The Bachelor South Africa 2

Hosted by Jason Greer, one man gets the opportunity to find the woman of his dreams - and hopefully his bride-to-be - in this primetime reality competition series.

The Bachelor embarks on a romantic journey meeting 22 women. After getting to know each one, he continues to narrow the field until ultimately one woman is left, to whom he 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 bachelor travels to romantic locations with the ladies, introduces them to his closest friends and family and visits their hometowns to meet their parents.

At the end of the journey, he will have had an unforgettable experience and, quite possibly, found true love. But the big mystery is: If he pops the question, will she accept?

This year's bachelor is Marc Buckner - a model, actor and fitness coach who also leases out his homes on Air BnB in Cape Town.

He also had a recurring role as Bollywood star Sunny Leone's husband Daniel in the ZEE5 original series Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone.

Please note: The first episode (only) will also be available on the Family, Compact and Compact Plus packages in DStv's usual annoying up-sell move.

Genre: Dating Game Show, Reality

Love is Blind

Nick and Vanessa Lachey host this social experiment where single men and women look for love and get engaged, all before meeting in person.

Singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, have signed up for a less conventional approach to modern dating where they hope to meet the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with... without ever having seen them.

With no distractions from the outside world, the singles talk to a stream of potential love interests and when a meaningful connection is made, they propose and then lay their eyes on their fiancé for the first time.

Engaged and back in the real world, as the couples plan their wedding day, they will quickly discover whether they can turn their emotional connection into a physical one before the fast-approaching ceremony.

This series will uncover whether looks or age do matter, or if love really is blind.
