Season 8 of Summer House will premiere on Bravo on Thursday, February 22. The upcoming season may be the most anticipated to date, considering it’s coming on the heels of Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard‘s shocking breakup. Several cast members have teased that fans will have more answers about the breakup when the season airs. We have a lot of questions going into Summer House Season 8, so let’s unpack them together.

What Really Happened With Carl and Lindsay?


What happened with Carl and Lindsay is the number one question on fans’ minds. Although the two have spoken about their breakup in the press, their stories differ. We’re unsure whose story is more credible at this point and we’re hoping Season 8 will provide us more clarity on what led to their downfall.

Linsay has been open about feeling “blindsided” by the split. She appeared on an episode of The Viall Files in November, where she said her ex humiliated her by breaking up with her in front of cameras.

The teaser trailer, released earlier this month, showed a different story. The three-minute video included audio of the former couple fighting and a clip of a minister telling Carl he wouldn’t marry him and Lindsay.

Kyle Cooke also shared his thoughts on the split in an interview with E! News in October. The Loverboy founder told the outlet that Lindsay and Carl have had problems for a while.

“It’s no secret that they’ve been in constant couple’s therapy ever since they basically started dating,” he told the outlet. “From my perspective, there were times where I was like, man, it’s almost like the only time they could communicate on any given week was in therapy. It’s almost like they couldn’t even communicate anymore without a third party,” he added. Yikes.

There seems to be a few contradicting narratives out there, so we’ll have to see how things shake out in Season 8.

Who Is Newcomer West Wilson?

West Wilson is the newest addition to the Summer House. West is a 28-year-old sports journalist who was recently laid off due to staff changes. According to his Instagram, West splits his time between New York and Miami. West is single so he will bring some fun to the house.

The newcomer seems like a total catch. However, according to, he struggles with commitment. Hmm. We also saw him asking Kyle if he had to “only hit on the single girls” in the trailer, so he could definitely cause some trouble this season. We’re curious to learn more about West.

What’s Going on With Kyle & Amanda?

Kyle and Amanda Batula always have drama and it looks like this season won’t be any different. In the teaser trailer, we saw the couple fighting quite a bit. At one point, Ciara Miller told Amanda she doesn’t think she has an identity outside of Kyle. Ouch.

Could this be the end for Kyle and Amanda? We doubt it, but we still have many questions about what led to all the fights we saw in the trailer.

Are Paige And Craig Any Closer to Compromising?

We love Paige DeSorbo and Craig Conover together but they can’t do long distance forever. In the past, we’ve seen the two struggle to combine their lives. Craig’s life is in South Carolina and Paige’s life is in New York. The Giggly Squad host has said she would be okay moving down south eventually, but the thought alone seems to drive her to tears, so we’re not so sure about that.

In the trailer, we see Paige yelling, “You can’t compromise on anything.” We’re assuming the statement was directed at her boyfriend because the camera showed a close-up of Craig right after. However, production could be purposely misleading us to think the couple is in trouble. We’re super curious to see if the two come to a resolution this season and take a step forward in their relationship.
