These Top 12 Miss SA finalists will be competing for the crown in less than two months!

Less than two months to go until our next Miss South Africa is crowned!

After months of preparation, workshops, events and meet and greets, Liesl Laurie took to the stage at the Room 5 venue in Rivonia where she announced the 12 finalists who will proceed to compete for the final crown at the Sun City Superbowl on 26 March this year.

This marked the first time members of the public were allowed to vote for their favourite semi-finalist in the pageant and propel her into the Top 12. Congrats to Pretoria’s Nicole van Niekerk on scooping the public's choice!

Here are the finalists who will be vying for the crown as your next Miss SA!
