SAS Australia on Channel 7 – Day 6 starts with eight recruits still contending to make selection. But an aggressive game of murderball, pitting one against the other in a brutal display of power, forces one recruit to re-evaluate his place on the course and shocks all with his untimely withdrawal.
Actress Zima Anderson is singled out as the weakest on the course before revealing a childhood spent in the foster care system and a mother with debilitating schizophrenia. Task 2 has the recruits split into Alpha and Bravo teams and challenged to carry 150kgs of military supplies through the desert to the peak of a mountain range, resulting in an unlikely hero.

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.
