Each season of Bad Girls Club begins with an Opening Fight. Here, viewers are shown the biggest and most intense physical altercation of the season, usually in terms of which would cause the most drama (as opposed to which would be the end result of drama). The program would then go back to a the beginning, opening up the show as normal. This fight usually gives viewers an idea of who is going to be the most dramatic, theatrical girl in the house, and who's appearance will cause the most drama. It also gives the viewer an idea on which girls will likely form their own cliques and/or which girls may be considered outcasts. This altercation draws in many viewers and keeps them wondering what will happen next.

- Season 10, however, holds the record for the longest amount of time until the opening fight took place, having occured in the 11/12th episode.
- Season 15 is currently the only season to not feature an originally aired opening fight.
