'Claim to Fame' is a Kinetic and Walt Disney Television Alternative production which is off-beta in its own sense and follows 12 celebrity relatives living under one roof as they try to conceal their well-known families. These relatives will be competing in challenges, forming alliances, and dodging eliminations to win the ultimate $100,000 cash price. The series is hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas and premiered on ABC, available on Hulu, Monday, July 11, at 10 pm ET. The premiere itself was a rocking start as it ended with a huge twist. 

Maxwell Norris became the first contestant to be eliminated from the show, which was filmed in front of a live audience. Maxwell is the grandson of the legendary actor Carlos Ray Norris, famously known as Chuck Norris. In the episode titled 'It's All Relative', Maxwell was caught using a cell phone which is prohibited on the show. Before the departure, Max said, "It was a great three days. I love you all. We'll be in touch," to which Kevin replied, "We know you have a phone." The announcement was made right before contestant Pepper was going to take a guess at Maxwell's family identity in the elimination round. She later guessed that Maxwell was related to Steven Spielberg, before it was revealed that he was related to Chuck Norris, a Hollywood star and martial arts legend.

At the start of the game, Kevin said, "As you know, when you came to the house, we took all your devices to protect your identities, keep away information, to make sure the game was fair to everyone. One of you has broken that rule. As you guys know we take this very seriously. We want you to take the game seriously. The rules are in place for a reason," said Kevin as the background played footage of Maxwell using a cell phone under bed sheets, continuing, "And that is why you will be going home tonight." Maxwell's elimination came as a big shock, considering it was the premiere episode and he was ALREADY cheating. Of course, people had their opinions that they shared online. Before we get into that, let's take a look at Maxwell and from where he belongs.
