Presenting to you now the Miss South Africa 2020 Top Ten Finalists who will compete for the big national crown on October 24.
I am truly awed by the quality of these ladies. But for now, I am pinning my hopes on Melissa Nayimuli, Natasha Joubert, Jordan van der Vyver and Aphelele Mbiyo.
Aphelele Mbiyo and Busisiwe Mmotla
Chantelle Pretorius and Jordan van der Vyver
Lebogang Mahlangu and Karishma Ramdev
Melissa Nayimuli and Natasha Joubert
Shudufhadzo Musida and Thato Mosehle
You have seen their individual official photos. Now hear them speak about what their plans will be if given the bigger platform of becoming the next Miss South Africa. I have always believed that listening to their voices can give a whole new impression to their impact as potential winner. Sure, there may still be one or two who sound rehearsed. But overall, these ladies are showing their empowered spirits.
I am particularly leaning towards Aphelele Mbiyo, Melissa Nayimuli (loving her aura!) and Savannah Schutzler at this point.
Please share your thoughts after watching the video below.
When the organizers of Miss South Africa 2020 announced their 15 Semifinalists, I was literally blown away by the quality of the contenders. The ladies are like a cross between Miss Universe and America’s Next Top Model to the next level. I can pick my 5 favorites and still be left with another 5 strong contenders for the crown. Werner Wessels definitely has an eye – not just for beauty – but for aspirants who offer more than the looks and brains. I bet a lot of them offer more than dreams of winning the crown and achieving a rare back-to-back with Zozibini Tunzi, but also the mid-term and long-term plans to go beyond the glitz and glamour of becoming a Miss.
Their professions vary – from two Medical Doctors to a Food Scientist to an International Model to a Law Student to a PR Officer to an Actress to those who are in the Honours program of their respective University degrees and more.
