Bad Girls All-Star Battle
Bad Girls Club (BGC) is a reality television series created by Jonathan Murray for the Oxygen network in the United States. The show focuses on the altercations and physical confrontations of seven highly aggressive, quarrelsome, and unruly women. Each of the women tend to have psychological and behavioral problems. Mischievously sexual and rascally moments are also captured among the women. All seven women have different backgrounds and personalities. They are introduced to the show based off their capacity to be a "charismatic, tough chick." The cast, deemed "bad girls", enjoy a luxurious lifestyle in a fine mansion for three months, during which they must obey specified rules. Their lives inside and outside of the house are chronicled and recorded by the production team.
The Bad Girls Club airs in three nations besides the United States; on MTV Australia in that nation, RTL 5 in The Netherlands, and TV11 in Sweden, and as of May 2013 has not been licensed to a broadcaster in another nation for a local version of the series. The program has been negatively reviewed for the effect it may have on teenagers, and the negative attitudes and remarks of the cast members have caused outrage to some viewers.
The format of the show has changed from early seasons. If a "bad girl" breaks a rule, she is evicted from the show and, if it is early in the season, replaced by a new "bad girl". There have been nine complete seasons of The Bad Girls Club, with the tenth season currently airing. The fourth season had the highest ratings in the show's history, becoming its "breakthrough season".
There have been three spin-offs of The Bad Girls Club. One of them, Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too, where past cast members seek true love, has gained high ratings. Oxygen has also released a mobile game, comic strip and merchandise to promote the show.
Of the 92 contestants, Kerry Harvick (of season one) was a successful country singer before the show. Tanisha Thomas (of season two) later hosted Oxygen's OxygenLive! and the subsequent seasons of Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too. Thomas, who has been dubbed the "godmother" to all contestants, has her own television documentary entitled Tanisha Gets Married. As of Season 8 she's been the host of the reunion specials.
A central goal of the show has become who can last until the final day. Lasting until the final day without ever being kicked out or leaving for another reason is treated as an impressive feat on the series due to the level of violence and hostility. If the cast members engage in violence towards each other or break other rules, they may or may not be evicted under the show's policy, which is whimsically and fickly enforced by the producers. Security guards apparently live in the house behind the scenes as they jump into camera shot to break up the many violent altercations that break out on the series. Beyond the common occurrence of violence and combat, other reasons for the premature exits of cast members have been fatigue from bullying, ostracism and alienation from the rest of the housemates, problems at home, court proceedings, or their own narcissism. On some occasions, multiple "bad girls" may wish to leave the show; this has happened in seasons one (2006), five (2010), six (2011), eight (2012) and nine (2012). If a girl departs early in the season, a "replacement bad girl" is introduced within one or two episodes. The replacement housemate is commonly hazed, aggressed at, and treated with prejudice.
All or most of the girls typically form cliques between each other; create havoc and antagonize each other; book parties in night clubs; and engage in sexual antics and other mischief, all awhile attempting to maintain their personal lives. Bullying and outnumbering gang attacks (where multiple cast members intimidate one cast member or some other fewer number of cast members) are among regular occurrences on the program. The girls, deemed "bad girls", come from different backgrounds and all different walks of life. Earlier on in the series, they'd often try to cope with one another and change their promiscuous behavior to become role models for young women. Some cast members try to accomplish specific goals.
Throughout the show, the "bad girls" must adapt to the frequent mood and behavior changes of their housemates. The girls must undergo interviews in confessionals.  They are allowed to contact their families and friends using a computer connected to a large-screen television, but the use of televisions or cell phones is prohibited in the house. However starting with season 11, cast members use social media while filming.
A Bad Girl knows what she wants and how to get it. She makes her own way, makes her own rules and she makes no apologies. A Bad Girl blazes her own trail and removes obstacles from her path. A Bad Girl fights and forces her way to the top with style and beauty. A Bad Girl believes in jumping first and looking later. People will love you. People will hate you. Others will secretly wish to be you. A Bad Girl is you.
Seasons 1 and 2 
The format for the first season of Bad Girls Club was different from that of subsequent seasons. The age range for season one was from 21 to 31. The use of nicknames was not introduced until the third season. Season one was the first in which multiple "replacement bad girls" entered the show.
Although there were differences in season one, the current rules have applied in all subsequent seasons. One feature continued from season one was the way the show opened: viewers were shown the biggest and most intense physical altercation of the season, and the program then went back to a time before it happened. This fight usually gives you an idea of who is going to be the baddest, or one of the baddest, girls in the house. This altercation draws in many viewers and keeps them wondering what will happen next.
