For months now since the announcement in June, Mzansi has been speculating on who the first Bachelor would be and received the answer on Sunday night.

The long wait for the announcement of the first South African Bachelor ended on Sunday with the reveal of former Sharks rugby player and international model Lee Thompson and tweeps aren't feeling him. 

And while auditions have closed and we wait to see which one of the 25 lucky women stand a chance to end up with the 1.88m tall Thompson, his announcement sent divisive opinions through the Twitterverse.   

Thompson is the typical archetype that we've come to know from the American Bachelors with some Twitter users gushing over his looks.

However, others hoped that the first South African bachelor would have a bit more melanin.

The Bachelor will only meet the ladies once filming commences. The show will be screened on M-Net 101 from Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2019.
