Qiniso Van Damme is hoping to find her dream man on the first-ever season of 'The Bachelorette SA'. 

The model and actress appeared on season two of 'The Bachelor SA'. She left the show heartbroken after Marc Buckner gave her the boot...

Qiniso was the first woman to share a French kiss with Marc. He went on to give his final rose to Marisia van Wyk. They have since broken up.

Will Qiniso finally be able to find her Mr. Right? 

M-Net's Lani Lombard believes the "fan favourite" is ready to settle down. 

"Our Queen Qiniso is quirky, sassy, sexy, smart, bold, bubbly, kind, confident, dynamic, in touch with her emotions, and true to herself – the type of woman that a diverse range of successful men would find irresistible. And the timing couldn't be better. She has reached a point in her life where she is looking for someone to settle down with," Lombard said in a statement

Qiniso, who is currently completing her MA in Social Anthropology, is looking for a "caring, kind, and honest" man she can spend the rest of her life with. 

"I’m really open to meeting all kinds of handsome hunks with beautiful personalities who think I might be their gal. I want someone who isn’t afraid to be themselves, is a citizen of the world, proud to be South African, and willing to grow with me. If he can make me laugh, he will definitely score some extra points. And being tall would be a bonus," she said. 

Qiniso is a catch by any man's standards. The 27-year-old speaks four languages - English, isiZulu, isiSwati, and IsiXhosa - and even knows a bit of Spanish and Afrikaans. 

Entries are now open. Single South African men over the age of 21 can enter via the M-Net website. Entries close at 23:59 on August 8, 2020.
