Should I Spend Donuts on Jessica and the Lovejoy Residence?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 50 has arrived in Springfield!  With the all new Level Jessica Lovejoy is back in Springfield!  That’s right my friends…the stereotypical preacher’s kid is back, wreaking havoc on everyone and everything (poor Jeb)!  She’s back and up to no good…well up to convincing Bart to do evil things! Now I know you may be trying to decide if this preacher’s kid is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Jessica Lovejoy to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this devilish child to YOUR Springfield!

Building/Decoration: Lovejoy Residence
Character: Jessica Lovejoy
Donut Price: 180 donuts
Dimensions: 5×10
$175, 18xp/6hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Indolence +10

-Comes with a great quest line
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Pretty decent payout on the building, great way to generate some extra cash in your town.
-Hilarious outdoor tasks, including vandalizing the Jebediah Springfield statue!
-It’s Jessica Lovejoy!  Once of the most requested characters in TSTO history! 

-No Character Interaction after questline.
-Not voiced
-No Character interaction, outside of Jessica, with the Lovejoy Residence

Final Thought:
Premium Take:
Jessica is a highly requested character so it’s no wonder she’s premium (all of the other highly requested ones have been too, just look at Crazy Cat Lady).  As a premium player this isn’t a bad investment, in fact it’s one I highly recommend.  I love the questline for Jessica and her 24hr task makes me giggle every time!  It’s about time Jeb got a little if only we can get a task to cut his head off….
I will say the one downside though is that her questline heavily relies on Bart.  So during the Superhero event it might be difficult to run this questline if you’ve purchased Bartman.

Freemium Take:
I still think this is a great character/building combo in the game.  However, while the comform-o-meter impact and payout are decent, it ishigh priced.  .  Personally, if I was a freemium player, this is one I would hold off on for now.  The price is just too high, especially with the limited-time Superhero items right now.   This is one character I will say you can put on your list of “nice to have”, but it’s not a “must buy” at least not now.  So save those precious donuts!  (or build them up with the Superhero event bonus  rounds!) 🙂

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I have purchased Jessica, right away.    However, this is NOT a Limited-Time Item so take your time with your thought process.  Jessica will still be there in a few weeks.  So if you’re on the fence or worried about saving up your donuts relax..there’s no rush to get her.

Jessica’s Permanent Tasks:


Task Length Earns Location
Pretend to be a Good Girl 1hr $105, 26xp Lovejoy Residence
Heckle Fat People 4hrs $260, 70xp Up All Night Gym
Baton Twirl 8hrs $420, 105xp Outside
Go to Sunday School 12hrs $600, 150xp First Church of Springfield
Disgrace a Local Landmark 24hrs $1,000, 225xp Outside

  1. Got her in a Black Friday Mystery Box! Woot

  2. I’m really thinking About Getting Little Jessica! I was happy to see her come on board!…Although, now I have to make a decision on whether to get her or the Preparatory School!…I have 10 more donuts to get (earn or find)…which is better though?? They both cost the same and I really want one of them without spending real money yet… 😀

  3. I’m having trouble getting jeb, it says to tap on Homer 10 times in a row but nothing happens after I do. Any advice?

    • You need to send him on his Mypad quest. Once he pulls out his tablet and starts tapping, so do you. Tap on him. The progression bar pulls up on the screen to tell you how much time is left on his task. Ignore it. Do NOT close it. Let it sit there. Just focus on Homer walking around and tap the heck out of him over n over a bunch of times til the pop up tells you that you won Jeb and the donuts.

  4. Anyway to get a screenshot of her vandilizing, especially since I probably won’t be able to buy her for a while if ever. I want in on giggles lol

  5. Why doesn’t Helen Lovejoy interact with her house when she doesn’t even have a 24 hour task ????? (Her 1hr task requires a premium building, why couldn’t her 24 hour?) This makes as much sense as Mindy not interacting with the building she came with and not having a four hour task (especially since there was a four hour task to eat at Madame Chao’s in her initial quest line). So frustrating for no reason Ahhh

    (I’m not really upset, I’m perfectly calm)
    (I like parentheses)

  6. I concur – it’s in my “list as “nice to have”, but it’s not a “must buy” at least not now.” I was thinking pretty much exactly the same thing when I got to that sentence!

  7. I got her, she is sooooo cute! Plus I love her task with jeb!! She’s always on yeah task in my town! I think she was worth it!

  8. Definitely want her and I am grateful we have time to pick her up after the event. Limited time items are driving me nuts!

  9. I’m going to buy it, because it’s Jessica Lovejoy, and all I needed to hear is that a task will make me giggle :). But I’m going to wait until the event is over as I’m running low on xmas Gil deal donuts.

  10. anakinskywalker

    her 24h tast ist awesome!

  11. My neice told me to buy her…….my real neice not a Joe quimby relative.

    She is a key character has a great house (on a ministers pay?) And great outdoor tasks.

  12. It’s tempting because I love her character in the show, but I think I’ll pass for now.
    I get more pleasure from the voiced characters so i think I’ll save my sprinklies for them – which sadly means I have a very male dominated Springfield. But then I guess we all do to some extent.

  13. GM Alissa!! I hope you can help. At 1:30am I put one of my criminal fighter with a felon to wake up at 7:20am and not complete. It still says 3:59… Should I be worried or call EA?

  14. Already bought her. I figured I already have her parents might as well get her also. Love her 24 hour task.

  15. I had to have her in my Freemium town! I had saved 170 donuts and actually bought a scratcher to get her. Of course I got her in my main town too. Thinking of getting her for my C but the limited early access ended before the time was up (with the second update on march 11) so I have to reach lvl 50 to get her now.

  16. Honestly, while considering myself pretty familiar with the vast majorityof episodes in Simpsons history, this character didn’t even remotely ring a bell with me. Quite unlike cult objects like Crazy Cat Lady, Plopper or even Manjula and Brandine.
