After hosting ABC’s The Next Best Thing: Who Is the Greatest Celebrity Impersonator?, Michele Merkin is headed back to competitive reality TV. This time, however, she’ll be reprising her hosting duties on E!’s Party Monsters: Cabo, a new show that that will challenge event planners to throw the ultimate party.
Party Monsters: Cabo, which is expected to premiere on Friday, December 12 at 10pm ET/PT, will kick off with nine hopefuls who are brought to the LG Villa Cabo resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to find out who can throw the “ultimate party” for Hollywood celebrities that range from P. Diddy and Lil Jon to Carmen Electra and Brody Jenner.
Throughout the series, contestants will plan and present their party ideas to the show’s judging panel, including Next Best Thing host Merkin, in-house expert Brian Worely and a special celebrity guest. In the end, the last contestant will be given 24 hours to execute an event using the other contestants as assistants. The winner will also receive the position of “celebrity event planner” at the resort.
“This series has all the right elements for our audience — celebrity parties, cut-throat competition and nonstop drama,” E! programming executive Lisa Berger said in a statement. “The dynamic group of contestants and exciting roster of celebrities that we’ve attracted for this series are certain to hook viewers from the first episode.”
You can catch a sneak peek of Party Monsters: Cabo immediately after the premiere of Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood‘s second season on Sunday, November 30 at 11pm ET/PT.
Aside from The Next Best Thing, Michele Merkin is also credited for hosting Sand Blasters III: The Extreme S and Sculpting Championship on the Travel Channel, as well as individual episodes of E! News Daily, NBC’s For Love or Money, VH1’s Red Eye, The Movie Fan Show, The Love Report for Studios USA, Close-up Hollywood, Buy TV, Movie Watch and Attack of the Show.
