Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi are all set to share a stage together as they have been invited as the backstage presenters at the finale of Miss South Africa 2021.

Miss South Africa organization took to their official social media as they wrote, “Just when you thought the Miss SA 2021 Finale show couldn’t get any better… It just did! We have not one but TWO Former Miss Universes joining us this year! She is no stranger to the Miss SA family. South Africa’s jewel and the phenomenal woman who empowered us to TAKE UP SPACE! @zozitunzi is back again this year and she will be joining @catriona_gray backstage to give you all behind the scenes content during the show!”



This will not be Catriona's first visit to South Africa as she was part of the Miss South Africa 2019 judging panel when the title went to Zozibini. Tunzi then went on to inherit Catriona's Miss Universe crown a few months later.

Zozibini also shared her excitement as she said, “It's such a full-circle moment for me because I started on the stage as a contestant, to being a judge and now to backstage hosting. I will have touched and experienced every aspect of the show. That, to me is very special. I love Catriona. Not only did she crown me for Miss Universe, but she was there for the beginning of my journey as she was a judge for Miss SA 2019 when I won. There's a special connection there, and I can't wait to share the platform with her."



Miss South Africa 2021 will be crowned 16th October 2021 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest in Cape Town. The event will be screened live from 5 PM on M-Net and Mzansi Magic and will also be streamed online for an international audience on MissSA.live with extra highlights and exclusive content.
