Sam King (this one), considers himself to be an all of the above.
Sam King was drafted for the military in 1941 following a short stint as a tattoo artist, (known famously for popularizing the "I heart Mom" tattoo. During his deployment in Northern Africa, Sam King was captured by German forces near the city of Sidi Barrani and through his trials in a POW camp found God. He decided to devote his life to becoming a baptist minister if he made it out of the POW camp. One day later, Sam King escaped from camp with the help of a camel named Zanzibar. However, the unfortunate man was now trapped in a worse prison, the Sahara Desert.. After 5 days stumbling around in the desert, Sam came across a small band of nomadic tribesman on their way to an oasis. At this point, Sam knew he'd have to rely on the acting skills he practiced in high school to convince them that he was Lawrence of Arabia. The nomadic tribespeople were not convinced, but they decided to take him along anyway after a proper begging. Now amongst civilization, Sam found his way back to the Allied forces and was sent home to recuperate. After receiving a Medal of Honor, Sam founded a church in Los Angeles, CA where he served as minister for fourteen years. After an unfortunate accident in the rector, Sam left the church to find himself. These travels led him to New Zealand, where he found solace in teaching a game that he learned while in the military from a man named Chuck Taylor. Sam King would go on to form the first basketball team in New Zealand, the New Zealand Kiwis. As head coach and star point guard, Sam King set records that have to this day only been broken by current phenom and hair dresser Aslaikuri Omattairu. After retiring from basketball with an undefeated record, Sam devoted himself to the study of media and marketing, where he became famous for creating the pioneering reality TV show, "Survivor". He appears only once in the show, as a wombat.
These days, Sam is an associate professor of home economics at Columbia University. He has a wife, Victoria with whom he has raised thirteen children. In his free time, he likes to write, cook, play solitaire and appear in adult films.
