Nikki Bella is diving into the dating scene.

In a sneak peek at Sunday’s episode of Total Bellas, Brie decides to play matchmaker for her twin sister. (Nikki, 35, ended her engagement to pro wrestler John Cena last summer.)

“When you’re in the spotlight, sometimes it’s nice to kind of have people help you go on dates,” Brie says. And even though Nikki refuses to “go on Tinder of Bumble,” Brie has a whole roster of possible contenders for her sister, starting with The Bachelorette‘s Peter Kraus.

“We’re going to have breakfast,” Nikki reveals.

Then Brie suggests actor Taye Diggs.

“Taye Diggs would definitely be fun,” Brie insists. “Like, she would laugh the whole time.”

“Taye Diggs is super sexy,” Nikki admits.

“I think you should go out with both of them!” mom Kathy says. “The power is in numbers.”

And while none of the guys live in San Diego, Brie reveals that they’re all willing to fly there for a date.

“Oh my gosh, really? For me?” Nikki asks. “It’s going to be so uncomfortable. Can’t we just do a FaceTime date?”

Though the dates have yet to play out on this season of Total Bellas, Nikki dished about going out with Kraus, 33, during an appearance on Busy Tonight Tuesday.

“That was like, my first date in over six or seven years,” she said. “It was so awkward and I totally got drunk.”

Nikki said the E! cameramen didn’t make it any easier.

“I think that’s what embarrassed me a lot — here I am, having this first date and all of a sudden I look to my left and it’s two camera crews,” she said. “I’m like, ‘This is so weird.’ I didn’t even really want to flirt because it just was so awkward.”

“But you flirted, because I watched the footage back,” Brie interjected. “But it was really bad. Like, my sister needs help on dating — she’s not a good dater!”

“Sorry it was the first time in seven years! You would be terrible,” Nikki said. “When we watched it back, I got so bright red. I couldn’t watch it. I was so embarrassed of myself.”

Total Bellas airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!
