Tim Down

Tim Down was a contestant and octochamp in Series 74 who made his début in Series 73. 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 stepping aside for the series finals and 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 dramatically defeated by Ann Dibben, who solved the crucial conundrum MAGICPORT after 28.75 seconds to win by just one point. Ironically, his quarter-final defeat saw him achieve his highest score on the show.
