Nicole Panattoni-Nastazio was a contestant on cycle 1 of ANTM in 2003. She was the third girl eliminated and placed eighth.


Nicole was immensely praised by the judges and the other girls the first two weeks, including having no "out" votes from any judges in the first panel.

However, in episode three, Nicole complained about having her extensions taken out at makeovers because she paid $1,500 for them the day before she left. Mr. Jay later ridiculed Nicole for this. Later, Nicole is constantly trying to call her boyfriend, famous BMX biker Cory Nastazio, and multiple arguments are shown.

When Elyse won the makeup challenge and selected Nicole to share the prize, Nicole rejected because she felt sick, and wanted to talk to her boyfriend some more, which lead to another argument from her and Mr. Jay. She was later eliminated that episode for her weak snake photo and lack of commitment.
