Following previous Miss World pageants, South Africa always makes it to top 10 so it was no surprise that she maintained the standard.

When asked why would she like to become Miss World, Rolene replied that coming from SA, the country's unity and the forgiveness it's built on, she would be proud to represent an organization that is a beacon of hope to the world.
