Summer House Season 6

BRAVO’S FAVORITE SUMMER CREW IS BACK WHEN “SUMMER HOUSE” RETURNS ON MONDAY, JANUARY 17 AT 9PM ET/PT 

The temperature isn’t the only thing heating up this Summer! Bravo is heading back to the Hamptons for season six of “Summer House,” premiering on Monday, January 17 at 9pm ET/PT. After spending last summer quarantined together, the housemates are back to their regular routine of hustling during the week in NYC and spending their weekends out East with epic parties, dramatic love triangles and of course, rosé all day. Returning this summer are Lindsay Hubbard, Paige DeSorbo, Kyle Cooke, Amanda Batula, Carl Radke, Danielle Olivera, Ciara Miller and Luke Gulbranson. The housemates are joined by new friends Andrea Denver, Mya Allen and Alex Wach and special appearances are made throughout the season by Craig Conover and Austen Kroll of Bravo’s “Southern Charm. For a sneak peek, click here.

Coming up this season:

  • At a major crossroads in her life, the usually ambitious and determined Lindsay Hubbard is hesitant on what her next steps are. After being friend-zoned by Austen in Vermont, Lindsay continued to date Jason in the city until she experienced the biggest personal drama in her life yet. Unsure if she wants to continue things with Jason or date around this summer, Lindsay is confronted by some of her housemates that her “Hot Hubbs Summer” behavior might be getting a little too hot.
  • Paige DeSorbo is living her best life. Soon after leaving Vermont, her long-term crush Craig Conover became single and she doesn’t lose the opportunity to explore a potential relationship with him. However, upon entering the summer, Paige learns that her past-fling Andrea will also be joining the house and she is eager to see if their chemistry is still as hot as before. She is definitely smitten with both of these men… but after learning Craig might be hooking up with a well-known celebrity, she has no issues showing him that she has plenty of options of her own.
  • Last summer, Kyle Cooke and fiancé Amanda were doing better than ever, but living and working together for the past year has clearly taken its toll and the two hit their lowest point yet. Being that this is the last summer before he ties the knot, Kyle is determined to go big or go home. With many of the housemates already doubting their wedding will even happen, Kyle is forced to get his priorities in check or he could end up going home…alone.
  • Keeping busy by working and raising a litter of puppies, Amanda Batula has been doing everything and anything but wedding planning. With only a few weeks until the big day, her pre-wedding glow is dulled by her and Kyle’s continuous fighting and drama. Amanda is soon faced with the toughest decision of her life… either walk down the aisle or call off the engagement for good.
  • Carl Radke has become the best version of himself after a difficult summer last year.  His career is thriving and he is focusing on his physical and mental health by working out and meditating daily. Excited to explore a whole new world of sober dating with hopes of settling down, Carl has multiple potential romantic connections throughout the summer. Will he fall in love or fall apart?
  • Feeling like she was working too much and not having much control over her life, Danielle Olivera quit her corporate job to take a big risk, not only financially but personally. Although she and boyfriend Robert are still going strong, they have been finding it hard to put their relationship first and this summer could be what makes or breaks them. 
  • After living in Georgia her entire life, Ciara Miller has applied for her New York nursing license and found an apartment in the city, but soon finds herself homesick. She has been dating a few different guys in New York, but is faced with a difficult decision when a love interest from her past visits the house. 
  • Finally moved on from Ciara, Luke Gulbranson wants to have a summer filled with fun…and romance. No stranger to love-triangles, Luke finds himself getting pulled into different directions throughout the Summer and once again has his fair share of drama.
  • New to the Hamptons, but no stranger to this group of friends, Andrea Denver is excited to spend the summer with Paige. Soon after entering the house, he learns that she might have something romantically going on with someone he considered to be a close friend. And although his first instinct has always been to play the field, Andrea is determined more than ever to find the right girl to bring home to Italy.
  • Mya Allen, a restaurant consultant who runs a cookie business on the side, likes to keep things sweet. After breaking up with her long-term fiancé during quarantine, Mya joins her friend Paige for a summer she’ll never forget. She is taking her time to find her next man and wants to have fun and let loose…And what better place than in the Hamptons?
  • Born in Hong Kong, Alex Wach relocated to the United States as a child, and has lived in New York since he was 12. As a fitness instructor, Alex’s priorities include eating healthy, working out and looking good. Will he be able to keep up with this party crew?

Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean Returns

SEASON SIX OF BRAVO’S BELOW DECK MEDITERRANEAN RETURNS FOR A KNOTTY SUMMER ON MONDAY, JUNE 28 AT 9PM ET/PT  

Below Deck Mediterranean premieres on Monday, June 28 at 9pm ET/PT and cruises to the crystal-clear waters of the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia. Returning for another epic season are Captain Sandy Yawn and Malia White (Bosun).

 The new yachties include

o   Katie Flood (Chief Stew) 

o   Mathew Shea (Chef) 

o   Lexi Wilson (Stew) 

o   Courtney Veale (Stew) 

o   David Pascoe (Deckhand) 

o   Lloyd Spencer (Deckhand) 

o   Mzi “Zee” Dempers (Deckhand)   

Make sure to watch the season trailer here and catch up on the first four seasons of Below Deck Mediterranean currently on Peacock. 

