Tell us a bit about you:

I'm a 28 year old male who's been single for the past year or so? I am not the easiest person to get along with, which I blame entirely on being Pisces. Despite my career choice, I am quite the introvert, I don't look for attention or willing seek to meet new people, I'm very much to myself. I spend a lot of time with family, I love finding new "good food" spots across the country, I'm a sucker for good energy, and spending time outdoors.

“Young lady who is passionate about her life and career. I absolutely love adventure and my job allows me the opportunity to experience this in different parts of the world. As much as im grateful for the small things in life. I haven't been the luckiest when it came to love.

I came to a point of thinking L.O.V.E never existed or its for certain individuals which my name was never put on the list from the beginning of the universe. I am hoping The Longest date might change my perspective on this.”

Lana in her own words:

“Corporate slave turned Stunt Performer. After my divorce in 2013 I decided to give up my job in Advertising & follow my dream of being a Stunt Performer. Along the way, fitness & healthy living became my life & I am constantly training, setting goals and learning new ways in which to push my body - from Crossfit to Yoga. Surfing to Mixed Martial Arts - I'm always trying new things & being amazed at what the body can actually achieve. I love helping people of all ages and walks of life reach their full potential & follow what makes them happy, smashing goals along the way of cors. My life revolves around 2 mottos; ‘Anything is Possible’ & ‘Dreams become Reality’. Winner of Ms Figure & runner up in Miss Bikini at Fitness America 2017 in Las Vegas, I want people to realize that it's never too late to make a change & there's no such thing as a dream too big. If you can dream it, you can achieve it!”

My love and passion for travel, adventure and partying has taken me to places like Tromso in Norway to see the northern lights, Pamplona where I ran with the bulls (craziest thing i've done), and of course the crazy music festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Ibiza and the list goes on, where I have met incredible people along the way (Spanish girls for the win!). I am the "single" guy in my group of friends, known as the guy often with a new girl. I quite enjoy Cape Town because it is where a lot of the models live, so its a win win kind of situation.
