Paparazzi is a storyline mission in Chapter 4.
Earnest is in the Observatory making plans. He asks Jimmy to do his job as the new boss of the Nerds and obtain scandalous photographs of Mandy. He's evasive about what he wants these pictures for, repeating endlessly that his plan is great. Jimmy reluctantly goes after them.
If Jimmy hasn't already obtained the digital camera by passing Photography 4, he is given one for the duration of this mission.
He first heads to the Gym, where Mandy is leading cheerleading practice. After he snaps a picture, Angie falls down to Mandy's contempt. Having worked up a sweat practicing, Mandy declares herself disgusting and heads to the girl's dorm for a shower.
Jimmy enters the Girls' Dorm, avoiding the ever-present Mrs. Peabody, and heads to the bathroom, where Mandy is taking a shower. He snaps a picture of the shower stall Mandy is in. Afterward, Mandy leaves the shower stall wrapped in only a towel and walks back to her room.
After Mandy's back in her room, Jimmy follows her. She has put on her pajamas and is shaving her legs. Jimmy takes a picture of this.
If Jimmy is seen by Mandy at any time inside the Girls' Dorm, he automatically fails the mission and receives a full trouble meter.
With the three pictures in hand, Jimmy heads back to Earnest at the Library and hands him the pictures.
- If Jimmy is caught by Miss Peabody after Mandy enters her room but before getting the picture, he will have to return to her room. Her door will be shut and he has to kick the door open, which for some reason she fails to notice.
- Immediately after this mission, Earnest can be encountered in free roam. He will walk inside the library and walk out a second later. He can be interacted with, insulted as well as can be fought.
- A strange thing is that if Jimmy fights Earnest, after fighting for a few seconds he will just walk away as if nothing happened and will react positively to Jimmy if interacted.
