You'll Want to Keep an Eye on 'Floribama Shore' Party Girl Kortni Gilson


Fans may have been excited about the Jersey Shore reunion at Deena Cortese’s wedding on Oct. 28, but MTV is hoping they'll become invested in a new group of housemates on the upcoming spin-off, Floribama Shore. The series is coming to the network on Nov. 27, but relocates the action from Jersey to Panama City Beach, FL. The GTL-infused summer fun is still in full force, though, with eight Floribama Shore cast members, including Kortni Gilson.

Since the 21-year-old shows up a number of times in the full season trailer, we decided to get to know her a little better. Read on for everything you need to know about the soon-to-be reality star!

Where is Kortni from?

She and co-star Nilsa Prowant are the two locals on the cast — they both hail from Panama City Beach. Kortni even stayed nearby after high school, attending the city’s own Gulf Coast State College.

What does Kortni do for a job?

As of spring 2017, Kortni was still working as a bartender at the nearby Coyote Ugly. And yes, that means she was dancing on the bar in cut-off shorts, just like Piper Perabo and the gang in the 2000 movie of the same name.

Does Kortni have a boyfriend?

Kortni certainly seems single, as she mostly posts photos of herself with her family — especially her mom and sister — and her female friends. Hey, it’s better to go into the summer unattached, right?

What are some of her other hobbies and talents?

Kortni does dance on bars for a living, so you better believe she has rhythm. In fact, she’s a pretty impressive hooper — a type of dancing with a hula hoop. She also regularly models for the Me Clothing line.

How can I follow her on social media?

Check Kortni out on Instagram, Twitter, and on Snapchat at @kortnigilson.
