This time though, the channel is bringing roses and romance to your screens with the Bachelor South Africa. The dashing South African Bachelor’s first date with M-Net 101 viewers is scheduled for the next Valentine’s Day, Thursday 14 February 2019. On the exciting news, M-Net 101 viewers is scheduled for the next Valentine's Day, Thursday 14 February 2019. In the meantime, M-Net and production company Rapid Blue have started the search for 25 beautiful single ladies who are ready to ignite the flame of passion with their Prince Charming – and then become his one and only true love.
Entries for The Bachelor SA opened online today at www.mnet.tv/thebachelorsa and close on 20 August 2018 at 23:59.
So, how do you become one of the South African Bachelor’s potential love interests?
If you are over 21 and single – either never married or legally divorced – and meet the requirements stipulated in the Terms and Conditions (published on the website), you need to fill out the short entry form on the M-Net website, where you will also be asked to submit two photographs of yourself.
Among the Terms and Conditions are that you are in possession of a valid South African ID document and that you will be available for filming between 6 October and 25 November 2018.
“The answer is simple: ALL the single ladies stand a chance! You just need to be ready for romance!”
Giant Character Suits
Not many of us have the girth worthy of a Japanese wrestler, but you don’t need to weigh in excess of 400kg to do a little Sumo on your bachelors with these padded sumo suits. If Japanese is not your thing then how about a chicken or kangaroo or even a “Supersize Me” Fatty?
Beach Bums Bachelors
Rent a spacious indoor arena which boasts 4 volleyball courts, DSTV, fully licensed bar, poker room, kitchen serving light meals and Billiards tables. This idea is appealing because you don’t have to worry about weather even if you’re playing beach volleyball, soccer, touch rugby or tug of war. Braai’s can also be included for a small extra fee.
A new phenomenon, Acrobranch is taking Joburg by storm so why not give it a try for your bachelors. Acrobranching is basically endurance testing yourself for fun and the best part is that it all takes place up in trees. Imagine a military fitness test but suspended in the branches of tall trees (with a harness). Acrobranch is great for the whole family but they have a fantastic adult course for bachelor type occasions.
Bells and Whistles
This is the all-singing, all-dancing inclusive package that will give the Bachelor and his mates an unforgettable experience, and includes climbing the Via Ferrata, a double pitch abseil, dinner for the hungry, overnight accommodation in the Mountain Lodge and breakfast the following morning. Need I say more!
This is the ultimate fun day for any “doomed groom”. A variety of options are available, with a choice of packages to suit every pocket. There are seven options with various prices all offering a combination of go-karting, archery and paintball. Some of the options also include spit braai’s etc making this a winner in my opinion.
All of these options can be conveniently booked through It’s a Date. Visit their site for more information and call them for a custom package to suit your needs.
