YMMV / Whodunnit?

  • Harsher in Hindsight: After Dana is "Scared" for the second time, she's convinced that she's going to die that night and mentions that she wishes that the killer would simply "put her to sleep" and kill her painlessly. While she doesn't die that night, she gets her wish after she's "Scared" for the third time, two episodes later, and is killed after being chloroformed.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Dontae claimed that the first victim drowned "for good measure." Guess who jumps into a pool after being set on fire?
    • Later while Stating her case for Dontae's murder Adrianna thought that the medallion he was wearing exploded. She ended up being killed in an exploding golf cart, herself.
    • Ronnie's infamous trained monkey theory became even more funny the following week, when it turned out that a monkey played a role in his own death. When he was in the library, he was being spied on via a camera drilled into the "See No Evil" monkey statue.
    • The killer stated in episode 3 that she should kill Lindsey for her Annoying Laugh. in the final episode, Lindsey gets shot in the throat
  • Narrowed It Down to the Guy I Recognize: Cris, the killer for Season 1, was named as Miss Nevada 2010. Subverted with Sheri, a former NFL cheerleader, who was the first victim and was brought on strictly for that purpose.
  • Shocking Elimination:
    • Many casual fans suspected Ulysses to be the killer, but they were proven wrong in episode 4...
    • Episode 5 follows it up at its conclusion, when the Killer kills not one, but TWO Scared contestants.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The show is basically Narm Charm incarnate. The "Contestants" are laughably bad actors, the various Special Effects Failure's and stunt doubles are amazingly obvious...and it just makes you wanna see more.
  • Special Effect Failure: On occasion. For instance, the "tranq'ed mountain lion" that the players investigated was actually a stuffed one.
    • Actually, according to the official website, it was an animatronic lion. They needed to emulate the lion breathing because it was supposed to be asleep.
  • What an Idiot!: Ronnie's explanation for Geno's death. It's pretty hard to imagine how he was able to state his theory with a straight face.
