Miss South Africa organization has made a few exciting additions to the 2023 edition which will include a groundbreaking seven-part reality TV series. There will be several rule changes which will allow married women and those with children to take part in the national competition for the first time and the age limit has also been modified.

Last year, the organization introduced Crown Chasers, a behind-the-scenes look at the build-up to the 2022 finale on the official Miss South Africa app. This year, Crown Chasers has been developed into a reality show showing the Miss South Africa competition as it has never been shown before.



The reality show will include several challenges based on the four pillars of Miss South Africa – duty, championship, empowerment and beauty. All the finalists will move into Miss South Africa HQ from where they will be given tasks that will test their abilities and train them to become the national winner. A challenge winner will be selected each week by a judging panel.

The change in rules and requirements have also been introduced this year; Married women and those with children will be allowed to enter for the first time. The age of entrants has also been changed as the contestant must be at least 20 years old and must be under 30 years of age as of August 13, 2023. This means that an applicant can turn 30 within their year of reign (starting August 2023). There are also no height or weight specifications or requirements.
