Seventeen stars volunteer for the toughest test of their lives
The most talked about show in the country, SAS Australia, is back in 2022 with a brand-new line-up of star recruits, ready to take on the gruelling SAS selection course.
Seventeen Aussie celebrities, including Olympians Geoff Huegill and Melissa Wu, AFL commentator Wayne Carey, singer/actor Melissa Tkautz, reality stars Locky Gilbert and Anna Heinrich, and champion boxers Ebanie Bridges and Michael Zerafa, have volunteered for the toughest test of their lives – a series of physical and psychological tests from the real SAS selection process.
These men and women will be cut off from the outside world at a secret base in spectacular terrain – where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishing conditions – with no allowances or exceptions made for their celebrity status or gender.
As they’re subjected to extreme physical endurance, sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing, the celebrities will be pushed beyond their limits. Some will reach breaking point and withdraw. Who will have the mental strength to tough it out to the end?
