The Selection: Special Operations Experiment is a new unscripted series from History that will see 30 civilians put through their paces by six Special Ops vets.
These civilians walk straight into special ops selection from six experienced vets who have completed the training themselves.
As one says: “They’re coming off their CrossFit and Piliates and we’re kicking them right in the ass.“
Another points out just because there are cameras filming does not mean it’s a game, he says “they are not in charge, we are.”
The testing involves physical fitness, will power and even severe simulated interrogation.
Expect blood, sweat and tears as these civilians get the shock of their lives.
One of the instructors is Bert Kuntz who was a Green Beret. His calling to the military came later than many, at 26 after the attacks on 9/11.
He said day one of special forces selection was probably most nervous day of his life.
400 other guys taking a PT test with some other hopefuls who look like they were built to play football.
Out of hundreds only 69 made it through selection and only 25 of those got through the special forces training first time.
Now Bert is 55 pounds heavier, faster, stronger, smarter and a better person.
