In a first for South Africa and MNET… the season premier of The Bachelor SA will also flight on YouTube!
Johannesburg, South Africa – YouTube today announced that South African fans will be able to watch the Season Premier of The Bachelor South Africa this Valentine’s Day, 14 February, at 21:00 on the M-Net YouTube Channel.
On Valentine’s Day, February 14, viewers will have their first date with South Africa’s very first Bachelor, Lee Thompson. The dashing entrepreneur, international model, philanthropist and former Sharks rugby player will be laying his heart on the line in the hope of finding true love on M-Net’s new reality dating show, The Bachelor SA.
The 30-year-old Port Elizabeth native currently resides in Cape Town, where he runs a cleaning company, Clean Smart, alongside his non-profit organisation – the #LiveHopeLoveSA initiative.
Episode 1 of the Bachelor South Africa sees Thompson embark on his quest for love as he is introduced to 24 eligible ladies from across the country. The season premier will be available on the M-Net YouTube Channel for 28 days after it flights, for fans who want to relive every moment, and/or who can’t watch it on the night.
Lee, who is described as “kind-hearted, adventurous, generous, financially independent and fun” says he recognises that turning to a reality TV show to find love is an unusual method, “But something tells me that the universe is going to give me what I need right now – the woman of my dreams.”
The M-Net YouTube channel will show highlights and additional clips from all of the episodes in Season 1 as the season progresses, and will be available to YouTube viewers in all of the countries where M-Net/DSTV operates.
