The Selection Full Episode Guide

  • The participants have to play an elaborate game of hide and seek, and practice their camouflage skills.

  • The remaining participants have to rescue a "drowning pilot."

  • After only two hours of sleep, the instructors lead a grueling day of Navy SEAL training in the Pacific Ocean, where exercises in surf immersion, land portage, and extreme exposure to the cold push the participants to the edge.

  • 30 civilians begin the most intense physical and mental challenge of their life as they begin The Selection, led by six Special Operations veterans. Unrelenting physical training, interrogations, and tear gas exposure introduce these civilians to what lies ahead. Many will quit before day one comes to an end.
