Payal Sewbalak – fondly known as Pi - is a business development manager who lives in the City of Gold.
In the life of Pi, everything is pretty much sorted; the only missing element is a man of honour who can join her on her quest to scale ever-greater heights. In Pi's case, this will be no easy task. The confident, goal-driven beauty reached the summit of Kilimanjaro in July 2019.
Animal lover Marc will be that she completed a challenge to raise funds for the Sandton branch of the SPCA.

If they hit it off, Marc's adorable crossbreed canine companion, Luna, a rescue, will have to share a couch with Pi's pooches, Bella and Freddie.
Besides a shared passion for fur babies, both Pi and Marc are keen travellers who revel in an active lifestyle. A trip to Italy, France, Slovenia and Switzerland counts among Pi's stand-out life experiences. She has provincial colours in judo, baseball and volleyball and has already ticked sky diving, shark diving and swimming with dolphins off her bucket list.
Her personal motto is "visualise, internalise and realise". Pi is a straight-shooter who's not afraid to tell it like it is: "I'm in the show for what I regard as the only worthwhile reason: to find love. I have nothing else to gain from it. I don't need a social media following or a free trip, and I don't have a business that needs to be promoted."
The Bachelor SA Season 2 airs on M-Net (DStv 101) from Thursday, 13 February at 19:00.
