It's the nineteenth day in the Sim Brother Couples house.
Yesterday, Naveen, Wilbur and Tammi-Louise were offered individual temptations as part of the Last Temptations of Christmas. Naveen and Wilbur refused their temptations, but Tammi-Louise took hers, meaning £2,000 was removed from the winner's £100,000 prize fund in order for her pet dogs, Trixie and Dixie, to come and stay in the house.
Zsa Zsa is the only housemate up.
Zsa Zsa: I swear to God, I want to beat this machine into the ground. What a useless piece of trash!
Lionel and Dennis are in the bunker.
Lionel: What did you say?
Lionel: You say something? Dennis: No?
Lionel: Thought you did.
Dennis: No. Why are you up?
Lionel: Because I can't sleep anymore and I'm hungry.
Dennis: Well, have Sim Brother asked us to get up yet?
Dennis: I'll sleep in for longer then.
Lionel: You're up now, though?
Dennis: Fuck sake! I'll get up then, shall I?
Lionel: If you want to, love.
Dennis: I didn't get much of a choice, did I!?
Lionel: Of course you did.
Dennis: You turned the light on and lied about me saying something to you!
Sim Brother woke up the housemates in the communal bedroom several minutes ago. Yesterday, Corinne got annoyed when Tammi-Louise accepted her temptation.
Corinne: Are you really checking yourself?
Kalyani: (Laughs). Of course. What's up, babe? You sleep all right? Corinne: Yeah. Not bad. I did wanna ask you something though.
Corinne: Why didn't you say anything about what Tammi did yesterday? Kalyani: Didn't see the point. It just would have caused another argument.
Corinne: So, we say nothing if someone's out of order?
Kalyani: I wasn't going to be a complete bitch after I had just had a chat with her in which I said I'd give her the benefit of the doubt.
Corinne: But why!? She's full of shit, as far as I'm concerned.
Kalyani: Maybe, but because we've got quite well in here for the most part, I said I'd take her word for it.
Corinne: You honestly think she's going to give back a penny she's taken away?
Kalyani; Maybe. Maybe not. All I know is it will reflect badly on her at the end of the day, so what will be, will be.
Corinne: I just think it's totally selfish. I don't agree with it at all.
Kalyani: I hear ya.
Naveen is in the diary room.
Naveen: Hey, big guy.
Sim Brother: Hello, Naveen. How are you this morning? Naveen: Not bad. I'm dreading what you have in store for us later though with this whole temptation stuff. It's caused a lot of drama in here so far, that's for sure.
Sim Brother: How are you feeling about your decision to turn down your temptation?
Naveen: No regrets. I would have loved all that NBA stuff more than I can say, but it's the principle really. It's not worth taking from other people for.
Sim Brother: Would there ever be something you would think would be worth taking money from the prize funds for? Naveen: Maybe. I'm only human at the end of the day, but no point speculating really, is there?
Sim Brother is about to wake up Tammi-Louise and Wilbur.
Wilbur: Oh, man.
Tammi-Louise: Time to get up!? Wilbur: Think so, babe.
Tammi-Louise: Aw. Sim Brother let us lay in a bit more! Sim Brother: This is Sim Brother, would Tammi-Louise and Wilbur please come to the diary room.
Tammi-Louise: YES! It's them, isn't it!? It's my babies! Wilbur: (Laughs). Think so.
Tammi-Louise: Quick, babe! Quick!
Wilbur: I'm coming.
Tammi-Louise: Oh, my babies! I've missed you so much! Wilbur: Aw! Dixie's shaking! Tammi-Louise: This is honestly one of the best moments of my life. (Laughs). I could cry!
Wilbur: It's amazing! So nice to see them!
Tammi-Louise: Mummy will never leave you again! Wilbur: You won't want to go to Barbados when we can, then?
Tammi-Louise: Mummy won't leave you for a long time!
Wilbur: (Laughs). Let's introduce them to the others.
