S3 Announces Return of Miss South Africa Pageant with Exciting New Season of Crown Chasers

S3 is thrilled to announce the return of the prestigious Miss South Africa pageant, set to broadcast live on August 10, 2024, at 20:00, with a red carpet pre-show starting at 19:30.

In the lead-up to the main event, viewers will be treated to the second season of Crown Chasers, a reality show that places Miss South Africa contestants in real-life scenarios. Crown Chasers will premiere on June 29, 2024, at 20:30, hosted by the reigning Miss South Africa, Natasha Joubert.

Natasha Joubert expressed her excitement about hosting the show: “I am delighted that my first opportunity to host a television show is with Crown Chasers. I have always wanted to step into the hosting and presenting space – one day I would love to be a sports presenter – so my goal has always been to get experience in the television field. Although hosting has not always been easy and has been challenging at times, I am growing more confident as filming progresses, and I am becoming more comfortable. This is something I am going to pursue after my reign ends in August.”

Crown Chasers will challenge contestants through weekly tasks based on the four pillars of Miss South Africa: duty, championship, empowerment, and beauty. Each episode will conclude with the judges voting off one contestant, leading to a thrilling grand finale at the SunBet Arena at Time Square in Pretoria.

Returning as a resident judge is Leandie Du Randt, joined by media personality Lerato Kganyago and a celebrity guest judge each week. Du Randt expressed her enthusiasm: “It is such an honour. I love this reality show because it gives those taking part the opportunity to see what will be expected of them if they are crowned Miss South Africa. The challenges and tests they will go through during the show is a true test of what will be expected of them.”

Kganyago, new to the judging panel, shared her excitement: “It feels amazing and surreal to be a resident judge for Crown Chasers. It is like coming full circle for me, having taken part in pageants myself. Being part of a show that celebrates and empowers women is something I hold very close to my heart. I’m thrilled and humbled to help guide these incredible contestants on their journey. I hope to positively contribute to the show with my experience as someone who's been in their shoes. I understand the pressures and the dreams these women have. I will offer support, honest feedback and a lot of heart. My goal is to help the contestants to find their true potential and shine as their authentic selves.”

S3 Channel Head Sane Zondi commented on the show's success and future aspirations: "Last year, S3 introduced Crown Chasers, a lead into the Miss South Africa pageant to the channel offering, which saw the channel reaching the 1 million viewers mark, a commendable achievement. We look forward to better achievements this year and have a few surprises in store for the S3 audiences with the new season. S3 wishes all the Miss SA hopefuls good luck with their journey, and cannot wait to see who reaches the finals."

Tune in to Crown Chasers on Saturdays at 20:30, and don’t miss the live broadcast of Miss South Africa 2024 on August 10, starting with the Red Carpet at 19:30.
