SAS: Who Dares Wins
SAS: Who Dares Wins is a reality quasi-military training television programme produced by Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. There have been four main series since 2015. The Chief-instructor of the TV-show is Ant Middleton who is an ex-United Kingdom Special Forces soldier. The TV show pits contestants against harsh environments all around the world in a two-week long training course that is designed to replicate Special Air Service selection; a notoriously difficult programme that has been known to claim the lives of those who take it on. The show's directing staff take the recruits through hostile and unforgiving warfare environments, while testing their mental and physical ability through a series of tests. The fourth series which aired in early 2019 allowed female recruits to take part for the first time, inline with the Ministry of Defence's announcement that Special Forces selection would be open to women. In April 2019, a fifth series in which all of the contestants were celebrities was aired as Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins. Among the celebrity contestants were Olympic gold medalist Victoria Pendleton, and England rugby player Ben Foden.
