"The 21-year-old is next to Eilish."

That would give us a unique solution.

I also hope either multiple solutions would be given as correct answers, or, couple of more hints would be added so that it becomes a one-solution problem.

If there are more solutions they should be added to the ons MIF posted. Otherwise,someone might think that his solution is incorrect.

But does it matter if there is more than one solution?  In life that can happen.  I think it is the thinking that matters.

Yes,Einstein puzzles should have only one solution,but I guess MIF missed the others or just didn't check.

Thanks, Bob. Amazed at your three solutions. I did not have your solution 1 and 2. I just had your solution 3 but I thought in solution 3, the upper right 4 cells can be reversed, that is, Amy + Eastenders can be the 5th and Eilish + Neighbors to the 4th. Then there would be 4 solutions. As a novice, I thought so-called Einstein Puzzles are supposed to have only "one" solution like Sudoku. It seems I was wrong, then.

hi dgkim8

I see what you mean.  I think I've got three solutions all satisfying the constraints.

Below I've shown them, with the fixed elements in black and the bits that I think may be changed in red.

hi dgkim8

Welcome to the forum!

Haven't tried that puzzle so I'll have a go now and then post again.

I am not able to fix between Eilish and Amy who is the 4th and who is the 5th in the queue.
I think both works, in other words, there may be two answers.
Can somebody enlighten me how I can fix Amy as the 4th person in the queue as the Solution says?
Thanks.
