About the Show

Kheth'Omthandayo is a South African reality dating show hosted by Siyabonga Radebe, in which a bachelor or bachelorette is matched up with four potential suitors who have to jump through hoops before they can bag a date and possibly land the love of their lives.

The suitor is put to the test by their potential love interest, family and their friends.

In the first challenge, all four suitors go through a questioning session by a panel that includes the love interest – whom they don't know – and must prove why they could be the best "Ms / Mr" Right for the seeker.

One suitor is eliminated after this interrogation, leaving three to battle it out for the affection of their potential bae.

The next segment is a tough one – trying to impress and convince a family member that they are "The One" who can take care of their precious loved one's heart.

The challenge can be anything from physical agility to emotional intelligence, so the suitor has to bring their A-Game along. No pressure! Only two admirers are left standing after this gruelling round.

Enter the Love Interest...

Based on what the bachelors or bachelorettes have learned about their potential love interest, they have to come up with a date to top all dates.

Who will get it right? Who will fumble? Who will walk off into the sunset hand-in-hand and who will do the walk of shame alone?

Kheth'Omthandayo is executive produced by Donald Clarke and Unathi Msengana for Lucky Bean. The series director is Moabi Maseko.
