Which she does! Megan decries all the trash-talking and backstabbing, by bitching about how she thinks Lauren threw her under the bus. Sure enough, Jason is asking Lauren, too, about exactly who are the mean bitches that Natalie was alluding to. Lauren says she doesn't see Jason with either of the two drama queens, Erica or Megan. Erica's immature and lives with her parents, she says, while Megan is just mean and Lauren is actually afraid of her. Like physically afraid and will wind up with a black eye if Megan finds out about this conversation, she explains. Oh, and also Nikki said that if Natalie had come back, she herself would have gone home. Lauren admits to Jason that if Megan or Erica is Jason's type, then she herself is not Jason's type.
Megan thinks this is all (bleep): "Lauren just stabbed me in the back." Some people are such good actors, and if she goes home tonight it'll be totally premature, she says.
Lauren comes back to the group and explains that Natalie ratted on women (she erroneously thinks that Natalie named names), and after Lauren points out that a lot of the women did throw Natalie under the bus yesterday, which they did, Megan pointedly says she'd lose any respect for anyone who tattled to Jason about anything. I can safely say that there are few things that would worry me less than not having Megan's respect. "Like, what are you, five?" says Megan, staring daggers at Lauren.
Jason, in an interview, says the rose ceremony is going to be tough, because Erica and Megan were identified as troublemakers, but he hasn't seen anything negative.
So it's deliberation time with Jason and Chris, and this is, I think, the first time I've seen this happen without Chris coming into the room and dragging the bachelor/ette away. He and Jason talk about what a struggle this is tonight because of what Natalie said. I'm way more surprised that Jason didn't just bring in the plaster busts to help him make a decision. "There's just so much drama going on right now that it's clouding my decision."
Rose ceremony time! Jason comes out, and Chris says there's a lot of drama going on, and a tough decision for Jason to make. In an unusual move, Chris invites the women to speak up and say whatever they think Jason needs to hear in order to make his decision.
