Bryoni Govender to represent South Africa at Miss Universe 2023

Miss South Africa 2023 first runner-up Bryoni Natalie Govender has been confirmed to represent South Africa at the 72nd Miss Universe pageant.

The 26-year-old lawyer from Kempton Park in Gauteng came second to Miss South Africa 2023 winner Natasha Joubert at the national pageant held on Sunday in Pretoria.

Since Natasha has already joined Miss Universe 2020 and rules do not allow her to participate again, she is now expected to go to Miss Supranational 2024.

Following last night's competition, the new Miss Universe South Africa went to social media to share: "I am so incredibly proud of myself. Thank you South Africa for all your support and love."

Seven equally beautiful, intelligent, and empowered women battled it out for the Mohana crown during the star-studded 65th Miss South Africa final.

"My heart is still bursting with pride," Bryoni wrote in another post.

Miss Universe 2023 is scheduled to take place in El Salvador on November 18. Reigning Miss Universe R'Bonney Gabriel of the USA will crown her successor at the end of the event.
