Sam Daley was a contestant in Survivor: Kermadec Falls.


He was a part-time mechanic from South London. He had to give it up to be on the show though. He is a strong swimmer and runner but he doesn't trust easily, and is secretive and shy.

Survivor: Kermadec Falls

In the beginning of the competition, Sam was very shy and not heard from. Slowly, he became friends with Ilena and Grey of Niiv.

When the tribe switch came, Sam was still in a good position with his tribe. He didn't like Mark Owen very much...

That Mark guy was ok. He didn't say much and what he did say was kinda annoying. He kept bragging about his band…


...but it didn't matter because Mark was the first sim to be eliminated from the post-switch Niiv.

Later, Sam also decided that Vanessa would be the next to go between her, Noctourne and Tim. And by that next tribal, Vanessa lost the fire-making tie breaker and Sam's alliance prevailed.

When the tribes merged on Day 19, Sam's alliance was still strong. They were able to rejoin with Flora and Blake, to ex-Niiv's. And after Owen won the first individual immunity challenge, Sam planned to oust his partner Sarah. He told Grey his plan and the word spread.

Well, I have to say I'm really quite satisfied. That didn't take long. Word that Sarah is next spread through this tribe like a brushfire. The best feeling about it is that is my suggestion, were going through with something that I want! I'm slowly moving on up!


But Sam's plan had a hole. A hole named Blake Rockwell. Sarah was still fake flirting with him. She acted being upset that she was going home next and gave him one "last kiss". Blake revealed in a private confessional that he didn't want another Esme incident. He switched his vote to Sienna at tribal council and Sam was eliminated 5-4-1.
