The best thing about Glee Club is it's not about labels. If you can sing and you can dance, you belong.

—Sam Evans, The New Rachel

Samuel "Sam" Evans is a major character on Glee. He is an alumnus of William McKinley High School. He makes his first appearance as a new sophomore in Audition, the first episode of Season Two, and soon joins the New Directions. After unsuccesful relationships with Quinn and Santana, he ultimately begins dating Mercedes. They break up after Sam moves out of state following Season Two, but after returning to Lima in Hold on to Sixteen, he begins working on trying to rekindle things with her. However, Mercedes ultimately decides against it, due to the guilt of having cheated on her new boyfriend Shane.

In Season Four, Sam starts dating Brittany, which leads to severe tension between him and Brittany's ex-girlfriend Santana. Brittany ultimately breaks up with him as she is about to leave high school. Around the same time, Sam befriends Blaine, who develops a temporary crush on him, and Tina, with whom he shares a single kiss in Trio.

After graduating in New Directions, Sam moves to New York to pursue a career in modelling. At the Big Apple he gets back together with Mercedes for a third time. However, even this relationship fails when Sam struggles to cope with Mercedes' celibacy vows. He moves back to Lima after a successful photo session in The Untitled Rachel Berry Project. As of Loser Like Me, he is now Coach Beiste's assistant football coach at WMHS. During the last season of the show, he helps Kurt and Rachel find new members for the glee club, he is also present at Brittany's, Santana's, Kurt's and Blaine's double wedding and he also becomes Rachel's boyfriend, though it's later seen that they have broken-up. In Dreams Come True, he becomes New Directions' new coach after Will is named Principal and the school becomes Arts-orientated. Five years later, it is revealed that he has a new girlfriend but is still texting Mercedes.

He is a regular recurring character during the second and third season before promoted to main character in Season Four and remaining in that position for the rest of the series. Sam is portrayed by actor and musician Chord Overstreet.



Sam appears to be a nice and self-possessed guy, and sometimes a bit of a dork, with a quirky awkwardness when he speaks, at first never being sure what to say. As the new kid, he tries to find his way within the social networks of his new school, and seems content to make friends. When Finn offers him the chance to join the Glee Club, Sam seems genuinely excited at the idea, and by how welcoming the people he met are. However, like all kids, Sam fears social alienation, embarrassment, and temporarily backed out of joining for fear of being bullied. But even at the risk of being alienated, Sam has shown signs of being very honorable, as he refused to back out of a duet with Kurt, even though Finn warns him that performing a duet with another boy might cause him to be bullied. Sam states that he gave his word to Kurt and that was too important to go back on.

Sam's Physique.

Despite being a nice guy, Sam is rather socially awkward and naive, and is generally oblivious to how much the girls find him attractive. He claims this is because of limited interaction with girls, due to previously attending an all-boys school. This appears to cause him to move a bit more quickly than most would in terms of interacting with girls, such as trying to kiss Quinn. He also appears to be very easygoing and likeable, as Santana declared him as the "new Glee favorite" in Furt. He is very determined to get what he wants, such as popularity or being Quinn Fabray's boyfriend, which has also been shown to have taken a toll on his self-confidence. Despite this, he is shown to care about Quinn and stays committed to her.

Sam loves to play football and to sing, and he is apparently a bit of a nerd when it comes to things like the movie "Avatar." He often does impressions of various celebrities. He was only recently taught how to tie his shoes by Mr. Schuester, which was mentioned in the episode, The Substitute. He struggles with his dyslexia throughout the series, making it hard for him to take tests.

Sam seems to become embarrassed easily by the attention he's given at times. He becomes increasingly self-conscious about his body, particularly when Mr. Schuester replaces him in the role of Rocky in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Although Will did it for other reasons, Sam assumed it was because he asked to not wear such tight-fitting shorts, and that stated he also felt grotesquely fat, despite Finn assuring him he was in perfect shape. This is also a regular feature in other episodes. 

When he returns in the episode Hold on to Sixteen, he seems to have gained a lot of confidence, perhaps due to his increased seniority and experience within the school.
