Bachelor 4.3: Episode 12- Let’s Go Swimming

Bachelor4.3text

If you need a refresher, or if this is your first visit, head back to episode 1..

Only four participants remain. Will Dalton fall in love with one of them?

Erica makes Dalton feel at ease. He can easily see her in his friend circle….gardening, hiking, or hanging out by the campfire. But is there the potential for romance?

With Karissa, Dalton felt an immediate spark. Karissa received both the first impression save in round one, and the first kiss. But are they connecting on a deeper level?

Sabrina seems to have the full package. Dalton finds her attractive and they get along. But do they have enough common interests?

And then there is Penelope. After her many failed romantic attempts, why is she still around? Dalton appreciates her effort and values someone who is willing to work hard at a relationship.

Which of them is right for Dalton? Are any of them?

03-14-16_11-37-17 AM

In this episode, Round 4 starts off with a trip to the bluffs for a day of swimming.

03-14-16_11-43-10 AM

Erica was quick to turn the conversation flirty.

03-14-16_11-44-46 AM

And was the first to have some alone time with Dalton.

03-14-16_11-45-58 AM

Penelope joined the conversation as they discussed how they get ready for a date.

03-14-16_11-46-20 AM

And what sort of restaurants they like to eat at when going out.

03-14-16_11-46-34 AM

Obviously, Dalton would prefer to go somewhere that has grilled cheese available, in case of rain.

03-14-16_11-47-15 AM

Penelope’s restaurant priorities involve desserts.

03-14-16_11-49-12 AM

Karissa was feeling pretty bummed for much of the day.

03-14-16_11-49-18 AM

Karissa: It’s hard. I hate having to share you with a bunch of other people. I’m not really interested in talking to them.

03-14-16_11-50-08 AM

Sabrina: Hey, want to hear a joke about dinosaurs? One dinosaur asks another dinosaur ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’

03-14-16_11-51-03 AM

Sabrina got snuggled up to Dalton, while a depressed Karissa took a nap on the rocks.

03-14-16_11-51-08 AM

Karissa was a bit upset she had to share Dalton on this date, and she wasn’t happy with the other girls.

03-14-16_11-52-35 AM

Penelope also found some alone time with Dalton.

03-14-16_11-53-51 AM

Dalton joined Karissa on the bench to try to cheer her up. It didn’t seem to help much.

03-14-16_2-17-59 PM

That evening, Erica went out to water the flowers.

03-14-16_2-18-18 PM

While Penelope played the piano.

03-14-16_2-19-27 PM

Sabrina did a bit of cooking.

03-14-16_2-19-39 PM

And Karissa ate some more food.

Bachelor 4.3: Episode 7- Penelope Steps It Up

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome to the next episode of the Bachelor! Last time, Raven was our second romantic interest to leave the show. Our first was Ansuya.

Before the next group activity, someone decides to take matters into their own hands…

02-22-16_3-31-28 PM

Penelope crept into Dalton’s room to get some extra one-on-one time. Dalton appreciated the effort, so he invited her to sit on his sofa.

02-22-16_3-31-59 PM

She didn’t waste anytime moving closer to the Dalton. He didn’t seem to mind this time.

02-22-16_3-32-38 PM

Since he was responding so well to her flirtations, Penelope tried to take things a little bit further…

02-22-16_3-32-30 PM

We’ve all seen that move before.

02-22-16_3-33-34 PM

Nope…Dalton likes to take things slow and warm up to the romance.

02-22-16_3-33-40 PM

Despite the awkwardness, they continued with their conversation for a little bit longer.

02-22-16_3-33-52 PM

Penelope recovered from the situation by keeping the conversation non-romantic.

02-22-16_3-33-46 PM

They discussed cars and cupcakes, and eating cupcakes while in cars.

Is Dalton just playing hard to get? Does Penelope like a challenge? Or is there just no chemistry? Perhaps we’ll find out in the next episode!

