Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 4 Part C

Host: We’re in the final episode of Round 4 of the Bachelor. Four contestants left- Anna, Stephanie, Steven and Tanya. Anna received the one-on-one last episode. Tonight we have a brunch party and then someone will get sent home!

03-16-15_6-52 PM

Tanner made everyone pancakes for brunch and they all  ate around the table together.

03-16-15_6-54 PM

Tanner entertained everyone by telling jokes. Stephanie joined in.

03-16-15_6-55 PM

And then there was some dancing. Tanya actually IS dancing in this picture. She’s just doing some sort of angry dance, maybe?

With a simple brunch and just a small group, there really wasn’t much excitement in this party.

03-16-15_6-58 PM

Tanner: The decisions are extremely difficult now. I feel a connection with each and every one of you. I have become such good friends with all of you.

03-16-15_7-00 PM


03-16-15_7-00 PM-2


03-16-15_7-01 PM


03-16-15_7-02 PM

Tanner: This is awful. Out of everyone, I have grown the closest to you. I feel like you are my best friend. And I really, really wish there was something there, but….

Anna: I know.

03-16-15_7-03 PM-2

Host: Later that evening….

03-16-15_7-09 PM-2




Tune in next time to see who died in the pool!


Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 4 Part B

Author Notes: Things are a little chaotic over here since I am moving to another state- selling a house, buying a house, and moving in general are a lot of work! I was away last week house-hunting, but I am back. I am SUPER into the Sims right now thanks to the upcoming release of the next expansion. My time is the only thing that is keeping me from playing and posting. I’m going to try posting more on the Facebook page so you know when to anticipate a new post. So, be sure to check out that page. If you already “like” the page and haven’t seen the posts recently, it’s likely because FB is hiding them due to the low fan count and lack of activity on the posts, so stop by and leave a comment!

Host: Welcome back to the Bachelor! On our last episode our final four contestants went on a group date. Who will get this week’s one on one? First we look at their day off…

03-03-15_8-50 PM 03-03-15_8-50 PM-2

Tanya: We should consider eating healthier breakfasts.

03-03-15_9-14 PM

03-03-15_9-16 PM

Host: Tanner likes hugs, and he was apparently in a “huggy” mood today.

03-03-15_9-19 PM 03-03-15_9-20 PM

03-03-15_9-21 PM

03-01-15_12-44 PM

Host: And now it’s time for the one-on-one

03-08-15_2-39 PM

Anna and Tanner went to a nightclub. They started off with some dancing.

03-08-15_2-41 PM

And followed it up with drinks at the bar.

03-08-15_2-42 PM

Tanner: I really like this song :::dances in seat:::

03-08-15_2-44 PM

Tanner (to the bartender): So how long have you been mixing for this place?

03-08-15_2-45 PM-2

Anna: I heard the Llamas did well last night…

03-08-15_2-45 PM-3

Tanner: So…what sort of movies do you like to watch?

03-08-15_2-45 PM-4

03-08-15_2-45 PM-5

Anna: Did you see the guy outside with the purple hat?

03-02-15_8-38 PM

Host: After hanging out at the bar for awhile, Anna and Tanner came home and cleaned the kitchen.

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 4 Part A

Host: Welcome to another round of the Bachelor! Last episode, we said goodbye to Madilyn. In this episode, Round 4 starts, only 4 contestants left!

03-02-15_8-38 PM

Anna and Tanner worked together to get the kitchen back in shape after the caterer destroyed it.

03-03-15_8-10 PM

Then, it was off to a group date at the park in Willow Creek.

03-03-15_8-11 PM

Tanya: Well, hello handsome. How are you today?


03-03-15_8-11 PM-3

Tanya: And then it made a face like this!

03-03-15_8-12 PM-2

Tanya: And what did you think of that book? Can you believe who the murder was? I didn’t see that coming!

03-03-15_8-12 PM-3

Tanner: I think we are a good match together. While we have similar interests, our personalities are different enough to ensure the conversation is always interesting.

03-03-15_8-12 PM-5

Tanner: You are going to have to learn to like the Lightning Llamas though.

Tanya: How about if I just don’t complain when you put the games on, and go read a book instead?

03-03-15_8-13 PM

Steven: Aha! I have an idea. What if the Dashing Dromedaries…

03-03-15_8-13 PM-2

Steven: I’ve been thinking about taking up photography.

