    It's possible, but wouldn't be my guess. People just change over time - they probably have more in common now than they did a few years ago, gaining maturity, etc.

    Plus I think the dynamics of every SOI tour prob. are somewhat different b/c the cast list has a different mix of faces every year.

    In 2016, Maia was on the SOI tour (along with Alex); in 2014, Jason was on part of the tour. It would have been natural for Gracie to tend to gravitate then toward opportunities to spend time with her usually-long-distance BFFs.

    I think it's great that SOI skaters have a chance to strengthen bonds with each other .
    Although Josh and Jason grew up in the sport together as very congenial rivals, they said (I'm paraphrasing) that the SOI tour really solidified their friendship.

    Even if Gracie's skating is not at its finest on this year's tour, I hope that performing alongside her castmates is adding to her motivation for the important season ahead. I cannot imagine that she would not want to give her best shot at a place on the PyeongChang team, just as Karen, Ashley, Nathan, Vincent, Adam, C/B, and H/D will be giving theirs. Certainly doesn't hurt that two-time Olympian Jeremy and Olympic/world champions D/W are there to offer continuing support and inspiration .

    Just checked out some photos from Adam's Instagram: Graicie seems to have a much chubbier face now, which is probably a reflection of her body too
