Casting Call for The Geeky Bachelor

«1
Hey, everyone! I have decided to start a The Bachelor style challenge with my Simself, who will be the founder of my legacy. This is a different and unusual start to a legacy challenge, but that's what makes it fun!

9PYUA0M.jpg

Seven lucky ladies will get to stay in a luxurious mansion in the glamorous city of Del Sol Valley, to compete at winning the heart of our geeky bachelor, Divan Lampright! Our bachelor likes to travel, so we'll see about staying in different towns each week! ;)

Every third day, the lady with the lowest relationship with the bachelor will not receive a rose and has to leave the house. Autonomy will be on full for the most part and I will not force anything to happen - the Sims will decide! The last remaining lady will move to Brindleton Bay with Divan, ̶w̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶y̶'̶l̶l̶ ̶l̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶h̶o̶b̶o̶s̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶m̶o̶s̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶i̶r̶ ̶l̶i̶v̶e̶s̶,̶ ̶r̶a̶i̶s̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶c̶h̶i̶l̶d̶r̶e̶n̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶r̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶ ̶e̶n̶d̶s̶ ̶m̶e̶e̶t̶!̶

You're welcome to submit your Sims' dogs as well, since this is a double legacy of sorts (my Simself and his Jack Russell Terrier, D.J., are the founders). The story will be called The Geeky Bachelor and will be published on my blog.

Submission Requirements:

* I will only be accepting the first 7 submitted Sims (and their dogs), who will all be sharing a house throughout the challenge.
* All submitted candidates have to be female, young adults, human and able to get pregnant. The dogs (if they have any) have to be female, adults and able to have puppies.
* I own all the packs (except Realm of Magic, thus far) and I prefer no CC (except if you use Kijiko's 3D eyelashes).
* The amount of outfits are up to you, but the more the merrier! Dress to impress!
* Traits and aspirations are completely up to you.
* Please post their bios on this thread, as well as your Origin ID (share where they come from, what work they do, what their interests are and what they're looking for in a partner).
* Upload your candidates with the hashtags #legacyloves #thegeekybachelor
* Submission deadline is 5 October 2019.

Contestants:

* @SoulGal7 - Nikki Valentine
* @kittymeow - Nancy Elliot & Daisy
* @nerdfashion - Jessica Johnson & Alaska
* @pammiechick - Gemma Smiley & Pixel
* @Becka28 - Lila Kaplan & Cairo
* @Irishsong - Trish McGregor & Marshmellow
* @VanPelt81 - Mildred Cupterberg & Fifi

    Jessica Johnson is the youngest of three, who happen to be identical triplets! She grew up in the Arts Quarter of San Myshuno, in a now-abandoned penthouse, and is currently living in Willow Creek. She is a computer programmer for Myshuno Tech, and loves her dog Alaska more than anything... except for Blickblock!

    This sort of thing sounds fascinating, except that for whatever reason, I have a strong preference for playing male Sims. I do have a female Sim I would love to throw into the mix, but she's as likely to get sick of the charade and decide she's all out of bubblegum.

    You can totally submit her - if it's meant to be, it'll be! If not, that's also okay.

    Name of sim: Nikki Valentine

    Background story: Ever since Nikki was young, she wanted to be an entertainer. She had a natural talent, and sims in her hometown of Willow Creek told her she could be a star. So, she packed her bags and headed to Del Sol Valley for fame and fortune. She got gigs almost immediately and did well. But the rise to the top was long, and she was pretty lonely. Especially when she came home at night, there was no-one there to greet her. She had a dog once, a pink poodle named Fifi. They used to cuddle on the couch together and watch rom-com movies. Maybe she needed a dog again. As she headed to the animal shelter, she saw a flyer for The Geeky Bachelor contest. Hmmm....maybe what she really needed was a man. But she still thought that a dog might be a better idea. Oh, but wait, he loves dogs, too. Nikki thought there might be some hope. A man who could walk her dog. Now there's a thought!

    Aspiration: Joke Star
    Traits: Cheerful, Music Lover, Dog Lover

    ♥♥♥ GEMMA SMILEY & PIXEL ♥♥♥

    kukP4Qr.jpg

    Painter Extraordinaire | Geeky | Dance Machine | Dog lover

    2HyWzLG.jpg

    Friendly | Loyal | Smart

    Gemma gets her good looks from her father, Jax, but not his outgoing disposition. A certified geek, she loves anime, manga, and k-dramas all the while she writes a webtoon on the side for funsies. She adores dogs, especially her mixed breed, Pixel. And she's really into computers and hopes to be a 3 D animator one day. Living in the city all her life, Gemma hopes to travel and get out of the smog and filth!

    Being the geeky girl she is, she often finds herself a bit lonely. She hopes her luck will change in meeting with the geeky bachelor! (She's dying inside--she thinks he's SO CUTE!) She wants to find someone who enjoys the geeky things she does but also someone who likes to have fun!

    Name: Nancy Elliot and Daisy

    Bio: Nancy is very artsy, she loves everything to do with art. She feels it is a great way to express her feelings and creativity. Nancy is in hopes of some day becoming known for her paintings, maybe others will see the beauty in the art work like she does.

    Being a hopeless romantic but never really finding anyone she clicks with, she dreams of finding the one and having a wonderful life with them. Maybe Nancy will steal the heart of the geeky bachelor, a girl can hope. Nancy is known to be a goofball, she loves making others laugh. Some may find her annoying with all the jokes she tells but she doesn't care as long as she is making someone laugh.

    Nancy loves to take her little Dachshund/Corgi mix out to the park for a walk.

    Have made a sim for this

    Name: Mildred Cupterberg & Fifi
    Bio: Though a young adult, Mildred Cupterberg is a bit of a throwback in that her favorite fashion styles, music, and movies are relics from her great grandmother's generation in the 1940's. Mildred is a librarian who is passionate about all sorts of literature. Mildred is also a romantic at heart that hopes to find a soul mate and have children, a few pets, the house in suburbia with the white picket fences (aka the standard cliche wants though she wants to make sure her kids are passionate about books instead of video games like her game designer estranged half brother.) Mildred has a jealous streak that she claims doesn't exist though anyone who knows her will tell you how jealous she gets behind her back. Mildred also spoils her poodle Fifi, who is a very out of control dog in need of a trip to obedience school.
    Aspiration: Successful Lineage
    Traits: Romantic, Jealous, Bookworm

    Mildred and Fifi can both be found with the hashtags #legacyloves #thegeekybachelor as well as the link above (their picture is also there.)
