There are definitely sparks between Jessica Ross and Marc Buckner on The Bachelor SA.

Jessica’s journey is a testament to her commitment to love. Having been in two long-term relationships in the past, she decided to take the plunge again by joining the Bachelor SA.

“I went on the show for love, and I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know who the bachelor was when I applied but when I saw him, I knew there was something there, so I was ready to explore it,” Jessica tells YOU.

In the course of the show, the 28-year-old was in the house for several episodes before finally receiving her first date with the Bachelor.

To her surprise, Jessica got her ideal date. Enjoying Marc’s company against the backdrop of a breathtaking sunset, it was well worth the long wait.

“To be honest I was so shocked when I got that big date, I had no idea that Marc was so interested in me.

“We have similar life goals . . . so far I’m happy with what he’s presented,” she says.

Physical touch, generous acts and words of affirmation are Jessica’s love languages.

From sneaking the dreamy bachelor a love note during a rose ceremony to showing him how well she can communicate in the “love is blind” group date, Jessica has had many opportunities to show Marc her different languages.

Although she’s caught the Capetonian's attention, she isn’t yet certain if she’s won over his heart.

“The connection and attraction is definitely there, our conversations are always very easy and flowing.

“I just enjoy spending time with him so I’m looking forward to seeing where this could go,” Jessica said.

She might have been one of the last contestants to go on a date with Marc, but was the first to receive a piece of jewellery, assuring her of the bachelor’s feelings towards her.

Jessica, who says she’s been teased by fellow contestants, revealed that she is solely focused on her relationship with Marc.
