Molly Taylor joins celebrity cast for new reality TV program
Molly Taylor has been officially revealed as one of the 17 cast members for the Seven Network’s new program SAS Australia.
In what the former Australian Rally champion has described as the “toughest experiences of my life,” the 32-year-old is pitched against an eclectic group of sports stars, celebrities and Australia’s most famous convicted drug smuggler – Schapelle Corby.
Other stars include Olympic swimmer James Magnussen, Rugby star Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, comedian Merrick Watts and cricket legend Mitchell Johnson.
SAS Australia sees the contestants put through the grueling course by an elite team of ex-Special Forces soldiers, with military-style physical and psychological challenges, run by ex-Special Forces soldiers.
SAS Australia is not a game. There is no winner or prize at the end as the recruits are tested to see who can tough it out to the end.
The show took place in Queenstown, New Zealand and will premier on Monday, October 19.
Taylor, the 2016 Australian Rally champion, will also be part of the Seven Network’s motorsport coverage when racing returns, acting as a pit lane reporter for the TCR Australia, S5000 Championship and more.
Taylor says that it was a true physical and mental challenge.
“It was a once in a lifetime experience, getting a glimpse of the SAS world and the challenges that they face,” she said.
“It was certainly one of the toughest experiences of my life, but also the most rewarding too
“I like to think that I push myself out of my comfort zone, but that was on another level.
“The put you under immense physical stress, and then make you perform other tasks that test both your physical and mental limit. It’s pretty epic.”
