In brief: Death...
Overdose implies deliberate intent.
..Seek help and don't do it! irreparable life-altering esophageal damage may occur if you survive -and that can be miserable indeed.

There is NO health benefit in taking even small doses of chlorine bleach, other than to sterilize potentially tainted drinking water. BE VERY CAREFUL HERE!

In brief: Usually nothing
Comercial chlorine bleach does not taste very good and an overdose (high volume) takes a conscious effort consistent with intent of self harm and emergancy medical care is needed.
..911. However amounts inadvertantly swallowed during splash or from hands to mouth will not require any medical care at all.
