The Bachelor SA Episode Recap — The Night of Firsts!

The girls continued their pitch for Marc’s affections.




Last night (Thursday, 20 Feb) on the local reality dating series, The Bachelor SA,  consummate host Jason Greer revealed the meaning behind the first twist of the season – ‘The Wild Rose’.

The mysterious and desirable white rose that was handed to Pasha at the first Rose Ceremony possessed a power that made many of the girls envious – the power to steal any group or individual date off of a fellow lady, valid until the fourth Rose Ceremony.

Much to the ladies surprise, bombshell dancer Pasha wasted no time in putting her Wild Rose to good use – stealing the very first one-on-one date from 24-year-old sweetheart speech therapist Marisia. “I need to do, what I need to do.

And, as soon as I heard it was a one-on-one, I knew I had to take it,” Pasha explained in a diary session.  Understandably, Marisia was disappointed, as her opportunity to spend one-on-one time with Marc was taken away from her in the blink of an eye.


Marc, on the other hand, was surprised that Pasha used her Wild Rose so soon but pleased that he got to spend the date with her.

The pair spent the day doing the things that our adventurous Bachelor loves, in the great outdoors. The couple enjoyed a wild ride off-roading in a Toyota Hilux, followed by a tranquil hike through Hennops Hiking Trail, which ended with a picturesque sunset to set the tone for the rest of the date.

The evening progressed with a dreamy romantic picnic set up in the bush, with lush blankets and cushions, candles and flowers as they watched throwbacks of their youth days on a projector screen and shared funny memories of each.


The couple enjoyed the evening under the moonlight in each other’s arms, and at the end, Marc presented Pasha with a beautiful red rose, making her the first one-on-one rose recipient. Will this place another target on her back?

The drama at the mansion

Seems as if the sparks will fly in the second season of The Bachelor SA. Upon arrival at the beautiful Bachelor mansion,  the ladies had been split up into three different bedrooms – the pink room, the purple room and the red room.

The purple room has developed a reputation for being the ‘loud and proud’ room, which has become a tad intimidating for some of the roommates. Bridget and Greta have rubbed each other up the wrong way – prompting Bridget to move into the pink room. Will this move cause more tension and a divide amongst the ladies?

The Group Date

Marc invited Greta, Parushka, Mulesa and Bridget to the first group date which combined two of his passions – his now famous dog Luna and DYI projects. The stylish ladies each had to build a kennel, showcasing their own personality, to impress Marc’s furry friend. At the end of the activity, Marc chose Mulesa to spend some one-on-one time with, where he admitted to her that she is honestly one of the most beautiful women he has ever met.

The Cocktail Party

The girls who didn’t go on dates were burning to get to know Marc a little better. In fact, some of them were like vultures, making their moves with no consideration for the next, leaving the more timid ladies feeling stressed, as another Rose Ceremony loomed.

The tension was palpable and mounting. Adding to the tension, was the rumour that the purple room ladies were spitefully aiming to hog all the time with Marc.

The Rose Ceremony

With only eighteen roses and twenty ladies, two ladies left the Bachelor mansion. Greta, Tegan and Xia were left to the very end, with Greta feeling very insecure about receiving the very last rose.

At the end of the ceremony, 31-year-old Tegan and 23-year-old Xia found themselves without roses in their hands – bringing their journey to an end. “I don’t enjoy rejection, obviously I wasn’t good enough, and that hurts a little bit,” Tegan admitted in her diary session while Xia said, “not getting a rose, super disappointing. But, if I’m not what he is looking for, I cannot force that connection,”.

The Bachelor SA Season 2 airs every Thursday at 19:00 on M-Net Channel 101. DStv Premium viewers can also catch all the romance on Catch Up, or stream the episodes live via their mobile devices on DStv Now.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.




They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.


It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.
