Radio and television personality, Anele Mdoda, is set to host this year’s Miss South Africa finale pageant which takes place on Saturday, August 13.
Mdoda has been associated with Miss South Africa since 2013, five times as a judge and last year as a co-host alongside Survivor SA presenter Nick Panagio.
This year, Mdoda is hosting the show on her own, a role she doesn’t take lightly.
“I’m very excited that we are back to a full capacity arena, because a packed arena suits my energy levels and always motivates me to work just that little bit harder to ensure that everyone has a good time and really enjoys the evening.”
Mdoda’s advice to this year’s top 10 finalists is for them to have fun and “be in the moment.”
“They should not worry about what they think they look like or whether they answered a question correctly or if something happens to their hair or their dress when they’re on stage. No one cares. If they are having a good time everybody else is having a good time”, Mdoda adds.
After taking place in Cape Town for the past two years, Miss South Africa returns to Gauteng this year with the 2022 winner set to be crowned at Sun International’s flagship venue, the SunBet Arena at Time Square, Pretoria. The finale, which promises to be an entertainment-packed show, fittingly takes place during Women’s Month.
Miss South Africa 2022 will be broadcast live on Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161) and Mnet (DStv Channel 101) on Saturday, August 13 from 18h30 and streamed for an international audience on the Miss South Africa app.
Miss South Africa 2022 will take home a package of prizes and sponsorships worth more than R3 million. The Top 10 competing for the crown are: Anarzade Omar, Ayanda Thabethe, Itumeleng Parage, Keaoleboga Nkashe, Lebogang Mahlangu, Luvé Meyer, Luyanda Zuma, Ndavi Nokeri, Pearl Ntshehi and Tamsyn Jack.
