Maureen Wroblewitz has won “Asia’s Next Top Model”. The winner of season five of AsNTM was announced on Wednesday night, June 28.
The 19-year-old half-Filipina, half-German beauty might have been the youngest in the squad but she managed to beat Malaysia’s Shikin Gomez and Vietnam’s Minh Tu Nguyen in the Top 3.
Maureen is also the first Filipina contestant to win the popular model-search reality show competition.
The model won the most desirable contract with Storm Model Management in London and will also be on the cover of Nylon Singapore magazine. She will also be featured in other high-profile fashion campaigns.
Maureen conveyed how she needed to overcome her self-esteem issues, the bullying she received from the other contestants, and her relative innocence to become the Philippines’ first Top Model.
“There’s so much pressure. The Philippines has never won, so I really have to go out there, get out of my comfort zone, be confident and believe in myself. I can’t give up. I want to win this. I’m the last Filipina and I really have to fight.”
Well, now she can safely say that she’s shut down the haters and the doubters – as she is the latest Asia’s Next Top Model! Maureen said:
“I know how Filipinos are, and I’m really proud to be one!”
