The reason there is no second and third place at this year's Miss SA

The top three will represent South Africa at the world's three most prestigious pageants - Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss Supranational.

A post shared by Miss South Africa (@official_misssa)In previous years, during the live show, the host would first announce the second runner-up, followed by the winner. This year, the host only announced the winner. Stephanie said about the organisation's decision:"The organisation in the last few years has really focused on changing things up. For me, it's not really about placements. Ten are incredibly empowered young women. Three get to represent us internationally. And one wears the crown. But the other two deserve the same journey without placement - making them higher or lower than the other.

"For me, regardless of the result. These three are the ambassadors for the country, and they each have to do that. To put a second or first place to it, I don't feel is the correct way to potentially go forward." "But for now, I really like the idea that everybody is on equal footing. And we try to give every single young woman, regardless of their position, such an incredible journey," she went on to say.
