 About Gem's Carnival Life

What We Are All About

A Place for HBCU

Every year, hundreds of thousands of attendees participate in Carnival, whether they choose to partake in the festivities of Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia, Barbados, Jamaica. Each Island hosts its very own version of Carnival and no two are the same. Carnival is a worldwide phenomenon, circling South America, Canada, Japan, the U.S., and the Caribbean Islands and now Africa. This unforgettable event celebrates the liberation of Island people from slavery and honors freedom of choice. The word “Carnival” is derived from combining two Latin terms: carne, meaning flesh, and vale, meaning farewell. Over the years, Carnival has become the spectacle of joy we see today. Bringing together the arts, political commentary, and masquerade fantasy—and our new endeavor, Gem’s Carnival Life, invites you to join the party. Follow us on our journey throughout the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and South America.


Gem’s Carnival Life is a reality show about finding Love in Carnival. This show is a travel show with a eight to twelve episode series of ten HBCU student cast from around the US, who experience the good, the bad and the indifferent finding love in Carnival. Some Carnivals are celebrated in Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados, Japan, Notting Hill and many more. The students will experience the Carnival lifestyle of food, beautiful beaches, exciting excursions and sexy people who live in these exotic Islands.


In each Island or country the cast will stay in one of a kind Villas, living together between one to two weeks at a time all around the world. They will travel and experience each culture, the love of the music, and the sexiness it brings within relationships and how trust, loyalty and love is pushed to the limit. Whether these students fall in love with each other or find a lover on the Island, we'll see if finding love in Carnival is possible.
