|“||We had to sell it because of budget cuts.||”|
— Announcer, Multiple occasions
The Announcer is the host of Battle for Dream Island, the secret host of Battle for Dream Island Again, and the unseen antagonist and host of Battle for BFB from episodes 28 to 30. He debuted in the first episode after falling out of the sky to announce Dream Island's existence. He speaks with an artificial voice from AT&T's Natural Voices Text-to-Speech demo as Mike, which can be found here.
The Announcer appears to be a speaker box. His cone and gasket are light grey, and his main body is dark grey.
- Announcer has bevel edges.
- Announcer's previously bevel edges are changed to miter.
- Announcer gets damaged.
- Announcer is repaired.
The Announcer seems to be mature and reserved, often keeping calm and collected, partially because he is a robot. Despite his good nature, he does have moments of being unfair towards others, like not caring that he sold Dream Island to Leafy, and even hides this information from Bubble when she asks about it.
He's also shown to have a sense of humor when it's at the contestants' expense. For example, he laughed before dropping water balloons on the contestants in the ladder race. He laughed at Woody when he was drowning in bread. He bought the BFDI finalists recovery centers just so that he could kill them repeatedly. According to the "Battle for Dream Island: Official Character Guide", the Announcer calls Needle "Needy" on purpose, despite knowing she despises it when someone calls her that nickname.
The Announcer also has a more insidious side to him. In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 2", he accidentally revealed that he was responsible for the bugs in front of Bubble, who began to question him angrily. In response, he popped her, stating that he must keep his secrets. This side of him is seen again in "B.F.B. = Back From Beginning" when Taco finds out that the Announcer was spending the show's budget quite recklessly. She announces that she will tell X, and the Announcer immediately obliterates her with the Emergency Button, and he is satisfied with her death.
Adding on to this insidious side is the Announcer's greed that becomes even more apparent in "SOS (Save Our Show)". He intentionally exploited the show’s budget to have the entire series erased and forgotten just to keep the BFDI to himself. This act shows the Announcer as being sociopathic, considering how he stalked the show from behind the scenes to plan its overthrow. When he relays this information to Taco, he shows little, if any, remorse for his actions. The conversation paints him as one of the darkest and most influential characters of the entire series; he shows the ability to almost "destroy" the series.

Battle for Dream Island
In "Take the Plunge: Part 1", Announcer is the last object introduced. He falls from the sky after Eraser says he would do anything to get away from Golf Ball, Flower, Woody, or Spongy. He then tells Eraser that he's in luck because they're building an island of luxury called "Dream Island", which includes a 5-star hotel, 6 restaurants, robot servants, a casino, and the winner gets to decide who gets to comes on and who doesn't. Eraser asks how much it costs, but Announcer informs him it doesn't even cost a penny. Eraser says he'll take it, but the Announcer says that the others would want it to, so therefore it should be settled with a contest.
After the intro, Announcer gets the 20 contestants to stand on a wooden balance beam. The last two contestants standing win. At the end of the contest, Pin and Leafy are the only two standing. He states that they both win the challenge and they'll pick their teams for a much larger, longer battle.
In "Take the Plunge: Part 2", since everybody was arguing about what the team names should be, he decides to name the teams himself, naming Pin's team "the Squishy Cherries" and Leafy's team "the Squashy Grapes". Later, he announces that the challenge is to race across the Goiky Canal. When the challenge ends, he announces that the Squishy Cherries are the winners for being the ones who broke the ribbon.
In "Barriers and Pitfalls", the Announcer tells Pin that since she was the only one to break the ribbon in the previous episode, she did better than the rest and won a Win Token. He then announces Cake at Stake, but not before they get all of the other contestants. He tells them not to worry about being eliminated, since they would be treated with TLC. He then starts declaring people who got zero votes and starts throwing pieces of cake onto them, however the throwing speed was up too high, and the cakes splattered in their faces. After Coiny is declared safe, the Announcer realizes that he should turn down the throwing speed of the tosser. He then announces that Snowball is safe at zero votes, Tennis Ball is safe at one vote, and that "Sam" is too, however he is confused as to who Sam is.
