Fame is the first episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
A video shows clips of a few of Ben's aliens, such as Wildmutt, Swampfire, Brainstorm, Echo Echo, Jetray, Cannonbolt, Humungousaur, Rath, Big Chill, Chromastone, Goop, and Spidermonkey. The video finally shows the world about Ben's secret identity, with Kevin telling him that he's so busted.
With Ben's identity revealed, the paparazzi makes it hard for him to get out of his house, and TV reporter Will Harangue is criticizing him. After they exit from Ben's house, Ben transforms into Humungousaur and scares the reporters away. Humungousaur transforms back into Ben and Kevin tells Ben that he should have gone Ultimate, but Ben didn't want to scare himself. Ben and Julie watch the Will Harangue Nation, hosted by Will Harangue, who hates Ben. They go for a ride in Ben's car. Ben thinks that maybe he can do more good in public than in private. Kevin and Gwen drive up next to them and Kevin reveals that he tracked down the person who leaked Ben's identity. Ben decides to go and get revenge. Gwen thinks that it is a stupid idea. They arrive at the mastermind's house and discover that the so-called "mastermind" is a 10-year-old boy named Jimmy Jones.
Kevin gets mad at Jimmy for ruining Ben's life, but Ben and Gwen forgive him. Jimmy tells Ben that he was looking at pictures of aliens around the world and noticed that most of them came from Bellwood. He found that some of them were wearing the Omnitrix symbol and Jimmy was able to piece together Ben's identity from a picture of him wearing the Omnitrix. Jimmy wanted to just let the world know how cool Ben was, hoping he would like the fame and money. Gwen sees a picture of a red creature and Jimmy shows a video of it attacking two guards. Jimmy tells the team that all of the sightings are in Florida. This sounds like trouble for Ben and company, so they use Kevin's new jet (standard plumber issue) to travel to Florida. But then, after an incident involving Kevin and the Air force, Ben transforms into Jetray in order to save an air force pilot, but after Jetray transforms back into Ben, he ends up in jail. He is able to be let out when Gwen and Kevin show the government their Plumber Badges. They tell the team that the creature Jimmy showed them arises from the ocean to collect pieces from NASA's most powerful rocket ship. Ben, Gwen, and Kevin all decide to stop this creature. However, as they fight him, the creature seems too strong for both Gwen and Kevin and as for Ben, the Ultimatrix won't let him transform and starts acting weird.
Ben finally is able to transform after scanning the creature's DNA and transforms into Chromastone, his first re-appearance after his death and fights the creature, but it proves too strong for Chromastone as well and Chromastone transforms back into Ben. the creature gets away and when Ben wakes up, the general tells Ben that the creature got away with the nuclear bomb, with the engine for the rocket. Gwen gets the team underwater and finds the creature in a cave fixing his ship, wanting to go home. But the nuclear bomb will destroy all of central Florida, something the creature doesn't feel concerned about. To stop the team from keeping him from leaving, he throws a live cable at Gwen and Kevin, trapping them while Gwen is shielding them. Ben transforms into Spidermonkey to fight, but the creature is too superior for all of Ben's forms. To take drastic measures, Spidermonkey transforms into Ultimate Spidermonkey and easily defeats the creature, then traps it with Ultimate Spidermonkey's webbing. After Ultimate Spidermonkey transforms back into Ben, his eyes glow pink for a second and then the creature tells his name to be Bivalvan. He tells Ben that he, along with four others, were captured by a man called Aggregor and comes from the Andromeda Galaxy. He was able to escape him, but got separated and got stuck on Earth. So to help, Ben calls the Plumbers to help Bivalvan get home and stop the nuclear bomb from exploding.
The next day, when Ben goes to school, he's scared that his classmates will hate him too. But decides to go in after a kiss on the cheek from Julie, as encouragement. When Ben comes in, his classmates actually applaud him for his help, including his old bullies, Cash and J.T..
Later, Bivalvan is expecting the Plumbers, but instead Aggregor shows up and recaptures Bivalvan before torturing him. Bivalvan is also heard screaming off-screen.
