The application is only for your beauty/geek. And if you are doing both, you need seperate shots.
daltonism-No. Sorry. Male can't be the beauties yet. I'm thinking about doing that for next season.
msp teen No, photoshop isn't required.
Wow! A lot of peopel are interested in this contest! Yay! Can't wait to see your apps.
BTW, Claire should be able to download in the contest sim sharing thread. That way, you can do whatever you want with her for you applications. Also, you may need Claire further into the contest.

Answer these questions:

What were you considered in High School?

In high-school I was considered the one who everyone loved. I was popular, yet I played sport and I was nice to the nerds. So I had a lot of friends in many different places.

What is your occupation?

At the moment I am working as a baby-sitter/cleaner while I go through my final year of Uni. Then I will get a better job.

What makes you a Beauty/Geek?

Well I think that when people say beauty is only skin deep they're wrong. I am beautiful on the inside (I know sounds up myself) because I don't look at people for who they hang with/what they wear etc. and I would like to prove to all the fake 'beauties' that you can be in love/friends with a nerd/geek.

Questions

What were you considered in High School?
In highschool is was considered to be the biggest flirt. I had beauty and brains and always seemed to tease the guys. Most of my mates were male, I get along with them better. I was sports freak as well.

What is your occupation?
I finished university last year and now i'm doing my internship at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. However i'm a part-time model too.

What makes you a Beauty?
My personality; bubbly, colourful, bright, energetic, easy to approach. When I look at people, I look at their heart not their appearances. My face is unique and pretty, I don't have to cake on heaps of make up to be beautiful either.

Questions

What were you considered in High School?
Well with my fellow "Library Gang" I was considered a brainiac and computer wiz. Although the rest of the school labled me as a nerd. At highschool I would usually be found at the library, the chess club, the comic club or with the maths interstate team.

What is your occupation?
I am currently working in a laboratory as a chemist.

What makes you a Geek?
Im antisocial, and can't live with computers. I have a passion for reading books, mostly science fiction and fantasy. I am an intelligent, organised and sensitive person.

KatrineW

"Ugh, a girl is talking to me!"


What were you considered in high school?
I was the friendly go-to guy when the other students had problems with computers or needed help with math. I was part of the Nerd-Herd (and still am). I was also in the AV group because I love both movies and movietechs.

What is your occupation?
I am one of the tech-guys in a consumer electronics store. I help people with their problems and in return they talk to me. Other than that I have a website about computer games, that I work on in my spare time.

What makes you a geek?
I think it's pretty obvious. I see myself as a great guy, but the girls don't. Apparently they can't find the beauty of 1s and 0s. And what's the deal with sports? I'm all for extreme sports like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and stuff, but only on consoles. Oh and not many people find it interesting that I can quote every line from The Matrix.

why don't you try cutting the number from 16 to 10 beauties and ten geeks? then if there are more applicants we can try to even out the number or so... you can also close apps for the beauties when the list fills up, and ask for geeks only to even the number between them :)

I'll be applying a geek FYI :) so save my spot on the geek list!

Answer these questions:
What were you considered in High School?
I was really involved in a lot of different things... I played tuba in the band, I was treasurer for Student Council, I was a member of the Library Aids/AV Team, plus I was an active participant in Quiz Bowl and Math Team. I was your all around... dork.
What is your occupation?
I'm a reference librarian at NASA in Cleveland.
What makes you a Beauty/Geek?
I know who shot first. I know the meaning of life is 42. I can recite the entire Periodic Table of Elements... backwards. I attend every Comic-Con I can afford to get to. I really identify with Peter Parker... and I'm looking for my Mary Jane. I was never popular. I'm awkward around new people. I'd rather spend my time playing Dungeons & Dragons Online instead of going to a club. I am your textbook nerd. And honestly, I'm fine with that.

What were you considered in High School?
I was considered as your all-american computer dork. If a jock had a problem with their laptop or cellphone, they'd come to me to fix it... and then pound me for not doing it quick enough.

What is your occupation?
I'm an Information Technology technician for a major law firm here in Seattle.

What makes you a Geek?
Well I never have had an ounce of alcohol in my life. I was picked on from the moment I set foot in pre-school because of my glasses, packed lunches and strange (to them) clothes. I'm ok with it really, I would prefer a night online, or experimenting with my chem set or a nice morning disasembling my laptop instead of a night out partying and having a hangover the next morning. It also means more extra free time doing my research on planet Mumbazi and their fascinating race. Aliens are out there, I just know it!
Sometimes I do wish I could get myself out there and meet a girl, but for some reason I always end up going back to my own little world.

What is your occupation?
I'm a semi regular platform jumper.