03-03-15_8-14 PM-3

Steven: You have the nicest eyes. Did you know that?

03-03-15_8-14 PM-5

Tanner: Hmm…maybe you are right. If the Lightning Llamas go up against the Avalanche Alpacas.

03-03-15_8-15 PM-2

Anna: …and it weighed like fifty pounds…

03-03-15_8-15 PM-3

Anna: Grr…mean people make me so angry!

03-03-15_8-15 PM-4

Anna: Well….that didn’t go right…:::nervous laughter:::

03-03-15_8-15 PM-5

Anna: I don’t know. This is such an awkward situation. I really like you, but the flirting just isn’t working.

03-03-15_8-15 PM-6

Tanner: How you doin’?

03-03-15_8-16 PM-2

Tanner: Yeah. I feel like we have a lot in common, lots of the same values, both want families, but….

03-03-15_8-16 PM-3

Tanner: I don’t know. I feel like were more like best friends than in a romantic relationship.

03-03-15_8-17 PM

Stephanie: So, I definitely think I am starting to have some feelings for you.

03-03-15_8-17 PM-3

Stephanie: …with a hippodermic needle!!!….:::laughs:::

03-03-15_8-17 PM-4

Tanner: Yeah, and supposedly there will be a scientist lab being setup as well?

03-03-15_8-17 PM-5

Stephanie: Well finding someone I have a romantic connection with is, like, super important to me.

03-03-15_8-19 PM

Host: The contestants then enjoyed some burgers cooked by Tanner.


03-03-15_8-19 PM-3 03-03-15_8-20 PM

But Tanya left early because she was exhausted and needed to go to bed.

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 3 Part C

Host: Welcome to the conclusion of Round 3 on the Bachelor!

03-01-15_12-44 PM

It’s the morning of the cocktail party and garden ceremony. Stephanie managed to sneak in some extra time during breakfastThe morning was relatively quiet with people catching up on sleep, showering, eating and just ensuring they were well-played for the afternoon’s festivities.

03-01-15_1-13 PM-2

Today’s party was a general house party catered food and beverages, dancing, socializing, etc…

03-01-15_1-13 PM-3

03-01-15_1-13 PM-5

There are no particularly talented dancers in the group.

03-01-15_1-13 PM-6

03-01-15_1-14 PM

The bartender added some excitement to the event.

03-01-15_1-14 PM-2

03-01-15_1-14 PM-3

03-01-15_1-16 PM

Madilyn couldn’t decide which drink she wanted…so she opted for both.

03-01-15_1-18 PM

Steven: How do you think the Llamas are going to do against the Alpacas this week? I have a feeling they’ll excel on the ice, but fail on the field. 

03-01-15_5-06 PM

Tanya: The caterer made a disaster in the kitchen. Why are they required to clean up after themselves? But, you know, this is the best grilled cheese I’ve ever eaten.

03-01-15_5-22 PM

03-01-15_5-22 PM-2

03-01-15_5-23 PM

Tanner: I’ve had another great week here. And I’d really like to thank each of you for being here. Decisions are getting really difficult now, and it’ll just be getting harder from here on out.

03-01-15_5-24 PM

If he accepts, my first choice to stay is Steven.

03-01-15_5-24 PM-2

Followed by Anna.

03-01-15_5-25 PM


03-01-15_5-25 PM-3

And finally, Stephanie.

03-01-15_5-26 PM

Host: I’m sorry, Stephanie. Take a moment and say your goodbyes.

03-01-15_5-27 PM-2

Tanner: You are a beautiful and fascinating woman, Madilyn, but I feel like a lot of the other relationships have progressed a lot further. 

Madilyn:  :::sniffles::: ::::nods:::

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 3 Part B

Mod Note: Sorry for the delay in posting recently. My job schedule has prevented me from dedicating as much time as I’d like to the Sims. However, I am still fully invested in completing this challenge. It’s just taking me a lot longer to complete this round than the first two.

Host: Welcome back to Round 3 of The Bachelor Series 4! Last episode we had the first group date of Round 3. Who will Tanner select for the one-on-one this week?

02-20-15_12-44 PM

The day after the group date was another relaxing day where the contestants could catch up on their needs- sleeping, showering, reading, etc… Nothing interesting or unusual happened, it was a pretty quiet day. Tanner took up painting. We decided to display his art in the hallway with the easel and the guitar. The hallway is going to be referred to in the future as the “creative hallway”.

