Okay so I think it was predetermined weeks ago that Laura was going to win.   I thought the judges always scored her a little too easily and they always leaned towards her as the best of the group. 

Kiara... I liked her enough and thought her pictures were okay.   I thought her runway walk was the best, but they did NOT stress the walk at all this season so I thought it was unfair for them to all of a sudden expect these girls to walk in a runway show (Umm Miss Jay, where are you?!?!?!?!?!).

Any other cycle, I believe that Leila would have won based on her pictures.   She was really the most photogenic of all of the girls and I was rooting for her when she got back into the competition.

I sort of thought Laura might have won because of her famous parents.... makes for good TV?  hmm

I was actually surprised that Laura won.  I really thought it was would be Kiara because of her upbringing, sad story, etc.  If Leila hadn't fallen, I think she would have won. 

Who are Laura's parents?  I never paid attention to her last name.

I thought that Laura was the "golden child" almost all season.   I just felt like they scored her higher a lot of the time and with all of her challenge wins, I thought she had a big chance of winning.

Her parents are.... John James is her dad.   He was on Dynasty.   Her mom was a model.    Her dad looks a bit older and puffier than he did in his Dynasty days, though.
