Set within the world of competitive gymnastics, drama follows a group of Olympic hopefuls as they train for their big moment.
Lauren Tanner is a another gymnast at The Rock. Lauren is also known as the 'mean girl' of the gym or the 'bitch of the beam' (her best event being the beam). She showed complete displeasure at having Emily in the gym, scheming to try and find a way for Emily to be kicked out. She left The Rock after being beaten by Emily for 3rd place, but came back when The Rock found a new head coach, Sasha Belov. She has a crush on Carter, Kaylie's boyfriend, and later has sex with him as result of depression on her birthday. Lauren told Payson and Kaylie that she lost her virginity, but she does not say with who.
She shows jealousy towards Kaylie, stealing the necklace Carter gave to her. She is best friends with Kaylie and Payson. Lauren and her father, Steve, both dream of her participating in the Olympics. However, Lauren's performances, which are although full of 'fire' (as described by Sasha Belov), lack likeability because Lauren never smiles. This is due to the fact that Lauren's biological mother is an addict, who loves getting high more than Lauren. According to her father, she has checked in and out of rehab numerous times, and wants nothing do with Lauren. In the episode All's Fair in Love, War, and Gymnastics, she leaves Carter's cell phone in the bathroom, where Kaylie's dad finds it, with pictures of Kaylie kissing Carter.
After further rejection from Carter, she comes crying to Summer, since she is the only one who was there for her. They talk and become close friends. Summer and Steve break up after Summer found out that Steve threatened Lauren's mom not to come to Nationals. This, however, makes Lauren believe that Summer left her, but Summer later shows up right after one of Lauren's routines, saying how she will always be Lauren's friend. Lauren later comes in fourth at Nationals.
