Past Seasons: BB16, BB18
Big Brother History: Stuck in the minority alliance during season 16, Nicole was evicted in a unanimous vote, but came back into the game after winning he Battle Back competition. However she was out again two weeks later during the second double eviction. Nicole came back and won BB18, largely due to her social skills and playing a lowkey game.
What she's up to now: Nicole currently lives back home in Ubly, Michigan with her fiancé Victor Arroyo, who she met during BB18.
I have to say all the news of Kobe has really hit our family hard. Kobe was my first sports idol and a big part of our lives. Those young girls, those mothers, fathers, siblings.. all gone too soon. Life is not fair and I’ll never understand why things like this happen. It’s just so sad. I don’t even know what I would do if Tennessee was taken away from me. After you become a mother you just see things so differently than you ever use to. That child is my whole world and I can’t imagine these families who have to go on now without their babies and loved ones. I cannot even begin to fathom what Vanessa Bryant is going though, or Alexis Antobelli who lost her mother, father and sister. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. We need to live our days understanding that. I don’t know what I would do without my perfect little family but I’m lucky enough to have them today. Count your blessings today and everyday.

The woman I am becoming is fearless, Immune to judgements and completely free to walk in her calling. She’s not perfect and doesn’t pretend to be. She is flawed, she is emotional, she expresses herself. She has the AUDACITY to be herself no matter what room she is in or stage she is on. She’s messy & genuine & someone I look forward to getting to know ❤️ #selflove #selfreflection

#ahmaudarbery crossed my mind every time I ran. Inspired me to keep running. This movement brought up a lot of suppressed emotions and experiences. . . I always figured I could outwork the BS. Maybe I have in some ways but I’m ready for change. I’m running for change. Dedicating resources to change so that the next person can have a equal chance. . . I ran 126.4 miles last month. I’m dedicating those miles to change because those miles helped me. . . . Thank you @colorofchange for working to end practices that unfairly hold black people back and for solutions that move us ALL forward. . . #letsdothis #blm #stopracism ✊🏿✊🏽✊🏻
