Who is Aimee Hall? Meet the 'Floribama Shore' star who feared jail time after allegedly breaking a lady's nose
'Floribama Shore', known for its diverse and goofy cast, has truckloads of booze, sex, and stereotypes in store for its loyal viewers. The Season 4 trailer makes it evident that there will be more hookup dramas, excessive drinking, partying, longer nights, and fun brunches. We are ready for it and so is the cast, especially Aimee Hall who says: "I think I am ready for a vacation."
She has been a regular and integral part of the cast. Today, she has amassed an impressive social media following and enjoys the good life but did you know she used to bartend? We were equally surprised. Read on to know more about Aimee and where she comes from.
'Floribama Shore' Season 4: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about MTV hit reality show's next installment
'Floribama Shore' star Aimee says she needs to stop smoking weed so she doesn't eat up all her survivor snacks
Life before 'Floribama Shore'
She was born in Perdido, Alabama on October 1, 1992. She is a bonafide small-town girl and for someone like her to move to Panama Beach City and being a part of an 8-member cast was a lot. Aimee did it anyway because it provided her with an opportunity to live life differently, experience newer shades of friendship, and party like there's no tomorrow.
She may have nailed the MTV audition because she arrived tipsy
The 'Jersey Shore' reboot also enabled her to make a dramatic career shift. She was bartending at The Scrap Yard, a roadhouse in Bay Minette. She was 25 at the time and ready for a completely new summer, one where she could slip into her swimwear and watch sunsets to kingdom come. But the show didn't happen to her until she failed an audition for 'Party Down South'. Later, the producers called her for an interview, for which she arrived fuddled. And that apparently did the trick along with her upfront and no-nonsense personality. "I am not an actress. I'm just me," Hall told AL.com during a phone interview and added: "I have the biggest personality, I know. I'm super-goofy. I'm serious, too. I'm a hot mess."
Aimee's ex-boyfriend got another girl pregnant
What also gave her an edge over scores of people who applied to be on the show was her on-off relationship with her ex-boyfriend who cheated on her, got another girl pregnant. This formed an integral part of her narrative when she began season 1. Soon, she had grown out of her troubled past and appeared more vocal and invested in the goings-on around her. And just like that, it was Season 3 and Aimee was ready to introduce her present-day boyfriend, Dillon Johnson, to the world. "We went through a rocky patch but now we are doing better than ever," she told Champion Daily last year. The couple is going strong. They post pictures of themselves on social media regularly.
She's also an Instagram influencer
Speaking of social media, Aimee is quite the rage on Instagram. She does makeup tutorials, ads, and collaboration posts for a wide range of products, which explains her current net worth of $50,000, the Networth reporter claimed. It wouldn't be wrong to assume that a part of that wealth also comes from the steady paychecks from MTV.
Aimee allegedly punched a lady and was sentenced probation
Unfortunately, a part of it had to be spent on legal proceedings. A civil lawsuit was filed on July 6, 2018, by an individual named Melissa Bensinger against Aimee. The women got into a verbal and physical fight after the latter commented on the show tainting Panama Beach's reputation as a city. Two months later, Aimee was "six months probation and ordered to take an anger management class, as well as pay $4,357.08 in restitution," Distractify reported. There were varying accounts of the fight, one of which claims that Aimee allegedly punched Melissa, broke her nose.
This stirred her. She panicked over the thought of going to jail and what didn't help was all of this played out as a part of her storyline on the show, which meant she had to explain herself and defend her actions incessantly. During a phone call, she assured a friend she never hit the alleged victim in the nose.
"People have gotten in fights before. People get in fights all the time. Why am I all over the media? My name is being blasted," the reality TV star shared during one of her confessional clips from Season 2.
