    Why would you do this.

    I mean it's pretty obvious on twitter that devs love their youtubers and tbf there are amazing creators out there but

    a reality show? really? :/

    So yea, on Business Insider about the Sims Spark'd they have it mentioned as 11pm ET.
    On here it's 10am PT, so for me, central time zone, it'll be 12pm.

    Another site, I forget which one it was, mentioned a time that would have also been wrong.

    Please get these news sites to say the correct times.
    It would not be 11pm in the eastern time zone if it'll be 10am pacific time.

    *Variety website shows 11pm ET/PT on TBS 🤷‍♀️?

    I like the idea of challenges in the gallery, but I'll never do it because I'm not interested in being part of a gameshow. I wouldn't expect to be picked, but I don't even want the remote chance of it.

    I might check this show out... Or I could forget about it like I did with some other shows I wanted to watch.

    It does seem like it follows the format of reality TV Game shows in some sense, so I might keep my eye out for this.

    I feel like fixing more issues in TS4 and adding more depth to game play would've been... more exciting than a reality show. I'll pass.

    This sounds an interesting concept. The idea of being able to win approx £79,497 (according to Google. I say approx because inflation rates?) for doing challenges on The Sims is very appealing!
    I wouldn't mind having a go, the only thing putting me off is the having to show emotion on international TV. (I don't want to be filmed crying!) 😳

    Is there anywhere online that people will be able to watch this? (I'm in the UK)


    That's misleading, because the prize money will be divided among the winning team participants and then about half of that amount will be spent on US and UK taxes (or other country, depending on where you're from).

    Oh I see, sorry I must have not read it properly. I did think 100,000 US dollars was very generous! In that case please ignore the UK £ version of the winnings I stated earlier then.

    I'm also a bit confused by the times. Is Pacific Time a USA timezone? (I'm not a geographer either 😁).

    I won't support anything that has a connection with Buzzfeed.

    @WhatCobblers Yes, Pacific Time is a USA time zone. It covers the West Coast of the USA, including California where EA's Global Headquarters are located. If you want more time confusion, here is a USA time zone map with current times:

    @Simberella777 Thank you. That's useful to know. 🙂

    Wow! It will be interesting to see. And how did the organizers choose the participants? Who knows?

    It looks interesting but I would like a list of the contestants I can’t find one anywhere

    As far as a time I don't know.

    Okaaaay, it's July 17th now. Nothing. Do I need to wait for America to wake up or what....
    To all simmers out there in today's troubled world, keep safe and keep on simming.
    Great, I sound like an inspirational poster now. There's worse things.

    Yes! Hahah

    But seriously... yes you do. I expect not east coast either, I imagine it will be west coast time so likely hours yet still for Europe and the next day for Australia, unless they want to wake up at 2am.

    The first challenge is Wedding and the themes are Beach, Jungle, Casino, Spooky or Rustic.

    So for basegame players I guess we're stuck with only being able to do Rustic.

    In my mind, a nice beach wedding venue would be a beautiful choice.

    Did they forget to cut that bit at the end? It sounds like it didn't belong there.
    English is not my first language so sorry if I make any mistakes!
