Take a ride in the Poptropica blimp and arrive at “Reality TV Island.”

Tabloid & Application

Walk into the building with the name Mike’s Market and go right until you see fresh donuts and a man reading a blue magazine. Talk to him, and he’ll tell you that “Reality TV Island is on in less than 24 hours! I gotta go!” In a rush, he will run out of the market and drop his magazine. Take the magazine he dropped, and you’ll have the Tabloid in your inventory.

Now click on your inventory and click to ‘Examine’ the Tabloid. Once it opens, click on ‘Next’ and you will find a blue card that says “Reality TV Official Contestant Application”. Click on the application and it should tear off.

The Application form will now be in your inventory. Leave the market and go left until you see the “Motel’s Office” room at the Wayside Motel building.

Pen & Pizza

Enter and head right until you see a telephone on a desk and a bunch of white pens with red tops. Click on the pens. Cheap Pen will be added to your inventory. Use the telephone to dial in this number: 555-7383 (as in “555-PETE”, as shown in the magazine). Click ‘Call’, and someone will answer and say, “Papa Pete’s Pizza. What’s your order?”

Your character automatically replies with, “Um…  small plain pizza.” In response, ‘Papa Pete’s Pizza’ will ask, “Where do you want that delivered?” Say “Motel Room 4B” and Papa Pete’s Pizza will assure you, “Ok, we’ll send a driver right over.” Then exit out of the office. Outside, talk to the woman with a pizza box.

You’ll offer, “Want me to take care of that for you?” Enthusiastically, she replies, “Sure! I want to get home and watch TV, anyway.” She will give you the pizza box and go away. (Tip: If you have the ‘Costume Collector’ or members’ costume closet, you may want to take this opportunity to save the pizza box to your closet!)

Bucky Lucas

Jump up to room 4B, and click on the door. You will knock on the door and announce, “Pizza!” When the door swings open, enter and walk to the right until you see a man. That’s Bucky Lucas, the local celebrity of Wayside Town, which is the area of Reality TV Island you are on. Talk to Bucky Lucas, and he will tell you, “Finally! It took you guys forever to get here!”

He will take the pizza from you and you will be given 3 options of what to say next. Choose the third one – “I could really use that grand prize.” Bucky Lucas will then give you a Postage Stamp. Go to your inventory and click ‘Use’ on the stamp. Stick it on your application card, and you can write something in your application card, such as: “I want to be famous!”

Applying for Reality TV

Exit out of his house, and go right until you see a television store with the name “TV World.”

Enter it and hop up to the third floor, then click on the biggest TV screen. After a few seconds, it will tell you “Last chance to be on the show! Send your appilcation to this address: 123 Star Avenue Hollywood” on the screen. Recognizing this, your player will say “It says to send appilcations to: 123 Star Avenue, Hollywood.” This information will be put on your application card. Also, you can write anything you want on your application to answer the box for “Why do you think you should be on reality TV?”

Once you’re done having fun with that, head over to the blue mail post box next to TV World. Click on it and you will confidently say, “Well, it’s worth a shot!” You will put the application card in the mailbox, hoping to make it in as a contestant for the famous ‘Reality TV Island Show’, based on Survivor.

The Next Day…

“I don’t believe it!!!” you yell. But just then, a helicopter flying by will confirm that this is, indeed, happening. “I made it!!! I’m on the show!” Now get up on that roof and click “start the show” on the helicopter to make it really happen!

Begin the Show

Click to ‘Begin The Show,’ and you will meet all of the opponents you will be facing. (Tip: You might not see them all in one show/season but if you keep restarting the shows/seasons you will get to see them.)

Now click to ‘Begin Today’s Challenge’ (people will get the challenges randomly). For your reference, here is an alphabetical list of possible opponents you may be up against: Betty Brownie, Betty Jetty, Black Widow, Bret Batter, Busy Bob, Cathy Codex, Chef Jeff, Director D, Dr. Hare, Freddy Fry, Grandma Gracey, Grandpa Grum, Helen Hike, Hip Hop, Hippie Harry, Lassie Lasso, Magic Mervin, Merry Muse, Ned Noodlehead, Richie Rebel, Rickie Rock, Sally Score, Sarah Snooty, Sickly Skull, and Slim Slam.

The challenges are pretty simple and you are given instructions before you begin, but here are some tips and helpful information for each one. They are in alphabetical order in this guide, but in the game you will be assigned challenges randomly.

