'I couldn't not mention my Nan too. So pure and full of wisdom. Lots of love - we hope you've all had a great day,' he added.

Last week, one of the show's Directing Staff revealed that the former NRL star was put through 'some horrendous' tasks on the selection course.

Mark 'Billy' Billingham told Nova's Fitzy and Wippa the ex-Rabbitohs player was a 'good contender' when the show was filmed in the NSW Blue Mountains.

Radio host Michael 'Wippa' Wipfli noted that Sam had previously shown impressive toughness on the field - particularly when he led the Rabbitohs to victory at the 2014 NRL Grand Final with a broken cheekbone.

'We know he's tough, but it's a mental strength of how much he wants it in that moment, is that right?' Wippa asked.

'It comes down to mental strength to be honest. I won't give too much away, but you've named a good one there,' Billy, a decorated former SAS solider, replied.

'He's a big boy, he's going to struggle with certain things and we put him through some horrendous tasks,' he added. 'I won't tell you how far he got, but he did well.'
