"Lofty" is the eleventh episode of Battle for Dream Island, and the last episode before the merge occurred. It was released on November 1, 2010.
Before the intro
Golf Ball and Tennis Ball are seen arguing which one of them a certain cloud looks like, while Firey was barfed on by Rocky. When Coiny laughs at the incident, Firey proceeds to fight with Coiny. Golf Ball mentions that their fighting is pointless, but the two defend themselves by saying the other is a jerk.
After the intro
Golf Ball then notices Announcer, and wonders what he's doing. Announcer then tells them that Another Name lost last episode and Cake at stake starts.
Cake at Stake
While Another Name walks to the Cake at Stake area, many objects from the other teams laugh at them. During Cake at Stake, Announcer asked if Golf Ball or Firey wanted to use their Win Token. Firey didn't, but Golf Ball did, having only half of her votes being counted.
There were 37 votes. TB was safe with 2 votes. Firey got 3 votes and Coiny got 5. Golf Ball and Rocky got 12 and 15 votes, respectively. When TB was told he was safe, Announcer says that the cake was too expensive, so he gave the objects imaginary cake. Even with her Win Token, Golf Ball and Rocky were the two with the highest votes. The Squishy Cherries then had to pick one of them to go onto their team. By a unanimous decision, Rocky was fully chosen, and Golf Ball was sent to the TLC.
|Icon||Contestant||Votes||WT||Total votes||Vote changes|
|Tennis Ball||2||No||3||1 more than last time|
|Firey||3||No||5||2 more than last time|
|12(6)||Yes||13||11 more than last time|
|Rocky||15||No||15||15 more than last time|
For the first part of the challenge, the Announcer told the contestants to climb up a flight of stairs, which Tennis Ball fell off of. Announcer then had the contestants tie a balloon around their waists, then he made the ground disappear. Firey screamed due his fear of heights which caused Coiny to laugh. After the Announcer explained the rules, the game starts.
The Grapes planned to attack the Cherries first because they have seven people, thus being a bigger threat. Blocky then picks up three nails up and throw them at the rival team. Pencil does the same, and they collide in midair before falling down. Pen accidentally pops Bubble's balloon. Firey gets slapped by Coiny, thus guiding his balloon to a nail held by Blocky, and Coiny shatters Ice Cube with a nail, commenting that he's an "ice cold killer". Snowball ends up popping Pencil's balloon because his team's balloon color is pink as opposed to red. Eraser then explained that pink is manly. The Speaker then says that red balloons were too expensive.
When Firey hits the ground, he accidentally lights Bomby's fuse. Coiny attempts to use the basket of nails as a source of protection from the nail that Blocky threw, but both his and the basket's balloons both get popped by a nail, resulting in Another Name losing again. Coiny falls, and Bomby suddenly explodes. The remaining Grapes (Leafy and Blocky) then improvise in popping balloons, whether it's biting SB's balloon (by Blocky), squeezing Eraser's balloon (by Leafy), and making Rocky's balloon disappear by saying "poof" (by Blocky). The Grapes win the challenge, and Another Name goes to Cake at Stake again.
