Here's How Paige DeSorbo Recently Put Craig Conover to "The Test" in Her NYC Apartment

Paige DeSorbo recently put  Craig Conover to the test, and he didn't even know it. The setup was innocent enough: While chilling at home, the Summer House cast member asked her Southern Charm  beau to get her a snack from the kitchen. 

How to Watch

Watch Summer House on Bravo Thursday, February 22 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.

Only later did Craig learn that, by retrieving (and peeling!) the item, he had passed a major test. Scroll down for the juicy details. 

Paige DeSorbo tests the Orange Peel Theory with Craig Conover

In a TikTok post from January 28, Paige shared a video that found her sitting on the couch at home, bundled up in a cozy sweatshirt. "You know what I'm craving?" she said to Craig, who was apparently in the kitchen off-camera. "One of those Cuties in there. But will you peel it?"

Not only did Craig peel the miniature orange; he took off the peel in one, elegant piece. "You passed!" Paige said. "It was a TikTok thing, and you passed!" When Craig asked if the test had been measuring his ability to remove an orange peel in one go, Paige said, laughing, "No, that wasn't the test!"

What is the orange peel theory?

Known as the "orange peel theory," the actual trending test is as such: Ask your partner to peel an orange for you. If they deliver, it's true love. 


Will Paige DeSorbo and Craig Conover get married? 

Speaking of true love, Paige and Craig have fielded multiple questions about whether they plan to get married. On the January 18 episode of  Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Craig shared a surprising update on his proposal timeline, and he spoke up about why there's too much "outside pressure" in their relationship. 

Though Craig and Paige have yet to decide which city will become their home base, the two are set on being a couple for the long haul. The duo briefly thought about eloping in Las Vegas during BravoCon 2023, but Craig noted that he wanted something "more real."


Instead of jumping ahead and tying the knot, Craig is now considering when he will propose to Paige. As Craig revealed on WWHL, he plans to propose before the couple reaches the next milestone in their relationship.

"September [2024] will be three years," he said about their next dating anniversary. "I think between two and three years is an appropriate time to get engaged."
