    Obviously, mental stability, character, and mental agility dictate the late stages of the game and who actually makes it to the final end.

    What is sufficient on the physical side?

    If you can sprint 400m repeatedly you should be good.

    For something like a reality tv show, very low.
    However that is not what was being asked.

    You cannot really judge a person on how they will react until you put them in a similar/very similar situation. That is why they put people through interrogation training prior to deployment regardless of the theatre of operation.
    Obviously for SAS it will be more full on and will be aimed at weeding people out at the selection stage. For the above scenario I gave, they will build on the mental fortitude that they have passed selection with and provide them with a relevant set of tools to aid in their interrogation.
