'Big Brother' Season 22 finalist Nicole Franzel had dreamed up a fairytale wedding with fiance Victor Arroyo. They had marked October 3 for their big day but according to a Cheatsheet report, it has been pushed to December due to the pandemic-induced restrictions. The exact date is yet to be revealed.

While Nicole has established herself as a 'Big Brother' regular – she was in Season 16 and 18 as well – not much has been reported about Victor apart from the fact that he dotes on Nicole and does not shy away from expressing those feelings on social media as well.

So, who is Victor?

He's a fitness enthusiast who entered the Big Brother house thrice in his season (18). Even though he met Nicole while filming for the show. While Victor was closer to Paul Abrahamian and Jozea Flores, Nicole dated Corey Brooks, which fizzled out as quickly as it happened.

Nicole and Victor developed romantic feelings for each other only after the reality show was over, they would chat often. They were more like friends and made great efforts to know and learn about each other rather than taking the big leap. The couple was in New York City for 'Big Brother' Season 19 premiere when everything came together. And Victor realized she was the one for him.

Interestingly, 'Big Brother' is not Victor's only stint on TV. Between 2018 and 19, he featured on 'The Challenge: Vendettas' and 'The Amazing Race 31.' But the reality television star made a career switch and trained to become a law enforcement officer. He said he was inspired by his sister and father to take up the profession.

The proposal

It was a complete surprise for Nicole who said yes to Victor's sudden move to pop the question. “It felt like everything came together and it was just so right,” Victor recalled and told ET Online: “Like, wow. We can really handle situations well together and, yeah, I want to marry this girl.”

Catch the 'Big Brother' Season 22 finale play out through the week starting tonight on CBS, Wednesday and Thursday. For more information, check your local listings.