Bachelor 4.3 Contestant #1

We are still accepting submissions for Bachelor 4.3. This Bachelor strongly prefers female contestants, so female submissions are highly desirable!

To submit a contestant, go here. The submission form is roughly the same as last time with a few tweaks for clarity and I rehashed the Bachelor-contest specific section.

It’s time to meet our first contestant:

Penelope is stepping out of her comfort zone by joining the Bachelor. She hopes trying something new and different will help her personal growth.

12-01-15_12-07-16 PM

What Penelope desires most in life is to see her children succeed, but is struggling to balance this desire with her fear of becoming too much like her strict, over-bearing parents. She is hoping to broaden her horizons with this experience and perhaps meet the perfect partner to help raise her future family.

12-01-15_12-07-36 PM

Penelope is a creative soul with a passion for music. When not worrying about how to be the perfect parent, she plays the piano and violin.

Penelope was submitted by Rinellie

Bachelor 4.2: Round 2

We have 10 participants who are interested in forming a relationship with Cannon, but he can only choose one of them.

In Round One, we saw our first five contestants. Now it is time for the second half to take the stage.

In Round Two, our Bachelor will be invited over to the house where the second set of contestants is staying. He will have the opportunity to meet and interact with all the contestants. In the second part of Round Two, the contestants will be invited over to the Bachelor mansion where the Bachelor will be hosting a costume party. The following day, the Bachelor will invite the contestants over to the mansion again. If he is very interested in a participant, he will ask he or she to move into the mansion. If he isn’t sure, he’ll ask him or her to stay for another round. The one he is least interested in will be asked to leave!

12-19-15_10-17-07 PM

Adelaide: “Hi, I’m Adel. Nice to meet you. Please make yourself comfortable. The rest of the group is dying to meet you, but I’m going to sneak a few moments here for myself. :::winks::: Hope you don’t mind.”

12-19-15_10-21-35 PM

Karissa: “….Oh, absolutely, he has the right voice, a great sound, perfect style…”

Cat: “Perfect style? I’m going to assume we are talking about me, then. How am I looking today?”

12-19-15_10-20-51 PM

Kieran: “Sshh…let’s keep it down, Adel has fallen asleep. Has anyone seen a pool around here?”

12-19-15_10-22-39 PM

Adel: “Well, you know, I needed my beauty rest.”

Cat: “I look purrfect even when I’ve only had a wink of sleep. Some of us are just naturals that way,” :::looks at Adel sincerely::: “Sorry, dear.”

12-19-15_10-23-24 PM

Adel: “I love Chateau de Landgraab”

Cannon: “What’s it about?”

Cat: “This gorgeous son of an aristocratic family runs off with a fetching maid, but he gets into an accident along the way…”

Kieran: “Spoilers!”

12-19-15_10-23-12 PM

Cannon: “Well, that wasn’t that bad actually.”

Kieran: “Seriously, I forgot to sit down.”

Cannon: “Where’d Alan run off too? Anyway, I’m going to leave you all to watch this next show on your own. I have some preparation to do for tomorrow. Nice to meet all of you!”

12-20-15_12-26-17 AM

Cannon: “So…”

Kieran: “This grilled fruit is excellent.”

12-20-15_12-28-59 AM

Cannon: “Adel, you look stunning even as a pizza delivery person.”

Adelaide: “Aww…thank you.”

12-20-15_12-29-11 AM

Cat: “While I know I look fabulous, I feel awful that two of us are in the same costume. I never dreamed anyone else would show up dressed as a clown? I feel bad for Cannon, having to be compared to me!”

The following day was time for the elimination.

Cannon: “I’m feeling less confident about my decisions today. I don’t think the relationships with the second group progressed as far with me as the first group. I felt like they were more into hanging out with each other….which is great, I mean, making friends is important…and I want someone who can be social, but it’s making today’s decision more challenging.

12-20-15_4-00-06 PM

Cannon: “Adel, I think their is a definite chemistry between us, and I’d like to see where that leads. Will you stay for another round?”

Adel: “Of course.”