What makes you a Beauty/Geek?
Well... the hair, clothes, glasses, game interests...that pretty much describes it.

Name: David Kohanim
Age: 32
Location: New York, New York

What were you considered in High School? I was consider a geek, I was socially out casted completely for my first several years of my private school life because of being a geek and being the only Jewish kid at the school didn't help much either. Then at my next school, it was a all Jewish boarding school and so I was still a geek because of my brains but I did make good friends there and I also met my wife there.
What is your occupation?
I help run a series of different family businesses around America and Israel with my father.
What makes you a Beauty/Geek?
What makes myself a geek is my intelligence, my boldness, my ability to take things apart such as a radio or my new plasma t.v. and be able to put them back together, then also my love for star wars and overall my need for knowledge and success.

You can pick any random shirt. But it only has to be a custom shirt or maxis shirt. Yes, you'd send them the link of the shirt. and then they'll take a picture of their beauty wearing the shirt with an expression on her face. *should add that to the round 1. must of forgot that. : ]**
Then your partner should send you the picture and post that as your round 1. Hope this helps.

Studying Sewing
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c192/kanyewest_fan1/snapshot_33e4757f_73f46beb.jpg
Gee... Sewing is one thing I never actually studied. I am kind of regretting that for sure now. I never had to sew or learn how to do it in my life! If I had a ripped pants or a shirt I always just got a new one.

Sewing
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c192/kanyewest_fan1/snapshot_33e4757f_f3f46a81.jpg
You know it sure seemed quite easy in all the books I read but it was probably as hard as passing my 8th grade P.E. class. I see women sewing and junk for fun and they are so good at it kind of makes me wonder just a bit why they find this fun. But after awhile it was actually quite enjoying! This is certainly a new acquired skill that I hope I will use in the future(but probably not though).

When I heard i had to study I made my way towards my uncles house and studied the whole Chess board next to his pool. While looking at it I also read the instructions to the game (which was located near the pieces). Who knew it was so easy? And I only thought Nerds were smart enough to be able to play.


CHECK AND MATE!

The match was set in some major nerd feeding ground. I was nervous because I felt so awkward having them all stare at me, hoping i would fall and fail this task. But to all their and my surprise I got to say the final words "Check Mate!"

right so to begin with i had to learn how to play chess :confused: i've never played it in my life. never plan to again. i've always found it dull and tedious however when i found out i was actually quite good at it i enjoyed it more.

Hi!
I'm terribly sorry, but I have to pull out of the "Beauty and the Geek competition. I have recently experienced a close friend's death and I had my yearly exams pushed up closer than I expected. Sorry to cause any inconvenience.

I had an idea, since I had a beauty and geek enter, my beauty's partner could become my geek's partner. Once again, sorry and I hope everyone can continue to enjoy this competition.

I, of course, began my quest of making my partner, Dollie, a beautiful shirt by reading up on the latest in women's fashions. Once I started delving deeper into the modern fashion world, I was shocked at how much skin women show. I prefer my lady to be much more modest. But I figured I needed to try and give Dollie a shirt she would like, so I compromised on my design.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/sew.jpg

I was confused by the sewing machine they gave me. I can usually figure out and piece of technology. But I had never used a machine like this before. I usually sew my costumes for D&D and the Conventions by hand. I do that to keep the garments looking authentic. But I gave this Simger Machine my best shot.

This ended up being the final result...

By the look on her face, I think she really loved it!

I'm not mad or anything but you tell people not to drop out because not being enough geeks, but what are we susposed to do, I had no choice, this contest wasnt fair to me from the beginning, the only advice I can give is if next time more beatys then geeks join, you need to elminate some beautys in a fair way like other contests would do.

I never thought it would be so difficult to pick colors. Luckly the store owner gave me a color guide, so I could see all the colors I liked next to each other at the same time. How cool is that!

This...picture...is heavy!!!!!!!!! Help ME!! Oh lord It felt like I was holding the picture forever. I never thought it was that heavy. Well i had the people in the store to deliver so....yeah. I should ahve told them to hang it. No wounder they looked at me wierd we I told them that I would hang it.

SO here is the finished project. I like the dark greens so I just went with them. I hope it isn't to green.Hummmmm......

Optional

Well I have to say I love it. It reminds me of being in nature with all the green except I'll be inside. Lots of mind boggaling on matching colors but it was worth it.

I have only been to the Library a couple of times. I loved the decor it was so sophisticated. But then I saw the huge pile of books I had to put away and I almost died >_<

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd243/heidi_aston/frustrated.jpg
After a while I started getting hot and bothered. I got so frustrated about putting the books back and how long it was taking.

