Daphne & Velma featured several meta-references to the cast and crew. In addition to Kristina Davies being one of the students on the Bloom Bracket, Carol reveals she is actually 26 in the film. This is a reference to her actress, Vanessa Marano, who is 26 in real-life but is often said to look significantly younger. Additionally, one of the major clues in the film is that one of the missing students, Olivia, always wears a blue ribbon in her hair. This is a reference to the production company, Blue Ribbon Entertainment.
