While fans of bad behavior may not have a new season of "Bachelor Pad" on ABC to enjoy this summer, Oxygen has the hook-up. Spinning out of their popular "Bad Girls Club" series, it's time to up the "bad" by adding a competition factor. Enter fourteen fan-favorites for "Bad Girls All-Star Battle," along with one bad boy hosting, Ray J.
And while there's actual challenges and competitions -- as well as a $100,000 cash prize at the end of it -- the real battle fans are likely tuning in for is the one between the women. “It’s not [the girls’] fault the game is so low-rent that if it were a housing unit, it would be a cardboard box on the street," said the New York Daily News. "Nor is it their fault that most viewers very likely enjoy the show not for the nominal competition segments, but for the trash-talking in between.”
It didn't disappoint in this first episode, either, with Natalie "I Run L.A." Nunn making the most noise. When she found out that her team had thrown the very first competition just so they could eliminate her, she decided to take her fate into her own hands and walk out before she could get voted out. "It’s like always attack Natalie! But I still went hard for my f***ing team!” she said. "I’m always the bad guy.”
She did have a back-up plan, though it wasn't explained and made zero sense. "I can fly to Africa and get that money in five seconds! I’m international, bitch!” How exactly would that work, Natalie?
Ultimately, she saved on air fare and returned to the game, where she was promptly nominated for elimination. Even though this should have been expected -- remember why they threw the challenge? -- Natalie nevertheless went crazy, punching and breaking a plasma screen TV. Even after all that, though, Natalie wasn't eliminated.
The competition -- and fighting -- continues on "Bad Girls All-Star Battle," Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Oxygen.
