The 5th challenge is to cross a bridge.
— Announcer

"Bridge Crossing" is the 5th episode of Battle For Dream Island. It was released on May 1, 2010.


Before the intro

The episode begins with Needle's cake becoming its own star and beginning nuclear fusion, causing a massive windstorm on Earth. Teardrop is blown into a tree, and it breaks down. The tree lands above Pin, who is standing on the side of a wall, indicating that the winds are very powerful. Leafy and Needle are standing against a large rock. Leafy gets angry at Needle, calling her "Needy". After an argument between the two, Leafy slaps Needle hard, and she flies away. Snowball says that she deserved it, as it was her cake that began the windstorm. Needle flies toward the growing yeast cake and pops it, which causes the storm to settle and makes Pin fall to the ground.

Cake at Stake

The Announcer says that he was going to have an ice cream cake, but forgot the ice cream and has to use a chunk of ice again. Pencil overreacts and collapses, but it turns out that Announcer is just kidding, and actually has an ice cream cake this time. Bubble is safe with 0 votes again. As Announcer throws the ice cream cake, Needle falls down and pops Bubble before she can get her cake. Match shows her disgust at Needle, but Pencil says she loves "needies", and Needle slaps Pencil. Match protects herself by saying that she said Needle. Announcer sees Needle, and flings her back to her team. Firey, Pen and Pencil also get 0 votes. Unfortunately for Pencil, the piece of cake hits her back. The Announcer says that Match and Eraser got 1 vote apiece but is then cut off mid-sentence and corrects himself. Match thanks the Announcer for not saying "apiece". Pin and Woody remain. The Announcer says Woody's name, causing him to sigh in relief. However, it is revealed that he is actually eliminated with nine out of the fourteen votes, causing him to freak out. He is sent to the TLC, as stated by the Announcer. Pen asks why he said "The TLC" and asks if he was referring to an object, to which he answered yes, while the screen displayed the "Tiny Loser Chamber" as Woody falls in.

SB's face while he is experiencing a flashback.

The next contest is to cross a bridge. The team with the most members to cross the bridge wins and the first person to cross the bridge gets a Win Token. While Coiny and Snowball are talking, Snowball notices Golf Ball. A flashback then happens about GB saying that Snowball's brain is small. After that, he tells Coiny he has some business to do. He tells GB that it is time to pay, and throws Rocky at Golf Ball, but he misses. Rocky then ends up hitting the bridge, causing the bridge to fall. It collapses with Bubble on it, and Pencil and Match follow Bubble as a part of their alliance. Pen then notices a second bridge.

Do do do do, do do do!

Leafy asks Ice Cube whether she wants revenge or not, and luckily for her, she doesn't. Leafy says that Ice Cube and Needle can go together. Snowball catches Golf Ball, then hurls her into Leafy, Ice Cube, and Needle, causing them to fall off the bridge. Tennis Ball tells Snowball to calm down. This angers Snowball again, and he wants to throw him off the cliff, but the bridge's hole is too small. Snowball removes the poles from the bridge and throws Tennis Ball off the cliff. With no bridge to cross, the teams have to use the ropes to cross. While Pen is on the ropes, Eraser notices that the rope is actually a bunch of black bendy straws taped together. Because of Pen's weight, the rope collapses and he falls.

Announcer notices that no one has crossed the bridge, and there is no way to cross, so they have to do another literal tiebreaker. Snowball rips the tie, and the Squashy Grapes win the tiebreaker.


At the end, Pencil asks where Golf Ball is. Pen says that "golf balls sink". Tennis Ball then said, "So do rocks."


  • This is the first time the Tiny Loser Chamber is seen on-screen.
  • Many people think that the cake made by Needle is the cake that Tennis Ball made (rice cake). In fact, the cake was the one with an over-usage of yeast, not the rice cake.
  • This is the first episode in which no one gets a Win Token.
  • Innuendo: Pen says, "When I win, there will be a big sign in front saying ‘Pen Island!’ No spaces, all caps!" According to what he said, the sign will read "PENISLAND".
  • Out of the 16 contestants in the episode, 9 fall off the bridge. 8 of them fall because of Snowball, either indirectly or directly.
  • If Golf Ball and Rocky drowned, this would be the first episode to have a character besides Ice Cube, Bubble, or Firey die.
  • Bubble hums the same tune from X Finds Out His Value.


  • During the tiebreaker, Pencil, Match, Golf Ball, Leafy, Needle, and Rocky are seen, even though they fell through the gorge.
  • After Pencil gets hit by an ice cream cake and she turns around, the ice cream cake on her back suddenly disappears.
  • From that same scene, Teardrop is on the Cherries, between Pencil and Match.
  • Pencil is not on the Cake at Stake after Needle slaps her.
  • When Pin says "OMPF" (Oh my pin factory), she doesn't have arms.


  1. Bubble is popped by Needle when she falls from space.
  2. Golf Ball and Rocky drown. (Debatable)