Wilbur: Look who it is, guys! Sasha: Aww! Aisha: So sweet!
Tammi-Louise: I've missed them so much! Aisha: You must be thrilled, Tammi!
Tammi-Louise: Honest to God, this is like the best Christmas present ever!
Sasha: You're own dogs! (Laughs).
Wilbur: Would you girls like a cuddle?
Sasha: I'd prefer one with the dogs, Wilbur, but sure.
Trixie and Dixie are still the talk of the house.
Zsa Zsa: Honestly, Tammi, they are just the sweetest little things.
Tammi-Louise: It doesn't feel real. (Laughs). These are actually my dogs from my home! In the Sim Brother house! Wilbur: I think you'll find they're OUR dogs and it's OUR home.
Tammi-Louise: Fine, it's our home, but these are my dogs.
Wilbur: (Laughs). Of course.
Zsa Zsa: I've always wanted a little dog like these! Or a Pug! Or a Yorkshire Terrier! Max won't hear of it though.
Maximillian: I'm more of a cat person.
Zsa Zsa: Humbug.
Maximillian: Sorry, but I am. Plus, we agreed no pets because we travel so much. It wouldn't be fair.
Zsa Zsa: But we could take a little doggy with us.
Maximillian: Do you not know how expensive that is!?
Zsa Zsa: I WANT A DOG, MAXIMILLIAN!
Maximillian: We'll talk about it when we get home.
Aisha and Corinne are in the snug.
Corinne: I'm fuming.
Corinne: Fucking fuming.
Aisha: You really need to get over it now. What's done is done...
Corinne: If that was me or you who took money TWICE from the prize funds, do you think it would have been as accepted as it is when precious little Tammi-Louise does it!?
Aisha: You seem to have a problem with her.
Corinne: I do. Big time.
Aisha: The dogs are lovely though, Corinne. Really. You should say hello to them. They'll cheer you up.
Corinne: You've said hello to the dogs!? Aisha: (Laughs). Yes. Of course. Why!?
Corinne: I can't believe you've done that! You've basically just said that what Tammi did was OK!
Aisha: By saying hello to two lovely little doggies!? Do you hear yourself!? Corinne: You've betrayed me, as far as I'm concerned.
Aisha: Oh my God. I seriously can't cope with you when you're like this.
Corinne: What do you not understand!? You've completely undermined my argument in front of everyone!
Aisha: Because it's a stupid argument!
Corinne: How can you even say that!? Taking money from the people who make the final is not OK just for two little dogs to come and stay!
Aisha: But it's done now! If it annoys you, why don't you just talk to Tammi like Kalyani has done and get it out of your system!? Not everything has to lead to a grudge and a rivalry!
Corinne: Oh, so now I need to be like Kalyani. Got it.
Aisha: I'm not even going to bother with you when you're like this...
Corinne: Go on, then! Go!
Aisha: Have fun arguing with an empty room, Corinne!
Dennis, Kalyani, Lionel, Sasha, Vaughn, and Wilbur are with Trixie and Dixie in the lounge.
Tammi-Louise: I think Dixie's made a friend there.
Kalyani: Honestly, Tammi, this is the sweetest dog I've ever met in my life.
Sasha: What about Trixie?
Kalyani: Yeah, she's cool, but this dog is just... I can't cope with her. Seriously. I can't.
Tammi-Louise: (Laughs). She is a sweetheart. Very clingy. Trixie's more independent.
Vaughn: We should consider getting a dog when we get out, babe.
Dennis: OK, babe.
Sasha: (Laughs). Get away from my man, you!
Lionel: This dog likes a brush.
Lionel: Uh... Tammi...
Tammi-Louise: Yes, babe?
Lionel: It's having a sniff of my intimate area.
Dennis: Have a wash then you filthy bastard.
Kalyani: Aww. I seriously want to keep this dog.
Tammi-Louise: Heh. Yeah. That's not happening. But enjoy the cuddle.
Lionel: Nooo! Trixie, come back!