When Flower threatens to crush him with her Announcer Crusher if she got eliminated, the Announcer tells her it's too bad for him. Flower presses the button out of anger and activates the Announcer Crusher, but the hammer of the announcer crusher hits Golf Ball first, cracking it and causing an explosion. The explosion causes Flower to be flung to the TLC.
After Cake at Stake is over, the Announcer announces the next contest, but before the 'O' in 'GO' appears on the screen, he has to say something else. He tells the Cherries that if they do not find their missing team member within the next hour, their team automatically loses. He then tells the 'O' to come over, and is not seen for the rest of the episode until the end.
In "Are You Smarter Than a Snowball?", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with the Squishy Cherries with Key Lime Pie, which only Pen and Eraser seem to like. Spongy gets eliminated, so the Announcer uses the untested Sender Scoop Thrower to send him to the TLC, but he ends up landing on Bubble instead. The Announcer says that the next contest is a test of memory and basic knowledge and updates the Grapes by telling them that an Ice Cube Recovery Center Creator is in the process of making an Ice Cube Recovery Center. At one point during the challenge, Blocky steals the test answers when the Announcer isn't paying attention. When the challenge ends, the Announcer only gets 3 tests from both teams. After noticing Pen and Blocky cheated, he sets their scores to zero so the Grapes win.
In "Sweet Tooth", Leafy attempts to dismantle the Announcer with a hammer but misses. The Announcer then does Cake at Stake with the Cherries with a chunk of ice. After eliminating Blocky, the Announcer adds an update on Golf Ball's chances of winning, and almost plays the intro a second time. The contest is to make a cake. The Announcer decides to make Flower and Magical Die of Judgment the other judges. The Announcer gives Bubble an 8/10 for her strawberry cake. Coiny's cake gets a 2/10 since he finds dirt unsafe. Eraser gets 7/10 since it was the same cake as Bubble. Firey gets a 10/10 for baking his cake without an oven. The Announcer eats Golf Ball's entire cake and gives it a zero for there being dirt in the cake and her lying about it. Leafy gets 4/10 since it was yet another strawberry cake. After judging is over, the Cherries are in the lead and win the first contest. The next contest is to eat 100 chocolate balls, which the Grapes win, so they need a tiebreaker. The Announcer says that who ever rips their team necktie wins and also seems to find the tiebreaker pun funny. The Grapes win when Snowball rips the tie.
In "Bridge Crossing", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with the Cherries again. Woody is eliminated and the Announcer says that they should send him to the TLC. Pen notices that the Announcer has been saying "the" TLC as if it were an object. The Announcer clarifies that TLC means Tiny Loser Chamber and says "Duh, of course it's an object". The next contest is to cross a bridge, however both of the bridges are destroyed before anyone could cross it so they need another tiebreaker. The Announcer brings back the necktie tiebreaker again, with Snowball once again ripping it for his team.
In "Power of Three", the Announcer says they should Cake at Stake. Pencil says she doesn't like Cake at Stake, so the Announcer suggests they take a shortcut and eliminate her immediately. Pencil now says she likes Cake at Stake, satisfying the Announcer. The Announcer mocks the Cherries for being there for the 4th time in a row and shows that he got 6 cupcakes since regular cake was too expensive. The votes drop from 14 to 13, which upsets the Announcer greatly. Pin gets eliminated and tries to use her Win Token, but the Announcer says it's too late and flings her away. For the contest, the Announcer temporarily splits the teams for the next challenge, which is to race through 3 islands. During the race to island 1, the Announcer tells Snowball to get Golf Ball or else he'll eliminate him. For the rest of the contest, whenever a team reaches a new island, text appears with the Announcer explaining what the objective is to get through it. The Announcer is waiting for the contestants on island 3 in a room and flings away the first 4 teams that arrive safely.
