Preview: SAS: Who Dares Wins

SAS Who Dares Wins

The toughest show on TV SAS: Who Dares Wins continues its new run as recruits tackle ‘Jungle Hell’.

The jungle phase of SAS selection is the most gruelling and is used as the benchmark for special forces soldiers. This series the staff is an elite team of ex-special forces operators from the UK and US.

Taking the lead is Billy Billingham, expert in jungle warfare. He’s teamed up with new Directing Staff (DS) Chris Oliver, who’s military experience spans over 16 years. Chris is joined once again by Foxy and Rudy Reyes from the US. In this episode, 19 of the original 20 recruits remain in the Vietnamese jungle, but one recruit is stranded at the top of a 215-foot waterfall. He’s pinned to the rocks and is in fear of drowning. Will he manage to extricate himself? Chief instructor Billy Billingham explains that he’s lost fellow operatives on similar missions. Later, a breach of camp discipline leads to a ‘beasting’, entailing a relentless series of extreme physical tasks. Not all will survive. Those who remain are subjected to a round of ‘milling’, brutal hand-to-hand combat with their fellow recruits. Can they control their aggression and win the fight, or will they succumb to their opponent’s blows?
