Johannesburg – It's been quite a busy week for Zozibini Tunzi at the Miss Universe competition. 

The reigning Miss SA jetted off to Atlanta a week ago where she met up with contestants from all around the world who will compete for the title of Miss Universe 2019, and here's what she's been up to so far.


Contestants from all around the world arrived in Atlanta two weeks prior to pageant night to make sure that they are prepped and ready for the Miss Universe stage.

Aside from taking part in numerous rehearsals and fittings, participants also had the chance to strike a pose for some photos.

On the Miss Universe Instagram page, one of Zozibini's gorgeous photoshoots was shared with fans. 

The beauty queen also took us behind-the-scenes of another shoot on her own Instagram page, captioning her post: "SOFT X STRONG X ME". 


"My roommate is finally here and she has now officially become my personal photographer/videographer," Zozibini joked when she shared a post about meeting her Miss Universe roommate, Olutosin Itohan Araromi from Nigeria. 


The contestants are now readying themselves for the popular costume competition which is happening on Friday 6 December. This is where Zozibini will have the chance to show off her "wave of love" costume that she revealed to South Africans just days before leaving for Atlanta. 

The 2019 Miss Universe pageant takes place on 8 December in Atlanta, Georgia. 

South Africans can tune in live on Monday 9 December at 02:00 on 1 Magic (DStv 103).
