You may recognize Nick from the popular CBS series Big Brother or AGT.

The 34-year-old appeared as a houseguest in Season 15 of Big Brother. During his run on the show, you may remember him as the leader of The Moving Company alliance. However, after only living in the BB house for 2 weeks, he was evicted by his fellow houseguests, being backdoored by his own alliance. 

Besides his role on the CBS reality series, the Ohio native was also a contestant on America’s Got Talent. In 2012, Nick performed a science act, creating a large cloud of smoke for his audition. He made it through to the next round, but he was eventually eliminated in the Judges Cut.

Is Nick Haus married?

Though the Blown Away host does not appear to be married, he is off the market. Based on his social media, Nick is currently in a relationship with Hour One Agency founder Jeanann Grubbs. Dating for almost three years, his girlfriend regularly shares pictures of their date nights, travel diaries, and adventures around the world.

“Wearing a suit in 97 degree weather in Kenya was totally worth it...mostly because I was barefoot and my date was looking so dang good,” Nick captioned a selfie pic of the pair. So cute!
