Everyone, meet Maureen Wroblewitz, the last Filipina standing on Asia’s Next Top Model.
The youngest among Cycle 5’s bunch, Maureen is only 19 years old. She was discovered by a modelling agent through Instagram three years ago. After graduating from high school in Germany, she finally moved to the Philippines to pursue a modelling career.
In an interview with Preview.ph, the Fil-German beauty disclosed how nervous she was upon knowing that she’d be one of the country’s representatives for this year’s Asia’s Next Top Model.
“Before the show started, I was really nervous. I was scared and I actually expected not to stay that long. I told myself I was just gonna do this for experience, to come out of my comfort zone and be more confident,” Maureen says.
But so far, after weeks of gruelling tasks, the young model has proven that, despite feeling jittery, she stands a chance at bagging the coveted title. Out of the three contestants from the Philippines, Maureen has been the only one who made it this far. First to leave the competition was Angelica Santilla, while Jennica Sanchez got eliminated on the third week.
Now, she’s barely two episodes away from potentially winning the competition.
But honestly, even if she doesn’t win, this stunner has already won our hearts. And we believe she’ll have a bright career ahead of her here in the country. In anticipation of the season finale on June 28, we compiled Maureen’s best—and hottest—snaps, just because we need to show the world why this lady deserves the title (and your double-taps).
To professional shots from the show…
This woman knows how to slay!
Good luck, Maureen!
