In 2012, she created her Instagram account but it never really gained attention except for a few of her close friends who became followers.
Instagram is a photo and video sharing website owned by Facebook. It has become one of the most popular social networking services in the world with over a billion in registered users and over 500 million daily users. One of the reasons for the popularity of the website is it features as it allows users to edit their photos easily through filters. Their content can then be shared to the public or to pre-approved followers. The website continues to increase in popularity despite numerous criticisms about the service in the past, particularly in its abrupt changes and treatment towards its policy.
In 2017, Trautman’s popularity started to increase significantly when she was cast in the reality series called “Siesta Key” by MTV. The show follows a group of friends who live in the area as they manage their personal lives and their relationships. The show’s first season had a total of 18 episodes while a second season aired in 2019 with the show also set to continue towards a third season. The show’s name is a reference to the barrier island in Florida known as Siesta Key. It is located in between the Gulf of Mexico and Roberts Bay.
Part of Siesta Key lies within the boundary of Sarasona, Florida, four main districts, and is known for its sandy beaches. The community consists largely of condominiums, single family homes, retail shops, and art galleries. According to the US Census, over 7,000 people live in the area. Trautman’s character is tagged as the alpha female of the group, being best friends with the leader of their clique Alex Kompothecras. Other cast members of the show include Juliette Porter, Kelsey Owens, Madisson Hausburg, Garrett Miller, and Brandon Gomes. The show starts with a love triangle between Alex, Juliette, and Madisson.
Criticisms and Controversies
Prior to airing, the show gained a lot of criticism and controversy due to main cast member Alex being filmed along with four Florida men in an act of animal cruelty, which became viral. According to several reports, the men started dragging a live shark behind a boat, and it ended with Alex being seen shooting the shark in front of the camera. Aside from that, investigations towards his online accounts revealed that he had uploaded racist photos on Instagram, which prompted various reality personalities to speak up about the issue. Cast members from “Vanderpump Rules” and “The Hills” petitioned against the show continuing.
There was also a premiere party that was set to be attended by the cast, but it was cancelled after death threats were made against them. Despite this initial controversy, MTV opted to continue with airing the show, but it’s also gained a lot of criticism from locals, especially those actually from Siesta Key and nearby Saratosa, stating that the community the show depicts isn’t really related to the actual community there, as the majority of people in Siesta Key are significantly older. They also criticized the show for portraying it in such a light, and possibly attracting unwanted visitors.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Trautman is in a long term relationship with her boyfriend for over two years now. The show indicated that she is interested in Brandon Gomes, though the two have not yet developed a relationship. Many viewers state that her interest in him is likely fabricated to create a story for the reality show, especially with her post confirming that not all details of the show are real. This comes in line with numerous pseudo-reality shows which market themselves as real, though most of the characters and the story is scripted.
