Hayden Says Watching Nicole & Corey On 'Big Brother 18' Is "Absolutely Weird," But He Still Supports Her

This week on Big Brother, Hayden returned to talk about his ex-girlfriend and former showmance partner, Nicole, and it was awkward to say the least. Nicole and Hayden met on Big Brother two years ago during Season 16, and quickly became one of the show's most adorable, showmances. Unlike other reality TV couples, Nicole and Hayden actually took their relationship into the real world, dating for a while after the show. However, when Nicole returned for BB18 she made it clear that she was no longer with Hayden, but just because they are broken up doesn't mean Hayden isn't supporting her. That was proven to viewers on Thursday night when Hayden talked about Nicole on Big Brother 18 , including her new showmance.

In a pre-taped segment, Hayden swore that, though he and Nicole had gone their separate ways, they were "absolutely still friends." But, just because they're still friends doesn't mean he's totally comfortable watching her get steamy with her new Big Brother showmance partner, Corey. "It is absolutely weird watching Nicole getting her showmance action," Hayden admitted, laughing adorably. But like a true gentleman, Hayden added that Nicole should do whatever makes her happy. "Nicole, I'm rooting for you! I hope you win," he said.

It's nice to see that some showmances aren't just for show and that Hayden and Nicole have managed to remain friends. We'll have to wait and see whether or not Corey and Nicole's Big Brother relationship also lasts outside the house.
