Nicole came into the house and was almost immediately liked by every houseguest. Her social wit led her to form many connections and strengthen her connections with people she had previously played with. For the first two weeks of the game, she was not targeted. It was when Corey rose to power that her and her obvious best friend in the house Nicolas were targeted for being as close as they were. At the end of Week 3, Nicole found herself a final nominee alongside Jack and Aly, two of her closest allies in the game. The votes were stacked against her, but she flipped Renee's vote one minute before the Live Eviction and stayed over Jack when she used her Vote Nullifier she had won during the Week 2 Badge Battle to cancel Julia and Connor's voted. She stayed by a vote of 4 to 3 to 0. She then proceeded to be nominated the next three weeks in a row. For the next three weeks, her allies were picked off one by one and she managed to survive Week 4 by Nicolas asking to be evicted so she could go on and by winning the Week 5 Power of Veto Competition. During Week 6 when Sydney won the Head of Household competition, Nicole was assured safety and it seemed as if the house was going to flip. However when Corey used his Diamond Power of Veto to renominate Nicole and Julia used her power to eliminate the Veto Competition, Nicole was left defenseless and got evicted by a vote of 5 to 2. Aside from her gameplay, Nicole was known for being active in the chat. She frequently tried to get everyone to download Cooking Fever.
