Sam Thorne, the full name being Samuel Lucas Joseph Thorne, otherwise known as Strippin, is a YouTuber in the Yogscast.
He is currently dating and living with Brooke Lawson.
Sam joined the Yogscast after thrashing Simon and Lewis at a poker game. He is an ex-model, but despite his rugged good looks, Sam prides himself on being a no nonsense gamer with a heart of gold.
Sam first appeared in videos in Duncan's first Tekkit series along side Benjizm as a member of the infamous duo Rail Bros Inc. Sam also assisted Rythian in his HoN hero spotlight videos before the introduction of Zoey.
He was also featured in some of Martyn's videos, including his 12w38a snapshot video, where he tried to fight the witch and repeatedly fell into holes built for lighting purposes and on Martyn's Halo 4 livestream (which was hijacked by Simon and Lewis when the two left the room to get some food).
