— Donut, Why Would You Do This on a Swingset
Donut is a male object contestant for Battle for Dream Island Again and Battle for BFDI. He was the first person to be eliminated in BFDIA, with 573 dislikes. His record of dislikes was later broken by Puffball with 1455 dislikes in episode 6. He, Coiny, and Pin created W.O.A.H. Bunch, but Donut was eliminated shortly after.
Donut came back in Battle for BFDI as a contestant. He is a member of Team Ice Cube!. After the loss of Four, Donut became the show's substitute host in "Four Goes Too Far", until it was revealed that X was still around. Donut retired his host status to X in "This Episode Is About Basketball".
However, in Battle for BFDI, Donut is more considerate and thoughtful of other contestants, especially his teammates. He has been seen getting along with Bottle, looking out for Bomby, calling Gelatin his "brother", attempting to inspire and rally his teammates to win a challenge, telling X that he was a good host, and defending Bell when everyone was climbing her string. He believes everyone should be treated with respect and not as objects.
Generally, Donut is a rational person, similar to his teammate named Barf Bag. However, when provoked, he easily becomes emotional and angry, and usually resorts to yelling, with his interactions with Gelatin and wanting to blow up Bomby as examples, but in some ways, Donut can be nice to others.
However, this changes after he absorbs Four in "Four Goes Too Far" and becomes the host. He becomes more rude and arrogant to the other contestants and likes to rub failures in the face of others. For instance, he mocked Loser at his elimination, which is something no other object would do. He was also shown to be somewhat biased towards his team in "Questions Answered". However, after he resigned as host and gave the position to X, Donut returned to form and became nicer.
Donut appears to be an unglazed, plain doughnut. His main body/pastry part is a light beige-apricot color. His shape also allows him to resemble the number 0, which gives him the ability to be multiplied by Four.
Although his voice normally sounds airy and dry, his voice becomes very strained when he is stressed.
Donut received 307 votes in Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know, which was enough votes to join BFDIA. After Golf Ball and Tennis Ball decided that they should split into teams, one with the team was smaller than the other. After a fight with Pencil, Puffball chimed in with the idea of somebody swapping teams for equality. While Ruby debated about who to choose, Donut quickly chose Match. However, after Firey read the fourth rule about players being able to switch teams prior to a contest, everyone switched to the larger team except Donut. Coiny joined the team, due to not wanting to be with Firey. Donut persuaded Pin to join his team. The tiny team of three quickly lost in the tug-of-war match, with Donut being the last to fall. He then told the viewers to rate videos to vote rather than to comment.
In Get Digging, after losing the first challenge, Coiny wanted to give the team a name, but Donut was too distressed by his team's loss to care. Pin said that the team should be called "the Coiny-Pin-Donut Bunch", but the idea was rejected, possibly for inaccuracy due to the upcoming elimination. Soon, Coiny thought of a team name for the trio, with the name of "Wheel Ooze a Hole Bunch", inspired by various abilities of the three, but Donut got even angrier at him because the name was a joke, that sounded like "we'll lose a whole bunch." At Cake at Stake, Donut and his teammates got laughed at during the long walk of shame. He only got 197 likes, the least out of everyone. Donut's short-lived time in BFDIA came to an end with him receiving 573 dislikes. He was then catapulted into the Tiny Loser Chamber, which then was catapulted into the Locker of Losers. The lids of both shut, and Donut wasn't seen alive until Welcome Back.
In Get in the Van, Donut was chopped up into 18 little pieces for the "cake" at Cake at Stake. It was also revealed that there is cherry filling inside of him, which Ruby thought was blood, which was corrected by Firey. According to Firey Speaker box, he was recovered and returned to the TLC.
He tells Gelatin off for trying to explode Bomby to get them to the basket, but his team is safe.
In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", he accuses the viewers of voting wrongly, asking them to be more careful. However, he is flung back to his team. He isn't seen when the rest of his team licked Teardrop out of the jawbreaker.
In "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", he first appears getting on his team's swing. He appears later after Gelatin says that his team "goes hard", and starts a speech that inspires his team - Spongy, Gelatin and Barf Bag in particular - to propel the swing. However, their swing collided with Bomby off-screen, causing his team to be up for elimination.
In "Today's Very Special Episode", he is first seen at the Cake at Stake place. However, the rest of his team are on Bell's string. He opts not to climb it, as it is disrespectful to Bell. Bell thanked Donut and says that there wasn't a "hole" in his logic. However, Gelatin, who was on the string, tells Donut off, calling him a "party pooper". He also tells Four that he didn't play the Cake at Stake intro last episode and that he owes it to the viewers to play it again. He is safe, getting a barfed cake, but Bracelety isn't. He isn't seen for the rest of the episode.
In "Fortunate Ben", Donut yells at Gelatin for saying that they should ignite Bomby to destroy the other paper planes.
In "Four Goes Too Far", Donut becomes part of Golf Ball's plan to remove Four by multiplying him with zero, or Donut. The plan is executed, Four disappears and X ran away from death. However, as a consequence, Donut possesses the powers of Four. This is because Four is now a factor of 0, Donut is now 4 times 0, or literally “the power of Four”.
Because of this, Donut becomes the temporary host and gets to choose the next contest. He grabs a syringe and injects himself with it, explaining that he now has the Twinkle of Contagion. Gelatin rudely interrupts, suggesting the name “Tinkle of Contagion”, which Donut gets very offended at. He calls Gelatin out for his immaturity, saying he acts like he's 6 years old, which he jokingly agrees to.
