Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos Dressed Up for ‘The White Lotus’ Finale

If there's one show that everybody's been talking about, it's The White Lotus.

The HBO series has garnered a ton of attention for its stacked cast (Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Steve Zahn, etc.), social satire and unpredictable plotlines. And it looks like the show has also found two fans in Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos.

The pair held a watch party for the season one finale last night, and they went all out. Ripa shared snaps from the extravagant event on her Instagram, including a post where she said, “We are gearing up for The White Lotus finale. Mahalo #whitelotus.”

As we can see in the photo, the event included themed snacks, cocktails and decorations to fit with the Hawaiian setting of The White Lotus. It appears that the couple may have even traveled to Aulani, a Disney resort and spa in Hawaii, to celebrate the occasion, given Ripa's tag on the photo.

The Live host shared another photo from the party on her Story, where she tagged The White Lotus producer, Albert Bianchini, and said, “#Chic.”

Ripa also shared an intimate snap with Consuelos right before the episode's premiere, where she said, “Let the countdown begin @instasuelos.”

The White Lotus follows the intersecting lives of a group of staff members and guests at a resort in Hawaii. Over the course of a week, this peaceful paradise quickly turns darker as new problems present themselves.

The HBO series has opened lots of discussion for its commentary on class and privilege, and last night's mind-blowing finale already has the internet buzzing. Fans of the anthology series can also get excited because it has been renewed for a second season, which will follow a completely new group of travelers at a different vacation setting.

We'll be keeping an eye out to see if Ripa and Consuelos throw a similar spectacle for the season two premiere.
