The Vow: What to Know About Ex-NXIVM Member Mark Vicente
HBO's The Vow introduces viewers to a slew of people who were involved in Keith Raniere's NXIVM cult, including filmmaker Mark Vicente. As he tells his story in the documentary, he was introduced to NXIVM through its leadership seminars before getting pulled deeper into the organization and rising up through the hierarchy to a position of power, before learning of the cult's real activities and turning informant. Vicente — along with his wife, another former NXIVM member — is one of the main "characters" in The Vow, and it's easy to see why, given the depth of information he had on the organization. Here's what you need to know about him and what his life looks like now.
