Anneline Kriel is a South African model and actress. She became 1974's Miss World at age 19, representing South Africa, after UK's Helen Morgan had resigned only four days after her victory. She became the second woman from her country to hold the title. The pageant was held in London, United Kingdom. Thereafter she became an ambassador for several beauty brands, completing public relations activities.

She has also starred in several Afrikaner soap operas[1] and the international hit-film, Kill and Kill Again which debuted at no.2 at the US Box Office.[2]

Career[edit]

Kriel was only 19 years old when she became Miss World in 1974, this marked a tumultuous period in South Africa's history, as the international boycott of South Africa continued to take pace. As a result, Kriel sometimes caught the ire of international media that depicted her as a face of the apartheid state. In support of the boycott, the US and Australia refused to accept her as part of the obligatory world tour of a Miss World. Singer Shirley Bassey also protested against her crowning. However, the US later relented and Kriel made television appearances there. In South Africa, her crowning received a rapturous response from the public and local media.[3]

In 1981 she released the pop single, 'He Took Off My Romeos'[4][5]

Personal life[edit]

Kriel was born and brought up in the mining town of Witbank, the daughter of a prison officer.[3]

In March 1976, Kriel was embroiled in a scandal over nude photographs that were leaked and appeared in the media and on the front page of the Sunday Times. Roy Hilligenn, Mr. America of 1951 took the photographs and sold them to a British newspaper for R100 000. The photos revealed Kriel on vacation sunbathing nude and the nudism of those around her such as her boyfriend, Richard Loring and Hilligenn and his family.[6]

She married the entertainment and casino magnate, Sol Kerzner in 1980 before divorcing five years later.[7] She converted to Judaism in Switzerland and married the millionaire horsebreeder, the late Phil Tucker at his family's Israel mansion in 1989.[8] They also had two daughters together, Tayla and Whitney. Kriel filed for divorce in 1994[9] and in 2000 was locked in a custody battle with Tucker.[10] Kriel later married Peter Bacon, a CEO and former protégé of Kerzner.[11] In 1997, Kriel and Kerzner sought an interdict against Jonathan Ball Publishers Ltd. and Allan Breenblo over Breenblo's Kerzner Unauthorised, an unauthorised biography of Kerzner. They claimed that the content would infringe on their reputations.[12] In 2007, Kriel, a Goldin family friend, attended the murder trials of actor Brett Goldin and fashion designer, Richard Bloom.[13]

As a student, she lived in Huis Asterhof, Vergeet-my-nie back then, whilst studying drama at the University of Pretoria. Kriel has also made efforts to learn French.[14]
