Memling is good. Too good to get knocked out right now? No. My vote goes to Laurencin.

Memling is too good to get knocked out right now, at least by Laurencin.

Mm, Memling, I guess. But it was close.

It was close all right, as Laurencin sneaks by Memling by a single vote, seven votes to six. That knocks Memling out of the Tournament, and advances Laurencin to Second Round Elimination!