12-20-15_4-01-38 PM

Cannon: “Karissa…I think we share a lot of the same values, and I’d like for us to get to know each other better. Will you stay for another round?”

Karissa: “Yes, definitely. Thank you.”

Cannon: “Keiran, will you stay another round?”

Keiran: “Sure, dude.”

12-20-15_4-04-22 PM

Cannon: “Has anyone seen Cat?”

Penelope: “Yes, Cannon, he told Keiran & I to tell you that he was done. He said he just didn’t think his fabulous nature was suited with your rustic down to earth one. Also, the producers told him it was frowned upon for him to hit on them, and the other contestants. And he said he wanted company *tonight* so their strict rules weren’t working for him right now. ”

Cannon: “Penelope, aren’t you supposed to be upstairs?”

Penelope: “I’m just looking out for you. And I got bored.”

12-20-15_4-03-19 PM

Cannon: “So, Alan…would you like to stay for another round?”

12-20-15_4-03-15 PM

Alan: “I guess. It sort of looks like I was actually in last place here, and Cat’s voluntarily removal from the competition is the only reason I’m staying. I don’t know how I feel about that. It isn’t very romantic.”

Cannon: “Well, frankly, yes. I mean, I’m not opposed to the idea of you staying, but it seemed like you were the least interested. Every time I go to speak with you, you aren’t there. I assumed you didn’t want to be here.”

Alan: “Oh, no, it’s nothing like that. I really am interested. I promised. I just find this situation awkward, and I’m having a hard time making friends in the house. I love meeting new people and making friends, I always thought it was one of my strengths, but I just don’t fit with this group for some reason, and it’s really lonely in the house.”

Cannon: “I get that. This is a really awkward situation. Actually, I think you’d probably really like some of the contestants in the other house. I think things will improve as time goes on, and the group gets smaller. I’d love for you to hang in for another round to see where things go, okay?”

Alan: “Yes, I can do that. I’m sure your right.”

 

And with that, we say goodbye to our well-dressed friend Cat. I’m saddened we won’t be able to see more of his fantastical outfits! I’m certain we’ll meet him again in the next season!

Bachelor 4.2: Round 1

Welcome to Season 2 of the Bachelor with the Sims 4! We appreciate you stopping by!

This season we are trying to find a match for Cannon…

11-19-15_9-49-43 AM

We have 10 participants who are interested in forming a relationship with Cannon, but he can only choose one of them.

In Round One, we will only see our first 5 contestants (click on the link to be taken to their introductory page): Simone,  Tessa, Sabrina, Penelope, and Ansuya. Contestants six through ten, will participate in round 2.

In Round One, our Bachelor will be invited over to the house where the first set of contestants is staying. He will have the opportunity to meet and interact with all the contestants. In the second part of Round One, the contestants will be invited over to the Bachelor mansion where the Bachelor will be hosting a costume party. The following day, the Bachelor will invite the contestants over to the mansion again. If he is very interested in a girl, he will ask her to move into the mansion. If he isn’t sure, he’ll ask them to stay for another round. The one he is least interested in will be asked to leave!

12-17-15_9-57-53 AM

Cannon: Hi everyone. I’d like to thank all of you for being here. I know this process is sort of risky, putting yourself out there…so, I just wanted you to know that I appreciate it.

12-17-15_10-02-56 AM

Tessa: I love camping! The great outdoors is a great opportunity to have some fun….making scare bear noises outside people’s tents, stealing all the tp from the bathrooms, swapping people’s suntan lotion for skin cream…loads to do!

Cannon: Yeah…

12-18-15_9-20-34 AM

Simone: Cannon, in your bio you stated that you have a dream of owning a large estate with expansive grounds. I wanted you to know that I have very similar aims. I think our tastes are likely quite compatible. Of course, we could do something about your fashion sense! :::winks::: Just kidding, I think you look adorable, but you’d probably be much more handsome in a good suit.

