True, she has not won a single Best Photo during the pre-final run of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 1.
True as well that she is going into the Grand Finale of the show as the underdog.
But whatever the results will unravel come Sunday night, Stephanie Retuya of the Philippines has already left an indelible mark in the eyes of the regional TV audience. Her beautiful face cannot be denied, regardless of the fact that she crawled her way to the Top 3 in the toughest manner possible. She was on the brink of elimination the most number of times, and in every bottom two appearance, she managed to get saved.
Call her soft. Call her shy. Call her what you want.
Stephanie is still up there with the top favorite (Jessica) plus Kate to lay claim for the top prize.
Win or lose, she has already proven herself more than worthy. 🙂
