Sam is currently completing his Doctorate of Philosophy and has had 16 academic works published. He’s been invited to universities around the world to lecture and has been impressing professional industry leaders at each destination.
Anita, Sales Rep: Recently celebrating her 50th birthday, Anita is a sales rep and mum of four who is determined to prove to the younger generation she can keep up with anything they throw at her. A Survivor Superfan, getting a place among the castaways was on Anita’s bucket list. Now she’s out to make her family and friends proud and to show them that anything’s possible if you put your mind to it.
Steve K, Take Away Delivery Rider: One of the biggest characters to hit the island, Steve lives by the motto, ‘comfort is a wonderful place to be in, but you never grow there.’ He lives a diverse life and has had a varied career as a sustainability consultant but has since taken a break from his career and is now working as a takeaway delivery rider because he enjoys the look on people’s faces when their food is delivered.
