PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Reality TV stars stepped into the reality of Panama City since Hurricane Michael ripped through the Panhandle.

"Seeing they need our support, it definitely gives me a place in my heart to feel like I can actually do something for the community," said Floribama Shore Cast Member Jeremiah Buoni.

Which is exactly what the cast of the Floribama Shore did Wednesday by volunteering their time with Habitat for Humanity.

"It's actually a really unique experience that we get to come here and be, you know, hands and boots on the ground and we're actually here with the homeowner as well, helping her through this whole process," said Floribama Shore Cast Member Gus Smyrnios.

Before the cast picked up a hammer and nails, they got to see what something like this means to the future Habitat homeowner.

"You know, she said a prayer as we were building the house, right before we started, and it was very emotional. You know, she got worked up, everybody got a little worked up," said Smyrnois.

"You know, it's been wonderful. I wouldn't... I'm about to cry so... I can't do it anymore," said Future Habitat Homeowner Renee Jones.

While the cast helped Jones build the foundation to support her home, Jones now says the show has her support.

"I never really stopped to watch the show, but I'm gonna watch it when I leave here," said Jones.

"We're here to help. We're here to show our support and make that these homeowners have a place to be at," said Buoni.

The cast is working on the Jones home until Friday.