Dennis: That's what happens every time a man gets too close to you.
Lionel: Didn't work with you though, did it? Dennis: Sadly not.
Corinne is venting to Sim Brother.
Corinne: I've fucking had it with the people in this house! Honestly, I can't take this anymore! Sim Brother: What seems to be the matter, Corinne?
Corinne: Don't talk like you don't know! You know damn fucking well what I'm upset about! I've just had it in here... I really have! The people in here as fake as fuck! There's one rule for some people and another for everybody else and I am sick to the back teeth of it! I don't want to do this shit anymore!
Sim Brother: Have you tried talking to your fellow housemates about how you feel?
Corinne: What's the point!? They've never given Aisha and I the time of day! Not really! They just decided within the first few days we weren't for them... hence why we're the only couple that's fucking been up twice!
Sim Brother: Corinne...
Corinne: Don't even bother saying anything else! I've literally only come in here to vent! I just... I'm so tired of this! It's exhausting! I actually hope Aisha and I go next! I can't believe I ever thought I could make friends with these people!
Naveen and Vaughn are in the gym.
Naveen: I think I'm fucked, bro.
Vaughn: Why? Has Lionel finally made a move on you? Naveen: (Laughs). No, but he probably will at some point. I'm talking about that dog, ain't I?
Vaughn: Trixie? Kalyani's certainly taken to her.
Naveen: Yeah, which means we'll have to get one when we get out! Vaughn: Haha. Why does that mean you'll have to get one!?
Naveen: Because when Kalyani gets an idea in her head it's practically impossible to try and dissuade her from it.
Vaughn: (Laughs). I don't believe that for a second.
Vaughn: You don't want a dog, then?
Naveen: Nah, man. When we're settled more and have kids, then maybe, but right now I like the fact we travel a lot and just do whatever we like. Getting a dog is a bigger commitment than people think it is.
Vaughn: Absolutely. They're not just for Christmas as the saying goes.
Naveen: Exactly. And as much as I love Kalyani and know she's the one I want to be with for the rest of my life, I still get scared of committing before I'm ready.
Vaughn: Hence why you've yet to propose.
Naveen: Jesus! You're supposed to be on my side here! Vaughn: (Laughs). Sorry, bro.
Trixie is exploring the house.
Dixie and all of the housemates have been gathered in the lounge for the next temptations.
Tammi-Louise: You've literally been hogging my dog for hours.
Kalyani: (Laughs). I'm not even sorry.
Zsa Zsa: I wonder who's going to be facing their temptations today.
Lionel: I face temptation every time Naveen takes a shower.
Naveen: (Laughs). Feel free to come on in.
Dennis: You have my permission.
Kalyani: Mine too. I've found my new soul mate right here.
Tammi-Louise: (Laughs). Fuck sake.
Sim Brother: This is Sim Brother, would Sasha please enter the temptation chamber.
Sasha: Oh, wow. Here we go.
Vaughn: Good luck, babes!
Zsa Zsa: Do your thing!
Sasha: I'm actually shitting it.
Vaughn: You'll be fine.
Tammi-Louise: Aw! There's my baby! Hello, Trixie!
Zsa Zsa: She's looking at you, Corinne. Corinne: Hi.
Aisha: Just say hello! Corinne: I just did?
Aisha: Well, I'll say hello!
Aisha: Hello, darling! You're a lovely little thing, aren't you? Aww...
Zsa Zsa: I swear to God, we're getting one, Max.
Maximillian: (Sighs). If it'll get you to shut up.
Tammi-Louise: Everyone loves my doggies! Wilbur: Our doggies.
Tammi-Louise: Yeah. Sure. Ours.
Sim Brother: Hello, Sasha. Welcome to the temptation chamber.
Sasha: Nice to be here...
Sim Brother: No other housemates can hear this conversation, Sasha.
Sasha: Yep. I know.
Sim Brother: Sim Brother has a temptation for you.
