Sim Date Series 3 - Episode 7

Mr Love: Welcome to episode 7 of Sim Date! I'm Mr Love, but of course, you already knew that! Tonight, one female sim will have her pick of three male sims! Let's meet the guys...

Mr Love: Here they are! From right to left we have Simon, Derek and... wait a minute. Your Derek!
Derek:
Yeah.
Mr Love:
Derek off Sim Brother 2005!?
Derek:
That's me.
Mr Love:
Oh my word! What an honour it is to meet you! It isn't often I get to mingle with fellow celebrities! It's usually a bunch of losers!
Simon:
Oi!
Mr Love:
Well Derek, welcome to the show! Oh that last guys Eric. Tell us a bit about yourselves!

Simon: Hi, I'm Simon and I'm 27. Girls just don't fancy me, because I've got a big nose! It's just the way I am, and I refuse to get it altered. Someone out there has to find this attractive!
Mr Love:
I doubt it. I mean, how would you kiss! You could take her eye out!
Simon:
Thanks very much for the sympathy and support (!).

Derek: Hi, I'm Derek, and if you know me from Sim Brother you'll know that I used to have a wife. We got a divorce the other week, and now I'm looking for someone new! I'm 40 years old, a kind and generous man and know how to treat a woman right!
Mr Love:
Good luck Derek, not that you'll need it, eh?

Eric: Hi, I'm Eric and I'm 24. I've just never had much luck with the ladies in the past, so I hope tonight when I walk out of this room I'll be walking out to meet my date!

Mr Love: Well we've met the guys and I've met Derek! I just can't believe it. It's fantastic. Anyway, I'll have to shut up now, because I won't be able to reveal the identity of contestant two to tonight's chooser. Let's introduce her!

Mr Love: Ladies and gentlemen, meet Hannah! She's 26 and a singer!
Hannah:
Hello! I'm so excited about this!
Mr Love:
Take a seat darling.

Mr Love: So Hannah, why have you decided to come on Sim Date?
Hannah:
Well, recently I've been a bit of a loner since... well, some idiot decided to leave me!
Mr Love:
Oh dear.
Hannah:
I want to find someone who's going to treat me right and not hurt me like that again (crying).
Mr Love:
Oh sweetheart, don't cry. You've come to the right place. We will find you a new partner who's right for you. If your unsuccessful tonight you'll go into the dates database and will stay there until your sorted.
Hannah:
Good.
Mr Love:
What did you think of the guys from their bios?
Hannah:
Well the 40 year old is maybe a bit out of my age range.
Mr Love:
Oh no, don't let that put you off! Older men are often a lot more romantic and affectionate.
Hannah:
Erm... ok.
Mr Love:
Let's see tonight's questions.

Mr Love: Wow, I'm impressed. These questions are a lot more helpful than usual.
Hannah:
That's exactly what I was thinking.
Mr Love:
Oh... I've just been informed that you can't ask contestant two question one.
Hannah:
How come?
Mr Love:
I can't tell you, but what do you want to ask contestant one, Eric?
Hannah:
I'll ask him the lifetime achievement one then.
Mr Love:
Rightio.

Eric: Well Hannah, I always wanted to go swimming with sharks when I was a teenager, so last year I got up the courage and swam amongst hundreds of sharks in the ocean. It was fantastic.
Mr Love:
Thank you Eric.
Hannah:
I'll ask contestant two what his best ambition is.

Derek: Well, it's a bit of a weird ambition, but I've always wanted to meet a wonderful lady, who I can love, and who loves me back, unlike my ex-wife! My ambition is to care for someone, for the rest of my life.
Hannah:
Aww..
Mr Love:
That was beautiful. Contestant three, what's your best quality?

Simon: Well I'd say it was my face, if it wasn't for the great big hooter sticking out of it! I guess that it'll just have to be my big grey eyes. I could stare into them for hours myself.
Mr Love:
Whatever...

Mr Love: It's time for you to get rid of one of the contestants, so who's it going to be?
Hannah:
Well they all sound like really nice guys, and I'm not really a shallow person, but I think a big nose would be quite annoying. I've got to say goodbye to Simon!
Mr Love:
Excellent choice... I wouldn't risk hugging him when he comes out if I was you...

