Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray will once again be part of the Miss South Africa pageant, this time as a pre-show event and backstage host.
“The Cat is out of the bag (pun intended)! This year’s show is bringing you great women! Not only local, but international too! We are thrilled to announce that this year’s pre-show host is the one and only Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray,” Miss South Africa posted on Instagram.
“She will be giving you a taste of the finale show as well as backstage access to all the behind-the-scenes content during the pre-show, as well as interviewing your newly crowned Miss SA 2021!”
The Filipina Miss Universe titleholder was also part of the event as one of the judges in 2019, the same year her fellow backstage host Zozibini Tunzi won in the local pageant. Later in the same year, Catriona passed the crown to Zozini, who was named Miss Universe 2019.
“Hey South Africa! I’m so so excited to be returning to your beautiful Rainbow Nation,” Catriona said.
Meanwhile, Zozibini called her participation in the pageant this year a “full circle moment” since she won in 2019, became a judge in 2020, and will be a host this 2021.
The Miss South Africa 2021 pageant will be held live at the Grand Arena in Cape Town on October 16, 2021.
