Questions Answered is the 8th episode of Battle for BFDI, and the 39th episode overall of the Battle for Dream Island series. It was released on March 10, 2018.



The below information contains spoilers for BFDI/BFDIA/IDFB/BFB. Please watch the episodes in question if you haven't seen them already.

Cold open

Gelatin inspects Fries' fries, stating that some of them seem to be "swollen". Fries gets mad, believing that "swollen" is Gelatin's new slang word for "overweight". Gelatin says that two of Fries' fries look "yellowed", "bulbous", and seem to be "wiggling". Fries is now visibly angry, and tells Gelatin to "eat someone else's innards". Gelatin then slides over to Barf Bag, implying that Gelatin wants to eat the stuff that is in her, who greets Gelatin while doing the intro pose Four would normally do.

Before Cake at Stake

Donut and Cake look at Clock, who's being used as a Cake at Stake alarm clock. When Clock's alarm goes off, Donut announces that Cake at Stake is beginning.

Cake at Stake (on the Moon)

On the Moon, which Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.02.30 PM and Babop are still stranded on it, watch Donut broadcasting himself through TV. Donut, calling himself a "bagel brain", announces that he will host the Cake at Stake through there, which makes Lollipop laugh since "bagel brain" was the nickname she gave him. Donut's arms pass through the TV screen as he forcefully grabs her lips and shuts her mouth to make her stop. Tennis Ball asks Donut how he's doing this despite him being on Earth. Donut attributes this ability to his new camera, which can also transmit matter along with light. Basketball, acknowledging this, then tells him to get both teams back on Earth, but he can't, for the transmission only goes one way. Lollipop uses that to her advantage and bites Donut's hands. When Donut tries pulling his hands out, they are stuck in the camera and therefore stuck on the moon.

Donut exclaims that he cannot hold this position and then finds out a way to unite the Earth with the moon. Donut clips some grass in between his legs and then starts to warp Earth through his camera. This is successful, as after this is done, the Earth's surface is now right above the Moon. The objects then jump back onto Earth, and with Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.02.30 PM back, Cake at Stake can continue.

Cake at Stake (on Earth)

Donut begins Cake at Stake near the Lavatories. The Better Namers launch themselves into Donut's hole, making it harder for him to speak. 22,238 votes were cast, and the cake for the Cake at Stake is the Firey Speaker Box, chopped up into seven pieces. Firey is shocked at that, and Donut says that it's just "tit for tat", considering what the Firey Speaker Box done to him in the Cake at Stake in Get in the Van.

Tennis Ball, Blocky, TV, Grassy and Basketball are all safe, getting Firey Speaker Box pieces. While Robot Flower broke the signal due to an "explosive" that would later kill Remote, she was safe anyways. It narrowed down to Golf Ball and 8-Ball. Donut announces that Golf Ball is safe and 8-Ball is out.

8-Ball is launched between the Earth and the Moon, and Donut teases him for being eliminated in the eighth episode. 8-Ball denies having a favorite number, but Donut interrupts and eliminates him by turning gravity back on. 8-Ball is crushed between the Earth and the Moon, and Saw accidentally inhales the fumes from 8-Ball being crushed.

The Contest

The contest is a quiz show, and getting one question right would result in the team that answered correctly being safe. As Donut is about to announce the first question, Bubble has a flashback to BFDI, where she remembers Pencil saying that she is so dumb she can't even count to three. However, before she can answer question one, Pen buzzes in the correct answer, making his team, Death P.A.C safe.

Bubble is then belittled by Match and Snowball. Match tells Bubble that her "bembership" is on the line. After Donut announces question two, Bubble gets nervous, as both Match and Snowball give her the evil eye. When Bubble buzzes her answer, it is wrong, making Match demote Bubble from a "bember" to a "bemb".

Meanwhile, at Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 10.57.50 PM, Stapy, instead of answering the question, is building something resembling a buzzer made with a popper, cardboard, and tape that was removed from Puffball. Cloudy buzzes in his answer, and gets it correct, making Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 10.57.17 PM safe and Fries upset. Meanwhile, Barf Bag continues to struggle, despite Donut giving her easy questions, attempting to ensure his team safety. She blames it on her reflexes, but Lollipop states that her "barf molecules" cause her to be slow.

Question three is the result of snow and gasoline being mixed. Barf Bag still can't figure out the answer, and Saw attempts to buzz in "glue", the correct answer, but accidentally says "eight" instead. Saw is shocked, but Book comforts her, saying that everyone makes mistakes occasionally.

Barf Bag is still struggling. Meanwhile, Cake knows the answer, but is scared to buzz his answer in fear due to Loser's elimination and Loser not being there to support him. That's when Pin gives a motivational speech, motivating Cake to buzz in his answer, getting it correct.

Donut tells Barf Bag he can't take her struggling anymore, so he asks her to recall what he sees when he looks at his teammates, which he said in a speech only his teammates heard. Saw says "eight", but it's wrong, but Barf Bag then gets the answers correct, giving Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 10.59.37 PM safety. In addition to that, Donut is overjoyed, but Stapy complains that the question was biased.

Question five is 1 + 1, which even Saw herself can't say due to her only saying "eight". Donut says that his duty as host is to punish Saw for getting the question wrong, and plays an audio tape of Four's screech. However, it does not affect Saw. When Donut points the recorder towards himself, he gets screeched anyway. Golf Ball buzzes in her answer, which is correct.

The sixth question is to name the past tense of "eat". Saw buzzes in "eight" once again, due to 8-Ball's fumes, and Donut is about to call her out for being wrong. However, since the correct answer "ate" and response answer "eight" sound alike, Saw gets it correct.

