Other Appearances and Facts Edit

  • As a blogger, Nick used a heavily filtered avatar, making it impossible to tell what he really looked like. Survivor: Kaoh Rong's cast release day was a revelation for many, not least Josh Wigler.[5]
  • In one of his blogs, Nick said: "[Poker players] either overlook or lack the human relationship element of the game. Therefore, the next time you see a poker player cast, fold them quicker than 7-2 off suit."[6] The next poker player cast was Nick's tribemate, Anna Khait, who would criticize Nick for not connecting with people emotionally.
  • The "Urge to Merge" blog[7] under Nick's RHAP author account is actually an April Fool's prank written by Christine LaRivière.
  • Nick appeared on the "Survivor Match Game" on October 6, 2017.[8]
