What I do like about Nick is that he seems to care intensely about his team members succeeding, not because it reflects on him if they don't, but because he genuinely wants them to succeed for themselves. You could really see that with Natalya tonight, which may be why he was so hurt that Anya and Mondo started in on her when the judges liked her dress better than they liked the work of their team members. He was so proud of her and pleased that he helped her get there, but he didn't rub in in their faces--and then they had to go rain on his (and her) parade. Honestly, I wonder if part of it is that Nick got a number of his team members by default. When the mentees were picking their mentors, they typically went for Mondo and Anya, which should have given them the stronger teams, and yet, Nick and his team of supposed misfits have hung right in there with them. It's kind of like when he had his model swiped on his season and got the novel who was larger (she was all of a four or something like that) instead. He was disappointed, because he and his previous model had gotten close, but he put that aside and was so nice to his new model that she went out there and modeled like she never had before, because she wanted him to do well.
