The GAME Series 1 - Episode 5 - Sim Brother Special

Darren: Welcome back to The GAME! Were back after our short break.. ok, our break was a little longer than it should of been, but the producer of this show also produces Sim Brother and he's been a little busy in the Sim Brother studios. Speaking of Sim Brother, that's what today's episode is all about, because this is our first The GAME special! Our contestants today aren't playing for cash, they're playing to prove they are the ultimate Sim Brother fan. What they don't know yet is that the winner will actually be appearing on Sim Brother's spin off show this Wednesday, along with me! Let's meet today's contestants.

Darren: Our first contestant tonight is Cheryl! Cheryl is a 21 year old university student. She claims to know everything there is to know about Sim Brother and has been watching the show since it began back in 2003. She's such a fan that her and some of her roommates had a four day marathon of watching the Sim Brother live stream. Cheryl, who is your favourite housemate this year in the 2006 series?
Cheryl:
Magenta! She's my age and she's like me in a lot of ways. I can really relate to her. I also love Becky. She's hilarious!
Darren:
Who don't you like?
Cheryl:
I hated Lewis, but he's gone, so there's no problems any more! I'm just loving the series, and I'm planning a five day marathon next week!
Darren:
Good luck with that!

Darren: Our second contestant tonight is Gavin. Gavin is a 23 year old farm hand. Gavin spends his free time collecting Sim Brother memorabilia, and as you can see he's managed to get one of the uniforms the housemates wore during the recent toy shop task. Gavin, how did you get that?
Gavin:
I managed to track down the store which supplied the costumes for the task. I'd obviously prefer a costume that was actually worn by one of the housemates, but I'll be bidding for those as soon as they appear on online auction sites.
Darren:
Which housemates clothes would you like to get?
Gavin:
I'm loving them all this year Darren. I think Danny washes the most though, so his might be the cleanest!

Darren: Up next is Maxine. She's 22 and is also a student. She missed out on the 2003 series, but picked up the show ever since the celebrity version. She actually applied to be a housemate this year. She claims to be a big fan of Davina. Is that why you're wearing the same dress as Davina?
Maxine:
Absolutely Darren. Without Davina, Sim Brother wouldn't be Sim Brother. We love her!
Darren:
Ok, so you love Davina, but which of this years housemates are you loving?
Maxine:
Danny! He's a real sweetheart. Dominic has been so nice to him too. It's really heart warming.
Darren:
And who do you want out of that house?
Maxine:
Becky! She's using Scott and she's trying to buy the other housemates. I bet some people have forgotten how she said she hated the show. She doesn't deserve to be in there Darren.
Darren:
I hope you and Cheryl don't get together on the pathway game, because she loves Becky!

Darren: Our final contestant is Patrick. He's 19 and he's another student! Do student's ever actually work, or do they just watch Sim Brother all of the time!?
Patrick:
We watch Sim Brother, drink and party Darren. We do the minimal amount of work and scrape through!
Darren:
Sounds like fun. Which housemates would you most like to party with, Patrick?
Patrick:
The young bunch. Danny, Magenta, Dominic, Mandy, Dakotah and even Becky.
Darren:
Is there anyone you actually don't like?
Patrick:
Scott. He's just a complete idiot and he's done nothing to entertain me.

Darren: You're all big fans of Sim Brother, but which of you is the biggest? It's now time to play The GAME and find out. Our first round is called our survey says... We asked our forum members a number of Sim Brother questions and they gave their answers. You will now be asked some of those questions, and if your answer is in the top three poll answers you will gain between one and three points. The person with the least points at the end of this round will be eliminated. There will be three questions in this round and the first is to name a housemate from Sim Brother 2005. Would each contestant please give their answer. You won't be able to hear each other.
Cheryl:
You Darren!
Darren:
Will the top answer really be that obvious? Gavin?
Gavin:
Darren!
Darren:
I'm flattered, but I'm sure I won't be top, even though I won. Maxine?
Maxine:
Rita. I loved her!
Darren:
So did I. Ok, and Patrick?
Patrick:
Joel!
Darren:
Lets see...

Darren: Ok, so I was at the top, which means Gavin and Cheryl both get three points each. Joel came second scoring Patrick two points, and my good old friend Rita was third, meaning you get one point Maxine.

