Pageantry

Strauss won her first title at age 15, when she won the Elite Model Look South Africa competition in 2007. Strauss later placed in the top 5 of Miss South Africa 2011, where Melinda Bam became the winner.[8] She returned three years later to compete, representing Bloemfontein and was crowned Miss South Africa 2014.

As Miss South Africa 2014, Strauss was expected to compete at both Miss Universe 2014 and Miss World 2014. Strauss competed in the Miss World 2014 contest in London, United Kingdom and was crowned Miss World 2014. Because of this, she could not compete at Miss Universe 2014. Ziphozakhe Zokufa, her first runner-up, stepped in as Miss South Africa 2014 and represented the country at the Miss Universe 2014 competition.
