What happens when bad girls get together and rage?
Envisioned by creator Jonathan Murray as a show where “charismatic tough chicks” would live together in a luxury home for three months under the watchful eye of TV cameras, Bad Girls Club has become so popular it’s spawned a bunch of spin-offs, and the original lasted a whopping 17 seasons.
But which seasons are most worth watching?
Here is a quick countdown of the 5 best seasons of Bad Girls Club so you can kickstart your next BGC binge like a pro.
5. Season 15
Season 15 of BGC decided to focus on family, with a cast made up of four pairs of sisters. Or are they? Episode after episode, viewers were on the edge of their seats as two of the supposed sister sets were revealed to be hiding a huge secret. The result: Tons of drama, a couple of unforgettable fights, and the types of unbelievable twists and turns that true reality show fans end up talking about for weeks afterward.
4. Season 5
Known as the first season Bad Girls Club hit Miami, season 5 premiered to big-time numbers. How did the debut episode become the most-watched premiere in Oxygen history? Chalk it up to all the rumors of behind-the-scenes drama. In fact, one resident’s racist comments were so controversial the network decided not to re-air the season after its initial run. Still, those who can get their hands on footage or who saw the original airings say that the cast is among the most memorable bad girls of all time.
3. Season 7
Season 7 is a winner thanks to a diverse cast that somehow managed to get along. Rather than relying solely on pointless spats to generate ratings, this season’s bad girls made a name for themselves by being funny, honest, and throwing a bed into the pool.
2. Season 4
BGC viewers who tune in for the fistfights have pinpointed season 4 as the season when all the physical dust-ups started getting super entertaining. Cast member Natalie Nunn was at the heart of so many conflicts she actually got kicked off the show in episode 11 after she laid hands on some of her roomies during a road trip to Santa Barbara.
No hard feelings, though — Nunn came back to compete on a BCG spinoff called Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too, ultimately snagging second place.
1. Season 2
Season 1 of Bad Girls Club might be where it all started, but the second season is when things really got interesting. Host Star Jones helped the vibe along and gave the show a little more structure, but the real magic came from cast member Tanisha Thomas. The Brooklyn native was an instant fan favorite thanks to highly quotable lines like, “Pop off!” and “I ain’t got no sleep cause of y’all! Y’all ain’t gonna get no sleep cause of me.”
