MARK WALES – Special Ops Veteran, Reality TV Star, Actor, CEO, Entrepreneur, Author & Sole Survivor Winner of Survivor Australia Blood V Water 2022

Mark’s 16-year career with the Australian Military and six-year career with Australian Special forces has taken him to the most remote of places overseas. As a Troop Commander in charge of 30 elite soldiers, Mark’s role was to lead combat missions deep behind enemy lines. At the end of his career, he had completed 10 tours of duty to Afghanistan, Iraq, East Timor, Lebanon and the Solomon Islands. Mark’s successful recovery and growth led him to embark on a high-profile career in business. He studied with the Wharton School of Business – before joining the elite consulting firm McKinsey & Company in New York City. Mark was listed in Wharton’s prestigious 40 under 40 awards for business excellence.

In 2017, Mark was a popular contestant in Australian Survivor where he met his now wife Samantha Gash. In 2020, they featured together in the first season of Bear Gryll’s 10-part Amazon Prime series, The World’s Toughest Race– a 700km extreme adventure race in Fiji over 11 days. In 2022, Mark took out the top prize as Sole Survivor in the Australian series of Survivor – Blood V Water where he competed with his wife Samantha. The jury voted a clean sweep of 10/10 votes for Mark which says a lot about Mark’s character, social game, challenges and loyalty to his alliance

He is the founder of a tough-luxury ecommerce brand called Kill Kapture, and now works as a corporate speaker training thousands of clients each year in Australia and the U.S.A. Mark is also an author and has released his memoir ‘Survivor’ in 2021. Mark is also currently working on the set of Mad Max: Furiosa having been cast into an acting role which has been his life-long dream. Mark’s wife is Samantha Gash, an elite endurance athlete, and they have a 4 year-old son called Harry.
