Gabriel Cannon On Claim To Fame Season 2

Hosted by Kevin and Franklin Jonas, Claim To Fame Season 2 began with an opening ceremony where each cast told two truths and a lie about their famous relative.

The first challenge was a talent show. Travis won the challenge, thus being safe at the Guess-Off. Hugo and JR finished last place, with Hugo being selected as the season’s first Guesser.

During the Guess-Off, Hugo targeted Carly and correctly guessed that her famous relative connection was none other than Forest Gump actor Tom Hanks.

As Carly bid a tearful goodbye to the show, she made sure to let Hugo know that she was upset he had targeted her. “I helped you, Hugo… I gave you clues, and if any of them are right, I swear I hope you go home because of that,” Carly said.

In his interview with Rapzilla in 2017, Gabriel revealed that he idolized his brother Nick as a child and a teenager. He said that he even tried talking like Nick at one point.

Besides Gabriel and Nick, there are 3 more brothers in the Cannon family, namely Reuben, Javen, and Caleb.
