Another #TheBachelorSA couple have called it quits not long after the hit show ended
Season two’s Marc Buckner and Marisa Van Wyk, who he chose as the winner in the final rose ceremony in a riveting finale back in May, have sadly parted ways.
Marisia posted a cryptic message on Instagram which alluded to her break-up with the Cape Town model and businessman.
The Afrikaans-worded post, which translated into English, read: “When I put my hands in yours one day, I’ll know that I can pack away my map, knowing that my search for you is over.”
In it she included the hashtags #KnowYourWorth #NotSettling #NotGivingUpOnLoveJustYet #ReadyForCommitment #Ready and #RespectOthers.
And according to Marisia, it’s been ‘a while’ since the split
Responding to a fan in the comments section who asked her “Are you guys still together or no?” Marisia replied: “No, haven’t been for a while.”
Marc also confirmed the news of the split to You magazine, seemingly revealing the split had been a messy one.
“I didn’t see the Instagram post…She’s blocked me. I can’t talk about this now. I have a lot to process,” he told the publication.
Marisia’s last post featuring Marc was uploaded on 4 June, whilst Marc posted a pic with her a few days later on his page, asking fans if they wanted to see more travel diaries from the couple.

The couple went public with their romance shortly after the finale, sharing with fans that they had been on several holidays together including one to Thailand.
Meanwhile Qiniso van Damme, also from season two, has been picked as the star of the country’s first ‘Bachelorette’. The news was announced on Wednesday evening to much praise from fans.
Perhaps Marc would be interested in signing up as a contestant to woo over Queen Qiniso, now that he’s single?