In "Puzzling Mysteries", the Announcer randomly falls on Bubble to announce that it's time for Cake at Stake for the losing team. They get 18 votes which the Announcer says is a record high. Needle says she'll use her Win Token so the Announcer uses a magnet to shake it out of her. When the Announcer tries to give the results, he notices that Coiny never talks during his Cake at Stakes and just contributes to the silence. Coiny says that is indeed what he's been doing and shushes the Announcer whenever he tries to talk. The Announcer then says "Needy" next to Coiny, getting him slapped away by Needle. The Announcer reveals that Needle is out even with the use of her Win Token. He flings her into the TLC, noticing that it won't close all the way. Pencil explains that the carrying capacity is 6 and that there are 6 people inside, along with Spongy who is big. Since there is no room to eliminate a player, the Announcer makes it so the winning team chooses someone from the winning team. The Announcer then traps everyone in a room and tells them that the challenge is to solve a jigsaw puzzle in order to be freed. The Grapes win and start walking towards the exit until the Announcer stops them, reminding them to pick a contestant from the Cherries. The Announcer then says that there is no voting in this episode, but that the next episode will.
In "Cycle of Life", Pen tells the Announcer that his team finally solved the jigsaw puzzle. The Announcer later cuts into the alliance's discussion on their vote counts, popping Bubble just as she was about to mention her vote status. He says he's been voted for once even though he shouldn't have been. The Announcer tells everyone that the next contest is a relay race. After some arguments from the contestants on the unfairness, as a result of the different team sizes, the Announcer has the grapes spin a wheel to decide who will run the race for their team, as suggested by Bubble. After the racers are selected, the Announcer adds that they have to carry the person who will run the race after them. The challenge ends with the Grapes winning once again and the Announcer tells them that their prize is an eliminated contestant.
In "Insectophobe's Nightmare", the Announcer interrupts Coiny and Snowball's conversation to tell them that they're about to find out who rejoins. The Announcer does Cake at Stake with the eliminated contestants and Blocky rejoins. He then gives the final 15 BFDI posters as a prize for getting this far. The Announcer has the Squashy Grapes split into two teams to make two teams of five and chooses Leafy and Rocky to pick the teams. After the teams are picked out, the Announcer explains that two people will be voted off the losing team. The winning team will choose one of them for their team, while nothing happens to the middle team. As the Announcer gets ready to announce the ninth contest, Eraser interrupts, making the Announcer stare silently at him for a bit. He continues announcing that the ninth contest is a six-legged race. The Squashy Grapes lose, so the Announcer tells the viewers to vote someone off Ice Cube's team.
In "Crybaby!", the Announcer meets the Squashy Grapes at the top of a cliff and tells them where to go for Cake at Stake. It's revealed that he had the Cake at Stake area renovated when they arrive. Snowball and Teardrop have the most votes so the Announcer has the Cherries choose between the two of the. The contest is a crying contest, but the Announcer counts it as a tie when every team is able to produce water. So the tiebreaker is a skiing contest. The Squashy Grapes place second, but the Announcer can't tell if the Cherries or Another Name is first or last due to their teams being covered in snowballs. The last tiebreaker is a handstand contest, which the Cherries win. Eraser is the only one still standing after Rocky barfs at his team and the Announcer gives him his second Win Token.
In "Lofty", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Another Name. Golf Ball uses her Win Token but is still in the top two. For the challenge to start, the Announcer has everyone climb up a long flight of stairs. The contest is to stay up in the air the longest, and they can use nails to throw at others. Another Name loses again.
In "A Leg Up in the Race", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Another Game again, where only Firey is safe. After Coiny is eliminated, the Announcer gives the now merged contestants BFDI DDSs' as a prize. The contest is to climb ladders, which the Announcer attempts to make difficult by dropping water balloons on the contestants. Afterwards, the Announcer adds points to the game and establishes how many each contestant has based on their Win Tokens, how well they did in the contest, and previous votes.
In "Don't Lose Your Marbles", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Snowball, Bubble, Rocky, and Tennis Ball. He once again renovated the Cake at Stake place, and they don't like it until he says they were supposed to. Snowball gets eliminated, so he angrily hits the Announcer. The Announcer flies into a slingshot, flinging him right back into Snowball, sending him flying to the TLC. The challenge is to bring the Announcer a red ball, and the Announcer gives the contestants points based on the order that they turned in the balls, while also giving ten point penalties to whoever brings him a maroon ball.
