There’s a new reality competition show on tv and if its premiere episode is any indication, we’re in for a huge treat.
Claim to Fame is a new primetime competition that challenges mystery contestants to guess the identity of other contestants. All of the contestants have one thing in common….they are related to someone famous. The show, hosted by pop star Kevin Jonas and his not-quite-so-famous brother Frankie, gives a group of celebrity relatives and opportunity to win $100,000 by competing in a series of challenges while keeping their identity hidden.
At the conclusion of Monday’s premiere, Kevin and Frankie shocked competitors when they revealed that one of their own was being disqualified for cheating. One of the rules of the competition is that phones are prohibited because it would be too easy for cheating to occur. Unfortunately, one of the players snuck a phone in and was caught on camera using it while hiding his upper body under a comforter.
Maxwell Norris, grandson of legendary martial arts guru and actor Chuck Norris, was the the first star eliminated due to cheating.
Maxwell would’ve only had to stay out the bottom and he probably would’ve won the whole thing. Who would’ve guessed Chuck Norris ?? #ClaimToFame

Fellow contestant Logan responded to the disqualification saying, “I’d be nervous to go home to my grandfather, and my grandfather ain’t even Chuck Norris. So good luck. Have fun, Max.”
