Asia's Next Top Model Pinay contestant Maureen Wroblewitz experienced bullying from the other hopefuls in the competition.
In the past, Maureen had a nasty encounter with Indonesia's Clara Tan. They were taking each other's photos using a smartphone when Clara told Maureen, "If you don't get, you're stupid."
Maureen recalled in an interview, "Clara looked at the photos and called me stupid because she doesn't like the pictures. I'm thinking, 'Whatever, Clara, do it yourself.'"
When Clara finally got the photos that she liked, she said out loud, "See...Maureen is so stupid."
During the eighth episode of the reality show, Clara voiced out that Maureen doesn't deserve to be in the Top 6.
Clara told Maureen, "For Top 6, you don't deserve to be here anymore.
"I want to compete with strong models, you only have a pretty face but no skills."
Shikin Gomez, who hails from Malaysia, echoed Clara's observation and said, “I agree that you have a lot to learn, I’m actually pretty surprised that you’ve gotten this far.”
"For me, some top model left and I feel it's unfair," said Vietnam's Minh Tu Nguyen.
Clara also revealed in front of the camera that Clara and the other finalists plotted to tell her that she shouldn't be too confident with her standing in Top 6.
However, Maureen was able to prove them wrong.
Maureen got her revenge when she got the best photo in their pictorial.
She even got a compliment from guest photographer Yu Tsai.
He told Maureen, "I was so impressed by you. Your face came laser-focused. At one point I didn’t say anything, I just had to shut up.
"You have what it takes to be an amazing, amazing model."
