I don't know how many of you guys have seen the new reality show, Farmer Wants a Wife, on the CW, but I have, and I thought it would make a great challenge and I've made up a set of rules for it. Basically, a group of girls compete to be the Farmer's Wife.

You'll need Sims Seasons and Sims Nightlife for this to work.


Step one: Make a farmer. This can be a man or woman, I've chosen man.
Step two: Give your farmer three motherlodes, and build him a house. It should have the following:
  • Seven beds
  • An orchard large enough for all the sims to work at once in it
  • A green house (again, large enough for all sims to work in it)
  • A fishing pond
NOTE: you will also need things like bookcases, chessboards, and either a pool or exercise equipment.

Step three: create seven contestant sims, and move them in one by one.


See who the Farmer is most compatible with. At the start of day 1, have your Farmer do two chats and a "Check Sim Out" with each contestant Sim. At 6 PM (or whenever your Farmer has done two chats and a "Check Sim Out" with each contestant Sim), someone must go! Here's how to figure it out.

Add each contestant's relationship score (from the Farmer's point of view) PLUS five points for each lightning bolt. The Sim with the lowest score leaves!


A Farmer's wife has to be resourceful, and good in the outdoors. When the contestant Sims wake up, have them work in the garden all at once. Tell them all to Tend the orchard and the garden. If they stop tending, you can't make them go back and tend some more.

Later in the day, have all contestants go fishing, at the same time, in the pond. Again, if they walk away, you can't make them go back. Whoever has the most fish by 6 PM cannot be eliminated.

Tally the scores for Day Two like this:

Relationship score (from the Farmer's point of view) PLUS 10 points for each lightning bolt PLUS 5 points for each boot caught and 10 points for each fish caught. The person with the lowest score leaves.


A Farmer's wife must be a good cook! In the morning, same as Day Two, have your contestant Sims tend the garden and orchard. After that, make sure that everyone's needs are at about the same level, and have each contestant Sim study Cooking. If they say they are not in the mood or won't do it, you can't make them! If they study only for a little while and then get up, you can't make them go back.

Have your Farmer do one share interests and one gossip with each Sim.

At the end of the day tally scores like this: Relationship score PLUS 5 points for each Cooking point PLUS 10 points for each lightning bolt.

NOTE: by now your Farmer might be Best Friends or have a Crush on some of your contestant Sims. Give them 10 points for a crush (only if the FARMER has a crush) and 20 points if they're Best Friends. The person with the lowest score goes home.


A Farmer's wife has to be pretty clean. Have your remaining contestant Sims study cleaning. Same as the cooking challenge. In the afternoon, have the Farmer form a casual group with all the remaining Sims and go on a group date (it must be somewhere where they can eat a meal together).

At the end of the day, tally the points: Relationship PLUS 5 points for each Cooking Point PLUS 10 points for a crush, 20 points for Best Friends, and 10 points per lightning bolt.


A Farmer's wife has to be SMART: Have all contestant Sims sit down at their own chessboard, until 6 PM or until they all get up and leave. Get everyone's needs level up to about the same place and have them all go out for a group date--dancing!

When they get home, tally the points: Relationship PLUS 5 points for each Logic Point PLUS 10 points for a crush, 20 points for Best Friends, and 10 points per lightning bolt. If your Farmer Sim is in love with any contestant Sim, they get 50 extra points.


Your Sim will go on a Private Date/Outing with each of the two remaining contestant Sims. It's imperative that both contestant Sims do not go at once, or else you'll have a lot of angry Sims on your hands.

On the date attempt flirting and kissing. A kiss is 30 points, and a makeout is 50. A woohoo is 100. If your Sim rejects any of these, you will subtract 10 points from the final score.

Final scoring goes like this.

Farmer's Relationship score PLUS Contestant's relationship score
Then add up all the points your contestant Sim has gleaned: 10 points per point
Then give 10 points for each lightning bolt.
10 points for a crush
20 points for Best Friends
50 points for in Love

Then add the score for the Final Date: kisses, flirts, woohoos.
Whoever has the highest wins, and gets the Farmer, his house, the money, etc.

Happy playing! I'm open to any suggestions to make this better.

I'll post my challenge in another post!

That's pretty fabulous. I'll have to remove my perfect gardens hack for that one! ;D
May. 15th, 2008 07:52 pm (UTC)
OMG I want that hack.

I'm 99.7% sure that it's part of the TwoJeffs Director's Cut. :)
May. 15th, 2008 07:34 pm (UTC)
That actually sounds kind of fun!

Haha maybe it could even be used if someone wanted to really complicate the life of one of their legacy heirs :D

Even though I've never seen the show, this challenge sounds interesting. Day 3 could prove interesting if none of the contestants has earned any cooking points.
May. 15th, 2008 07:51 pm (UTC)
I'm on Day Four now and actually some of the leaders have fallen because they wouldn't stay and study. Some of the weaklings really buckled down and now they're in the lead.
May. 15th, 2008 07:51 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, I didn't think of that. I was thinking of using the winning pair to start a legacy.
May. 15th, 2008 11:01 pm (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing :D

Sounds like a fun challenge too! :-)

Neat twist on the bachelor/ette type challenges.

I like fast challenges like this.
May. 15th, 2008 08:31 pm (UTC)
I've never watched the show (I've seen the ads) but this sounds like a neat challenge. I think I'll give it a try once my Fate Challenge is done!
May. 16th, 2008 12:37 am (UTC)
What's the Fate Challenge? I've never heard of it, and Google was no help. It souds interesting!
May. 16th, 2008 12:48 pm (UTC)
It's just a challenge a friend of mine and I made up. It's essentially similar to a regular Legacy Challenge, but Sims can only marry NPCs (not Townies) and you don't find out which one until the heir reaches teen (and the heir is always the first born). It's long though - I'm on Gen 16 with 3 more NPCs to go. I think we wrote up rules for it once - I can post them if you're really interested. :)
May. 16th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC)
I would love to see the rules, if you don't mind. This sounds fun!
May. 15th, 2008 09:00 pm (UTC)
I like that it's a fast challenge.
May. 16th, 2008 12:36 am (UTC)
This has the potential to be a lot of fun... I think I'll be trying this one out! I like that it's a short one.
May. 16th, 2008 12:57 am (UTC)
This sounds like a lot of fun
May. 18th, 2008 02:02 pm (UTC)
ditto what everyone else said. This challenge sounds really fun!

Thank you so much. I finished at 1:30 this morning. I hope you don't mind if I make a small scoring suggestion.

In the last elimination you have to add up all the points the wannabe gained while living on the farm. Maybe we should add some points for Fishing & Gardening talent badges as well? Something like 5-points for bronze and 10 for silver, etc.? Just a thought.

Thanks again for such a fun and quick challenge.
