Previously on Bad Girls All-Star Battle:
After being tested physically, mentally, emotionally and strategically, the
final four were left standing (Mehgan, “Rocky” Raquel, Sarah and Tiana) to
determine who will be $100,000 richer when this season is over.
Episode 10 - Winner Take All
Though all four girls
are on the precipice of winning this contest, the competitors seem relatively
peaceful and calm heading into the final Battle Challenge.
To make it to the
next phase of this finale, the girls will have to build a bridge over a pool of
mud. The planks needed, all featuring different shapes to lock into the beams,
are scattered throughout the area. The first set of planks is simply behind
them, while the second set needs to be pulled up a hill while the last bag
hangs high above the field. After retrieving the first bag of planks, Mehgan
has the hardest time putting the shapes together, leaving her far behind
alongside Tiana as Sarah and Rocky (in that order) pull ahead. Tiana eventually
catches up to the leaders, having to pull the heavy bag of planks up a steep hill.
Once again, it’s
Sarah and Rocky who lead the pack. Raquel quickly assembles phase two of the
bridge. Raquel eventually finds herself fighting from behind when she can’t
figure out how to untie a knot to release the planks.
With Tiana on her
heels and Sarah far ahead, Rocky has to refocus to eventually figure out the
complication. Though Rocky and Tiana are right behind her, Sarah created a big
enough lead to easily win this Battle Challenge, leaving Mehgan, Rocky, and
Tiana prone to elimination to create the final three. Mehgan, arguably the
smartest of the final four, can’t believe how hard it was to match simple
To give the girls a
chance to relax, Ray J. announces the girls will get to party by the pool. This
news doesn’t take Mehgan’s focus off politicking to Sarah in hopes of getting
rid of Rocky to make the competition that much easier. It also can’t stop Tiana
from feeling like a failure and having no chance of winning.
But forget that competitive
stuff, lets party.
It becomes painfully
obvious to Rocky something’s up when she sees Mehgan and Sarah (rivals)
giggling with each other. Rocky storms off upon seeing this budding
relationship, with Sarah following soon after. Sarah admits that she’s thinking
about sending Raquel home, angering her toughest competition. Elimination time
comes and with only four voters, there’s a good chance we could see a tie
featuring Rocky, Mehgan or Tiana. To the shock of Raquel, she attains two
votes, meaning Sarah and/or Tiana had to vote for her. Did Sarah have to break
All three other girls
voted Raquel out of the competition, meaning the two ladies Raquel stuck up for
and helped get this far have caused her demise! That’s some shady ish right
there. With Rocky gone, it’s pretty much an even playing field heading into the
final challenge. The first two stages are colored puzzles, featuring an
elimination after the second stage depending on who finishes the puzzles first
and second. The last stage will see the remaining two girls breaking through
tiles with a sledgehammer to find matching numbers to a code that can unlock
the appointed box holding the Season 2 All-Star Battle crown and becoming the
winner of a good chuck of change.
All three girls dash
up the hill to their first puzzle, which is similar to a rubix cube unfolded
and straightened as the girls have to lift and turn boxes so one single color
is represented with each box. Sadly for Mehgan, she admittedly over-thinks the
situation, giving Tiana and Sarah the chance to run for phase two of this final
challenge. The next puzzle features the girls having to lift these
“Tetris”-like blocks to create a staircase.
Like today’s previous
challenges, Sarah is able to figure out the puzzle first, leaving Tiana and
Mehgan to scramble in an attempt to avoid elimination. The third puzzle (which
has to be revealed by four ropes) Sarah and eventually the rest of the girls
have to figure out features pink and purple blocks being moved from one side to
the other. But they couldn’t backtrack or double move a block; only single pace
moves can occur or you’ll have to start all over again. Sarah proves just how
tricky the puzzle can be, having to reset after her first two tries. Mehgan
gains some leeway by copying Sarah’s puzzle, bringing this contest to an even
To the shock of
everyone, Tiana is the first one to finish. It’s down to Sarah and Mehgan. Who
will join Tiana in the final stretch?
Though the “Smash
& Grab” portion of this competition seems simple, the tiles that might be a
necessity to smash are numerous. Tiana, looking for the numbers “7-7-1-3“ finds
herself neck and neck with Sarah - who seemingly hits a lucky streak of finding
her numbered tokens almost immediately. Then it happens.
Tiana makes a break
for her lockbox.
In her first
challenge victory, Tiana has won the biggest prize of them all.
Feel-Good story. Though Tiana did Raquel dirty by voting her out of the
competition (everyone knows Rocky was only voting off Mehgan), the New York
native was still a sentimental favorite. Not angry and unruly like her time in
the “Bad Girls Club” house, Tiana spent her time talking about making a better
life for her brothers while consistently coming up short during challenges.
When the chips seemed completely down, Tiana finally pulled off the big one.
Rocky getting eliminated. No one worked as hard to make it as far as she did
than Raquel. Without Rocky on their team, there’s no chance Sarah or Tiana
would’ve made it to the finale. Raquel deserved to be in the final three, but
manipulative minds and fear cost her a chance to achieve her season-old

Mehgan. Mehgan convinced Sarah to keep her around by reiterating how poorly the
once favorite to win had done throughout the season. And Mehgan lived up to her
word as she flopped and scrambled through all of the final challenges; finding
herself in last place time and time again until it was all over. Rocky proved
fate took her away from a potential season one victory. Mehgan proved she
would’ve done poorly no matter if she was eliminated at the season’s beginning
(like during season one) or the end.
All-Star of the
Sarah. The eventual runner-up showcased mental aptitude very few give her
credit for having. Puzzles proved to be Sarah’s forte, giving her a lead over
her competition throughout most of this final challenge. Like Tiana, Sarah
finally found a groove during the last hour and showed how she was true