Tips to keep in mind as you play:

  • If you get a challenge you know you’re not good at, use your browser’s “back” button to go back to the “begin” page for that round and click on the button again to get a different challenge. Be warned that this tends not to work on the last round.
  • Watch who votes off whom, and anticipate that they may vote off that person again next round if they can. Vote off the person you think will get the most votes based on this. Be careful – whoever you try to vote off, if they don’t get voted off, they may decide to vote you off next round.

After the end of every challenge, someone will be voted off the show. If you or any other contestant wins a challenge, they will be immune from being voted off for that round. The contestant with the most votes is kicked out of the show.

With all that being said, here are some tips on winning each game!

Balanced Diet

You have to keep your pole balanced. Try to keep the dot in the middle; it gets harder as more food is placed with your pole. As the brown dot (top of the pole) moves, move your cursor toward the opposite side of it to keep it centered.

balanced diet

Boulder Push

Keep left-clicking rapidly on your computer mouse on your boulder rock, as fast as you can, to reach the finish line first.


Coconut Catch

When the monkey throws coconuts, you have to jump and try to catch them before the others do. Stay to the left and center if you can. All coconuts are fair game, but grabbing the bunches of 3 coconuts will help you get to your objective faster, increasing your chances of being the winner. The winner is the first to get 20 coconuts.

Geyser Guess

This game is based purely on luck and chance. You need to select a geyser hole on the ground and hope it doesn’t blast you off. This is just a game of luck, and the same geyser CAN erupt twice in a row! The last player still standing will be declared the winner.

Hang Glider

Your main objective in this mini-game is to avoid the birds and the erupting volcanoes, which will knock you out of the air if you get hit by them. Last one still flying wins. 😀 The best way to win is to stay just behind a group of gliders so that you can better fly out of the way of obstacles. Always stay near the top of the screen unless there is a bird coming. When the volcanoes lava is starting to make a ball, stay away! When it is done erupting, speed forward.


Basically, you have a sling-shot with a rock and you have to pull back to hit any of your opponents’ plates. Whoever’s plate is the LEAST broken after the 3 rounds, wins. Aim for the plates with the least damage, and pull the slingshot just halfway for the lower plates and farther for the top row of plates. The person with the most of their plate left unbroken is the winner!

Mountain Race

The objective of this challenge is to reach the top of the mountain before your opponents do, but you have to watch out for and avoid the rocks as you run uphill. If the rock is falling from the air, click below to duck; and if it’s sliding downward, jump to avoid them.

Keeping yourself a little farther to the right (higher) works best even if you get hit once or twice, because most of the overhead rocks will miss you. But you still have to jump over the rolling rocks!

On the Line

Click the left click on your mouse and your fishing pole automatically will go down and come back up. If you’re lucky, it will return with a fish. The winner is the first to get 5 fish. Look for fish ABOVE your hook. Also, consider the speed of the fish and the speed of your fishing line when reeling the hook in. Click as soon as your line can come close to any fish’s mouth. You can time its rise again to try to hook it.

on the line

Pole Climb

The objective of this challenge is to stay on the poles and move right or left, while trying to avoid the falling coconuts. Click right or left to dodge the falling coconuts. Tip: When a coconut just goes down on one of the poles, jump to that pole. Always watch the top of your pole for coconuts. The first to reach the top of the pole wins.

Shot Put

Click the angle to where it reaches 45 degrees, so it should be right in the middle. Click again when the power bar is full. Whoever’s rock goes the farthest is declared the winner.


Click to aim your puck to the center of the target. There are three rounds. The objective is for your puck to be at the center of the target at the end of the 3rd round. On the first round, if you aim your puck to the center of the target, the other challengers can knock your puck out of the target in the next 2 rounds – prevent them from winning, and keep your puck in place!

Select a long shot (long arrow) for the first shot, or bank it hard into one side to go around your opponents. Get close and don’t shoot too hard. Because you are the last player to move your puck at the end of the last round, you need to make that shot count the most!

Totem Hop

Just stay on your totem and if your totem starts to shake, click on another one until you’re the last one standing. Keep in mind that you can’t jump long distances, so be careful.

Turtle Shell Toss

All you have to do in this challenge is to throw your coconut into the turtle shells; the larger, closer turtle shell awards you 10 points, while the smaller, farther one gives you 20 points. There are three rounds. Match your mouse with the angle your opponents throw at if they make a 20 point shot, so that you can cash in on the same amount of points they get just as easily.