Sim Brother: Sasha, Sim Brother is aware that Vaughn and yourself were forced to cancel a planned holiday to Italy because of the pandemic, and that you lost most of the money you put towards the trip.
Sasha: Yeah. We were devastated.
Sim Brother: Well, Sasha, Sim Brother has a way to make that up to you. How would you like an all expenses two week holiday to the Maldives? Sasha: Our dream destination! (Laughs). You've certainly done your homework.
Sim Brother: Sasha, Sim Brother is willing to give you this holiday for you and Vaughn, but it comes at a cost. If you accept this temptation, £4,500 will be removed from the £50,000 prize fund for the runners-up.
Sim Brother: Sasha, you have thirty seconds to contemplate your decision.
One minute later...
Naveen: How was it?
Sasha: Tough. That was really fucking tough.
Vaughn: You OK, babe?
Sasha: Yeah. I'll be fine. But they know what they're doing...
Lionel: Aw! Hello, little one! I knew you'd come crawling back.
Dennis: (Laughs). We always do.
Wilbur: He seems to like you, Lionel.
Lionel: Well, of course he does. He's only... well... dog.
Sim Brother: This is Sim Brother, would Dennis please enter the temptation chamber.
Dennis: Oh, my.
Wilbur: Good luck!
Dennis: This oughta be good.
Lionel: Lock him in there, Sim Brother!
Sim Brother: Hello, Dennis. Welcome to the temptation chamber.
Dennis: I don't see Hugh Jackman?
Sim Brother: Dennis, no other housemates can hear this conversation.
Dennis: You asking me out? Sim Brother: Dennis, Sim Brother has a temptation for you.
Dennis: I like where this is going.
Sim Brother: Sim Brother is aware that you were born in New Zealand.
Dennis: Yes. That's right.
Sim Brother: A small village in New Zealand.
Dennis: Yes, Sim Brother. You're right.
Sim Brother: Sim Brother understands you have family here you haven't seen since you were a little boy.
Dennis: Oh, you bastards! (Chuckles).
Sim Brother: Dennis, for £2,000 of the fourth placed prize fund which currently stands at £5,000, you and Lionel will be flown to New Zealand to visit your place of birth and finally see those relatives.
Dennis: Hm. Interesting.
Sim Brother: Dennis, Sim Brother will give you thirty seconds to contemplate your decision.
One minute later...
Dennis: Boy, oh boy. Those little shits.
Maximillian: Difficult? Dennis: Yes.
Sasha: Like I said, they know what they're doing.
Vaughn: Whatever anyone decides, we should respect...
Corinne: Uh... really?
Sim Brother: Would Zsa Zsa please enter the temptation chamber.
Aisha: Hope it goes OK.
Maximillian: Good luck, darling.
Zsa Zsa: If it's a dog, I'm going for it.
Maximillian: (Laughs). No doubt.
Zsa Zsa: Hi. Boy, I'm nervous.
Sim Brother: Hello, Zsa Zsa. Welcome to the temptation chamber.
Zsa Zsa: Thanks. Please be nice.
SIm Brother: No other housemates can hear this conversation.
Zsa Zsa: OK...
Sim Brother: Zsa Zsa, Sim Brother has a temptation for you.
Zsa Zsa: Oh, Lord.
Sim Brother: Sim Brother understands you are close to your Aunt Millie.
Zsa Zsa: Please don't...
Sim Brother: Zsa Zsa, Sim Brother is offering you the chance to have a virtual dinner with your Aunt, who will call in all the way from her home in Tucson, Arizona.
Zsa Zsa: Please... stop... oh...
Sim Brother: You can have this virtual dinner this evening, Zsa Zsa, but if you do, it will take away £1,200 from the prize fund for the third place finalists, which currently stands at £25,000.
Zsa Zsa: I can't believe you're doing this. This is so cruel.
Sim Brother: Zsa Zsa, Sim Brother will give you thirty seconds to contemplate your decision.
One minute later...
