The Hits Sam Wallace Shares The Heartwarming Reason He's 'Happy To Be The Villain' On CTI


Sam Wallace has been playing a hard game so far on Celebrity Treasure Island – and well, he’s ended up coming off as a little bit of a villain. But Sam the reason he is fighting so hard for the $100,000 of buried treasure is because of a special personal connection he has with his charity of choice, the Starship Foundation.

Sam explained that from a young age Beau has struggled with health issues and that Starship Children's Hospital has been vital for helping him through them. Beau then underwent a second heart operation, but because of the complications with his first operation, he was left with "black spots" in his brain and a stiff leg that he often has to wear a brace on. Now age six, Beau – who has overcome so much in his life so far - competed in his very first cross-country and "smiled the whole way around". Sam went on to explain that while he came in last, "the whole school was cheering him on".
