While many were happy about Maureen Wroblewitz’s unexpected win in the latest cycle of Asia’s Next Top Model, some were also dismayed about the results when the Philippines’ bet bested Malaysia’s Shikin Gomez and Vietnam’s Minh Tu Nguyen. The show’s host Cindy Bishop took to Instagram to address the issue.

“I will not be saying any more on this, except this…The rules of modeling have changed drastically. We are seeing norms and stereotypes being challenged every day.


“Body positivity being celebrated in all its forms (including height) and an entirely new arena of opportunity for models everywhere. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but let’s please be respectful of each other, of all the judges who took their jobs very seriously and debated together at length to finally come to a decision, and finally of these three amazing ladies who should be extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished both on and off the show,” Cindy said in her post.

 

 

As expected, everyone is going crazy over the results of Asia's Next Top Model. #asntm5 @mauwrob fans are giddy with joy and pride, as well they should be. You brought home the crown 👑 I will not being saying any more on this, except this... The rules of modeling have changed drastically. We are seeing norms and stereotypes being challenged everyday, Body Positivity being celebrated in all its forms (including height) and an entire new arena of opportunity for models everywhere. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but let's please be respectful of each other, of all the judges who took their jobs very seriously and debated together at length to finally come to a decision, and finally of these three amazing ladies who should be extremely proud of what they've accomplished both on and off the show. @shikingomez, you were such a joy to work with, professional to the utmost and always giving 💯 You have a unstoppable drive to be the best and I can't wait to see what you will be blowing us away with next. Malaysia is lucky to have you as their queen. Thank you for being you ❤️ @minhtu_nguyen you really rocked this competition from the very first day and made Vietnam so proud. You were a true friend and big sis to many of the girls and so many people look up to you for that. And the fact that you are now the mentor of your own show is a testament to what a top model and inspiration you already are. Congratulations! To all the fans across Asia, thank you for watching and for all your passion. Thank you to my fellow judges @caragmcilroy @yutsai88 and all the other guest judges. Shout out to Refinery Media and Fox Network Group for an amazing season. #asntm5 #asntm #grandfinale #asiasnexttopmodel #top3 #onlylovenohate
