Meet the Bad Girls:
Alyssa “REDD” Carswell (Season 12 – Chicago) @IAMREDDCHICK954
REDD’s intimidating persona gains respect from most, but her tough exterior only disguises her inner vulnerability. Her time in Chicago taught her that she's not always right and that teamwork can go a long way. REDD hopes to use this opportunity back in the mansion to work on taming her temper and redeeming her actions from the reunion.
Camilla Poindexter (Season 8- Las Vegas) @iamcamillap
Dubbed “Cali Cutthroat,” Camilla is known for taking the BGC house by storm with her spicy attitude during her short-lived stay in Sin City. A self-proclaimed independent woman, she's currently modeling and making a name for herself in Hollywood. Camilla’s no stranger to the spotlight and is moving back into the mansion to work on controlling her anger and not just being seen as pretty, but as an intelligent woman. She wants to prove to the world that’s she’s more than a bad girl.
Danni Victor (Season 8 – Las Vegas) @xxodanielle
At barely 5 feet tall, people underestimate Danni until they are faced with her sharp tongue. After a string of bad relationships, she recognizes her tendency to self-sabotage and hopes that another go in the mansion will help her work on establishing healthy bonds. But without Gabi, her twin sister and business partner for their online clothing boutique Not So Hollywood, Danni will have to face her issues on her own.
Jada Looney, (Season 12- Chicago) @Jada5starz
This quick-witted pint size rapper knows how to stand her ground. She practically raised herself and has been on her own since she was 14 after an unfortunate upbringing. She learned a lot from her time in Chicago but knows she has room for improvement. Taking a break from her new album to go back to the mansion, Jada wants to learn how to open up and trust others.
Judi Jackson (Season 7 – New Orleans) @JUDiJAiKRAZi
As an only child, Judi is used to being the center of attention and expects to be treated that way. She is always emotional and will undoubtedly be the first one in the house brought to tears. This “Creole Star” has been known from time to time to cast a voodoo spell on her housemates. Judi wants to become the woman her mother expects her to be, but knows she has a lot of work to do in order to curb her partying ways.
Julie Ofcharsky (Season 9 – Mexico) @JulieOfcharsky
A former drama geek who left her awkward “fugly” phase behind, Julie showed her self-esteem and arrogance in Mexico as the ultimate schemer of the house. She holds high expectations of people and feels others don’t live up to her standards. Heading back into the mansion one more time, Julie hopes to work on her negative attitude.
Natalie Nunn (Season 4 – Los Angeles) @missnatalienunn
Known for her “I run LA socialite” persona, Natalie knows she’s addicted to fame and loves the Hollywood lifestyle. Now living with her husband in Northern California, she has stepped out of the spotlight and wants to show her family and friends that she’s a different person. Natalie wants to be respected as a business woman and is back to remind the newer girls that she is still the baddest of them all.
Rocky Santiago (Season 10 – Atlanta) @prettygrl_rocky
From a small town in California to the big city of Atlanta, Rocky made her mark in the mansion, after joining the house mid-season. She isn’t afraid of causing controversy with anyone who tries to get in her way. Ready to trade in morning hangovers for studying, Rocky wants to turn her life around and prepare her for her next adventure, college. She also plans to use her time in the mansion to finally come out to her father.
Sarah Oliver (Season 11 – Miami) @sarahSOoliver
Bootylicious and brainy, Sarah has done everything from modeling and acting to flipping houses, but she currently stays busy as the CEO of her own company, SO Enterprises. Sarah is known for being high-maintenance, confrontational and having a short fuse. She often finds herself acting first and asking questions later. After a recent breakup, Sarah hopes to work on establishing healthy relationships with men, starting with her father.
