Who Is Juliette Porter's Boyfriend, Sam Logan?

Juliette Porter became an overnight fan favorite on "Siesta Key" thanks to her spicy attitude. The Florida State University grad's relationships have been a major part of storylines throughout the series. Originally, she dated Alex Kompothecras on the show, and, as covered by Feeling The Vibe Magazine, the two had a tumultuous on-again-off-again relationship. Finally, Juliette split from Alex, and he was dismissed from the MTV reality show "due to past racially-charged comments," per Us Weekly.

After dating Alex, Juliette had a tryst with another reality star, Robby Hayes from "The Bachelorette." In May 2019, Juliette posted a photo on Instagram of her and Robby kissing in Siesta Key, People noted. The couple went on a romantic getaway to Greece as well, but their relationship was short-lived. "Geographically, the relationship didn't make sense," a source told E! in July 2019. "They decided to split because it just wasn't fun anymore."

The "Siesta Key" star did not stay single very long, and was romantically linked to her friend Sam Logan by the end of 2019. Sam made their relationship Instagram-official in February 2020 when he posted a photo of the two sharing a smooch at Disney's Magic Kingdom. The duo had known each other for quite some time before becoming an item. "Sam and I were always friends and then things got a little more serious," Juliette told Us Weekly in June 2020.

Sam Logan comes from money

Juliette Porter's boyfriend Sam Logan is a graduate from the University of Central Florida, but that only tells a fraction of his story, as covered by Reality Titbit. Sam comes from a family of considerable wealth. His mother, Elizabeth Logan, inherited the Scripps Network, which is a conglomerate that owns cable networks such as Travel Channel, Food Network, and HGTV. Sam owns a 10% share of the company, and in 2018, Scripps was sold to Discovery for a whopping $14.6 billion, as per The Sun.

Sam used some of his wealth to buy a luxurious mansion in June 2020. As reported by The Sun, Sam purchased a four-bedroom, six-bathroom home in Siesta Key for $4.2 million. The mansion includes a home gym, a sauna, a sound-insulated theater, and an elevator in the home. In addition to flaunting his gorgeous home, Sam often posts photos on his private jet, yacht, and numerous luxury cars.

Juliette often speaks about how sweet of a boyfriend Sam is, but their relationship came with built-in drama. Prior to dating Juliette, Sam was part of the same friend circle as Alex Kompothecras. "Alex and him were sort of friends, and he didn't really obviously like that Sam was dating me," Juliette told Life & Style in August 2020. Juliette's ex responded poorly when he found out about her new boyfriend. "Alex said horrible things to Sam, did horrible things to Sam. So Sam really just doesn't care at all," she said.
