“The Hills” Season Finale – You are Kidding Me, Right?

August 3, 2006 by  

The Hills Cast

Every week when I watch The Hills, my TiVo cuts off the last minute of the show. Usually I’m bummed to miss “next week on The Hills”, but this week…oh man, I hope my TiVo cut off the last 5 minutes, because if the ending I saw, was the ending that really happened – I’m floored.

First off, if you missed the show…no worries. MTV will reair it about 4598 times over the next week.  But for those of you who want to be in the know, here’s what went down.

Lauren and Whitney’s internship at Teen Vogue was coming to a close. The girls had to step it up and make things happen during LA’s Fashion Week.  I guess both succeeded because while Whitney was offered an internship at Teen Vogue in New York, Lauren was offered an opportunity at Teen Vogue in Paris.

While she should have accepted the offer right then and there, she was hesitant.  Why, do you ask?  As it happened, Lauren and Jason rented out a beach house in Malibu for the summer – just the two of them.  So taking this amazing, life altering, career defining opportunity would have meant she would have left her on-again/off-again boyfriend alone for the summer. Oh the horror!
Lauren clearly wants to accept the offer – that much is clear by looking at her face.  When she tells Jason about it, he goes as far as to say that he’ll support her no matter what she does.  His support is clearly lacking the enthusiasm it should.  Has Jason NOT seen Dawson’s Creek? If you love her, you let her go, nay, MAKE her go.  But Jason never has been in the running for boyfriend of the year, so what did I really expect?

As the season finale winds down, we see a dolled-up Lauren packing her bags and saying a tearful goodbye to Heidi. She and her massive red suitcase are driving on the highway…but where is she going?  Oh the drama and suspense of it all.  We see Lauren’s boss waiting at the airport.  Yay!!  Lauren took the internship.  We are so proud of you for making the right…um…wait…why is Lauren’s car pulling into a driveway? Oh no she didn’t!!!  Yes, she did.  Lauren decided to stay in Malibu for the summer with Jason.  Are you kidding me?  Someone slap this girl upside the head.
So this is where I need your help.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me that after my TiVo cut off they showed Lauren saying goodbye to Jason before heading to the airport to catch her flight to Paris?!  I have to believe that is what happened.  Tell me she did not throw away this incredible opportunity to hang out with McDrunk and his bad hair?  Ugh.

The Hills has been picked up for Season 2, but I’m not sure I can watch.  I may have lost all respect for Lauren Conrad tonight.  Don’t be surprised if you see me walking the streets of Boston in a TEAM KRISTIN shirt soon.  That’s how disappointed I am.

The upside…we don’t have to see or hear Heidi’s voice for a looooong time.  Praise Jesus!!

Season 3 of Laguna Beach starts next week. I feel like I’m a bit too old to be watching these HS kids.  I’ll give it a shot though.  Do you plan on watching?  What did you think of LC’s decision?

    I also was completely floored and lost any ounce of respect I had for her. As much as they fight and everything, please. No man is worth giving up such an opportunity. If he was a good boyfriend he would have demanded that she go. Ugh!

    I’m not a big fan of MTV’s reality shows, but i do find myself watching them and wondering why i did so. However, i have been watching The Hills all season and was upset that she didn’t take the internship. It’s almost like, well why work for TeenVogue if you’re not going to be serious about it? You want to be in the fashion biz and yet you don’t take one of the biggest opportunities to further your dream/career? Ridiculous.

    Jason didn’t surprise me at all. He doesn’t support Lauren at all (everything he says most of the time is pure BS). He is completely selfish. As soon as he found out about Lauren’s internship in Paris he should have freaked out and told her that she should go. But….no. He’s a loser and, unfortunately, Lauren has stooped to his level. And to think: i thought she had a good head on her shoulders.

    On a final note, thank God we don’t have to hear from Heidi. If there was ever a girl on the show that annoyed me more it was her. That girl is never going to be satisfied w/ anything ever.

