Day 17 Highlights

Sim Brother 2006 - Couples Special

2:06AM - It's the 17th day in the house. Last night the housemates had access to a bar during their final re-ranking task. Together, the housemates consumed almost all of the bar's contents. Andy has been in the en-suite bathroom throwing up for 18 minutes.
Pete:
That's it, get rid of all that poison you downed a few hours ago.
Andy:
I just wanted to have a good time when we had the chance.
Pete:
I know, but are the after affects really worth it?

Kelly and Liam are also up. They haven't been to bed yet, and have spent most of the last three hours in the house bathroom.
Liam:
Ok, I think that's all of it.
Kelly:
Good, let's go to bed. We drank way too much.
Liam:
Yeah, but it was a good night, wasn't it!?
Kelly:
Defiantly.. but we've still got the not so good 'angover to come.
Liam:
Another reason to go to bed then. Come on.

7:37AM - Anne and Mary are the first couple to get up. Last night, Anne was the only housemate to drink no alcohol. Mary has 2 glasses of wine. They were ranked as the bottom couple.
Anne:
I bet the other's are feeling dreadful.
Mary:
Pete will be alright. He only had a coupe of beers.
Anne:
Yeah, he could still get to bed by himself anyway!
Mary:
I think it was enjoyable night.
Anne:
Oh yes. It was nice to have something to do.
Mary:
Do you think we'll be allowed in there again?
Anne:
It would be nice if we were. I'd like to have a go on the karaoke again.
Mary:
I don't think the others would like that. We were awful!
Anne:
I know, but it's just been a while since we gave the old vocal cords a stretch.
Mary:
(Laughs) I think our vocal cords are already stretched to max my love.
Anne:
(Laughs). It was a shame to loose the private bedroom, wasn't it?
Mary:
Yes, but we'll be fine how we are. The others will help us out with our shopping.
Anne:
Of course they will.

8:04AM - Kelly and Liam were woken by Sim Brother 4 minutes ago. They are sitting in the seeting area with Anne and Mary.
Anne:
How are you both feeling?
Liam:
My head's killing me.
Kelly:
Mine too.
Mary:
Oh dear.
Anne:
We were just talking about how it would be good to go in that room again, but by the sounds of it, you two wouldn't want to.
Kelly:
No, we would! It was the best night we've had in 'ere. You two singing karaoke was my 'ighlight!
Mary:
(Laughs).
Liam:
It really did sound like you were treading on a cat at one point.
Anne:
(Laughs) It's been a while since we sang.
Kelly:
I thought old people sang along to TV theme tunes and things.
Anne:
Oh, we do, but we don't have to sound good in our own homes.
Kelly:
(Laughs). I see.
Liam:
We should be doing our shopping soon.
Kelly:
We'll have to wait for those two to get up.
Liam:
That reminds me, were never going to get a lie in, in 'ere now.
Kelly:
Yeah. I really wanted that room at least once.
Liam:
It's not fair.

10:42AM - The housemates have been making their final shopping lists for 12 minutes. Because it's the final time each couple has been given extra money. Andy and Pete has received a budget of £125. Kelly and Liam have received a budget of £90 and Anne and Mary have received a budget of £60.
Pete:
Have you looked at the luxury section yet Kelly?
Kelly:
No, net yet. 'ave you?
Pete:
Nope, just got there now.. oh my god!
Anne:
What is it!?
Pete:
The pub key!
Kelly:
Yes!
Pete:
It lets us all enter between 7PM and 11PM on any night.
Kelly:
Can't we enter all day?
Pete:
No, but we get to go in there every night, so that's pretty good.
Mary:
How much will it cost you?
Pete:
£60
Kelly:
What!? That's the same as the whole of Anne's and Mary's budget!
Andy:
Yeah, it is pretty steep.
Anne:
You could still get it. We can buy all our food ourselves, so we don't need any help.
Kelly:
Yeah, the bottom couple have got it easy this time!
Pete:
Alright, we'll get it. Oh, the bowling alley ones on again. Are you and Liam going to get that? It's £30.
Kelly:
Yeah, we might as well.

2:19PM - The housemates shopping arrived nineteen minutes ago. Mary is making all the housemates homemade hamburgers.
Andy:
They look great.
Mary:
Hopefully they'll taste great too.
Anne:
Don't be so modest Mary. She's an excellent cook.
Pete:
Kelly's a great cook too.
Anne:
I know.
Kelly:
I learn everything of the yummy channel.
Pete:
We know. Your always talking about it!
Kelly:
(Laughs) I love it!
Liam:
After lunch we can go bowling and then to the pub.
Anne:
It sounds like were going on night out!
Pete:
We are in a way, just without leaving the house.
Kelly:
I'm going to go a bit easier on the drink tonight though.
Anne:
Good.
Kelly:
Maybe you should have some tonight Anne. It's your turn to get drunk.
Anne:
Oh no, that's my thing.
Kelly:
(Laughs) It would be funny to see you drunk.
Anne:
I can't get drunk just for your entertainment.
Kelly:
(Laughs) Shame. It might of 'elped with your singing!

