15 Minutes of Fame People Scavenger Hunt


"In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes." ~ Andy Warhol

people scavenger hunt

Will 15 minutes of fame really be experienced by everyone at some time in their life? The idea is becoming more and more plausible with the popularity of reality TV.

Your goal for this scavenger hunt is to get the autographs of people who have experienced their "15 minutes of fame."

Have fun getting to know the "celebrities" of your community. You never know who you might meet and how amazing their stories might be.

Maybe you're even one of those famous unknowns who will one day be asked for YOUR autograph.

People Scavenger Hunt Instructions

15 minutes of fame
  • Divide into two teams (or more if you have a huge group.)

  • Find a location where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic.

  • Go out, meet, mingle and try to get as many autographs as you can.

NOTE:  You might want to have the teams write a bit of information beside each autograph (eg. what newspaper was the person's picture in and for what reason, in what play did the person have the lead role and at what location.)

You may even want to send one member of the opposite team along with each team to verify these "15 minutes of fame" finds.


This hunt will definitely be a challenge. Not everyone likes to be interviewed, but there's still a lot of friendly people out there who will be more then willing to give you their time. Just think ... you'll get to meet new people and learn a little something about those who share your community.

Happy hunting!

  • autograph scavenger hunt

    Winner is the team who gets the most legitimate autographs or the team who gets the autographs in the quickest amount of time. Since this will be quite the challenge, I would probably choose to set a time limit on this one.

    Variation: If you have access to video cameras you could get all of these interviews on camera instead.

    You could also give bonus points for "famous folks" you come across that may not be mentioned on the list.

    Please note: For obvious reasons, this would not be a good game for children unless playing on adult supervised teams.
