Summer Bachelor: Elimination 1

Intro | Base Rules | Elimination 2

SimNaNo Update #2

Hello and welcome to the official first entry in this bachelor challenge. In the intro we met all the contestants and we are ready to see how it goes. This is now officially our second post for SimNaNo, our first is over on our Achievement Insanity Project, and if you are interested in watching me do a bunch of different challenges all in one save you can find that at this link.

Now a confession. I played a ton of this challenge, past the second elimination, and it was going horribly. The house wasn’t really working for me, the fact everyone is werewolves was causing all kinds of issues due to the fury (which was partly fun) and it was just causing issues. Also, I wasn’t liking the rules and kept getting mixed up about where I was within the challenge and doing things at the wrong time. So I stopped, pulled everyone out, wiped their relationships, but went ahead and left their werewolf levels, and skills. Then loaded everyone back into a new fresh world with a new house and new rules. I have updated the link above to my quick little write-up. It’s not really complete, it’s just a barebones skeleton of how I’m going to do things. So you WILL see some of the contestants as werewolves right away since they were already getting ready to change, and now, let’s get into it.

Day 1: Meet and Greet

So here is our new house for the bachelor and his potential romantic interests. I’m excited to get a chance to try this with what I feel will be a better house and a better set of rules for TS4. One of the big ones is we will be doing eliminations every 4 days, and that is making a BIG difference I think.

So day one starts off with Nelson getting to know the other contestants. We start with a couple of TVs, but those will go away before too long. No one really talks while watching TV.

However, for the first day, the TV is a great bonding spot and where everyone comes to enjoy their food. Nelson also has a habit of hugging this little black bag. I’m not 100% sure what that is, but I’m assuming it’s part of his Recycle Discipline trait.

After that first day, the contestants head up to this room where each one has an assigned bed. As the bachelor, Nelon has his own room that also has a bathroom. There isn’t a whole lot that happened this day, but Nelson at least met and interacted with each of the contestants.

Day 2: Group Outing

Nelson spends part of the next morning talking with Alexander while he was working out. Nelson was starting to get a lot of fury built up. He has managed to get Easily Excitable, Feels Outcasted, and Wrack with Guilt as his temperments.

After his chat with Alexander, Nelson heads downstairs and chats for a while with Isabella. A while later Alexander comes to chat with Nelson some more. This is already starting off MUCH better than last time where almost everyone just did their own things and rarely talked, at least with Nelson.

Now, as you might have seen if you looked over my current rules, the first day after any elimination will be a free day, and day 2 will be a full group outing. Since this is day two, we take everyone out to a bowling alley.

The bowling alley sees the group try and do some bowling (although it glitches) and then heading up to the bar upstairs where I have Nelson order drinks for the entire group. They do spend some time talking and then everyone heads home.

This is probably just as well since that evening finds multiple of the contestants and even Nelson transformed. Nelson even runs off the lot for a while. This happened in my original try at inopportune times, so I’ll take this.

Day 3: Small Outings

The third day of the challenge finds Nelson awake and doing yoga after his night of wolf running. No one joins him and he completes his yoga session quietly.

This day will be small group dates for the contestants. We will do the lowest 4 and then the highest 3 in two individual groups. Before heading out for the day though Nelson and three of the girls watch some TV together.

Nelson takes Isabella, Kara, Margarita, and Maddison to a cafe. There they had some coffee and pastries, and then he plays foosball upstairs with Isabella and Maddison. We had invited Kara to join but she didn’t come up for some reason.

The second small group is made up of all the guys in the group. They head out to a restaurant to have some dinner. They get through dinner, doing a little bit of talking, but a celebrity walked in and caused quite a bit of ruckus. Once that happened they paid the bill and got out of there.

By the time the group got home and started heading inside Nelson collapsed. He obviously got overworked for the day. It’s tough being a bachelor in this challenge when there is so much going on.

Day 4: Elimination Day

The next morning Bentley was in werewolf form and working on destroying a lot of items. He also came in and snarled at Nelson. These werewolves in fury mode are pretty interesting.

After getting up Nelson decides it’s time to make some breakfast of some kind. I can’t remember if he made an individual meal or if he made a group meal, but either way. Everyone else starts getting up.

Oh, that’s right, Nelson made a grand meal so we could have everyone come down. Nelson told a group story to everyone, with some breaks to howl. This is the ‘requirement’ for the day to help make sure everyone has interacted with him and can continue to if they would like to.

So at 7 PM, we take a screenshot of the household members. In looking at this is decently clear who is headed home. Bently and Kara are the lowest for sure, but Kara is the lowest overall. Cooper so far is running away with the competition so far. We’ll see if anyone else gets close to him by the next elimination.

So we say goodbye to Kara who moves out of the house and we prepare for the next set of outings. So far this is going much better than the original try I had, so I hope it’s been interesting for you as well. We will see what happens during the next 4 days soon!

SimNaNo Totals:

Words: +1,116 | 1,116 / 6,000 (3,668 / 12,620)
Pictures: +32 | 32 / 180 (109 / 410)

So like normal I will not be counting the title, links, or this box of information in my word totals so I do not ‘pad’ my numbers unfairly. (There are 63 words in all of those)

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.

  1. I’m glad that your second go at this is going better! The Bachelor challenge can be a little frustrating because sims are both agresivelly social and terrible to interact for some reason lol. The wolves in fury mode do add a little extra lol I haven’t played that much with them so far so I didn’t knew they can run off like that, that’s fun lol.
    Cooper do seem to have it in the bag so far, let’s see if he can keep it up!

    1. Yes, it’s been quiet the challenge for sure. It’s been interesting and kind of a fun way to get to know werewolves a tiny bit, just seeing what they do all on their own.
