Who is Nicole Young? Meet Selling Sunset star joining for season 6
Here's everything you need to know about Selling Sunset's newest recruit, Nicole Young.
Everyone's favourite reality show is back, complete with more lavish parties, breathtaking sunsets and million-pound listings.
That's right, folks: Selling Sunset is back on our screens for season 6, and it's certainly not short of drama.
The sixth season brings fan favourites such as Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald and Heather El Moussa back onto our screens, but also introduces fans to plenty of newcomers, including Bre Tiesi and Nicole Young.
And it's fair to say that Young has already caused quite a stir at the agency, especially with Chrishell.
So, who is Nicole, and what has she said about joining the prestigious real estate brokers? Read on to find out...
Who is Nicole Young?
Minnesota-born Nicole studied marketing and public relations at Baylor University in Texas, before making a permanent move to Los Angeles in 2007.
She actually joined the Oppenheim Group in 2014, and boasts that she has made more than $100 million in sales over the years.
Away from the cameras, Nicole is happily married to hubby Brandon Young, who she tied the knot with in 2017.
And if you think she looks familiar, that’s because Nicole has actually made several cameo appearances in Selling Sunset over the years.
The reality star officiated her pal (and now co-star!) Mary Fitzgerald’s wedding to French model Romain Bonnet in October 2019, and viewers caught a glimpse of her performing those duties in the season 2 finale.
She was also spotted during season 4 at the birthday party for Niko and Zelda – the two dogs that Fitzgerald and her ex Jason Oppenheim co-parent.
How old is Nicole Young?
Nicole is 38 years old.
Is Nicole Young on Instagram?
Yes, her handle is @itsnicoleyoung.
Who is Nicole Young’s husband?
Nicole has been married to husband Brandon Young since April 2o17. On their fifth wedding anniversary, Nicole wrote: "4.22.17 was the best day of my life, not because our epic wedding was the best party we’ve ever thrown, but because it was the day I became your wife and the day we became a family."
What is Nicole Young’s net worth?
According to Celebs Week, Nicole's net worth is a whopping £2.41 million.
What has Nicole Young said about joining Selling Sunset?
Sharing her exciting news with her 23,000 Instagram followers in August last year, Nicole wrote: “The cat’s out of the bag ya’ll! I’m so excited to be joining the cast and my longtime friends and @theoppenheimgroup co-workers on Selling Sunset!!! Let’s do this.”
Nicole later told People magazine that she had turned to her good friend and co-star Mary Fitzgerald for advice before filming for the show.
“I've talked to Mary about everything under the sun and asked her a million questions," she revealed. "She kept reiterating, 'Just be yourself. Don't try to be anything you're not. Don't try to be anything that you think people want you to be or say what they want you to say. Just be you.'"
Nicole was actually part of the original line-up to join Selling Sunset in 2019, but “got cold feet” and backed out before filming began.
"I've grown personally and professionally a lot. At the end of the day, it's an incredible opportunity and a rise-to-the-occasion kind of moment,” she continued of her decision to join the show now.
What happened between Nicole Young and Chrishell Stause?
During season six of the show, viewers watched as Nicole raged about how Chrishell got credit for some real estate sales she had completed three years earlier - and claimed boss Jason Oppenheim had added Chrishell, who he went on to date, to the listing because he favoured her.

Surprised by Nicole taking issue with her, Chrishell then explained how she didn't take any commission for the properties before they sold, and claimed she didn't realise Nicole was upset about it.
After the scenes aired, Chrishell took to Instagram to share screenshots of text messages from Nicole before filming for the series began - in which Nicole asked if she could take her to lunch or happy hour to “pick her brains” about appearing on the show.
Chrishell also told ET, "I think I had expected a little bit of respect with someone coming new into the group, and she had reached out - and we were great friends before this! I was excited for her. She asked for advice, and I was trying to help her.
“So the fact that she had been plotting a plan, and I didn't know it until, here she was with a full camera crew around me? Obviously that just set the tone, because I don't like feeling like you've been plotting something, and it's something from so long ago."
