Chef White (originally Mrs. White) is an original suspect in Cluedo Board Game but removed in Cluedo 2016, before being reimplemented in Cluedo 2023.

Start[]

Mrs. White starts between Ballroom and Kitchen. She rolls third, preceded by Colonel Mustard, followed by Reverend Green.

Description[]

An up and coming chef full of youthful ambition and fresh ideas, Chef White has been running her restaurant for years, her unique dishes earning her positive reviews from customers and critics alike. Her motto relies on talent, persistence... and the money she's been stealing from her own restaurant, something Boddy Black has known all along. Now she has two choices: thanklessly run Black's hotel restaurant, or face charges.

In the Board Game[]

Cluedo Original: Introduced as Nurse White.

1949 US/UK: Renamed to Mrs. White.

1963 US: Cartoon caricature of a cheerfully plump middle-aged cook with red hair, holding a rolling pin in her hands.

1972 US: Portrayed in photograph as a skittish domestic servant shown to be rather timid and having a lot to hide.

1986 US: Mrs. White by now had gone from a pudgy old cook to nasty looking young maid. Here, she has a shoulder-length cut of a blonde bob and retains a scowl on her face.

UK Super Challenge: Artistically updated version of the original Mrs. White; now given a body.

Master Detective: Mrs. Blanche White has aged drastically again, being a long serving housekeeper of Boddy Manor over the course of years. She claims to have seen many wars come and go and gets an eye squint from spying in keyholes.

1992 US: Mrs. White has settled to a middle-aged look where her expression shows a possible sarcastic grudge against her employer. On the box, she is working a noose of a Rope in her hands, made from the curtain pull.

1996 US: Mrs. White takes on a grandmotherly appearance as she is now older than ever.

1996 UK: The rather manly looking Mrs. White is portrayed looking as demented as the rest of the group, wearing a white cooking ensemble and sporting a grey bob of hair. While claiming to have loved her employer, she is reported to be no longer happy in her work.

2000 UK/Super Cluedo/Passport to Murder: Mrs. White in these editions looks aged, but not quite elderly. She is portrayed as a stiff matronly housekeeper, who wrinkles her nose in her own displeasure such as having to ride in a third-class coach with rowdy passengers.

2002 US: A more cubist rendition than before; Blanche White is shown with short hair and a sinister expression. She is the long time nanny and cook to Mr. Boddy/Dr. Black.

Discover the Secrets: Mrs. White had been completely reinvented as Diane White, an aspiring former child actress waiting for her day of recognition.

The Classic Mystery Game: "White" is now an alias for the youthful Alexis Villenueve, in the game's first depiction as her being of African-descent. She is described as a top lawyer who will do anything for justice, including turning vigilante.

Cluedo 2016: Replaced by Dr. Orchid, a young biologist.

Cluedo Mobile: Different costumes are available in many themes if you purchase with real money. She is also categorized in "The Internationals" character although she is original.

Cluedo 2023: Reimplemented as Chef White, and replaced Dr. Orchid. She is the Irish owner and head chef of Restaurant Blanc, and is portrayed as a younger woman sporting white dyed hair, tattoos, and an outfit similar to Gordon Ramsey. In the 2023 online round of Cluedo, Chef White is one of Boddy Black's blackmail victims and one of the seven owners of his planned hotel. In this version, Chef White's alleged motive for killing Boddy Black is the victim's threats to expose her Ponzi scheme, a crime she had committed to steal money from her own restaurant. In exchange for not being reported to the authorities, Boddy Black ordered Chef White to permanently shut down Restaurant Blanc and work as the chef of his hotel's restaurant. But in the finale, Chef White is not only identified as the killer of Boddy Black but his half-sister too, the illegitimate child of Boddy Black, Sr. and an Irish waitress. Chef White's real motive for killing her half-brother is to inherit all their father's money and enjoy the luxury she believes she deserves due to Black, Sr. abandoning her to keep his affair a secret from his legal wife.
