I must admit that I wasn’t at all excited for Bad Girls Club 7 when I first saw the trailer. It looked like more of the usual senseless fighting.
Yes, senseless fighting is what Bad Girls Club is about, but the quality of the show had diminished in recent seasons, thanks to Oxygen choosing to pop new seasons out like bubble gum balls out of a bubble gum machine.
Bad Girls Club 5 and 6 brought us some of the funniest moments of the franchise and some great Bad Girls (Kristen, Morgan, Willmarie, Nikki) but in *my* opinion, both seasons sucked ass overall.
The BGC 5/6 casts had a lot of fillers and bed warmers. BGC 6 - with the exception of Willmarie and Nikkie - offered nothing but a bunch of drones following Char around and kissing her ass. Though Char was great TV, she really didn’t have any adversaries to butt heads with - which made the show really boring. The only thing that kept BGC6 alive in my opinion, was the Nikki/WilMarie fights, which were always a joy to watch.
Bad Girls Club 5 was a much better season than Bad Girls Club 6, but the fact that so many of the cool bad girls left so early (Morgan, Cat) while extras like Erica and Ashley stayed to the very end, killed what could’ve been a great show.
It was at exactly that point I began drifting away from the show. I mean, it’s ok for BGC to have one or two fillers, but when the majority of the cast is jam packed with ‘em, you have yourself a trainwreck on your hands.
This is why I was skeptical of and avoided Bad Girls Club 7 for so many weeks. But, one night I was bored out of my mind and decided to watch the first episode. I’m sure as hell glad I did because that was one of the best Premieres.
Still, I wasn’t yet convinced as previous seasons had started out great and then descended to shit. However, I kept going with it and never once, did Season 7 get to a point where the entertainment died down or dulled out. It was a fun, bitch slapping, hair pulling, thrill ride that managed to keep up the speed until the very end.
It’s no mystery why, eventually, I enjoyed this season so much… the cast was amazing! I don’t feel like there were any fillers.
Yeah, I know some of you are going “WHAT? TASHA AND PRISCILLA WERE FILLERS!”. No, they weren’t fillers to me. I HATED THEIR GUTS and if they were fillers I wouldn’t have enough energy to hate them, hell I probably wouldn’t remember them.
Yes they were weak and hardly bad girls, but they both played a role in making Bad Girls Club 7 an exciting and engaging show, because I literally wanted to jump through the screen and slap them.
Stasi and Shelly were also EXCELLENT choices as they both kept up the drama.
I don’t watch Bad Girls Club to like everybody. Season 2 is my favorite season simply because it was so diverse. There was the group I loved and the group I hated going at it and THAT is what made it so entertaining.
Season 7 did a great job at mimicking this. To me, two cliques going at it is more entertaining than everyone following one girl around.Everyone had their rightful place this season.
Another part of the casting I liked was that the girls felt a little more real. Yes, this is reality TV and we all know bitches play shit up for the camera, but I felt for the most part, the girls were themselves.
I think if I met Tiara somewhere, she would be the same cool chick she was on the show. If I met Judi on the street, she would be the same nut I saw on TV. If I met Tasha in the clinic I’d still feel the urge to push her face into a meat grinder… you get the point.
Also props to the producers for casting Shelly and Stasi; I’m tired of all these pencil thin chicks, it’s nice to see some big girls representing as well.
Season 7 just felt like a return to what made Bad Girls Club good, trashy fun. Kinda felt like going back home again.
I hope Season 8 continues upward but idk, I’m not hearing too many good things about it. Yeah, the trailer was jam packed with fights, but Season 6 had a lot of fights too. It’s not the number of physical fights that determine if a season is good, but more so if it has a good, diverse cast.
