Carl Radke is happily dating his “Summer House” co-star Lindsay Hubbard now but fans are seeing his past summer as a single man currently airing on season 6 of the Bravo show. This past episode, Radke opened up to new girl Mya Allen that he was seeing a woman named Mackenzie and was very interested in her.
He told Allen that he was being slow and cautious but was excited about the possibility of becoming more serious with Mackenzie and specifically mentioned that he was happy that he knew he could depend on her being sober if he called late at night. Fans were shocked when producers flashed a photo of Radke and Mackenzie together on the screen as they saw it was none other than Mackenzie Dipman from the U.S.’s “Love Island” season 2.
Dipman joined the “Love Island” cast and soon developed a relationship with her co-star Connor Trott, although things didn’t work out and she left the island alone. However, they reignited their romance after filming ended and dated for several months until breaking up for good in March 2021. Once “Summer House” fans saw that Radke was seeing Dipman, they expressed their shock on social media and many commented their displeasure with the pairing.

Radke Is Now Officially in a Relationship With ‘Summer House’ Co-Star Lindsay Hubbard
Radke and Hubbard were not yet dating last summer when season 6 of “Summer House” was filmed but fans hoping to catch a glimpse of their relationship may be in luck. In an interview with Us Weekly, Radke hinted that viewers will see the beginning of their romance “play out toward the end” of the season.
Radke, who actually lives in the same building as Hubbard, told the publication that it was in the fall of 2021 that they started hanging out more and he began to feel like he wanted to pursue things further. “I also wanted some time for us to explore that early on [in our] relationship,” he said. Viewers saw the two best friends grow over many seasons together on “Summer House,” including a failed romance a few seasons ago.
Luckily, when that first attempt failed, they were able to remain friends and grow their relationship more. On January 17, 2022, Radke confirmed that he and Hubbard are officially boyfriend and girlfriend on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
