Claim to Fame Season 1 winner LC talks about her experience

Since the show's beginning, LC (Loreal Chanel) has been a formidable contestant to beat. She brought her A-game to the show and proved to be one of the strongest threats in the game. She managed to keep her identity a secret until the final episode, leading everyone to believe that she was related to actor Laurence Fishburne, when in fact, she is the older sister of actress Keke Palmer.

She also collaborated with fellow Claim to Fame cast member Logan throughout the season to eliminate many strong players and safeguard their position in the game to reach the final two.

Speaking about her experience of working with Logan in an interview with PEOPLE, LC said:

"Working with Logan was such a breath of fresh air. My brother [is like] my little sidekick, so it was kind of having my brother there with me doing this with me. That actually helped keep me somewhat sane because it was like, 'OK, I know that I have at least one person in this house that has proven that I can trust them. And so as long as I have that, I'm OK.'"

Looking back on her experience, LC confessed that the show took an emotional toll on her as there were "real people involved with real feelings." However, she maintained that all the contestants remained good friends since the show's filming. LC said:

"We have a group chat and then we have individual conversations going on. I'm hoping that we always keep in contact because it was just such a unique experience bringing people together who otherwise probably never would've even met. It's like I'm walking away with 11 new friends."

With the prize money, the Claim to Fame winner plans to take her children on a big trip to Disneyland and use the rest to start her own production company as she wishes to make horror movies. LC also revealed that she had the full support of her sister Keke.


Claim to Fame has been officially renewed for Season 2, and a casting call has been made. Viewers have loved to witness the contestants' journey this season and are already excited to see what's in store for them in the next installment.
