Dina Caliente (née Bachelor; born 2nd December 1978) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer and model. She rose to fame in 2004 when her Sim-self appeared in the sequel to the first The Sims game, The Sims 2.

Early LifeEdit

Dina was born in Barnacle Bay and grew up with her sister, Nina and her mother and father. As a small child she appeared in a local TV advert advertising the new tourist attractions in Barnacle Bay.

Dina was interested in music from an early stage, she was the lead character in the musical Annie. She also won an award when the Official Dance Assosiation arrived at Barnacle Bay searching for young talent; Dina was submitted into the competition by her parents and was eventually crowned the winner.

In High School, Dina showed an interest in drama and often talked about becoming famous somehow. She was described by her drama teacher as the "perfect young actress", due to her flexibility with roles she played.

Relationship with Jeff SmithEdit

After leaving school, Dina became involved with one of her close friends Jeff Smith; the pair were together for two years. When Dina was 18, she discovered she was pregnant with a baby boy; during the 9 months of pregnancy, Dina and Jeff split and agreed to share custody of their child. Dina gave birth to Tyler Caliente 9 months later; however, Dina suffered from Postpartum Depression and, to protect her child, she gave Jeff full custody of Tyler until she was better. Dina continued to see Tyler on a regular basis, during this time, Dina and Jeff briefly reconciled, however, it was short lived and the pair split up again. A custody battle took place for Tyler, but to protect her son from the arguments, Dina agreed to give full custody to Jeff.

Following her split from Jeff, Dina moved to Pleasantview with her sister Nina. Following their arrival in Pleasantview, Dina's dad died of lung cancer. The following year, her mother Nighat suffered a severe heart attack, which left Dina and Nina in charge of their home. Following the death of their parents, Dina and Nina were approached by Will Wright, creator of the first The Sims game. He offered Dina and Nina a role in the sequel to the original Sims game; he explained that the story would reflect their real lives and that their in-game home would be modelled off their current home. The story went quiet shortly after and speculation began as to whether the characters would appear or not. When the game was officially released, Dina and Nina was shipped with the game and were involved in one of the biggest Sim storylines ever.

The success of the game kicked into effect shortly after it's release and Dina and Nina became incredibly popular with fans; despite this, some other reaction was very negative. Dina began to receive death threats and after speaking with Will Wright, pulled out on future production of the games. It was agreed that the Caliente sisters would not be used to promote any further Expansion Packs following the release of the Base Game.

Second Child & Music Career (Justification)Edit

Dina started dating Malcolm Landgraab, who like herself, was used in the 2nd Sims game. During this time, Dina learned that she expecting another child with Malcolm. Dina and Malcolm welcomed a baby girl named Megan 9 months after.

believed that they didn't agree with her decision to pursue and acting career rather than focus on her second album. Her first main role was in the 2008 slasher movie Circus Of Horror, which followed several teenagers as they were stalked by the mysterious "Tragic Clown". During production, many on-set workers claimed that Dina hadn't been as "focused" on the movie due to problems with Malcolm at home; initially denying the rumors, Dina and Malcolm turned up at an awards ceremony together to prove their relationship was still strong. However, in July 2008, Dina officially announced that she and Malcolm had split and that they hadn't been "strong for years".

{C}Circus of Horror debuted in time for Halloween in 2008; the film received mixed reviews from critics, some claiming that the plot was "far fetched".

At the premiere of the movie, Dina announced that she was currently writing songs for her second album and that she had been signed by Sim Records. Speculation began and an official trailer was released for the album, titled "Let's Dance". The album was confirmed to have a pure "dance theme" with no slower songs featuring. The album was released on July 26th 2010, along with the debut single "We're Going To Ibiza". The song scored number 2 in the EA Music Charts; the song was praised for it's "summer theme" and was compared to Dina's most successful single from her debut album "Endless Summer". The album itself was met by high praise from critics, some saying Dina had finally managed to "reach her peak"; the album debuted at number 1 on the EA Music Album chart and also won the award for "Best Sim Album" at the Annual YouTube Sims Awards. Dina went on to release another single from the album, titled "Sex On The Beach"; the album reached number 7 in the charts.

Dina went on to release a single for the movie "A Christmas Carol", the song titled "Where Are You Christmas", featured Dina singing with clips of the movie being played; this song marked Dina's second Christmas single since "Santa Clause Is Coming To Town".

Return to The Sims and "In The Spot Light"Edit


Dina as she appears in The Sims 3

The Announcement that The Sims 3 was in production lead to speculation that Dina and Nina would return to the game; no confirmation was made and when an advert was released featuring a blonde woman with an elderly rich man, speculation mounted and many believed this to be Dina. EA Games refused to comment on the character and simply stated that viewers would have to "buy the game" when it was released. Upon release, Dina and Nina were no where to be seen. The storyline in the game was set before the events of The Sims and The Sims 2, so an appearance from either Dina or Nina would contradict the storyline in The Sims 2. Despite this, Dina confirmed on her YouTube page that she would be involved with The Sims 3, but it wouldn't be as "big" as it was in The Sims 2 and it would be later on in the year. In 2010, a new neighborhood was available for download named "Barnacle Bay", the same name of the town Dina and Nina were brought up in; and much to fans delight, Dina and Nina made a return as a younger form of themselves. Dina claimed her decision to return was purely down to "fans request" and said that she was pleased that her return wasn't on as bigger scale as her Sims 2 appearance. Many fans criticized Dina and Nina's return, however, stating that their personalities had switched and that some of their story lines, traits and aspirations contradicted those of The Sims 2, some also said that they didn't look enough like their characters in The Sims 2. Many critics claimed they believed that EA Games used the two characters to attract people to buy the town, as both characters had proved popular in The Sims 2.

Dina's Third album went into production and it was announced by her record label that it would continue a similar theme to "Let's Dance", however it would be more "pop" than "dance". Dina announced on her official YouTube page that she was working with "Simmy B" for her third album. The first single titled "Can't Get You Out Of My Mind' was officially released on the 1st April 2011; the single was met by mixed reviews, some saying that it was a classic "cheesy pop song," with others saying they felt the lyrics "didn't make sense". Nevertheless, the song went on to be Dina's first Number 1 single over at EA Music and the video won an award for "most creative Sim Video".The song became a huge hit,selling more than 1,350,000 copies,becoming the 9th best selling single in the sims music history and was nominated "single of the year" in every city that the single was released in.The single won the title in both Strangetown and Simcity. The album was released on the 11th April; it has been Dina's most downloaded album to date and scored number 4 on the EA Music Album charts.

There were 10 tickets per show on sale upon original release, however, due to them selling quickly, the number was extended to 25 per show. It was also announced in March that a 2nd Circus Of Horror is in the works, with Dina being confirmed to return as the main character once again; there have also been rumors of a Sims Factor arriving on YouTube in the coming months and speculation lead people to believe that Dina was set to be a judge; this has not been confirmed.