Throwing at a 45-degree angle will almost always guarantee three hits on the 20-point shell. (You can set your cursor at the center of the palm tree to get this aiming point.) At the end, the challenger with the most points wins. If there is a tie, a “Tie Breaker” [rematch] will be played until someone misses.

Water Run

The objective is to fill your jug with water from the waterfall, then bring it back safely without spilling it. You must stand on the red-and-white circle on the right to have your water counted for your score. First to 100% water filled wins.

Watch out for the boar, who may attempt to knock you down. If the boar hits you, your water jug will be emptied and you’ll need to go back to the waterfall on the left to refill. Fill your bottle COMPLETELY full so it will only take four trips (one less than full) to fill your container to 100%.

And the winner is…

You! (Hopefully.)

If you didn’t win the show, try and try again until you do.

Once you have been declared the victor of the reality television show, click ‘Return Home.’

rtv win

Congratulations, you have completed Reality TV Island! You will be awarded the Reality TV Island Medallion and credits to spend in the Poptropica Store. (Tip: If you ever want to restart the show and play the challenges again, all you need to do is take a ride on the helicopter! But remember: You can only win the Store credits once.)

  • Reality TV Island is Poptropica’s 11th island. The island was released on February 24, 2010 for members, and March 24, 2010 for non-members.
  • Reality TV Island is based on the hit reality game show Survivor. In 2008, the Creators’ Blog had a poll asking what type of island players would like to see, and one of the popular options was called Survivor island.
  • Some of the contestants are characters encountered on the previous ten islands: Betty Jetty, Black Widow, Director D, Dr. Hare, and Ned Noodlehead.
  • Common room: Billiards
  • The TV show Bucky Lucas was on (and the one you later appear in) is called Reality TV Island, just like the island’s actual name.
  • Like Monster Carnival, Reality TV Island disappeared for a short while from the Poptropica Map. Fortunately, it did eventually come back. However, it kept getting delayed, and was originally intended to be released in the summer of 2009, before Counterfeit Island, which ended up being made available online before RTV Island.
  • Papa Pete’s Pizza is a parody of Papa John’s Pizza. Players are supposed to deliver the pizza to Bucky Lucas. (Tip: You can save the pizza box to your costume closet while you’re still holding it, if you want to keep it to wear later!) There is also a Papa Pete’s Pizza car in Zomberry Island.
  • The Tabloid contains references to other Poptropica islands: Super Power Workout, Shopping for Sharks, Dancing with Director D, Secrets of the Mimes, Cooking with Dr. Hare, Battle of the Bards, Dating the Black Widow, Black Widow in Style, Spy Sports (as in Sky Sports), and [not an island] Poptropica Planet (likely a reference to Animal Planet). The front page advertises “The Bard’s Secrets to Success” and “Dr. Hare: Is he still in space?”
  • You can squash the cockroaches crawling on the motel walls.

    This is soo cool! But I only read about the games, no spoilers for this Island I’ve decided! But great guide Mega Boy! 😀

    • silverwolf1 says:

      Turtle Shell Toss: It’s where you have a ball, then, you aim for a shell. There are two shells: A large, closer one worth 10 points, and a smaller, farther away one worth 20 points. a tip: match your mouse with the angle your opponents throw at. if they make a 20 point shot, just click your mouse. BAM! 20 point easy as pie. Also, go for the 10 point shell in the first round. that way some points will back you up. Note: there are three rounds.

      • Cuddly Scorpion says:

        No. Click on the middle of the palm tree for all of your shots and you get 20 every time! Starting with 10 means getting half the points you should be getting.

    • HD_ppgz...I AM HEATHER!! says:

      i do 2! and i just found out tht my parentz JOKED ’bout me get’n membership! 😦 they said i dnt need it! so ima just gonna wait a month for rtv

      • Happy Storm says:

        Well, they are right cuz you don’t NEED it. Just cause the parent won’t give her membership DOESN’T mean they are bad parents. 😉 Just saying.

      • Detective Sneakyc/Scaryw says:

        Membership is a waste of money.Just say that your parents not only did themselves a favor,they did you a favor.
        Membership is a waste and not worth it. 😀

  2. Ocean Clover♣ says:

    Dang it! I really should’ve saved that pizza box… 😥 I’ll just wait 24 days to make a new account and buy the Costume Collector and Multiverse and get the pizza box and spread the box to me… Hey! That’s actually a good idea! YAY!!! :mrgreen:

  3. silverwolf1 says:

    Also, there is this skull girl (in the pic behind hippie harry). Plaid skirt, purple hair, skull t-shirt. Her name is Sickly skull.