Coming up this season

The crew boards the 180-foot mega yacht Lady Michelle and embarks on an exciting new charter season as they head to Šibenik, the oldest native Croatian town on the shores of the Adriatic Sea.  Personalities clash and tension quickly escalates as a crew member’s grudges start to rock the boat and disrupt the workflow. In a shocking franchise first, a serious crisis occurs before the opening charter, leaving the staff to worry if the season will be over before it even begins. While unprecedented permutations in the crew structure disrupt the dynamic of the boat, one department head’s new management style causes friction that spans to the entire crew. Amidst roommate issues and health scares, the staff encounters one demanding charter group after another, all while continuing to provide the seven-star service that is expected in the Med.  Between charters, long workdays lead to late night hijinks, surprising hook-ups and one heated, over-the-top argument in the hot tub that leaves the group at a crossroads.   

Meet the crew

Voyaging with a new team, Captain Sandy hopes for a return to calmer waters and is determined to hone the leadership skills of her department heads.  

Malia White returns as Bosun with even more experience and is excited to manage a new group of deckhands. Newly single, she is ready to let loose and have fun with the crew but after a few mishaps with a green deckhand, she quickly realizes she will have her work cut out for her. 

With over six years of experience in the yachting industry working on large super yachts and managing seven stews at once, new Chief Stew Katie Flood prides herself on her non-traditional attitude, attention to detail and unparalleled work ethic. A firm believer in equal opportunities, she strives to keep her interior team on an equal footing which does not bode well with her stews. When she clashes with one of her crewmates, she is left to make tough decisions that could impact the entire boat. 

Previously serving the top one-percenters of the world, Chef Mathew Shea’s standards and expectations in the galley set the bar exceedingly high, but after a disastrous first dinner, he is put to the ultimate test to redeem himself in front of the guests and gain the trust back of his fellow yachties.  

Former Miss Bahamas Lexi Wilson brings her own flair to the interior side and is not afraid to ruffle feathers with the crew. When frustrations with the yachties boil over, she finds herself in an unusual place with the group.  

Hailing from North Wales with a sunny personality, Courtney Veale brings her immense experience with laundry to the interior side and surprises even herself when given more opportunity in front of the guests. After a wild outing with the group, she is shocked to discover she doesn’t remember the biggest moment of the night.  

David Pascoe brings his wealth of knowledge to the deck team. When more than one yachtie catches his eye, he juggles work and play, leading to heartbreak.  

Previously working as a tour coach driver all around Europe, Lloyd Spencer is determined to prove his skills on super yachts. When pressure starts to build, he finds himself questioning if he has made the right career choice. 

Mzi Zee Dempers is excited to learn and follow in his yachtie brothers’ footsteps, but will he be able to adapt to the high demands of yachting and win the heart of his fellow yachtie? 

Below Deck Mediterranean is produced by 51 Minds with Courtland Cox, Nadine Rajabi and Mark Cronin serving as executive producers alongside Christian Sarabia and Temple Williams.

After the surprising reconciliation between Vicki, Tamra and Shannon at last season’s reunion, the ladies are working to rebuild their friendship and regain each other’s trust.  But they all know it will take more than a hug to repair the rumors, betrayal and damage done over the years.  Newly single, Shannon and Kelly have both moved into new homes and find that they are approaching their post-divorce life very differently, as they navigate the dating world, raise their daughters and launch their own careers. Vicki and Steve’s relationship is still going strong, but the OG of the OC wants him to commit and be more than just a boyfriend.  Meanwhile, Tamra fears that a health scare for Eddie could have bigger consequences than just sidelining her husband from CUT Fitness.  In the spirit of reconciliation and new beginnings, Tamra brings her estranged friend Emily and acquaintance Gina into the group to shake things up in the OC.

Emily Simpson

A true rags-to-riches story, Emily is an Ohio transplant who came from nothing and willed herself to great success to become an attorney, a part-time party-planer, a wife and a mom.  However, motherhood has been a bumpy road for her after years of fertility and pregnancy issues.  Resigned to the fact that she could not successfully carry her own children, Emily’s sister Sarah stepped in as a surrogate for all three of Emily and her husband Shane’s children – daughter Annabelle and twin boys Luke and Keller.  With three children under five, and two step-daughters from Shane’s previous marriage, Emily and Shane, are trying to plan out the future of their family and their careers together.  Emily planned Tamra’s baby shower for granddaughter Ava a few years back, but had a falling out with her shortly after befriending some of Tamra’s former besties.  Now focusing on mending the toxic relationships in her life, Emily hopes that she can find true friendships with the ladies.

Gina Kirschenheiter

This expressive outsider from Long Island is shaking up Southern California and its politically correct Orange County ways. As a mother of three kids under the age of 5, Gina keeps her expectations low and her patience high.  With her husband working and living in Los Angeles during the week, Gina is a single mom of sorts, which causes her to re-evaluate what she wants and needs in her marriage. Having only lived in Orange County for 3 years, she is still acclimating and is quickly learning that friendships in the OC aren’t always what they seem.

Tune in tonight, Monday, June 11 at 9 pm ET/PT for the half-hour special, “The Real Housewives of Orange County: How They Got Here” to reminisce on the memorable moments, jam-packed with all the screwball fun, drama and conflict from the past 12 seasons. Get caught up on the ladies with Vicki’s love tank woes, Tamra’s wavering friendship with the OG of the OC, Shannon’s rocky marriage and Kelly’s polarizing arrival into the fold.
