The Bachelor SA's mom speaks: 'We will support him and whoever he chooses – if he chooses someone' TheBachelorSA
Besides the beautiful women in the show, there's another very important woman in the life of Marc Buckner, the hunky bachelor of the second season of 'The Bachelor SA: His mom, Jenny.
Can you tell us a bit more about what Marc was like as a child?Intelligent. Witty. He would spend most of his childhood years either in water or in the mountains – always with animals. He's a huge animal lover, the whole family is. And growing up as a teenager I think he came more into himself, and in connection with dating [she laughs] I think he left that until quite late in life. He was too busy exploring and climbing mountains!
At what age did he enter the modelling world, what advice did you give him, and what did you think when he entered that industry?He started off with the modelling when he was very young – I think he was about 17 as he also did travelling. Then again, we gave him all the support that we could. It was a wonderful opportunity with all of the destinations that he was able to travel to. And of course anything Marc made financially, went straight into investing. Marc has been like that since he was about 12 years old. We gave him all the support we could because he's an individual and if that's his choice, we must support him.
What is Marc's best characteristic? Any pet peeves you can't stand?His best I would say is that he is true to himself and he has been like that all his life. If there is something Marc does not agree on that goes against his grain, he will stand his ground. That for me, is the most fantastic quality that he has.
He will tell you himself that something that irritates me is that Marc is so spontaneous. If he wants to do something – I think you know I've travelled with him – I've experienced travelling through the jungles of Thailand with Marc. He will just say to me"Okay, we're going to do this","Can't you do that?" and"Don't worry, I'm there to support you I will never let anything happen to you". He's just extremely spontaneous, and sometimes that does scare me a little bit.
Did you give him any advice beforeThe Bachelor SAstarted about women and the process of dating on TV?No, never, never. I've never interfered in any of Marc's relationships. I believe Marc knows exactly where he's going, he's an adult.Is there anything you're particularly proud of when it comes to your son?
The way he has turned out the way he has. Such an awesome, wonderful human being who I am very, very proud of.WATCH A TRAILER FOR THE EPISODE HERE:The Bachelor SA season 2 airs Thursdays at 19:00 on M-Net (DStv 101) Read more: Channel24 »
