The Courtship brings 16 men in Regency-era clothing to court Nicole Rémy. Nicole is a 26-year-old software engineer from Lakewood, Washington, and she has a background in architectural design. TV Insider notes she has a degree from the University of Southern California and was also part of the USC Song Girls dance team. Additionally, she spent two seasons dancing for the Seattle Seahawks before leaving in July 2020.

Prior to getting cast as the lead in The Courtship, Nicole was supposed to make an appearance on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor. She didn’t appear on the show, though.

Now, on NBC’s dating show, she brought her parents to help her decide who she’ll get engaged to at the end. Additionally, her friend, Tessa Cleary, and her sister, Danie Baker, are there to help. Nicole’s parents, friend, and sister helped pick the first six men of The Courtship cast for her to go on a group date with.

The Courtship spoilers are here for episode 1 — and three of the 16 cast members vying for Nicole Rémy’s love went home.

First, Nicole’s family and friend picked six men for the group date. Dr. Jarrett Schanzer, Captain Danny Kim, Peter Saffa, Caleb Ward, Chandler “Chan” Luxe, and Derek Kesseler went on a date with Nicole first — and it seemed to go well. Next, Nicole picked one man to go on a one-on-one with. She chose Daniel Bochicchio.

Daniel is a real estate agent from Staten Island, New York, and he felt extremely nervous about the date. Despite his nerves, he and Nicole hit it off and kissed under fireworks.

When it came to the elimination, Nicole chose six men to have a traditional dance with. As she danced with them, she spoke to them about her expectations moving forward — and she’d tell them if she wanted them to stay or if she wanted them to leave. Nicole chose Lewis Echavarria, Captain Danny Kim, Chandler “Chan” Luxe, Peter Saffa, Caleb Ward, and Dr. Jarrett Schanzer to dance.

Nicole decided to keep Chandler Luxe, Danny Kim, and Peter Saffa. She sent home Caleb Ward, Lewis Echavarria, and Jarrett Schanzer. Her goodbye with Jarrett was the most awkward of them all, as he offered her a gift that she refused. He then walked out telling Nicole she was making a huge mistake.