In "Half a Loaf Is Better Than None", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with fruit cake, a choice that gets criticism from some of the contestants. Match is eliminated and the Announcer uses the Laser Powered Teleportation Device to send her to the TLC, which Pencil thought killed her. He gives the final 10 half a pair of scissors as a prize for reaching the halfway mark. He then reveals that someone will rejoin. The eliminated contestants have to grab as much bread as possible before the timer is out. Spongy ends up winning. Afterwards, the Announcer gives the contestants a chance at bonus points by getting his marble collection from a vat of hydrochloric acid, which Tennis Ball. The Announcer then gives the armless contestants sympathy points since they're at a disadvantage. The challenge is to jump over hurdles, gaining more points with every jump while also losing if they get knocked off.
In "Vomitaco", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Ice Cube, Leafy, Eraser, and Firey. After Eraser is eliminated, he gives the final 10 another half of a pair of scissors. Then he makes the contestants guess what was under a blanket, which Firey happens to correctly guess is a barf bag and a taco. After all the contestants choose whether they participate in the barf bag contest or the taco contest, the Announcer starts with the barf bag contest. The contest is to stay on their island for as long as possible. After it was finished, Announcer starts the taco contest, which is to make the best taco using the provided ingredients. He then sends the tacos to the eliminated contestants so they could rate them.
In "Bowling, Now with Explosions!", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Rocky, Bubble, and Pen. After Pen is eliminated, Announcer starts the bowling contest. He disqualifies armless people since they can't bowl, and makes the remaining contestants go in alphabetical order. After all of them finished bowling, the Announcer revealed that they could subtract 30 points from other contestants for every pin they knock down. When it is done, Announcer puts everyone up for elimination except for Firey.
In "The Reveal", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with everyone except for Firey. After Blocky is eliminated, Announcer suggests that they take some time to commemorate his elimination, but Pencil and Leafy argue against that, changing his mind. Announcer announces the next contest, which is to throw Frisbees. He asks the contestants to pair up and explains that they have to get three successful catches or they will receive a penalty. After announcing the contestants' current scores, Tennis Ball, Ice Cube, and Leafy are up for elimination. Announcer announces that the contestants will decide who will be eliminated and that one recommended character will join the game.
In "Reveal Novum", before the elimination, Announcer barges in the Tiny Loser Chamber to tell the eliminated contestants to stop talking about escaping. After the intro, the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Tennis Ball, Ice Cube, Leafy. After all the contestants voted, Leafy and Tennis Ball have a tiebreaker. Leafy wins the tiebreaker, so Tennis Ball is eliminated. The Announcer then does Cake at Stake again with the recommended characters. David joins the game. Announcer downgrades the scoreboard, which can only hold two-digit numbers, due to budget cuts. Announcer announces that the 18th contest is a staring contest. At the end of the contest, Spongy, Firey, and Pencil are up for elimination.
In "Rescission", the Announcer does Cake at Stake with Spongy, Firey, and Pencil. After eliminating Pencil, the Announcer rewards the remaining contestants with a teddy bear. The contest is a unicycle race. After Leafy and Ice Cube go the wrong way, Announcer points out the right way. Announcer tells Bubble that she could choose a fourth person to be safe, which turns out to be Leafy. David, Spongy and Ice Cube are up for elimination. In the stinger, the Announcer starts to levitate before falling back to the ground.
In "Gardening Hero", the Announcer has everyone sent up to space due to budget cuts. Despite the change in scenery he insists the game is still the same and that they'll be doing Cake at Stake. Announcer does Cake at Stake with David, Spongy, and Ice Cube. Announcer explains that there are no drumrolls due to budget cuts. David ends up having the most votes, so Announcer eliminated him with the Double Teleportation Device. Then, the Announcer stops the second intro from playing because they already played the intro, but Leafy insists on playing it again, causing the intro to play again.
