‘I said to Sabrina as a joke, my kinky sense of humour everyone, I looked at her, I said the DeNiro thing, “I’m watching you, I’m watching you”,’ he said.
‘That’s all I did. She got upset with that,’ he added.
The comments were after Sabrina lead a mission with Merrick and James, with the men questioning if she was a ‘mole’ in the challenge.

Firass went on to say he offered no apology to her or the group: ‘There is no apology. Apologies, no apologies here mate.’
The actor explained that he ‘loves’ Sabrina with the pair actually striking up a friendship on the show.
‘I’ll tell you what it is, I’ll tell the truth. She’s 23, she’s a very strong athlete, strong leg, I love Sabrina,’ Firass said.
On edge: Sabrina claimed Firass made her cry by saying unkind comments to her every day during filming of the hit show, which Firass denied
Firass denied her claim that she was ‘crying’ because of him on the show. Instead, saying that ‘everyone was crying’ on the tough series.
It comes after Sabrina made comments about Firass while speaking to News.com.au on Wednesday. She said he pestered her with unkind comments.
‘Personally, he would just say one-line comments to me every day,’ she said of Firass.
Emotional: ‘I couldn’t understand why he was saying the things that he was saying to me,’ she said last week, explaining that Firass’ (pictured) comments eventually drove her to tears
Sabrina insisted that despite her stoic on-screen persona, she is actually a very ’emotional’ and ‘caring’ person.
‘I couldn’t understand why he was saying the things that he was saying to me,’ she said, explaining that Firass’ comments eventually drove her to tears.
‘Just on that one day he got me and I just lost it. I’m a very honest person with my emotions and of course I don’t want to cry on camera but at the same time that’s how I felt at the time, she added.
‘I just lost it’: Sabrina didn’t reveal exactly what Firass had said to her in her own interview, nstead choosing to make general comments about him ‘refusing to accept responsibility’
Sabrina didn’t reveal what Firass had said to her, instead choosing to make general comments about him ‘refusing to accept responsibility’ for his selfish antics.
While Firass has said sorry to her in the past, Sabrina said his apology wasn’t genuine.
It comes after fellow recruit Ali Oetjen blasted Firass’ divisive actions on Channel Seven’s military-style show.
‘Firass just has no remorse and he has no awareness of his actions,’ the former Bachelorette told Daily Mail Australia.
‘I think that was the most annoying and frustrating thing, and I can’t understand why he was the way he was.’
Ali claimed that Firass often seemed oblivious to how his actions impacted the rest of the group. Which is reflective on the series.
SAS Australia continues on Channel Seven, Monday, 7.30pm
