The Miss South Africa top 15 semi-finalists have been announced.

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

Now that the semi-finalists have been announced, the public is encouraged to vote for their favourite, who will make up the top 10 and compete in the finale which moves to later in 2020.

The top 10 will be announced at the end of July.

During the live broadcast, we learned more about the contestants, as Sasha-Lee introduced the ladies to the country and asked them about their interests, and how they've been keeping during the national lockdown.  

Despite some minor technical difficulties, each lady had their time in the limelight as South Africans congratulated them and wished them well on their journey ahead.  

In addition to the new interactive format, it was recently announced that, for the first time in the history of the Miss South Africa pageant, the top three finalists will represent the country at the world's three most prestigious pageants.

Previously, the Miss South Africa Organisation has sent a representative to both Miss Universe and Miss World, but will also now be fielding a candidate to Miss Supranational.
