World Starlight Shores

Mercedes May is a pre-made Sim, living in Starlight Shores, featured in The Sims 3: Showtime. She lives with her friend, Sadie Mason, and the latter's boyfriend, Rich Richmond, in the Dueling Singers household.

She works as a singer, starting out the game at level 3. Her friend Sadie works in the same career track, at two levels higher, and is said to have helped Mercedes grow as a minor celebrity and singer.

Mercedes is implied to be the archetypal backstabbing best friend. In her biography, Mercedes is described as wanting to be in the spotlight, and not being afraid of stealing it from Sadie. Moreover, not only does Mercedes not mind stealing the spotlight from Sadie, she is also interested in her boyfriend Rich, making advances at him. This is also confirmed by Rich's biography, where he is said to have been charmed. The two are also romantic interests when the game starts. This has led Sadie to wonder if welcoming Mercedes into her home was a good idea.


  • Mercedes shares her surname with Pam May, a Sim from Oasis Landing. However, it is unknown if they were meant to be related in any way.
  • Her first name may be a reference to Mercedes-Benz, a German multinational company brand.
