However, the publication’s source claimed that the presenter could have asked for more, given the ‘constant scrutiny’ the campaign will open her up too.
‘If she doesn’t walk away with $350,000 to $400,000, it is hard to know whether it’s worth it because of the constant scrutiny she is going be under,’ added the source.
The reported deal is also said to benefit Samantha’s employers Channel Seven, who will receive advertising dollars from WW.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Sam’s representatives for comment.
The Daily Telegraph reported back in December that Sam had been speaking to the company and ‘negotiating’ a deal.
At the time, the iconic diet brand said in a statement that a ‘partnership with Sam Armytage and WW isn’t factually correct.’
In June last year, the blonde TV presenter told Who magazine that she has ‘probably been in better shape’.
She explained: ‘Like a lot of other women, my weight goes up and down depending on my tiredness level.’

Sam went on to recall back in April 2018 when she spent two weeks in a hotel on the Gold Coast to report on the Commonwealth Games.
‘Anyone who travels for work will tell you living out of a hotel is not conducive to weight loss,’ she said.
‘There are times where I think, ‘I could just sleep for a month and eat salads,’ and it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea at the moment.’
