Lee Thompson Named Mzansi’s First Bachelor

Over the past few months, M-Net has been hyping up viewers for it’s upcoming inaugural season of The Bachelor South Africa. From speed dating to auditions and even assisting with a proposal, the PR around the show has been incredible. Now, the channel has announced that Lee Thompson will officially serve as the show’s debut suitor.

Lee is a former Sharks rugby player and an entrepreneur with several successful business ventures on his resume. With his charming good looks and exquisite six-pack, it won’t come as a surprise to learn that he is also an international model as well.

“Our first Bachelor is a real dreamboat; frankly, a catch in a million,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “Once you are ready to look beyond that sexy six-pack and sultry smile, you you will find a sincere soul who oozes boyish charm – a guy with whom our viewers – and every contestant – will undoubtedly fall in love.”

Lani adds that recruiting the first Bachelor was “a tall order. Literally and figuratively speaking.” She says that “While the ladies could enter the show, it was up to us to find The Bachelor. After many hours of scouting for the Mr Perfect, we came up with a solution – we asked the shortlisted ladies, who come from all walks of life, to list the attributes that would sway them to say “yes” when the question is popped, ‘cause after all, the show is supposed to lead to a marriage proposal!”

So, what were M-Net looking for in their first bachelor. Well, when asked, most women told the broadcaster that he needed to be tall. The next requirement was “kind-hearted”, followed by “adventurous”, “generous”, “financially independent” and “fun”.

Naturally, Lee is incredibly excited about being South Africa’s very first Bachelor. “My life goal is to have an amazing family life and, yes, I do know that this is an unusual way to find true love, but something deep inside me tells me that the universe is going to give me what I need right now – the woman of my dreams,” he tells us. “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.”

The Bachelor will only meet the ladies once filming commences. The show will be screened on M-Net 101 from Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2019.
