M-Net gets set for its first local Bachelorette!

Who will be South Africa’s rose like no other?

Fans of DStv’s The Bachelor South Africa are about to get a double dose of action when a leading lady takes centre stage in the spin-off series The Bachelorette South Africa.

Liz Dziva, publicity and public relations manager of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, said the new show was already in pre-production and the identity of the star would be revealed soon.            

“Choosing the first bachelorette was a daunting task for the M-Net team behind the show, and although in other countries it is customary for the spin-off programme to pick a lady from previous Bachelor seasons,” she said.

“In this regard the team was spoilt for choice, as the two seasons to date of The Bachelor featured many stunning women who could easily step into this coveted role. Behind the scenes, the team was contacted by other potential bachelorettes with strong credentials, but who did not appear on the show.”

Since 2003, when the first US season of The Bachelorette was launched, the popular spin-off of The Bachelor has been produced in many countries, including Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Finland and India. The recent first season in New Zealand had a twist: instead of having one bachelorette, the Kiwis picked two.

M-Net will schedule The Bachelorette Season 1 on its schedule early next year, with filming taking place as soon as possible in 2020. In the meantime fans can follow news around the show on the M-Net website, and join the conversation with #TheBacheloretteSA on Twitter (@MNet), Instagram (@mnettv) and Facebook (@MNet).
