After grabbing some drinks, Michael asked Caroline if she would like to take a picture in front of the balloons to be entered into the contest. While trying to take a selfie, Michael got nervous that Caroline would see family and friends walking up behind them, so he grabbed her hand and got down on one knee. THE MOLDRIKS Susan “Q” and Gunnar Moldrik are truly the embodiment of opposites being attracted to one another. Gunnar is a personal trainer to the moms and the cast of “Southern Charm.” Susan is a digital content organizer and creator. Gunnar is eight years younger than Susan. Even though Gunnar tried his hardest to date Susan, she wasn’t having it. They formed a great work and friend relationship. “We were best friends. We traveled together and did everything together,” Susan explained. Susan initially refused Gunnar’s attempts to take their relationship to the next level. She went to Denver for a wedding and one of her friends finally convinced her to give Gunnar a try. “Everyone thought we had a secret relationship because we were always together,” recalled Susan. “My girlfriend told me to just try it…what do I have to lose? I hadn’t been in a relationship in five years. So, I called him at the Denver airport and my flight was delayed. Gunnar stayed on the phone with me until I was able to fly home. It was literally 12 hours later. That moment changed how I looked at him.” By July 2019, they were officially a couple. During the beginning of COVID-19, Susan lost her job and moved in with Gunnar. Gunnar’s personal fitness empire took off. Susan and Gunnar are true entrepreneurs and are making an impact in the Charleston area. Last December, Gunnar teamed up with Jason Harn from Loy Harn Jewelers to create a custom engagement ring. He popped the question in front of Susan’s family at Penn State University.
