Somebody To Love: Bachelor in Paradise – The Elusive Bachelor

Sul Sul! This is Roxanna Llama-Llama reporting to you LIVE from the tropical island of Sulani. Today is the day you’ve all been waiting for. Yes! It’s an Interview with the Bachelor himself.  Rick Goengeter. Mr. Single. Mr. Available. Mr. Missing In Action. Um, yeah. There’s a slight problem. We haven’t found him yet.

Oh, my word! Now, don’t go getting your panties all twisted up. As you know, I, Roxanna Llama Llama, am on the case and he WILL be found.

on the phone

You see, the producers were a bit vague when they told me about Rick Goengeter and they left this scratchy type voicemail message. You know one of those messages where you’re straining to hear what they’re saying and just at the part you need the most, the signal cuts out for a second. You’ve had that happen, right? Most annoying thing in the sim universe. So, picture this. There I am, my ear pressed to the phone, straining to hear this message, and all I can hear is static “….the…island” static. Ok, so what does that mean? Heck, there are a few islands in the simworld, like the Island in Windenberg, and Deadgrass Isle in Brindleton Bay. He could be from anywhere. Well, I called, texted, left messages for the producers…you name it, I did it. But did I get a message back? Nada.

So, how am I supposed to do a background story on our Bachelor with zilch information? Well, those who know me, know that I, Roxanna Llama-Llama am the greatest researcher in the simworld. Plus, I have contacts. Yeah, saves a lot of headaches when you have contacts.

So, I called my buddy, Mortimer Goth, over in Willow Creek, and asked him if he knew a sim named Rick Goengeter. You see, Morty and I go way back, when there was some gossip going around that his wife, Bella, and Don Lothario were a thing and how she got abducted by aliens. Ah…so, you read my article? Well, I disproved that conspiracy theory and Morty is forever grateful. Plus the man is like the backbone of the simworld. Knows everyone. He hadn’t heard of Rick Goengeter, but was going to call his good friend, Bjorn Bjergsen, over on The Island of Windenberg. I mean it sounded good. Goengeter sounded like an “old world” name. But no sooner was I thinking this than I get a text message from Morty that it’s a no go there.

mjorn and claraBut, Bjorn’s wife, Clara, knows Brant Hecking in Brindleton Bay…did a birthday catering event for their dog, Rosie’s birthday. So she was going to text him. And just as I was getting hopeful again, I get another text message. Nope again.

And so I’ve been at it all day, googling, reading bits and pieces of articles, and starting to pull my hair out because I can’t find anything on this guy. I mean my brain is in serious overload mode. So, I came up with this theory. Maybe Rick Goengeter is not his real name! Yes, maybe Rick is like a secret agent, some 007 secret agent spy. Or maybe he’s hiding out from the mob and is in a witness protection program or something. It would make perfect sense, don’t ya think?

So, I’m sitting there with my head in my hands, and Benny walks in. He didn’t want to disturb me with all this investigative work I had going on, so he told me he was going to take some snorkeling lessons at the beach. Anyway, he sees me there and I tell him my dilemma and he asks if I had spoken to the locals yet. Duh! The man is a GENIUS! I had been so wrapped up trying to figure out where in the simworld this “island” was that Rick was from, that I plum forgot that we were already on an island. Sulani.

So, after freshening up, we head over to The Sand Bar for a drink. Ok, well, maybe it was a few rounds of drinks. Heck, it had been a hard day. So, I’m ordering another drink and the bartender, Mahu Kawai, asks if there is anything else he can get for me. So, I start laughing and say, “Yeah! You can get me some information on Rick Goengeter.” I fully expect him to say that he never heard of him, but he surprises me and says, “Oh, sure, Rick. Yeah, yeah, I know the guy. He’s a friend of mine. Nice guy. He lives over on the island.”

So, I may have had a few too many fizzy fruity drinks, but I suddenly perk up and look him sort of squarely in the eye and ask, “What island?”

“Oh, over on Mua Pel’am,” he said gesturing with his hand as if giving directions.

“That island? The one with the chocolate lava cake volcano spewing hot fireballs island?” I just knew before he said it that I was NOT going to like his answer.

“Oh, yeah, that’s the one. He’s on the sandy islet called Key Point just across from the mainland.” Mahu laughed cheerfully as he turned and waited on another customer.

Benny and I looked at each other and practically ran outta there. And wouldn’t you know it, just as we’re heading to the water taxis my cell phone pings with an incoming text message. Yes, you guessed right. It’s from the producers telling me what I already knew. I think I did an eye-roll at Benny.

When we get to the water taxi area, it’s closed, so it will have to wait until morning to head to the island. But, Benny thinks that heading out in the morning is better anyway for photo ops. I agree and figure that maybe I can squeeze in a bit of research on Mua Pel’am before bed.

But, the important thing is that I, Roxanna Llama Llama, have found our elusive Bachelor!  Wikki Wikki Wii from Sulani!

Author’s Notes:

Wow, it’s a good thing that Roxanna found out where our elusive bachelor was. But isn’t it rather strange that even after googling his name, nothing came up for him? He really is a mystery man. Romantic mystery man, but still a mystery man.

Rick’s background story is rather detailed, so this had to be done in two parts.

Credits:

I decided to use one of the renovated versions of The Sand Bar, and lilsimsie’s version seemed a perfect fit.

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting. There are 2 more chapters before the casting call ends. In the next chapter, Roxanna & Benny will head to the island, and yes, Rick will defintely be there and we will meet and find out his background. Then the following chapter will be a kind of “twist” before we start the actual challenge. I’m pretty excited about it – oh, I’m starting to sound like Roxanna! hehehe
