Fans of reality dating and hook-up shows and fans of wrestling nearly saw a familiar face as the host.
"I auditioned to be the host for Love Island USA, that's how I got hooked on Love Island UK. When I had the audition, I had to get familiar with the show. I got hooked and it made me really want [the role]. When I auditioned, I got a callback and I was really bummed because I was the runner up. Arielle Vandenberg, she's the current host. If she would've said no, I would've been the host," she said.
"Love Island USA" premiered on July 9, 2019 with a third season on the way.
After losing out on "Love Island USA", Nikki did land the "Ex On The Beach" gig, but was pulled at the last minute.
"After I lost the job for Love Island USA, which I was really upset about, I got another audition to host Ex on the Beach on MTV. I got it. This was my heaven. I booked the gig and I was so excited. I couldn't believe I was going to be the new host of Ex on the Beach. Two days before I was leaving -- I'm not going to say names -- I was pulled. Mainly dealt with the reality show I was on. I was so upset," she recalled.
"Ex On The Beach" has run for four seasons on MTV.
Nikki went on to express that she really wants to host a reality dating show.
