The Reveal is the 17th episode of Battle for Dream Island. It was released on May 1, 2011. In this episode, the contestants pair up in groups of two for the challenge, and if a group doesn't finish before sundown, they receive a penalty.
Before the intro
The episode starts with Leafy giving a friendly greeting to Bubble. Leafy explains that since Bubble is so wonderful, she wants to give her a gift, Bubble comments on it as the nicest thing anyone has ever done for her. Pencil exclaims that it might be a trap, but Bubble ignores her, opening the present and finding spring shoes in them. Bubble thanks Leafy and starts to play with them. Pencil becomes jealous and asks Leafy to give her a present too. Leafy does not have another pair, so she takes Bubble's and gives them to Pencil, which results in Bubble falling to the ground and popping. Later, Leafy gives another pair of spring shoes to Ice Cube. On-screen, it shows she falls to the ground, following with Ice Cube getting stuck on her. Bubble is recovered in the Bubble Recovery Center and believes that Ice Cube and Pencil stole her springy shoes and takes them back, ending up with two pairs of shoes.
Cake at Stake
During Cake at Stake, all nine of the contestants except Firey are up for elimination. The Announcer reveals that there is a large crowd watching them again. He also reveals that instead of a cake, he has 8 knives. Tennis Ball comments that maybe he doesn't want to be safe.
288 people voted on who to be eliminated. Firey receives the first knife since he had immunity. He jumps over it, resulting in the knife hitting a tree. Ice Cube receives the lowest with five votes. She jumps over the knife, making it hit another tree. Bubble and Leafy are the next to get knives with seven and ten votes respectively. They both jump over their knives which hit a bush. Spongy is the next one safe with 28 votes. Due to his large body, he is hit by a knife. Announcer reveals that on April 1st, 2011, history was made. A YouTuber named englishcreamcakes cast the first elimination vote for Pencil. Pencil reacts to it, only to find out she got 37 more votes, resulting in 38 votes. However, she is still safe. A knife is thrown at her, which misses. She feels saddened as she expected 38 fewer votes. The bottom three are revealed, with Tennis Ball, Blocky and Rocky. Rocky has the least number of votes out of them. The Announcer throws a knife at him, only for Rocky to use his barfing skills to destroy the knife. Tennis Ball is also safe, who screams as the knife approaches him in slow motion, but the camera cuts away before it hits him. To Blocky's horror, he receives 112 votes, the highest as of this episode. Blocky was horrified as he says that the Announcer can't eliminate him because he's "the star of the show". A flashback of episode 4 occurs with Blocky being eliminated the first time. Then, he is sent to the TLC again. The Announcer wants to take some time to remember Blocky's elimination. Pencil and Leafy argue that they shouldn't, resulting in him changing his mind.
The 17th contest is a frisbee throwing contest. Contestants have to pair up in this challenge. Pencil pairs up with Bubble, which frustrates Ice Cube. Leafy invites her to be her partner for the challenge. Ice Cube thinks that Pencil doesn't want her in her alliance, to which Pencil reassures her she is. Ice Cube still kicks Pencil in revenge. Rocky goes with Spongy, so Firey is left with Tennis Ball. The Announcer reveals that if they do not finish before sunset, they will receive a penalty. Tennis Ball throws the first Frisbee, but it only gets about halfway across, to which he apologizes for his weak toss. Leafy throws the second frisbee saying she wants to be first. The frisbee shatters Ice Cube. Pencil and Bubble are the first to successfully catch a frisbee, with Spongy and Rocky right behind. Firey tells Tennis Ball to throw harder. He does so, and Firey catches it with his tongue and throws it back to Tennis Ball, bringing them into 1st place. However, Firey's saliva is too sticky, so the frisbee gets stuck to Tennis Ball's foot. Meanwhile, it shows Leafy at the Ice Cube Recovery Center 2.0, a much harder one. She has to go through tons of questions to get the correct Ice Cube. Spongy and Rocky get their second throw done while Firey is encouraging Tennis Ball to hurry up. Pencil yells "Alliance Power!" as Bubble catches the frisbee. Tennis Ball is still trying to get the frisbee off his foot while Leafy is still answering the questions at the ICRC. Pencil and Bubble are the first to finish, with Spongy and Rocky right behind. The sun starts to go down. Firey then realizes that he can get another frisbee. Tennis Ball catches it with his other foot as they finish. Leafy is on the last question. Ice Cube is re-created. Leafy tells Ice Cube to catch the frisbee, which shatters Ice Cube once again as the sun fully goes down. Leafy and non-existent Ice Cube are told they will receive a penalty.
The Announcer instantly switches the scene to the next morning (it's a short night), and the points are given to the teams. Ice Cube receives a reward for having the least amount of votes, which turns out to be 125 points. Since Pencil and Bubble won the challenge, they got their prize first, which was 200 points. Spongy and Rocky got 100, while Tennis Ball and Firey get a mere 15, much to Tennis Ball's dismay. There is an ad break with Blocky's Funny Doings International with Firey and his recovery center suspended above a lake. The idea was by Simondomino and Geriolah7. Simondomino and Geriolah7 are also top recommenders. Leafy and Ice Cube get worried about their penalty. When she opens it up, it's -1000 points. Everyone claps and applauds. Afterward, the scoreboard is updated.