After the elimination, Announcer wants to befriend Leafy and Firey. However, he gets rejected because he is not considered a 'good person'. The Announcer gives everyone immunity, but explains that they could lose it by getting hit with an asteroid, and getting abducted by aliens. The contest is to get into the spaceship. Firey cannot get into the spaceship, so Announcer says that if he gets hit by anything, he loses his immunity. Later, he states that falling into the black hole will also cause contestants to lose immunity. Announcer then sells the black hole and Firey's spaceship due to budget cuts. At the end of the contest, Bubbles wins immunity and the Announcer recovers the dead contestants. The Announcer tells Bubble that she can choose another person to be safe, and she picks Leafy again. Ice Cube, Rocky, Spongy, and Firey are up for elimination, but the eliminated contestants will vote for them to be eliminated. Meanwhile, the Announcer revealed a second rejoin of BFDI, which the voters will vote for who should rejoin. In the stinger, Announcer explains that the contestants could survive in space due to budget cuts.
In "The Glistening", Announcer asks the contestants if they want to go back to Earth. When everyone raises their hand, Announcer tries to convince them to see the Orion Nebula, but Bubble and Leafy insist that going back to Earth is better. The Announcer reveals that they cannot go back due to the only spaceship running out of fuel. He goes on to explain that the spaceship runs on "big yellow squishy" contestants. At Cake at Stake, Announcer lets the eliminated contestants vote for either Spongy, Rocky, Ice Cube, or Firey. Ice Cube is eliminated so Announcer uses the "Quadruple Laser-powered Teleportation Device" on her. Then, Announcer does Cake at Stake with the eliminated contestants. Flower rejoins the game so he gives her a pizza. The contest is to jump the furthest. Announcer gives Leafy immunity for winning, but she passes it off to Spongy.
In "Don't Pierce My Flesh", the Announcer gets crushed by Spongy and is absent for the rest of the episode. Firey and Flower build their own Speaker Boxes to take his place in the meantime.
In "Hurtful!", Announcer comes back during Cake at Stake. He confronts Firey Speaker Box for being an impostor. After Firey Speaker Box explains that he is his replacement, more speaker boxes come to Cake at Stake, making Announcer uncomfortable. Announcer cuts the Cheese Orb into 4 pieces, much to Leafy and Firey's shock. After eliminating Spongy, Announcer starts the last contest, which is a combination of all the previous contests. Announcer gives Bubble immunity for completing the contest and puts Firey, Flower, and Leafy up for elimination. He also gives Firey a penalty for dying the most. In the stinger, Firey realizes that since the Announcer has a recovery center, they can kill him as much as they want, and he'll still come back to give them Dream Island. The contestants then proceed to kill the Announcer numerous times.
In "Insectophobe's Nightmare 2", the Announcer does Cake at Stake. Firey asks where Leafy is, and Announcer replies that she died and that he sold all the recovery centers due to budget cuts. Firey is greatly upset and bets his life savings that the Announcer was lying. Announcer accepts the bet and confesses that he actually sold the recovery centers. Announcer explains that BFDI will be canceled if the votes go down. After the advertisement, it is shown that there are only 735 votes, which means BFDI is canceled. Flower becomes furious and throws something at the Announcer, which is revealed to be bug eggs. To avoid being eaten alive, Announcer runs away with the remaining contestants. After Firey is eaten, Announcer confesses that the bugs were built to be strong. After realizing his slip-up, Announcer kills Bubble. After deleting the bugs, Announcer does not know what to do, until he notices David is still alive. Announcer realizes he has a David Cloner, and does Cake at Stake with David Clones disguised as the remaining contestants. Right after Flower was declared to be eliminated, everyone comes back to normal, startling Announcer. After Leafy explained that they faked their deaths, Announcer shows that Flower is the first and last person to be eliminated on BFDI, and proceeds to eliminate her. Announcer eventually teleports Flower to the TLC after failing three times. At the end of the episode, Announcer tells the viewers to vote for Leafy, Firey, or Bubble to win BFDI.
