J.B. Smoove regularly watched “Claim to Fame” as it aired. He often added commentary and discussed the episodes with his daughter, Jerrica Brooks. In typical father fashion, he constantly teased her about things that happened on the show. In particular, he found the “Claim to Fame” cast’s guesses about Chris Osmond hilarious. Immediately, he identified Chris as Donny Osmond’s son and found the series of wrong guesses quite funny, which included Elton John and Billy Idol.
Smoove also found a lot of humor in the cast’s wrong guesses about Brooks’ celebrity relative. Steve Harvey was a popular guess for her father’s identity. Brooks told Entertainment Weekly that she responded to her father’s bewilderment with the guess, “Yeah, that’s my new dad.” Brooks said it became a running joke between them. Harvey and Brooks have met before, but he’s not some secret long-lost relative. According to her, Harvey and her father have a “nice relationship.” Harvey has seven kids, but Brooks is the only child of Smoove.
