Here is the recap you all did not know that you needed, Summer House! That’s right, Summer House. We are two episodes in, so this is a quick catch up guide. You will be all caught up and ready to delve into the Hamptons happenings with me (Pop Culture Kelly) and the gang.
KYLE COOKE AND AMANDA BATULA
Kyle Cooke is back with his girlfriend Amanda Batula. In case you missed last season, they are the only Summer House couple. Kyle cheated on Amanda, the details are hazy as to when it happened. But ,they are together and going strong. There was a lot of drama in the off season with Kamanda, Danielle Olivera and Lindsay Hubbard. In short, Kyle sent a 17 page email to everyone detailing how upset Amanda was after the last reunion. Lindsay and Danielle took exception to receiving any emails over 3 pages so they did what anyone would do. They unfollowed Amanda on social media. Everyone has since kissed and made up.
Lindsay is single Lindsay again. Besides the Kyle and Amanda drama, that’s really all I’ve got. She took her top off playing cornhole, which is really the only interesting thing that’s happened since her arrival.
Danielle is coming in hot this season. Seeing her old castmates get the boot has motivated her to keep her bed in Summer House, I guess. Danielle drunkenly started a fight at the group dinner but was quickly shut down. She likes Jordan, one of the three newbies in the house. She is constantly talking about getting the “D” over the summer, which is super classy. I predict she will be the trainwreck of the season.
Hannah is a past tennis pro who is currently a social media influencer. She seems fun and light but has not made a strong impression yet. She works with Paige and Jordan, the other two newbies. I like the new additions so far.
Paige is a sheltered, somewhat prissy newbie who LOVES dinner. She gets very upset if any drama interferes with dinner. I’m not sure if she watched the show before joining, but dinners tend to get ruined in the Summer House. She’s a beautiful girl who has already caught the eye of Carl. I do not see her falling for him, but stranger things have happened.
We are presented this season with Carl 3.0. Once a proud “f*ckboy”, he has vowed to tone down his horny ways. Carl claims to be focused on work and being single over the summer. He has also claimed to have learned from his past mistakes of hooking up with a roommate. He has set his sights on new roommate Paige. So my feeling is that we are presented with a toned down Carl 1.0.
I’m not sure if anyone can love Jordan the way Jordan loves Jordan, but Danielle will give it a try! He’s very proud of his looks, especially his abs. He likes Danielle but who knows how far that will go. He attends church services by watching them online every Sunday.
I hope this little guide has gotten everyone caught up. Please join me every Monday night for Hamptons shenanigans with the Summer House crew. We’re off to a slow start, but I think things will heat up soon!
