So let's win this challenge the bright way!

Lightbulb, labeled The Bright Leader, is a female contestant on Inanimate Insanity. She was placed on Team Epic and is the team leader. She returned in Inanimate Insanity II and once again is the team leader of The Bright Lights.


Lightbulb resembles a large class Incandescent Light Bulb, an electric light which produces light with a wire filament heated to a high temperature by an electric current passing through it until it glows. Her face appears on her glass bulb, which is large and shiny yellow. Within her glass bulb, she has a stem sticking out above her metal sleeve.

Lightbulb's arms and legs protrude out of her grey metal twisted sleeve, followed by an electric foot contact between her legs.


Lightbulb is a goofy, fun-loving, enthusiastic, free-spirited, and optimistic character.

Lightbulb is greatly known for her goofy and ludicrous attitude, given that when she returned for Inanimate Insanity II, her character had completely changed from the clumsy and ditzy leader of Season 1's Team Epic to a more comical and almighty chief and commander of Team Bright Lights. This makes Lightbulb the only person in the series to be captain in S1 and S2. She's also known as a tomboy.

Given that Lightbulb's personality is quite erratic and unpredictable, Lightbulb may appear as a brilliant leader one moment, but then become a senseless clown in an instant. Lightbulb takes great pride in being in control, almost addicted to leadership, although she has shown to be quite careless of her actions as well.

Lightbulb displays her tyranny whilst in a constant feud with Paintbrush, as she will use her superiority to make decisions for the team, and even send contestants to the Calm Down Corner. She will also often display eccentric displacement, in one manner, she will believe that standing still throughout an entire challenge will cause her to win.

Disregarding her leadership, Lightbulb is a generally kind and benevolent player, with a large love for cookies and other strange foods.
