The competition launched in February and is the hottest wedding reality show on SA's airwaves. The wedding takes place on 26 March with an all expenses paid fantasy wedding at the V&A Waterfront next to the luxurious 35-metre yacht, Nautilus, and lavish honeymoon abroad worth R40 000.
Lekker Larry is an entertainer but also designs costumes for props and sets. He admits to wanting children and knows what it will take to make a marriage work. While he can be obsessive about keeping his house clean, he takes pride in his possessions and knows how to work hard. When his mother found out he was going to get married to a total stranger, she thought he joking. Even though she is still in a state of suspended disbelief, she is also supportive and wants him to be happy.
Five very eligible bachelors have been flirting, wooing and parading their personalities on air all week in the hopes of winning the heart of Lekker Larry and becoming the ONE who'll receive his marriage proposal next week.
- Flirty Frank is 28 years old and works on a cruise liner. He is outgoing, fun and has a good sense of humour but can be rather short tempered. He defines love as honesty, respect and two people sharing one life.
- Hastige Hendrik is 29 years old, works in marketing. He is an extravert, is sensitive and thoughtful but can also be quite judgemental. He has the ability to be incredibly compassionate and selfless and defines love as serious business comprising of discussion, understanding, compassion and support.
- Chilled Chad is 32 years old and works in the catering/hospitality industry. He is hard working and shy but has the ability to be outgoing if given the time. He tends to focus very hard on his career and sometimes doesn't take the time to do what is best for him. He defines love as hard work but worth the effort if you have someone who makes you happy.
- Juicy James is 27 years old and works in IT. He is sensitive, caring, romantic, yet fun, fit and outgoing. He is also passionate about life and all it has to offer. His definition of love is a quote by D.H Lawrence. "Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration."
- Sweet Steve is 29 years old, is self employed and is polite, friendly and supposedly honest.
