  Miss South Africa 2010: Bokang Montjane

The Miss South Africa 2010 pageant took place at Sun City's Superbowl last night (Sunday, 12 December) and was won by 24-year old model and entrepeneur Bokang Montjane.




The show was broadcast live on Mzansi Magic for the first time and was hosted by former Miss Universe Michelle McLean and current Idols host ProVerb.  Former Miss SA Tatum Keshwar hosted the Red Carpet in a half-hour pre-show build up ...

Little J from Gossip Girl? No, Miss SA Teen 2010 Mikaela Oosthuizen.

Khanyi Mbau couldn't keep her eyes open on the red carpet. Reason:  super-size lashes.

A skirt turned into a dress apparently.

Elana Afrika with her bo, who didn't utter a word.

The Booths. Who never spend a cent on "Do's".

The ceremony itself included performances by the Bala Brothers, oddball ballet dancer dudes (yes, the stockings pun was intentional) and Reality Bromance of the Year El'Loyd*, who should forget about solo careers and start a duo/group.

While the Bala Bros and El'Loyd were current, the music in between wasn't. Every bit of soundtrack and link-up music that was played to accompany the finalists was dated, bland and irrelevent unfortunately.

As for the Top 12,  they schmodelled in bikini's, designer-wear and ballgowns and spoke about how they plan to save the world.

Strong favourites among the audience during the show were 19-year old Natasha Kashimoto and 24-year old Dorah Mtetwa. Natasha was a Top 12 finalist in Miss SA Teen 2008 and Dorah was a Top 12 Miss SA finalist in the same year.

This year: Natasha made it into the pageant Top 5, while Dorah didn't.

Also in the Top 5 were Bianca Couthino (who won the Sandra Bullock award for Miss Congeniality), Careen Truter, Dhesha Jeram and Bokang.

The title of First Princess went to 23-year old Dhesha and 22-year old Bianca was named Second Princess.

Once they'd gotten over their shock moments of: "Damn, we can't believe we didn't win but can't show it," Bokang was named winner of the crown.

Born in Limpopo Province, Bokang now lives in Honeydew Ridge, Johannesburg and runs a modeling and confidence school in Auckland Park. She has various pageant titles under her belt but has never been a Miss South Africa finalist.

Bokang her own words:

"My favourite food is pap and morogo, pap and mopani worms. I love tripe too and shushi. A lot of carbs but I love it. I sudied Public Communications, Relations at the University of Johannesburg. I'm done, finally I graduated.

"For someone to have confidence and a high self-esteem it takes them to be extremely comfortable with who they are. Always have an attitude of: 'I'd rather stand out than blend in.'" If you make that your motive you'll never feel like you really, honestly need to fit in with anyone else. Just be yourself and love who you are."

Keep a lookout for front-row snaps and goss from the ceremony, comin' up in the week.

*Idols winner Elvis Blue and runner-up Lloyd Cele.

It seems like I did not miss much because everybody says the show was a whack.Those are some of the consequences of taking the event of such magnitude to some shady pay tv channel.Bring that show back to SABC then everything will be much better.....

Congratulations to Bokang!!!

mina if i had aspirations of being Miss SA, black as I am I will not enter for the next 2 years, cos next year the winner is surely going to be a coloured/indian chick and the following year a white chick, these gals can't they c this trend

Congrats to Bokang, i was routing for Natasha, she just gave a funny answer to that Top 5 question...

'I'd rather stand out than blend in.
I love this quote, I must start applying this more often in my daily life. I will then go places! Once again, well done to Bokang, the girl exudes confidence and one could tell this is her fort!

The pageant was plain boring.
I disagree, the show had some sort of class and was entertaining.
Llyod had red earings on, i thought i was seeing things!
Oj\h Tazteeq, I didn't notice. Gosh!
i missed you guys so bad. 
We missed you too. I was starting to wonder what happened to you lol.

The best and worst teacher question was hilarious to say the least and Ms Booth must just simply go to school so she can learn about the art of asking questions shem.

, i also disagree, the show kept to its coinsistency of class and serious glamour! A friend of mine thought they should have brought Sindi to perform and i was like, NAH, she was probably gonna ghettolise the whole show! Imagine the likes of Chomee on that stage with her skimpy items or should i say skanky outfits? Hell NO!

!A friend of mine thought they should have brought Sindi to perform and i was like, NAH, she was probably gonna ghettolise the whole show! 

True Tazteeq, the show was really good and even my 10 year old niece who sees a boring show from a mile, was happy with how everything went and she aspires to enter the pageant when she turns 18 lol. They really made great choices in terms of performances from artists. If Sindi can perform there, then next thing you will have, as you put it, Chomee with her skimpy outfits and Arthur performing lol.

@Spineli, are you show it was boring or is it because you wanted it to go township style? In your opinion, what would have made the show great? Please do share with us your suggestions on that regard!

Congrats to Bokang. 

I thought out of all the top 5 girls anyone could have taken it.

I felt that instead of playing the SA artist's songs in the background, they could have performed on stage. I'm very patriotic, so I also had a problem with the US music being played. What happened to local is lekker?

Why did they have 1 designer and the same dresses and colours?

For me personally a lot was missing.

Maki we're not saying we wanted Big Nuz and Tira(wouldnt mind though lol).it looked low budgetish in terms of entertainment acts and it did not look international std glam, too bland.it was very predictable,no extra outa da box entertainment elements were incorporated to keep us glued and forget bout pots in the kitchen.

ek-zakly Pru,the swimsuits killed it to start with,those bold summery colours could have been modernised a bit,the summer theme looked like a chreche outing to sun city.swimsuits could have been altered a bit to have sum interesting details.
Reply from: Cnglemother Monday, December 13, 2010 14:13 PM
Lavuvuzela and their burlesqueish performance?they didnt practice maan!shades not matching their nice sexy outfits.
Reply from: Spineli Monday, December 13, 2010 15:36 PM

@ Makisto...I can't remeber the last time I watched a beauty pageant. Maybe I was expecting a kind of awards ceremony where we have interesting artists/musicians.

Couldn't the orgarnisers have a co-host & a backstage presenter? (Not one person doing both).

I think it's different strokes for different folks. You enjoyed it & I didnt.
