In the deep end

By SEVEN

Olympic diver Melissa Wu will not let size stand in her way

Olympian Melissa Wu reeks of determination in an all-new sneak peek of the upcoming season of SAS Australia, starting this month on Channel 7 and 7plus.

I am the person that won’t give up

Melissa Wu

Says the four-time Olympic Games and four-time Commonwealth Games athlete.

At just over five feet tall (153 centimetres), Melissa has enjoyed success in her 19-year diving career, including Olympic Silver, Olympic Bronze, Commonwealth Gold and Commonwealth Silver medals.

But in distressing scenes, it seems Melissa may have met her match on the SAS course, as she’s seen slamming head first into the ground while exiting a gassing drill, with Chief Instructor Ant Middleton calling for medical assistance.

I may not be the tallest or the strongest.
But what matters is that you keep bouncing back.

Melissa Wu

Melissa is one of 17 Aussie celebrities embarking on a life-changing experience – a gruelling series of physical and psychological tests from the rest SAS selection process.

Pauly bares all

By SEVEN

Funny man Pauly Fenech gets serious on SAS Australia

Comedian Pauly Fenech bares all in an all-new sneak peek of the upcoming season of SAS Australia, starting February on Channel 7 and 7plus.

People probably think I’m this burnout-doing, hot tub-loving, silly comedian.

This is going to be the serious side of Pauly Fenech people haven’t seen before.

Pauly Fenech, Fat Pizza and Housos creator/star

As he tackles the epic SAS challenges, Pauly appears to ruffle some feathers, with fellow recruit Locky Gilbert calling him a liability.

I’m the little guy who’s copped it his whole life.

TV people don’t look like me. I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t resilient.

Pauly Fenech, Fat Pizza and Housos creator/star

Pauly’s trademark cheekiness is still evident however, as he strips naked in front of the DS (Directing Staff) and later dares to kiss Chief Instructor Ant Middleton.

I have no shame.

If I pass, I’ll be like Muhammad Ali. I’ll be pumping myself up for the next 20 years.

Pauly Fenech, Fat Pizza and Housos creator/star

You keep getting beaten down and every time you get back up.

You are one tough guy.

Ant Middleton, SAS Australia DS

Pauly is one of 17 Aussie celebrities embarking on a life-changing experience – a gruelling series of physical and psychological tests from the rest SAS selection process.
