    Good looking woman...then again, I guess you would have to be to win Miss SA. Or maybe not sometimes...Congrats to Miss Bam though.

      I have been following her progress on the run up to Miss South africa every week. She is a georgeous girl and has a good head on her shoulders. She has a perfect body and has a presence that is alluring and captivating. She is also very elegant and feminine and perfect role model to aspiring young girls. To all the negative people This pic does not give her justice so google her and take a look at her properly

  • colin.dovey - 2011-12-12 08:52

    Nice looking blonde....but what about that just as lovely dark-haired beauty directly behind her? In the end, is not beauty really in the eye of the beholder? Good luck to her though!

  • Melissa - 2011-12-12 09:02

      Sally - 2012-01-29 21:13

  • Clarissa - 2011-12-12 12:59

    She looks older than 22? Maybe the make-up? Anywhoo! Someone has to represent SA! Goodluck girl!

      Sally - 2012-01-29 21:22

  • paulwhoughton - 2011-12-12 13:08

      Sally - 2012-01-29 21:26

    why don't they publish a pic of all the miss sa's without make-up and one with make-up. i am sure the true beauty's will appear.

      Sally - 2012-01-29 21:30

      That's why Melissa won, because she is beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. Just wait and watch!
