|Birthday||June 16, 1987|
As a loyal viewer of Southern Charm, I‘ve loved watching Austen Kroll bring his laidback vibes and goofball antics to the show since his introduction in season 4. This Charleston heartthrob is so much more than just a reality TV personality – he‘s an entrepreneur, athlete, world traveler, and amazing friend. Let‘s dig deeper into what makes Austen so gosh darn lovable!
All About Austen Kroll
Hailing from Charlotte, Austen headed south to attend Coastal Carolina University, where he walked onto the baseball team his junior year thanks to his athletic abilities. After graduating with a business degree, Austen worked in finance but found his true calling in the beer industry. He launched Kings Calling Brewing Company in 2020, including their flagship Trop Hop beer.
Austen‘s life changed forever when he joined the cast of Southern Charm in 2017. With his endearing humor and winter wardrobe full of classic colorful sweaters, Austen quickly became a fan favorite. Whether starting rap battles with Shep or giggling drunkenly during late nights out, this goofball knows how to have a good time. But Austen also demonstrates maturity and loyalty as a trustworthy friend. His bromance and adventures with Shep and Craig provide countless laugh-out-loud moments!

Austen‘s Relationship Rollercoaster
Austen‘s love life has been quite the rollercoaster on Southern Charm! He dated Chelsea Meissner early on, followed by a tumultuous love triangle between Madison LeCroy and Kristin Cavallari that sparked plenty of fireworks.
After splitting from Madison in late 2020, Austen was briefly linked to co-star Olivia Flowers last year. But that fizzled out quickly, seemingly leaving our boy Austen single once again.
As a loyal fan, I‘m rooting for Austen to find his true soulmate, whether she‘s a Charleston beauty or someone new entirely. He deserves all the happiness in the world!

I simply adore Austen for being an unfiltered, unapologetic goofball who spreads so much joy, whether he‘s cracking jokes or just living his most authentic life. Austen‘s passion and work ethic with Kings Calling is also incredibly admirable.
Cheers to many more years of Austen Kroll on Southern Charm and beyond! This lovable beer aficionado will forever be a Bravo fan favorite.
