A couple of months ago, Austen Kroll finally explained that weird viral video of him and his girlfriend, Madison Lecroy.

Now, he’s shedding further insight into his on-again, off-again relationship.

Sitting beside Craig Conover, he dishes on reuniting with Madison while on the group’s trip to Colorado.

The pair of Southern Charm stars sat down with Us Weekly to discuss how all of that went down.

"Were Madison and I talking?" Austen asks. "A little bit prior to the trip, yeah."

"But we hadn’t really seen each other much," he admits.

"So," Austen confesses. "I was kind of nervous."

Hey, that’s understandable, especially after some previous hiccups in their relationship.

Austen emphasizes that he was "excited to see her because we were going to be on a trip with our friends."

"So if we can’t act right here," he reasons. "Then where can we act right?"

What he means by that is that it’s a low-key, comfortable environment for them to spend time.

"But everyone’s face," Austen remarks. "I mean, for God’s sakes, it was like Ashley [Jacobs] just frikkin’ walked in the freaking room."

Now that would have been a sight.

Craig admits that he and some of the others were just not sure how well Austen and Madison were going to do on the trip.

"We didn’t know how it was gonna go," he explains.

Craig says that this is "because we didn’t know how secretive they were being, if they were still talking or not."

"And we were all kind of waiting for the moment that they saw each other,” he recalls.

“Which was kind of goofy and made me laugh, but it was funny," he describes.

Austen and Madison got up to a little flirting in the hot tub, but fans didn’t see much more than that.

He now confirms that he and his lady love "ended up in bed together."

But he still plays it coy when asked about where the two of them are at the moment, relationship-wise.

"Honestly, there is so much more of the season left and a lot more happens," Austen says.

"And," he opines. "I think you just need to watch and see how that all unfolds."

“But," Austen teases. "You have most certainly not seen the last of Austen and Madison."

Craig was asked if he’s currently single or dating … and quickly got lost trying to define what either term means.

"I don’t know what dating means,” Craig confesses.

“Yeah, no, I mean, we are just having fun and traveling a lot and I met a few people recently and it’s been a lot of fun," he acknowledges.

"But just kind of talking," Craig characterizes. "But no one’s coming to weddings with me, yet. …"

"I feel like if I would have invited somebody to the wedding last week," Craig assesses. "I would feel like he is kind of dating her."

Austen and Craig also open up about how it can be difficult to date as semi-celebrities.

For Craig, at least, his ideal date (to a wedding, I guess) would ask "what’s Southern Charm?"
