CopperStone Promotions launched its first annual SA Bachelor & Bachelorette of the Year in 2011, with great success. This year will mark the 6th annual competition.
The competition was started to find South Africa’s most eligible bachelor and bachelorette, someone who encompasses brains, beauty, entrepreneurship and the spirit of Ubuntu. It is not a match-making competition, nor a beauty pageant, rather a competition where successful single candidates who are not married or engaged and aged 20 years and older, can make a difference and create awareness through charity or community work.
Successful candidates are chosen country-wide for judging. A carefully selected judging panel of individuals who are specialists in different fields selects the cream of the crop to battle it out to become the next SA Bachelor and Bachelorette. The finalists will find their own sponsors, compete based on several challenges throughout the year, do their own fundraisers and media drives before the winners are announced at a red carpet formal event in November each year.
During the past 5 years we have raised in excess of R650 000 for various charities.
This year our focus will remain on children. In essence, we as a society have failed our children. Are we raising a generation of narcissistic kids who think only about themselves all of the time and feel a sense of entitlement? This year the competition will start a countrywide awareness initiative, based on tolerance, appreciation, literacy and kindness, to assist in building a more kind and gracious nation.

As always we will continue to support childhood cancer. In South Africa, less than half of the children affected are diagnosed at an early stage and reach a treatment center in time. Many are diagnosed at an advanced stage of cancer with poorer treatment outcomes and almost half are never diagnosed and so do not receive any treatment.
If you believe you have what it takes to be this country’s most eligible Bachelor or Bachelorette, and want to BRING ABOUT CHANGE, make sure you enter this year!
