Post Big Brother


  • During the HOH competition during week 9, a banner flew over the Big Brother house that was sent by Nicole's husband Jeff saying he felt betrayed over an incident that happened with her and Will that could've been misconstrued. Hardy revealed in the diary room that Nicole was able to speak to her husband.
    • This is the first time where a houseguest is allowed to talk to someone from the outside world.
