Episode One: 26 January, 5.30 pm

Presenter Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp kicks off the show by catching up with former Miss South Africa title holders who discuss what it was like to win. The show takes a look at the Johannesburg and Cape Town regional finals where viewers get to meet the nervous entrants and hear how they feel about taking part in this prestigious pageant. There are also interviews with the three judges; radio and TV personality Anele Mdoda who returns for a second time as judge; international DJ and recording artist Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumelo, better known as Black Coffee and magazine editor Pnina Fenster. Black Coffee has since recused himself as a judge as he is related to one of the semi-finalists.

Episode Two: 2 February, 5.30 pm

Tension mounts as 33 become 12! The semifinalists attend a host of workshops and seminars before once again facing the judges. It’s heartbreak for some, elation for others as the contestants are whittled down to the top 12. The ecstatic finalists then head off to Miss South Africa boot camp!

Episode Three: 9 February, 5.30 pm

The top 12 get down to business with their first challenge, which involves a night shoot and negotiating their way through rain while dressed in all their finery. This exciting challenge takes place at Borite Primary School near Sun City, one of Sun International’s CSI projects, where the contestants have to teach a class about the insect world. They also have to greet the learners in five languages, instruct them in English and sing a school song with them. It’s a learning experience for all concerned – especially when one of the creepy crawlies decides to make a run for it!

Episode Four: 16 February, 5.30 pm

The competition heats up in the kitchens of Sun City. The 12 finalists are divided into two teams who compete at flipping pancakes (which cause a few flops) and making cupcakes. The food is then distributed to the Thari Mmelegi orphanage where the contestants spend an emotional afternoon bonding with the children, especially when one of them reads a poem he has written. Later they compete against one another at the Valley of the Waves in beach games and a hula hoop showdown.

Episode Five: 23 February, 5.30 pm

The finalists step it up in the iconic amphitheatre where they have to strut their stuff on a runway with a difference. The finalists show off their modelling skills in designer dresses as they walk the runaway in pouring rain. They are also shown some nifty dance moves by renowned choreographer Somizi Mhlongho – and later have to duplicate the dance in a video game challenge.

Episode Six: 2 March, 5.30 pm

Leotards and leg warmers are back as the ladies get schooled in retro fitness. They also have to watch their step as they take part in an epic fashion challenge. The top 12 are all enthusiastic about fitness and their prowess in this department is put to the test in this challenge. Fitness instructor Stacey Holland takes the girls through a series of routines that would make Jane Fonda proud.

Episode Seven: 9 March, 5.30 pm

This time round there’s a safari ride with a twist as well as a high fashion shoot with some very special guests. The top 12 know all about applying make-up in the quiet of a bedroom or studio. But can they do it without making a mess as they go on a bumpy game drive through the bush at Letsatsing Game Park? Another challenge involves having a picture taken while clad in a gorgeous designer gown and holding an exotic bird of prey.

Episode Eight, 16 March, 5.30 pm

The contestants head off to face their final challenge on the set of a Cell C commercial and have to demonstrate their skills on a golf course. The girls take a swing or two to try to get a ball out of a tricky situation and some show a definite knack for the game. In another challenge the contestants are tested on their ability to deliver lines like a true professional for a TV commercial for mobile service provider Cell C, who is the sponsor of the Miss South Africa pageant.
