Meet the new girls:
Alex, 22 @alexandriarice_ Sherwood, WI This college graduate is a wild party girl with a penchant for athletes. Alex is a model and is always dressed to impress. She even has a personal stylist on-call to help her get dressed daily. If you cross her, she isn't afraid to tell it like it is and will find a way to get revenge. She credits her trust issues, especially with women, to her rocky relationship with her father, and hopes this opportunity will allow her to build more confidence in people.
Alyssa, 24 @IAMREDDCHICK954 Ft. Lauderdale, FL Better known as "REDD," Alyssa is an outgoing comedian with a fearful demeanor. Her intimidating size gains respect from most, but her tough exterior only disguises her inner vulnerability. Although she is proud of her plus size persona, she constantly feels like she's competing with skinny girls. Growing up a daddy's girl, Alyssa's world was changed when her father walked out on their family after her mom was left paralyzed from a routine surgery. She is entering the BGC mansion to change her reputation and, for the first time in her life let people see her softer side.
Aysia, 22 @love_aysia Houston, TX Aysia is a feisty bisexual party girl who isn't afraid to break all the rules. A shameless flirter, she goes after what she wants because it's her way or the highway. Aysia won't answer to anyone and has often let her pride and anger get the best of her in the past. After a rocky childhood, Aysia hopes her time in the BGC house will help her confront and manage her anger and abandonment issues.
Britt, 24 @msbrittb_ Louisville, KY With her loud personality, Britt is always the life of the party and works as a shot girl to fill her appetite for money and alcohol. She's a self-proclaimed hustler who demands respect and believes she has the ability to convince people to do anything she wants. Growing up wasn't easy for her; in her mom's absence, she designated herself as the mama bear to her siblings and was taxed with the responsibility of being their perfect role model. Although, she knows she hasn't always been perfect, she hopes to use the time in the BGC house to focus on herself.
Jada, 28 @Jada5starz Jamaica, NY This pint size rapper is a quick-witted, hot-tempered bartender who knows how to stand her ground. Newly single, Jada craves attention and is ready for some non-stop fun. After an unstable upbringing, Jada practically raised herself and has been on her own since she was 14. Looking for a fresh start, she is looking to tame her inner rage and wants to go to school for music producing.
Jonica, 25 @Jc_boo Saint Louis, MS With her blue afro and big personality, Jonica also known as Blu is hard to miss in a crowd. She is well-known in the St. Louis party scene and is always looking for a good time. She has a competitive streak and played basketball in college while obtaining her bachelor's degree. She has struggled with intimate relationships and earned herself a reputation as a player and home wrecker. During her time in the BGC house, she hopes to get the root of her commitment issues.
Loren, 23 @LO_LONDON Mobile, AL A southern girl with lots of charm and wild ways, Loren considers herself the ultimate "Turn Up" party girl. She's a die-hard Alabama football fan and has no problem fitting in with the guys, but can easily clash with the girls. Used to getting what she wants, Loren is spoiled rotten and has extravagant taste and style to match her attitude. Loren is a serious "Daddy's Girl" and in her eyes no one compares to him. Her type of guy is confident with lots of swag, but she refuses to fall in love until her father is out of prison in 2015 so he can walk her down the aisle.
