Who Is Kai From Claim to Fame Related To?

Viewers believe that Kai is related to 42-year-old stand-up comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish.

Some fans had previously linked the pair together after noticing that Tiffany followed Kai on Instagram but now a clue from the August 1 episode has many convinced the theory is correct.

During the episode the players were seen taking part in a fashion show challenge that challenged them to look around one item of clothing that revealed a clue about themselves. The winner of the challenge then received information about a fellow housemate to help them in the game.

In the challenge, Kai donned a floor length white gown which fans believe they have seen before on Tiffany.

As soon as the scene of Kai in the dress aired, fans rushed to Twitter to point it out. "Is Kai Tiffany Haddish sister cuz that looks like the dress she wore to every award show for a year #ClaimtoFame," one wrote, while another posted: "That looks like Tiffany Hadish's famous white dress #ClaimtoFame."

"Ain't that Tiffany Haddish's dress? #ClaimtoFame," wrote a third viewer.

Tiffany famously wore a very similar white dress to several red carpet events between 2017 and 2018. She has since revealed that she had spent $4,000 on the Alexander McQueen garment and decided to get her money's worth by rewearing it.

"I was just devastated. I was very upset that I spent that much money on a dress, period," she told People. "Then I was like, 'Well, I'm going to wear this dress everywhere I go. I'm going to get my money's worth.'"

Tiffany was spotted in the gown at the premiere of her movie Girls Trip in 2017, the 2018 Academy Awards, the 2018 MTV Movie Awards and while she was hosting Saturday Night Live in 2017.

She then brought the dress back out for an appearance in People magazine in 2021.

Meanwhile on Claim to Fame, while Kai's identity is yet to be officially revealed, fans are continuing to speculate about who she and the other contestants may be related to.

Recently, viewers have turned their attention to Dominique. They initially thought that Dominique may be related to Loni Love but now believe that she is the daughter of Reverend Al Sharpton.

Claim to Fame continues Mondays at 10/9c on ABC. Episodes are available to stream on Hulu the day after their airing.
