Sam a/k/a “Ladies’ Man”

Sam is the self-proclaimed ladies’ man on the Genius' team. The other biological sciences and chemistry major on the team, Sam upped his genius level by adding a major in economics with finance application.

This genius/ladies’ man comes with a big heart. His main motivation to winning on the show is to open a college fund for his best friend’s newborn son. He hopes to one day become a doctor and open a free geriatric clinic– what a guy!

Since the show comes from the producers of “The Da Vinci Code,” adapted from the book by Dan Brown, perhaps Sam will be able to pull knowledge from his favorite book, Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons. Also, since contestants will be tested on their wits and strength, we may see Sam’s love of mountain biking and scuba diving put to good use.
