Miss South Africa 2023: Meet the Top 12 finalists

From the Top 30, only 12 beauties will now move on to the finals of Miss South Africa 2023 this August

The Top 12 finalists vying for the title of Miss South Africa 2023 have been officially announced on Thursday, June 8 exclusively on the Miss South Africa app.

Former Miss South Africa Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala, award-winning fashion designer and stylist Nobukhosi Nkosi, and Miss South Africa Organisation's CEO Stephanie Weil were part of the selection panel.

According to the organizers, this year's competition boasts an impressive group of contestants consisting of a lawyer, a sport scientist, a pharmacist, and a four-time graduate who has degrees in psychology and medical sociology.

One of them will be crowned as the successor of last year's winner Ndavi Nokeri on Sunday, August 13 at Sun International’s flagship venue, the SunBet Arena at Time Square, Pretoria.

Presented by Weil Entertainment in association with Sun International, the final show promises to be a spectacular and entertainment-packed show and will fittingly take place during Women’s Month.

Crown Chasers, a reality series exclusively on the pageant's official app, showcases the finalists as they are placed in real-life Miss South Africa scenarios that include several challenges based on the four pillars – duty, championship, empowerment, and beauty.
