3.00PM - George and Lucy were both called to the diary rooms. Once seated, the Duel began.
Sim Brother (ar) - "Welcome to the 3rd Duel of Minds. Neither of you can hear the other's reply, although the rest of the house can. The Winner will gain a place in the Rich House. The Loser will gain a place in the Poor House. Let's start the Duel of Minds."
"Question 1 - In what year was the Simerican Declaration of Independence?"
Both housemates correctly answered "1776".

Both housemates correctly answered "Eire" or "The Republic of Ireland"
"Question 3 - How many senators does each Simerican state send to the Senate?"
Both housemates correctly answered "Two". George originally thought it was "Three" but changed his mind in time.
"Question 4 - Who is the President of the SimCity Chamber of Commerce?"
Serena - "Prunella Penny"
George - "Maria Montoya"
SB - "The correct answer is Prunella Penny"
"Question 5 - What is the political body immediately above the City Council?"
Lucy - "State Assembly"
George - "Congress"
SB - "The correct answer is the State Assembly."
"That concludes this Duel of Minds.
"Lucy, you scored 5 points. George, you scored a measly 3 points.
"Lucy, you are the winner and will proceed to the Rich House through the gate in the garden.
"George, you are today's weaker Sim and will go the the Poor House the same way. Goodbye."
11.32PM - George sat by the Divide, looking longingly into the Rich House. He had only been there a couple of days but because his political knowledge was lacking, he was back again in the Poor House.
Nicole came to the Diary Room.
"I am pleased that Lucy won the Duel of Minds but I am sorry to see her go. I now have the chance to know George but I don't know if the short time before I have to choose who I want out of here tomorrow afternoon will change my perceptions of him. I am not looking forward to it.
This point is where we are going to have to leave it.
How will the nominations go tomorrow afternoon?
Will George ever be in the Rich House again?
Who is going to be the new housemate?
Tune in tomorrow
