SAS Australia instructor Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham has torn into Roxy Jacenko.
The British soldier says he thinks the PR queen could have made it much further on the brutal reality show after she quit just six hours into filming.
“I think she talked herself out of it from the time she turned up. I know she had an injury before and I know she had some issues prior to it but if I am being honest, she used that as an excuse.”

“She was more than capable of doing a lot more than what she did, that is for sure,” Billingham said. “I don’t think she came in with the right mental attitude either, she was kind of stand-offish from the word go. She was not in the best of spirits, she was miserable for most of the time … for the six hours she was there. I was disappointed, she could have gone a lot further and done a lot better.”
Jacenko left after she was forced to get into a physical fight with former friend and iron woman Candice Warner.
Since the show, the pair have engaged in a pretty public feud.
Mark Billingham doesn’t agree with the pair arguing.
“That is just childish in my opinion,” he said. “Everybody went in together, everybody went in to get something out of it so I don’t think anybody should be taking it outside the program. Put it to bed and take what you got from it and be honest with yourself, that is what you have to do.”
But Jacenko wasn’t the only contestant he slagged off, also expressing his disdain for villain Firass Dirani.
“His attitude, he couldn’t keep his mouth shut,” he said. “He has been that used to everyone telling him he is a film star and he just couldn’t get his head around being told what to do and he wasn’t going to get his way one inch here.”
He added, saying actors can be “selfish, not really team players, thinking they are experts in everything”.
