Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test S1

Based on the notoriously gruelling United States Special Forces selection course, the military training reality series Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test throws a group of celebs into some of the harshest settings in the world, where they’ll take on a series of gruelling training exercises that will push them to their limits both mentally and physically. The only way for these recruits to leave is to give up on their own accord, through failure or potential injury, or by force from the directing staff (DS) agents.

There’s no elimination, no grand prize, and no one is coming to save them (unless it’s in an ambulance).

Season 1’s contestants include singers Mel B (aka Scary Spice) and Montell Jordan, Teen Choice-nominated actresses Beverly Mitchell (7th Heaven) and Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey 101), and TV personalities Kenya Moore (The Real Housewives of Atlanta), supermom Kate Gosselin, Hannah Brown (The Bachelorette) and Dr Drew Pinsky, as well as Olympic soccer star Carli Lloyd, NFL receiver Danny Amendola, Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin, Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, pro basketball player Dwight Howard, pro baseball player Mike Piazza, chef and TV host Tyler Florence, and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

Nominated for the 2023 Critics’ Choice Real TV Award for Best Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Series, the Fox show is an adaptation of the award-winning British reality show SAS: Who Dares Wins, and is led by the same team of elite team of ex-Special Forces operatives: former United States Recon Marine Rudy Reyes, former SBS operator Jason Fox, ex-SAS Sergeant Major Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, and Nigeria-born veteran Navy SEAL Senior Chief-turned-actor, Remi Adeleke (Plane, Ambulance, The Terminal List).