In the stinger, Announcer asks the finalists what kind of reward they would like, which could be anything. Announcer grants Leafy's wish for world peace instantly because he thinks the world is peaceful enough. Bubble wants Yoylecake but Announcer denied it due to budget cuts. Firey wants his life earnings back. Announcer denied his request because he spent it on their new recovery centers. Firey immediately figures that he didn't do this because he cares about them, to which Announcer responds by killing all three of them. He is suddenly crushed out of nowhere. Afterwards, he and the finalists kill each other repeatedly.
In "Return of the Hang Glider", at night the Announcer shows the contestants the grand cake that the winner will get. The next day, the Announcer does Cake at Stake and says that he'll be releasing the eliminated contestants. Firey and Leafy attempt to stop him but he doesn't see any reason not to and frees them, only for Flower to bite him. The damage causes him to be unable to pronounce the 'k' sound for the rest of the episode. Before announcing the winner, the Announcer has the eliminated pick who they would like to win, and Leafy gets the most. Bubble got the least votes to win and gets a cashew as a runner up prize. Leafy gets the second most so Firey wins. The Announcer then thanks the voters for voting and then afterwards tells Firey to pick who's allowed on the island. Firey ends up picking everyone except Leafy so she calls the Announcer to buy Dream Island. She gives him a paper slip with a large number, so he gives her ownership of Dream Island. Firey then realizes his island is missing and the Announcer reveals that he sold it. The contestants attempt to ask who he sold it to but he won't tell them. Later, some speaker boxes appear out of a broken UFO. One states that their campaign was unsuccessful and that it's time to go. The Announcer attempts to say something, and another speaker box says they can always return. The UFO instantly fixes itself and the Announcer blasts off into space with the other speakers.
Battle for Dream Island Again
In "The Long-lost Yoyle City", he can be briefly seen along with the contestants at the summit of Yoyle Mountain, right before they were abruptly pushed off of it.
In "SOS (Save Our Show)", all these cameos were retroactively confirmed to be him spying on the BFDIA contestants in hopes that the season doesn't descend into chaos.
Battle for BFDI
He doesn't appear at the beginning of Battle for BFDI due to it having two new hosts (Four and X), but he was mentioned by Pin in "Why Would You Do This on a Swingset", who said she'd prefer him over the new hosts. In the same episode, the Announcer appears on Barf Bag's board.
In "The Four is Lava", the Announcer made a cameo in Book's subconscious when Four gave her a happy thought. In it, the events where Book is eliminated in "Reveal Novum" are seen, except after Book states the definition of her inside her dictionary, Announcer questions his decision after Book says it, and decides to give Book (or Dictionary at the time) Dream Island in a similar fashion to TV's Wishes and Dreams: Episode 1.
Battle for BFB
In "Who Stole Donut's Diary?", Firey angrily calls out Leafy for going straight to the Announcer to buy Dream Island when they could've just talked about her exclusion from the island later.
In "The Hidden Contestant", the Announcer is shown in a flashback to before the events of "Sweet Tooth" where Profily is shown to have been how the Announcer got the idea to use literal ties in a tiebreaker. He's then shown in another flashback to "Return of the Hang Glider" with Profily being in the finale. The Announcer tells them that they feel just short of the win before admitting he was joking. The Announcer then tells Profily that they got zero votes.
In "Uprooting Everything", during the post-credits scene, Leafy and Flower hear a sound. This sound is the same sound that plays in "Rescission" during the post-credits scene when the Announcer rises into the sky. It was confirmed that this sound was the Announcer, because in the next episode, the Announcer returns.
In "B.F.B. = Back From Beginning", the Announcer fully returns to BFB and starts the intro. Leafy is happy to see him again and asks where he has been. The Announcer says they can talk about that later and that he wants to know what happened to his show. Four says they took it over in his absence and proudly states they did a good job. The Announcer say they're wrong, and X tells him to name one thing they did badly. The Announcer is able to name multiple things however. The Announcer then takes back full hosting privileges and tries to start Cake at Stake with the final four. Four angrily calls out the Announcer for taking his show back and throws him away. He is flung back by Slingshot and tells Four not to do that again. Four talks with X about how they can get rid of the Announcer. X first tells him to leave and calls him a dork, and immediately apologizes for calling him that. Announcer simply refuses and says he's staying. Four and X then try to use Purple Face to get rid of the Announcer. Purple Face attempts to do so with a freestyle wrap, but the Announcer flings him away, while showing off to Four how easy it was to get rid of him. Four says it doesn't matter cause the contestants have grown closer with them, but the contestants all prefer the Announcer. After Four sinks into the desert, the Announcer tells the final four to form a team, as he wants to feel more included in the season. Afterwards, he sings a rap song to replace the Cake at Stake theme song, even with breakdancing and all.
