Sam Webb is a contestant from Australian Survivor (2016).

Sam came into the game wanting to play with loyalty and friendship. This mindset carried him deep into the merge before he attempted to blindside closest friend Lee Carseldine in favor of a new all-Saanapu alliance. His downfall began when Lee won immunity and Sam's alliance's next target, El Rowland, survived the vote. Sam was then targeted and subsequently voted out at the next Tribal Council.

Sam is the CEO of the mental health and suicide prevention organisation LIVIN, which he cofounded in 2013 after one of his close friends took his own life.

It has become the basis of the way Sam lives his life, being grateful for everything. "It changed my entire life purpose and mission. I now use tragedy to inspire people in a positive way. Overall, my decisions in life are influenced by 'does it make me happier?', so everything I do is for the better. I don't waste time doing things that don't move me. I'm all in."

Previously, Sam worked in sales and as a private client advisor assistant. He says Australian Survivor is the ultimate self-challenge.

"Stepping out of my comfort zone motivates me. I love anything where I could be vulnerable. This will grow me as a person and help others find hope. Although this is so far out of my comfort zone, that I have been second thinking it! I can't wait."

Coming up against Survivor super fans is something Sam is not quite ready for as he has not watched an entire episode, but is hoping his lack of knowledge of the game will be an advantage for him.

Following Australian Survivor, Sam plans to go on a 500 kilometre bike ride through the Italian Alps.[2]

^1 In "Episode 5", Vavau and Saanapu were subjected to a joint and mock Tribal Council where the players they voted out (Nick and Conner respectively) were merely switched to the other tribe. The person voted off Saanapu, Conner, was given the privilege to take an original tribemate with him. He chose Sam to join him on Vavau.
^2 In "Episode 16", Nick used a Hidden Immunity Idol, negating Sam's vote against him.
^3 In "Episode 23", Lee used a Vote Stopper advantage on Sam, preventing him from voting. Also, the vote ended with a 2-2 tie between Sam and Matt, forcing a revote. El and Kristie changed their votes to Sam on the revote, eliminating him from the game.
