SAS Who Dares Wins: Who is DJ O’Neal?
DJ O’Neal – AKA ‘Number 9’ on the show – is a 35-year-old father-of-two who hails from Bedford.
Speaking of his experience on SAS: Who Dares Wins, DJ said: “I have two children who, at 14 and 11, are at the age where they require a role model. I wanted to show them that you can step back and do something that you won’t necessarily succeed in.“
He also said that one of his biggest challenges going into the competition was dealing with having to listen to authority, so viewers will have to wait and see whether DJ makes it to the final rounds of the competition after episode 5 which airs on June 6th.
