Mariah Torres is one of the cast members fans met on Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard. Following on from the success of Bravo’s reality TV series Summer House, the network decided to spice things up within the franchise by introducing a new spin-off series Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard — which chronicles the vacationing experience of a group of young black professionals, who have been pals for quite some time. The series occurs at Martha’s Vineyard, an island south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Over the years, the site has become a summertime haven for African Americans. While some cast members are familiar with the area, this would be a first-time experience for others. Nevertheless, one thing that was guaranteed ahead of the season premiere was a lot of drama between the cast members. When the season premiere aired on May 7, fans were introduced to a surprise 13th cast member, Mariah Torres — a longtime friend of Jasmine Ellis Cooper. Mariah, not credited as a main cast member, has lived with cast members in the house since the first episode. Let’s find out more about the 13th house guest, Mariah Torres.
Mariah Torres’ Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard
Mariah and Jasmine have been friends since they met in college. She also knows most of the Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard cast members, so it’s no surprise that Mariah easily slotted into the group. Mariah joins in the fun with Jasmine and the house guests but is up for trouble when it comes. In the trailer for the season, fans saw Mariah having a heated exchange with her best friend, Jasmine. The argument degenerated into a massive rift between them. Later in the clip, Mariah tells the Bravo cameras,
“I am mourning my friendship of 12 years.”
Although the season is already underway, things are still pretty calm in the Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard beach house, with most cast members still trying to understand each other. However, Mariah is already setting boundaries and letting all the other cast members know what exactly she is about. Fans quickly took a liking to Mariah on the show, appreciating her authenticity and expressive nature.
During Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard episode 2, Mariah clashed with Bria Fleming. The latter put her dog’s laundry with Mariah’s without giving her a heads-up or asking her permission. In other parts of episode 2, Mariah introduces everyone to an exciting family tradition called the “moon mass.” Although unusual, the housemates oblige her and gather around a fire while Mariah leads them in the “spiritual practice.”
