BRYONI GOVENDER REPRESENTS SA AT MISS SUPRANATIONAL

Beauty queen Bryoni Govender was the Miss SA 2023 runner up. She went on to represent South Africa at the Miss Universe pageant in November 2023. This was because reigning Miss SA Natasha Joubert decided to focus on Miss SA during her reign and opted not to compete in international pageants.

So, Bryoni is again representing South Africa, this time at the Miss Supranational pageant to be held in Poland on Saturday 6 July. Andrea Aguilera of Ecuador will crown her successor at the end of the event. Former Miss SA, Lalela Mswane, won the Miss Supranational pageant in 2022.

Lalela was the first Miss South Africa to be crowned Miss Supranational, and the first black woman to be crowned Miss Supranational. Lalela was also the first woman to wear the new Ricardo crown. The beauty queen was also the second runner up at the Miss Universe pageant in December 2021, which sparked controversy in South Africa.