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd243/heidi_aston/puttingaway.jpg
I told myself that I need to stop being stupid and get on with the job. I found it very relaxing, strangely enough. I had it done in no time.

Well well well. Decorate a room for my partner? No problem.

Upon hearing what this round was going to consist of, I decided my safest bet would be to go to one of those home stores... like Linens & Sims, or Bed Sim & Beyond. But then I thought that all of the guys would be doing that. I needed something original and unique, just like my partner... so I went to Simkea instead.

I wondered the store for what seemed like hours, not finding what I had in mind for Dollie. Dollie isn't ultra modern. She's quite girly and frilly. This wasn't the place. But I thought I had to buy something here. I couldn't have this trip be a total loss. So I headed over to the pottery department.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/what.jpg

No. No. No. This was all wrong. How could they only have one style of decor? What was I doing here?

So I gave up in Simkea. I admitted defeat and headed over to JC Simmey's and found just what I was looking for.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/teddybear.jpg

All girls like teddy bears, right? Place it right on the fluffy yellow linens. Perfect. Now Mr. Bear, you stay right there.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/finishedroom.jpg

Wonderful, isn't it. I hope Dollie is as happy with it as I am. If I was a girl, I would definitely be happy with a room like this. Plush and inviting. A room perfect for any girl with any taste.

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i168/sims2contest1981/confessional.jpg

Do I like what I did with this room? Isn't it obvious? I'll clearly be the winner. It's not cluttered and full of junk. It's feminine and soft. That modern junk is for the birds. This is how a woman SHOULD want her room. Any other way would be questionable.

Decorating a room was actually easier than I thought.

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd243/heidi_aston/whichone.jpg
I wanted to really impress my partner, so I was going to give it my all. Choosing the colours was easy too, I decided to go for blue because in my mind 'if in doubt go with blue' ^_^

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd243/heidi_aston/decorating.jpg
I started to decorated the room and it was going so well. I've had to decorate rooms before so this bit was alright. I was doing much better in this task than the last.

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd243/heidi_aston/room.jpg
Well I finished the room without any problems.

http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd243/heidi_aston/Imhappy.jpg
Confessional: Do you like what you did with your room?
I really do like this room. I'm really proud of it. I thought it was going to be a nightmare trying to get the right colours and match them with furniture, but it was a breezy. Cant wait to go back and redecorate my place.

Oh, that's too bad tyana. I understand though.
The room isn't for anyone. And I did watch the show but I didn't mean to have it the exact same way they did it.

I can't say for sure, but the round hasn't even officially ended (as far as I know). But if the round post is anything to go by, lovelybones will close the round and PM the judges sometime today. Scores would be in in 12-36 hours and then posted less than 12 hours after that. So sometime tomorrow or the day after. Probably. As I said, I don't know anything for 100% sure.

I am so sorry I haven't participated in this round. My grandfather has been diagnosed with lung cancer, so I went to see him and the rest of my family. Sorry I did not write or anything, but I just didn't think about it.

Sorry to my partners aswell.

If there are no eliminations this round, I am more than happy to continue in this contest, if that is okay?

I'm really sorry what's happened to your grandfather but if you don't show up for a round, then you can't particapate in the next one. And I'm sorry again about your grandfather.

lovelybones: that is okay, rules are rules. Thank you for your sympathy though. I hope you guys can figure out how to pair up the rest of the contenders, so that this does not affect my previous partners. Have fun in the rest of the contest :-)

I will hopefully have round 3 up tonight. I have loads of homework to do. Everyone can do this round because there will not be any eliminations since there have been so many drop outs.

That's true. Well, I'll tell bP that this contest will be closed. I'm really sorry guys. And I know for sure that there will NOT be a season 2.

Contestants are required to finish a contest once they start one (either compete until the end or compete until eliminated). Dropping out without a reason gets you into trouble, and simply not submitting an entry, with no word to the contest host as to whether you are still planning on competing, gets you into even more trouble.

If you choose to simply stop competing without telling someone involved with the contest, you will be put on contest restriction. This means you may be unable to host, judge and/or participate in contests on this site. It is completely unacceptable to drop with no reason, inconvenient to the host and other contestants and just plain rude. Its also not fair to the host and other contestants who spend a lot of time and effort writing up rounds or taking pictures.

If you, as a contestant, feel as though a contest host isnt doing their "job" with their contest, it is your responsibility to PM me as soon as possible (this includes noticing that there are a lot of people dropping out). I can talk to the contest host to see whats up and come up with a solution to any problems there may be with the contest.

:locked Contest closed as per host request and insufficient participants.
