The new Miss SA will be crowned during the pageant’s dazzling finale at the GrandWest Casino in Cape Town on Saturday.

The 10 finalists in the running for the coveted title are Bianca Bezuidenhout, Catherine Groenewald, Cheneil Hartzenberg, Jeanni Mulder, Kaylan Matthews, Kgothatso Dithebe, Lalela Mswane, Moratwe Masima, Tiffany Francis and Zimi Mabunzi.

We asked our readers to pretend to pull up a chair at the judge’s table and tell us which of these women would get their vote.

Of the more than 450 people who took our poll, the majority (44.71%) chose Mabunzi, a 26-year-old law student from the Eastern Cape.

This reflects the outcome of a public vote that saw South Africans have a say in which of the top 30 finalists would make it into the top 10. Mabunzi was the favourite of most fans.

Dithebe took second place in our poll with 17.4% of the vote. She is also a law student and owns a company that works in construction.

It will be a case of second time lucky if Dithebe wins. She was among the top five in the 2019 pageant.
