Kortnie Coles was a contestant during Cycle 12 of ANTM.
Kortnie is a 24-year-old model from Houston, Texas who works as a non-profit organizer. She reportedly dated NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. for a brief time.
As the only plus-sized model participating in Cycle 12, Kortnie took strong photos, but was eliminated following the Immigrant Shoot, when the judges said she struggled and produced a photo with a “sour-looking” face. Tyra also went on to say, “The girl we see in this judging room has such an alertness, that even now as I speak you are [wide eyed]. But the girl in you’re pictures is [much different].” Kortnie became the 4th girl eliminated from the show.
Kortnie is currently signed with Wilhelmina Models in New York.
