Puzzle

US Version

Host: "Get ready for the time of your lives on our spectacular stage! Pay attention as we have cameras placed on the corners of the stars. Their viewing angle is only as wide as the edges of each star point. Stay free of the center, and try not to end up being viewed by more than one camera, will you?

"Hey! Haven't you been listening! You're on more than one camera!"

Who is the host telling off?

It might be easier to think about which camera's capturing who, rather than how many cameras each person appears on.

Make a note of who appears on each camera. On the right star:

Camera 10: G
Camera 9: A, I
Camera 8: C
Camera 7: D
Camera 6: F

How about the ones on the left?

On the left star:

Camera 1: H
Camera 2: D, E, F, G
Camera 3: B, C
Camera 4: A
Camera 5: No one

US Version

Now just take Hint 2 into consideration, and think it through a bit more.

Now just take Hint 2 into consideration and think it through a bit more.

Simply add up how many cameras each person has been caught on using the information from Hints 2 and 3.

A is on two cameras, B on one, C on two, D on two, E on one, F on two, G on two, H on one, and I on one.

So who shows up on more than one camera?
