After a successful first season, Claim to Fame returned for a Season 2 on 26 June 2023. Like the previous season, Season 2 starts with 12 contestants, each of whom is related to a celebrity. Morgan Monay Harvey or simply Monay is one of them. So, in the rest of the writing, let us tell you who she is and who her famous relative is.
Morgan Monay Harvey On Claim To Fame
In each episode of Claim To Fame, one contestant is eliminated and only then their identity is revealed. Meanwhile, the last person standing takes home a hefty prize of $100,000.
Season 2 got off to an exciting start as Morgan Monay Harvey and the other contestants made their way to the Claim to Fame mansion. They had their first introduction to the clue wall filled with items such as a green bench, a bee, a mask, a rhino, and an astronaut.
The first challenge was a talent show and Travis was the winner of the challenge and was therefore protected at the Guess-Off and given an extra clue. Hugo and JR came in last place, and Hugo was elected the season’s first Guesser. At the Guess-Off, Hugo chose to target Carly and correctly guessed that she is Tom Hanks’s niece, Carly Reeves. Alicia Key’s brother Cole Cook, Morgan, and the remaining other nepo-babies got saved from elimination in the season premiere.
Is Steve Harvey Morgan Monay Harvey Famous Relative?
When introducing herself on Claim To Fame, Morgan Monay Harvey claimed her celebrity relative is her father and that he is best known for being an athlete. She also hinted that her famed father has an Emmy Award. And some of the contestants did guess right that she is none other than Steve Harvey’s daughter, mostly because of her striking likeness to the Little Big Shots star.
Morgan also had gushed that the last thing her celebrity relative had told her was to “Bring home the money”.
In the “Two Truths and a Lie” segment, Morgan stated that lying is her strategy, and she’s lying about everything anyone could think of. When Hugo was up for being the guesser, Carly shared with him and Travis that she thought Morgan looked like Steve Harvey and that he could be her dad. Carly said he’s been on television forever and probably has won an Emmy. In addition, Carly pointed to the “Family is everything” sign on the Clue Wall, which she thought might represent Steve’s Family Feud.
But, to those of you who don’t know, Morgan is not Steve’s biological daughter. In fact, she is one of the three children (the others are Lori and Jason) Steve adopted after marrying their mother Marjorie Elaine Harvey in 2007.