Zsa Zsa: Bastards. Absolute bastards.
Aisha: Are you OK?
Zsa Zsa: Not really.
Maximillian: It's all a game, my dear. Don't let them get to you.
Lionel: Well, this is awkward.
Vaughn: Come on, Sim Brother, let's get this over with.
Naveen: Everyone remain calm, OK? (Laughs).
Sim Brother: Sasha was offered the chance to go on an all expenses trip to the Maldives with Vaughn.
Vaughn: Oh, wow.
Tammi-Louise: That's incredible.
Sim Brother: Had she accepted the temptation, it would have removed £4,500 from the prize fund for the runners-up.
Sim Brother: Sasha resisted the temptation.
Corinne: Well done, Sasha.
Sasha: Wasn't easy. (Laughs).
Sim Brother: Dennis was offered a trip to New Zealand for himself and Lionel to visit his place of birth and relatives he hasn't seen since he was a boy.
Lionel: Oh, those arseholes! Dennis: Yeah. Bit mean. (Laughs).
Sasha: Aw! I didn't know you were from New Zealand, Dennis.
Dennis: Yeah. Never been back. It's been a dream to go back.
Tammi-Louise: Then I hope you took it! Sim Brother: If Dennis accepted the temptation, it would have taken £2,000 from the prize fund for the fourth placed finalists. Dennis resisted the temptation.
Tammi-Louise: Aw, babe.
Dennis: It was the right thing to do.
Sim Brother: Zsa Zsa was offered the chance to have a virtual dinner date with her Aunt Millie from Arizona.
Maximillian: Oh, wow.
Kalyani: That's lovely.
Zsa Zsa: I'm furious.
Zsa Zsa: That they'd use my Aunt as part of this stupid game.
Sim Brother: Had Zsa Zsa accepted the temptation it would have removed £1,200 from the prize fund for third place.
Sasha: That's not too bad.
Sim Brother: Zsa Zsa resisted the temptation.
Sim Brother: The Last Temptations of Christmas will return tomorrow. Housemates are now free to leave the lounge.
Zsa Zsa: Disgusting, Sim Brother! Disgusting!
Vaughn: Oh, Zsa Zsa. Don't be upset.
Zsa Zsa: Sorry, but I am!
Sasha: Should I go after her?
Maximillian: Best to let her calm down.
Tammi-Louise: She should have taken it.
Lionel: I think so, too.
Corinne: Oh, will you, shut the fuck up already with that, Tammi!?
WIlbur: Oh, here we go.
Tammi-Louise: Excuse me!?
Tammi-Louise: What is your problem!?
Corinne: You're my problem! How many times today do you want to say that people should have stolen from the prize funds?
Tammi-Louise: As many times as I like because it's my opinion! Corinne: Well, clearly everyone else in here isn't as selfish as you are!
Tammi-Louise: Selfish!? Really!? I wouldn't begrudge anyone in here taking the chance to get themselves a treat!
Corinne: At the expense of the people who make the final!?
Tammi-Louise: We didn't even know there was a prize fund for anyone other than the winners!
Corinne: But now we do but I guess you don't care about that, do you!?
Tammi-Louise: If people are given the opportunity in here to fulfil a dream or get something amazing then I think they should!
Corinne: Because you're selfish and spoilt and get whatever you like in life at the expense of everyone else anyway!
Tammi-Louise: Excuse me!?
Corinne: You heard me just fine!
Aisha: I can't be bothered to listen to this...
Tammi-Louise: I tell you what, for the rest of our time in here, you need to keep the fuck away from me! You're a fucking nasty piece of work! You just think the worst in everyone all the time! Corinne: When it's people like you, yeah, I do! You're disgusting! Tammi-Louise: Fuck off, Corinne! You're a dickhead!
Corinne: And you'e a spoilt little bitch!
Maximillian: That's enough now, girls!
Vaughn: Yeah. Come on now.
Tammi-Louise: She started it! Wilbur: Yes, but that'll do now, babe.
