Since the beginning of Bravo's hit reality series Summer House, plenty of cast members, including Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke, have had relationships with fellow costars. For most of the show, viewers have witnessed several hookups between these two, which led to many fans shipping Lindsay and Carl together. Though they tested the waters in Season 4, things didn't work out at the time due to Carl's battle with alcoholism.
Fortunately, the pair maintained a friendly relationship, and in October 2021, Lindsay told Us Weekly that she and Carl "hang out all the time," "live in the same building," and are "really, really close."
Interesting ... you may be wondering, how close? Well, not only are Lindsay and Carl back together, but they've taken a huge step in their relationship. Keep reading to learn all about their rekindled romance.
Carl and Lindsay are engaged!
The Summer House couple became engaged on Aug. 27, 2022, People reported. Evidently, the proposal went down at Southhampton's Dune Beach — and yes, it was filmed for Season 7 of the Bravo show. Paul took Lindsay to the beach under the guise of attending a group bonfire. But when they got there, a picnic was set up for just the two of them.
"I was so surprised, I'm still in shock!" Lindsay told People.
"It was quite the whirlwind throwing off Lindsay," Carl added. "She's a tough one to catch off guard!"
In January 2022, Carl Radke confirmed he was Lindsay Hubbard again.
On the Jan. 17, 2022, episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Carl confirmed their relationship to the titular host, saying they were officially "girlfriend-boyfriend," therefore debunking Lindsay's claims to Page Six of there being no talks of a label.
Speaking on what sparked a romance between him and Lindsay again, Carl said, "This was the culmination toward the end of the summer, Kyle and Amanda’s wedding, obviously there’s love in the air."
He added, "That was definitely where it was kind of like ... there were some feels, and I was looking at her differently. I was holding back a little bit just because I was scared, and it’s a scary thing pursuing your best friend."
Carl believes his sobriety helped him rekindle his romance with Lindsay.
Carl credits his sobriety as a significant factor in making his relationship with Lindsay work.
"Yeah, I think because I'm clear-headed, I'm a little more composed, I have patience, and I'm able to communicate a little bit more effectively, which I think for her is important because she likes consistency," Carl stated. "When I'm sober, I'm just very consistent, which is what she needs."
Carl continued to tell Andy, "It's worked out really well. We're in a new space, I'm in a great place. I mean, listen, we have an amazing friendship that has grown so much over these years."
"But in the last year of my sobriety, my priorities are different, and I just really enjoyed where we are right now. We're having a lot of fun," Carl said before his voice cracked due to nerves.
He concluded, "We're really happy. She's my best friend, she's got my back, and we respect each other, which I think is huge for a relationship." OK wow, we really hope these two are in it for the long run, because they seem so perfect for each other!
Season 7 of Summer House does not yet have a premiere date — but we've got our fingers crossed for early 2023.
