Cortney left her North Carolina roots for Manhattan to put herself through school and pursue her dream of becoming a makeup artist. A southern girl in the big city, this 27-year-old grew up in the Bible belt, yet certainly has a rebellious side. She is a performer in a burlesque troupe, “The Hot Box Girls.” Dancing aside, Cortney is extremely religious and comes from a family who puts a major emphasis on faith. Her parents have been married over 30 years and she was ready to find that love too. Never having lived with a significant other, Cortney is learning how to embrace domestic duties, such as, cooking and cleaning. Especially cleaning, since she is known to be messy. She loves taking care of Jason and one of her favorite things to do is to pack him a lunch every day. Cortney believes that her and Jason were made for each other.
