  1. 10 should be happy with this season of HYBPA, would definitely have been much bigger with a good lead in like Amazing Race though…

    Been loving tuning into SAS, can’t wait to see it back next year.

  2. SAS is the first show I have watched on channel 7 in years and have been completely hooked.

    Well done to all for such a fresh and captivating production.

    • I’m the same. SAS Australia has been a revelation for me, i’ve found it very intriguing. You really get to know who the ‘celebrities’ are, what makes them tick and how much ‘heart’ they really have. Pound for pound Erin had the most ‘heart’, she just didn’t have the physique to keep up the stronger people. She and many others have really impressed me.

      Ill definitely back for the next season.
