Brittany Favre-Mallion was ruled out.
The daughter of Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre was eliminated Monday from ABC’s summer game show “Claim to Fame.”
The series, hosted by brothers Kevin and Frankie Jonas, puts celebrity loved ones under one roof (like CBS’ “Big Brother”) in a house filled with clues about their well-known relatives (“The Masked Singer” from Fox entered the chat ). The contestant who successfully conceals their identity for the entire 10-episode season receives $100,000.
Favre-Mallion is the fourth to be eliminated, after Laverne Cox’s brother, composer M Lamar; Zendaya’s cousin, music producer Cubb Coleman; and Chuck Norris’ grandson, Maxwell Norris, who was disqualified at the series premiere for sneaking into a cellphone.
Favre-Mallion, 33, says her father, 52, was “so excited” for her to be part of the cast.
“We were like ‘Survivor’, ‘American Idol’ OGs (fans). We love competitive shows,” says Favre-Mallion. “I don’t think he would want me to do reality TV just for the sake of being on reality TV, but the fact that it was a competition, he thought that was really cool. .”

Is it Brittany, daughter of Packers legend Brett Favre, is on ABC’s “Claim to Fame” show?
The Super Bowl champ advised his daughter to “have fun.”
“His whole career was just a game, in the end,” she says. “You’ve got contracts and money and you’ve got that attention, but really you’re just playing a game that kids are also playing. So that was kind of his thing: go ahead, have fun. , be yourself and treat people with respect and enjoy it.”
In Monday’s episode, Favre-Mallion, in the role of guesser, incorrectly linked his compatriot Kai with singer/actress Andra Day, following a tip from fellow player Dominique, whom Favre-Mallion affectionately dubbed “The Domfather”.
“She can sit down and pull the strings,” says Favre-Mallion. “She even said, ‘I’m pretty good at convincing people to do the things that I think are best.’ She’s like that, and I love that.”
Favre-Mallion explains why she told Lark that LC wanted to guess (which was new to LC!), why she didn’t guess the obvious “Louise” (Simone Biles’ look-alike sister Adria), and her regret. (Edited for length and clarity.)

Question: In episode 3, you told your compatriot Lark that LC wanted to be the guesser, which shocked LC. Was it a strategy?
Brittany Favre-Mallion: Nope! It was horrible ! Obviously, there are so many conversations that aren’t part of the show. Another player said to me, “Hey, you and LC need to be separated.” So I go up to Lark. My mistake wasn’t going to LC and saying, “Hey, are you okay with that? Are we meant to be apart? I should have confirmed that to him, and I told him. Because LC knew who I was. So why would I piss her off and then send her off to the riddle corner? It would be crazy.
Q: What goes through your mind in tonight’s episode when it’s revealed that you’re guessing?
Favre Mallion: I was pretty sure I was going home. I wasn’t confident in the guesswork, but I knew I had to do what had to be done. If I choose “Louise”, I still have the target on my back for another week because everyone was still mad at me from the previous guess. If I choose Kai and make this guess that the house wants me to guess, I’m wrong and go home. It’s fine, because I don’t have the target on my back and it worried me a lot, or I’m right and the house doesn’t blame me anymore because I took one for the team.

Q: Do you have any regrets about how you played the game?
Favre Mallion: Part of me wishes I was brave enough to pull out “Louise” and see what happened. Maybe I could have gotten immunity through challenges, and I wouldn’t have had to fight this tough battle. But the biggest regret is that I wish I had gone up to LC and confirmed that she was okay to be in the bottom two, because that really caused a lot of tension. Not just between LC and me, but several people in the house. It was really uncomfortable. And before that, I hadn’t been in a position where I was the bad guy.
Q: I’ve seen people on Twitter calling you manipulative. How does it feel to have these feedbacks?
Favre Mallion: It’s terrible, because that’s not what happened. But I feel like no matter what I’ve done, if people want to think you’re the bad guy (or) that you’re their least favorite player in the game, then you are. I don’t take it personally, because I know what happened. I hope now my roommates know what happened.

Q: Did anything about this experience surprise you?
Favre Mallion: You play a game 24 hours a day. The game never stops because you are constantly trying to find out (who) people and conceal your identity. It’s a very stressful situation, but it was so much fun. And we were all so different, but we’re all friends. And that’s the craziest part. I did not expect to leave with such good friends. We text, we call, we chat in groups. We are all still very close. So that’s cool. Even though you see us fighting and stuff around the house, we’re actually all friends in real life.
