In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?
Wowza… has EA been hitting us with stuff over and over or what? You might think they like when there’s quests for all of it but before I start rambling about a completely different topic, I thought it was high time I finally dished on the origins of Paris Texan. She is a character that is earned once tappers upgrade their Springfield Heights to a real estate value of one billion dollars. There was a time I thought I’d never get my area to this mark but after EA so kindly made it possible to pick the building facades to the look I desired once they were completely upgraded, I was off to the races and finally earned the Billionaire Haven. Since I’m sure my story is probably not unlke and a lot of you may have finished this mark in TSTO… I figured it was high time I dished on the origins of these items. Let’s take a look at the Best. Show. Ever.
First up, Paris Texan. We first meet her in “Homerazzi” (S18:E16). Homer decides to make money as a member of the paparazzi and armed with a camera, he take shots of everyone from Krusty the Clown to Drederick Tatum. One of the places he goes for celebrity shots is Fancy Farms, the snooty supermarket all the celebrities shop at.
Homer’s goal is to ambush famous people and capture some photos. Bart and him spot the Rich Texan and his daughter Paris in the store. Bart insults her so they can get photos of Paris behaving badly. I think it’s funny when Paris tells her Chihuahua to barf for mommy but it’s even funnier that she kisses Bart at the end of all the fight pics.
Paris must have a thing for kissing young boys since we later see her kissing Milhouse at the celebrity party at the Snub Club. At the end of the episode, she is also at Rainier Luftwaffe Wolfcastle’s off shore party platform with her dad.
In “All About Lisa” (S19:E20), there’s a character that resembles Paris among the attendees at the 38th Annual Springfield Showbiz Awards in one of the quick flash scenes. Also could just be a random blonde-headed Springfieldian but the Rich Texan was there too so maybe. Paris did go to another awards show later and is wearing the same dress in “Oh Brother, Where Bart Thou?” (S21:E8)… the 62nd Annual Emmy Creative Awards. It’s so awful Homer and Lisa would rather watch sick horses be turned into gelatin for gum drops.
Our last appearance is during the Weezer song in “Waverly Hills 9-0-2-1-D’oh” (S20:E19). Paris is seen walking through Waverly Hills with her Chihuahua in her backpack. Must not be a teacup Chihuahua since it has its own tiny Chihuahua in its own backpack.
But enough about a parody of a person I find loathsome. Let’s take a look at the item that unlocks her. While the Billionaire’s Haven is not connected to Paris, it is one of those places a girl like her would probably hang out with her daddy. This particular item is ceratinly inspired by the Billionaire’s Retreat from “The Burns and the Bees” (S20:E8). Burns has fun with Ted Turner, the founder of Facebook ,and other rich muckety mucks at the Billionaire’s Retreat.
They roast gems over an open fire, shoot arrows at priceless paintings, play Quidditch, and generally have fun. The Rich Texan is among the billionaires at the retreat. Where else could rich guys with insane net-worths tell campfire stories and bet their personal assistants in high stakes poker games?
Just make sure if you’re ever lucky enough to be a member of this elite group that you don’t lose money to a little girl and her bees and end up thrown to the millionaire’s camp. They own minor league hockey teams (shudder). So that’s that friendereenos. The origins of Paris Texan and the Billionaire’s Haven. Have you earned these yet? What do you think of them? Sound off in the comments and happy tapping.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
