Oh my gosh, love is in the air! We were so excited when we heard that The Bachelor, South Africa is coming to town. M-Net has secured the rights to produce a local version of yet another worldwide reality television show smash hit – The Bachelor.
The real question we all are dying to find out is who is The Bachelor going to be? We have got that answer for you! M-Nets first South African Bachelor is Lee Thompson.
How Does the Show Work?
Rapid Blue is the production agency that will be filming the whole season of the show. The 25 lucky ladies have gone through a series of in-depth telephonic and one on one interviews by casting crew members to make sure that Lee finds his perfect match! The 25 beautiful ladies will be traveling in and around South Africa with hunky Lee. The show is currently being filmed from the 6th of October and will end on the 28th of November 2018. We might just know a girl that was casted for the show, ssssh but we can’t mention who she is just yet! The show will be airing on the 14th of February which is Valentines Day – what a coincidence?
The Bachelor; Lee Thompson:
Lee Thompson is smart, handsome and successful – what more could you ask for in a Bachelor? He is a business owner, model, and former Sharks rugby player. He has been revealed as the first-ever South African Bachelor. Lee is 29 years old and is originally from Port Elizabeth. He has spent many years in Johannesburg, Pretoria and now lives in Cape Town, South Africa. Ladies, maybe we will get a glimpse of him in and around Cape Town. Let’s keep our eyes open for this hunky, handsome supermodel!
“I can’t wait to meet and get to know the 25 ladies. Chemistry often works in mysterious ways and I have no preconceived ideas about who I want to spend the rest of my life with” – he says.
Lee is a chilled, laid back type of guy. He likes to find time to wind down on weekends! He enjoys braaing with his friends and family. Omg – we honestly need to score an invite ladies! Lee also enjoys traveling and he has traveled all over the world. His favourite international countries are London and Germany. When Lee was asked to describe himself in five words he said ”ambitious, hardworking, caring, humble and loyal”.
Lee is so TrendE. We love his style and personality! We are hoping that Lee finds his true love and we are also hoping that he gets down on one knee at the end to his dream woman. We can’t wait to see how season one of The Bachelor all unfolds!
