Lauren Choosing Jason Over Paris On "The Hills" Still Haunts Me To This Very Day

"She's always going to be known as the girl who didn't go to Paris."

Posted on

If you watched MTV in the early-to-mid 2000s, you might remember the crown jewel of scripted reality television: The Hills.

I mean, who could forget the catfights, work drama, and will-they-won't-they-date storylines every week?

And of course, this very wise advice that perfectly related to my junior high boy problems.

And of course, this very wise advice that perfectly related to my junior high boy problems.

But after all this time, there's still one thing that haunts me every day of my life.

MTV

It's not that Heidi clearly chose her relationship with Spencer over her friendship with Lauren...

Or that they straight-up replaced LC with her archenemy, Kristin Cavallari, to keep the show going for two more seasons...

IT'S THE FACT THAT LAUREN PICKED HANGING OUT WITH HER BOYFRIEND OVER AN INTERNSHIP IN ~PARIS, FRANCE~.

BUT YOU DID, LAUREN. YOU DID.

BUT YOU DID, LAUREN. YOU DID.

Now, listen. I'm just as big of a fan of true love as anyone else, and I'll admit at one point in time Lauren and Jason were my OTP...

MTV

BUT 👏 GIRL 👏 IT'S 👏 PARIS 👏 FRANCE.

I guess really no one could have predicted how things with Lauren and Jason would end...

(Or like, could we? Doesn't anyone remember New Year's Eve 2005?!)

MTV

But alas, she chose what looked like true love over her career.

Even though we never saw any real footage of that summer in Malibu, the first episode of the next season was very telling.

SAME, LAUREN. SAME.

Basically, it's been years since The Hills ended, but LC might never live it down.
