In this upcoming week, a new rule has been placed - every 100 Simoleons of debt a Sim is in counts for one vote against them. This is to prevent clever Sims from potentially living for weeks at The Addison House without even attempting to pay off their debts. Sims should strive to pay off their debts - one or two votes against you can be costly at the end of the week.
Moving on, this week's task is: Logic! Three telescopes and four chemistry stations have been placed in The Addison House. Money this week will largely be awarded in prizes at the end of the week: the contestant with the most logic skill points will not only be awarded Immunity, but will also be given 75 Simoleons. The Sim with the second-most logic points earns 50 Simoleons, and third place earns 25 Simoleons. However, contestants can also earn money by discovering potions with the chemistry station. Whatever each potion is worth, will be awarded to them.
Another fun catch? If a potion with a negative affect (i.e. Liquid Horror) is discovered by a Sim, that Sim's least-favorite fellow contestant must drink it right away! If a potion with a positive affect (i.e. Mood Enhancer) is discovered, that Sim may hold onto it and use it whenever they like.
Now let's see what trouble our delightful contestants got into this week.
Several things were rather common this week. Among them...
...getting blown up by the chemistry table. This is Lara...I think.
Dewayne: Gee, I hope no one walks in while I'm stark naked in the middle of the kitchen. That would be embarrassing...
Stefan: Vhy did Devayne shoo me from room? Maybe I should go see...
Stefan: Your face suggests a llama!
Alyssa: Stefan! That isn't nice!
Stefan: You're right, it's not fair to the llamas.
On their logical pursuits, the contestants found some interesting things through their telescopes.
French-fried Lucas is distressed that the house across the streets has no kitchen lamps.
Singed Dewayne always has to keep an eye on the cop cars. We're starting to get concerned about him.
Lara is being corrupted by her first viewing of porn.
Stefan is a little worried that he can see Dewayne in his telescope when Dewayne is actually inside the house. Now we're REALLY starting to get concerned about him.
Their potion tinkering also went fairly well. Ever-persistent Lucas was the first to discover the Stink Juice potion, which he promptly gave to Stefan. For whatever reason, Stefan has been utterly tormenting Lucas - they both strongly dislike each other now. It was sweet revenge for Lucas when Stefan immediately got hit with a stench...unfortunately, Stefan quickly discovered the same potion himself and doled it right back to Lucas.
Other than Lucas and Stefan, the only other contestant to discover a potion was (perhaps not surprisingly) geeky Rocco. He found the Stink Juice AND the Bladder Flow potion and gave them both to Dewayne. He can't stand him because he doesn't make sense to him.
We have some drama blossoming! Things are starting to get very heated with Stefan - he is actually displaying physical violence.
Later, Stefan actually started a fight with Lucas, which our cameras weren't quick enough to catch. However, we did get the aftermath...
Stefan: Vhatever. I let you vin.
Lara: Not impressed, Stefan. Not impressed.
But, ho...a potential friendship developing between Stefan and Saki?
And another development! We have our first pair of friends on the show.
Of course, no episode is complete without seeing who got sent to the haunted cellar! Which careless contestants broke appliances and received their punishments this time?
One of those three times occurred toward the end of the week. Stefan had been getting more and more volatile and during a period they were actually locked in the cellar together. The filthy conditions were enough to set Stefan off.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, it is time to announce the winner of Immunity this week. The Sim guaranteed to stay for Week Three is.....Rocco!
We sure are, Eddie...I mean, Rocco. Though all the contestants worked very hard (all except for Saki got at least 5 1/2 skill points), Rocco pulled away with 7 1/3 logic skill points. Alyssa came in second with 7 1/4 points (one time she literally stayed up ALL NIGHT with the chemistry table...no sleep!), while Lara came in third with 6 skill points.
Money standings have also changed dramatically:
This will count as two votes against Saki. This may be a game-changer, folks.
Saturday the contestants had some fun being kids again on a playground built in the backyard for the day.
Dewayne: I can cross my legs like a girl.
Rocco: ...*sigh*. Stefan, Saki, you're in the bottom two.
Saki: It's okay, I smell the money. Stefan's been such a [bleeeeeeep]. I got this.
Rocco: The one who leaves The Addison House is...
Talk about a surprise turn of events! Even the contestants are too shocked to point (except for Stefan, but that's pretty obvious). Saki's unpaid debt ended up being bigger than she'd anticipated. If she'd put more effort into skill-gaining (to get Immunity) or earning money to pay off the debt, those two votes wouldn't have done her in. Even if she'd had $199 in debt, only one vote would've counted. That one vote literally meant the difference. Drama-causing Stefan stays one more week.
And we wish you luck too, Saki. We'll miss you.
