The creation of Inanimate Insanity Infinity is due to an in-show adverse effect that creates an alternate timeline. This is caused by Lightbulb pushing Salt and Pepper off the Crappy Cliff in the first episode of Inanimate Insanity, allowing them to win the contest and become team captains for the remainder of the season.
Since not much is known to how Salt and Pepper came to power, it is assumed that as team captains, the duo dominates the competition and eventually take over the entire show to create their own new season which goes on forever, hence the name "Infinity".
As Salt and Pepper function as hosts of the season, MePhone4 no longer appears and is instead replaced by a MePhone7, who is only used for their MeLife abilities to create exclusive challenges, mainly fashion shows, for the duo.
Despite not being contestants, Salt and Pepper completely command the show's attention to focus on themselves. As explained by the two, many contestants have participated in the season, including Inanimate Insanity Veterans, but have all been eliminated, thrown into Black Hole, and replaced by MePhone7 for boring Salt and Pepper. Remaining contestants who are present on the show have, as a result, developed wild and peculiar personalities in order to gain attention, but commonly fail.
Salt and Pepper have defined their own rash guidelines for who can and cannot be featured on the show. The two establish that a character may be one of two things: either "totally zany", referring to the remaining contestants, or "normal", denoting Salt and Pepper. Those who do not fall into those guidelines, such as Test Tube, are promptly eliminated. This guideline may explain the entire lack of Season 1 contestants. Additionally, since Salt and Pepper may eliminate whoever they want for irrational reasons, it can be assumed that they can and have eliminated contestants for simply being irritating.
