6th Year medicine student at University of Cape Town, 23-year-old Tamaryn Green, was crowned Miss South Africa 2018, on Sunday, at the Sun Arena at Time Square in Pretoria.
Hosted by Bonang Matheba, one of the South Africa’s leading media personalities and style icon, the dazzling event attracted many luminaries. The 60th Diamond Jubilee event, which was televised live and simulcast on M-Net and Mzansi Magic, saw 12 of the country’s most beautiful and accomplished women compete to take the crown and follow in the footsteps of Miss South Africa 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who went onto be crowned Miss Universe, and her successor, Adè van Heerden.
The newly crowned Green will take home more than R3 million in a bouquet of prizes that makes the competition one of the richest pageants in the world. Miss South Africa will receive R1-million in cash from Cell C and Sun International, she’ll also receive prizes from sponsors – including a brand-new Nissan Qashqai and designer garments.
Green also walks away with the title of Miss Universe South Africa, and will compete in the Miss Universe pageant later this year.
