Week Four



Welcome back to Big Brother. Last week, Jacob won his second Head of the Household challenge and Tommy went home after his third nomination. This week, the contestants will be competing by playing the first of the musical instrumentsÖ



GUITAR! Note the dresser in the background. Since I donít want everyone standing around watching each other play, Iíve assigned each Sim a bedroom and locked the instruments inside. Letís hope it helps.



Oh, never mind.



Koala picks the skill up straight away. Sheís determined to avoid nomination this week.



Koala is quickly followed by SusanÖ



ÖWho is followed by LucaÖ



ÖWho is followed by Simon. The only Sim who hasnít had a shot yet is Jacob.



Thatís because Jacob still has access to the fancy suite and all of the glories within. He hasnít been away from his TV and computer all week.



Jacob, being a Couch Potato, isnít bothered by his lack of progress. Iíve never seen him  cross at anything. Itís actually rather cute Ė his emotions range from adorably bewildered to totally blissed out with very little in between.

Sadly for Jacob, his time in the suite has come to an end. The Head of the Household for this week isÖ



Luca! He nominates Simon and Jacob. Thatís bound to even the genders up, at least.



Luca quickly retreats to the HoH suite and doesnít come out for a while.



Simon doesnít seem too bothered by his nomination. Susan still puts up with him and thatís all he cares about.



Susan, are you OK? I hope constant harassment from the resident Evil Genius isnít getting to her.



Jacob doesnít take the nomination to heart, bless him. He and Luca are actually pretty close, but Luca would never nominate one of his girls.



Yes, girls. To my surprise, Luca was best friends with Susan as well as Koala. They spend a lot of their time chatting with each other and AAARGH!



Tommy Knack! WHY ARE YOU STALKING THE BIG BROTHER HOUSEHOLD? You were voted out fair and square!

ÖFelonies aside, the rest of the week proceeds without a hitch. Elimination day arrives all too soon.



And with three votes out of five, the Sim going home this week isÖ



JACOB!



Iíll miss ya, cutie. Now you can eat your TV falafel in peace. Tune in next week to Big Brother, Los Aniegos!

Ah, too bad, Jacob is so cute. Maybe he'll start stalking...probably not.

I'm awake for a fresh new chapter!

A part of me thought that Jacob would make it further, but he doesn't strike me as someone who's gonna be like Tommy the sore loser when he's out in the world. :P

Jacob was really easy-going and he'd already won two challenges, so I'm not surprised you thought that. Oh well. :P

Aw, Jacob was my favorite. I'm rooting for Susan she's sorta staying off of the radar.

Good idea, Susan's pretty tough :) . I'll mention this in a later chapter, but on a practice run for this challenge Susan won Head of the Household three times in a row.

Goodbye, Jacob.  You'll be missed.

Tommy coming back to stalk the house was really creepy - unless it was just that they're the nearest things he has to friends, of course.  He doesn't seem all that likely to be a big success in the outside world  :-\.  Speaking of which, I really like the look of Los Aniegos.  I've recently started playing with non-EA worlds but hadn't come across that one.

To be honest I'm pretty sure he did just drop in to be friendly. He just happens to look so aggressive all the time. :P

I love Los Aniegos! It's a bit of a strain on my laptop (as are all large cities) but the attention to detail is unbelievable. I play the Late Night version but I think it's been updated as far as Island Paradise now if you Google. I'm also fond of Setra by Pyronium3, Jericho by Simsample, and basically anything by RFlong7/RFlong13 (especially the first version of Haunted Valley, it's so cosy and atmospheric). :)

I'm kinda getting quite attached to Simon, he's quite endearing in his *special* way.

Lol, I'm glad you like him. He tries! :P

Week Five



Welcome back to Big Brother! Last week, Luca replaced Jacob as HoH and promptly bumped him out of the house. Weíre now down to four contestants, all with established friendships and alliances.



And it looks like Week Five is the week of couples! Itís Simon and Susan vs. Luca and Koala, and one of those pairs will be split at the end of the week. It all comes down to which side wins this weekís skill point challenge. And the skill of the week isÖ



DRUMMING! Iíve deleted the dressers to make space for them. Who needs clothes in this house anyway?



Simon is the first to earn a Drumming point, and looks like heís having a grand old time. He earns four points on the very first night. Four!



When morning breaks, he heads to the hot tub to rest his aching arms and enjoy the view.



With Simon in the lead and Luca in the HoH suite, Koala has no choice but to try the drums herself.



But Simon has a passion. Every night he heads back to his room to practice the drums. Yep, all three nights of the skill challenge. Perhaps heís finally found an outlet for his evil urges?



And surprise surprise, guess who makes Head of the Household this week? Yes, Simon earns six and a half drumming points and nominates Luca and Koala for elimination.



He misses his drumkit and still pops wishes to play it, but at least Simon has virtual chess to keep him happy. Heís up to seven Logic points.



Now that theyíre both up for elimination, Koala and Luca canít bear to be apart.



See what I mean? They do this autonomously. Itís the closest they can get to spontaneous Woohoo (which they both have wishes for, by the way).



For the first time, Luca seems troubled by his prospects. He was the only household member who didnít earn a single drumming point, and he knows this may have cost him his place in the challenge.



