Kortney Olson, Submitted



  • Honest? I can’t fault somebody who’s famous for crushing watermelons with her thighs for using that “celebrity” to pimp her (presumably water-melon juice -proof) action wear. But It’s not that valid of a platform for sounding off on all other things under the sun. Crushing watermelons just doesn’t add that necessary gravitas to be an expert on social issues.

    • I disagree, I think it’s a great platform. She’s doing something different, showing that women are all different and beautiful in their own way. Many girls want a “gap” between their thighs, I am confident Kortney does not have a gap, but she is one strong woman who embraces what awesome strength her body holds. Additionally, I think anyone regardless of their platform that is encouraging young girls to embrace their uniqueness and beauty, and not fall into the social media and magazine trap, is doing an amazing thing!

      • What Kudos said!

      • I am famous reject the need to be....................

        I think Kortney would say don’t be like me be someone you made. She would say don’t follow me. Follow no one except where your greatness is taking you. The challenge in life is to not be afraid to commit. It is to find your passion then commit. Kortney’s fame doesn’t lie in her ability to squash a melon. It is because of all the time she spent developing her leg muscles. That didn’t happen in a month. The problem with girls today is they want to be famed by looking famed. Wrong, you only become famous when you earned your fame.

  • She makes fetish videos and that makes her a spokesperson for All Women? Weird.

  • How many of you are going to try to crush a watermelon with your thighs? first chance you get? I gotta try this.
