What's the story?

INVITE ONLY CABO is a reality series about a dream vacation with a diverse group of people that goes colorfully wrong. Dancer and celebrity stylist Larry Sims is taking a much needed a vacation, and has decided to invite individual and eclectic friends who normally don’t socialize with each other to join him at an extravagant mansion in Mexico. But when he brings together best friend Jermaine Britton, make up artist Kamani Alana, jealous CEO Bianca Banks, personal trainer Agu Ukaogo, and peacemaker Malaku Quisada, things get a little crazy. Adding to the fray is Emily Moses, Larry’s unpredictable friend from Australia. It’s supposed to be fun, but the experience turns out to be more challenging than he thought. 

Is it any good?

This voyeuristic and superficial series features lots of over-the-top behavior as people from different backgrounds and personalities come together and try to get along. While some women are competing for Larry’s attention, other cast members are just looking to hook up. Meanwhile, Emily Moses manages to be the one of the biggest sources of conflict.

The rivalries are predictable, and in between the strong (and often crude) sexual innuendo, there’s lots of boozing and fighting. And of course, all of this is happening in a luxurious tropical setting. If you like empty entertainment, then you’ll find it fun. However, Invite Only Cabo doesn’t offer much else to those who don’t. It might also you leave you questioning why it's on TV.
