Plot Synopsis

Co-hosted by siblings Kevin and Frankie Jonas, CLAIM TO FAME is a one-hour reality series that challenges 12 celebrity relatives to step outside their famous family member's shadow and live together under one roof, concealing their identity and lineage in the quest for their own fame and fortune. They compete in challenges, form alliances and play DNA detective in hopes of avoiding elimination and winning the $100,000 prize. After being introduced in the series premiere, the 12 contestants are tasked with competing in a talent show for their first challenge, with one contestant ultimately facing elimination. In the second episode -- after the first elimination -- contestants keep their friends close and their secrets closer as new alliances are formed, and more identities are revealed. This week's challenge tests the senses, giving contestant's clues about their fellow housemate's identities they can only feel, not see. A close round of voting in the Voto Booth ends in another elimination with the remaining contestants one step closer to winning the $100,000.

Season 2 of CLAIM TO FAME premiered on Monday, June 26, 2023 at 8pm ET/PT on ABC. Hosts Kevin and Franklin Jonas introduce the 12 celebrity relatives living under one roof and concealing their lineage for the $100,000 prize. They compete in challenges, form strategic partnerships and play DNA detective in hopes of avoiding elimination, winning the prize and step out of their famous family member's shadow by staking their own "Claim to Fame." The season opener, "Megastars and Metldowns," features a talent show for the challenge, determining who faces elimination in the Guess Off.
On Monday, August 28, 2023 from 8-10pm ET/PT, ABC premiered "Disco Balls and Clue Walls; Needle in a Haystack," the two-part Season 2 finale of CLAIM TO FAME. Tensions are high and the competition has hit its peak. One player's long-game strategy is revealed during the first challenge, while the final three get help from past contestants in their last race to uncover clues.