Even Koala looks somewhat disheartened this week. No matter what happens, she and Luca will be separated at elimination. One of them has to go home.



But Susan? Not a care in the world. She spends every waking moment in the hot tub.



In fact, she also seems more comfortable sharing with Simon than before. Here they are comparing tans at night.



Oh look, Jacobís come to visit! Hi, Jacob! You canít come in, sorry.



No Jacob, you canít talk to the contestants. Please donít lurk in the shadowy space directly under the hot tub. They tell enough ghost stories as it is.



The morning of the elimination, Koala accidentally breaks the hot tub. Itís replaced immediately, but she canít help but worry about the omen of whatís to come.



Susan, meanwhile, takes a very long nap and almost misses the ceremony.



Simon, being considerate, wakes her up for it. So thoughtful!



And finally, the contestants meet outside for the penultimate elimination.



Two votes are cast for each nominee, so Simon acts as tiebreaker. And the Sim voted out of the Big Brother mansion this week isÖ



LUCA! He isnít that bothered about leaving. He had a good run and heís happy to have learned some skills. Thereís just one thing left for him to doÖ





Tune in next week for the final elimination on Big Brother, Los Aniegos!

I know right? At least they have each other now. Only three left in the house.

Week Six



Welcome back everyone to Big Brother, Los Aniegos! Last week, Simon won Head of the Household and kicked Luca out of the house. Koalaís not very happy about that outcome.


 
Oh dear. Lifeís just not going well for Koala right now. Perhaps she can bury herself in the final skill challenge of the showÖ



PIANO! A classy instrument for a classy bunch of Sims. *snicker*



Koala (Lord itís hard to fit those pompoms in a screenshot sometimes) immediately gets to work. She knows how close Susan and Simon are, so winning Head of Household is her only chance to reach the finale.



Look, Iíd like to provide tension but these are my only two pics from the challenge. Koala wins by default with four points! Yay, finally a female Head of the Household! I donít know what took them so long. In my practice run Susan won HoH three weeks in a row. But anyway, Koala is immune from elimination and Simon and Susan have been nominated by default.



Koala also becomes the only contestant to earn some Athletic points. Itís probably a good idea.



Meanwhile, Susan and Simon have adopted a different strategy Ė earning Koalaís friendship.



Simon, loner that he is, decides the best route is to win her heart indirectly by cleaning things.



Heavens knows she needs to be cleaned up after.



Oh look, the cleaning worked! Koala seems grateful at least, and thatís what matters.



Simon immediately follows it up by talking about exercise and TV, two topics Koala loves. Simon, you sly dog, when did you learn to suck up to people?



Susan, sensing her place in the finals slipping away, is on the scene so fast she clips Koalaís hand through her leg. She manages to distract Simon long enough for Koala to eat some rotten waffles and vomit everywhere.



I like this pic because it looks like the panda is puking.



But anyway, donít get me wrong Ė Simon and Susan are quite happy together now, and itíll be a shame to split them up. If anything, they might be getting too comfortableÖ



You see this? This is the view from an extremely posh apartment in the city. Imagine, for a moment, being rich and snobby and dismissive of the ill-behaved youth. And yet every time you glance to the west, youíre confronted by a view of THIS:



Canít you hear the screams of frustration faintly in the distance? Also, note Simon sneaking out of the hot tub to steal Susanís clothes.



Speaking of which, Susan has a very unique bug Ė whenever her clothes are stolen, smeary eyeliner appears on her face. She spends entire days wandering the house like this. So thanks to Simon, we have a smokey-eyed domestic toga goddess cooking Very Nice dishes for the humble residents of the mansion.



Good heavens! Simon, youíre starting to get creepy again.



Finally, the last elimination is upon us.  Koala strips off to jump in the hot tub, daring the others to join her for some last minute relationship points. There arenít any takers, but she has a lovely day out there by herself.



And that evening, itís up to Koala alone to decide who heads home this week. Will it be the quietly competitive Susan, or sinister genius Simon?

Itís close. Itís very close. But the Sim going home tonight by just a sliver of relationship value isÖ



SUSAN! (Sorry, everyone who liked her  :-\ )



Susan was easy-going and a very hard worker, which is probably what got her into the final three, but her aversion to socializing finally caught up with her. She puts on a brave face and wishes her friend good luck with the final challenge.



But as tough as she is, she canít help but break down a little as she calls a taxi.



And thatís all for Big Brother this week. Join us next time to watch Simon and Koala go head-to-head in a surprising final challenge! Donít miss the updates on past contestants or the exciting conclusion to the show here in Los Aniegos!

I'm not THAT surprised that Susan lost (not that I would be surprised if Simon did either; they're both quiet and it seems that victory is gained by being loud in the charming way), but she was a likable sim.

It is a little tough to believe that the season's almost over. :(

Yeah, it's an interesting mix of skill, friendship levels, and luck. Especially in the later rounds when a single Sim can decide who goes home.

It is a little tough to believe that the season's almost over. :(

I know! It's only been a week in real time! At least I've got my game running, so I might be able to update the Joneses in the next few weeks ;) . Plus I've really got the hang of the Big Brother challenge in case I want to do it again. I'm tempted to play again with a house full of Daisys.

Very entertaining, Ausette! I played Los Aniegos (because I lived in LA at one time) but it was very laggy for me.
