Mzansi romantics who love watching love stories unfold can look forward to joining the adventures of six women looking for love on M-Net’s latest offering, The Single Wives SA...
But after its debut on TV screens on Thursday night, the show was trending for a different reason – some Tweeps think the name of the new reality show a little confusing.
The Single Wives SA premiered on M-Net on Thursday night and is based on an Australian format.
The women were previously married and are now divorced and are looking for lasting companionship. This explains the name, but the use of “wives” remains confusing for many people on social media.
Who came up with this hashtag? How can you be single and be a wife at the same time or you wanted to write lonely wife #SingleWivesSA

Not everyone is confused. Many viewers enjoyed the first episode and applauded the contestants for leaving abusive relationships.
Is anyone watching #SingleWivesSA? It is so entertaining omg. I’m hooked.
Such a refreshing reality show for a change.

And then, there are some who are simply not sold on M-Net’s new content.
#SingleWivesSA probably the dumbest thing I have ever watched on TV.
