Default strange hint

I came across this strange hint on a 4x5 challenge today.

HINT:This places jalapeno and Wilbur both at specifically different distances from Zachary in relation to start times. This means jalapeno cannot be equal to Wilbur. Mark the highlighted cell as FALSE.

I'm not sure what you find strange.
If jalapeno is 15 minutes behind Zachary and Wilbur is 30 minutes behind Zachary (different distance in relation to start time with Zachary), then jalapeno cannot be on the same row as Wilbur (jalapeno and Wilbur do not go together) so mark Wilbur/jalapeno as False..

While I don't know what the other hints were, I'll just make up some numbers..
Say Wilbur is 1 step from Zachary
And Jalapeno is 2 steps from Zachary
Wilbur can't be Jalapeno because that would contradict the 1 step/2 step distances.
Such as if Wilbur WAS Jalapeno, how would he be BOTH one (himself) AND two (jalapeno) steps from Zachary?
