Sam Logan and Jordana Barnes have been sending Siesta Key fans mixed signals about their relationship for months, and now they’ve been seen kissing in a video from Sam’s 31st birthday party. Jordana and Sam have been friends for years, but since she joined the reality TV show’s cast during season 4a, it seemed obvious she may have had feelings for her friend. At the time, Sam was still with Juliette Porter, and his girlfriend was very suspicious of Sam and Jordana’s friendship. When the cast was on a tropical island getaway, Jordana even made a joke that she wanted to make out with Sam while sitting at the bar across from Juliette’s close friend Lexie Salameh.
When Sam and Juliette called it quits, Jordana finally had an opportunity to get closer to the Florida billionaire. Instead, she seemed to encourage his fling with Meghan Bischoff on the show, while spending a lot of time with Sam on social media. While Siesta Key season 4b was airing, Juliette revealed in an Instagram comment that Sam and Jordana were living together. Sam also told a fan on Instagram that he and Jordana were dating, which most Siesta Key fans believed was a joke. Jordana later confirmed that she and Sam were just friends. The castmates have since moved to Miami with the rest of the cast and are still living in a home together.
The lines between friendship and relationship have continued to blur as Jordana and Sam were spotted kissing in an Instagram video taken at Sam’s 31st birthday party. mtv_reality_teaa reshared the video, which was initially posted on cast member Mike Vazquez’s Instagram Story. In the video, Sam and Jordana seem to be enjoying their night dancing with each other as neon lights flash in the background. Soon after, the two begin hugging and start to kiss before pulling away and laughing. “What happens in @galamiami stays at Gala,” Mike captioned the video. After their kiss, Sam turns toward someone else at the party, but it’s hard to determine what he said.
“I remember they said they were hook up buddies before he got with Juliette. This doesn’t surprise me,” one fan commented. Others wished they would stop having to see the pair on social media or on the show. Sam and Jordana were at the center of most of the Siesta Key season 4b drama. The season heavily focused on Juliette’s split from Sam, and since he and Jordana are such good friends, she had a significant role in the season as well. During a TikTok Live video, former Siesta Key castmate Camilla Cattaneo admitted that Jordana causes a lot of drama on the show so that she can make money and get a lot of screen time in hopes of becoming a main cast member.
While some fans are wondering if the two are now more than friends, with their past social media antics, it’s likely this was just another move to tease fans and get attention for the reality show. It’s also been reported that the birthday party was being filmed for Siesta Key season 5, so maybe their budding relationship will be a new plotline in the season. Now that Sam and Juliette are officially done, he’s free to do whatever he wants, even if there really isn’t anything going on between him and Jordana. Fans will find out sooner or later, as the two have a hard time keeping their private life off of social media.
