Alright, wilderness!

A Kick in the Right Direction


       Dough, labeled The Replacement, was a male contestant on Inanimate Insanity II, and the alleged big brother of former contestant Bow. He was placed on the Grand Slams after they won him in the competition, but was immediately eliminated after being eaten by Yin-Yang, and thus did not return for the next episode, like Bow, though he did appear in ghost form and was mentioned beforehand he is unrecoverable by MePhone4.


Dough is a very unimaginative, wearisome, bland, and dull blob of monotonous apathy dough, which is curiously the opposite of his alleged sister Bow, who is notorious for her strong enthusiasm. Dough represents an inverse duplicate of Bow, as almost every aspect of his character is a diluted and tedious principle of Bow's. Dough even mentions that his perspective is to "copy the past" and "never try anything different". Dough has a strange connection to rhyming as well, while his name itself rhymes with Bow, Dough is obsessed with stairs, bears, dares, affairs and most likely anything else that rhymes with chairs, which is Bow's obsession (until Journey Through Memory Lane (Part 2)).

Official Site Bio

Have you ever wanted something so bad, and then you got something worse? Meet Dough! Intended as a Bow replacement, Dough does his best to express his own individual identity. Still, he can’t help but come across as a shameless knockoff, nothing more than a hollow and monotonous imitation of a dearly departed friend. So it’s a bit of an uphill climb for him to make a good impression. Nevertheless, while it’s impossible not to compare him to his alleged sister, Dough’s dry, deadpan attitude actually couldn’t be any more different - if only someone cared enough to notice!

  • Dough's voice is based on a mixture of the voices for Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time, and Silver Spoon from SherclopsPones's Friendship is Witchcraft animations.
  • Dough holds the record for shortest time as a contestant, with a mere 17 seconds before being eaten.
    • He is also the only contestant who didn't do any challenges.
  • Dough is the first contestant to ever claim to have siblings, although this could be false.
    • It is highly possible that Toilet lied about being Bow's brother, as in Let 'Er R.I.P., Bow didn't seem to recognize Dough at all.
    • Also, in Kick the Bucket, Bow yells at him that he is not her brother, confirming that Toilet lied.
  • Dough rhymes with Bow, which could be the reason Toilet thought that Dough is Bow's brother.
  • Dough occasionally appears without his legs, although his legs could just be absorbed into his body.
    • Counting this fact, Dough is one of two contestants to be legless, the other being Box. Of those, they are two of three characters that do not have legs, with Spikey Mervert being the third one.
  • According to the Best Of Dough video, Dough was based on the plot of the episode "Big Brother" from the television show Glee.
  • Dough is the only "contestant" to be "eliminated" without getting any votes.
    • Dough is also the second contestant to be eliminated without getting any votes, the other was Nickel, but since his votes were at the last episode, it doesn't count. He's also the second character to turn into a ghost, the first being Bow.
  • Dough is the only "debuter" in the second season, although, because of Yin's hunger, he didn't compete.
