In this brand-new series of SAS Australia, 17 celebrity recruits will be pushed to their limits in the extreme and unforgiving terrain of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. Over twelve thrilling episodes the recruits will be thrown in at the deep end as they endure punishing tasks derived from actual Special Forces Selection.
Chief Instructor Ant and his Directing Staff (DS) Foxy, Ollie and Billy are intensifying the course for the Australian Celebrities who will be going harder and longer than any Celebrity series abroad – adding twists and turns to the tasks in their quest to find people who are willing to drive their bodies and minds to the edge. This condensed version of SAS ‘Selection’ is the closest civilians can get to actual Special Forces training.
The DS and recruits will be based in a makeshift training camp in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. The near freezing temperatures & surrounding brutal landscape will challenge the celebrities like nothing they have experienced before.
As the recruits progress through the course, they will discover harsh truths about themselves whilst revealing and facing their fears. As they are stretched to their limits, the underlying issues will be laid bare as their personalities and bodies are broken down through mentally and physically gruelling challenges. For many taking part, this will be a life changing experience, but who amongst them has what it takes to make it through to the end?
