Game The Sims 2: Apartment Life
Playability Playable
Neighborhood Belladonna Cove

Carlos Contender is one of the pre-made playable Sims residing in Belladonna Cove, the neighborhood shipped with The Sims 2: Apartment Life. When the game begins, he is an elder and a successful boxing Hall of Famer. Carlos is shown to have had a relationship with Chastity Gere in the lot's family stories section, though at the moment, he is being wooed by Jessica Peterson. His only living family in Belladonna Cove is Isabel Baldwin (née Contender), his niece, along with his nephew-in-law Benjamin, and his great-niece Sofia and great-nephew Marcus. Carlos is the older brother of the late Santana Contender and the brother in-law of Santana's late wife, Magdalena Contender (née Destraga).

Carlos is the social butterfly in Belladonna Cove, as he has a solid 100 reputation. Carlos has a very high enthusiasm in Fitness, and he is very close to having top fitness. Carlos' aspiration is Popularity, but by looking through his photo album and bio, it is hinted that it could have originally been Romance. In addition, he also has a hidden Romance aspiration token.

Carlos' last name, "Contender", probably comes from a famous book about boxing titled The Contender. His first name, Carlos, and his brother's name (Isabel's father) Santana, is a reference to Carlos Santana, the famous Mexican guitarist and leader of the band Santana.

Despite the fact that Carlos is at the top of the Athletic career, he does not have the skills required for the job. When the family is first played, his age bar will imply that he is 84 days old and that he has 26 days left to live. When it is 6:00 PM on the first day of playing his household, he will not age. Carlos' SimDNA in SimPE confirms that his hair was red before it turned grey. While it isn't explicitly stated that Carlos is the older brother of the two, both his parent's memories state that he was born first. However, neither Carlos nor Santana have memories of the other one joining the family, so the evidence that Carlos is the older sibling is not inviolable.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Instead of having a memory of becoming an overachiever, he has a memory of seeing himself become an overachiever. This is likely a mistake made by the developers.
