SAM GASKIN, 31
If you are looking for that fun, outgoing guy, look no further, there’s Sam Gaskin. Sam is a New Zealander with Maori, Welsh and African heritage, currently residing in Australia.
Sam’s zest for life comes from overcoming school bullies as a teenager. As an overweight kid, who weighed 100kg at age 14, Sam battled bulimia in his late teens and still carries some of those emotional scars today. “I have the fat gene”, he says; his mother and aunties have had gastric bypass surgeries to help them lose the weight.
As a doting father of two young children, he sees himself as a role model to young people. Being a dance teacher, you would think Sam has his exercise regime down. With his love for food and not so disciplined lifestyle, he calls his state of exercise, inconsistent.
