For someone who was mocked for being just a pretty face, Filipino-German Maureen Wroblewitz slayed the runway of the fifth season of "Asia's Next Top Model." 

Here's a look back at the times she won best photo in the competition. 

Her first best picture win came in episode 5, in which she and her fellow contestants were tasked to do a shoot inspired by Maybelline It Girl and supermodel Gigi Hadid.

And despite being one of the youngest, Wroblewitz worked the camera like a pro as she showcased the perfect smokey eye look with aplomb. The judges praised her for nailing the "midtown girl" attitude.

While her first win provided a glimpse into her potential to storm the summit, her second proved to have more significance as it represented a turning point in her "Asia's Next Top Model" journey.

Faced with ridicule from her fellow contestants for lacking the skills of someone who wants to be a top model, Wroblewitz had to dig deep and quickly realize that the tail-end of the competition is no place to start doubting yourself.

It was in episode 8 where Wroblewitz first opened up about her insecurities, admitting that she tends to overthink every pose that she does.

But determined to prove her doubters wrong, and with some encouraging words from guest photographer Yu Tsai, Wroblewitz stood tall above everyone else and got her much-needed confidence booster heading into the final five.

Wroblewitz's third win was just what the viewers needed to further believe that she deserved her spot in the finals.

It was during this episode where many thought that she really did look like a top model and a professional, who looked incredibly fierce as she owned the tropical winter shoot challenge while wearing ice skates.

Seemingly relishing her newfound underdog status thanks to the harsh comments she received, she told her Filipino fans: "I'll keep fighting no matter what and I'll be doing this for all of you."
