Don't you think we're taking this too far?

Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know is the first episode of Battle for Dream Island Again the 26th episode overall, and the first episode of the second season of BFDI. It was released on June 29, 2012. In this episode, the characters find out who achieved enough votes to advance to BFDIA.


The chase

After Leafy bought Dream Island in the last season, a group of some of the season 1 contestants (Golf Ball, Pin, Tennis Ball, Pencil, Pen, Blocky, Teardrop, Coiny and Ice Cube) was shown chasing her through a gate, over many hills, and through Evil Forest. While running across the Evil Canyon, she was smacked by her map (possibly thrown at her by Firey), causing her to fall over and hang on with her hand for her life. She said "Blue skidoo, we can too!" allowing her to jump into the map and teleport to Yoyleland. Pin caught the map and tore it into little tiny pieces before throwing them up into the air, trapping Leafy in Yoyleland.

Voting results

After the dramatic beginning, Pen approached Eraser, Blocky, and Snowball, and pointed out the BFDI voting results. The total votes are 15532. Overall, the contestants who made it are Rocky, Nickel, Firey, Leafy, Teardrop, Bomby, Bubble, Needle, Spongy, Dora, Pin, Ruby, Tennis Ball, Coiny, Pencil, Match, Ice Cube, Flower, Donut, and Fries. A scoop comes in between the Season 2 cast and the "losers that didn't join BFDIA" and moves them into the separate groups. Book was very angry and sad that she didn't make it. Lollipop guessed Book didn't make it because viewers judged her by her cover. Book wasn't sure whether she should have been angry or indifferent about the remark.

  1. Rocky: 1,008 votes
  2. Nickel: 892 votes
  3. Firey: 724 votes
  4. Leafy: 606 votes
  5. Teardrop: 585 votes
  6. Bomby: 582 votes
  7. Bubble: 556 votes
  8. Needle: 489 votes
  9. Spongy: 456 votes
  10. Dora: 439 votes
  11. Pin: 405 votes
  12. Ruby: 381 votes
  13. Tennis Ball: 359 votes
  14. Coiny: 334 votes
  15. Pencil: 320 votes
  16. Match: 315 votes
  17. Ice Cube: 313 votes
  18. Flower: 312 votes
  19. Donut: 307 votes
  20. Fries: 303 votes

Suddenly, a sheet entitled "BFDI GAME RULES" smacked Book. Eraser took the sheet and read aloud rule one, which stated that contestants not present couldn't compete. Coiny fell a bit good about that rule. Since Bubble, Nonexisty, Leafy, Woody and Flower are dead/nonexistent, they are, disqualified allowing Book, Puffball, and Yellow Face to join. Also factoring in that InternPony707 and DegrasssiFan got to pick a character they want to join Season 2, Golf Ball (InternPony707's pick) and Gelatin (DegrasssiFan's pick) also made it. Book said that she knew that she would make it. Fries then backed away, since he couldn't stand Book's cover. An annoyed Book slapped Fries and ate one of his fries. In return, Fries slapped Book, making her spit out the fry, and ate one of Book's pages. He spit it out after 3-4 seconds and Book unceremoniously reattached the page.

  4. Teardrop: 585 votes

  17. Fries: 303 votes
  18. Book: 296 votes
  19. Yellow Face: 292 votes
  20. Puffball: 291 votes

Gelatin questioned who the host would be. Puffball replied by singing a long, drawn-out song, called "Yeah, who? I wanna know!" in which she floated around while sparkling and changing size. Everybody was so happy (except for Rocky) and got distracted, especially Firey, whose spiraling eyes indicated he may have been completely hypnotized, until he shook himself awake. He then recommended TV to be the host, since he was closest to the Announcer. In response, TV displayed the word "YAY" on his screen, along with a loud ta-da sound. Golf Ball asked Eraser if there were any more rules provided. Eraser then read aloud rule two, which stated that all eliminated contestants must be killed, and within seconds they were all crushed. Fortunately, Eraser was only hallucinating, and the real rule stated that all eliminated contestants must be treated with TLC. The contestants who didn't get enough votes screamed as they got flung to the TLC.

