Special Forces

GIGN - France. After the shock of five people leaving the process, only nine recruits remain. They face Tana and Toto, former members of GIGN, an elite tactical unit of the French police force. After eight days living under four other former special forces experts, the recruits have been pushed to their physical limits, so Tana and Toto take them down a more psychological and tactical route. To measure their abilities to operate under pressure, they are tested on how they deal with fear. To do this, Tana and Toto have them take part in a hostage rescue operation, which will determine who has the leadership qualities required in a special unit like GIGN. As a final test to see who will make it into the final, the recruits take part in a version of the most dangerous selection test in the world.
