This year's Miss South Africa pageant will be showcased in a two-hour live broadcast on M-Net and Mzansi Magic from Carnival City.
Mzansi and Vuzu featured inserts and interviews with the Top 12 finalists in the weeks leading up to the final event.
The venue moved this year from Sun City to Carnival City as the Entertainment Centre at Sun City, the traditional home of the Miss South Africa pageant, was closed for refurbishments.
The 12 women in competition to be named Miss South Africa 2015 Liesl Laurie's successor are:
Elizabeth Molapo (Bloemfontein, Free State)
