Roland Nichol was a contestant in the seventeenth season of Terror is Reality, but was removed from the show for unknown reasons but was erroneously still listed as a replacement in the events program guide.
Like all Terror is Reality contestants, he is a survivor of a zombie outbreak, specifically the Willamette incident, where he was forced to shoot three family members, including his zombified sister. He was interviewed about the experience by an unnamed newspaper.
- The PC game's files suggests that Ronald was originally supposed to be in the final version, but was replaced, along with Bobby Newland, by Anim White and Kris Bookmiller for unknown reasons.
