SAS Australia on Channel 7 – TV’s toughest test is back! Who will pass selection when SAS Australia returns 7.30pm Monday

Fourteen celebrity recruits are dropped into the harsh and unforgiving Jordanian desert, surrendering themselves to the brutal SAS selection course – 10 days of physical, psychological and emotional testing.

Day one sees the recruits buried alive under the scorching desert sand before a 10km run to base.

Hosed down and given their numbers, they’re shown the primitive conditions of the camp. The afternoon has them run and board a fast-moving train and retrieve sensitive military information.

Drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury reveals the torment of life in a Columbian jail and actor Craig McLachlan gives his side of the scandal that engulfed his life. A mysterious injury sees another recruit leave the course.

About SAS Australia

The most savage show on TV, SAS Australia, returns to Channel 7 and 7plus on Monday, 9 October with a new group of star recruits descending on one of the toughest environments faced by Special Forces operatives: the Middle East. 

Former world boxing champion Anthony Mundine, ‘Cocaine Cassie’, Olympians Stephanie Rice, Peter Bol and Matthew Mitcham, Balinese princess Lindy Klim, Thai cave rescue hero Dr Craig Challen and Brownlow medallist Jason Akermanis are just some of the 14 Aussie celebrities who have volunteered for the toughest challenge of their lives: a series of physical and psychological tests from the real SAS selection process.

For the first time on SAS Australia, these men and women will travel offshore to a secret base in the Jordanian desert where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishingly hot conditions without allowances for their celebrity status or gender.

Chief Instructor Ant Middleton is once again joined by Ollie Ollerton and two new Directing Staff, Jamie “Jay” Morton and Anthony “Staz” Stazicker.

With a combined half-century of Special Forces experience between them, their mission is to break down each recruit and rebuild them to be the best versions of themselves, determining who, if any, have what it takes to be selected as a fellow SAS soldier.

SAS Australia is produced by Screentime, a Banijay Group company, based on a Minnow Films format.
