Laurie has a great chance to win. She is young, a good dancer, in amazing shape and appears to be having fun. She also has a huge built in fan base. Older women don't do well on the show but after Laurie I am cheering for Maureen Mc Cormick ( Marsha) and Marilou. I didn't know the race car driver but he was funny and good. I only watch the show when someone I like is on.
