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.

    Beautiful girl!

    Diana (cycle 8), Kortnie (cycle 12), Alexandra (cycle 14) are plus-sized contestants who deserved the title more than Whitney. These girls are more stunning in comparison to her. I don’t care much for Whitney to loathe her, but Kortnie is waaaaaaay more gorgeous than Whitney; so is ALEXANDRA!
    GOSH, these girls are definitely more worthy of the win. Tyra made a huge mistake making cycle 10 the PLUS-SIZED CYCLE.

    The red hair was a bad makeover for her.

    I don’t see “PLUS” here, I see HOT HOT HOT!

    she reminds me of Whitney from cycle 10 so much, they sort of look alike.

      Whitney is so much better then her.

        I agree with you. Kortnie, Diana and Alexandra may look prettier than her in person, but unlike these girls, Whitney looks more like a MODEL. People don’t seem to know the difference between pretty and modelesque. Diana took mediocre photos on the show (and isn’t even hired by even the most obscure modeling agencies in America), Kortnie took lackluster photos (and still does) and Alexandra looked like the dramatic broadway actress, not a model.

        Is Whitney the most modelesque girl? No, but compared to these girls, she is. How can anybody even think with these photos that Kortnie is better? I don’t see a model AT ALL in any of these shots, there’s no life in the eyes, she looks like a really pretty girl taking photos at home and just posted them on MySpace in fact I think she’s worthy of catalogue 101 campaigns. Looking at many of Whitney’s post-ANTM shots, she looks way more photogenic and modely.

        I’m sorry, Kortnie is just not a top model, she’s not even modelesque and Whitney has been 10x more successful than all three of them. And the fact that this dull and insipid-looking girl would even be preferred over someone like Teyona is even more maddening. Right, because it’s perfectly just to eliminate a real modelesque, interesting and different looking-girl over a dull, bland, uninspiring and conventional looking girl who’s only good for commercials. That to me is a joke. Not to be rude, but it’s just the truth. Neither Kortnie, Diana, Alexandra or even Sarah had that particularly strong, model look. That’s why they did not win. Whitney won because she deserved it. Wanted it more than a lot of the other girls, had model potential, was a true role model and was more insecure in her own way, which came across to most as total fakeness.

        And people need to stop hating on Teyona. She too deserved her win, because out of all of the girls of her entire cycle, she, along with Aminat & even Sandra, actually looked like models. Allison, Celia, Kortnie, Tahlia, etc. were a waste of space. Allison only stayed there for entertainment value because she was the ‘weird and quirky’ girl of that cycle, Celia, because of her remarkably fashionable sense and personal style, and Tahlia, because she improved. But when it comes right down to it, none of the girls were actual models to me. People rage on and hate Teyona for winning over Allison, but quite frankly, I’m shocked Allison even made it that far. In fact, I feel Aminat should’ve taken the other spot in the top two, not Allison. Aminat may have been unbelievably inconsistent when it came to photographs, but through all her setbacks and flaws, Aminat was a MODEL. Her booking so many jobs during the episode where they went on go-sees proves her enormous model potential. And post-ANTM wise, Aminat’s more than proven that she’s born for the runway. People should just grow up and accept that everything is not going to go their way.

    The red hair was great….the tan was what looked bad. Clearly, she’s lost the tan, and some weight, don’t know if that’s good or bad. I liked her. I would rather have seen her stick around as opposed to Tahlia or Sandra or Teyona.
