The Sims Is Getting A Reality Show Because...IDK

In not world-burning but still 'Alright 2020, calm it down" news, EA Games, Buzzfeed, and TBS are teaming up to make "Spark'd", a reality-based competition that gives players the chance to create Sims and their storylines and...present them to a panel of judges?

Yeah.


12 players will team up in groups of three and will be judged on the strength of their character design, the awe-inspiring-ness of their build (have yall seen some of these builders tho?), and the drama of their plot (not sure how I feel about using passing relatives as a plot device in a Sims contest but it is what it be). No word if teen pregnancy or swimming pool deaths will have their own categories.

The first group appears to be members of EA's Game Changers program - a "community-led" initiative by EA for popular LPs in the Sim Player community. Familiar faces include Plumbella and StephOSims. The judge also seems to be some recognizable folks, including Kelsey of the Buzzfeed Sims Multiplayer and 100 Baby Challenge fame.

The show will premiere on TBS on July 17th, and will (I assume cause there isn't any info on the site??) be on Buzzfeed's Multiplayer YT Channel thereafter. The winning team will be awarded $100,000 (lol kill me)

The Sims series has rocketed in popularity in the last recent years on YT due to an influx of players, spearheaded by the rocky success of The Sims 4. OP wonders if she can get her 'Bobo the Foo" costume properly fitted for Quarantined Halloween because she's been playing this game for 10 years for free.

Personally, OP feels this is the only Sims video content anyone ever needs tbh -
