Tonight at 8pm on CMT is the finale of this season's "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team" and there is a local girl vying for a spot on the 36-member team.

Victoria Paige Carriere of Arnaudville is one of the finalists in the running to be part of America's most famous cheerleaders.

A family member sent us the following note promoting tonight's finale:

This Friday night we are having a celebration. Making The Team, the reality show highlighting the rookies that are fighting for a spot on the Legendary cheering squad for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, is announcing the final 36 women! Local girl Victoria Paige Carriere is still in the running!! Will she get her stars and a chance to take the field with the rest of Americas Sweethearts? Come and enjoy the party as we watch with the rest of America for the results!

The 23-year-old Carriere has been involved with dancing, tumbling and cheerleading nearly her entire life. She began dancing at the age of three. She went on to become a three-time national gold-medalist in power tumbling.

Victoria was a cheerleader at Beau Chene High School then went on to UL where she was a member of the Ragin' Jazz. However, dental school came calling and she eventually got her dental hygiene degree from LSU in 2013.

After a move to Dallas to begin her career, it seemed that her dancing career was coming to an eventual end. However, while working for Dr. Henegar, the official dentist of the Dallas Cowboys, and through his urgings, she tried out for the Cowboys cheerleading team.

And after a grueling "training camp", here she sits, awaiting her fate!

Our best of luck to Victoria as she finds out if she will be in that number as a member of the world famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleading squad!

SPOILER ALERT: If you go to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders website you can see the full roster. As you can imagine, the team has been in place a while now because, well, it is week 4 of the NFL season.
