Who Claim To Fame’s X Might Be Related To (Spoilers)

Claim to Fame’s X is one of the most intriguing contestants. This spoiler post may just uncover his mysterious celebrity connection.

Warning: This article may contain SPOILERS!

On Claim to Fame, X has been one of the most mysterious contestants, but his clues reveal that he may be related to an extremely well-known person. Everyone on the series has a famous celebrity relative, and the goal of each competitor is to keep that person a secret in order to win the $100,000 cash prize. The cast members live together in a house and compete in challenges, form alliances, and play “DNA detective” in order to uncover each other’s identities. No one on the show (not even the Claim to Fame hosts, Frankie and Kevin Jonas) has any idea which contestants are related to which celebrities.


Everything in the Claim to Fame house could be a clue, including the statues and paintings. There is also a Clue Wall, which contains pictures and 3D images of objects that are hints as to the celebrity relatives’ identities. Even though fellow contestant Dominique was starting to put the pieces together about who X might be, he won the second competition, so he had immunity from anyone guessing his identity.

X is one the most intriguing contestants on Claim to Fame season 1. He is so mysterious that his fellow houseguests have joked that he might be a vampire. X dresses completely in black, with black eye makeup and long black hair. X might actually be actress Laverne Cox’s twin brother, Reginald Lamar Cox, known professionally as M Lamar. X had previously revealed that his celebrity relative is best known for being an Emmy-winning actor. In 2015, Laverne won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Special, as the executive producer for Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word. She was the first transgender woman to win the award.

Another clue was revealed during the ABC show’s episode 2 guessing game, in which the contestants had to feel objects that were clues and guess what they were. There was an orange in one of the rounds, which the show confirmed was related to X. This furthered the Laverne clues, as Dominique thought that the orange might be related to Orange is the New Black. Laverne, who starred as Sophia Burset on Orange is the New Black, was the first transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in an acting category. Dominique also realized that X looked so much like Laverne that they could be twins. X had previously told the Claim to Fame viewers that his downfall on the show is that his relative is his twin sister, and they look exactly alike. He played Laverne’s character pre-transition on two episodes of OTNB. These clues point to the fact that X is probably M Lamar, Laverne’s twin. Even though Dominique was starting to put the pieces of the X puzzle together, X did not have to worry this week because he won the challenge, and gained immunity from the Guess-Off.

During the Claim to Fame episode 1 talent show, X shared with viewers that he is a composer and a performer. He played the piano and sang in a high-pitched, operatic voice. Similarly, M Lamar is a composer, performer, and artist. He is an operatic countertenor and pianist. His official web site, mlamar.com, has many photographs and videos that look exactly like X, indicating that they are one and the same.

The Claim to Fame contestant X looks exactly like Laverne, there are many clues which support that he is her twin brother, M Lamar. The Orange is the New Black revelation helped to break through X’s enigmatic persona. A visit to M Lamar’s official web site also confirms X’s identity. Time will tell if X’s fellow competitors are able to uncover his Claim to Fame.