Darren: The second question was to name the theme of one of the Sim Brother specials. There have only been three, so everyone should get at least one point here, but what came top. Cheryl?
Cheryl:
Celebrity!
Darren:
Yes, the first of the Sim Brother specials, which saw two x-files stars reunited, along with Hugh Grant, an Elvis impersonator, Avril Lavigne and Davina McCall herself! Gavin, what's your answer?
Gavin:
Couples!
Darren:
Yes, the latest special that took place at the start of this year. It was the first time ever where couples entered to work together to win the prize, instead of individual housemates. Maxine, what do you think came top?
Maxine:
Couples.
Darren:
Thank you Maxine. Finally, Patrick, what is your answer?
Patrick:
The Christmas series!
Darren:
The Christmas series was the first series where teenagers entered the house. Teenagers who claimed to hate their parents guts were whisked away from their families during the biggest family occasion of the year! Now let's see the answers...

Darren: The latest series came in at the top, which is to be expected. This earns Maxine and Gavin three points each. The celebrity series actually came in second, which means Cheryl gets two points. Patrick gets one point for his answer of the Christmas series.

Darren: Our final question in this round is to name a couple from the latest Sim Brother special. Once again, it's an easy question if you're a fan of the show, but will you be thinking along the same lines as our poll? Cheryl?
Cheryl:
Liam and Kelly.
Darren:
Yeah, the shows winners. I'll be surprised if they're not up there. Gavin?
Gavin:
Anne and Mary.
Darren:
I loved that couple. They were great entertainment! Maxine?
Maxine:
Liam and Kelly.
Darren:
Thank you Maxine. Patrick?
Patrick:
Andy and Pete.
Darren:
The shows runner ups. They should be up there. Let's see..

Darren: At the top are the shows winners, Liam and Kelly. Maxine and Cheryl get three points each for their answers. Up next is Mary and Anne gaining Gavin two points. The final top answer is Greg and Marge. Patrick, Andy and Pete, surprisingly, aren't up there, so you get no points. We'll now take a look at the points at the end of that round...

Darren: Cheryl and Gavin are currently joint first with eight points each. Maxine is close behind with seven points. I'm sorry Patrick, but that wrong answer in the last round has cost you, and you only have three points. You're out of the game..

Patrick: (Sighs) What a shame.
Darren:
Patrick, you're not the ultimate Sim Brother fan I'm afraid.
Patrick:
I am in my own eyes, and that's what matters.
Darren:
You've been a great contestant. The other's can't hear this, but the winner today is actually coming with me, this Wednesday to Sim Brother studios.
Patrick:
Oh man, a day with you and Davina at the Sim Brother house? I wish I'd done better.
Darren:
Good bye Patrick!

Darren: I really feel sorry for Patrick, because this prize to a Sim Brother fan means an awful lot. Were going to get on with The GAME and find out who's going to win that prize. Contestants, it's time for round too, called name that housemate! This round has replaced our usual catchphrase round, and all you have to do is buzz in and name that housemate as they flash up on the plasma screen. The catch is the housemates pictured has been obscured slightly. Get your fingers on your buzzers, because here comes the first housemate...

Darren: Buzz as soon as know!
(Gavin Buzzes)
Gavin:
That's Rupert from this year!
Darren:
It certainly is. He became the second housemate to be evicted just a few days ago, but it is defiantly him. Here comes the next housemate...

(Maxine Buzzes)
Maxine:
That green blur is Derek's jumper!
Darren:
Of course it is. Derek was in the same series as me, 2005. Here comes our final housemate. Gavin, you're through to the next round, so this is between Maxine and Cheryl only. You're both on eight points, so whoever doesn't get this is out of the game!

(Maxine Buzzes)
Maxine:
Is it Cheryl from the 2004 series Darren?
Darren:
That's correct and you gain a point. Cheryl entered the house during the series. In fact, she was the first housemate to enter Sim Brother while the series was already running. Since then we've seen a lot of late arrivals.

Darren: Cheryl, you have the same name. You should of remembered that one.
Cheryl:
I know. I was just a second too late with my buzzer. I'm ashamed of myself.
Darren:
Don't be. You're out of the game, but you do know your Sim Brother! Well done today.
Cheryl:
Thanks Darren. Can I just say I loved you when you were a housemate last year?
Darren:
Of course you can. Good bye Cheryl. Gavin and Maxine, join me outside your booths for our final round!

