M-Net anticipates having its first season of the show to air early next year although the production process is expected to take place as soon as possible.
Qiniso van Damme
The gorgeous Qiniso van Damme is the first Bachelorette. She is also the first black person to top the headlines of the global franchise ever since the show launched in South Africa two years ago. Qiniso, who hails from Cape Town, is the younger sister of DA MP Phumzile. She is also winding up on her studies in social anthropology at the University of Cape Town.
During an interview with Sowetan Live, Qiniso expressed how nervous and excited she was to have landed the opportunity saying:
Being the first woman of colour for the franchise is a huge responsibility, but at the same time it is a huge privilege and I'm aware of how important it is for a brown girl to fill this role.
Qiniso landed the chance after she became the fans' favourite during the second season of The Bachelor, which aired early this year. She was among the twenty-one ladies who were vying for Marc Buckner's affection.
When asked about the qualities that she would be looking out for from the guy that she would like to date, Qiniso stated:
I'm looking for an honest and kind gentleman, who isn't intimidated by an independent queen.
