Fil-Kiwi model-fashion designer-beauty queen Stephanie Dods, known to most here as Radio-TV personality KC Montero’s fiancée, was crowned big winner for the sixth season of “The Apartment,” a reality TV competition airing on the Sony Channel.
“The Apartment” challenges contestants from across Southeast Asia to redecorate a new room each week.
Dods won over two other Pinoy designers, Jesy Cruz and Eugene del Rosario, in the semis; going on to best Malaysian make-up artist Rachel Lee in the finale.
She admitted via Instagram the contest physically and mentally “drained” her, but in the end it was worth it.
Her prize is a luxurious apartment in Malaysia.
Montero was quick to congratulate Dods for her win, posting: “Words cannot describe how proud I am of her.”
He added “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,” he added.
“The Apartment,” which originated from Indonesia, started airing in 2011.