12-18-15_9-21-47 AM

Cannon: :::dancing by himself to the music on the radio:::

12-17-15_10-10-21 AM

Tessa: Want to head upstairs? I’ll show you my moodlet, if you show me yours..:::wink:::

Cannon:: ……………No. Thanks….

12-17-15_10-11-37 AM

Cannon: :::smiles flirtatiously at Simone from across the room::::

12-18-15_9-33-17 AM

After a successful meet & greet with the contestants, Cannon heads back to the Bachelor mansion to relax and prepare for the costume party the following day.

12-18-15_11-16-13 AM

Cannon readies himself for his costume party by making some Buffalo Wing Tea and getting into his costume- as a pizza delivery guy!

12-18-15_11-18-11 AM

Three hot dogs walk into a Bachelor mansion….

12-18-15_11-28-39 AM

Cannon: See, we can agree on some fashion!

12-18-15_11-32-19 AM

Cannon: Yeah, I just got back from a trip to Granite Falls, actually. I love going hiking out there. The deep woods is beautiful.

12-18-15_11-29-56 AM

Sabrina: Who would have thought a cake shaped like a burger would taste so good?

12-18-15_11-30-05 AM

Nom….nom…nom…

12-18-15_11-19-02 AM

Tessa: Pfft…did you see those hot dog costumes? Not very flattering if you ask me!

simsbachelorpenelopedanceparty

After the costume party, Cannon was supposed to relax and recover, and make some important decisions about tomorrow’s elimination. However, someone broke the rules…

Penelope: I was disappointed that we didn’t get more time together today and I really want to get to know you….There’s a rumor going around that a crazy party is happening at the Chalet right now. Care to Join me?

Cannon: Sure!

12-18-15_2-02-31 PM 12-18-15_2-02-28 PM  12-18-15_1-56-47 PM 12-18-15_1-56-45 PM

Penelope and Cannon spent the next several hours dancing (there was very little talking). The other contestants will not be happy when they find out about this!

The following day, it was time for our first elimination. The Bachelor invited all the contestants back to his mansion, and spoke to them one-by-one.

12-18-15_3-20-18 PM

Cannon: Penelope, I had an amazing time last night and I’m certain that I’d like to see where this relationship could go. I’d like to ask you to move into the Bachelor Mansion. Do you accept?

Penelope: Absolutely. I’m so glad you feel that way. Last night was totally out of character for me, I went with my impulse, and it was totally amazing.

12-18-15_3-25-23 PM

Cannon: Simone, I’m interested in learning more about you. Would you like to stay until the next round?

Simone: Yes, I think I will.

12-18-15_3-30-34 PM

Cannon: Sabrina, I feel like we’ve had a few moments where we have connected. I find you very attractive, and you seem genuine. Will you please stay another round?

Sabrina: :::nodding::: I would love to. I have felt those moments as well.

12-18-15_3-29-04 PM

Tessa: Oh come on, Ansuya? Really? You are going to her next? And that means I’m out? The fun has even started yet.  She’s hardly said a peep the entire time. I’ve been actively showing interest more than anyone else!

12-18-15_3-32-24 PM

Cannon: Tessa, you must have…

Tessa: I’m sorry, but I’m not ready to leave just yet. I haven’t had time to mess with anyone yet, or make any friends, or seduced you on national television…

12-18-15_3-32-32 PM

Cannon: Tessa, please hear me out. Look, you seem like a fun person, and I’d love to be friends, but I’m not feeling the connection, are you?

Tessa: Nah.

Cannon: Well, I’ve only got one shot at this and I’m taking this process super seriously. I just don’t think you and I are going to work. But look…I’m certain this drama will be one of the highights of this episode, so at least you made a splash tonight! I’m certain there is someone out there that will love your sense of humor, and appreciate your kind of fun. You could go on the next Bachelor and make another splash there.

Tessa: Yeah, it’s true. It’s fine. I’m not that into you anyway…but rejection isn’t very fun. See you around.

And with that, Tessa is our first contestant to leave the Bachelor!

Do you think Cannon made the right call? Leave a comment below!
