She made her debut as a reality star in November 2020, appearing on SAS Australia. 

However, she quit just two days into the gruelling military-style show, after Firass Dirani’s antics forced the team to run a series of laps as part of a punishment.

In October 2004, Schapelle became a household name when she was arrested at Bali airport with 4.2kg of cannabis wrapped in plastic inside her boogie board bag.

The world watched in May 2005 as she broke down in the Denpasar courtroom after being sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment in Kerobokan Prison.

Following a series of sentence reductions, Schapelle was released on parole in February 2014, having served nine years behind bars.
