A joke create by with the idea that TA Sam was like under-seasoned steak, nice to look at but not flavorful or good at all. This idea was sparked from the thought that TA Sam was nice to look at but had no personality and was very dry. However according to the students of Primate Biology TA Sam was a very entertaining person, nice, as down to earth. According to TA Sam he had never even spoken to Aleika before so it is of popular belief that this nickname came from spite of his looks. KeeLeigh Jenkins of the Primate Biology class started the #phytingthehaters movement in response to this nickname.
