Portwood says she met Baier when he approached her on Twitter. But she may not have known that the 44-year-old was a Teen Mom super fan for years before they met. He slammed Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans and her baby daddy, Nathan Griffith, hundreds of times. "If you were on a sinking boat with @PBandJenelley_1 and a cockroach, who would you save?" he tweeted in April 2014.

The Boston native had his fair share of money problems, too. In 2007, Baier was slapped with a federal tax lien for a shocking $28,543. (The lien was ultimately discharged in 2008.)
