Alexa Nikolas

Nicole Bristow (Alexa Nikolas) is a fictional character and one of the main characters on the Nickelodeon TV show, Zoey 101. Nicole is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Bristow. She is the roommate and best friend of Zoey Brooks, Lola Martinez and Dana Cruz her other best friends are Logan Reese, Chase Matthews, Michael Barret, and Quinn Pensky. Nicole is quite bad at sports and struggles in her gym lessons. She owns a blue Jet X and a Tek-Mate, likes to work on her studies and do her homework with her friends. Nicole also likes going to Sushi Rox with her friends and just hanging out with them and sticks beside her friends and proves herself as a great friend. Nicole is a main character in Seasons 1 and 2. Starting in Season 3 (according to Zoey), Nicole is written out of the series after she is sent to an all-girls school for being boy crazy; diagnosed with Obsessive Male Gender Disorder, so Quinn replaces her as Zoey and Lola's roommate for the remaining series. In real life after Season 2 ends, Alexa Nikolas is fired from Zoey 101 following numerous off-screen fights with Jamie Lynn Spears and her character is written out.

Character History

Nicole is from Kansas, where her father owns a juice company. She is the second friend Zoey makes at PCA and one of her roommates in Season 1 and Season 2. She admires Zoey for her good ideas, and enjoys coming to her when she needs help. In Season 1, it is discovered that she is "boy-crazy" and bad at sports, particularly disc golf and basketball. Nicole is a typical girly girl who can be a little ditsy yet very sensitive. She also fears the thought of new roommates after her rivalry with Dana Cruz in Season 1, but gets along with Lola Martinez in Season 2.

Nicole is also a straight-A student, but kept getting distracted by the cute boys in her class, until she was hypnotized to see them only as her grandfather. After the second season, Nicole's parents sent her to an all-girls boarding school after Nicole was diagnosed with Obsessive Male Gender Disorder ("OMGD"). Although Zoey says it won't be for too long and that she will come back, she is never seen to return, although it's possible she returned to PCA after the final episode. She is mentioned several times throughout Season 3, but is not mentioned in Season 4. The real reason the character left was her decision to leave the show during the filming of the Spring Break-Up Part 2. She appeared in 26 episodes, including one TV movie, "Spring Break-Up." She also appeared in flashbacks in the episode "PCA Confidential."


Zoey Brooks

Zoey was the first person Nicole met at PCA. When she discovered she was her new roommate, Zoey and Nicole got along a lot of the time and barely argued. Nicole did get upset some times with Zoey when she wasn't on her side in an argument with Dana Cruz, Nicole's second roommate. Nicole and Zoey became best friends almost instantly in the series. Nicole supports Zoey in her arguments with Logan Reese, particularly in the boys vs. girls basketball game although Nicole is bad at sports. During Season 2, Zoey and Nicole were still good friends and had one falling out in the episode The Election. Zoey was the first person Nicole told about leaving PCA and still remained friends and kept in contact. In real life however, their actresses (Jamie Lynn Spears and Alexa Nikolas) don't get along with each other, despite being friends on the show.

Dustin Brooks

Nicole and Dustin don't have that much interaction, but they appear to be close friends, and have never argued or fought.

Dana Cruz

Dana was the second person Nicole met at PCA and her second roommate. Nicole and Dana constantly fought and Zoey had to break them up, towards the end of the first season, Nicole and Dana had made peace and were friends but would still have arguments. Nicole was glad to find out that Dana wouldn't return to PCA for their second year and made friends with Lola Martinez, her new roommate.

Lola Martinez

Lola became Nicole's new roommate after Dana moved out, Nicole at first didn't like Lola until she found out that her weirdness was just an act and then Nicole and Zoey pretended to have a fight to prove to her that they could act too. After that, Nicole and Lola soon became best friends and only fought several times throughout they both wore Flipflops together most of the time in PCA Season 2. Nicole sometimes disagreed with Lola's ideas like in the episode Time Capsule when Nicole didn't like that Lola didn't put anything in the capsule and sometimes Lola would disagree with Nicole. The two still remained friends after Nicole left PCA. It's clear that Nicole liked it better at PCA with Lola than with Dana.

Logan Reese

Nicole met Logan when she and Zoey were challenged to a basketball match. After the two became friends although, Logan's selfishness can cause arguments between them, they remained friends and hung out together at Sushi Rox and other places, after Nicole left they both remained friends.

Chase Matthews

Nicole and Chase became friends through Zoey and never had an argument during the series. Nicole was always on Zoey's side whenever she and Chase were arguing, but she and Chase become friends again when he and Zoey make up. When Nicole left PCA, she and Chase remained friends.

Michael Barret

Nicole met Michael on her first day at PCA and became friends. Throughout the series, they were good friends and never argued. After Nicole left PCA, it is unknown if she and Michael remained in contact.


Nicole is quite close with her parents. It was revealed in the episode, Prank Week, that when Nicole has a bad dream, she would climb in bed with her mom. After Nicole got diagnosed with OMGD sometime after the second season, her parents enrolled her at an all-girls boarding school.


Nicole is present for 26 episodes out of 65 total throughout the series as she is present for all 13 episodes for Seasons 1 and 2. She is mentioned 7 times in Season 3 "Surprise" and appeared in flashbacks in Season 3 "PCA Confidential." She does not appear at all nor even mentioned in Season 4 and Spring Break-Up is the only Zoey 101 TV movie Nicole appears in. 

Personality traits

Nicole is Zoey's roommate and best girl friend. Nicole's a bundle of energy who's extremely peppy and talks a mile a minute—oh, and she's a tad boy-crazy too. But Nicole is also very loyal and trustworthy, and Zoey knows she can always count on her when she needs a friend. Her personal rule of thumb is "Better late than sweaty!" She often has arguments with Dana; Nicole gets along much better with her Season 2 roommate Lola Martinez. Nicole is also very sensitive. In "Disc Golf" she admits she is not very good at sports. She is also very perky and loves PCA because, "It has cute boys, it's across from the beach, it has cute boys, has a swimming pool, and did I mention cute boys?" In one episode it is said she is a straight-A student. All of her bathing suits seen are bikinis.
