Cape Town - M-Net has announced the name of South Africa's newest Bachelor, who will be looking love in The Bachelor season 2. 

Even though Lee Thompson failed to find a match in the first local version of the reality dating show, Marc Buckner will be handing out those sought-after roses this time around, in an attempt to form a long-term love connection.  

About the currency trader, M-Net's Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard, said: "Thirty-six-year-old Marc is the type of guy who puts his heart and soul into everything he does."

Hiking, kayaking, snorkelling, sky-diving, or enjoying a "picnic with a view" count among the nature-lover's best-loved activities

Marc also loves DIY projects, builds furniture, and has hopes of growing a vegetable garden. 

Jason Greer will be at Marc's side, reprising the role of the show's host.

HERE ARE 7 PHOTOS OF MARC, WHILE WE PATIENTLY WAIT FOR SEASON 2'S RELEASE DATE
