Jace Lankow, the fake referee/streaker is as much of a douchebag as you would have assumed. I invite you to watch this interview from KVOA.com and challenge you to resist punching your computer screen.
To review: This was a “last hurrah” and somehow an alternative to getting a desk job. If he hadn’t done this, he would have regretted it. If he gets tossed out of school, his mom will kill him. (*crosses fingers*) He doesn’t have an application for Wipeout completed, but he has one in the works. Yes, he see this as his opportunity to get on Wipeout and the winnings will be used to pay off his legal bills…
See, if you win Wipeout, you win $50,000, and all you really need to do to win Wipeout is basically fill out your application. I think when you hit submit on ABC.com they immediately wire the cash into your account. Again, I’m not a legal expert like Jace, but I’m pretty sure that’s how it works.
This idiot could face a year and a half in jail, but we could never be so lucky. Personally, I think an example should be made of this kid. He didn’t cause the bench-clearing scuffle in the Arizona-UCLA game, but he certainly helped create more confusion moment that made it harder to control. What a jackass.