02-25-15_9-20 PM

Tanner selected Anna for his one-on-one. Anna and Tanner have the strongest friendship in the house, so Tanner is hoping to see some fireworks on this date.

02-25-15_9-21 PM

The date was at the local museum where they wandered around, chatted with several other visitors, and took selfies with the art.

02-25-15_9-22 PM

Anna: What?!? Woohoo in a rocket ship? :::laughs::: You have some weird life goals, Tanner.

Tanner: Hey, I think it is a perfectly realistic desire. :::laughs::: Where is your sense of adventure?

02-25-15_9-22 PM-2

Anna: I’m really glad you chose me for the one-on-one today. I’m so excited to be here with you. I feel like we get along really well, and I want to see where this goes.

02-25-15_9-22 PM-3

Tanner: She said the trick was to add some rum extract.

02-25-15_9-23 PM

Anna: And then he slipped on some banana peels!

02-25-15_9-25 PM

02-25-15_9-26 PM

Host: At some point in the afternoon, they got separated and distracted talking to other people visiting the museum.

02-25-15_9-26 PM-2

Hey look! It’s one of the stars of Amanda & Martha! We also saw Rebecca Brown today.

02-25-15_9-29 PM

Anna and Tanner eventually found each other again and stayed outside until 10:30pm chatting. They laughed and shared and became even better friends. Sadly, other than a bit of friendly flirting, no sparks flew on this date.

Will the lack of a romantic connection between Tanner and Anna cause Anna to get sent home this round? Or will Tanner keep his new, but close friend in the running? Find out next time.

Bachelor Challenge 4.1: Round 3 Part A

Host: We’ve seen both Sofie and Karina say goodbye to the Bachelor. Who will go this round?

02-20-15_10-12 AM

Host: Instead of having breakfast with Tanya on the patio, Tanner ate in the living while watching TV with Steve. Tanner had a hot dog while Steve had toast and eggs.

02-20-15_10-15 AM

Host: This round’s group date was a campfire in the backyard.

02-20-15_10-18 AM-2

Host: While some contestants were smooth with the romantic gestures.

02-20-15_10-20 AM

Host: Other contestants were a little more awkward.

02-20-15_10-20 AM-2

Drama broke out when the campfire flames leaped onto a chair and lamp. No one was hurt. Thank goodness Tanya had enough sense to put the fire out.

02-20-15_10-22 AM

Tanner: Wow. I’m so impressed with how you handled that situation. You’re great to have around in an emergency.

02-20-15_10-23 AM

Steven: :::blows kiss at Tanner:::

02-20-15_10-25 AM

Tanner: So, I saw on TV this morning there is this new vacuum that is excellent for sucking up llama hair.

02-20-15_10-26 AM-2

Host: Anna’s attempts to embrace Tanner romantically were not well received- though he did give her a hug right after.

02-20-15_10-27 AM

Host: Stephanie and Tanya stayed up late chatting after everyone had gone to bed.

Tanya: We tend to meet at this table quite a bit.

02-19-15_8-32 PM

Tanner: I know! I enjoy our nice quiet eating time. It’s peaceful on the porch this early in the morning.

02-19-15_8-32 PM-2

Tanner: Maybe it’s fate. Afterall, we both chose to have franks and beans for breakfast.

02-19-15_8-42 PM

Anna: Karina? What exactly are you supposed to be? It’s a costume party!

Karina: Sweetie, there is never a good reason to dress like a hot dog.

02-19-15_8-45 PM

Tanner: Drinking with this helmet on his hard. :::thunk::: Owww!

02-19-15_8-45 PM-2

02-19-15_8-48 PM

Madilyn: You there. One Buffalo Wing Tea, please.

02-19-15_8-49 PM

Tanner: Oh, guess what, I finally beat that level on the game. Whew. It was hard work.

02-19-15_8-49 PM-2

02-19-15_8-51 PM

Host: Tanner and Anna both spent hours dancing and talking with everyone else. Tanner chatted with Anna, and the folks sitting at the nearest table, but he was dancing the whole time. Such stamina!

02-19-15_10-28 PM

Host: It’s time.

02-19-15_10-28 PM-2
