Qiniso Bags First French Kiss on The Bachelor SA!

We screamed!



The ladies vying for Bachelor Marc’s heart in M-Net’s spicy new season of The Bachelor SA are starting to show their true colours.

And, after this week’s one-on-one date, some of them are seeing vivacious, bubbly model Qiniso van Damme as serious competition – and a little annoying. But who wouldn’t be jealous of the lady who receives the first passionate kiss from the man they are all dating?

Marc invited Qiniso on the firt out-of-town date and whisked her off to Ushaka Marine World, where they braved it out to experience shark cage diving – a first for both of them.

Following their fun in the water, the couple headed to The Capital Pearls Hotel where they got to know each other better. But, it was during their walk on the pier that Marc presented Qiniso with a red rose, followed by some intimate lip locking.

The date was clearly a win in Marc’s eyes, who kept reaffirming that it was nothing short of perfect in his diary session. Marc admitted that he enjoyed how much they laughed together and that she felt like home.

He even went as far as saying that he would like to meet her family. Does this mean that Qiniso has fast-forwarded her way to the finals? Only time will tell.

Drama at the Bachelor mansion

Not only did Qiniso’s date sent ripples of antagonism through the mansion; the drama in the purple room continued! A much needed mansion meeting was held, after the ladies couldn’t bear the brunt of Bridget and Greta’s feud any longer.

The pair had to confront their issues and bury the hatchet, in aid of repairing the divide in the house. Bridget and Greta eventually hug it out. But, the meeting unearthed more drama with Nolo, who was left feeling victimised after being confronted for getting involved in Bridget’s and Greta’s drama. Did she really instigate the drama? Or was she trying to help?

The Group Date

In this week’s high-adrenaline group date, Rikki, Jess.C, Gilllian, Stefanie, Tamryn and Daniella had to compete to beat Marc’s time on a skid course, in a bid to win breakaway time with him.

The six ladies had their driving skills put to the test in a stylish Toyota Supra, but it was Gillian’s time of 01:08 that won her the honours – of a trophy – and note the date unfortunately. Marc decided that he wanted to get to know Rikki a little better, inviting her for some extra alone time.

The pair spent the rest of the afternoon, in the back of his cosy Toyota Hilux, with blankets and snacks. Even though the date wasn’t sealed with a kiss, there was a rose to sweeten the deal.

The Cocktail Party

Nolo fuelled the tension just as the cocktail party started by calling for a second meeting. She wanted to address her concerns and air her views on how she was portrayed for getting involved in the Bridget and Greta drama. The ladies did not appreciate her antics and felt that it was not the time nor place.

The Rose Ceremony

With two roses already handed out during the one-on-one dates, only fourteen roses were up for grabs at the Rose Ceremony. This week, Marc decided to send home 27-year-old nail artist Greta and 30-year-old soldier, Tamryn.

Greta’s parting words were, “I’m a little sad that Marc didn’t give me a rose, but at the same time, I’m happy that it was at this stage, and there was no heavy feelings involved,”. Tamryn said, “it takes two to tango, and I’m confident and okay with what I brought to the party thus far.

I’m not going to say that letting me go was not the right decision, but he definitely missed out,”. Greta leaves behind an emotional Pi, who didn’t imagine life in the mansion without her while Tamryn was the rock in the house that they’re all going to miss.

The Bachelor SA Season 2 airs every Thursday at 19:00 on M-Net Channel 101.

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.
