Claim to Fame Contestants' Celebrity Relatives
12 Celebrity Relatives Reveal Their True Identities on "Claim to Fame"
Who Is X From "Claim to Fame" Related To?
X made it very clear from the start that he was there to win the prize. He initially lied about his name and that his famous relative is his father. He tells the truth when he says his famous relative is an actor and the biggest award they've received is an Emmy. X shares that he is a composer and performer during the talent show. In the second episode of "Claim to Fame," one of the clues the cast members receive is an orange, which is a nod to X's sister, "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox. X's real name is M Lamar.
X is eliminated by Lark in the third episode of the show after she receives a clue from Louise, confirming X's famous relative. As he makes his exit, X had the entire cast tearing up with some beautiful words about his sister.
"I am the identical twin sibling of the Emmy-winning producer, 4-time Emmy-nominated actress, icon, and global superstar Laverne Cox. I want to say in front of the world, I love her so much. I think she's the most extraordinary person I've ever met. She has endured all kinds of insanity and continues to stand with so much dignity and pride and go forward and be an inspiration for so many people. Her success is so much bigger than her. The number of Black trans actresses who are on the covers of magazines, who are starring in television shows, all of that did not exist before my sister. And I just want to thank her and praise her."
Answer: X is Laverne Cox's twin brother.
