The 9th Annual WeHo Scavenger Hunt was hard to miss today as groups of mostly young men were seen racing around West Hollywood and neighboring areas and taking selfies, while on the hunt for something campy from a straight-up diabolically challenging list of photo ops and item objectives.
The day’s adventure, which ran from 1:30pm-5:30pm, are the efforts of WeHo Dodgeball, WeHo Adult Recreation (W*A*R), and Rainbow Rex.
“My partner Logan and I have done this for four years now out of the nine,” Daniel Fritz, a member of the Master Bakers team, told WEHO TIMES. “I think this year has been our best year. I think we did really well. There are some clues that are way in the valley that we ended up getting. We feel confident that we got a lot of the high number stuff as well the low number stuff. There were a few riddles that we didn’t figure out. The turnout was pretty good. At one point they had almost 30 teams. I think everyone’s creativity was great. There was a Stranger Things theme. Their stuff was great. It was definitely fun.”
The Ten Inch Mutant Ninja Bottoms were also happy with their hunt. All four agreed that the best part of the hunt was doing the death drop on RuPaul’s star on Hollywood Boulevard and they seemed mighty pleased that they were able to get people naked in a shower for seven points. “It was a blast,” said Alex Mazza. “We got a lot. We are happy we actually got the picture with a Tesla, which was one of the challenges. We’ll definitely do it again next year.”
All objectives were broken up into the following categories:
1) “Riddle Me This!” — Teams had to deduce locations from mind-bending riddles and get photographs of their team members at said locations!
2) “Gurrrrrrrrrrrrrl!” — Teams had to get photographs of themselves (and occasionally non-players) performing outrageous and silly poses and activities. Teams also had to get photographs with non-players sporting wacky or hard-to-find clothing or characteristics.
3) “Objective Collective!” — Teams had to locate and collect (not photograph) unique, possibly hard-to-find items.
4) “Easter Egg Grab Bag” — The objectives packet included two picture puzzles. The answer to each puzzle revealed a nearby location where representatives with Easter eggs that included vouchers worth varying amounts of bonus points.
