Four celebrities made it to the end of the SAS Australia course -but only three were deemed to have passed by instructor Ant Middleton: Nick Cummins, Merrick Watts and Sabrina Frederick.
Swimmer James Magnussen was cut seconds from the end, being told it “just wasn’t enough” despite enduring two weeks of brutal physical and psychological training.
Rally car driver Molly Taylor also quit after a punishing Hunter Force challenge, with recruits held captive and subjected to painful stress positions and disturbing noises.
At times the celebrities seemed confused as to whether they were supposed to keep their mission secret under interrogation… they weren’t alone… and were oddly praised for revealing it.
It was followed by The Sickener: a 3km artillery resupply carrying heavy sandbags and ammunition containers; evacuation through unforgiving terrain; and an uphill 4km sprint to an extraction point.
Despite passing the course, there was no series prize, nor the chance to join any SAS in Australia or the UK.