Picking the teams

The contestants decided to split into 2 teams. Tennis Ball says that one team should have the original contestants from season 1, and the other one should have the newbies (new contestants). Donut pointed out that his team was much smaller than the other team. Pencil said that maybe he has to deal with it in a rather mean way. Donut then said "Sometimes you have to deal with getting slapped!" while slapping Pencil across the face. Pencil responded saying "Sometimes you have to deal with getting stabbed!" while stabbing the top of him with her tip. Donut then said "Sometimes you have to deal with being set ablaze", and placed Firey onto Pencil, burning her. Firey suggested to Donut to maybe just calm down. Pencil said "Sometimes Firey's right" and Donut responded "Sometimes Firey's wrong". Then Puffball joined the conversation with an excellent idea: "sometimes if a player switches teams they'll be equal". Pencil quickly said, "sometimes it maybe won't be me". Donut chose Match to join their team, to upset Pencil. Pencil was surprised, breathing in the fire Donut put on her. Match complained that she and Pencil needed to stick together. Pencil told Donut he'd pay for that, and breathed out the fire and the fire hit Book instead of Donut.

Yellow Face then read rule three, which said that contestants should spin the wheel to choose each contest. Fries was very impatient when Gelatin was going to spin the wheel. Then Firey stated one more rule - rule four: Before a contest begins, players may switch teams if they want. Match immediately headed back to Pencil's team. Then everybody else except Donut also went to Pencil's team since it had more members and was therefore stronger. The wide-screen format grew even wider to emphasize Donut and Pencil's intense stares at each other. Pencil intervened by pulling the screen to a portrait size that showed her full body, saying she liked that screen better. Match agreed, while others changed the screen to their liking. Firey suggested everyone show their favorite screens. Various screens were shown until Golf Ball urged everyone to stop. Coiny switched teams after Firey was about to slap him. Then everybody urged Pin to switch teams until she finally did so.


Gelatin spun the wheel to decide the first challenge and it landed on a good old-fashioned game of "tug of war", causing everyone to gasp. After the BFDIA intro finally plays, the larger team easily won the contest, putting the little team of these 3 up for elimination. The voting format was revealed to have changed from commenting to vote. Now, each contestant has a video, meaning the video with the most dislikes will be eliminated. The video with the most likes will get a prize.


At the end, Leafy was shown to still be in Yoyleland with a recommended character called Boombox by Anko6. Boombox advertised the Leafy detector until Leafy turned him off. The episode then ended in silence.

After Match and Pencil described their favorite screens as being vertical rather than horizontal, it sparked the other contestants to do the same.

