The Bad Place is another realm where humans who weren't "good enough" to enter The Good Place are sent after they die.

History Edit

The Bad Place has likely existed since the beginning of time (at the very least since humans existed) and is a hellish damnation for not only those that were evil in life but for those humans whose final point total wasn't high enough to enter The Good Place.

Entry Edit

Gaining entry into The Bad Place is very easy. According to Michael, from the moment of birth every action and decision that a human makes either had a positive or negative effect, thus affecting that human's overall point score total. The bigger the action, the bigger the point difference, but there is a catch. Simply doing good deeds is not enough to raise a human's point total, as their motivations must be pure, otherwise it is seen as a selfish act. From comments by Michael and Shawn, it appears that the simple fact of being from France or Florida is also enough to condemn one to The Bad Place. lol man cat

For a human to enter The Bad Place, their overall point total doesn't even have to be negative, it simply needs to not be high enough to enter The Good Place.

A notable exception being Mindy St. Claire who underwent a posthumous point spike and so was afforded The Medium Place as a compromise. In all other known cases, humans with point totals which were not considered high enough, even if in the hundreds of thousands, were sent to The Bad Place.

Inhabitants Edit

The Bad Place houses not only humans and Bad Janets but also Immortal Beings whose only purpose is to torture and inflict pain on the humans who reside there. It is assumed that Immortal Beings and Bad Janets may come and go as they please, but humans cannot.

Everyday Life Edit

Each day in The Bad Place is a hellish existence for the humans that reside there as they are tortured endlessly by Immortal Beings and Bad Janets, who seem to enjoy doing so.

Trivia Edit

  • A "normal" Bad Place neighborhood hasn't been seen yet, only Michael's experimental "Good Place" neighborhood.
