up comedian and actress is, in fact, a Grammy Award winner! She won Best Comedy Album in 2018 for "Black Mitzvah."