Hannah: Sorry Simon.
Simon:
No worries! I'll find someone sooner or later.
Hannah:
Yeah, and I know a great plastic surgeon if you can't find anyone who likes it.
Simon:
Oh... right... thanks.

Hannah: He seemed pretty upset when I gave him the surgeons card.
Mr Love:
He'll get over it! It's time for you to ask a question of your choice to the remaining contestants. Have you got something in mind for each?
Hannah:
Yes. I'd like Eric to tell me how he treats women, and Derek to tell me what he thinks about dating a younger woman.

Eric: Well I think that I'm really smooth with my women, and romantic. It's all about making an effort. It defiantly isn't about finding the cheapest option for a date either. I really like to spoil them and make them feel special.
Derek:
I'm a bit on the fat side, with black balding hair, and I'm wearing a green jumper and jeans.
Mr Love:
Oh dear.

Hannah: Well Derek doesn't sound too appetising.
Mr Love:
Yeah, but your not a shallow person. It's what's on the inside that counts.
Hannah:
Nah, I'm going to choose contestant one.
Mr Love:
(sighs). Lets meet them then.

Hannah: Oh my god! I thought you sounded familiar. (Laughs). Sorry I didn't choose you.
Derek:
It's ok. I'll hopefully have another chance!
Hannah:
Yeah. Good luck.

Hannah: Oh man, your a vest wearer!
Eric:
Don't you like it?
Hannah:
No! I can't be seen out with you in that!
Mr Love:
I'm afraid you'll have to be, because it's time for your date right now!

We've sent Eric and Hannah to Bernard's Botanical Restaurant in the local downtown district. Hannah is still unhappy about Eric's clothes and is embarrassed to be with him.
Eric:
You don't have to stand so far away.
Hannah:
I'm pretending I'm not with you!

Hannah: I wish they'd let me sit somewhere else.
Eric:
What's wrong with this top?
Hannah:
It's just so scruffy looking.
Eric:
It's not like it's got all food down it or anything.
Hannah:
Yet.

Waitress: Are you ready to order?
Eric:
We'll both have the salmon please.
Hannah:
Excuse me, I can order for myself you know!
Eric:
You just said that's what you wanted.
Hannah:
So, I still wanted to order myself in case I changed my mind!
Eric:
Stop being so awkward! Sorry about this.
Waitress: It's ok. So you do want two salmons then?
Eric:
Yes please.
Hannah:
There you go again... just answering for me!
Eric:
Give it a rest!

Eric: You call me embarrassing. I don't start a big argument in a restaurant!
Hannah:
I thought we were 'giving it a rest'
Eric:
We are.
Hannah:
Shut up then.

The couple have been eating in silence for 15 minutes.
Eric: So, what job do you do?
Hannah:
I'm a singer.
Eric:
Cool.
Hannah:
Yeah, it's a good job.

The dates not going well. Eric's really trying to get to know Hannah, but she just answers his questions as plainly as possible and then goes quiet.
Eric: Should we go to the bar?
Hannah: Ok.

Hannah: Julie! Fancy seeing you here!
Julie:
Oh hello Hannah. On a date?
Hannah:
Sort of.
Julie:
I've been stood up again! Will you guys hang out with me. I hate being seen alone!
Hannah: Yeah sure. Do you mind?
Eric:
Yes! Were supposed to be on a date.
Hannah:
Yeah, but I can't leave a friend alone...
Eric: Whatever. You stay, but I'll be going. Bye!

Hannah decided to stay with her friend Julie, who had followed Hannah from the studio to the date location to give Hannah a reason to end the date if needed.
Julie: I thought he was ok, but I know how you feel about vests.
Hannah: Well I considered waiting a bit longer, to see how things went, but I was embarrassed to be seen with him.

Hannah's secret plan got her out of a date she didn't want to be on, and poor Eric was left all alone and had to go home. Will you give either of them another chance in the upcoming interactive episodes, and will they ever get a success story? Stay tuned!
