We have all shared, reposted, liked, and commented on our friends', daughters', sisters' Miss SA 2021 entry videos on different social media platforms. As we await the results of which of us will rejoice the first victory of this journey - the Top 30 - these former Miss SA pageant winners select the candidates fitting for those 30 spots. 

Among the judges on this panel is the newly-engaged radio presenter and Miss South Africa 2015, Liesl Laurie. She returns to the judging panel having done so the previous year as well.

"What served me very well, when I entered the Miss South Africa competition, was to be fiercely authentic and to be myself, as cliché as that may sound," she shares with all the ladies with hopes of being crowned.

A lot of changes are being implemented in the pageant as trans women have also been given the green light to enter the competition.

Joining the two beautiful judges is Tamaryn Green, Miss SA 2015, who makes her debut as a judge in the Miss SA pageant.

One of the winners who also brought a certain change in the pageant's 'conventional beauty queen' look was Melinda Bam, Miss SA 2011. She was not the 'ideal' height that most of her contenders were and defied that 'beauty standard'. She will join the panel of judges for the Top 30 as well.

“Who better to pick the Top 30 than former title holders who have walked in the shoes of this year’s entrants and who will be able to bring out the best in each candidate while giving pertinent advice," chief executive of the Miss South Africa Organisation, Stephanie Weil, shared. 

She shared her complete confidence in the panel they chose. We concur! 

Good luck to all the entrants of the competition and keep an eye on the Miss South Africa website on 6 July 2021.