    PS: Thanks for posting my name!

  4. Happy Fang says:

    SPOILERS get more more excited! Even when I know the entire island walkthrough before I play the island,I still find it exciting and challenging! Anyway,I can’t stand waiting for a new island for more than 2 weeks so I eventually see spoilers anyway… p.s. DO NOT SAY “PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE LITTLE ONE”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! happy storm (this will only anger me as not everybody has your patience!

  5. Golden Rider says:

    Personally, I can’t believe that we have to face Director D and Dr. Hare AGAIN! I mean we beat them, arrested them or he got lost in space and suddenly we have to face them all over again?

    Side note: When do Dr. Hare and Director D. get voted off?

  6. anahappysword says:

    LOL! I’m looking forward to RTV. I’m also not gonna refuse to look at spoilers.I’m gonna read the spoilers! 😀
    Let’s all not vote the creators off.And lets’ go into the final challange and beat them so they cry like babies.!!!!! 🙂 😛
    *Almost gets hit by mind control*Hey,that don’t work on me.So,cry Hare,cry-cuz I’ma beat u in the competition-and i’ll play well.

  7. Bobitator says:

    PRETTY GOOD. for the turtle shell game, put your mouse in the middle of the tree in the background, and you’ll get 20 every time. plus, the starting with ten points thing doesn’t work. its just better to earn as many points as possible by getting 60 (20 points x 3 rounds), the maximum.

    • Green Boa says:

      There is actually no maximum. there can be tie breakers where everyone who has a tied score keep throwing until someone wins out. a tip for this is to get the 20 points and just keep your mouse in the same place 😉

  8. Smockers says:

    This island was crazy hard for me. I literally played 6 seasons of the show in total to beat it. I think it can vary, though, because some may get it on their first try.


    I. Hate. Betty. Brownie.

  9. Friendly Dragon says:

    Ok…One of my characters found a pink shirt with a white heart on it and the word ‘bucky’ on it … Any ideas on who its from…?

  10. muddydragon says:

    Am I the only who had “Another One Bites the Dust” running through their head when someone got voted off? 😀

  11. Giant Hawk says:

    I call RTV island glitch island. I’ve had so many weird experiences there that my head almost exploded. xD I found some crazy glitches…

  12. Blue Ninja says:

    I so cant wait!! Reality TV is being released to all tomorrow!! I’m gonna play the second it gets released!

    • lucky seastar says:

      IT TOOK ME 3 DAYS TO FIGURE THIS OUT I WON TODAY, it does get annoying after a while when you get VOTED OFF ON THE FIRST ROUND!!!! that cathy codex doesn’t like me so she votes me off

      Hijuyo: That’s why our Reality TV Island guide is here to help you. Congratulations on finally completing the quest. 😉

      • Bronze Bite says:

        I know how you feel seastar.Once,I got voted off on the 6th round and another I lost on the 7th.I get voted off on the 1st too.

      Oh yeah,I did it in 28 minutes,you just got schooled.

  13. Sunny says:

    Hey! I’ve just found out that when you Examine the Application Card, you can hold down the mouse button then draw pictures on the card just like what you’ve done to the chalkboard on Big Nate!

    PS: I think you need the Cheap Pen.

  14. dukeandsugar says:

    I don’t have the address for the reality show postcard. How do I get it? Thanks.

    Hijuyo: Go inside the building titled ‘TV World’ and click on the big-screen television on the third floor. You will receive the address (123 Star Avenue, Hollywood) to send the postcard to. 😉

  15. green fang says:

    in coconut toss, if yo put you mose on the bottom of the 2nd branch of the palm tree, you’ll get it into the 20 point shell

  16. lucky seastar says:

    Hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!this is a awesome guide thanks silver wolf, hijuyo,and mega boy!!! thanks guys now i finally have my lightning staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Quiet Hopper says:

    When I played, Hippie Harry voted off himself. Strange…

    Hijuyo: It happens. Occasionally, a contestant might vote him/herself off, but strangely, we (the player) can’t do the same. 😛

  18. Quick Flame says:

    Watch the largest TV in the TV shop and it will be dark and lightning will strike(it should be in the Reality TV channel)…It will take a long wait though….Oh and while waiting check out the items the people in TV are holding…(I’ve spotted Zeus’ Lightning, Poseidon’s Trident and Athena’s Spear)Cool huh!!!

