In October of 2021, at the wedding of Madisson Hausburg and Ish Soto, Juliette had a dapper-looking brunette as her plus-one for the big day. When she posted a photo of her and her date, fans instantly wanted to know who the mystery man was, especially since some hadn't even heard that she and Sam had broken up.

At the time, there was no confirmation as to whether the guy was Juliette's boyfriend or just a friend who she brought to the wedding (though their body language was very telling). However, not long after, we learned that her wedding date was, in fact, her new beau.

So, who exactly is he? Keep reading to learn more about Juliette's boyfriend, Clark.

Juliette Porter's new boyfriend is Clark Drum.

Juliette and her boyfriend, Clark Drum, have been linked since Juliette made them Instagram official in October 2021. Though we're not sure exactly when they started dating, it couldn't have been long before that, as she and Sam only called it quits the previous August.

So, who is this new man? According to Clark’s LinkedIn account, he's a realtor in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. for his family-owned real estate company, and he's also a licensed yacht broker. By the looks of his Instagram account, he loves to travel and is quite outdoorsy. Photos show him visiting hotspots such as Paris, France; Monte Carlo, Monaco; Mallorca, Spain; and Tulum, Mexico. He also appears to be super close with his family, as numerous photos show him posing with his mother and siblings.

On Oct. 6, 2022 — nearly a year after Juliette's hard launch on the 'Gram — Clark posted his first-ever photos of Juliette on his feed. The images show the couple riding in a boat in Lake Como, Italy.

"He posted me 🥹💦🙏🏼," Juliette commented on the pics. "LOL love you, baby."

"Could you two be any more attractive???" replied castmate Chloe Long.

The couple appear to be as happy as ever. Ahead of the Siesta Key Season 4B premiere in May 2022, Juliette opened up about her name man to Life and Style Magazine. The MTV personality said, "He just wants to be with me … like, that’s all he cares about. He just wants to be happy; he doesn’t have a huge ego; he’s just amazing."

Though they're clearly doing well, the 25-year-old says they're not in any race to get to the altar. "I mean we’re together every weekend, we must be serious," Juliette said. "But I think at the same time, we’re young and there’s no rush for us right now. We’re just focusing on being happy."

Juliette also shared why she and ex-boyfriend Sam parted ways.

In an interview with US Weekly, Juliette got candid about the reasons for her split from Sam.

"When you love someone, you try to make it work, but I really was unhappy, and I was emotionally drained and exhausted and I just wasn’t putting myself first. I shouldn’t have had to choose between myself and him. It was a toxic relationship," she said.

Now, though, she's happier than ever and she isn't afraid to compare her new man to her toxic ex. "[Clark is] just everything that I needed. Not even needed — everything that I wanted ... He’s everything Sam wasn’t, you know? He doesn’t have a huge ego ... It’s really refreshing to be with someone that actually listens to you and cares about how you feel about things."

We can’t wait to get to know more about Clark as Siesta Key: Miami Moves airs new episodes on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
