#1. Who is Kortni Gilson from Floribama Shore?

Kortni Gilson is almost a native of Panama City Beach, where the first season of Floribama Shore is filmed. This is because she moved there with her family when she was three. As a result of loving the area, she never left, taking jobs in and around her hometown.
One of the jobs that Gilson took was as a bartender at Coyote Ugly. A job that made her a local celebrity of sorts. When not bartending, the brunette beauty modeled for Me Clothing Line. As such, applying for a job as the talent on a reality TV Show was something that was right in Gilson's wheelhouse.
Her knowledge of the area as a local in conjunction with Gilson's personality, made her a perfect choice for Floribama Shore. And overnight, Gilson would go from being recognized locally to being recognized nationally as a result of her exposure to the show.

The two-hour premiere of the show attracted a large audience. Fans witnessed poor choices being made, the possibility of scandals developing, roommates showing interest in one another, and drinking during that time. Drinking in abundance. In essence, Floribama Shore was testing the waters to see if it could compete with reality TV in general as well as other reality shows on the network. And for four seasons, it seemed like MTV had another successful reality show. Fans and cast members were therefore baffled by the news when the network decided to cancel the show, especially since cameras were following cast members to gather footage for Season 5.
Over the course of those seasons, however, fans learned about and followed the lives of cast members Kirk Medas, Gus Smyrnios, Candice Rice, Jeremiah Buoni, Nilsa Prowant, Codi Butts, and Aimee Hall. Kortni Gilson was also part of this group, but she left the show mid-way through Season 3 very abruptly.

Gilson became an instant fan favorite on Floribama Shore. The reality star made for great television viewing, thanks to her hilarious comments and poor decisions made when a little too inebriated.
But not everything is as it seems. And while Gilson was mostly all smiles and laughter (with a dash of rage here and there), there was pain bubbling beneath the surface. After a night of drinking and taking prescription medication, the pain became unbearable. What viewers saw was that Gilson was having a breakdown in the back of a cab headed back to the shore house. But, the breakdown got "so intense" that the cameras stopped rolling.

The next thing viewers knew, Gilson said that she was going to leave the show to work on her mental health. It was not revealed until a later date that the breakdown came from memories that Gilson had of a sexual assault that occurred when she was a teenager.
"When the cameras shut off, I was screaming about all of the sexual assault that happened to me," Gilson explained to Dr. Drew. "I couldn’t tell anybody about it. These were guys that I knew, that I thought I was friends with, which was why I felt so stupid to trust somebody."
Fans thought that Gilson would return for Season 4. However, she made the decision to work on herself rather than return to Floribama Shore. And because of this, Season 3 marked the last time viewers would see Gilson on the small screen.
