“Originally I was going to do a ‘come to Bali with me on a first date’ video, but instead we’re going to have a ‘what the f**k is wrong with men’ FBI session,” Austen begins the video.

“He was sitting in front of me so I saw him in real life and at least confirmed he wasn’t a catfish,” she was quoted as saying. “He ignored me, if he saw me – but how could he not? I was standing next to him waiting to get into my row.”
Austen said she would have preferred to have called him out, but she was left too embarrassed to do so.
“Feeling insecure, no words were exchanged,” she added. “He just started straight at the ground and didn’t look around once.”

Austen provides more details about her story in a follow-up video:
She told that the man explained why he ghosted her after the video went viral.
“He told me that he’d met someone in Lombok and he felt so embarrassed because he'd asked me all the way there so he just disappeared,” she said. “I laid into him about how cowardly that is and that he shouldn’t have invited me if he was going with the intention of meeting whoever and going with the flow. There was clearly no importance set on meeting me even though he invited me. It was so cruel.”
In another video, Austen shares that the man has apologized and expressed his intent to be better:
