Jessica: Why should I do you a favor? You've been doing this blog for over a year, and you haven't even gotten to my hood yet!
Me: Okay, I get it that some of you are displeased with me. But will you please help me?
Me: Thank you, Natasha. Well, ladies, I've been struggling with the game. I fire it up, but I'm not inspired. I love you guys, and I want to keep telling your story, but I need a diversion to get the juices flowing again.
Me: In my world, there is a television program called "The Bachelor." A group of lovely ladies such as yourselves meet a handsome, successful, eligible young man. He goes on a series of dates with you, and at the end he selects the woman that has captivated him the most.
Jessica: You mean I would have to fight with these three broads over one guy?
Me: Well, actually, you would be fighting with six other broads. I have selected you four, and my readers are going to choose the other three contestants.
Natasha: Why on SimEarth would we want to do this?
Me: Because...it would be fun...er, for me. And the lucky girl might just find her husband.
Cassandra: Wait, did you say "husband?"
Jessica, Natasha, and Chloe: CASS!
Me: I did indeed, Cassandra, our Bachelor may choose to propose to his lady at the end. And if he does, I promise to throw you a big wedding.
Cassandra: Where do I sign?
That's right, readers. We're doing "The Bachelor" Sim-Style, and you get to pick the final three contestants. See the poll in the sidebar. The top three vote-getters will join Cassandra, Chloe, Jessica, and Natasha in the Bachelorette pad. Voting ends at 11:59 PM EST on Friday, January 22nd, 2010 .
