Siesta Key's Juliette Porter has moved on from exes Alex Kompothecras and Robby Hayes, and now has a new boo: Sam Logan.

The two made their relationship Instagram-official back in February, when both she and her new man posted a photo of the themselves kissing at Disney's Magic Kingdom.

"Once upon a time...," Sam captioned the photo, and fans of the MTV series are now wondering who Sam Logan is, and what he does for a living. Keep reading while we investigate!

Sam and Juliette seem to have known each other for a while.

Sam seems to be friends with Juliette's ex, Alex, and the two are pictured partying together way back before he got with Juliette.

Could Juliette be dating Sam because he's friends with Alex, "to piss Alex off again," asks Monsters & Critics? It's certainly possible, though the guys' friendship could just be how Juliette knows him.

"Alex and him were sort of friends, and he didn't really obviously like that Sam was dating me," Juliette explained to Life & Style. "So that was a huge thing. Sam felt really guilty, but we've kind of moved on from that. Alex said horrible things to Sam, did horrible things to Sam. So Sam really just doesn't care at all."

Six months ago, right around the time of the Magic Kingdom post, redditors were asking each other what was going on between Sam and Juliette, since they were "all over each other lately" on social media.

"But he dated one of her best friends for YEARS," they speculated, adding that the new couple was even more entwined, as Sam had broken up with Juliette's friend Brittany Russell even after Juliette and Alex called it quits. 

Wow! The Siesta Key circles are even smaller than we'd thought!

What does Sam do for a living?

Siesta Key fans were also quick to point out that Sam's "family money makes Alex's family look like peasants."

One even called the Siesta Key newcomer a "complete trust fund baby, with all those gross 'look at my money' photos of big cars, boats, houses and nice sh-t" on reddit, and added that Juliette's new boo is much flashier than her ex, whose "posts were never that over the top."

While it appears that Sam works, "unlike Alex," it's not exactly clear what the University of Central Florida grad does for a living. But his family, the Logans, according to viewers, own the network behind channels like HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, and the Travel Channel.

"They still have insane amounts of money from the sale though," audiences on reddit continued, adding that they were "set for 10 lifetimes."

We are guessing this means that Juliette will be living it up with her new man, and from the looks of social media, they seem to have taken at least one trip on a private jet together!

New episodes of Siesta Key air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