Darren: You've both done very well to get this far, but there can only be one winner, and one ultimate Sim Brother fan. How are you both feeling?
Gavin:
Excited. It's been a great privilege to get to come on the show, and show my love for Sim Brother at the same time.
Maxine:
I'm really excited too. I'm glad there isn't a prize today, because that title alone will be an honour to hold.
Darren:
Well, actually, there is a prize.
Gavin:
Oh my god! What?
Maxine:
Yeah, what is it?
Darren:
The winner of today's show will come with me to Sim Brother studios this Wednesday!
Maxine:
Oh my god! You're joking!?
Darren:
No, and it doesn't stop there, because you'll actually be coming on Sim Brother's spin off show with me, and you'll get to answer questions given to you by Davina!
Gavin:
Wow. We get to meet Davina too!? This is too good to be true.
Darren:
Well, it's true. Lets play our last round called pathway to find out which one of you gets that prize. All you need to do is reach the end of your pathway of coloured squares, by choosing either the red or purple square each time. Stepping on a square will reveal a symbol that allows you to continue, forces you to stop, or makes you answer a question correctly to keep control of the game. To start the game, each please step onto one of the first squares.

Both Gavin and Maxine get continues on their first squares and both proceed forward. Gavin is met by an symbol indicating control of the game goes to Maxine and he must wait.

Maxine moves forward once more to be met by the question symbol. She must answer Darren's question about Sim Brother correctly in order to keep control of the game and move forward along her pathway.
Darren: What was the first live task in the 2004 series?
Maxine: Hmm.. they were all pretty physical that year. I remember a volley ball one, a tennis one, a basket ball one and I think there was something to do with scuba diving.
Darren: You have a good memory, but is it good enough to remember which one was first?
Maxine: I'm going to go with tennis.
Darren: I'm afraid the correct answer was basketball, so Gavin gets control of the game.

Gavin get's one more continue taking him one square ahead of Maxine. He has been met with a question symbol and must answer it correctly in order to keep control of the game.
Darren: In the 2004 series again, what was the first weekly task?
Gavin: Erm.. that's a tough one. Let me think. I remember the one that was all about making their own food, the pairs one, and the pig farm... that was hilarious!
Darren: You've got a good memory too, but which task was first?
Gavin: I've just remembered... it was the decorating one!
Darren: That's correct. Move forward!

After moving forward Gavin had to pass the game back to Maxine, who has moved forward two squares. She has been met by a question symbol.
Darren: Who was the first housemate evicted in the 2005 series?
Maxine: That's easy! It was Toby. The public never gave that guy a chance!
Darren: I know, and I also know that it's the correct answer. You're three squares away from that prize, but will your chosen squares reveal what you want them to?
Maxine: I hope so!

Maxine moved forward one more time before having to pass the game back to Gavin. Gavin has reached the end of the pathway, but has been shown a question symbol. He must get the question right in order to win the game.
Darren:
Ok, for the prize of visiting Sim Brother Studios, who was the first housemate in the 2004 series to go into the isolation room?
Gavin:
I know this Darren, and it's Sam.
Darren:
Gavin, you have won! You are the ultimate Sim Brother fan!

Gavin: Oh yes! I'm meeting Davina! Ooh yeah! In your face Maxine!
Darren:
Maxine, you were so close. I'm sorry.
Maxine:
Well Darren, meeting the winner of Sim Brother 2005 is a big enough treat for me. But can I have a hug and your autograph?
Darren:
Of course you can, after the show! Gavin, you're visiting Sim Brother studios this Wednesday with me. Are you excited?
Gavin:
Do I look excited!?
Darren:
You certainly do.
Gavin:
I am excited. Thank you so much.
Darren:
No problem, but do me a favour...
Gavin:
Anything.
Darren:
Please don't wear that outfit when we go on Sim Brother's spin off show.
Gavin:
Whatever you say Darren. I've got Toby's jacket somewhere...
Darren:
(Laughs) Thanks for watching everyone. If you think you know Sim Brother, you can play our fifth interactive quiz now on the interactive page. Well done to Stewart who is the current champion. We'll see you next week for our last episode of the first series, which is a SimTV special. Good night.
