SAS Australia 2021 might still have eight recruits battling it out, but betting odds have already indicated which celebrities will be the last three standing!

Reality TV oracle Sportsbet has put its money where its mouth is by tipping that three athletes will go the furthest ahead of the fast-approaching season finale.

NRL star Sam Burgess is predicted to be the last man standing in the Special Forces selection course with his odds sitting at just $1.17.

Not far behind former South Sydney Rabbitohs captain is track-and-field Olympian John Steffensen at $1.28, with AFL retiree Heath Shaw rounding out the final three at $1.40.

TBH this is surprising! We definitely had dual-Olympian Jana Pittman pegged as the strongest of the bunch, both mentally and physically after her consistent performance across the series. Now we’re sad she potentially won’t make it to the end!

Who Has Previously Completed The SAS Australia Selection Course?

Considering it’s one of the most physically and mentally taxing shows in the world, it’s no surprise that very few recruits make it through the entire course.

Still, it’s not entirely impossible, with three celebrity recruits passing the Special Forces selection course in SAS Australias inaugural season last year.

Chief Instructor Ant Middleton was the one to tell former Bachelor Nick the ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, comedian Merrick Watts and AFLW player Sabrina Frederick that they’d all passed the physically and mentally taxing course.

The news came after Olympic swimmer James Magnussen was eliminated from the show.

“Passing selection doesn’t prove that ‘I’ can do anything, it proves ‘You’ can do anything!” Merrick mused on Instagram after the final episode in 2020, telling his followers that he “visualised” the moment “hundreds of times”.

Sabrina also penned a message to her fans, saying that while the selection course was the “toughest” thing she’s ever done, it was the “best experience of [her] life”.
