Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club” brings high-intensity to a new level with a cast of young, bold, outrageous and endlessly entertaining women as they jockey for a position as the head girl in charge. Each claiming to be the ultimate “bad girl,” can they put aside their differences and live together peacefully under one roof – or will chaos rule?
Meet the new girls:
Meghan – Houston, TX
A self-proclaimed “nudist at heart,” Meghan is a smart young woman who graduated from high school a year early. Scarred from previous relationships, Meghan has difficulty letting people in. However, when she is looking, this “single as a pringle” girl prefers her men tall, dark, handsome, rich, famous, and athletic.
Rima – Chicago, IL
“I’m the first one taking off my shirt and I’m the first one on the speaker dancing” claims this Algerian beauty. Sexy and rebellious, Rima defies the stereotypes placed on women of her culture.

This recently single bad girl knows how to work a room, enchant new guys, and handle her haters.
Ashley – Bartlett, IL
Ashley proudly proclaims to be “a white Snooki girl” and embraces her eccentric and quirky reputation.

A server at a tavern, Ashley is known for her outlandish behavior, complete lack of filter, and party girl antics.
Christina – Jersey City, NJ
Fiery, outspoken, and Puerto Rican, this bad girl is in her prime when it comes to boys, girls, parties, and drama. Christina likes to tempt boys as a “hobby” and loves the idea of a challenge. Tired of trying to mold herself into a good girl, this hard partying wild thing has been sent to disciplinary school and quit every job that stood in the way of having a good time.
Falen – Springfield, MA
This Middle Eastern girl is determined to rebel against her family’s strict moral code. After being injured in a car accident, Falen is ready to get back to her party girl ways. Spunky, goofy, and spoiled, Falen cannot wait to bring a new flavor to the Bad Girls House.

Like a kitten, Julie claims she’s “cute and lovable but if you piss me off I’ll claw your eyes out.” A former drama geek, Julie has left her awkward “fugly phase” behind and now possesses over the top self-esteem. Combining her arrogance with a quick sense of humor, she is all party and all mouth – all the time.
Erika – Chicago, IL
Erika, a Chicago based rapper, loves running Chicago’s party scene. Quick-witted, mischievous, and a notorious boyfriend stealer, Erika’s true passion is her music. Although she is a great friend to those who follow her lead, this bad girl can turn into your worst enemy if you cross her.