2:47PM - The housemates are eating dinner.
Pete:
You weren't wrong about Mary's cooking, Anne. This is good stuff.
Kelly:
Yeah. I've never seen anything on the yummy channel to make burgers this good.
Pete:
Do you actually watch anything other than the yummy channel?
Kelly:
Yeah, of course. SimStation Dance and the workout channel are good too.
Pete:
By any chance is this illegal cable your hooked up to?
Kelly:
(Laughs) Of course. Everyone's got it on our estate.
Pete:
I thought it must of been, because it sounds rubbish!

4:07PM - The housemates are in the bowling alley.
Kelly:
Did you know this room was going to pink?
Andy:
How would you know that?
Kelly:
I know alot of stuff about this house.
Andy:
(Laughs) What are you talking about?
Kelly:
Me and Liam are moles. We were planted here by Sim Brother.
Andy:
Did you just forget to drop a 'h'!?
Kelly:
I don't really talk like that. That's just part of my cover.
Andy:
Oh my god!
Kelly:
(Laughs) I can't believe you fell for that! You should of seen your face!
Andy:
Face!? You nearly gave me a heart attack!
Kelly:
That was 'ysterical!

Liam: Do you think anything big will happen before we leave?
Pete:
I don't know. I don't want anymore surprises really.
Anne:
Unless there good ones.
Mary:
Which is unlikely in this house.
Liam:
It 'as been a good experience though. It's not been like I expected, but it 'as been good.
Pete:
That's how I feel about it too. I can't believe there's just four days to go. I wonder what the public think of us all.
Mary:
As long as there's at least one person who likes me and Anne I'm happy. I'd be really upset if Davina told us we got no votes.
Pete:
(Laughs) I'm sure that won't happen!
Liam:
You've survived an eviction too, so people do like you both.
Pete:
It now depends on who they like the most. That's the good thing about the winners vote. There voting because they like us and not because they don't.
Liam:
You and Andy have got a big chance of winning.
Pete:
Why?
Liam:
If you think back through Sim Brother history, you'll remember a lot of winners being gay. Darren in the 2005 series, Mark in the Christmas series...
Pete:
(Laughs) I suppose, but Anne and Mary are gay too.
Liam:
Great, me and Kelly have got no chance then! (Laughs).

7:15PM - The housemates have entered the Sim Brother pub.
Kelly:
You lot are acting like you've drunk 'alf the bar and we 'avn't had anything yet!
Liam:
Were just 'aving a good time.
Pete:
It's party week in the Sim Brother house!
Anne:
Ooh yeah!

Mary: Why have you suddenly become such a heavy drinker?
Andy:
It settles my nerves.
Mary:
What have you got to be nervous about?
Andy:
Were in the final week. There's just a few days left, and I'm scared. You don't know how much it would mean to me to win this. It will really give me a boost of confidence and help me start a singing career, which is my dream.
Mary:
Are you a good singer?
Andy:
Everyone says I am.
Mary:
Then there's nothing for you to be nervous about. You'll gain fame whatever position you and Pete leave in. Put down your drink my sweet, and lets hear you on that karaoke!
Andy:
(Laughs) I suppose your right. There's no point in being scared now. We've come along way.
Mary:
That's a good boy.

7:24PM
Kelly:
He's good!
Pete:
He sings all around the house at home. He loves singing.
Anne:
What's held him back, being a singer?
Pete:
Confidence.. or lack of it anyway. He lost a lot of confidence when he was younger.
Mary:
Why?
Pete:
His parents found out he was gay.. and they didn't like it. They haven't spoken to him since they found out.
Kelly:
Oh my god! That's awful.
Pete:
Yeah. That's why he was most annoyed with Marge and Greg too.
Liam:
Yeah, that makes sense now!

Andy: Thank you very much!
Kelly:
Woo!
Mary:
That was fantastic!
Liam:
Well done mate, smashing performance!
Andy:
You lot are enthusiastic about a bit of karaoke!
Pete:
We've got good reason to be. Your a great singer!
Kelly:
You defiantly are.
Andy:
Thanks everyone! That means a lot to me.
Kelly:
Right, who's going to show themselves up and go next?
Anne:
Ooh, I'll have a go.
Kelly:
Erm, anyone else? (Laughs).

10:42PM
Kelly:
I can't believe we let her sing.
Pete:
She has been trying all night. I don't think she'd of given up.
Kelly:
'as anyone got any ear plugs?
Anne:
Encore anyone?
All:
No!

On Thursday all three of the remaining couples will leave the house, but only one couple will leave as the winners. Who wins? You decide! Vote now on the Sim Brother home page, and tune into the final on Thursday night!
