Format

Alumni from previous seasons of The Bad Girls Club are "looking for the man of their dreams." It takes place in one of the original "Bad Girl" houses used to film previous seasons. Three "bad girls" have a choice of several bachelors to explore love, friendships, etc. Each week features a variety of challenges and group dates. As the show goes on, the dates become more solo while the girls "pick the man of their dreams."[3]

In season 1 of Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too, thirteen bachelors compete for the love of three "bad girls." They would compete in series of challenges to be deemed "trophy winner." As "trophy winner," the bachelor could pick dates, have vulnerability from elimination, alone time with a "bad girl," etc. Elimination took place at the "Bad Girls VIP Room" at a local club. During elimination, all three "bad girls" choose one bachelor each that they think to be reckless, lack of interest, etc. The bachelors would sell themselves to the "bad girls" on why they should remain in the competition. The "bad girls" then deliberate and pick which bachelor to go.

Introduced in season 2, bad girls will now have to compete to be "HBIC (Head Bad Girl in Charge)." The "HBIC" puts the bachelors up for eliminations and picks the dates of the other girls. She can start flirting with any of the other girls' dates. The "HBIC" chooses three bachelors to put up for elimination. This is when she picks other "bad girls'" bachelors of liking. It usually starts drama. The other two "bad girls" have to vote on which bachelor leaves. If there is no agreement, the "HBIC" gets to pick which bachelor is eliminated.

Amy Introcaso-Davis, former Senior Vice President of Oxygen,[4] said, "Over the successful run of the Bad Girls Club series, the show’s die-hard fan base has demonstrated an insatiable interest in the dating lives of these flirty and outrageously energetic girls. Love Games gives our avid viewers the opportunity to watch their favorite "Bad Girls" find love in a fun and wildly entertaining way."[5]

Danielle "Dani" Victor, Camilla Poindexter, and Amy Cieslowski from Season 8 are the official cast of Season 4.[6]
