Filipino-Australian wins ’The Apartment: Passion for Design’ show

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-Australian Stephanie Dods is the winner of The Apartment: Passion for Design, a Malaysian reality television show. 

Stephanie, a fashion designer, won the 6th season of the reality TV show, beating Malaysian makeup artist Rachel Lee in the final episode, which aired on Saturday, May 26.

Fellow Filipinos Jesy Cruz and Eugene del Rosario joined Stephanie and Rachel in the semi-finals.

As the winner, Stephanie will get her own luxury apartment in Malaysia.

“What an incredible 6 weeks. You can only prepare so much for an experience like this and you never really know what to expect,” Stephanie said on Instagram. “I remember being so mentally and physically drained by the end of it but I’m so glad that my hard work and perseverance pulled through. It was one of the most challenging experiences of my life and one that I will never forget.”

Words cannot describe how proud I am of her. I think I cried more than she did because I'm just so happy for her. I can't wait for her future success, so I can quit working and become a professional video game player. A post shared by kc montero (@kcmontero) on May 25, 2018 at 3:59am PDT