    As soon as LC got the offer I knew she wasn’t going to take it. She’s young and insecure about her relationship, and in her mind her relationship with Jason is the most important thing because she is delusional enough to think that it will last forever. When you are young and insecure about your relationship and think it will last forever, you don’t do something that you KNOW will jeopardize it, like leave your loser boyfriend alone with a house in Malibu to pick up skanks at Malibu Inn every night. I’m not saying she made the right decision (she clearly did NOT) but I’m just saying I understand her decision making process.

    That said, thank God I am not young and stupid. Whenever people say “I wish I was in high school/college/my early 20’s again” I always shudder and am glad that I am not. Because I did stupid things like LC when I was her age, too.

    Also, Teen Vogue totally just went under so that intership was probably cancelled halfway through the summer anyway. So maybe she DID make the right decision, by accident. Hee.

    First of all, don’t write off Heidi so quickly. It seems she turned out to be the only smart one on the show. She dumped that meathead Jordan and started to take her job seriously.
    By the way, Lauren’s suitcase was bright pink and not red… Everyone knew Lauren didn’t take the Paris internship because she has been making appearance everywhere this summer.
    I’m glad Whitney got it because she deserved it more.
    We’ll have to wait for The Hills Season 2 for another year.

    OMG O csn’t believe Lauren did that. I think she should of taken the internship, I certainly would of. But I can’t say that i totally hate her decision, She thought she was going to be with her love but i guess that didn’t work out based on a recent mag article in Popstar. Oh and realityshowjunkette i agree Hiedi was the smart one but I can’t agree with you that Whitney deserves the internship more, they both appeared to be striving and succeding at teen vouge.

    okay i think lauren is totally confused i mean hello it was only for the summer its not like she was going forever and kris you must not watch the show very often cause heidi did the right thing by letting jordan go and jason needs to get a reallity check he totally cares about himself and acts like lauren should always do whatever he wants to do personaly i think he was trying to make her feel bad but that was laurens decision and everything happens for a reason so i don’t dislike anyone exept jason

    Ithought that Lauren definitely should have taken the opportunity…it was Paris, even her boss said that it would change her life and give her so many opportunities for her future in fashion. That is what Lauren wants to do with her life right? At least I thought so, her and Jason have also been going out for only like five months or something since splitting up on Laguna, I also agree with the comment that if he really did love her and was a good boyfriend than he would have told her to go. I also think it is stupid because now, in the present time Jason and Lauren are broken up. I think they are an adorable couple and I think it was very loyal of her to choose him but I don’t think pretty much throwing her future in the fashion industry was a good idea.

    I can’t believe it either. I know they broke up a long time ago, rumor has it, he was assaulting her. He may even have gotten arrested?

    Season two might just be worth watching after all, if they include that!

    is that true that heidi got plastic surgery like on her face right after she met spencer?!? like i dont know if that is true or not, but i readd it n then i looked at her face now and then before and it looks a lot different!

    well i am a huge hills fan, but i just started to watch it in the middle of season 2 and i watched at the episodes and after shows on the internet from the begg. of season 2 and all of season 1. like i have seen the hills before only bits and pieces and then i never got interestes until like a little while ago when my friend told me about it!!

    is that true that heidi got plastic surgery like on her face right after she met spencer?!? like i dont know if that is true or not, but i readd it n then i looked at her face now and then before and it looks a lot different! i just never really like, noticed!

    I can’t believe Lauren did that!!
    she ended up breaking up with Jason anyway and as if he treated her the way she should be.
    I mean clearly new years eve was a total ender if I was with him. Once a cheater always a cheater… not that he cheated on her though..
    But she is so amazing I love her!!
    As if Heidi was ever faithful to lauren anyway.
    backstabbing wh0re!!
    hate her..
    anyway is there a season three?
    or just season one and two..
    Im from australia and really can’t wait till season two comes out here already.. i’m planning to buy it off ebay!!!


  19. QC on August 19th, 2008 7:14 pm

    Don’t you think you’re blowing this out of proportion?
    I mean Lauren may have made a huge mistake about Jason, but it’s not like you and others out there are making it any easier for her to move on.
