Who is X on 'Claim to Fame'? Here are the clues so far.

X is quite a mysterious character, and that appears to be by his own design. According to PopSugar, the contestant has lied about his name and also lied that his famous relative is his father. Yikes.

However, X has shared a few truths. One is that his famous relative is an actor, and the biggest award they've received is an Emmy.

As for work, X shares that he has a career as a composer and performer.

Fans have some guesses about who X is related to, and many believe that it's Laverne Cox.

One other major tidbit that X revealed is that he has a twin sister. This immediately had fans speculating (given the Emmy context) that X is related to Laverne Cox of Orange Is the New Black fame.

Naturally, many took to social media to voice their opinions on the theory.
