She starts rubbing herself on all the guys in the house and when they ignore her, she becomes Ms. Drama Queen and goes upstairs to the bed on the deck and pouts. The boys take to the hot tub and Nicole gets into the Jacuzzi and starts to get on all the men. The other girls are disgusted with the fact that Nicole is in her bra and thong in the Jacuzzi. The boys talk about how Nicole is such a whorey Jersey girl. Nicole passes out while everyone leaves. Nicole wakes up and calls her Dad and the rest of the roommates are at a carnival. Sammi and Mike hook up by holding hands and the entire time, Nicole keeps trying to figure out the phone in the house. Jenni’s boyfriend keeps calling. The roommates get back and Nicole tells Jenni that her boyfriend called. Everyone is shocked that she didn’t mention that she had one. The next day, the group wake up and Nicole is sick in the bathroom from partying too much while the rest of the roommates leave to go to meet with Danny. They arrive at the T-Shirt shop and Danny asks where Nicole is. Later Nicole comes into the T-Shirt shop and Danny tells that she has this one chance. She is very serious and apologizes.

She tells that she wants to be liked. Sammi and Mike hit it off still and Mike cooks dinner. The roommates try to say a prayer and Vinny is a kid all the way. Nicole tells that she is sorry and that wants to have fun. Sammi tells that she appreciates that and they tell that all is forgiven. Later that night, Pauly D and Mike want to go fishing for girls and see three girls down in the street and they invite them in. They go to the hot tub and Angelina and Sammi want to go up there to spy on the boys, but Ronnie tells them not to. The girls go upstairs anyways and see that the boys got Jersey Whores. Mike sees that Sammi is there and is hesitant to get with the girls. He gets out of the hot tub and Sammi tells him that she doesn’t care what he does with other girls. He goes back in the hot tub and one of the girls takes off her bra and underwear off. Jenni gets in downstairs and Angelina and Sammi talk about the guys in the Jacuzzi with the some slutty girls. The guys get done hanging out and the girls invite them to their place. They agree and the girls go downstairs to wait. However, when the guys get back inside, the girls are not happy about the girl taking off her underwear in the Jacuzzi. The girls try to get inside and the other roommates tell them to leave. They tell that it is the same if they bring in a guy and wouldn’t want to see them kissing them. Ronnie tells that is why he told them not to bring in the girls.
