Jason Lance Dent was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 19 (US).

He is known for his friendship with Kevin Schlehuber, his close alliance with Alex Ow, and for accidentally breaking Christmas Abbott's foot in week 1. After Paul convinced his close friend Josh to flip on him, he was ultimately evicted during the first half of the second Double Eviction as result of Christmas casting the tiebreaker vote against him. He placed 7th and was the fifth member of the jury.

On finale night it was revealed Jason, Cody and Kevin were in the top 3 for America's Favorite Houseguest award, but lost to Cody.
