CLAIM to Fame fans have slammed the series’ “unfair” playstyle after a clue was deemed too obvious.
Tonight was the show’s season finale and Monay was going up against Chris because she thought she knew who his famous relative was.
Previously, Chris’ family member was guessed wrong three times – making him a tough nut to crack on Claim to Fame.
In a trailer for the episode, Chris said he feels “invincible” because his relative has been guessed wrong so many times.
Fans on X, formerly known as Twitter, were even sure he would win, saying, “Chris will probably win because nobody can guess his celebrity relative.”
When Monay faced him, it was her last chance to take him out.
Looking him in the eye, she said, “Chris, I think your claim to fame rests with Donny Osmond.”
THE BIG DISCLOSURE
It was quickly revealed that Monay was right and that Chris is the 65-year-old actor’s son.
Chris was warm to Monay but was visibly upset at his loss.
She told him, “I knew I could do it. It was the lunch box today.”

The clue she’s referring to is a vintage lunch box featuring his father, Donny, and his aunt, Marie.
Donny and Marie were on a popular variety show that aired in the 1970s.
Chris started crying before his farewell speech, saying, “My dad is my hero.”
“He achieved a lot and started when he was five years old. He’s been doing it for 60 years.”
Donny also had a small cameo on the show for filming a video telling Chris he did a great job on the game show.
In the end, Gabriel Cannon, Nick Cannon’s little brother, won the show after correctly guessing Monay’s identity in the finale’s shocking revelation.
Gabriel revealed Monay, whose real name is Jerrica, to be the daughter of actor JB Smoove.
i hate the system
Fans of the show turned their backs on Claim to Fame after Chris was sent home because they felt his latest tip was unfair.
One said: “So Chris’ clue was a lunch box with his father’s photo on it, while Monay’s and Gabriel’s clues were objects. Apparently the producers had decided who they didn’t want to win.”
Another said: “Chris should have won PERIOD! The reference to the lunch box was too obvious.”
A third said: “Was it fair that Chris’ clue was a lunch box with his father’s picture on it?
Someone else said, “That lunch box reference was SO unfair!”
A fifth said: “Honestly, as Chris’ hint, the lunch box was dirty, like it was practically a picture of his relatives as a definite giveaway.”
