The top ten Miss Tuks Varsity Cup contestants went through an intense final judging round held at the TuksRugby clubhouse last Thursday.
The contestants were judged in the following categories:
• Tuks knowledge
• Varsity Cup knowledge
• Show and tell
The contestants were each asked a series of personal questions as well as a series of questions about the university. They were also required to have an extensive knowledge about the Varsity Cup competition. Each contestant had to bring along a shoe which had a story or experience behind it to share with the judges, which was part of the show and tell category. The shoes ranged from slippers that had been worn to hike up a mountain to boots that were used to drink beer out of. The ladies then had to pose on the spot for a fun and spontaneous photograph with the Tuks flag.
The judges were looking for contestants with personality, flair and a love of sport, particularly rugby.
The judges gave each contestant a score to determine the winner. The winner of Miss Tuks Varsity Cup will be announced at the Tuks rugby match on 4 March. She will go on to enter the national Miss Varsity Cup competition.
