This is part of the reason why this competition has never been and most likely will never be taken seriously.— Uncle L (@DrQabaka) November 11, 2020
Do we even need a "Mr SA"? 😑😑 pic.twitter.com/AVIK9WY7Wv— Tiisetso Madubanya (@TheRealTiisetso) November 11, 2020
Everytime Mr SA trends I always think about that "Whomst are you" video 😂😂🤣— L (@LikhayaCK) November 11, 2020
So you want inclusivity in Miss SA but not Mr SA? How does that work?— Nkele (@MazinyoDotCom) November 12, 2020
Last year, Heinrich Gabler was crowned as the new Mr South Africa for 2019 at a glamorous event in Camps Bay, Cape Town.
“Gabler is a true inspiration, role model and ambassador. He knows the privileged of being loved and belonging to a family, and he knows loss, rejection and abandonment.
“He knows lack, and he knows abundance. “I don’t give because I have; I give because I know what it means not to have.” He carries a story of hope, one that encourages others to never give up on their dreams, to rise above their circumstances, to embrace community, stay humble and continuously look for opportunities to give back,” read a statement by Mr SA.
