Summer should be fun and also full of money. Luckily, these Summer House stars don’t have to worry about their finances because Bravo pays them a pretty penny to ensure they are having fun out in the Hamptons. Most of the cast is laughing all the way to the bank between their Bravo salaries, real jobs, and influencer contracts.

What does Bravo pay?

Again, Bravo is pretty hush-hush about a cast member’s salary, but a rough idea can always be worked out. Per The Richest, each cast member is reportedly paid somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000 for each episode. For a season with 17 episodes, like Season 6, Kyle, Carl, or Lindsay could be looking to earn $170,000 and $340,000 for the year. It’s hard to believe that this cast basically gets paid to drink and party, but I guess someone had to take the hit.

While Bravo never really shares how much they pay their on-air talent, Kyle Cooke spilled some secrets. Kyle noted that Bravo had a template for how each season would go. However, in a true entrepreneur move, Kyle negotiated everyone’s salary in the beginning after their pilot was filmed. Kyle shared on the Trading Secrets podcast it’s a step scale based on how many years a star has been on. So the OGs (Carl Radke, Lindsay Hubbard, and Kyle) all get the same amount. When a new cast member joins, they get paid the same amount Kyle and the rest of the OGs did for year one, and they keep moving up every year and so forth. I could only imagine that Bravo wasn’t prepared to negotiate with Kyle, but good for him!

Kyle Cooke

Kyle once claimed that he was “$4 million in debt” during an episode. At the time, everything was on the line after sinking $100,000 of his own money into his business. Kyle’s stress bubbled over about his new drink company, Loverboy, but it seems the rough waters have settled. According to Forbes, Kyle started a contracting business as an undergrad and then moved on to Babson’s FW Olin Graduate School of Business. It was there he launched Reservations Tonight, which he later sold to an overseas buyer.

Kyle then came up with his lightbulb idea, a product he could advertise on the Bravo show. Thus, Loverboy was born. In 2022, Loverboy generated $16 million in sales—not too shabby, Kyle. Currently, Kyle is said to be worth one million dollars, so says The Cinemaholic.

Carl Radke

How could I forget that Carl was a graduate of Harvard Business School? Even though he seems aloof, Carl can work hard. Carl’s net worth is estimated to be between $500,000 and $1 million. Carl worked as a small-time actor before hitting it big with Bravo. He then obviously found his spot on Summer House. He also earned his money working for Loverboy as Vice President of Sales.

Lindsay Hubbard

Before becoming an influencer, Lindsay used to be a PR guru. With a net worth of $1.1 million, it’s no wonder Carl and his lack of ambition turned her off. Not only does Lindsay have paid partnerships and a Bravo paycheck, but she is also now a landlord. Lindsay recently purchased her own Nashville flat to rent out to fans. Just like Kyle, Lindsay has pandered to fans, charging $6,300 for four nights. The space only allows five people even though there are six beds, meaning a guest pays over $300 for four nights. It’s safe to say Lindsay is making a pretty penny.

Paige DeSorbo

Paige DeSorbo is rolling in her success and committed to the cause. Being cast on the Bravo show has helped launch her career in fashion. She is now a part of multiple partnerships as an influencer with Amazon, Vici, and her podcast, Giggly Squad. Paige only joined Summer House in Season 3, so her paycheck would be a bit less than that of the OGs. But she has also started to appear on Southern Charm, which could boost her earnings. Paige also runs her own fashion blog, writes for Betches Media, and hosts Amazon Live. She is estimated to be worth a cool million.

So, while we may not know exactly how much each Summer House cast member is being paid, we have an idea. The show is rich in talent, and they should be aptly paid—cheers to another summer filled with fun.
