** Kim is this. So many boyfriends, one boyfriend died, some of them don't work out in a relationship, her marriage was annulled, and the last boyfriend she had in the series was using her as a guinea pig for social experiment.

When reach the bar they find out that not only is Chris a woman but they are at a Gay Bar. They're first reaction to this is essentially "Eww". When they try to convince Stanley that Angela is gay he ignores this. Afterwards they get Angela and Chris to get back together while Stanley feels like a fool.

*** It doesn't help that in another episode when her romance novel (with the Professor as the main character, of course) becomes a big hit, Shaquille O'Neal himself shuts everything down by claiming the Professor is nothing but a fraud and a playboy, which is kinda true, with Shaq showing a photo of the Professor out with several women. The Professor then has the audacity to retaliate with the fact that with his publicity, "Why need one woman when you can have them all?". This repulses Nikki's fans and prompts them [[KickTheDog to start a book burning.]]

* TheWoobie: You have to admit, Nikki has been through a lot of stuff, and it doesn't help when her rejections from the Professor and his treatment of her are seriously played out. One episode has her at a support group for the lovelorn, where she has a BreakTheHaughty after claiming she doesn't need to be there before the group leader questions her if she and the Professor are really together, breaking her down as he questioned if he even ''acknowledges'' Nikki.
** Ironically, one episode had her so stressed out that she didn't even acknowledge the Professor himself.
** She also discovered that [[spoiler: she was adopted on ''national television'']] in Family Ties and Lies, because her uncle was so determined to win the prize money.
** The final season opener has her [[spoiler: lonely and depressed over the Professor getting married and Kim leaving for Harvard]], while her [[spoiler: wedding plans]] in the final episode start to fall apart.
