Meet the New Cast of ‘Floribama Shore’ & Watch the First Trailer

“Expect to see us hawking Fit Tea on Instagram within the year!”

It’s out with the GTL and in with the PCB as the “Shore” franchise makes its return to MTV this month with Floribama Shore!

MTV has announced the second show in the ‘Shore’ franchise will follow eight young adults as they spend the summer on the shores of Panama City Beach… and undoubtedly embarrass themselves along the way.

SallyAnn Salsano’s 495 Productions is the team behind this Southern social experiment of a show and yes, that’s the same team who introduced us to the Seaside Heights crew eight years ago. Sally and her crew are no doubt hoping ‘Floribama Shore’ will have the same success as ‘Jersey Shore,’ which ran for six seasons and launched the reality TV careers of Snooki, JWOWW and the rest of the “T-shirt Time” gang.

MTV released the first full trailer for ‘Floribama Shore’ this week and while the lack of poofs, fist pumps and orange bodies is noticeable, viewers are still promised a season full of fighting, nights at the club, hooking up and trips to the gym.

The cast of partiers set to embarrass their families while on the Gulf Coast includes 22-year-old Jeremiah Buoni of Amelia Island, Florida, 25-year-old Codi Butts of Westminster, South Carolina, 21-year-old Kortni Gilson of Panama City Beach, 24-year-old Aimee Hall of Perdido, Alabama, 25-year-old Kirk Medas of Atlanta, 23-year-old Nilsa Prowant of Panama City Beach, 24-year-old Candace Rice of Memphis, Tennessee, and 22-year-old Gus Smyrnois of Tallahassee, Florida.

MTV describes ‘Floribama Shore’ as the story of these young adults as they party it up on Panama City Beach and “put the real world on hold for just a little bit longer,” which is code for “these eight people are willing to let us film them acting a fool in exchange for a small profit and the hope of landing a social media sponsorship or two.”

‘Floribama Shore’ premieres Monday, November 27 on MTV.

  1. This will not be near as popular as Jersey Shore. They tried to re-create Jersey Shore using, “rednecks,” with Buckwild and it did not go well. I wonder why they are trying again. I in no way intend on this to be mean, but the cast on this new show is not near as attractive as the cast on Jersey Shore. I think that also contributed to not only the shows success, but also the success of the cast after the show was finished.

  2. As somebody that grew up in Pensacola, Florida, and now lives in South Alabama, I feel the need to tell MTVA that it’s “Flora-Bama” not “Floribama”.

  3. I don’t think they can recreate the success of Jersey Shore. They were indigenous species in Jersey & surrounding areas. Heck they were jus caricatures characters, Vinnie the only true Italian with “Guido” roots wasn’t anything like the rest of them in the beginning.

    This is all just southerners. Meh. And JS got a huge break from Snooki being punched

  4. I don’t think these production companies realize that the magic of Jersey Shore and early seasons of the Real World/Road Rules/The Challenges is that those casts had no idea what the heck they were doing or getting themselves into. It was far more genuine of a viewing experience because the shows were the actual *experiments* they are marketed to be. I guarantee you that at least a handful of the Floriwhatever Shore cast members already have managers and/or some game plan to capitalize off of their fame after the season ends. The jig is up, we know most of this crap is staged based off of market research on what will garner the most ratings and because of that people don’t care anymore.

    $20 says this doesn’t pull in the ratings to go 1/2 as far as Jersey Shore did, in terms of seasons or fame for the cast after the show. Jersey Shore is now a pop culture symbol, it is the Michael Jackson of trash TV. Throwing a bunch of people into a house and getting them drunk doesn’t mean you can recreate that, just like throwing on a red leather jacket and moonwalking doesn’t make me the King of Pop.
