Thursday night is Local Production night on M-Net 101.

What’s happening in The Bachelor SA and Still Breathing this week?

If you’re not part of the massive The Bachelor SA Season 2 following yet, or haven’t tuned into the brilliant new local drama series Still Breathing, you are missing out on great local entertainment. Luckily, you can binge-watch all the already-broadcast episodes of Still Breathing before enjoying the fourth episode, which premieres on M-Net 101 on Thursday night at 20:00. You can also see for yourself on DStv Catch Up how South Africa’s most eligible Bachelor, Marc Buckner handed out those coveted roses that keeps the gorgeous ladies in the show in the previous five episodes.

There are still 11 gorgeous ladies in the Bachelor mansion, all vying for Marc’s heart. In tomorrow night’s episode (Thursday 19 March at 19:00), our Bachelor sends a cryptic date card to the ladies. He wants to spend more time with someone who has already had the luxury of getting to know him on a one-on-one date. How will the news go down with the ladies who have never been singled out for a date at all? The contentious – and sensuous – date also involves body oil, which means Marc will have to take off his shirt!

More reasons to watch The Bachelor SA this week:

  • At last week’s rose ceremony, angel-faced active wear designer Jess.R, who Marc whisked off to Chobe in Namibia, handed him a mysterious letter. Should this even be allowed? Not if you ask her competition in the mansion!
  • Kisses galore! Marc locks lips with more than one of the lovely ladies at the Cocktail Party.
  • All the spice. Someone starts throwing shade at the Cocktail Party. But why?

Still Breathing, which follows The Bachelor SA on Thursdays at 20:00, follows the lives, loves and secrets of a group of friends who are brought together after the tragic death of their friend, Trent.

The lead roles in this poignant drama are portrayed by Kate Liquorish, Lorcia Kumalo, Shannon Esra, Ty Keogh, Brendan Pollecutt, Brandon Auret, Siv Ngesi, Susan Danford, Sean Taylor, Michéle Maxwell, Jane de Wet, Nandi Nyembe, Dorothy Ann Gould and Michael Richard.
