Take a trip down memory lane as we revisit the Miss South Africa semi-finalists from 2015 to 2019.

On Wednesday, reigning Miss South Africa, Sasha-Lee Olivier introduced this year's top 15 during a live reveal on Instagram. 

Now that the semi-finalists have been announced, in a Miss South Africa first - the public is encouraged to vote for their favourite. Together with the four judges, the public vote will determine who will make up the top 10 and compete in the finale which moves to later in 2020.

While some years saw a top 12, and others a top 16 semi-finalist group, one thing is sure, these ladies can relate to the nerves this year's top 15 might be experiencing.