In the second season, the format of the show changed drastically. The maximum age dropped from 31 to 27. The cast of season two were given mandatory non-profit jobs to help them build a work ethic and to experience the stabilizing effect of being interdependent with others, for example in teamwork and commitment, to equip them for success in later life. Quitting the job or failure to attend resulted in mandatory removal from the show. The girls were given the jobs of planning, decision making, and building cooperation. Season two was the first and only season of the Bad Girls Club to do this, and was also the last to air 30-minute episodes.
Live shows 
On August 3, 2010, during the OxygenLive TV recap episode, the show combined Facebook and Twitter with a live broadcast. Fans submitted opinions and comments about the show and its cast, which were aired during the 10 pm hour.
In January 2011, Oxygen released OxygenLive!, an online talk show hosted by Tanisha Thomas, one of the "bad girls" of season two. It was broadcast after season six debuted on Oxygen, and focused on the cast of season six, occasionally bringing in "bad girls" from earlier seasons. Thomas asked the girls several questions to prompt rumors and confessions.

Critical reception 
Many homophobic slurs have caught the attention of media outlets. Mary Mitchell of Sun Times stated that the show was "hazardous to the female psyche" and wrote, "Just like some teens try to emulate rappers in their dress and behavior, the same is true for 'bad girls. '" She also commented that the show gives a "distorted picture" of how to live the good life, calling the cast "wannabes" who are "sleeping in a mansion they can't pay for". Mitchell believes that most people know the cast are living "a bogus lifestyle", and assesses the message of the Bad Girls Club as "disturbing".
Many adolescents have emulated The Bad Girls Club The show has also received negative criticism from African-American viewers, believing that it is "not what being a black woman is all about. " Mary Chase Breedlove of Reflector objected that "there are several TV programs devoted to acting as trashy and mean as possible ('Bad Girls' Club, ' ...)". The New York Daily News suggested that Bad Girls Club was the equivalent of professional wrestling. Kris De Leon of BuddyTV described the show as "crude, rude and pointless, but sort of addictive to some people. "
Brian Lowry of Variety thought that the producers made the "wrong decision" when they created the show. He believed that the cast of Bad Girls Club auditioned for the show for their "15 minutes of fame". He said that Bad Girls Club "arrived a little late in this game, on a channel lacking the kind of exposure or public footprint to qualify the show even as the stuff guilty pleasures are made of". Lowry believed that the show "loses" and that Oxygen attracts viewers who generally get drunk at bars and make a scene. He also suggested that "maybe it's time to "BAG" these bad-attitude girls and beat a hasty retreat back to the real world".
Anita Gates of The New York Times referred to Bad Girls Club as "a great argument for bringing back programming with actors". She believed that the "average emotional age" appeared to be 15, in contrast to the girls' real ages. She stated that the "unpleasant villains cancel one another out and actually make badness uninteresting", commenting that their behavior might not be "bad enough". Gates concluded by suggesting that Bad Girls Club is the on-location equivalent of The Jerry Springer Show. Kelly West of Cinemablend stated that Bad Girls Club is "so much fun to watch".
Season 4 
During "Off The Wall", the first episode of the fourth season, Natalie Nunn told Annie Andersen that Chris Brown was at a night club that she wanted to attend, and asked Anderson if she was a fan. Anderson said not, because of the domestic violence case that Brown was involved in. Nunn defended Brown, saying "Who cares, Rihanna was a punk bitch, and she got her ass beat for a reason". Nunn called Rihanna a "crazy bitch" and claimed to know her, unlike Anderson. After the episode aired, Brown reportedly stated that he did not know who Nunn was. Nunn questioned this during the reunion show, claiming that Brown had said it because the cast of the show had not yet been revealed. Perez Hilton, the host of the reunion, asked Nunn if Rihanna had confronted her about her comments. Nunn answered yes, stating that the two had argued during a dinner party in New York City. During the reunion, Nunn claimed to have had a "fling" with Brown before the show. Shortly before the end of the reunion, Nunn said that she did not condone domestic violence and apologized if her comment had enraged fans and people who had been victims of it.
During Episode 12 "Amber Alert", Kathryn "Kate" Squillace had punched Anne "Annie" Anderson in the face, leading to her removal from the show in Episode 13 "Out with a Bang". In Episode 13, Anderson announced that she was planning on pressing charges on her former roommate. It is revealed in the episode "Reunion Part 1" that Squillace was charged for physical assault.
