As a PO1, Remi Adeleke has supervised thousands of junior enlisted personnel in the US Navy. And even today, he’s keeping his passion alive by disciplining celebrities on Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.
Let’s explore more of this staff’s life as this Remi Adeleke Bio proceeds.
Remi Adeleke On Special Forces: World Toughest Test
Fox’s new reality series Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test premiered on Jan 4, 2023, and within a week, the unscripted show amassed millions of viewers. But it wasn’t just the celebrities that caught the viewer’s attention. The show’s no-nonsense directing staff including Remi intrigued many audiences as well.
Our star, Remi was one of the four directing staff (referred to as simply “staff”) in charge of the proceedings on Special Forces. His job was to keep the celebrity recruits in line and disciplined. The other three helping Remi to do so were Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham (former bodyguard of Tom Cruise and Angelina Jolie), Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox (SAS: Who Dares Wins alumnus), and Rudy Reyes (HBO’s Generation Kill actor) — all with less TV experience than Remi.
Remi infact has a lot more experience than the rest of the three staff on Special Forces. He’s appeared as a “TRF Lietuenatant” in Transformers: The Last Knight (2017), “Charlie Team SEAL” in SEAL Team (2017), “Cayden Marcus” in 6 Underground (2019), “SIS Undercover” in Ambulance (2022), “Tee” in The Terminal List (2022), and “Shellback” in Plane (2023).
Also, Remu has directed and written the shows Transformed: Cutting Room Floor Stories (2018), and The Unexpected (2022).
