'Whodunnit?'s killer takes its fifth victim in Ulysses
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/15/2013
Whodunnit? "killed off" one of its nine remaining guests during Sunday night's broadcast of the new reality mystery competition's fourth episode.
Ulysses, a 30-year-old attorney from Mechanicsburg, PA, was the fifth guest in the mansion to be "killed" at the end of last night's episode for failing to solve the day's murder crime based upon the evidence supplied. The game-playing guests were investigating the "death" of Don, a 62-year-old ex-homicide detective from Santa Clarita, CA, who was attacked by a mountain lion in the mansion's kitchen.
After each participant attempted to solve the crime of Don's "death," each guest received an envelope with a card inside telling them whether they were "spared" or "scared" -- meaning they'd be safe from elimination due to their successful crime-solving skills or potentially get "killed" for failing to impress the murderer with their statements of how they believed the incident's events unfolded.
Besides Ulysses, fellow guest Kam, a 30-year-old homeland security attorney from New York, NY, got the only other "scared" card but ended up surviving.
Dana, a 39-year-old cardiac nurse from Asheville, NC, ended up impressing the "killer" -- who is actually one of the participants -- most with her statement of how the murder occurred after gathering and interpreting all the evidence.
For each "murder," the guests are allowed to choose one of the following locations to investigate: the scene of the crime, the victim's last known whereabouts and the body itself whether it be in the morgue or elsewhere. They can choose to share the information they discover with others or keep it to themselves.
However, this week, guests were also given the opportunity to examine the suspect, which happened to be the sleeping mountain lion.
Dana almost nailed the story of what actually happened to Don. Don was killed when he entered the kitchen to cook his steak one morning for breakfast. He turned on the grill, which was rigged to release cyanide. While inhaling the chemicals, Don stepped onto a floor mat that ultimately opened a trapdoor and unleashed the hungry mountain lion. But instead of devouring Don, after a couple brutal bites, the mountain lion preferred eating the raw steak instead.
The following day after Don's case was solved, Ulysses was shown joining his fellow guests on a horseback ride to the stables. However, Ulysses' horse lost control and he was eventually thrown off it.
In addition to Dana and Kam, the remaining guests who are still playing the mystery game in the hopes of winning the $250,000 reward are Cris, a 27-year-old ex-beauty queen from Costa Mesa, CA; Geno, a 33-year-old bar trivia host from Chicago, IL; Melina, a 29-year-old flight attendant from Chicago, IL; Ronnie, a 42-year-old bounty hunter from Kenilworth, NJ; Sasha, a 28-year-old journalist from Washington, DC; and Lindsey, a 27-year-old engineer from Boston, MA.
