During his appearance on WWHL, Austen was forced to compare his Winter House co-stars Lindsay and Ciara Miller during a game of “Pick Your Winter Spouse.” He ended up revealing that Ciara was both a “better cuddler” and a “better kisser” than Lindsay.
On November 1, the Queens of Bravo on Instagram confirmed the news with their fans and followers.
Also on Instagram, Lindsay shared a photo of herself and Carl recreating a steamy moment from Dirty Dancing while celebrating Halloween in New York City.
“I carried a watermelon,” Lindsay captioned her October 31 photo, which was taken at the Kellerman’s Resort.
In the comments section of the post, a number of Lindsay’s online audience members suspected Lindsay and Carl are dating.
‘Tell me you’re dating without telling me you’re dating,” one person said.
“Hoping this means y’all are together!!!” another noted.
“Wait so is this the confirmation we’ve ALL been waiting for?” added a third.
While Lindsay and Carl engaged in a brief romance during Summer House season four, they both denied dating rumors last month.
“We’re like forever best friends,” Lindsay told Page Six in October. “That’s just who we are. We both were seeing other people this summer, and you guys will see how our friendship has developed. He’s been sober for nine months, and we’re very much there for each other through that process.”
“I don’t want to speak for her, but we’re both single,” Carl said that same month. “My focus is really hitting that year mark of sobriety. I did try to date a little bit this summer, but realizing again if I’m really fully ready for a serious relationship.”
“I will say though my friendship with Lindsay is incredibly strong. Nine months of sobriety so far, she’s been a huge support during that – not that other friends haven’t – she’s just someone I can rely on. Our friendship has even grown since this past summer, so I’m just happy to be in this place,” he added.
Winter House season one airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
