Filipina-German model Maureen Wroblewitz trumped everyone to win the fifth season of Asia's Next Top Model. Maureen is the first Filipina to win the show.

Sharing the news on Instagram, the teen beauty wrote a long post about her journey to the top: 'I still can't believe I'm saying this... but I'm Asia's Next Topmodel! It feels like a dream and I don't know when I'll ever realise that all this has happened to me.'

'This has been such a crazy journey but definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience I'll never forget about.'

'Before I entered the competition, I already doubted myself. I never even thought I would make it into the competition at all. But look at me now! I've learned so many new things. I've learned about different cultures, languages. I've learned about modeling. But I've mostly learned a lot about myself. I am stronger than I thought I was and I really don't give up!'

'I was constantly called 'a pretty face with no skills'. But little did they know, it would just make me come out stronger and better. It became a perfect motivation for me to prove them wrong and to show them that being inexperienced doesn't mean you're a weak model.'

'There were times where I felt like giving up, but I knew that it couldn't be an option. I was the last Filipina standing and a Filipina has never won before. I wanted to win this for my country - the Philippines and I'm so happy to say that I did. This is all for you guys! We won this together'

Way to go Maureen!

Looks like, Khloe Kardashian's beau Tristan Thompson was able to pass the best friend test and gain BFF Malika Haqq's seal of approval.

During an interview with E! Online at the Famously Single season 2 promotion, Haqq gushed over her BFF's romance with the 6'10" NBA player.

The 34-year-old reality noted, "I am so happy for Khloe and Tristan. They're a match. They're great friends. Their relationship is incredibly effortless. It's what you want to be. The sky's the limit to me when it comes to their relationship. They can do anything as long as they stay exactly the way they are right now."

Admitting that she's noticed a big difference in the former 'Kocktails with Khloe' star's current relationship, Haqq added, "Tristan's a very grounded, sound human being that comes from a great family."

"I love his mother, by the way! Sometimes you recognize other people come from similar backgrounds that might work a little more closely to the way you were raised or the way you do things. Morals and boundaries and all those things are really important and I think that they have a lot of the same morals and goals in life. I think that's why their relationship is successful," she continued.

Talking about whether or not she sees marriage in her bestie's future sometime soon, Haqq said, "I won't say what they won't do. I believe that they can do anything, the two of them. I really do."
