The youngest of three daughters from Roseland, New Jersey, with a striking mixed heritage--Filipino and Irish--Lori was labeled early on a "super star" child by her sisters. While she has excelled at everything she has tried, her real passion in life is singing. Blessed with a gorgeous voice, Lori was one of the lead vocalists in a Boston College singing group called the Bostonians. A self-described drama magnet, Lori says she gets bored unless she has some kind of conflict in her life. Lori was the winner of the MTV.com Online Casting and beat out four other finalists to win a spot at the finals.
