Channel Seven has revealed the 17 celebrities who will appear in season three of SAS Australia, ranging from an NRL player to a boxer.
On Sunday, the network revealed the full lineup for the military-style competition, which includes a mix of well-known and contentious contestants.
Former NRL player Darius Boyd, model Simone Holtznagel, and Bachelor stars Anna Heinrich and Locky Gilbert are among the 2022 contestants.
They’ll be joined by former Olympic swimmer Geoff Huegill, Olympic diver Melissa Wu, AFL player Barry Hall, Melissa Tkautz of the Real Housewives of Sydney, and convicted cocaine dealer Richard Buttrose.
The evening will also include boxers Ebanie Bridges and Michael Zerafa, comedian Paul Fenech, rugby star Ellia Green, NRLW player Millie Boyle, motorsports broadcaster Riana Crehan, and AFL pundit Wayne Carey.
Orpheus Pledger, the troubled Home and Away heartthrob who was arrested for allegedly possessing methamphetamine in February will also feature on the show.
On Friday, the new cast members participated in a promotional photo session in Sydney, with production set to begin this weekend.
Filming will take place in the NSW Blue Mountains, according to a recent report by TV Tonight.
While the show’s base camp will remain the same as in season two, some of the locales and challenges will be altered.
