William "Doc" Slettevold from "Diamond Divers" stars in the Spike TV reality docu-series.

Doc Slettevold is not only the oldest member of the Washington crew, but the wildest. Few things eclipse his love of adventure, and his "anything goes" attitude makes any journey an interesting one.

Born in Bremerton, Washington, Doc grew up in Seattle, Washington. He was raised in a family of construction workers and learned the ins and outs of building houses early on. His family also owned a boat, which

prompted Doc to become an adept seaman, even spending some time as a skipper on a landing craft in the service. Though most of his career was spent in construction, he has also tried his hand in sales and trading; trading cars, boats and hot rods.

Doc first met Captain John years ago at a local fisherman's bar. Though their first meeting almost ended in fisticuffs, they soon became fast friends and have been ever since. Now retired, Doc still helps Captain John here and there when he needs an extra pair of hands. On this South African adventure, he will serve as the ship's cook, medic and deckhand. Doc is more interested in the adventure and facing down sharks then he is in getting rich, but if he were to hit it big, he would buy himself a resort in the Philippines.

After retiring, Doc bought an apple orchard in eastern Washington, where he spends much of his time. The rest of his time is split between Quartzsite, Arizona, and the Philippines. He enjoys traveling and working on hot rods and boats.