Final two

The final two teams yet to get answer a question correctly are Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.03.33 PM and Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 10.57.50 PM. The final question is to name Donut's favorite season, and Stapy guesses winter. He is incorrect, and while Puffball pushes the fake buzzer to Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.03.33 PM, he pretends to be dismayed.

Bubble knows the answer, but the fake buzzer doesn't work, and gives Stapy time to buzz in the correct answer - Summer. Donut announces that Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.03.33 PM is up for elimination. As the voting card for that team shows up, Match angrily leaves it to object to her team's loss. She shows Donut the footage of Stapy cheating, resulting in Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 10.57.50 PM being up for elimination instead.


Fanny approaches Bubble, telling her that Match didn't know the answers either and calls Match a hypocrite. Bubble thanks her for the information, and Fanny says that she hates Match.

Continuity references

Cultural references

  • When Grassy enters Donut's mouth, the death sound from Roblox is heard.
  • Similarly, when the rest of the team enters Donut's mouth, the hurt sound from Minecraft Beta is heard.


  • This is the second BFB episode not written by Michael Huang. The first being Four Goes Too Far.
  • Barf Bag triggers the intro for this episode, making her the first female to do so.
  • This marks the first time Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.02.30 PM lost a member.
  • 8-Ball was the third male contestant eliminated in a row, along with Loser and Roboty.
  • 8-Ball's elimination is coincidental, considering that the number 8 is on him and that he was eliminated in BFB 8. This would be the second coincidental elimination in a row.
  • Babop will be the last team to be UFE.
  • The least and most voted contestants are both voiced by Cary Huang.
  • This episode has the person with the most votes as having the smallest proportion of all total votes, at just 21.6%.
  • The thing inside Fries's head could possibly be X.
    • If this is so, it is unknown how X did it, nor do we know if Four can do the same.
    • The actual asset for this 'X' has the top half but only part of the bottom half. Written on it is 'THIS IS NOT X'. This is possibly an Easter egg written by someone on the team, and this increases the chance of it being X.
    • In Cary Huang's reaction video, he states that he really wants to tell us what it is, but he doesn't, saying "You already know what it is". This almost confirms X's status inside Fries.
  • When Grassy flies to Donut's mouth hole at Cake at Stake, the "Roblox Death Sound" effect was used.
    • When his teammates join him, the old "Minecraft Hurt Sound" is used, but it's a little distorted.
  • Pen and Cloudy are the only members of their respective teams to have speaking roles in this episode.
  • This is Barf Bag and Lollipop's first fight since Why Would You Do This on a Swingset.
  • This is the second time voting icons have been revealed of contestants who weren't up for elimination in the episode. The first time was in Getting Teardrop to Talk with Book and Ice Cube's icons.
  • In Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 11.03.33 PM's voting screen, the letters aren't ABCDEFG, but IJKLMNO
    • Even though she wasn't up for voting, some of them did receive a few votes in the comments
  • Puffball isn't bandaged anymore because Screen Shot 2017-11-04 at 10.57.50 PM used the bandages to make the fake buzzer.
  • The black fume emitted from 8-Ball after his death makes a person always says "eight", which affected Saw.
  • This is the first time in BFB that the votes have gone down.
  • Although some of the contestants are still dead and most of them haven't changed (like in BFB 7), Needle somehow managed to detach from Naily.
  • This is the first BFB episode where a character breaks the fourth wall (not including when the ones that are UFE are revealed).
  • 8-Ball is the first male contestant to die onscreen when they get eliminated.
  • This is the first even-numbered episode of Season 4 without Recommended Characters.
  • Around 3:20, the Liar Ball made a cameo on TV during the cake at stake.
  • It is revealed in this episode that Match is flexible (although this doesn't make any sense because she's made out of wood).
  • Match pushing the voting screen and jumping out may be a reference to Thanks for 4 years!, because in that video Pen does something similar.
  • With Firey Speaker Box dead, this marks the point where all hosts have died at least once.
  • Despite Donut's favorite season being summer, he was eliminated back in Get Digging, which happened in Summer 2012.

  • This Episode marks the first time that Earth and Moon together can be seen in one scene.
  • Donut's snap is the same sound from Ballers.
  • 8-Ball is the first ball to be eliminated from BFB.
  • Cloudy saying "Gluck Gluck Hork Pork" is a reference to one of the Cake at Stake songs (hork hork hork glorp glorp...).
  • In the .fla files when Match shows Donut the footage at the end of the episode, there is an extended version of Donut watching the footage.
  • This is the first episode to be released on Saturday in the Pacific Time Zone.
  • When Saw replys 8 to the question involving the team speech, Donut refers it to debatably correct, as his team consists of 8 members during the speech.


  • At 4:55, Woody has no arms.
    • Pie can also be seen with no limbs, and Basketball has no legs.
      • This could be because Pie was sitting and facing inside the pedestal.
  • During the beginning of the challenge, Flower looks a bit smaller than usual.
  • During the beginning of the challenge, Firey is not burning.
  • For a brief frame at 5:41, Bubble's mouth is not colored in.
  • At 5:49 Donut loses his arms and Bubble has no mouth. However, this might of been to add drama through their appearance.
  • When Donut is saying the question is supposed to be easy, Barf Bag was talking without moving her lips.
  • When Saw says "Ow, this is easy!", for a brief moment, her mouth is not colored.
  • At 6:35-6:48 Puffball's face is larger than normal.
