TV was a male recommended character in BFDI. He would've join the competition but failed to join the game with only 13 votes to join. He once again failed to join in BFDIA, but was chosen to be the host, stated by Firey since he was the closest to the Announcer. He is currently a contestant in Battle for BFDI.


TV appears to be a flat-screen plasma (also widescreen) television. He has the ability to hide his feet and rest on the ground from the stand. He also can project images and videos on his display instead of his normal face.


While TV rarely speaks, he uses pictures and words to show how he's feeling and when he is talking to contestants. TV himself is often used by the other contestants to display information, stats, and Cake at Stake results.

In BFDI, TV dreams to win Dream Island. However, after realizing he only got 13 votes, which isn't enough to join, he shows an Announcer being crushed on his screen, indicating that TV is angry at him. Afterward, he is sent to the LOL.

In BFDIA, TV expresses major excitement when he becomes the host. In later episodes, he can be random and talks about things that just happened using words.

In BFB, TV is again mostly silent, though displays his emotions and feelings through visual aid on his screen. While TV has been rude before, such as when he told Robot Flower not to talk, he also sided with Robot Flower when she closed the signal in "The Liar Ball You Don't Want". TV, despite being mostly silent, is expressive and emotional, and maybe also snarky and has a sense of humor, as his voting icon is him displaying the word "don't", so that his voting message would be read as "don't type [E] to eliminate TV".

Starting in "Return of the Rocket Ship", he uses clips from previous episodes of BFDI-BFB to articulate full phrases instead of speaking.

  • TV is one of two contestants who was a host, as Donut became a host after Four was multiplied by 0.
  • A very common mistake is that TV was supposed to appear with legs, but mainly he would be seen without them.
