Sim Brother 2006 - Couples Special

12:59AM - Its the 19th day in the Sim Brother house. Over the final days in the house, couples can be called to the diary room at any time to complete a task, which will determine a change to their prize fund which currently stands at £94,000. All of the housemates are currently asleep.
Sim Brother:
This is Sim Brother, would Anne and Mary please come to the diary room.

Anne: Mary, were up! Quickly!
Mary:
(Groans)
Anne:
Stop moaning. Come on, let's move!

1:00AM - If the couple doesn't get to the diary room within a minute of being called they will instantly loose £10,000 of the prize fund.
Anne:
Run woman!
Mary:
I'm coming, I'm coming! Keep your knickers on!

1:01AM - Anne and Mary made it to the diary room with only one second left.
Sim Brother:
You made it to the diary room just in time. For your task you will each need to read either of the two books provided. You have five hours to read the books.
Mary:
I can't read that quickly.
Anne:
Me neither, but we'll have to try.
Sim Brother:
At around 6AM you will be asked five questions each about your book. Sim Brother will lower the prize fund to £84,000. For each question you get correct you'll get £1,000 back. If you can get all 10 questions correct, a bonus £5,000 will be added to the prize fund.
Anne:
Do we start now?
Sim Brother:
You may now begin.

2:06AM - Anne and Mary have been reading in the diary room for one hour. Mary is reading a love story about a man named Tony who cheats on his wife, Sophie, with a woman from work called Marie. Anne's reading a children's book about about a talking elephant called George and his life in the Savannah.
Mary:
This book is a load of rubbish.
Anne:
Mine is too. Talking animals all over the place!
Mary:
I don't mean mine's unrealistic, it's just so boring. This stupid guy's having an affair on his wife with a woman from work. Like we haven't got better things to do than read this junk.. like sleeping!
Anne:
Were doing this for the good of the house.
Mary:
I know. I didn't say I was giving up. It's just complete trash. They could of given us good books!

6:08AM - Anne and Mary have both finished their books in time.
Mary:
My story had one of those annoying endings where you don't actually find out what happens and have to come up with your own ending.
Anne:
At the end of mine all the talking animals had a big party together. It was a pathetic story.
Sim Brother:
It's now time for the questions to see how much of the book you have taken in. Anne, you will go first.
Anne:
Ok.
Sim Brother:
What was the name of Georges younger brother?
Anne:
Harold.
Sim Brother:
That is correct. When George got stuck in the mud, what was the name of the animal who rescued him, and what type of animal was it?
Anne:
It was a crocodile called Claire.
Sim Brother:
There were three hyenas in the story. What was the mother hyena called?
Anne:
Henrietta.
Sim Brother:
That's correct. Who set the acacia tree on fire, and why?
Anne:
(Laughs) It was Gerald the giraffe. He was too small to reach the top so tried to get the tree to fall over.
Sim Brother: That's correct. Finally, who saved George from the poachers?
Anne: Erm, I think it was Leo the lion, who scared them away.
Sim Brother: No. It was Lance the lion. Leo was too scared of the poachers to go near them.
Anne: Oh yes!

Sim Brother: Mary, In your book, where did Tony and Marie meet at work?
Mary:
In the cafeteria queue.
Sim Brother:
Correct. What did Tony accidentally spill on Marie at the cinemas?
Mary:
Mustard from his hot dog.
Sim Brother:
That's correct. How did Sophie find out Tony was having an affair?
Mary:
She saw a text message to Tony.
Sim Brother:
Correct. How much did Tony pay for the meal at the restaurant?
Mary:
£247
Sim Brother:
That's correct.
Anne:
That's steep!
Mary:
They had some expensive wine.
Sim Brother:
What was the twist of the story?
Mary: Sophie got pregnant, but it turned out Tony wasn't the only one having an affair. Sophie has been having one during the entire story.
Sim Brother: Correct. Well done ladies, you saved £9,000. The prize fund is now £93,000. You may now leave the diary room.
Anne: Are you still going to wake us up at 8?
Sim Brother: Yes.
Mary: Thanks a lot!

