"Hugh Hefner invites everyone back into the exclusive world of Playboy through the eyes of his three Playboy models turned girlfriends: Holly, Kendra, and Bridget. Experience the luxurious life of the legendary Hugh and his ladies as they attend lavish parties, go on exotic trips and coordinate gorgeous (and steamy) photo shoots while living in the famous Playboy mansion.
The fifth season focuses on several different plotlines. Included amongst them are: Holly's special nationwide search of the perfect 55th Anniversary Playmate, Bridget's plans for a crazy Las Vegas wedding and her departure from the mansion to film a new series for the Travel Channel, and Kendra's participation in the world's sexiest softball game while also preparing for her own departure from the Playboy universe. This season, like previous ones, also features several celebrity appearances, including Anna Faris, Pamela Anderson, Stacy Burke, and Karissa and Kristina Shannon, two of Hugh's next girlfriends.
The most dramatic and emotional season so far, the fifth season of The Girls Next Door marks the final season to feature Hugh's original Girls Next Door girlfriends. At the end of the season, we get to see the actual departure of Bridget and Kendra, while number one girlfriend Holly didn't get a televised breakup -but she does allude to her impending breakup with Hugh.
The special features on this DVD set include a collection of features called "The Big Easy Does It," "Scubba, Scubba, Do!" and "Third Time's the Charming," which further document the lives and crazy happenings around the girls. There is also some absolutely hilarious commentary for each episode provided by Holly, Bridget, and Kendra. There are even deleted and bonus scenes that are just as amazing and ridiculous as the series itself.
I'm not really sure what it is about these girls that we love so much. Could it be because we envy them? Do the lives of these women appeal to some fantasy that we have? Do we enjoy seeing behind-the-scenes of Playboy? Or do we just like laughing at how utterly ridiculous these girls are?
While at times emotional and heartfelt, The Girls Next Door - Season Five marks the end of an era for the series and for Playboy. While this show is completely mindless entertainment, it is hilarious and Holly, Bridget, and Kendra will be missed. The series will still continue for at least another season, and the change in leading ladies could bring a fresh face to it -- or destroy it completely. Only time will tell."
It's over,sniff sniff :(

"So it's the last (REAL) season and time to say goodbye to Holly,Bridget and Kendra.The 3 quirky blondes,that after 5 fun seasons and commentaries you almost feel like you know personally. Season 5 is just as fun filled as the other seasons and wont disappoint.Even more nudity and high jinx too. The only complaint is that the last two "goodbye" episodes are left out and I hope that isn't because the people who make the dvds think if they put them on season 6 with those stupid twins that more people will buy season 6. I will not waste my money on the new girls next door! You absolutely cannot replace Holly,Bridget and Kendra.Maybe some watched the show for Hef,but it's my opinion that the Girls were the real stars!!! I'am only sad to see it end but wish them good luck with whatever they do in life."
Great Show until the End

"Season 5 of the Girls Next Door doesn't disappoint and of course the commentary of the girls for each episode is the icing on the cake (as Bridget likes to say). We have followed these 3 Girls during part of their exciting life at the Playboy Mansion and it helped to give some insight on what it's like to be one of Hef's girlfriends. With Kendra now being married, Bridget having her own Travel show and Holly just starting her stint on "Peepshow" in Vegas I can only hope that the next season with the new girlfriends will make us smile as these three did!"
RIPOFF Missing Episodes...

"Despite being advertised as complete, season 5 is missing several episodes, especially the final episodes. About as disappointing as buying a book with the last chapter missing. I have purchased every season so far, I won't be buying any more after this."
Great show, commentary should have been recorded later

"I think all GND fans agree that the main reason we buy the DVDs is for the commentary from the three girls and the behind the scenes scoop (Kendra identifying Audra as the VS giftcard thief). Unfortunately, for those of us who watched Season 4 I believe Holly said at the end that they would be back the following week to do their Season 5 commentary. At that time it was early December (based on things they said i.e. getting dresses for NYE, etc) so Holly's relationship with Criss was still fresh, Bridget was starting to film Bridget's Beaches, and Kendra wasn't engaged yet. I kinda wish they waited to do the commentary until March or April after things settled/changed a bit (DWTS, Holly/Criss breakup, etc). But regardless, this was a good season with lots of fun episodes and the commentary is still fun."
