Contestant: Sean Jennings [Sims in Love: Bachelorette Edition]

You may not realize it, but the gallery is basically groups of sims in the following configurations:

  • single
  • mom, dad, children (teens and younger)
  • mom, dad

Rare exceptions to the above. It is the exceptions I’m after. Unique with a story that I can embellish as needed to give the sim something more than just a name and clothes.

It is no wonder I’m having trouble auditioning for the contestant spots. I did find Sean. I thought the story was interesting and since he starts as a teen I of course need to age up the family appropriately.

Saul and Teresa Jennings are not great parents. Not a nice thing to say, but quite accurate. Therefore, the bulk of the parenting rests on their twin boys. Sean and David are used to juggling school, work and parenting, but now that they both have their eyes on some special someones, life just got a bit more complicated. #chelepopulatestheworld #townie #townies #nocc #ccfree #backstory #family #largefamily #adult #teen #child #toddler #pregnant #cute #hot #lgbtq #guy #maleSim #femaleSim

Backstory: Sean Jennings

Sean has a twin brother named David. The two spent their teenage years raising their younger brother and sister as best as two kids could. Now they are grown up looking to find a way out of their current living situation.

Sean has set his sights on this new Bachelorette show he saw on television. He got his acceptance letter today and is trying to not feel guilty by leaving his brother David behind to care for Ian and Susan.

Sean wants love and a family. Will the bachelorette be “the one”? He hopes so, this house is getting very small.

Prologue Requirements

For this one I wanted to see if an existing lot by Maxis would work – much like for my last contestant. Brook Bungalow in Willow Creek fit the bill. I had to add another twin bed to the toddler’s room; however it works. I’m trying to ensure all my contestants have a double bed at their house … because WooHoo is allowed on those dates 🙂

In adding clothes to Sean I discovered he was either barefoot or wore green sneakers. Even in formal. This will be fun. Because he is creative I started him on the writer career. I had to give him a few skills to help:

  • Writing 7
  • Painting 5
  • Charisma 3
  • Fitness 6

I walked away for about 30 minutes and let them run around a do whatever. Did a quick save and exited – so any previews on his family will come with the home visit!

Contestant: Jaiden McCurdy [Sims in Love: Bachelorette Edition]

Again this was found in the gallery and while most of the households I find are a complete unit with wife and kids – so much so I was thinking of doing those and aging everyone up hahaha.

Then I found this gem. Jaiden is still a teen here but a quick adult up will suit him fine. I turned aging off in my game save so that no one will age beyond what they are starting out for the duration of the show.

Back to Jaiden. He comes with mom and dad plus two younger siblings. He isn’t too bad looking either so that is a bonus plus. I’m not really paying attention to traits – that fun will come with the show itself!

The McCurdys are what you can call a dysfunctionall family! Money can buy you anything but when ego comes in the way it’s hard to make it work. Will they pull through or will the family break apart? #drama #dysfunctional #dysfunctionalfamily #story #backstory #hyaleroux #family #5sims #teen #child #adult #seaons #nocc #ccfree #catsanddogs #cityliving #gettogether #gettowork #comments #parenthood #spaday #vintageglamour

Since this family has stuff from packs I don’t have I will have to edit the CAS for them. Looks like they all ended up bald hahahahaha.

Outfits were just randomish as needed. I wanted to spend more time on who they were as a family – such as jobs and skills needed. I want them to run autonomously and just be a normal family.

Backstory: Jaiden McCurdy

Jaiden did not get the best start in life in forming relationships. His whole family hates children and growing up with parents who were never home turned him into an evil adult who also hates kids. He is going onto the show for popularity and does not expect to fall in love.

Jaiden wants to marry a beautiful woman but doesn’t want to settle down and have a family. He wants to party and move up to Boss in his career. He doesn’t have time to tend to a jealous wife and hopes to find someone who is happy to spend his money and raise their kids. He may not like them but his dad brainwashed him with the whole family legacy thing and so he will spread his seed. What his wife doesn’t know won’t hurt her, right? If he can find one first…

Prologue Requirements

Jaiden is in a criminal career and I gave him the following starter skills for that. We’ll see where he ends up!

  • Mischief 10
  • Handiness 6
  • Logic 6
  • Charisma 6

Blake is the father so I put him on the Business track. I gave him a few promotions so he brings home a decent amount every day. I went the investor route and upped his Charisma and Logic Skills.

Ivana is the mom and she also had the business savvy trait so I went with it but decided she would take the management route.

Larissa is all about the music but as a teenager (game is bugged and says she is a young adult but she is a teenager lol) so for now she can be a Barista. She doesn’t need the money but her parents made her get a job and she liked coffee so win win.

Beau is still a child, even if he appears to be a teen (silly bug). I made him a scout for after-school. His parents work long hours and they wanted him looked after until they were home. So even though he hates being a scout he has no choice.
