Oxygen orders 'Love Games' reality dating spinoff of 'Bad Girls Club'
By Christopher Rocchio, 01/11/2010
Oxygen announced that it has ordered Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too, a new spinoff that will follow three former Bad Girls Club stars in their search for love.
The reality dating series will begin with third-season cast members Amber and Sarah and fourth-season cast member Kendra as they are introduced to a group of 13 bachelors.
Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too's season will then follow the suitors as they compete in a series of challenges and accompany the women on dates, with weekly eliminations ousting bachelors who fail to adequately demonstrate their affection.
The series will conclude with only one of the ladies and her selected suitor remaining.
"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," said Oxygen programming executive Amy Introcaso-Davis.
"Love Games gives our avid viewers the opportunity to watch their favorite Bad Girls find love in a fun and wildly entertaining way."
Comedian Bret Ernst will host the eight-episode series, which is currently slated to premiere in March.
Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too is being produced by Bunim-Murray Productions -- the same production company that produces Bad Girls Club. New Bad Girls Clubfourth-season episodes currently air in the Tuesdays at 10PM ET/PT timeslot on Oxygen.
The three former Bad Girls Club cast members appearing on Love Games -- and their Oxygen-supplied bios -- are:
- Amber, a 27-year-old from Scottsdale, AZ
Season three Bad Girls Club star Amber lived life in the house focused on fun and boy chasing. Her no holds barred approach to life and bubbly energy brings out the party atmosphere no matter where she goes. Amber keeps her dating life spicy with variety -- the nice guys bore this spotlight-loving bad girl quickly so she keeps the bad boys close by. This time around, she is searching for the perfect guy to call her own.
- Kendra, a 22-year-old from Charlotte, NC
Fresh off of season four of the Bad Girls Club, boy crazy Kendra is looking to tame her intense sexual appetite and get serious about finding "Mr. Right" as opposed to "Mr. Right Now." Kendra loves long-term relationships, but admits it takes a certain kind of guy to handle her. This pretty pageant girl, who is the rule breaking opposite of her perfect and obedient twin sister, is pursuing a degree in political science.
- Sarah, a 25-year-old from Milwaukee, WI
Married by 19 and divorced by 21, Sarah spent season three in the Bad Girls house making up for lost time -- indulging in countless nights of drinking and partying. Nowadays, guys have their work cut out for them when trying to catch the eye of Sarah. Between holding down two jobs and college, Sarah doesn't impress easily. Her type of guy exudes confidence but is also honest, fun, outgoing and wants to treat her like a princess. Sarah has grown tired of casual dating and would really like to settle down with someone special.
