Full Name: Matai'a Salatielu Tiatia

Age: 40

Nationality: Samoan

Hometown: Christchurch  

Occupation: Youth Worker

Sala works with troubled youth, who have fallen through the cracks of the schooling system. 

He looks rough and ready, with his strong physique and dreadlocks, but he has a heart of gold. 

Sala is adaptable, likeable, and a born leader. 

He could easily be taken advantage of in this game though, his willingness to trust people could be his undoing.
