Nicole Ramos, who appeared on MTV’s Ex on the Beach and multiple seasons of The Challenge, has officially become engaged!

The reality TV star and her fiance recently shared a getaway to a tropical location where he popped the question with a ring in hand, and she said “Yes.”

That prompted many former castmates to react to the big announcement, including Nicole’s Bloodlines family member, Nany Gonzalez.

Nicole reveals she got engaged in Hawaii

This past week, the news started circulating on various fan accounts that former The Challenge cast member Nicole Ramos got engaged while she was vacationing in Hawaii with her boyfriend, Shawn Morrison.

She shared a series of gorgeous images, with one showing Shawn down on one knee on a cliff proposing to her in front of the crashing waves. Another image showed the happily engaged couple holding hands on the beach.

“Ended Hawaii with a YES,” Nicole wrote in a caption on her post from Shipwreck Beach, Kauai.

A Challenge fan account that supports cast members including Nany, Tula “Big T” Fazakerley” and Jemmye Carroll also shared an IG post.

In the first image, the couple is kissing with Nicole holding her hand out to display her beautiful engagement ring. A short video clip is also part of the IG post featuring Nicole carrying a large wedding ring floatie on the beach.

Her relationship has been mostly kept private until the recent engagement reveal. In fact, the engagement post that Nicole shared on Thursday, September 2, was her first on her IG page since this past May.

Not a whole lot is known about her fiance yet. Based on Shawn’s Instagram page, he is the general manager of Tangra Night Club located in the historic Latin quarter of Ybor City in Tampa, Florida.

Castmates react to Nicole’s engagement news

Years before her engagement, Nicole appeared on several seasons of MTV’s The Challenge and the Ex on the Beach 2 show.

Her debut came on The Challenge: Battle of the Bloodlines in late 2015. That season featured Challenge stars teamed up with a family member and Nicole was there with her cousin, Nany Gonzalez. They’d last until Episode 6 where KellyAnne Judd won in an elimination against Nany, sending the cousins home.

Nicole returned for Rivals III, XXX: Dirty 30, and 2018’s Vendettas, with the latter her most recent appearance on the show.

Many of her Challenge castmates from various seasons dropped by the recent Instagram post to offer congratulations on her engagement.
