The second season of M-Net’s The Bachelor SA has already provided a bounty of drama, buckets of tears, passionate encounters, and unpredictable rose ceremonies. It has been extremely difficult for SA’s new dreamboat Bachelor, Marc Buckner, to decide who to send home without a rose. Especially as some ladies have whispered more than sweet nothings into his ear. If you’ve missed out on all these spicy events, be sure to binge-watch all previous episodes on DStv Catch Up!
This week, the ladies’ emotions run particularly high. The thought of not spending enough time with Marc is a scary reality. Among the ladies, there are still two beauties who have been patiently waiting for a date – whether it’s a precious one-on-one or a group date. Will Andeline and Jess R. finally find their names on a date card?
More reasons to tune in this week:
• Marc invites one lucky lady on an exotic trip to Chobe Water Villas.
• There’s a fun talent show during which the ladies have to show Marc that they have confidence on stage. But there's a twist!
• Tears, tears, and more tears. A few of the ladies are feeling a little more nervous and vulnerable than usual. Have they done enough to get a rose?
• A dramatic turn of events at the Rose Ceremony.
• And, best of all, Marc is taking off his shirt again!
The journey’s of the thirteen remaining ladies to date:
• Andeline – The gorgeous redhead has not been invited to a single date by Marc since her arrival at the mansion. Last week, she had a fallout with Nolo, who completely disregarded the plan of giving her the first opportunity to chat with Marc at the Cocktail Party. Will she finally get her chance to get closer to Marc this week?
• Bridget – Bridget was one of the first lucky ladies to be invited to a group date, joined by Parushka, Greta, and Mulesa. On the date, they had to build a kennel for Marc’s furry rescue child, Luna. Since then, Bridget has had more drama than dates but continues to get a rose at the rose ceremonies. Is Marc stringing her along for the ride?
• Daniella – Daniella has only been on one group date and hasn’t had the opportunity to get some one-on-one time with Marc. At the cocktail parties, their interactions have been almost nonexistent. Does Marc know enough about her to keep her around?
• Gillian – Gillian with a G will always be unforgettable – she did, after all, sing a song to Marc on the red carpet. And, let’s not forget, she won the race in the Toyota Supra on the group date – but, she didn’t win the one-on-one time. She has been a bubbly figure in the house, but Marc may be overlooking her.
• Jess C. – Jess C. has been on one group date, but also, hasn’t left much of a mark on Marc. Will she make the right moves to secure a place at the mansion?
• Jess R. – Dazzling and graceful, Jess R. has been patiently waiting for her turn to get to know Marc. She hasn’t been invited on a single date, but she hasn’t let that get her spirits down. Is her time coming soon?
• Marisia – The sweetheart of the mansion was the very first lady to be invited to a one-on-one date, but unfortunately Pasha used her Wild Rose to steal it from her. She didn’t have to wait long, however, as Marc couldn’t wait to see her again and invited her for a second one-on-one, where things got very steamy…and very intimate.
• Mulesa – The sophisticated Mulesa joined Marc on one of the first group dates, where he chose her to spend some one-on-one time with and admitted that she is honestly one of the most beautiful women he has ever met. She didn’t get a rose on the date, but she’s held a special place in his heart.
• Parushka – Like Jess C., she’s been on one group date, but failed to leave a lasting impression. Is her time coming or are her days numbered?
• Pasha – Vivacious and confident Pasha received a Wild Rose at the very first rose ceremony, allowing her to steal someone’s date. She also impressed Marc at the waterpark group date, where she donned a sexy bikini and orchestrated alone time with him. Does she have any more tricks up her sleeve?
• Qiniso – A firm audience favourite, Qiniso was the first lady to enter the mansion and the first to lock lips with Marc. It happened during their unforgettable one-on-one date in Durban that sent waves of jealousy through the mansion. Many of the ladies don’t see their connection, but is there more than what meets the eye?
• Rikki – Rikki has been on two group dates, one of which allowed her breakaway time with Marc. She did receive a rose on the date, but not a kiss. Is she holding back or waiting for their relationship to develop further?
• Silke – The exquisitely beautiful Silke received this season’s First Impression Rose, which usually indicates being a frontrunner among the other 21 ladies. Thereafter, she hardly interacted with Marc and many date cards rolled into the mansion without her name on it. Viewers could sense Silke’s frustration. Then, last week, she made a breakthrough. She went on group date alongside Pi, Nolo, Rikki, and Pasha where she also got alone time with Marc – and a rose! Wanting to confirm her connection with him, Silke also stole a kiss from Marc at the cocktail party.
