Balloon Guy Joe Declares He's "Back" on Summer House — But Where Does He Stand with Danielle Now?

See what Joe had to say about his Summer House return and find out where he and Danielle Olivera stand today.

By Allison Crist

Balloon Guy Joe made an unexpected return to Summer House on Season 8, Episode 14 — or as he put it when speaking to The Daily Dish, "I came back and did one more party." 

How to Watch

Watch Summer House on Bravo Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.

In the process, Joe once again hit it off with Danielle Olivera. The two hung out for much of West Wilson's doomsday-themed event and could at one point be seen kissing in the kitchen. 

With that in mind, where do Joe and Danielle stand today? According to the balloon professional — who actually previously revealed that he's much more than "Balloon Guy Joe," as he also works as a bricklayer and for a cesspool company — he's "reached out" to Danielle "a few times" since last summer.

"We've had a few conversations," Joe said. "Lindsay [Hubbard], we've had a few conversations, more like on Instagram — like, pictures or balloon work that I've done, they will comment on it, but we're not hanging out and having dinners or anything like that. Not to say I wouldn't if they [were to] call and want to get together. I loved all of them. They were all great people ... I had so much fun and, you know, I would do it again."

Who is Balloon Guy Joe?

Balloon Guy Joe works for the party rental company that's supplied balloons for numerous Summer House gatherings. He eventually attended one of these parties himself and ended up hooking up with Danielle. 

Now that Joe and the people in his life have watched the Summer House episodes back, he told The Daily Dish, "My phone's been ringing a little more times than usual these days. The reactions [have been], you know, people are like, 'Is this you? Is this true? Did I just see what I saw?' and yeah, it is what it is."

"I just feel like it's another day and, oh sh-t, that's me on TV right there," he added. "Like I just kind of feel like I'm watching a picture of myself. I'm not sure it has really set in."
