The Bad Girls Club: HouseEdit
The Bad Girls Club house, similar to previous seasons, features free accessories such as shoes, purses, and jewelries which were displayed as add-ons on the walls of the house. Inside the house, in the middle, has a "light fixture" which features, "girly" colors such as pink and purple décor. The fixture was also made up of patterns of high heels which was displayed above the centered circular small black couch. In the living room, the girls was given spotted light color couches which was in front of paintings of various cities. Close to the paintings, were, the "Bad Girls Club oath" which sits above the fireplace. The girls was also give a 1960s replica of a wall Trimphone, instead of today's modern house phones. Inside the girls rooms, features adult toys and statues of half naked men which were displayed on the walls of some of the girls rooms. Like season 4, season 5 also had the "Screaming O" vending machine which the girls had to pay a fee in order to receive adult toys, similar to a full-line vending. The vanity room, also features, 1960s furniture, which the girls go constantly to apply beauty supplies and/or get ready for a night club. The jacuzzi was placed, alongside, in front of the computer which had speakers cornering the computer. The jacuzzi was also placed inside the bad girls house. In the back of the house, the girls was given a modern pool, and a outside modern swing, which the girls could get some shade. Inside the pool, however, features a queen size floating bed which floats around the pool. The kitchen features a more 1970s look, with light patterns. The girls were also given gas stoves. The kitchen table featured light green, black, white, and orange colors.
Around the house, former bad girls, most famous quotes and a picture of themselves were displayed allover the mansion. For the "new comers" their self-portraits were left blank. When Natalie and Annie showed up first inside the house, they quickly targeted the other new girls pictures with first impression comments, which didn't sit right when the girls began arriving to the house. Once Portia left, her most famous quote was displayed, along with her photo, in the bad girls house. During the season finale of season 4, all seven girls were given their spot on the walls with their most famous quotes and a picture of themselves.
Pictures of former bad girls housemates were displayed around the house, where the most intense arguments, fights, and break-downs occurred, a photo of their breakdowns were also featured in the locations where the moment had happened.
The format remained largely unchanged from previous seasons. A group of seven rebellious women who are between the ages of 21 and 27 moves in a mansion and must try to co-exist with different personalities, lifestyles, race and sexual orientation. Most importantly they must try to adapt to the frequent changes of moods and behaviors of their roommate. The seven "original" bad girls must also abide by all the rules that were given to them prior to moving in such as no physical violence towards anyone including the producers, the girls must not intrude a "bad girls" production room and must tolerate various interviews in their diary rooms. The girls must also follow normal rules of the country when leaving the house to go on dates, personal tasks and/or parting. During the show, the girls are put into situations where some must divide the house, create havoc to satisfy oneself, book parties and hook ups in clubs, groceries shopping and they must also juggle everything including their own personal lives. The girls are allowed to contact their families and their personal relationship partners, the girls are given either a laptop or a big screen TV that futures a home computer. The girls are also allowed to have frequent visitors to see them. The girls must go through tough situations such as fights (arguments, spit at, food fights, breaking of personal belongings, and personal attacks) and physical fighting such as physically touching another "bad girl" with intentions of hurting that person, which is what each season of girls has to overcome. The girls are thrown in the house and are there to co-exist and must tolerate everyone in order to "make it" at the end of the season and they accomplish this by staying in the show without being removed due to physical fighting.
In some cases, some "bad girls" may wish to leave the show due to a number of reasons. For example, issues at home, girls thinking that they are better than the others or mostly due to the fact that some could not deal with the tensions and stress. Some of the females had to deal with bullying and double tagging a "bad girl". A replacement is usually introduced in the house an episode or two after one bad girl leaves the show or is removed. The "original" bad girls are then seen dominate and stick together to try to intimidate the replacements unless the "newbies" are just like them. Bullying and tag teaming are seen throughout the series of the Bad Girls Club due to making personal friends and having ones back or if a group of girls dislike another they would form a way to make sure that the other girl is gone within a day of bullying. At the end of the show, some girls change their ways which is the key of the show to change the girls "bad behaviors" and turn them into role models by placing seven girls of the same behavior with different reasons as being "bad" in one house.
