Season 2 of ABC’s Claim to Fame features 12 new competitors striving to keep their famous relative’s identity a secret from the other participants. Franklin “Frankie” Jonas and his brother, fellow star Kevin Jonas, return as cohosts of the reality guessing game.
They’re a fun duo to watch as they get the competitors excited for each new clue revelation throughout challenges. Whoopi Goldberg’s granddaughter, Cindy Crawford’s niece, and the twin of Laverne Cox were among the contestants from the previous season.
Season 2 looks to match or surpass that level of celebrity power, with the removal of the niece of one of the world’s most recognized actors in the season premiere on June 26. This season, the housemates are keeping their celebrity ties to themselves a secret, and so are the viewers at home.
Read on as we compile the most important hints about each participant, offer our guesses about their famous ancestors, and keep tabs on every reveal.

Carly is Tom Hanks’ niece
With the help of props like a Forrest Gump bench, the ensemble could identify “Carly” as Tom Hanks’ niece Carly Reeves.
She was born and raised in Los Angeles, and she has been in films including Raise Your Voice (2004), in which she played a “mean girl” opposite Hilary Duff, and Charlie Wilson’s War (1999) and Larry Crowne (1999), in which she acted alongside her Oscar-winning uncle.
The 39-year-old, who now works exclusively in commercials, used all of her honed theatrical skills in the aftermath of her expulsion.
Carly tells Bustle, “At first, I was a little embarrassed, but also, I know myself.” Her mother is the sister of Rita Wilson. “I’ve always had temper tantrums, so I found it hilarious,” she said.
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s son is named Travis
In the guess-off elimination on July 3, “Travis” was revealed to be 22-year-old Travis Tyson, the son of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Travis Young’s famous father and his wife, Alice Young, sent a video message expressing their pride in their son’s recent graduation from New York University.
Travis commented, “He’s smart, I guess,” about his dad when he recited Pi to the first hundred places in the premiere’s talent show, demonstrating that intelligence runs in the family.
Travis has made an appearance on another ABC reality show before. He and Neil were contestants on an edition of Celebrity Family Feud hosted by Steve Harvey in 2017.
Shayne is the daughter of Eddie Murphy
Most of the housemates believe “Shayne” to be Eddie Murphy’s daughter, Shayne Audra Murphy, even though this has not been proven.
Thanks to Jane’s analysis of Travis’s clue, the ensemble could piece together hints about the Grammy-winning comedian’s appearances in Coming to America and Shrek by recognizing references in the 28-year-old model’s behaviour to her father’s Saturday Night Live Buckwheat character.
Shayne, whose mother is Nicole Murphy, uses her Instagram account Shayne’s Kitchen, to showcase her culinary prowess outside of the context of Claim to Fame.

Karsyn claims that her uncle is a legendary musician with Hall of Fame credentials. However, she does not specify which Hall of Fame. Perhaps she is the niece of Blake Shelton.
Cole claims that his renowned ancestor was his father. He also claims that his “father” is a multi-Grammy award-winning artist. We believe Cole to be Alicia Keys’ sibling.
Gabriel claims that his more well-known brother is the family star. It has been said that the brother is an NAACP Award-winning athlete. We suspect Gabriel is making up the relative’s athleticism when he says he is.
Nick Cannon, a non-athlete who has won multiple NAACP awards, is one possible candidate. She says her dad won a Grammy, but we can’t verify it. One of Dolly Parton’s many nieces, we surmise.
According to Monay, her dad won an Emmy for his athletic prowess. We have reason to believe he is J.B. Smoove, who is not an athlete but does have an Emmy.
SR claims that his sibling is a singer who also won an NBA title. That’s not comparable to that other thing at all. A connection to Dwyane Wade seems plausible.
Olivia claims that her brother is a well-known television personality who has won a Razzie. Is her brother David Muir from ABC News, who was up for a Razzie? It could be Chris Harrison, perhaps.
Hugo claims his well-known grandfather won a Nobel Prize in sports. The claim that you’re an athlete is bogus. According to our best predictions, he may be the grandson of either Al Gore or Jimmy Carter.
Chris says his uncle, a singer with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, is his famous relative. We believe his uncle to be the musician John Mayer, who is missing from the Walk of Fame. Perhaps he is the offspring of Donny Osmond.