Kalyani: Oh... Dixie just burped. (Laughs).
Aisha has come to the diary room.
Aisha: Part of me just wants to go now. I've had enough.
Sim Brother: What seems to be the matter, Aisha?
Aisha: I thought things were getting better in here but they're clearly not. Corinne she just... she's a very principled person and believes in her convictions and she's letting this twist get the better of her when she should rise above it. Not everything has to be so serious. And now I think she's definitely gone too far and they'll be too much water under the bridge to recover from this, particularly when it comes to Tammi-Louise and Wilbur.
Sim Brother: Do you not think you could patch things up when things calm down?
Aisha: Probably not. I love Corinne more than I can put into words, but she really makes things difficult when she loses her temper.
Aisha: Oh. Hi, Max.
Maximillian: Are you all right, sweetheart?
Aisha: Just so fed up. I really am. I want to be able to defend Corinne, but how can I!?
Maximillian: Give me a hug.
Maximillian: We're here for you, OK?
Aisha: Thank you.
Maximillian: It'll blow over. I promise.
Aisha: I hope so.
Kalyani and Tammi-Louise are trying to encourage Trixie and Dixie to do their business.
Kalyani: There we go! We have lift-off!
Tammi-Louise: (Laughs). There we go.
Kalyani: She listens to me. Hey, wait a minute...
Tammi-Louise: (Laughs). I wondered when you'd catch on.
Kalyani: Dixie has a penis! Tammi-Louise: Yes, she's technically male.
Kalyani: (Laughs). What the hell!?
Tammi-Louise: Way to go, Trixie!
Kalyani: Why do you refer to Dixie as a 'she' then?
Tammi-Louise: We thought she was for the first few days and then it just sort of stuff. She has a female energy, if you know what I mean?
Kalyani: (Laughs). Sure.
Tammi-Louise: Plus, she likes male dogs.
Kalyani: She does?
Tammi-Louise: Oh, yeah. She's all over them at the park.
Kalyani: Reminds me of Lionel.
Tammi-Louise: Ha! That's about right.
Kalyani: They don't seem eager to explore the garden much.
Tammi-Louise: They would if it was warmer, but they get so cold when it's like this. I can barely get them away from blankets and clothes during the winter. C'mon, girls, c'mon back.
Kalyani: I think Dixie would quite like to sleep with me tonight.
Tammi-Louise: Yeah. That's not happening.
Kalyani: (Laughs). Worth a shot.
Vaughn and Zsa Zsa are in the bathroom.
Vaughn: You OK, babe?
Zsa Zsa: Not really.
Vaughn: You've been really quiet since earlier.
Zsa Zsa: Well, I'm furious to be honest.
Vaughn: Give me a cuddle.
Vaughn: Don't let them get to you. It's what they want.
Zsa Zsa: I'm all for playing the game, but my Aunt was only cleared of cancer until the spring.
Vaughn: Oh, wow. I had no idea.
Zsa Zsa: And because she's obviously been vulnerable still after her chemo, she's had to isolate so I've barely seen her at all this year.
Vaughn: Of course. That's awful. I'm sorry. But remember she's clearly doing well and keeping safe. She beat the fucker!
Zsa Zsa: Absolutely, but I'm just annoyed they used her as part of the task. Doesn't sit right with me.
Vaughn: I get that.
The housemates are heading to bed.
Maximillian: You OK, darling?
Zsa Zsa: Nice of you to finally ask.
Maximillian: Don't be like that, honey. At home you say it's best to leave you when you're upset.
Zsa Zsa: Because you're normally the one who's upset me! Maximllian: Zsa Zsa...
Zsa Zsa: I just want to sleep, please.
Maximillian: OK. Love you.
Kalyani: Aw. They don't seem to want to settle.
Tammi-Louise: (Laughs). They'll be fine as soon as I get into bed.
Kalyani: You sure?
Tammi-Louise: And as soon as you leave. (Laughs).
