Tim Down

Tim Down was a contestant in Series 73 and an octochamp in Series 74. He is also an Apterite.

He began his run in the last heat of Series 73 beating 4-time winner Jamie Collyer on the crucial conundrum SLIMENEMY to beat Collyer 85 – 68. He returned after Championship of Champions XIV. Despite declaring numerous words that were not listed in the selection, he breezed through the heats and finished with a points tally of 717. He returned in June 2016 as #6 seed for the quarter-finals. Here, he was narrowly defeated by Ann Dibben, who solved the crucial conundrum MAGICPORT after 28.75 seconds to win by just a single point. Ironically, his quarter-final defeat saw him achieve his highest score on the show.
