    More than on SAS, “On Million Dollar Island you get to see the real me.”

    In the meantime, Ant gave a sneak peek of SAS Australia’s upcoming season when he joined Katie Richie on Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa earlier this week.

    He said, “There are some genuine psychological undoings and rebuildings.”

    A few folks wanted to leave pretty quickly, but I told them, “No, I’m not done with you.”

    Although Channel 7 has not confirmed an air date, it is anticipated to be in September or October. While some participants for the forthcoming season have already been revealed.
