BU Dance Team Tournament Day 10 - #6 Rachel Scott vs. #5 Grace Lam

The final four is 3/4 complete after Sarah Shelton's dominant victory over Jaime Beith in the Southeast (Montgomery, AL) regional.

The freshmen have had great success in the tournament thus far, going 3-1 with one representative in the Final Four. The seniors, on the other hand, have gone 1-3 with Grace as the only representative left.

Once again, before you look into the bios/pictures I remind you to keep the following factors in mind when determining a winner:

- Dancing abilities
- Spirit
- How well you think she cooks
- Smile
- Skills in a mud wrestling cage fight
- Driving abilities
- Provided bio

Don't they look so happy? Too bad one will lose tonight.

Fresh off of a tight victory of Kate "No-Neck" Stanton, Rachel looks to keep the hot streak up.

I once heard a rumor that Rachel always leaves notes if she gets into an accident with an unattended car. Couldn't we all learn a thing or two from that?

Andrew Jackson may not have been a big fan of Rachel Scott's part-Cherokee decent, but let's be serious, Ulysses Grant made it on a higher bill than our lovely yet racist 7th president.

I think I should stop talking before I offend anyone else. Here are some pictures to help sway your decision (Click that jawn to enlarge):

Grace is the captain of the BU Dance Team. She enjoys long walks on the beach and indoor Badminton.

Ok, I made that up. Grace hails from California and she once used the word "bomb" as an adjective. AN ADJECTIVE. That was 4 months ago, but I'm still trying to figure out what it means. Grace also took home the 2007-2008 category for "Female Asian Willis Hong." That is a rather prestigious award, and if you don't know who Willis Hong is, please kill yourself. Or compare your life to Willis Hong and kill yourself.

At any rate, here are some pictures of Grace (again, click that jawn):

The winner gets a trip to the Final Four. Show no mercy.

I think you should make a losers bracket of this tournament and call it the "Win a date with Drake" bracket. I'm a worthy consolation prize. I drive a Dodge Stratus.
