After Amanda Obdam’s outstanding stint at Miss Universe 2020 where she placed in the Top 10, Miss Universe Thailand organization is all set to begin its search to crown a new representative who will represent Thailand at Miss Universe 2021.

While a list of delegates who could be joining the pageant this year is being prepared by the pageant fanatics, there is one name that has topped almost all of them. Tharina Botes, the South African-Thai beauty, is eyeing the national crown this year and if she wins, she will surely put Thailand on a top placement yet again at the 70th edition of Miss Universe.



Tharina Botes, standing 180 cm tall, is simply gorgeous. She holds a bachelor’s in commerce degree in Economics. A self-proclaimed island girl, Tharina looks almost prepared for the national pageant if she gets in.

Tharina has a long list of accomplishments when it comes to pageantry; she was awarded the title of Miss International South Africa 2016 and represented her country at Miss International 2016. Unfortunately, she failed to place in the Top 15. In 2018, Tharina competed at the Miss South Africa pageant where she placed in the Top 12. In 2019, Tharina was crowned Miss Grand Phuket 2019 and represented Phuket at Miss Grand Thailand 2019 where she placed in the Top 10.
