5 Times Maureen Proved She’s More than Just a Pretty Face

By  - 7 years ago

“Pretty face, but no skill,” was the phrase we heard far too many times on Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 whenever other contestants doubted why Maureen Wroblewitz was even part of the competition. Yet, time and time again, the young Filipino-German model emerged from the show’s challenges and photoshoots strong and competitive, much to the surprise of the judges and her veteran counterparts. She really made the Philippines proud! Here are five moments that proved Maureen is indeed more than what meets the eye.


5.  When she showed that she’s still the same humble and grateful girl, despite the newfound fame.


4. When she’s never afraid or embarrassed to show her goofy and crazy side. Models are like the rest of us, too!

love these girls ❤ swipe to see how we actually are ? #OnlyLoveNoHate

3. When she didn’t mind the haters, and instead, focused on spreading positivity and improving her weaknesses during the competition. #OnlyLoveNoHate

#OnlyLoveNoHate ? Clara's perspective: when you see your crush talking to another girl so you try to join their conversation but you realize that you're just interrupting them and your crush isn't really interested in you ?? I'm sorry @clarasutantio ? I asked for permission though hahaha #AsNTM #AsNTM5 #TeamMaureen #TeamClara • Guys, please don't hate on the other girls for confronting me. It's their opinion and I'll choose to respect it, even if I may not agree to it. At the end of the day, it's still a competition. And like Tu said in her last post, sometimes we have to set our friendships aside, especially now that we're Top 6. Only one girl can win and we're all competing for that one spot. Now my job is to prove them wrong and that I do deserve to stay. I'm cool with all three of them outside of the competition and they're all amazing models so please don't hate. Always remember #OnlyLoveNoHate ?

2. When she won best performance of the week, not just once…

nor twice…

Top 5 ✨This week was certainly a really tough one for me but another week proven that I'm not just a 'pretty face'. Even if I won my second Best Performance this week, I still can't be fully happy. I feel like Tu when she was FCO and Layla had to leave the competition. First Valerie, now my other twin Veronika. Who will I now be telling my stories to? ?We used to be 3 girls sharing one bed and now I'm left alone. I'm missing the times we would watch movies together or the times we would cook for each other. At least you both are back together again @valerie.twns @veronika.twns ❤ I'll keep aiming for the top and I'll also be doing it for you two. I'm so lucky to have met both of you, my twinsies! Love and miss you both too much ❤ #AsNTM #AsNTM5 #ExpectTheUnexpected #TeamMaureen #TeamPhilippines #PhilippinesOnTop

3rd Best Performance and Top 4?! ? I'm so close to the finale, just one more step! • I've learned a lot about myself throughout this competition. But the most important thing I've learned, is that I never give up. I'll keep fighting no matter what and I'll be doing this for all of you ❤ I also wanted to thank you all for the amazing support! You all mean the world to me! So many people have been telling me how proud they are of me and you have no idea how much those words mean to me. I hope I inspire every single one of you to go out there and do what you want to do. Don't ever give up on your dreams because other people make it seem impossible! Anything is possible! You just gotta work hard always and never doubt yourself ❤❤❤ #AsNTM #AsNTM5 #TeamPhilippines #TeamMaureen #PhilippinesOnTop
