Miss Universe South Africa Natasha Joubert and reigning Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi reunited in Hollywood, Florida, ahead of the 69th edition of the Miss Universe, which will take place on Sunday. 

Natasha arrived in Hollywood last week, where she has been taking part in a series of Miss Universe activities as she prepares to secure a back-to-back win for South Africa. 

If she is crowned Miss Universe, it will be the second back-to-win in the pageant's history.

Sharing a photo with Zozibini on Instagram, Natasha wrote: "I'm forever in awe and humbled by this opportunity! Zozi, just seeing you felt like home!"

The Miss Universe pageant takes place on 16 May in the US (02:00 to 05:00 on 17 May SA time). The show will be broadcast live on 1 Magic (DStv Channel 103) and replayed in prime time (details to be announced later).

It will be the 69th edition of the Miss Universe competition and will be held at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Hollywood, Florida, in the US.
