We’re down to the final few stars on the current season of SAS Australia on Channel 7, with the network revealing the next group of celebrities to face the brutal challenge when the show returns for another season in 2022.
All up, seventeen new star recruits have volunteered to face the series of physical and psychological tests from the real SAS selection process.
The 2022 season will feature Olympians Geoff Huegill and Melissa Wu, AFL commentator Wayne Carey, and champion boxers Ebanie Bridges and Michael Zerafa.
Joining them are some of our favourite reality TV contestants including former Bachelor and Survivor Australia alumn Locky Gilbert, fellow Bachie star Anna Heinrich, and Aussie model Simone Holtznagel, who also featured on I’m a Celebrity… Get me out of Here!
These men and women will be cut off from the outside world at a secret base – where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishing conditions – with no allowances or exceptions made for their celebrity status.
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.

Erin Holland reveals brutal ‘aftermath’ of SAS Australia
It is no mean feat to put your hand up to take part in the brutal military challenge, with this season’s participant Erin Holland revealing the brutal ‘aftermath’ of the SAS course after only a few days.
The former Miss World Australia was the second celebrity to leave hand in her number, after Brynne Edelstein exited on the first day, and took to Instagram afterwards to share photos of herself showcasing multiple bruises.
“THE AFTERMATH,” she captioned the photos.
“A raw look at what a few days of selection looked like (plus a sore back from 90+ kilos on it).
“SAS Australia is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. It’s 24/7 – so many tasks that can’t possibly all make it to air! SO much respect for my fellow recruits still toughing it out in there – it only gets wilder from here.”
SAS Australia season two currently airs Monday-Wednesday 7.30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
