RECAP | Pete Murray and Alicia Molik the latest to leave SAS AUSTRALIA

Advertisement

Tonight on SAS Australia, the 14 remaining celebrity recruits were taught how to use aggression to their advantage by turning it on and off when needed.

Day five got underway with a dangerous fast rope insertion into water, followed by a casualty rescue mission in an abandoned compound, where only a handful recruits successfully located both casualties and passed the task. 

Chief Instructor Ant Middleton and course medic Dr Dan Pronk took tennis legend Mark Philippoussis through his psychometric test results, which showed high activity but low drive, suggesting a lack of passion and aggression.

Middleton challenged the tennis star:

“You’re lacking that fire, that aggression, to get the job done. We’re seeing the work ethic but I need more.”

Philippoussis replied:

“I want to be a better husband, I want to be a better father. I need to come back updated to my family, and for myself, because I know that’s going to help me achieve bigger things.”

From freezing cold showers to emptying the latrines, life on Base got real for some recruits before they all came face to face with the ultimate test of controlled aggression – a vicious hand-to-hand combat test where the only form of defence was attack.

Bra Boy Koby Abberton took on River Boy Dan Ewing, while the pairing of the course’s oldest recruit, Kerri Pottharst, against Jessica Peris sent shockwaves through the group.

During a savage fight with Mark Philippoussis, musician Pete Murray fell and dislocated his elbow, a serious injury which left him with no option but to be medically withdrawn from the course.

On his medical exit, Murray said:

“I didn’t expect to go out like this. I was getting flogged, I couldn’t get close to him.”

Alicia Molik chose to hand in her number after retreating from the onslaught of Jana Pittman’s punches in a brutal bout.

Said Molik:

“I just got scared. I thought I’d be a good fighter. I tried my best.”

The 12 recruits still on course in the hope of passing SAS selection are:

Bonnie Anderson – Singer / Actor
Dan Ewing – Actor
Heath Shaw – AFL Star
Isabelle Cornish – Actor
Jana Pittman – Dual Olympian
Jessica Peris – Sprinter
Jett Kenny – Ironman
John Steffensen – Olympic Medallist
Kerri Pottharst – Beach Volleyball Olympian
Koby Abberton – Bra Boy
Mark Philippoussis – Tennis Legend
Sam Burgess – NRL Star

Then, Tuesday 7.30pm…recruits are split into teams for a punishing boat race where leadership is called into question, plus Sam Burgess makes a heartbreaking admission and the recruits experience a test of order and discipline.

SAS Australia has uncensored episodes, deleted scenes, extended interrogations and exit calls exclusively on 7plus.


SAS Australia – Monday to Wednesday 7.30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
