Whereas drama ran rampant on this season of Shahs of Sunset (thanks mostly to GG and MJ), former full-time-cast-member-turned-guest-star Sammy was a reliable source of calm.

He wasn’t in the series this season all that often (which surely helped), but when he was—primarily during a memorable trip to Cabo, and a failed dinner party at Reza’s house—he wanted nothing to do with the drama swirling around him, and often attempted to curb the fighting before it got too far. Reality television is great for the trainwrecks, but sometimes it’s nice to watch a genuinely nice person. Sammy is a reminder that people doesn’t always suck.
