Throughout the upcoming episodes, the contestants will be eliminated one by one after a series of tasks until the final three are left who will ultimately get a presenting contract with the SABC for one of the three shows.

He is fluent in French and enjoys spending time outdoors. “I’m Grateful to God and I feel so blessed to be in the Top 10. It’s an honour to know that the judges see something great in me – something great enough to give me the opportunity to be a potential SABC 3 presenter & ambassador,” Harmony shares. “With all that said, I’m really looking forward to the master classes & going through challenges that will better my craft and improve the gifts and talents that I’ve been blessed with.”

Peelo is passionate about education and in her spare time enjoys reading and cooking. “My initial reaction to having made it to the Top10 was that of pure joy and relief. With that said this feeling was also very short lived because now it means that the real work begins. Whatever brought me to the Top 10 needs to be the reason I am crowned the winner,” Peelo says. “What I am looking forward to the most about being on the show is meeting all the incredible people that will assist in elevating my career as well as constantly being challenged which will force me to really refine my presenting skills.”

I grew up being exposed to two very different worlds: That of the fortunate and less fortunate. I want to assist in bringing those worlds together. I believe this can be done by providing equal education to all. Actions speak louder than words! I want to be a voice to those who cannot be heard, a servant and role model to South Africans and to the people of the world at large.

Importantly, as Miss SA I want to inspire and empower women to be the best version of themselves. I want to show them that we have a voice and it can be heard, seen and valued! As a woman I believe there is a golden thread linking all women across the globe. Together we should be able to uplift, inspire, nurture and educate the youth of our world.”
