Tamara Pickering is one of the first contestants in the Wipeout series who only appeared in early promos and the pilot episode of the series. Perhaps her catchphrase, "$50,000, I AM NOT GIVING IT TO CHARITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", have endeared to Wipeout fans everywhere. She was never seen again after the qualifier when she was stuck in the mud in the Sucker Punch. She is the only contestant from season 1 to appear in one of the first Season 2 promo of the show in the first segment, including her catchphrase, which was the only dialouge to be heard, although the segment was shown in a sephra color before showing nothing else than new contestants in Season 2 with "a whole lot of wow, pow, and ow".
