Nicole Franzel is the winner of Big Brother 18 (US), who first appeared on Big Brother 16 (US).

In BB16, Nicole was best known for her showmance with Hayden Voss, and being a competition threat: winning 3 HOH's and 2 BOTB's. After her ally Jocasta Odom was blindsided during the first half of the first Double Eviction, Nicole was left on the bottom along with Hayden and Donny Thompson. She and Hayden were nominated during the second half of the first double eviction, and Hayden was evicted. In week 7, she was evicted by a unanimous 6-0 vote. However, she managed to return to the house by winning the Jury Buyback competition. In week 9 she was nominated against Donny and ultimately survived eviction. In week 10, she was nominated as a pawn against Christine Brecht. Despite Christine winning the Power of Veto, Derrick Levasseur wanted to keep her, and HoH Caleb Reynolds wanted to backdoor Frankie Grande. However, after Nicole told Derrick he reminded her of Dan Gheesling, he decided to turn on her. He convinced Caleb not to backdoor Frankie. She was ultimately evicted in a unanimous 4-0 vote during the first half of the second double eviction. She finished in 7th place and was the 5th member of the jury.

In BB18, she was best known for her under the radar gameplay, showmance with Corey Brooks, and avoiding nomination until day 91. She joined the 8-Pack alliance in week 1. Nicole was in a comfortable position throughout the first half of the season. However, when Zakiyah Everette was blindsided in the first half of the Double Eviction, Nicole along with Corey and their ally Paulie Calafiore were on the outs, though they regained power during the second half of the double eviction as Corey became the Head of Household. However, Paulie was evicted in week 8 leaving Nicole and Corey on the bottom. Despite being in the minority, they managed to survive the next week by manipulating HOH Natalie Negrotti into targeting Paul Abrahamian and Victor Arroyo, and managing to convince James Huling, who was the swing vote to align with them and evict Victor. However, after Victor returned by winning the jury buyback, and Nicole became the HOH, she decided to turn on James and work with Paul and Victor. She ended up casting the tie breaker vote to evict Michelle Meyer. In week 11, she joined Corey and Paul in evicting Natalie. However, after Corey won HOH at the final 5, both he and Nicole flipped on Paul and Victor and worked with James to evict Victor for the third and final time. However, when Paul became the HoH at the final 4, Nicole and Corey were nominated by Paul. This was Nicole's first time on the block all season. After Paul won the Power of Veto, he left the nominations the same. Nicole survived as James cast the sole vote to evict Corey. Despite losing part 3 of the final HOH, she was taken to the final 2 by Paul. Her under the radar gameplay and the jury's distaste towards Paul won her the game in a close 5-4 vote, and she became the first female to defeat a male in the final 2.

Biography

Big Brother 16

Age: 21
Hometown: Ubly, Mich.
Current City: Ubly, Mich.
Occupation: Recent Nursing Graduate
Three adjectives that describe you: Nerdy, flirty and classy.
Favorite Activities: Eating, cuddling and shopping. I like to hang with my friends and pull pranks on people. Also, I like to study because that is what I do most often.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house: Forming an alliance you can trust. Going into the Big Brother house thinking someone is going to have your back might be the craziest thought yet. Also, not seeing familiar faces will be difficult too.
Do you have a strategy for winning Big Brother?: Ideally, I would want to align with a male who would excel in the physical competitions and have a secret final 2 deal and have separate alliances on top of that. I want to win the first HOH so everyone can come to me and I can feel them out and see who I think I could trust.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most: Dan because he is intelligent and cocky which made for good TV. Ian was one of my favorites too. He can talk nerdy to me anytime. Also, Jordan was too cute and sweet not to love.
What are you afraid of: Heights are a big one and surgery. I've been in the operating room and it isn't pretty. Also, sharks and ghosts.
What is the accomplishment you are most proud of: Getting a callback from Big Brother Casting. This is a dream, I'm still having tachycardia.
Finish this sentence: My life’s motto is… All or nothing.
What would you take into the house and why: 1. My vintage spoon bracelet, I wear it every day, it's from my mom and I am superstitious. 2. Starbucks/coffee- I get really weird on caffeine and think of really good ideas when I drink it. 3. A picture of my family because I know that I will miss them.
What would you do if “Big Brother” made you famous: Maybe I could hire someone to blow dry my hair because that is a workout.

Nicole has dreamt of moving into the Big Brother house since she was 8 years old and would love to have a showmance with someone like Ian.[1]

Big Brother 18

Age: 23
Hometown: Ubly, MI
Current city: Ubly, MI
Occupation: ER nurse
Three adjectives that describe you: Classy, flirty, and adventurous.
Favorite activities: Watching basketball and hockey, cuddling, coffee dates, traveling, and shopping!
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house? Being away from my family and missing their love and support. I will miss my daily talks with my mom.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most? Frank Eudy [from Season 14] because he was very trustworthy and loyal to his alliances and ally. He had to fight to stay in the house continuously and didn't crack under pressure.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game? Yes, there are always twists that change your strategy, so a good social game is definitely needed. I plan on finding a great alliance, staying loyal, and being very observant. It's easy to get emotionally invested in people while playing this game, but that’s something I need to control better this time around. I'm very emotional and get attached quickly, so I need to keep my guard up a little longer, be sneaky, and play the game hard.
My life's motto is... Make the most of your situation.
What would you take into the house, and why? First would be a journal because I like to write out my thoughts and feelings as a way of stress-relief. Also, it helps me stay focused. Next, I'd want my pups because they are better cuddlers than any human I know. Finally, my ring because it's from my mom and it's meaningful.[2]
