Can reality TV lightning strike twice? MTV certainly hopes so. The cable network is busy hyping Floribama Shore, a quasi-sequel to its hit Jersey Shore, boasting an all-new cast of suntanned, drama-prone twenty-somethings.
“Set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that stretches all the way to Alabama, Floribama Shore is the story of eight young adults who come to spend the summer in the hottest beach town on the Gulf Coast, Panama City Beach, to party it up and put the real world on hold for just a little bit longer,” MTV explains in a press release.
“But each is armed with incredible life experiences and standing at a crossroads, whether it’s ending a relationship, tasting independence for the first time, or trying to escape the past. This coming of age story captures the very real thrill and angst of being young and trying to figure out the future with a group of people you’ll come to call family,” the description continues.
Ahead of the show’s premiere on Monday, Nov. 27th, at 10 p.m. EST, scroll down to learn more about each of the cast members!
We don’t know if Jeremiah's down with the other letters of Jersey Shore’s “GTL” mantra, but this 22-year-old from Amelia Island, FL, definitely has the gym regimen down! When he’s not pumping iron, he’s striking a pose as a male model on the rise. "I love being a gentlemen. But I also have to be a little douche-baggy so women know I'm not too good for them," he tells In Touch.
We don't know much about this 25-year-old from his Twitter profile — other than that he's from Westminster, SC, he’s a fan of the Clemson Tigers, he’s a self-professed South Carolina Democrat, and he supported Hillary Clinton last November. Codi says viewers can expect plenty of drama between the new roomies. "There was some disrespectful arguments and cuss-outs."
This 21-year-old models both for cameras and for thirsty bar patrons — she used to bartender at the local Coyote Ugly watering hole! Plus, Kortni is actually a Floribama native, so to speak, as a resident of Panama City Beach, FL. "Even though I say I hate it sometimes, I wouldn't want to leave. It's my safe place," she shares.
From the looks of her Instagram profile, this 24-year-old from Perdido, AL, never says no to a selfie opportunity, bless her! Perhaps she should have said no to the Native American costume she wore for Halloween this year, though. Aimee headed to the shore after a bad breakup. "My boyfriend of 10 years got another girl pregnant," she reveals.
When he’s not dressing up as the Joker or as Batman, this 25-year-old Atlanta dude is rockin' serious style. "I watched every season of Jersey Shore, and I relate most to Pauly D because he loved music and gave no f–ks!" Kirk explains.
This 23-year-old from Panama City Beach, FL, recently taunted Instagram followers with two truths and a lie: She’s never had a speeding ticket, she can say ‘Hello, how are you?’ in six languages, and she was a college cheerleader. (The lie: She’s never had a speeding ticket — she’s had multiple!) Nilsa, who filmed the show after the breakup of her three-year marriage, tells In Touch, "At my lowest point, I had seven people to bring me back up."
In only 24 years, this Memphis gal has been a host, a model, an actress, a writer, and now, a reality star. Talk about a multi-hyphenate talent! Candace also tells Instagram fans she’s “the goofiest woman you’ll ever meet,” though she admits she was hoping to find love on the show.
Romance novel fans out there might recognize this 22-year-old from Tallahassee, FL — his chiseled physique has graced the cover of many steamy paperbacks, as his Instagram profile attests! Despite his player tendencies — "My friendliness can come off as flirting, and sometimes I lead people on" — he'd love to settle down in the next five years.
