Sam Hernandez is a Mario Lopez type. Handsome but somewhat nerdy, he is a photographer for the Dallas Morning News. He has the hots for Jessica and they have sort of a "flirty" relationship, but whether or not it will ever go beyond that is anyone's guess. In the meantime, they enjoy working with each other and do so as often as they can. But while Jessica is sort of a "rules are optional" type of person, he's more of a Boy Scout. Thus, spending time with her sometimes gets him into trouble.
