It's been five months since AwesomenessTV uploaded a new episode of its hit web series Royal Crush to YouTube and thankfully, the wait is finally over. Season two is here and M even interviewed Alex Aiono, who plays Sebastian on the show, all about what it's like filming on a cruise ship, working with YouTuber Aspyn Ovard (who plays his ex-girlfriend this season), and of course, his much-talked about relationship with his co-star Meg DeAngelis.
"It's [about] a pretty confusing love story," Alex tells M. "Sebastian’s ex-girlfriend is on the boat with him and Desi and there’s a lot of confusion now that Desi has [over] whether Sebastian is rekindling the flame he has with his ex-girlfriend or whether she’s his friend or whatever. There’s still that confusion that spills over. I’m excited for everyone to see it!"
As you may recall, season one saw Sebastian and Desi in Western Europe, but this season, they're headed to the Caribbean!
"I had never been to the Caribbean either but it was so beautiful," Alex says. "The water was so clear and it’s just great getting to be somewhere where you’ve never been before."
So we had to ask, what was it like working with another one of YouTube's biggest stars? (We're talking about Aspyn, of course!)
"Aspyn is one of the most loveable human beings in the world," Alex dishes. "She’s one of those people that as soon as you start working with her, she’s just so bubbly and so light and nice that you automatically have a good day."
Alex continued, "We’re all pretty new to acting so it was all a great experience for us all to learn and she’s someone I just enjoyed learning with."
But get this: Aspyn isn't the only YouTuber Alex had the chance to work with this season.
"Yeah, it was an amazing atmosphere working with [Aspyn] as well as working with Mikey [Murphy]. Mikey is my favorite YouTuber at the moment and I love watching his videos so getting to work with him was just like super surreal!"

And what about those dating rumors surrounding him and his co-star, Meg?
"I would say the coolest person I met on the show is probably Meg," Alex reveals. "On a personal level, Meg and I dated for a couple of months and really got to know each other and now we’re really good friends and so it’s just another blessing on top of everything that I got to make such a close connection with somebody I got to work with."
AWW — that is SO sweet! We're so happy that they're still such close friends.
"Now, looking back at everything, if I hadn’t been part of the show, I probably wouldn’t have been so close to the friends that I have now, especially Meg," Alex says.
