Achievements

Proposed to his girlfriend, Emily, before running the Wipeout Zone

On the course, Bill was on the edge on every round. He narrowly made it past the qualifier with the slowest time at over 8 minutes. He placed 6th on the Scareousel when Perry Carter allowed him to go after him as the final spot was up for grabs. Then he was the last competitor to make the cut on the Super Tramp.

In the Wipeout Zone, he managed to propose to his girlfriend Emily, who tearfully accepted. He timed out attempting to beat Matt Corrigan's time in the Wipeout Zone. Though he didn't win Wipeout, his journey proved to be a massive victory for him as he later went on to marry his current wife from making it to the Wipeout Zone.

Trivia[]

  • Bill is the only competitor on Wipeout to finish last in every round.
  • Per a Reddit comment, Bill initially placed 13th and did not clear the Qualifier. But a contestant who did make the top 12 withdrew due to hypothermia and so he was able to continue assuming the 12th place position.
