SAS Australia sees Aussie celebrities take on a series of physical and psychological tests from an elite team of ex-Special Forces soldiers.
Cast: Ant Middleton, Mark Billingham, Jason Fox, Matthew Ollerton
Recruits race up a snow-covered mountain dragging a 60kg sled. Exhausted, they must then swim under ice, battling hypothermic conditions, only to discover the weakest will be sent home.
In a dangerous backward fall, the life of the jumper is in the hands of a fellow recruit. During an honesty test, some gobsmacking truths are shared. And a simple mistake results in a serious injury.
Recruits are brutally awoken by the sound of gun fire and a botched rescue attempt unfolds. Messages from home test the recruits' emotional resolve while a relentless pack march takes its toll.
Armed with rifles, recruits are tasked with a hostage rescue mission, before taking on their most dangerous task yet in near freezing water.
The fatigued recruits drop from a helicopter into 4°C water carrying 20kg backpacks, before making their way to shore as a group then racing to the top of a mountain.
In a punishing day, recruits crawl across a jagged ravine on a single rope above the ocean; are submerged in crashing, cold surf; and face a physical drilling that leaves them on the brink of collapse.
In freezing waters with plummeting body temperatures, recruits wait to be rescued by their teammates before they face a test of pure grunt and teamwork. An emotional departure surprises the group.
In an abandoned abattoir, recruits face a life or death decision before they are drilled physically into the early hours of the morning. Will they bow out from exhaustion or find the true grit needed?
Recruits are pushed to tackle their fears head on in a 60m high forward abseil, while a brutal game of murderball on a black mud plain leaves one recruit with a near concussion.
Celebrities undertake a series of extreme tasks, including jumping backwards out of a helicopter and hand to hand combat, as they begin the challenge of completing the gruelling SAS selection course.
