What transpired on Claim to Fame Season 1 Episode 6?

Claim to Fame Episode 6 began with seven contestants: Louise, Logan, Pepper, Amara, Kai, L.C., and Lark. In this week's episode, the contestants took part in the most crucial challenge of the season.

The official synopsis of the episode titled Poker Face reads:

"The remaining seven contestants grow closer but keep their eyes on the prize as this week’s challenge is the most revealing yet. Attached to a lie detector test, contestants take turns sitting in the hot seat answering yes or no questions about their relatives."

The synopsis further reads:

"They must decide whether to tell the truth or lie, and while all attempt to give their best poker face, only one contestant wins immunity from the Guess Off. Back at the house, an alliance influences which clue is drawn and those facing elimination make their case to be The Guesser."

To complete the challenge, the Claim to Fame contestant had to sit with a polygraph machine to answer their questions truthfully while another player asked the required questions with the help of fellow cast members. Each player got 5 minutes to answer their questions, and the one with the most accurate answers got immunity from this week.

While the contestants were somewhat sure of some celebrity relative identities based on players' answers to questions, they failed to find more clues regarding Pepper and Logan. While they all knew Louise's identity, Kai took the opportunity to ask her frivolous questions, which included hinting at a possible fling with Logan.

Kai handed over the immunity to Louise by asking her the wrong questions. However, the former found herself at the bottom with Amara. While Kai colluded with LC and Amara to reveal Pepper's clue that Brittany had given to Kai before leaving, Logan and Louise decided to find out who Amara was.

Amara became an easy target to identify ahead of the final guess-off round. While Kai and Amara were on board with the big reveal, Logan wasn't too set on the same. Meanwhile, Louise confronted Logan for wanting to get her clue. The latter saved himself by telling her that it was better for Louise to find her clue than anyone else.

The twists and turns keep on coming 😱 Thank you for watching #ClaimtoFame! 👋

In the final round of Claim to Fame, Amara was chosen to be the guesser, and she decided Kai's identity be revealed. The former guessed Kai was related to American comedian Tiffany Haddish and it was indeed correct. Kai was the next contestant to be eliminated from the competition.

Claim to Fame is getting interesting with each passing episode. With Kai's elimination, only six contestants are left to fight in the competition. The upcoming episode will have the players form stronger strategies and play smartly to keep themselves safe and move forward to win the competition.

Tune in to an all-new episode of Claim to Fame next week on Monday, August 22, 2022, at 10.00 pm ET on ABC.
