Teen Mom OG has taken fans on a wild ride since 2009 as audiences have followed the stories of Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout, Catelynn Baltierra and Amber Portwood. Along with many ups and downs, there has been love lost and love found, and for Amber Portwood that love has been with Matt Baier. Since first being introduced to him in Teen Mom‘s fifth season, many have questioned Matt’s intentions and their criticisms were raised after he made the headlines for old tweets showing his past interactions with other Teen Mom stars and questions about how many children he really has. To clear up the rumors and be able to tell his side of the story, the 47-year-old decided to release his own book You Have No F**king Idea: The Naked Truth About My Life. Here are the 10 most shocking revelations from Baier’s side of the story:

10. Intro to MTV

When fans first met Matt in season five of Teen Mom OG they were shocked to learn that the two had begun a relationship during his first trip to Indiana when they met for the first time face-to-face, and while fans were skeptical about him, so were the crews. Matt admitted that in that season there were already some episodes filmed before he was brought in so he had to stay upstairs while filming until they were ready to introduce him, and as he began working with them, it was a little tense at first. “This crew, the majority of them, had seen Amber grow up. It wasn’t hard to see that they were wondering, ‘Who’s this forty-something guy and what is he after?'” Now, however, he insists they trust him. “Several seasons later, I can say that we’re close friends. They realized that I was the real deal. But, they had their suspicions and didn’t hide them, and I give them credit for that. That shows how close they are to these girls. They were protecting Amber.”

9. “Fame Whore”

As soon as Matt made his way into Amber’s life everyone thought he was just trying to seek fame and live off of MTV stardom, but in his book he insists the opposite is true. When he first started tweeting Amber the show had been off while she was in prison and he had no idea it was going back into production. “When we officially started dating, I knew that she was going to be filming and that cameras would be in her house. I, however, made it clear I wanted no part of the show. I didn’t want to be on it. I didn’t want to make appearances. I didn’t want to ‘have a storyline.’ Basically, I was more than happy for Amber to go back on the show, but I wanted no part of it other than to sit in the background and cheer her on. I know this goes against all of the ‘fame whore’ claims that have been made about me. Sorry to disappoint.” Despite him refusing to be on the show, Amber forced him. “She told me I had no choice but to appear on the show. More specifically, she said that she couldn’t be with someone who wouldn’t appear. Though I protested a bit, she explained that she had always been upfront with her fans and that Teen Mom followed the story of her life. If someone was going to date her, she informed me, they had to be on camera with her, as she wasn’t someone who only wanted to show fans ‘parts of her life.'”
