Miss South Africa 2017, the 59th edition of the Miss South Africa Pageant was held on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at the Sun City Superbowl. It was simulcast as a live broadcast on M-Net and Mzansi Magic.[1][2] Twenty six semi-finalists from different provinces were elected from over nine hundred women who entered, but only 12 finalists competed for the crown. Demi Leigh Nel-Peters emerged victorious and was named as Miss SA 2017 at the conclusion of the 2 hour event. Demi-Leigh represented South Africa at Miss Universe 2017 and was crowned as the new Miss Universe[3]. Her 1st princess Adè van Heerden competed at Miss World 2017, finishing in Top 10.
