Profile

How would you describe yourself? I am a NZ born Samoan who loves his stunning Maori Queen and six children. I love loving people and enjoy serving them, especially young people from all walks of life. I am an undercover artist who loves to paint, sing, and act. I love contact sport, so I am always keen to smash and crash into people whether it be legal or not.

Why are you doing Survivor? I have always been a fan of the show from the very first series and always wondered how I would go in it! Also – the struggle is real for me and my family, so the possibility of winning the prize money would be amazing too!

What did you do to prepare? I started training with my dear friend Vicky who helped me prepare, but my diet was pretty rubbish – I kept loading up with junk food. I watched YouTube clips on how to open coconuts, how to start a fire, and build a shelter.

What are your pet peeves? Arrogance and liars I struggle with big time. People who talk a lot and can’t back.

What’s your strategy? I don’t have a strategy to be honest – other than to just be who I am. A person who connects well with people and create a culture of kotahitanga and whakawhanaungatanga where people feel safe and included. The goal is to just be me – and hopefully show that good guys can win Survivor.
