ABC’s Claim to Fame, which also streams on Hulu, is one of the most exciting new reality TV competition formats in years.

The relatives of celebrities try to /guess who their fellow players are related to, getting clues in challenges. Kevin Jonas and Frankie Jonas are great hosts, and not just for the joke that Frankie is the unknown Jonas brother.

Alas, the final two episodes of season 2 have been pushed back a week by the finale of The Bachelorette.

At least the week provides a good opportunity to watch or re-watch both seasons—and to see how much season 2 has improved.

Below are reality blurred’s recaps of Claim to Fame seasons 1 and 2—and hopefully, in the future, many more seasons!
