Ali Oetjen voluntarily withdrew from Channel Seven’s SAS Australia this week. 

But despite bowing out, the former Bachelorette has reflected fondly at her experience on the show.

On Saturday, the 34-year-old shared a series of images of herself during tough challenges on the show, as well as a lengthy caption expressing her gratitude.

She began: ‘I knew I’d experience personal growth both mentally and physically during this course because fear would be paramount, however I never knew it’d have such an impact in my life at the most divine timing. 

‘Pushing past my fears is freedom. Letting go is freedom and proving to myself my mind is THE ONLY thing holding me back.

The blonde beauty said being on the show reminded her of her inner and physical strength, her ‘never give up attitude’ and ‘overall powerful spirit.’

She also praised her fellow recruits, calling them: ‘the most incredible, genuine, humble, strong super stars and athletes!’

Ali said that being pushed, broken and lifted by the DS (directing staff) ‘created growth’ for her. 

She wrote that she thought they would be ‘heartless, angry soldiers,’ but discovered that ‘how much heart they have.’

‘I’m grateful for this experience sparking all WARRIOR WOMEN SPIRITS to soar!’ 

On Tuesday, Ali handed in her number and quit the show after suffering a panic attack before jumping out of a helicopter and into freezing cold water. 

On the ground, she struggled to calm herself down, prompting chief instructor Ant Middleton to step in.

He assured her she’d done a great job to come this far, explaining ‘it takes a unique individual to do the job that we do. It’s just not for some people. There’s no shame in that.’

Taking heed of his words, they then shared a hug, before Ali turned over her armband, marking her departure.

‘I have achieved a sense of feeling so proud of myself, that I pushed myself to limits that I didn’t even know I had. It’s just taught me so much,’ the blonde beauty later said.

SAS Australia continues Monday from 7:30pm on Channel Seven
