Monday Mind Game

A mastermind organized a quiz competition in which six selected candidates were invite namely James Hunt, Ruxandra Bar, Sophia Connors, David Finch, Fred Odea and Brian Miller. A "special puzzle" was asked to all of them. The first one to answer it was promised for a multi-million dollar award.

The candidates were invited to a lavish celebration in which the winner would be announced. After the meal and the speeches, the mastermind stood up to announce the much awaited result. He started announcing:

"Ok now everybody!

"The winner of….."
"The Hardest Riddle Ever Event..."

And then he simply smiled. 

All the candidates understood who won. 

So, who won the competition?

Give up?

Drag your cursor between the asterisks for the answer


Fred Odea won.

Just look at the announcement lines. The first sentence in 'Ok now everybody!' If you take out just the first letter of every word, it will form 'ONE'. In the same manner the second sentence 'The winner of…..' will give form 'TWO' and the third sentence 'The Hardest Riddle Ever Event.' Will form THREE.

Thus the final sentence must form FOUR. There is only one candidate who can suffice with the first two letter and he is Fred Odea. The final sentence of the mastermind must be, 'Fred Odea: Ultimate Riddler!'
