The pressure is on as the journey to find Ndavi Nokeri’s successor continues.
On Wednesday night, the Miss South Africa organisation announced the top 30 for this year’s competition.
Being part of the top 30 means that all these ladies must fight for their spot to make it to the finals, and only 10 of them will get through.
Gauteng is leading the pack with nine contestants, followed by the Western Cape with five. KwaZulu-Natal has four, Eastern Cape and North West have three contestants, the Northern Cape and Limpopo each have two, while Mpumalanga and Free State have one.
