37, Endurance Athlete, Victoria

Mark was last seen on Australian Survivor Season 2, where he formed a power couple with fellow castaway Sam. The two fell in love, were married in 2019 and have a son together.

Sam’s mantra is “composure and calm, this is a marathon not a sprint”, and says she doesn’t have a game play as she wants to adapt to the people she is playing with.

Why do you think you were chosen to be on Survivor?

My husband and I met on Australian Survivor and made the cardinal sin of getting swept up in our connection at the detriment of playing the game. Our whole tribe turned against us and we were swiftly voted out.

What are you most looking forward to?

I’ve been dreaming about being on that mat for the very first challenge with JLP. The heart is pumping, and you know you are about to play a bloody tough but epic game.
