Wow, this series might give Susan B. Anthony second thoughts.

TV Review: Bad Girls Club Season Five Premiere – “Welcome to Miami Bitch”

Yet another season of female carnage begins as Oxygen finds seven more suckers lacking self-worth, personal dignity, and family pride from across the United States who think they are “bad” because they have no qualms about acting idiotic on television. I’d like to see Maury or somebody scare these girls straight.

The fifth season, which debuts on August 3, has moved the series from Los Angeles to Miami. In order of introduction, the participants are:

Morgan – Miami, FL 21, “The Uber Bitch.” She thinks everyone wants to look like her, although she appears to want to look like Kim Kardashian.

Lea – South Beach, FL, 22, “The South Beach Rebel.” She is tattooed and brags about having an affair with a married man for a year and a half while also having a live-in boyfriend. She’s bisexual.

Danielle – Massapequa, NY, 21, “The Scrapper.” Identifies herself as a “Jewrican” and seems a bit of a tomboy.

Catya – Philadelphia, PA, 24, “The Elite Player.” She name-drops being in a relationship with rapper Beans, although I’m not sure who that is supposed to impress.

Danielle and Catya meet and seem pleasant with each other but the cattiness soon begins as Catya reveals in an interview Danielle has cheap clothes.

Brandi – 26, Inglewood, CA, “The Sneaky Stripper.” Not sure why she’s sneaky as that information comes out rather soon. She says she’s a lesbian 90% of time.

Erica – 25, Anaheim, CA, “The Trash Talking Cheerleader.”

Aside from the alcohol, for some inexplicable reason, the girls decide to turn on last-to-arrive Kristen (23, Boston, MA, “The Pageant Princess”) and take off all her bedding. When she gets to the house, they immediately decide they don’t like her. Erica says she doesn’t like Kristen’s annoying voice and within minutes, champagne is thrown in faces and glasses are broken. Kristen earns respect from some of the girls for standing up for herself.

The girls want to go out but Morgan thinks the club they choose is lame. She also says the girls are ugly and dress badly and stays home. Catya’s bags haven’t shown up so she doesn’t go either. Kristen is a wild, drunken mess. Her dress constantly inches up and she flashes her nether region repeatedly. The other girls tire of being her babysitter.

The house is divided after first day — Morgan, Catya, and Kristen on one side, calling themselves the Pretty Girls, against the four others. They tease Danielle, calling her “Dirty D” which she doesn’t like.

The Pretty Girls hit the club and the others, sans Lea, pack Morgan’s stuff and put her out because they are tired of her acting like a bitch. They take Morgan’s mannequin and smash it at the end of a pier. They also give her the new nickname “Whore-gan.” They lock the doors and prepare for a fight, which appears to be what they get as slaps are thrown and bodies get pulled apart and down staircases.

If it’s this bad on Night #2, it should be a long trainwreck of a season as the season trailer indicates at the end of the episode.
