The final rose
As Marc Buckner’s season of The Bachelor SA comes to an end, we had a rose ceremony of our own.

Apart from going on candle-lit dinner dates, bungee jumping and mountain-biking each week with charming Marc Buckner on season 2 of The Bachelor SA (2019-now), 22 stunning single women had their claws out and fingers crossed that they’d receive a rose at the end of each episode. This red token not only meant that they were safe for another round, but that they’re also one step closer to winning his heart. “My least favourite part is the rose ceremonies,” says 37-year-old Marc (read more about his experience on p16). “Even if I don’t feel that kind of bond with someone, where I see us getting into a long and deep relationship, I still consider them friend. It’s difficult to say goodbye. I’ve never been good at break-ups.”

NIPPING IT IN THE BUD

There’s always the first impression rose that is handed out in episode 1, given to the single lady who catches the bachelor’s attention. This season the producers turned the stakes up a notch when they introduced the coveted white wild rose, giving the holder the power to steal a date at any time and therefore spend extra time with Marc. Fourteen rose ceremonies in and there is going to be at least one more broken heart when the finale airs on Thursday 28 May.

There are only two women still left fighting for love and hoping that Marc chooses them. But while The Bachelor is handing out his last rose to the one woman he’s planning to share the rest of his life with, we’re giving the ladies commemorative roses after a dramatic season that left viewers with countless cringeworthy moments, laughs, shocks and a whole lot more.
