Finding love isn’t always as easy as the movies and romance novels depicts it to be and while there are plenty of dating apps doing the rounds, they often leave you disappointed at the type of person lurking online.

So if you are going to put yourself out there on Tinder, you might as well take the leap and enter a reality television show that has a proven track record of helping South Africans find love.

The producers of Boer Soek ‘n Vrou are aware of at least 25 success stories of farmers who found their way down the aisle after participating in the series.

During the 15th season of the series aired earlier this year on kykNET (DStv channel 144) three of the top five farmers found love.

Love is blossoming for Louis B, while Hennie and Eloïse, as well as Francois and Vanessa, are engaged. That’s not all. Francois and Vanessa recently became the proud parents of a beautiful little boy.

‘Chance of finding love’

Boer soek ’n vrou presenter Marciel Hopkins, who will be presenting the series for a fourth time says the reality television show is a wonderful platform to get to meet and to know people.

“I’m encouraging anyone to be brave and to enter for their chance of finding love,” Hopkins said in a statement.

She added that the past 15 seasons have already shown how people’s lives can be changed when they meet the right person to tackle their lives together.

“For me, the success of the series lies partly in the fact that it offers enough time for participants to get to know each other better. It is important when making plans for their future.
