However, while we take our hats off to all 17 of them, the Daily Mail reckons they’ve figured out who makes it to the final three.

According to the publication, comedian Merrick Watts, rugby union player Nick Cummins and AFLW star Sabrina Frederick are the ones who will battle it out at the end of the show.

While there’s no indication where they got their information from, the report may come as no surprise to fans of the show, with all three recruits pushing themselves to the limit on the series and seriously impressing the staff.

During the course of the show, many of the recruits had their calorie intake drastically reduced to as low as 1,400 per day, they had no access to hot water and there were no flushing toilets.

46-year-old Merrick Watts called the experience ‘life changing” and said it’s “possibly the most rewarding and enlightening thing” he has ever accomplished.

Merrick prepared for the course by doing strength training as well as cardio and HIIT. He also did six-hour pack marches with a 40kg bag on his back and did extensive cold water training.

Meanwhile, 33-year-old Nick Cummins said the experience forced him to explore his resilience.

The Gold Coast local mainly prepared by focusing on endurance training and practiced mindfulness so he was ready to commit to any challenge.

Melbourne Richmond player, 23-year-old Sabrina Frederick, called the course the ‘toughest thing’ she’s done physically, emotionally and mentally.

Other than her regular training she does for football, Sabrina prepared by running treks with a weighted vest and SAS boots. She also “did a hell of a lot of military push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups.”

Tonight, recruits are tasked with a hostage rescue mission as SAS Australia continues at 7:30pm on Channel Seven.
