Ntandoyenkosi Kunene is definitely a surprise winner.  The mega-favourite Reabetswe failed to make the Top 5 cut.  Another favourite Schane also failed to crack the Top 5.  Tayla was the favourite once Top 5 was announced but she could only finish third.  Ntandoyenkosi was in no one’s list of Top 3 favorites to win.  Anyways, Miss South Africa pageant is often unpredictable.  Last year, Taryn, Chanel & Nicole were the favorites but only Nicole made it to the Top 5 and Liesl Laurie emerged as the winner.  Thankfully Liesl transformed very well and turned out to be a big favourite for Miss World 2015 title too.  Her charm, grace and polish in personality made her a star.  There is a lot of dismay among fans over the win of Ntandoyenkosi.  But who knows, may be Ntandoyenkosi Kunene  will also transform the way Liesl did?!?