Leafy ends up getting eliminated and dreads having to go into the BRB. Announcer says she won't have to since they'll need the eliminated contestants for the challenge. He approaches X and asks them to snap everyone back. When X obliges, he pats them on the head. Like BFDI, the Announcer makes the last contest a combination of the previous ones. The Announcer then asks X if they can recover the contestants if they die and he obliges since he asked nicely. With that taken care of, the Announcer spends the show’s massive budget on props and is able to create a replica of every challenge from BFB. In the jawbreaker challenge, the Announcer tells Flower that Firey is inside hers, making her lick with more urgency. Announcer occupies the BFB 8 challenge. He starts by asking Teardrop how he likes to experience nature. She grows nervous as she's incapable of saying anything, but the Announcer reveals she got it right, in complete silence. Flower arrives next and correctly answers that his favorite number is 5. The Announcer gives Gelatin a tougher time with this challenge, as his favorite number keeps changing. He eventually gives Gelatin a new question, "Am I gray?". Gelatin correctly answers that he is and gets to move on. The Announcer waits on top of the World's Largest Oven oven for the winner and congratulates Flower for winning immunity into the final two. He then gives Gelatin and Teardrop a short moment each to explain why they should stay before putting them up for elimination.
In the stinger, the Announcer is busy spending money from the show's budget. Taco asks him about this and he says they have so much that it doesn't matter, and demonstrates by giving Flower 50,000 dollars. Taco claims that he's just being reckless with the budget now and says that she's going to tell X, but the Announcer obliterates her with a laser.
In "SOS (Save Our Show)", Taco spends the beginning of the episode spying on the Announcer as he keeps blowing the budget, along with also wanting to know why he's chosen now to come back after nine years. The Announcer notices her though, referring to her as "Tacster". The Announcer gives the final three a remodeled version of Four's bus, now made entirely from gold, which he spent $3,000,000 on. He then does Cake at Stake with an overly expensive drum roll and Teardrop is eliminated. He states that she was always his favorite and gives her a medal. He then proceeds to give himself, Bubble, and Profily different medals. Profily asks what's happening with the game and the Announcer says that BFB is cancelled. Due to him spending too much of the budget, BFB is unable to continue, so he leaves.
Later, Announcer is shown to still be on earth as Taco is still watching him. The Announcer appears to be digging for something that he can't find. He eventually finds the right spot and digs out the BFDI and BFB. Taco catches him and demands to know what's going on. He attempts to zap her again but she broke the laser. After failing to lie his way out of having to come clean to Taco, he decides to tell her everything.
After BFDI ended, the Announcer got himself fixed and wanted BFDI to continue, and returned back to earth. He says that he got in contact with TV to collect the votes for another season and laid out the rules for the new season. He also created the challenge wheel. However, he had to keep spending on prizes such as Puffball's new speaker box and later a Hand Powered Recovery Center due to the excessive deaths in BFDIA. During the entire season, he managed to stay pretty incognito, even after getting caught by Pencil as he used her alliance's old trick of pretending to be a tree. BFDIA was then cancelled so he returned home, when he was suddenly caught off guard by another season of BFDI. He's also shown to be resentful towards Four and X for stealing his show, and his BFDI. The Announcer decided to wait until the cast dwindled to return, which didn't take long as Two took more than half of the remaining contestants. The final four felt like the right time to him, as he barely got any push back. With all of that, BFB is cancelled and he has his BFDI back for good.
The scenery then drops in quality due to the budget getting even lower and Taco rushes to tell the rest of the BFB cast. The Announcer sarcastically wishes her luck. The show's budget is eventually saved thanks to Flower giving up her $50,000. The Announcer reappears, acting somewhat rudely toward's the show's continuation, and tells the viewers to vote who should win.
