Filling in the Blanks – with Miss Zag contestant, Letitia de Jong

In our quest to get to know some of the over 60 lovely contestants who’ve signed up in the hopes of being crowned SA’s Ultimate Beach Babe, we’ve once again asked them to ‘Fill in the Blanks’.

This week’s Miss Zag hopeful is Letitia de Jong – who’d much rather get her heart racing with a high-speed sprint in a sports car than spend her day’s working the 9-to-5, and while Zag can’t promise the sports car – for the winner of Miss Zag we do offer an all-expenses paid trip for two to Mauritius, a quiver of new surfboards, a stack of prizes from sponsors Rip Curl and Reef Brazil, plus lots more…

In the meantime, let’s meet Letitia:


Hi my name is Letitia de Jongh, but you can call me Tisha, Tish or just “T”!

To make a living I do procurement for a Agricultural company (I love my job), and because I sit in a office all day I do modelling part time to make my life more exciting. Although, I’d rather just be a famous race car driver (my ultimate dream).

The funniest thing I ever saw was my mom’s first time on a scooter. She freaked out and gave more gas instead of brakes, did a “wheelie” and went straight into a tree! Thankfully she wasn’t hurt and I can laugh about it every time I think about it!

My favourite item of clothing is a sexy pair of tight jeans, but I would swap them any day for a bikini and sandals.

The last time I went to the gym I saw a guy on the treadmill with a gas mask and black refuse bag on. I laughed a little too hard and as he turned his head to look at me he tripped and went flying off the treadmill. It was so funny, but I did feel a bit bad, though.

Out of all my friends my cousin Chantelle is the only one who has the ability to make me act like I’m 12 again, and we laugh until the tears are rolling.


If I’m not at home or work, then you can catch me at the gym.

I’d love to one day skydive, but you’d never catch me shark cage diving!

If I had three wishes – I’d wish for; success in everything I do; to have the looks and health of a 23 year-old; and to have the knowledge of a 70 year-old.

I secretly have a crush on Ian Somerhalder (Damon from Vampire Diaries), even though I believe my boyfriend is my true soulmate.

I have a pet spider called “Eeeeeck!!” – cause that’s what I yell every time I see him (my boyfriend still has to hunt him down) 😉

My most embarrassing moment was at a friends wedding – I never noticed the toilet paper that had attached itself to my heel. I entered the room while the groom was busy with his speech and he just started laughing and drew all the attention to me. I laughed and took my seat, but I could feel I was turning red like a tomato.

My ultimate dream is to travel the world as an international model, but if that doesn’t work out I’ll stay here in Cape Town and make the best of what I’ve got! 🙂
