Samuel Hinton - Bio

    Excerpts from Sam's official bio page (7/31/18):

     

    "Proving that brawn is not the only way onto the Champions tribe, Sam’s outstanding intellectual accomplishments will have him ahead of the game.  

    A boy genius, Sam is a top astrophysicist and a robotics and software engineer who knows 14 programming languages. He’s also an astronomer and has won the Bok Prize, the most prestigious award for masters students who have impressed the Astronomical Society of Australia. 

    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.  

    “Naïve statistics say it’s unlikely that I will win but I’m going to try! Stranger things have happened before and it would be pretty cool for a smart nerdy kid to take out the prize.” 

    Hoping to make himself useful at camp by making shelters and fire, Sam is planning to be an integral part of his tribe not by winning challenges but by supporting his friends and being himself saying, “It’ll probably be a mistake but I want to be me. I’ve been working out but I don’t imagine I’ll get to the point where I’ll be a challenge beast like other players will. 

    If he makes it to the end, Sam isn’t going to forget his roots.  “I’ve been a student my entire life, always scraping by. If I win, the title will be enough but I would use the prize money to buy myself a car so I can actually get around. Plus help some of my mates and my family.”"
