NEWS: Philippine's Stephanie Retuya

Filipina Stephanie Retuya placed first-runner up in the first cycle of "Asia's Next Top Model," losing to Thailand's Jessica Amornkuldilok.

The TV competition's finale aired in Singapore last Sunday where three women had to shoot a commercial for Canon and a cover for Harper's Bazaar magazine. It was attended by "Top Model" host and creator Tyra Banks, who also judged the finale.

The other woman in the top three was Kate Ma of Taiwan, who won in several previous challenges.

The 23-year-old Stephanie was considered to be the competition's underdog for being in the bottom two five times. She even did not score a single best photo victory in any episode of the show.

The Laguna native is a part-time model and a full-time mother to a baby girl. She only began modeling nearly a year ago, but had to take a leave when she got pregnant.

She said taking part in the reality TV contest was a dream for her, as said she had not traveled outside the Philippines until she joined "Asia's Next Top Model."

Jessica as the winner gets home with a modelling contract covering UK and Europe with London-based Storm Models, which represents supermodels Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford.

She also gets a cover shoot with Bazaar magazine, a contract to become the face of Canon Ixus 2013 campaign, a cash prize of US$100,000 and a new Subaru XV.
