The Bachelorette South Africa is a South African version of the American reality competition dating game show The Bachelorette, created by Mike Fleiss, in which a group of men court an eligible bachelorette and are eliminated each week by her until only one remains.
One woman gets the opportunity to find the man of her dreams - and hopefully her groom-to-be - in this primetime reality competition series.
The Bachelorette embarks on a romantic journey meeting 24 men. After getting to know each one, she continues to narrow the field until ultimately one man is left, to whom she proposes marriage in the season finale.
The show also takes an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the lives of each participant involved in this unique courtship.
The bachelorette travels to exciting romantic locations with the men, introduces them to her closest friends and family and visits their hometowns to meet their parents.
At the end of the journey, she will have had an unforgettable experience and, quite possibly, found true love.
But the big mystery is: If she pops the question, will he accept?
Each new Bachelor episode contains a rose ceremony during which one or more contestants is eliminated. Eliminations are based upon date performance (i.e., how the men relate to the bachelorette on the dates.)
The bachelorette must follow a process of elimination where her pool of bachelors is narrowed down week by week by presenting a rose to each of the men she wishes to keep.
At any point during the process, if a man decides he is no longer interested in the bachelorette, although she may still be interested in him, he may leave.
In the end, the bachelorette selects one man and gives him the final rose. She may or may not propose to him at this final rose ceremony.
