America's Next Top Model

Kortnie Coles Reeves was a contestant on cycle 12 of ANTM in 2009, where she placed tenth.


Kortnie was the only plus-size model in the cycle. She revealed in castings that she was dating NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

She was good friends with Allison and Celia in the house, and was known as the goofball of the group.

She was eliminated in episode five over Sandra for not having the most striking portfolio of the cast. Celia tried to save Kortnie by throwing Tahlia under the bus, but it didn't work.[1][2]

She was in the magazines More, Real Simple, Woman's Day, Plus Model, Weight Watchers, O, The Oprah Magazine, Galore, Good Housekeeping, Gosee and The Australian Women's Weekly.[3][4][5] She was in an ad for Olay Regenerist and Special K.[6][7] She modeled clothes and lingerie for Bare Necessities, Avenue, Talbots, Zulily, Kohl's, Miraclesuit, Swimsuits for All, Parfait and Soma Intimates.[8]
