I can't say Haley was my favorite, but she took on and performed what Scotty and Lauren would never be able to do. Scotty will likely be a household name. But, that being said, I doubt if either is fully emotionally mature for what's going to happen to them. They can say it's been their DREAM, but it's too bad that dream couldn't come later when they've experienced life a little more. They are still fully bonded to HOME and need to continue the steps nature intended to get to maturity. They are leaving friends, school, proms,and other teen activities with the friends they grew up with.
That is the part I hate to see.