8:03AM - Kelly, Liam, Anne and Mary were woken by Sim Brother 3 minutes ago. Today is shrove Tuesday, more informally known as pancake day. To mark the occasion Sim Brother has provided the housemates with a large supply of pancakes.
Mary:
These smell great!
Anne:
I feel sorry for the person who had to cook all them.
Kelly:
If I'm 'onest, I've gone off pancakes. There's always been such a big fuss over them in 'ere.
Liam:
I still love them! I wonder 'ow many pancakes are actually there.
Kelly:
Please don't be sad enough to count them Liam.
Anne:
Counting them would be fun!
Kelly:
Oh my god! Weirdo's. How did your prize fund task go? It was tight 'ow we got woken up by the call too and the boys got to sleep on in their private room.
Anne:
We did well. take a look at the screen.

Throughout the last few days, the plasma screen will display the housemates current prize fund.
Kelly:
Just one lost. You did well girls.
Anne:
We were in there for over five hours you know. We had to read a book each.
Kelly:
Geez, I'm glad I didn't get that challenge.
Mary:
I really needed a tinkle when I was in there, but I didn't dare ask.
Anne:
(Laughs) I'm sure they would of let you.
Liam:
80!
Kelly:
You've counted 80 already!?
Liam:
No, there's 8 on each plate and there's ten plates.
Kelly:
Wow, you do 'ave brains after all! Isn't 80 a bit much for 6 people?
Anne:
It's very over the top.
Kelly:
Well, I suppose I better get my liking for pancakes back.
Liam:
(Laughs).

9:58AM - Kelly, Liam, Anne and Mary have been eating pancakes for almost two hours. Together they have eaten a total of 17 pancakes. Kelly has eaten 7 of them.
Kelly:
I feel sick.
Liam:
I'm not surprised. Considering you'd gone off pancakes a couple of 'ours ago, you seem to be doing pretty well at eating them.
Kelly:
Once you 'ave one, you just want another. There so good.
Mary:
We should probably save some for the boys now.
Kelly:
(Laughs) I don't think they'll quite manage 63 Mary!
Anne:
We can eat them for lunch!
Liam:
Good idea. Let's eat pancakes all day!
Kelly:
Yeah!
Sim Brother:
This is Sim Brother. It's time for Andy and Pete to get up and out of bed, to enjoy the 19th day in the house.
Kelly:
Quick, hide them all, so we can have them all for ourselves.
Anne:
No, I've got an idea. It should be a laugh.
Kelly:
You 'aving a laugh!? Now this I've got to see!

10:12AM - Andy and Pete are just leaving the private bedroom. The other housemates have laid a trail of pancakes through the house.
Andy:
What!?
Pete:
Hey, it's pancake day!
Andy:
Where does the trail go?
Pete:
Let's find out.

Andy: Well, this is the end of the trail.
Pete:
It wasn't a very exciting ending, was it?
Andy:
(Laughs) No, not really. Maybe the others ate the rest of the trail.
Pete:
Yeah, let's go and find them. There probably in the bowling alley.

Mary: Boo!
Pete:
(Screams) Bloody hell!
Andy:
(Screams) Oh, it's you lot. (Laughs).
Kelly:
(Laughs) Did you really not see that coming?
Pete:
No. We thought you were in the bowling alley.
Liam:
It was Anne's idea. Were obviously bored.
Andy:
You got us! What's with all the pancakes though?
Anne:
Sim Brother gave them to us. There were 80 all together.
Kelly:
We've only eaten 17 though, so you guys need to help.
Andy:
I'll defiantly help! They smell great.
Pete:
Me too!

5:13PM - The housemates have eaten a total of 64 pancakes. Two plates of pancakes now remain.
Liam:
I reckon I could all all eight of these.
Kelly:
Liam, your going to make yourself sick!
Pete:
We all had to eat about 13 pancakes each, so don't make yourself ill and force down more. Everyone has to contribute.
Andy:
It's not like this is a task. We don't have to finish these at all!
Sim Brother:
This is Sim Brother. If all pancakes are eaten within the next 10 minutes Sim Brother will add £5,000 to the prize fund.
Anne:
You were saying?
Andy:
Ok, sixteen divided by 6 is..?
Pete:
Two and a bit. If four of us have 3 and the other two have two we can do it!
Kelly:
I'm going to puke.
Pete:
You have two then. Come on, we can do this!

5:24PM
Kelly:
Yes, we've done it! Guys, we've done it!
Liam:

Anne:

Kelly:
Cheer up. The prize funds getting close to £100,000.
Andy:
You can obviously handle all that sugar Kelly. It makes me feel really ill.
Mary:
I think I'm going to sleep it off.
Pete:
The best thing to do would be to exercise.
Anne:
Oh no, I don't feel like churning my stomach contents right now thank you very much!
