What's the Difference Between a Hamster and Guinea Pig? The Hills Girls Aren't Sure

Lauren Schools Stephanie on Hamsters and Guinea Pigs!

Even if you're not a guinea pig expert, you know what those furry fellas look like, right? They are most definitely not supersized hamsters and, frankly, I don't even think baby guinea pigs resemble adult hamsters. However, Stephanie Pratt made this baffling comment on last night's episode of The Hills.

What do you make of this? All I can imagine is that she used to have a hamster that died and was replaced with a guinea pig . . . even Lauren looked surprised. What do you think Stephanie's trying to say here?

I think it was meant to be funny, but with Stephanie who can really be sure?!

Not to defend Stephanie Pratt's intelligence (or anyone else's on the show) but knowing the difference between a hamster and a guinea pig is not on my litmus test for how smart someone is. They're both rodents - who cares.

That by far, is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard in my life. I feel bad for her hamster/guinea pig/rabbit/gerbil who even knows what!

Hahaha I remember laughing with my sister about this when we were watching it. Oh my God, I love Lauren's face!! I THINK I understand what she was saying (about it being small and getting bigger) but I'm not so sure she knew they were different species.. I wouldn't put it past her.

LOL That was Stephanie's cali blonde comment on the hills. Granted Hamsters can become huge, but not as big as a Guinea Pig.

That comment was so ridiculous. I got that she was saying it was small when she got it, then it grew bigger. I don't know...I just know that it was really stupid.

yes!! i was wondering who would make fun of that comment stephanie made last night! i thought it would be great for 'talk soup'! i was confused if she thought hamsters turn into guinea pigs when they grow up or if her hamster died and she replaced it with a guinea pig. at least lauren understood the difference i think.
