Al Sharpton’s daughter unfortunately got eliminated from ABC reality show Claim to Fame.
Yahoo! reports that Dominique Sharpton, Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter, got discovered during the latest episode of Claim to Fame. Her identity was uncovered by her other fellow housemates/contestants, particularly Logan, who realized from the various clues given, including mustaches, religious iconography, and sharpeners, that Dominique was related to Sharpton.
Sharpton copped to it, admitting that she was, in fact, Sharpton's daughter.
Dominique said regarding her father’s career, “The work that he does is not very easy at times, so I’ve been very proud of my dad for the imnportant work that he did and for putting his life on the line, as he does every day, to really make the world a better place.”
"I'm proud of him for being unapologetic in everything that he does, and I've tried to carry on in everything that I do, including being here," she continued.
Claim to Fame is hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas and features relatives of celebrities, who must guess who each contestant is related to to win a cash prize.
According to the official description:
Hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas, this new series challenges 12 celebrity relatives to step outside their famous family member’s shadow and live together under one roof, concealing their identity and lineage in the quest for their own fame and fortune. They will compete in challenges, form alliances and play DNA detective in hopes of avoiding elimination and winning the coveted $100,000 prize, and staking their own “Claim to Fame”! “Claim to Fame” is produced by Kinetic Content (“Love Is Blind,” “Married at First Sight”) in association with Walt Disney Television’s newly formed alternative production unit. Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler and Scott Teti serve as executive producers; Paul Osborne serves as the showrunner and executive producer, and Brian Smith serves as director and executive producer.
