Miss South Africa has announced the appointment of two new judges for the 2017 pageant.

TV personality Maps Maponyane and radio presenter Bridget Masinga will form part of the panel for the regional judging which takes place around South Africa during the next six weeks and will see the inclusion of various guest judges at the different venues.

Bridget Masinga, a Miss SA second-runner up presents and produces Jacaranda FM’s weekday mid-morning show, The Workzone with Bridget Masinga. Maps Maponyane is considered as one of SA’s most stylish and sexiest men and is an admired multi-talented TV presenter, model, actor, style icon, designer, businessman and philanthropist.

“I think my journey with Miss South Africa, which began in 2002 when I was second runner-up and then subsequently as one of the hosts on The Road to Miss South Africa, puts me in the perfect position to have intimate knowledge of the expectations versus the realities of the title," said Masinga.

The Miss South Africa pageant takes place at Sun City at the end of March. For the first time in the history of the pageant, the winner will receive R1-million in cash as well as a car, an international holiday and other prizes in a package that exceeds R2-million. The finalists for 2017 will each receive a R25 000 cash prize.
