Zozi thinks guests should watch the series to know what the process of choosing the next Miss SA is really like.

“Hosting a TV series for the first time has been a beautiful experience. It came as second nature to me because the show is about a world with which I am very familiar. What made it even more fulfilling was being a part of helping build it from the start, and every step of the way, from an executive producing perspective,” she said according to a press statement.

“I think that everyone should watch Crown Chasers because I imagine that every year people wonder what the process of choosing a Miss South Africa is like and now they will finally have a full picture,” she continued.
