Everything You Need to Know About Bria Fleming's Boyfriend on Summer House: Martha's Vineyard

Bria's German boyfriend, Simon Marco, had "a rough journey" before launching his first online business at just 16 years old. 

By Jax Miller

Bria Fleming is here for another season of Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard, and it seems her long-distance beau will soon be paying her a visit.

How to Watch

Watch Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard on Sundays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Summer mode is on for the New York-based entrepreneur — along with her trusted companion, Milo — while her boyfriend, Simon, remains in Germany. According to her Season 2 bio, while the lovers maintain a long-distance relationship, Bria is “resolved to focus on herself and stay out of the mess” at the Oak Bluffs home.  

In Season 2, Episode 2, Bria told Summer Marie Thomas that Simon had to stay in Germany for work but that he was expected to visit later in the season after about a month apart. 

“Simon and I are in a better place than we were last year,” Bria told producers. “We do go through our ups and downs, but Simon and I are very close; I even lived in Germany with Simon for one year, and then I had to return back to New York for business.”

Bria told Summer she was “obsessed” with Simon, further explaining to producers that “dick withdrawal is a real thing.”

Who is Simon Marco?

Simon Marco is an entrepreneur from Munich, Germany, as shown on his Instagram page. According to a profile by Forbes Columbia — and highlighted on Simon’s Insta — he is the founder of Watchroom24, a business founded in 2020 that sells luxury watches by designers including Versace and Philipp Plein.

SH:MV fans will recall when he gifted the cast with some expensive timepieces in Season 1, Episode 5.

Simon launched his first online business at 16 years old, amassing $1 million within just two years, per Forbes Columbia.

Why Silas Cooper Isn’t Returning to Summer House: Martha's Vineyard

“I have had a rough journey in my life and have been down a long path to be the person that I am today,” he said. “Viewers of the show could see that I’m a very calm and very chilled person; this is something I have become along the way after overcoming difficult times in my life.”

How Bria and Simon actually met

In Season 1, Summer alleged Bria and Simon met on the sugar daddy website Seeking Arrangements. However, Bria quashed the rumor on WWHL, responding with, “She’s projecting.”

The pair actually met in 2022 at the Cannes Film Festival in France, where they returned exactly one year later. On May 23, 2023, Bria took to Instagram to wish her Romeo a happy anniversary, posting a photo of the pair looking as dapper as ever.

“My heart is, and always will be, yours,” she captioned. “One year down and forever to go.”

Simon told Reality Tea that for the special occasion, “We rented an apartment next to the beach and celebrated at our favorite Italian restaurant.”

A glance at the pair’s social media pages shows glimpses into a relationship that balances glamour and adventure, from encounters with penguins, charity galas in Germany, and traveling around the world.  

Simon on Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard

In June 2023, after filming on Season 1, Simon spoke to Distractify about being on Martha’s Vineyard and supporting Bria’s decision to move from Germany for filming.       

“She wanted me to be there also to support her, and I was delighted,” said Simon. “Being on this life journey, I want to share everything I’m doing with [Bria], and she wants to share everything she’s doing with me.”

That same month, Simon told Reality Tea he was “completely unaware” of the Bravo universe before appearing in Season 1.

Initially, Jasmine and Silas Cooper were against the idea of having a new person visit the Martha’s Vineyard home.

That was remedied, however, when he gifted the group with fancy schmancy watches.

Simon said he was “sad to be so prejudged” and that the preconceptions were all wrong, according to Reality Tea. Ultimately, he would laugh the rumors off and be satisfied by how the group welcomed him with open arms.

“My arrival and the reception I got was nothing like I expected,” said Simon. “Everyone welcomed me very warmly and were all nice to me.”

Here’s hoping for as warm of a reception as he makes his appearance in Season 2.
