There's a new(ish) lady in Austen Kroll's life — and we watched as the beer connoisseur and his former flame/Chelsea Meissner's friend Victoria decided to take the leap into romance together on this week's Southern Charm (clip above). Austen may have been torn between Chelsea and Victoria for some time, but in the end, it felt right to try again with Victoria. "Victoria and I, we kind of just mesh together," he shared with Craig Conover in the episode about her.
And in case you're wondering a little bit more about the woman who has stolen his heart, The Daily Dish got some scoop about her from Austen himself.
"She's kind of like the polar opposite of Chelsea," he shared, referring to his other former girlfriend/Cameran Eubanks' BFF. "Trying to get Chelsea out and about is like pulling teeth. And Victoria, she gets off work and she's like, 'Let's go to happy hour.' I'm like, 'Yes! What a breath of fresh air. Let's go do that. Let's go have fun together. Let's do all of the things.'"
We first learned about Victoria earlier in the season when it was revealed he had a brief romance with her. When speaking to The Daily Dish now, Austen joked, "What the hell is wrong with me?" when he chatted about putting his romantic life on TV, but did note that fans will get to see what happens with him and Victoria because he is living his life in front of the cameras. And, when it comes to his relationship with Victoria, he went into it with his philosophy in mind: "I thought that that would equate to the opposite of opposite attracts."
So, stay tuned! You can follow Austen's journey with Victoria every Thursday on Southern Charm at 9/8c. Below, Austen reflects on his romance with Chelsea.
