Australian diver Sam Fricker competed in the 2020 Summer Olympics. In the men’s 10m platform competition, he came in 28th position. Fricker is not only an athlete, but also a humanitarian and environmentalist.
The diver is the star attraction heading to Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games, where he will compete in the men’s 10m platform, 3m springboard and 3m synchronized springboard. He has nearly a billion views on his YouTube channel and 1.5 million followers on TikTok. He hopes to add to the number of medals won by Australia at the Commonwealth Games.
Due to the participation of the young athlete in the Commonwealth Games, he is becoming more and more famous on social networks and people are starting to wonder if he has a girlfriend.
Melissa Melick, girlfriend of Sam Fricker
Melissa Melick, who Fricker is involved with, is a mystery to most people.
Melissa has 2,838 followers on Instagram and goes by the handle @mel melick. It’s largely absent from Frick’s personal Instagram account, @sam.fricker, but can be found on his business page, @sams.straws, where he offers eco-friendly and sustainably produced straws. In the photo, Melissa is seen posing with Frick’s wheat straws. Additionally, she appears in Frick’s TikTok videos.

The diver owns and operates a few green businesses. He is an environmentalist. He founded the SAM swimwear brand as well as Sam’s Wheat Straws. In his first venture, Frick sells wheat-based alternatives to plastic straws; in his second, he uses a material composed of 80% recycled plastic. He relies heavily on social media to market his environmental conservation related businesses.
Sam Fricker’s Previous Partnerships
Fricker turned 20 on May 4, 2002, making him a young adult. The diver hasn’t spoken much about his previous romances, but he’s been open about his relationship with Melissa, who is also 20.
Sam may be dating Melissa for the first time, but it’s possible he’s had at least one other relationship before. Because the internet isn’t aware of any of Frick’s relationship timelines, we’re limited to guessing at this time.
What does Sam Fricker earn in his career?
Sam earns money from various sources. He makes money from his social media fame, green businesses and involvement in sports. All things considered, he must be earning around $1 million a year.

Large companies and profiles wishing to grow their TikTok audience can ask well-known TikTok users for dedications or promotions. Shoutout prices can vary widely, and unlike YouTube earnings, TikTok influencers can choose to set their own prices. Every thousand TikTok users are thought to cost a promoter between $2 and $4 in shoutouts. Higher fees apply to influencers with more outstanding reputations or profiles with higher engagement rates.
Making these estimates and factoring in Fricker’s 1.5 million followers, one can estimate that his TikTok earnings alone exceed $100,000. Although the numbers will likely increase, let’s take that as a rough estimate. More than a billion people have watched the swimmer’s YouTube videos, which examine his chances of making seven figures.
Sam also has a swimwear and straw business, which boosts his profits outside of work. All in all, he must earn a big salary.
