An early favourite to win SAS: Who Dares Wins has already emerged.

While three recruits fell during the opening episode of the show, a bearded Ant Middleton lookalike bullied his way to the top of the mountain and brushed off the remaining physical tasks with ease.

Let’s get to know Mark, the beast they call recruit no.6!

Who is SAS Recruit 6?

Recruit number six is called Mark Peart.

He is a former RAF firefighter and worked with the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue team.

Mark is big on adventure, travel and running, with an Instagram account full of pictures of him conquering various feats across the world.

Before entering the show, Mark told Channel 4:

I signed up because I wanted to challenge myself. It was also a distraction and a way to project negative energy into something positive that was going to help me move forward and grow as a person.

Why is Mark the Favourite?

Mark is an early favourite due to the ease in which completed all of the physical challenges.

While other recruits were hopelessly gasping for air because of the altitude in Chile’s Andes mountains, Mark looked as comfortable as the military veteran hosts.

He clearly has a lot of physical qualities too, with a few of the topless scenes almost causing viewers’ eyes to pop out.

See what we mean…

Mark has also clearly undergone some previous military-style training. In fact, he may have served in the military.

On Instagram, there are countless pictures of him in camo gear with hashtags such as #veteran, #royalairforce and #military.

What else are People Saying?

People also think that Mark may have an unfair advantage because he is chief instructor Ant Middleton’s identical twin.

While this definitely isn’t the case, you can’t help but feel some viewers on Twitter had a point.

They look pretty similar!
