Nicole, the winner of last season, and Victor, best remembered for being a competition beast, confirmed Friday on Twitter that they have been dating for the past three months.
In a video message shared on Big Brother's official Twitter account, Nicole announced she had a "life update," and then Victor swooped in and gave her a kiss on the cheek.
"Nicole is my girlfriend! Yes," Victor, 26, said with a big smile.
Nicole, 25, quickly agreed, "Yes," before Victor also planted a kiss right on her lips.
"But, yeah, that's it!" Nicole said laughing and blushing, as she turned away from the cameras and yelled, "Awkward!"
Nicole and Victor seemingly had no romantic interest in each other while competing on Big Brother in Summer 2016. Not only did viewers fail to see sparks between the pair, but Nicole was also dating Corey Brooks -- and they had a long-lasting showmance on the series.
But Nicole and Corey split shortly after the Season 18 finale aired.
"Remember that, no matter how tightly you hold onto someone, it won't ever feel the same as it does with them holding you back. You have to learn to tell the difference. India Hendrie #luckygirl #ThatTimeIFellInLoveOnTheSantaMonicaPier," Nicole captioned a montage of photos of Victor and herself Thursday on Instagram.
The blonde beauty and Victor apparently hit it off -- as more than friends -- earlier this summer.
"Post-Big Brother [last year], Nicole and I stayed friends. We talked a lot as friends, and her life and my life, we were just an open book. Everything came together for the premiere of Big Brother 19, where we were in New York and we just clicked. From then on, it was, I guess it was a love story," Victor explained to Entertainment Tonight.
"And now, she's my girlfriend. It's exciting. I'm trying to move over there to Michigan and stay over there with her and kind of see how that plays out. But it's exciting. She's freaking awesome. A lot of people don't know her beyond Big Brother, but she's a sweetheart in real life and I just love her to death."
Victor saidBig Brother fans probably don't realize how "accepting" Nicole is. Victor told ET that he became a little wild and crazy when he got a taste of fame after his stint on Big Brother but Nicole saw through his flaws and accepted his past.
"Now, I'm a loyal guy, and I'm only with her," Victor, a Louisiana native, noted proudly.
On August 23, Nicole -- who also previously dated Hayden Voss, whom she met when they both competed on Big Brother's sixteenth season -- shared a photo of Victor and herself kissing as she was standing on her tiptoes. The cute photos had fans talking about the status of their relationship.
Victor was best friends and close allies with Paul Abrahamian last season, and Paul is now playing onBig Brother 19. Nicole, ironically, defeated Paul for the $500,000 grand prize in the Season 18 finale. About The Author:Elizabeth Kwiatkowski
