Warning: This article contains spoilers for Season 1 of Claim to Fame.

Season 1 of ABC's newest reality competition series Claim to Fame kicked off on July 11, 2022. Hosted by brothers Kevin Jonas and Frankie Jonas, the name of the game describes it perfectly, Claim to Fame started with 12 contestants who are all in some way related to a celebrity. One contestant is eliminated each episode and their identity is revealed — the last person standing takes home a grand prize of $100,000.

So who went home so far on Claim to Fame?

Who went home on 'Claim to Fame'?

So far, the Claim to Fame contestants who have gone home are: Maxwell, Michael, X, Brittany, Dominique, and Kai.

In Episode 1, "Pepper" was voted by the other contestants as the first guesser. This meant she had to pick one contestant and correctly guess who they are related to. If she was correct, the person she revealed would be eliminated — but if she was wrong, then Pepper would go home.

Ultimately, she ended up choosing Maxwell, convinced he was Steven Spielberg's grandson.

This was when both the cast and viewers at home were thrown a huge curveball. Hosts Joe and Frankie Jonas were briefly ushered off-camera and informed that Maxwell had cheated by using a smartphone during the competition. Because it's against the rules, he was disqualified and sent home.

Had Maxwell not been caught cheating, Pepper would have been the one to go home on Episode 1. That's because her guess was dead wrong, as Max's true identity is Max Norris, the grandson of Chuck Norris.

In Episode 2, Pepper was voted as the guesser for the second time in a row. Pepper chose to expose Michael's celebrity relative as Zendaya — and she was correct, meaning Michael was the second to go home. Michael is actually Zendaya's cousin.

In Episode 3, Lark was voted as the guesser. She chose to guess X's celebrity relative as Laverne Cox — and she was correct. X is actually Laverne Cox’s twin brother, M Lamar.
