Per PEOPLE, the show won’t eliminate contestants based on anything other than sheer survival skills, so their grit and strength will be on the line. “Special Forces: The Ultimate Test puts celebrities you know and love through the most pure and authentic test of endurance that I have ever seen. In many ways, it is more about mental strength than physical strength,” said FOX’s President of Alternative Entertainment & Specials Rob Wade, according to the magazine. “It’s an eye-opening glimpse into the most intense training in the world, and gives a taste of the grit and bravery our armed forces show on a daily basis, which was a life-changing experience for these celebrities.”
Former special forces operatives Jason “Foxy” Fox, Mark “Billy” Billingham, Rudy Reyes, and Remi Adeleke will reportedly lead the 16 co-stars in grueling training exercises designed to test their limits. Only a potential injury, failure (forfeit) or being forced out by agents will end their run on the brutal reality series. The show is produced by Minnow Films, and is set to premiere in January of 2023.