In "Chapter Complete", Announcer is first seen talking to Bubble with the Grand Cake on a projector, asking if the cake isn't as bad as it was in BFDI 25. When Bubble says the cake is even worse, Announcer brushes it off by saying she is in denial. Later, while Gelatin is talking, Announcer cuts him off by saying that the big event is that the finale has begun. When Flower tries to continue what Gelatin wanted to say, Announcer tells her to be quiet, and the intro plays.
During Cake at Stake, Announcer says that there is a large crowd, which then appears to just be one person. Announcer states that he must have forgotten to send out invitations. Announcer reminds everyone that the winner of BFB will receive three prizes, the first being the Grand Cake. Flower and Gelatin respond in an unsure tone, which Announcer replies by stating that he spent all day on it. The second prize is the BFB, which leads to Gelatin beatboxing in front of it again. The third prize, of which Announcer didn't want to give, was the BFDI. Then, Announcer asks the previously eliminated contestants who they would want to win. Blocky responds by saying he wanted to win. Announcer replied by saying that he wasn't in the final two. Blocky states that he was aware, of which lead to Announcer asking why he said it. Blocky replied by saying he simply wanted to fudge the rules, but Announcer cuts him off by telling him to stop talking. While the eliminated contestants are voting, Spongy wants to change his answer, but Announcer tells Spongy he cannot. Blocky whispers to Announcer that he actually votes for Flower and wants it to be a secret, but Announcer pulls out a megaphone and states Blocky's vote. Announcer asks Teardrop if she will vote, which is followed by Teardrop pointing at Gelatin. The votes are revealed to be a tie of 7 votes for both Flower and Gelatin. Announcer states that they will need a drumroll for the viewer votes. Birthday Cake tries to give one, before the Sender Scoop Thrower throws them off. Announcer instead asks the eliminated contestants to give a drumroll. When the votes are in, Announcer places a piece of paper over Gelatin's votes, reading 48,890, remarking that it was a close vote. After Gelatin tears off the sheet, Announcer says that he was trying to preserve Gelatin's feelings. Announcer tells Flower that she won with a total of 48,891 votes, meaning that she won BFB.
After Ruby licks the BFB, Announcer tells her to stop putting condiments on the prize. Announcer then gives Flower the Grand Cake, saying that she may put condiments on the cake. Announcer also gives Flower the BFB. In Flower's happy thought, Announcer is seen saying that Gelatin won BFB, and giving Gelatin the BFB. Despite not wanting to, Announcer gives Flower the BFDI. Before Flower can actually grab the BFDI, Purple Face steals it, knocking both Announcer and Flower out of the way. Announcer chases after Flower and Purple Face, saying that the BFDI is his. On the bus, whilst everyone is trying to get the BFDI, Announcer says that he kind of wishes Purple Face was back in his box. Later, Announcer tries taking it for himself, stating that it is his show. After Firey says that the world was turned sideways, Announcer informs everyone that the bus is dangling from a cliff. While the majority of the people on the bus escape, Announcer stays with Flower and Purple Face, still fighting for it, saying that he has waited years to get it back. Although Purple Face argues that Announcer could make another copy, Announcer counters by stating that it is the only remaining copy of the show. After Purple Face pulls out a hand, Announcer tells him that the hand gag is also his. When Purple Face is finally admitting to his wrong-doings, Announcer says that Purple Face has a strange definition of the word "maybe". After Purple Face leaves, Announcer says that he and Flower can continue arguing, but admits that it isn't fair due to Flower winning it. Flower states that she didn't want it anymore and let Announcer have it, leading to the two getting onto the cliff.
Later, Four thanks Announcer for taking care of the end of the season, apologizing for taking the show. Announcer understands and says that without Four, there might not have been another season, nor would he have the original seasons backed up. When Four questions if Purple Face hosted BFB 29, Announcer says that Purple Face saved the season after Announcer almost got the show canceled. In the epilogue, Announcer can be seen discussing a next season with Four, X, and Purple Face.