  • This is the 2nd time Leafy said "Blue skidoo, we can too!" which is a reference to a kids' show called Blue's Clues. The last time this happened is "The Glistening".
  • Another Name in the last Season is the only team that all members in that team compete in Season 2.
  • Unlike the last Season, this Season's premiere is not in 2 parts.
  • Fries went through a major character re-design since he was last seen in Reveal Novum.
    • Ruby also went through a re-design, however, she looks similar to when she appeared in Reveal Novum.
    • Nickel also went through a major character re-design, losing his arms and sign.
  • Match and Ruby also went through a quite noticeable voice change since last season, but now their voices sound autotuned.
  • This marks the first episode in which contestants that are both armless and legless compete.
  • While Eraser was reading rule two, rule three states "No reading ahead" instead of "Spin the wheel to choose the next contest".
  • David, Eraser, Firey, Match, Needle, Rocky, Snowball, and Spongy were not seen chasing Leafy.
  • Ice Cube, Rocky, Spongy and Teardrop were the only contestants who didn't root for Pin to switch to Coiny and Donut's team.
  • There was an alternate cut of 0:38 to 1:25. It was like the original, but with darker colors, echoed voices, and six Evil Leafy cameos. This may be a joke, though.
  • Book saying "Hey! Wait..." 3 times, is a reference to the Homestar Runner toon, "Strongest Man in the World".
  • Ironically, Rocky smiles less, even when Puffball sings. The only time Rocky smiles is in the intro and when everyone is showing their favorite screens.
  • On the scenes where Donut appears on-screen until the part where he talks, he has his old design.
  • Pencil and Book didn't die when they were set ablaze, even though Blocky and Ice Cube did in episode 13.
  • This is the first time in the series that the voting will be cast when they click on contestants' videos, who is up for elimination and rate either like for prize or dislike to be eliminated.
  • After Firey tells everyone to show their favorite screens, only the original contestants are seen in Ruby's screen. Their favorite screens are:
  • Puffball's favorite screen being a silhouette of Abraham Lincoln could be a reference to a Homestar Runner easter egg in the "Fluffy Puff Commercial" toon, where pressing the "L" button causes the screen to have a silhouette of Abraham Lincoln's head.
  • After Eraser reads rule two for BFDIA (for the second time), a big pan comes to pick up the eliminated contestants. During that scene, Pen is the only one of the original contestants from episode one of BFDI that wasn't screaming.
  • In the tug-of-war challenge, Coiny falls first, Pin falls second, and Donut last. However, Donut lands first, Pin falls second, and Coiny falls last, which is physically impossible.
  • This is the most viewed episode in BFDIA and 4th of all jacknjellify's videos, with Take the Plunge: Part 1 being the first with over 54,000,000 views.
  • Jacknjellify released the chase scene here.
  • In Eraser’s hallucination, the eliminated contestants were crushed by a large cuboid similar to the one on the Announcer Crusher.
  • When Book got set on fire, she screamed like Firey.


  • After Tennis Ball asks if the Leafy chase went too far, Golf Ball says if they stopped she would steal Dream Island even though she already did.
    • However it was Football in a Leafy costume who stole Dream Island, so it technically does not apply.
  • At 2:30, when non-present contestants are being erased from the voting results, Golf Ball's name is completely missing from the scoreboard. It has since been fixed by an annotation.
  • When Puffball said "Yeah who? I wanna know!" for the first time, Gelatin's arm is detached for a split second. If you blink while watching, you might miss it.
  • Eraser is seen in front of Pen when he tells Eraser, Blocky, and Snowball to look at the TV displaying season 2 contestants. Eraser is then seen among the crowd around TV, less than one second later.
  • At 2:36 when Book, Yellow Face, and Puffball are being dropped, screaming can be heard, despite the fact that none of their mouths moved.
  • At 3:49, Firey's flame isn't moving.
  • On Coiny's favorite screen, he has no arms.
    • It's possible they were hidden by the screen.
  • At 5:42, Coiny's mouth appears darker.
  • When Puffball says "Yeah who? I wanna know!" for the 3rd time, Golf Ball and Coiny aren't near Tennis Ball. However when she says it for the 4th time, the duo are.
  • When everyone is yelling "Switch", Bomby's arm goes on his face.
  • After Firey suggests to show their favorite screens, there is an arm floating near Needle.
  • When Donut slaps Pencil, his other arm disappears.
  • Some contestants constantly buzz every time they talk.
  • In BFDIA 5a, Nickel said that if Coiny and he get too close, bad things happen. However, in this episode, at 2:29 Nickel is standing right beside Coiny pretty close and nothing bad happened between them.
  • When Puffball says "Sometimes maybe if one player switches teams, they'll be equal!", the text is brown at the beginning when she said it.
  • When Fries eats a page from Book, Match's eyes are gone.
    • They may have been offscreen though.
  • The Sender Scoop Thrower somehow flings Cloudy, Nonexisty, Bell, Lightning, and Black Hole to the TLC, although they are flying contestants.
    • It's possible that the Sender Scoop Thrower knocked them unconscious. However this doesn't apply to Black Hole, as he would just suck up the part of the Sender Scoop Thrower that phased through him.
  • When the "newbies" switch to their team, Donut has his original asset, when he notices the other team having more members than his, his asset changes to the current one.
  • When Pencil is turning her screen vertical, her arm is detached for a split second.
