THE new season of Claim to Fame has just begun, and already there is a gamer that everyone despises.
The game show challenges a group of contestants to discover who each of their celebrity relatives is.
Kevin and Frankie Jonas, themselves lesser-known relatives of famous stars, host the show.
Monday’s season premiere featured twelve contestants who aren’t famous themselves but are related to A-listers.
Over the course of the season, the contestants of “Claim to Fame” must lie and do their best to protect the identities of their relatives and win $100,000.
However, one of the mysterious relatives has become the series’ new instant target.
During an opening session of “Two Truths and a Lie,” “Hugo said his celebrity relative is his grandfather, he is best known as an athlete, and he has won a Nobel Prize.
The athlete part was a lie, but Hugo spent the rest of the episode dressing and acting like a professional athlete himself.
He even tried lifting some heavy weights. But nobody bought it.
Throughout the episode, fans expressed their displeasure with the cocky contestant.

“How did Hugo become a villain so quickly?” one person tweeted. “Or is it just me?”
Another cried: “16 minutes into Season 2 and I already hate Hugo!”
“Hugo sure didn’t waste any time becoming this season’s most obnoxious contestant,” raged one viewer.
Another added: “He’s so smug!” while one person said: “Huge is kinda annoying!”
Others said Hugo looked like another controversial figure: Elon Musk.
“Hugo is definitely related to Elon Musk,” one person tweeted, while another claimed, “I feel like I’ve seen Hugo’s face before.”
“Reminds me a lot of Elon Musk,” one fan tweeted, and another commented, “Is Hugo related to Elon Musk?”
Elon, 51, is an entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, but has caused controversy since acquiring Twitter for $44 billion
By the end of the episode, Hugo was equally unpopular with his fellow players and was the week’s loser.
That meant he had to correctly guess a roommate’s identity or reveal his connection and be sent home.
Hugo decided to guess who Carly was related to and settled on Tom Hanks.
Hugo was right and earned himself another week of competition.
Carly immediately burst into tears and admitted she was shocked when Hugo picked her and got the connection right.
She then turned to him and yelled that she “helped him.”
“I swear I hope you go home!” she exclaimed.
On the way out, she suffered a complete breakdown and lamented the lost time on the show.
“I didn’t deserve this!” she cried through tears. “I should have had more camera time!” I should have been here longer!”
“Claim to Fame” airs Mondays at 8/7 p.m. on ABC.
