‘Claim to Fame’ season 3 celebrity relative reveals and clues

ABC’s celebrity relative guessing game Claim to Fame is back for a new season with 11 nepo-players vying to guess each other’s famous family members in hopes of winning a $100,000 prize.

Last season saw the likes of Tom Hanks’ niece (who had one hell of a meltdown when she was revealed), Eddie Murphy’s daughter, Donnie Osmond’s son, former President Jimmy Carter’s grandson, and Nick Cannon’s brother, who won the show. But hosts Franklin Jonas and Kevin Jonas have promised even even more impressive relatives this season.

“I’ll say the biggest celebrity relatives, like the most famous people that we’ve ever had, I think, by far, like ever,” Kevin revealed of the season 3 roster during an interview with SiriusXM’s Smith Sisters Live.

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Bianca.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Eliminated.
Biggest clues: 
Bianca is related to a woman who has won a Peabody Award.
Our prediction: 
Revealed before we had a chance to guess.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts is Bianca’s aunt.

Adam

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Adam.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Adam is related to a Grammy-winning singer, whom he says he sounds just like when he sings. The show insinuates that the lightning bolt and lightbulb on the clue wall are his clues.
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Danny

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Danny.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Danny says his uncle is a pro wrestler, who has won a Grammy, but one of these details is a lie.
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Dedrick

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Dedrick.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Dedrick says his uncle is a singer who has won a best rock song of the year award “on more than a few occasions,” with the latter detail seeming to be a lie. He may have also accidentally revealed that his last name is Jackson.
Our prediction: 
Unless he’s a gaming mastermind, we are trusting that his blunder was unintentional and that his famous relative is Michael Jackson (and Janet and La Toya….)
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Gracie Lou

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Gracie Lou.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Gracie Lou says her uncle is a musician who has won an Emmy, but the musician seems to be a lie — or at least not a country musician, as she reveals she is purposely leaning into a country character to throw others off. The duck on the clue wall is a hint for her relative.
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Hud

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Hud.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Hud says his mom is a singer with a Grammy, but one of these details is untrue.
Our prediction: 
While some Claim to Famers opt to use pseudonyms on the show, such is not the case for Hud. And for those of us with the affliction of keeping track of celeb spawn with unusual names — especially ones who have previously made news for being charged with a crime — it was a dead giveaway that this contestant is John Mellencamp’s son, who was named after the title character of Paul Newman’s 1963 movie.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Jill

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Jill.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Jill’s grandfather is a celebrity.
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Mackenzie

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Mackenzie.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Mackenzie’s dad is a singer who does not have a Tony or any Broadway experience.
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Miguel

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Miguel.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Miguel (not his real name) is related to an Oscar-winning actor, who he suggests he might be lying about being his grandfather. He says he is using a fake name to “make people think I am more Spanish than I actually am.”
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Naomi

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Naomi.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Naomi is related to someone who has won the Young Artist Award. Her wine bottle clue features the following emojis: bra + letter T + backpack + tiara + to/in + torch/club + coffee with croissant (4 times).
Our prediction: 
Her wine bottle clue is a pretty dead giveaway that she’s related to a woman in the Brat Pack who probably starred in The Breakfast Club, so we are predicting that Naomi is related to Molly Ringwald, who won the Young Artist Award for Best Leading Young Actress in a Feature Film in 1984 for Sixteen Candles.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.

Shane

‘Claim to Fame’ contestant Shane.

Erica Hernandez/Disney


Status: Still in the game.
Biggest clues: 
Shane says his cousin is an actor with an Oscar, but one detail is a lie. He calls them an “icon in Hollywood” and claims he’s visited Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. 
Our prediction: 
Too early to tell.
Celebrity relative revealed:
Not yet.
