Childhood and education

Although she was born in Georgia, her parents moved to live in Germany and Nicole stayed there with them until she turned 16.

Nicole’s career and jobs
Nicole launched her career, and has performed in numerous clubs around Atlanta. She became popular thanks to her appearance in the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” show, which she entered because of a ‘dare’ – Nicole was ready for Halloween and one of her dares was to try and appear in the show. Nicole accepted and the two episodes she appeared in made her somewhat popular on the internet.
Nicole appeared in the first two episodes of the show’s second season, and was the loudest person there. She was eliminated in the second episode when the contestants were supposed to split into two groups with two separate roles switching in-between the teams. One team’s goal was to keep a crowd of men entertained by stripping and doing similar things, while the other team had to sell pies in the streets of Hollywood during the day.
Sadly for Nicole, she was chosen as the person who contributed the least, and when she switched to another team, she was the one to earn the least amount of money.
She had to battle Raven in order to stay in the show, and the challenge was to lip sync the “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” song by En Vogue – Nicole lost and her journey in the show ended. Nicole appeared again during the show’s reunion, and because Raven treated everyone badly during the show including Nicole, Raven was now confronted by everyone and she then apologized to all of the girls except to Nicole.
