Biography
Betty Newbie launched her international career in helpology after publishing the popular self-help book, "Unleash the Gender Neutral Metaphor Within", but she recently moved to town to help people on a smaller scale. She certainly doesn't miss the hustle bustle of the big city. Rather she finds the pace of this town perfect for her brand of instructional tutelage.

Betty Newbie (née Simovitch) is a Sim first introduced during the player tutorial in The Sims. After the completion of the tutorial, she (along with Bob Newbie) can be played like other Sims. Due to the chronology of events in The Sims series, she appears as a teenager named Betty Simovitch in The Sims 3, residing in Riverview. Aside from these major titles, Betty appears in several console titles, and appears (as a deceased Sim) in the family tree of several Sims in The Sims 2.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Life leading up to The Sims 3[edit | edit source]

Betty is featured as a teenager, 13 days away from becoming a young adult. She lives in Riverview, with her parents, Fatima and Vadim Simovitch. She wants to find the love of her life. She wears a light pink dress and has auburn hair. She is quite skilled, being level 6 in her guitar skill, and having both the virtuoso and artistic traits. Her mother dreams of Betty becoming a musician, and hopes she will follow that path. Betty enjoys music, but doesn't want to make it into a career like her mother envisions.

When the game starts, she is best friends with Bob Newbie. Even though the chronology of the series places Bob Newbie as her future husband, if left alone with story progression on, she may form relationships with other men. However, she can easily be directed to start a romance with Bob if the player desires, due to their high friendship level.

Life leading up to The Sims 2: Pets (console)[edit | edit source]

Betty Newbie appears in The Sims 2 Pets for console. She lives with her Bob Newbie and dog, Buddy Newbie.

Life leading up to The Sims (console)[edit | edit source]

Betty Newbie appears in The Sims for console living with her spouse in 7 Sim Avenue wearing a blue cap, blue glasses, blue top, blue pants and red shoes. They both share a 20+ relationship so it is unknown if they are really married. Neither one has a job, but it may be best to put them in the Military career track, since they are both very active. She likes to read, play in the fountain, watch TV, and look at flamingos. She appears as Betty Roomies in the Get a Life Storyline as one of the Sims the player can move in with after level 3, with interests in Travel and Music. She can also be seen at the ending movie, wanting to give the player a high-five.

Life leading up to The Sims[edit | edit source]

Betty Newbie appears a bit later when playing the Newbie Family tutorial. Betty is considered the helpful house wife from 1950s suburbia. The Newbie home (7 Sim Lane) also has a 1950s suburbia theme, making it a custom rendered tutorial. She is not in love with Bob, but players who play the Newbie family beyond the tutorial can handle their relationship as they please (although every adult Sim couple is considered spouses in The Sims). She is characterized by her medium-long dark brown hair, a purple shirt with green capris, her jewelry and her large frame.

A different version of Betty appeared in the Japanese version of the game, with a fit physique, white dress, black hair and completely different facial features.

According to SimEnhancer, Betty Newbie was the second Sim created in Neighborhood 1.

Life leading up to The Sims 2[edit | edit source]

By the time the storyline has caught to The Sims 2, she and her husband Bob are already deceased. Through her daughter, Brandi, Betty has two grandsons; Dustin Broke and Beau Broke, with a third on the way. Brandi was widowed by her husband, Skip before the storyline of The Sims 2 began. She has similar clothes and hairstyle to Coral Oldie. Betty died shortly before the birth of her first grandson Dustin. Her husband died earlier; both died while Brandi was pregnant. When her character file is viewed in SimPE, her hair genes are for black hair, which is rather strange since she has brown hair in all of her other appearances. This could imply her hair was dyed brown in The Sims 3, or it could be a simple continuity error. By looking at the family pictures it can be seen that Betty had lost weight. According to her age data in SimPE, Betty had 15 days left in the elder life stage when she died.

Resurrection tip
This Sim has no character data and cannot be resurrected in-game. For more information, read this guide.

Life leading up to The Sims 2 (console)[edit | edit source]

Betty lives here with her roommate, Bob. However, they are very different from the usual light-skinned Bob Newbie and Betty Newbie. Whether they are canonical in their appearance, as both Bob and Betty are deceased by the time of The Sims 2, or are entirely different people, is unknown.

Life leading up to The Sims 4[edit | edit source]

An official Maxis recreation of Betty, Bob, and their dog Buddy from the console version of The Sims 2: Pets was uploaded to the The Sims 4 Gallery on February 15, 2019, marking the 19th anniversary of The Sims. Betty is unemployed, has no skills, and is 23 days from becoming an adult. If the player does not have The Sims 4: City Living, her Unflirty trait is replaced with Loner.
