New Spin-off Hosted By Comedian Bret Ernst Features Three Former "Bad Girls" Competing For The Man of Their Dreams

PASADENA, CA, January 10, 2010 � Cupid's arrow strikes as Oxygen debuts the new original series "Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too" � a spin-off of the hit reality series "Bad Girls Club" � in March. The dating competition series, "Love Games" features three former "Bad Girls Club" stars -- Amber (season three), Kendra (season four) and Sarah (season three) vying for the man of their dreams. The ladies bring their feisty ways back to the airwaves in search of love from a pool of 13 eligible suitors. Comedian Bret Ernst ("Wild West Comedy Show") hosts the eight one-hour episode series.

"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 Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President, Programming and Development for Oxygen. "�Love Games' gives our avid viewers the opportunity to watch their favorite Bad Girls find love in a fun and wildly entertaining way."

Each week Amber, Kendra and Sarah, have the group of bachelors competing for their attention in a series of off-the-wall challenges and entertaining group dates. The girls must try to put their bad aside in an attempt to work together to narrow the field and identify the guy that's most ideal for them. The men that don't catch their eye and win their heart are eliminated weekly. The games get steamy as the men try to woo the ladies with an array of alluring talents ranging from romantic serenades to impressing the girls with their cooking prowess and physical stamina during a lively beach challenge. In the end, only one Bad Girl and her beau will be left standing.

Meet the lovelorn Bad Girls:

Amber, 27 � 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, 22 - 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, 25 � 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.

Comedian Bret Ernst can regularly be seen headlining at top clubs across the country, and has earned the sought after honor of marquee status on the Sunset Strip. This New Jersey native will next appear in his own half hour television special this February. Most recently his stand up was showcased on "One Mic Stand" and "Comics Without Borders." He recently appeared in the Vince Vaughn feature film "Wild West Comedy Show." The film documents Ernst with Vaughn and three other comedians as they perform to sold out crowds in a 30-night 30-venue tour across America. On the small screen, he has a recurring character on "Weeds" and has guest starred on "CSI: NY." Ernst currently resides in Los Angeles.
