4 finish SAS Australia …but only 3 given pass
Despite making it to the end, one still hadn't given enough for Ant Middleton.
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.

For james to get to the end and not get through is unnecessarily cruel, just like the show. Sounds like it’s not a team you want to be on anyway! #SASAustralia

James Magnusson did v well. Emotional or emotionaless; he has to let go of 1/100th of a second – it doesn't define him. #SASAustralia

I still have no idea how the recruits were supposed to know when to ditch the cover story during interrogation #SASAustralia
