The show is meant to put contestant through obstacles meant to resemble what Special Air training is like. However, according to Rusty Firmin, a famous Airmen, the show falls short. In an interview with The South and North Divine Podcast, he explains that much of the show has to do with water- and lacked the diversity of mountains and other things that airmen had to go through. He explained it as “unlike “any training he has ever done. In a way to capture viewers attentions the show tried to entice its targeted audience like military gamers, fans of games like Call of Duty through Ads. Reality TV has no line drawn as far as what is reality and what is game, Firmin explained.
