Invasion of the ChampionsTaking a break from fighting crime on the streets of New York, this cop is bringing a blue-blooded attitude to her first season of The Challenge, ready to enforce a zero-tolerance policy for weakness. Having just ended things with her long-term girlfriend back home, newly single Nicole is ready to hit the restart button, stating, "She said it's me or The Challenge, and I chose The Challenge. If I win, I'm moving out of my parents' basement, and maybe getting a dog because girls are a bit more difficult than I thought." Her love hiatus doesn't last long however, as she catches the attention of not one but two Challenge champs, ultimately slipping under the sheets with one. However, Nicole quickly finds out being a rookie is no walk in Central Park when one of her closest friends stabs her in the back. Will Nicole be able to keep the peace, or will she have to put The Underdogs on lockdown?
VendettasThe Real World: Skeletons vet may only be in her sophomore Challenge season, but she has already made it to a final and established herself as one of the strongest girls in the house. During her short Challenge career, however, she has already amassed a few vendettas -- namely former RW roomie Sylvia. But as far as Nicole's concerned, a lost friendship won’t stop her from taking home her first championship.
Double AgentsNicole has proven herself a force to be reckoned with, notching countless daily challenge wins en route to two finals while only seeing one elimination. As a professional firefighter, she possesses both physical skills and the ability to excel under pressure. Maybe her only real weakness (aside from puzzles) has been her susceptibility to romantic distractions, which won't be an issue this time around as Nicole enters the game with a girlfriend back home and is hoping to win enough to be able to have children. If Nicole can keep her focus, she may just be able to make that dream come true.
