Nick & Vicki: Team Bad Ass


I was so ready to bitch about another lame boyfriend/girlfriend team, but as soon as these two tattooed beauties popped on the screen, a slow delicious smile spread across my face. The fringe element are my people. I may not have "sleeves" on my arms, but I'm no stranger to a needle gun after midnight on the outskirts of the French Quarter.

Nick & Vicki are dating and they know they may look odd and strange to some, but, in reality, they're just cool and down to earth. Nick is a pit bull loving bartender and would one day like to start a pit bull rescue because, like him, he feels they're just too misunderstood.

Vicki is a hair stylist and wants to be the next celebrity hair guru. We need another bad ass Sally Hershberger type in the world so maybe Vicki is our gal.

On appearances alone, I wish these two the best. Please to enjoy:

  1. They would be my favorite team if it weren't for that constant annoying repetion of "don't judge the book for it's cover". Who's judging nowadays? - there are probably more people WITH tattoos than without! Yeah, maybe they have more than your standard butterfly in a discreet place, but who cares really. They would be so much more likabale if they drop that "book" and its "cover" thingy. Just MHO.

  2. What's your opinion of this couple now? I'm watching tonight's episode (1st time catching this current season) and he seems like a total dickhead to her! Who the hell treats someone like that?? And I feel like yelling at Vicki to just tell him to eff off! Grrr... I hope she gets away from his toxicity.

  3. He was awful!

    My first impressions are NEVER right... which is precisely why I keep doing them every year.

    Over on the Survivor blog, I actually liked NaOnka! My first impressions are notoriously bad hence the joke.

  4. I am appalled by his abuse of her. I don't see anything appealing about this man *at all.* If he isn't hitting her now, I think it won't be long before he expresses his contempt for her in more that just verbal ways. The man is a pig. Vicki, leave him. You deserve someone who respects you and won't degrade and demean you in front of God and the rest of the world and not seem to think anything of it.

  5. Sparkle, I completely agree. Check out my recap of last night's episode. Click on the banner at the top of the page and that should take you there.

  6. And Nick is charming as ever...last night, repeatedly calling Vicki "Dumb ass." Sheesh, Vicki...what a truly great thing it would be for you, for all abused women, for young girls who think their boyfriends who abuse them and treat them badly are just showing their love... Vicki, dump him on the show! Just say "enough" and walk away from the putz.

  8. For someone who is supposedly so badass, Nick is a HUGE baby. If he hadn't been such a pussy and quit the parakeet challenge, they wouldn't be going into the next leg with a 6 hour penalty. 4am and no sleep in two days Give me a friggin' break. What pansy ass. Doctors, firefighters, shift workers, volunteers... heck... ordinary everyday new parents all over the world deal with worse sleep deprivation than that. Suck it up buttercup. Vicki deserves better.

  9. I'm only writing this because I really hope Nick reads it. What a complete and utter asshole this guy is. Good God, I would have tipped him overboard in Aberdeen Harbour and finished the race without him. I hope Vicki has dumped his abusive, whiny, self absorbed ass by now. To be rid of his toxic attitude would be worth MORE than a million bucks.

  10. I agree! I love Vicki but Nick is a douchebag. I know that the show is edited to a certain degree to cause drama, but he's actually being that way to her over and over again. If he apologizes one more time for mistreating her i'd kick myself for not making it a drinking game. Everytime Nick yells at Vicki you take a shot!

  11. Nick is such a coward and can't complete any tasks. Vicki does all the hard challenges, and he sits back telling her she is doing it wrong, and bitches at her. He gives her no respect or credit. Vicki should find a real man and not a child. If he really cared he would suck it up just because she wants it so bad. He has a chance to win a million dollars, and wants to quit cause it's hard!PLEASE!

  12. omg I am so upset right now!!1 There is NOTHING badass about Nick! He is a douche lord! He treated Vicki worse than a shoe with gum....grrrrr. She is such a sweet and nurturing lady and he is just a petulant child. He probably hits her. Man I wish he could try coming at a sistah like that. There is no telling what I would do but I know I wouldn't still be standing by his side. He is going to cost her the game and he will whine about it thereafter.

  13. I just googled 'amazing race asshole' and this was the first result, which was perfect since it was Nick I wanted to read opinions about!

    Sadly, Vicki is likely too 'battered' to leave him, which is a terrible shame since i agree that leaving him on the show would be awesome and send a great message to other abuse victims.

    The only reality show Nick should be on is The Amazing Loser.

  14. Niki, Dump that loser.. whining irritating loser.

  15. Absolute dickhead! How dare he speak to a woman, let alone his girlfriend like this. Why would she let a man speak to her in this way? I think he should be publicly shamed after the show...maybe it will change him for the better. He seriously needs anger management, and his nappy changed daily.

  16. Vicki, the MOST important decision you make in life is, who you marry or choose to go through life with. It will make you or break you. It is not your responsibility to fix Nick. It is HIS! Get away from him, he WILL ruin your life. You are a beautiful woman inside and out. You are loving, caring, patient(!!!), hard working, I could go on and on from just what little I've seen. You deserve and could easily get much better. Think about the next 50 years! Raise the bar for yourself!

  17. Vicki, dump Nick. You may not want to do it publicly since you're such a gracious lady inside and out. Believe me, he needs you more than you need him. Do it quick before he waste a good part of your life.

  18. Whatever, having tattoos does not make you cool and down to earth - it just means that you like tattoos. He is a total jackass. Vicki should dump him ASAP, and The Amazing Race should buy both of them some books because they are both obviously in need of an education.

  19. Look at the date of this post you moron. It was written BEFORE the season started.

    Had you bothered to read any of my recaps during the season, you'd know I had a huge problem with both Nick and Vicki.

    I'm thinking an IQ test as a prerequisite to reading this blog is in order.

    TAR brings out the idiots more than BB does. Never thought that could be possible.
