Ex Miss SA Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala As A Judge to pick 2021 top 30

Former Miss South Africa Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala is back as the Miss SA 2021 judge.

The road to finding Miss South Africa 2021 has commenced and former winners have never been ready to select the top 30.

Now that the Miss South Africa entries are closed, the job is left with the judges to pick thirty (30) women who will be able to proceed to the next round.

The former winners Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala took the title in 2010, Melinda Bam took the title the following year 2011, in 2015 in was conquered by Liesl Laurie and Tamaryn Green took it in 2018. Therefore, these ladies have assembled to review entry forms and videos before the reveal of the top 30 on Tuesday, July 6.

One of the former titleholder Melinda Bam, will be joining the Miss South Africa’s judging panel for the first time, and is looking for someone who is knows of the social and global issues that this generation is facing.

“I am also looking for someone direct, yet diplomatic, who can navigate these issues with superior emotional intelligence and can speak to corporate South Africa while also being a familiar and comforting face to our communities,” Melinda explained.

Liesl Laurie, from Johannesburg south, stimulated the contestants to however, be themselves if they wanted to stand out.

She said What served her well, when she entered the Miss South Africa competition, was to be fiercely authentic and she was herself.

She further said she knew that she had to shine as Liesl Laurie in 2015. And that there was no other way but to walk away with the title, if she had to outdo Tatum Keshwar, Rolene Strauss, Melinda Bam or all those amazing women who came before her.

Liesl also stated that she had to remain factual to the township she was from, and she embrace it. She said she was a true meaning of a Cinderella story, and she proudly owned it.

Stephanie Weil, the chief executive of the Miss South Africa Organisation is confident in the judging panel she selected.

“Who is more than better to pick the Top 30 than former winners themselves who have once walked in the shoes of this year’s contestants and who will be able to bring out the best in each candidate while giving pertinent advice. They know what qualities a potential Miss South Africa needs to possess to represent this country on international stages," she said.