He explains the next contest: the contagion transfers to anyone who looks eye to eye with the contagious one, and the team with the infected person at the end of the 3 hours is up for elimination. Stapy asks why he isn’t infected yet, to which Donut simply responds that "he hasn’t said go yet". He starts the contest and gets reinfected for a short while.
In "The Liar Ball You Don't Want", he tells everyone to clear the area near the Lavatories, as Cake at Stake is starting. Lightning and Bottle are excited, Lightning using Camera to take a picture of Donut.
Donut hosts The Losers!' Cake at Stake, giving out poppers topped with "a grain of sugar". After Loser is eliminated, Donut traps him in a jawbreaker using Flower's Announcer Crusher. However, his diary is inside, and Donut, shocked, frantically presses the crusher's activation button.
While Clock, Barf Bag, Firey Jr., Bottle, Remote, and Flower oppose Donut's method of eliminating Loser, Fanny and Naily are in favor of it. When Taco falsely claims that Loser's dead, Donut throws the Liar Ball at her, squishing her. Seeing the chaos - the contestants throwing the Liar Ball around - gave Donut an idea for the next challenge.
In "Questions Answered", after hearing Clock ring, Donut announces it's time for Cake At Stake. In order to host it, since A Better Name Than That lost and they were on the moon, along with , he uses TV to connect with his camera. After calling himself "Bagel Brain", Lollipop, laughs that he's using the nickname she gave him. Donut says it's a habit and Lollipop continues to laugh until Donut shuts her mouth with his arms. Tennis Ball asks how he was able to do that if he was on Earth, to which he says his new camera can transmit matter. Basketball asks him why he can't take them back to Earth that way, but he says it only goes one way. Lollipop than bites Donut's hands and they get trapped on the Moonside. Donut then decides to unite the Earth and Moon by rolling the Earth into the camera and out of TV.
Donut then takes ABNTT to the elimination area, where all of them all sitting far away from him. He tells them they don't have to sit so far, which is followed by Grassy, going inside his hole. He says he thought that was a little overboard, but the rest of the team go inside his hole too. The prize for being safe was a chopped up piece of Firey Speaker Box, to which Firey is upset about, but Donut says it was "just tit for tat" (essentially meaning revenge for what the speaker box did to him in "Get in the Van"). After revealing 8-Ball is eliminated, he asks how he feels about being eliminated eighth episode, which he thinks is his favorite number. 8-Ball begins to tell him he doesn't have one, but is interrupted when Donut snaps his fingers, turning the gravity back on and getting 8-Ball crushed by the moon.
Donut then announces that the next contest is a quiz. During the quiz, Donut tries to get Team Ice Cube safe, getting annoyed at Barf Bag for not answering for the team. Because of this, he makes one of the questions based on what he said to his team in "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset". When Barf Bag answers this correctly, Donut is very happy, making Stapy to think he's biased. He attempts to punish teams who answer incorrectly by playing a recorded audio of Four screeching. This has no effect when he tries it on , but when he listens to it himself, he gets knocked out. However, he quickly recovers and continues the quiz. When it's between iance and Free Food to be eliminated, Donut fails to notice that Stapy and Puffball replaced iance's buzzer with a fake, so when Bubble can't buzz and Free Food answers, he announces that iance is up for elimination. He begins to narrate the voting screen but is interrupted when Match shows him footage of their buzzer being replaced and puts Free Food up for elimination instead.
In "This Episode Is About Basketball", Donut is unhappy hearing Clock (and Dora) ring, because he has to host Cake At Stake. At the start, he is very unenthusiastic until he sees Gelatin being held by Lightning above Fries in another attempt to eat his fries. After Donut shouts at him, he makes a last-ditch effort to eat a fry by chomping on one. However, this "fry" ended up being X, who explained that he ran away during the collision between Donut and Four and had been hiding ever since. Donut, who is tired of hosting, puts X in his place for hosting Cake At Stake.
Afterwards, Donut is about to announce the 9th contest, until X interrupts him, saying that he thinks he could host. Donut once again puts him in his place for hosting. During the basketball challenge, Gelatin starts to propose to their team that they use Bomby. Everyone on the team expects him to say something related to blowing him up, but he finishes his sentence with "to throw balls into the basket". Donut sarcastically agrees, but Barf Bag thinks Gelatin is starting to step in the right direction.
During the voting screen, there is no narration, until Donut reminds X that he has to say the lines. After saying the lines, he asks Donut if he did okay, which Donut says yes to. In the episode's stinger, Donut walks past X, telling him he did a good job.
In "Enter the Exit", Match asks Donut if he can recover contestants. He says he's tried bringing back Naily, but that resulted in him mutilating her. He is seen arguing with Match until X is about to announce the next challenge. However, the contestants make the challenge to bring Four back. This results in Firey stabbing a syringe into Donut, sucking up the essence of Four.
In "What Do You Think of Roleplay?", when trying to figure out who the imposter on Team Ice Cube is, Donut believes Firey Jr. isn't a fake because, as said in BFB 3, no is quite like him. Firey Jr. then believes the faker is Donut because he isn't being mean, which is an impression he got from him being the first one eliminated in BFDIA. Barf Bag defends him though, saying Donut was sticking to his principals. When the team starts suspecting Bomby was an imposter, Donut is hesistant about believing this. But iance then finds the imposter on their team, so Donut and his team are last in the challenge and are up for elimination. Donut is also seen to be annoyed by Four and X arguing over who said a bad joke, and gets more annoyed as the argument goes on.
