This year, the annual Miss South Africa pageant has made a number of changes in the hopes of re-captivating the South African audience who, over the years seem to have lost interest in the pageant.
The rumours are true, we are shaking things up for Miss South Africa this year. Take a look at the exciting changes we've made for #MissSA2018.— Miss South Africa (@Official_MissSA) May 4, 2018

Following their announcement of this year's contestants, and new host in the form of Bonang Matheba, the official Miss SA account tweeted and then deleted an announcement of this year's judging panel:
"South Africa, please meet your #MissSA2018 judging panel! Media queen @Anele returns, joined by author @khayadlanga; media mogul @KhanyiDhlomo; entrepreneur @Janez_Vermeiren; magazine editor @Michellevbreda; celebrity chef @SibaMtongana & Miss World 2014, Dr @RoleneStrauss"
Now we're not sure if the aforementioned faces will be returning but we think that's a pretty balanced judging mix. What are your thoughts?
The Miss SA finale is set to go down this coming Sunday.
