M-Net has recently confirmed that South Africa will have its first ever season of The Bachelorette.
Following two successful seasons of The Bachelor, a lady will now feature on the center stage.
According to a statement the local version of the global franchise spin-off series, The Bachelorette South Africa, is in pre-production and the identity of the country’s “rose like no other” will be announced this week.
M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard, claimed, “Choosing our first Bachelorette was a daunting task. Even though it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, it is customary for the spin-off programme to pick a lady from previous Bachelor seasons. In this regard, we’re spoilt for choice. Both seasons featured many stunning ladies who could easily step into this coveted role and we know how fans fervently rooted for their favorites on social media. Behind the scenes, we were also contacted by other potential bachelorettes with strong credentials, but who did not appear on the show.”
Finally, it’s now for single guys to get ready to put their names forward if they want to be part of the love journey. Entries for the show will open soon after the name of South Africa’s very first bachelorette is proclaimed.
M-Net will launch The Bachelorette season 1 on its schedule early next year, with the recording starting as soon as possible in 2020.