Season 5 
During the episode "The Wicked Witch Of Key West", a stranger at a bar offered to buy drinks for Kristen Guinane and Christina Marie Hopkins. He spiked the drinks with PCP hallucinogenic pills, and Guinane became intoxicated. She claimed to have suffered bruises on her body when the man grabbed her and handled her roughly. Guinane reported that the producers of the show did not want to identify the man on television for fear of a lawsuit. She blamed the drug for her hitting another cast-member, Lea Beaulieu, in the face, leading to a fight.
While Hopkins was intoxicated, one of her friends recorded her making racial slurs about an African American woman who had threatened her. The video surfaced on the Internet and outraged many people. Oxygen told TMZ.com that Hopkins would never appear on their channel again. TMZ.com reported that roommate Ashley Cheatham had sent Hopkins a hate text visible to the world, telling her to "do us all a favor and go kill yourself". After the incident Hopkins released a letter of apology, giving her reasons for the slurs.
After season five had wrapped, Catya Washington was sentenced to jail for possession of a concealed weapon and illegal use of drugs. Several days later, she was due back in court after she struck and sprayed mace in the face of the wife of a man she was dating. She was charged with aggravated assault, inflicting serious bodily injury, possession of an instrument of crime (mace), and recklessly endangering another person. Washington's bail was set at $500,000, but her family raised this, and she was released under house arrest. Several days later, however, she was arrested again for "outstanding bench warrant". However, she was released from jail with an extended curfew.
Season 6 
During season six production, residents of Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, complained that noise levels and swearing were unbearable and inappropriate for them and their children to listen to during the night. The residents called local law enforcement agencies four or five times to deal with the late-night disturbances. Clarissa Keller, a Sherman Oaks resident, complained that she had a six-year-old son and didn't want him to listen to the swearing. She set up a petition calling for a ban on all production companies in the Sherman Oaks hills. Location managers and production crew declined to discuss the neighbors' complaints.
The Bad Girls Club permit required the entire production to abide by a "minimum outdoor activity and noise" rule, but local residents claimed that the show did not keep noise levels down. The house for season six was rented for $20,000 a month. The owner said that he would not allow this type of production to rent his home in the future.
Season 7 
On March 13, 2011, TMZ.com reported that the cast was banned from at least eight clubs that "[didn't] want to be associated with the show's bad image", and that they were excluded from Pierre Thomas's Mardi Gras party at the The Metropolitan Night Club.
On April 12, 2011, cast member Tasha Malek complained to an on-duty police officer outside the Bad Girls house about the conduct of fellow cast member Nastasia Townsend. She claimed that Townsend had placed her personal belongings into a garbage bag, telling her "she needed to leave the house", and that the incident had escalated into a fight. The two were issued summonses by the police for disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct.
Judith "Judi" Jackson was arrested on November 9, 2011 on suspicion of DUI. While police searched her car for a sobriety test Jackson climbed out of the squad car and attempted to escape on foot where police found her in a nearby home where later charges of resisting arrest and theft
Season 8 
On March 24, 2012 TMZ reported that cast member Gia Sapp-Hernandez was arrested on assault charges for an altercation with several men in a Myrtle Beach, SC nightclub in which reportedly she bit one of them during an event promoting the show. Sapp-Hernandez then released a statement to TMZ saying that she had been partying with the male accuser earlier that night when he "hinted" that he wanted to have sex with her. When she turned him down he became irate and belligerent and punched her in the face twice and that was when police arrived to the scene, Gia claims the officers "ignored" her accusations instead choosing to believe the man.
Season 9 
It was revealed after the show had finished airing that roommate Christina Salgado had lied about her age to be on the show claiming she was 21, but only being 19. The age requirements are women between 21-30 years old.
Season 10 
It was revealed by Nicole "Nicky" Vargas that during the show the day she wanted to leave episode 4 "The Girl Who Cried Mommy" was hold quarantined by the producers. While Nicole is talking to her mother on the phone she had said "I might be going home sooner than i thought" producers cut the phone line and disconnected the internet and told her she could not leave the house until the girls got their because they wanted her to leave with a "Bang". She was hold quarantined until Nicole's mother had called the police and had escorted Nicole out. Producers edited the whole thing out for worries of being sued by Nicole.
Season 11 
In February 2013, Oxygen released a 90-second preview of Season 11, which had started filming a week prior. This preview heavily featured a girl who later became identified by viewers as Tess. However, when the official cast was announced on May 21st, 2013, Tess was not included in the cast, nor was she included in the longer trailer that aired after the Season 10 reunion or in the cast photos which came out the next day. Speculation arose that since Tess only stayed in the house for one day, she would be subsequently edited out of the show and her replacement Gina would be edited to be an original bad girl. Oxygen has not yet commented on the matter.
