“I was paid 100 grand,” the 42-year-old Bra Boy recently told Triple M Sydney’s Morning Show, not shying away from boasting about his sweet paycheck.

Now, this is where things get a little confusing.

In September The Daily Telegraph released a report detailing the cast’s salaries. Apparently, Koby actually received one of the LOWEST salaries of this year’s SAS recruits.

According to the publication, he only cashed in between $50,000 and $60,000 for his SAS stint. Now, we don’t know about you, but someone is fudging numbers somewhere…

The SAS Australia Cheating Scandal

Earlier this season the former pro surfer copped a massive wave of hate after he cheated during an intense fitness test on SAS Australia.

Recruits were required to complete a series of painful drills in sets of 30, including push-ups, squats and burpees.

However, little did they know, it was really a test of their integrity and there were secret cameras set up to see whether the celebrities would cut any corners.

When reviewing the footage, Directing Staff discovered that Koby only did half the required amount of push-ups!

When questioned about this by DS Ant Middleton, Koby also insinuated that he did MORE than the required reps during the challenge! Ooops! Maybe Koby exaggerated his SAS payout too!

He’s been so lenient with the truth been before!

Koby’s Voluntary Withdrawal

Koby voluntarily withdrew from the Special Forces selection course on Wednesday night after opting out of a debilitating casualty rescue mission.

In pairs, recruits were required to carry 70 kilograms worth of sandbags across a ten-kilometre track. No thank you!

Due to a previously broken back, Koby realised that he didn’t have the physicality needed to complete the challenge.

Handing his number to the DS he said, “Like I said from the very start, if my back gets sore I’m outta there.”
