Nicky is the top male gymnast at The Rock, winning the men's silver medal at Nationals. He is extremely dedicated to his sport and constantly practicing, considering any time not spent working on his routines as time wasted. Nicky is essentially Payson's male counterpart, which is why they get along so well. The two share a kiss in "California Girls", but his agent MJ has other plans that involve him being paired up with Kaylie as the new power couple of gymnastics. Eventually, he decides to move to Denver to escape The Rock drama.
