Twenty six young women have survived the national screenings to make it through to the next round of the Miss South Africa competition. Gauteng, once again, has the highest number of semi-finalist with a whopping 14 ladies from this region making it. The Western Cape has 6 girls, KwaZulu Natal has 3 and the Eastern Cape, Limpopo and Mpumalanga all got one semi-finalist. These young women will go through another round of competition before the top 12 are announced. The ladies who make it to this round will battle it out for the crown and R1 million in cash on March 25, 2017 at the Sun City Superbowl in South Africa's Northwest Province.

Let's meet the rest of the ladies from Gauteng:

From: Honeydew, Gauteng

Eye For Beauty: She's beautiful, all right, but is she strong enough to stand out among 26 of South Africa's most beautiful. Only time will tell.

Eye For Beauty: This is not Shane's first time entering the contest and I'm sure she'll use all the experience that she has gained so far to help her score points. 

Eye For Beauty 1st Impression: 6.3/10 


Eye For Beauty: She's got an interesting look, but just based on this shot, I'd say that she's not one of the strongest contestants this year. 

Eye For Beauty 1st Impression: 6.4/10 

From: Krugersdorp

Eye For Beauty: She's beautiful, but she looks short in this photo. Dare I say that she has the most beautiful eyes of them all. She has potential, but I need to see her in a group photo. 

Eye For Beauty 1st Impression: 7.6/10 

From: Dobsonville, Soweto

Eye For Beauty: I have loved Tshego since her first stint in 2014 and I want her to do really well this year. Rooting for a top 3 spot for her. As the reigning Miss Mamelodi Sundowns, she'll know what it takes to be an ambassador and she'll use it to her advantage. 

Eye For Beauty 1st impression: 9.4/10 

From: Kameeldrift, Pretoria

Eye For Beauty: There's no denying that she's absolutely stunning, but this is a strong group. I think she will just get better as time goes on, so I hope she makes it. 

Eye For Beauty 1st Impression 8.8/10 

From: Randparkridge, Gauteng

Eye For Beauty: I believe she has some pageant experience under her belt and I definitely think she's strong enough to make it to the top 12. It will be a matter of excellent preparation and luck in equal measures. 

Eye For Beauty 1st impression: 8.0/10

3. Kayla 
4. Lou-Marie

May the best and most deserving candidate win the Miss SA 2017 title. ***
