Round 1: Contender (Season 1: Fall)

Contender Household:

Carlos Contender: Romance/Grilled Cheese  |  LTW: Become Professional Party Guest  |  First Wishes: Influence Someone to Make for Sim/Serve/Talk to Sim About/Make Grilled Cheese  |  Fulfilled First: Serve Grilled Cheese to Jessica


Having grilled cheese as a secondary aspiration made Carlos a SUPER easy sim to keep happy in the beginning.  For the first day he wanted to make, eat and serve a lot of grilled cheese.  He got a phone call and we answered it, and was invited to go on an outing.  With Megalahood we try and answer phones and go on outings.

So off Carlos went on an outing.  The person who called him to go was Jessica Peterson.

Being first and foremost a Romance sim Carlos enjoyed Jessica's attentions.  He also REALLY wanted to make her grilled cheese, so he invited her back to his place.

Serving her GC was his first successfully fulfilled wish, as she called for the outing pretty early in the day and stayed late into the night.  They enjoyed the hot tub for awhile too.

He went to work the next day and brought home a friend.  This is Nathan Gavigan, whom we saw in the very first entry of Megalahood.

He wished to bring Jessica over, and things went very well.

Not paying too close attention to my own rules (since marriage NOT engagement is "required), he wished to get engaged to Jessica, and so we took the plunge.  She was thrilled.  Then all wishes for Jessica disappeared.  Jessica will probably want to marry him, but we'll see when we get there.

Then Carlos called his next closest lady friend, suddenly throwing more romance interactions than GC's wishes.  Although those weren't gone.  He feeds GC to Chastity Gere and they have a good lunch.

Carlos was wanting to have multiple loves now, so he greeted every girl he could that passed by.

Then Carlos threw a wish to swim, so we let him enjoy his pool for a bit.  I have NEVER seen a sim dive like this before, so that was really fun for me.  Carlos is in GREAT shape.

When Carlos went downtown he met Brandi Kim.  They weren't hitting it off great, but she asked if he wanted a blind date.  Carlos was in the mood of course and said yes.  Out drops Kristen Loste, who is officially from Strangetown.

They hit it off VERY well, and both are soon crushing on each other.  This is good because Carlos really wants to public woohoo with someone.  Originally he came here to do that with Chastity, but apparently she doesn't have a phone.

They hit it off REALLY well and Carlos gets his Public Woohoo wish fulfilled.  Oh, he also now wants to get engaged to Chastity at this point.  Of course, he can't cause he's already engaged to Jessica, and since he can't invite Chastity downtown where Jessica could see them together.....

One of the GREAT things about Kristen is she talks GC.  Carlos really wanted to talk to someone about it, and she obliged quite willingly.

Carlos was ready to move on to more loves so we invited the next closest love who was Kimberly Cordial, Samantha's sister.  Carlos was already in love with her from before.

Then he moved onto the next one.  He was struggling to really find a connection to anyone and that was true of Tammy here.  I don't remember her last name, but she is a townie.

Late fall Carlos suddenly wanted to start working out.  He woke up every morning and wanted to swim and work out on his exercise equipment.  Maybe he thinks Jessica is going to take him away from the house when we reach her...unless they break up first.

 After those wishes were completed we were back to GC wishes and romantic wishes.  So he visited community lots.  I found it funny that one of the most well known and prolific romancers of the Sims, Don Lothario was here that day too.

Carlos also has family in Megalahood, his niece and her family came over to end the round.  He is pretty close to his grand niece Sofia.



Carlos: Started out REALLY easy with GC wishes.  Every time he stopped eating a sandwich he wanted to eat more.  Getting 5 was a piece of cake.  Then started the romantic type wishes.  Easy early on using already established romantic options to make his way through wishes.
Ending Wishes: Public Woohoo, Ask Sim on Date, Work Out on Exercise Machine and Go Swimming 


  1. Yeah I love Carlos. In my megahood he married Brandi Broke. :D
    He is enjoying sewing his wild oats here though isn't he? I'm glad he's found someone to talk the cheese with!
    Usually the higher body skill a sim has, the better dives they do. :)

    1. Thanks for reading. :) I figured body skill had to do with the dive. Most of my sims don't have pools, so that was a treat. Carlos is quite an interesting character wish wise, and I was THRILLED he found someone to talk grilled cheese with. :)

  2. Funny how Carlos' wishes changed in the course of the week, and funny that he, a Romance Sim, should want to get engaged - and then wants to get engaged AGAIN :-D

    1. He was all about engagements this round for sure. I found it funny too. I thought to invite Chastity and Jessica to the same lot and have Carlos "cheat" on Jessica to get her mad at him and possibly break up, but with Chastity not having a phone that didn't work so well. :)

  3. Heh yeah that is the plan I have for my 5 wishes game. If a romance sim rolls get engaged (and doesn't roll get married right away) he/she must break up with the first fiancee if a second fiancee is wished for. ;)

    1. I don't remember what order of play I set, but I keep hoping Chastity will be before Jessica so I can try to make her jealous. I really don't want to make Carlos move out of his nice house.

  4. Strange that he wished for anoter engagement when he already have one - I don't think I ever saw that happening

    1. He is very interested in getting engaged so far. Not so hot on the marriage part, but very interested in the engagement. lol
