The couple is introduced early in the third season.[3] The producers of the show were often asked what the rest of the plane-crash survivors were doing because the show only focuses on approximately fifteen of the survivors, and the characters of Nikki and Paulo were created in response.[4] Reaction to the characters was generally negative,[5] with show runner Damon Lindelof acknowledging the couple are "universally despised" by fans.[6] As a result of this, the couple was killed off later in the same season when they are accidentally buried alive.