    Hijuyo: The lightning happens when the TV shows lightning. 😉

  19. Squeezy Sinker says:

    Phew! It took me two seasons to win the medallion. By the way, I got a tip for Geyser Guess.

    What I did is on the first round, I hope I don’t get blasted and if I didn’t, on the second round I choose the geyser hole the eliminated person chose in the first round cause it will be unlikely that the same hole will blast again. I do the same in the other rounds.

    The island was fun! Great guide too, although I didn’t use it.

  20. blue heart says:

    Dude, Like lightning struck in the poptropica screen,after i clicked on the phone.Is that supposed to happen,cuz i dont think it is.And i dont have the lightning freaked out.

    Hijuyo: Lightning will strike your screen if lightning appears on one of the TV screens around RTV Island.

  21. blue heart says:

    *screams exitedly and runs in circles*Omg i saw like a TON of hand items that no one has!I just saw a Trick or treet basket!No wonder these people in the twon are adicted to tv!*turns tv to “Dancing with Dr.Hare”*

  22. shaggy tornado says:

    I still dont get how to keep the dot in the center. Do you have do click the mouse in the center? Do u have to move the mouse to counter-balance the stick? WHAT DO YA HAVE 2 DO? This is for Balanced Diet

    Hijuyo: You have to keep the dot in the middle by following it with your cursor in the opposite direction. 😉

  23. Golden Hawk says:

    Easy way to win the Turtle Shell Toss:
    Place your mouse slightly below or on the bottom right palm frond in the background. You can get twenty points every time if you position your angle that way every time.

  24. Cheerful Panda says:

    New RTV challenge! It’s called Knockout. Basically, you have a sling-shot with a rock and you have to pull back to hit your plate. If you end up with the LEAST percentage of unbroken plate, you win!

  25. Danny says:

    Pull back and release the stone to shoot at your oppenent’s plates. The player with most of their plate left after 3 rounds win! Really your slinging your slingshot into these brown circles (plates).

  26. Cuddly Scorpion says:

    Important Tips:

    It’s nice to win all the challenges. But it is especially important you win the challenge on Day 6. If you get immunity on that day by winning the challenge, you are guarenteed a spot in the final two. You also get to choose who your competitor is.

    Try Again Cheat:

    Before you start a challenge, save your game at base camp. If you lose, quickly X out and reopen Poptropica and try again. Repeat as needed. Be very quick, though: once the base camp reappears for the voting ceremony, the outcome of the challenge is permament.

    • hiphop says:

      Hijuyo, I will tell you something: All the constants heard a loud beeping sound. This is what their actions are:

      Betty Brownie suddenly hides in a dark place.
      Betty Jetty thumps on the ground and breaks her arm.
      Binary Bard’s happiness goes down to 0%.
      Black Widow runs around and covers her ears.
      Bret Batter’s bat falls down.
      Bucky Lucas exits his room.
      Busy Bob hears the noise and bangs his desk.
      Cathy Codex hears it and hides.
      Chef Jeff calls 911.
      Dr. Hare’s rabbot crashes.
      Director D suddenly screams and runs out from Headquarters.
      Freddy Fry’s pan drops.
      Grandma Gracey and Grandpa Grum run around their house.
      Helen Hiker falls down the hill.
      Hip Hop stops break dancing and runs out.
      Hippie Harry shouts: “What’s that noise?!”
      Lassie Lasso falls off her horse.
      Magic Mervin starts to make the beeping sound go away.
      Miss Muse feels dizzy.
      Ned Noodlehead covers his ears.
      Richie Rebel’s motorcycle falls down quickly.
      Rickie Rock runs to Hip Hop.
      Sally Score falls down and breaks her leg.
      Sarah Snooty gets real shocked.
      Sickly Skull shrieks loudly.
      And Slim Slam saw that the noise was the alarm and turns it off.
      Now how is it?

  27. Sammi says:

    You can refresh the page if the game is one you aren’t good at. The seasons are still saved though. 7 time winner!

  28. Smart Crown says:

    I have some hints for the minigames!:

    Balanced Diet : As the brown dot (top of the pole) moves, move your cursor toward the opposite side of it to keep it centered.

    Boulder Push : Your most rapid clicking will almost always be successful

    Coconut Grab : Stay to the left and center and time your jumps to get groups of single coconuts or preferably groups of three. (More than two others will usually get in each other’s way.)

    Geyser Guess : This is just a game of luck, and the same geyser CAN erupt twice in a row!

    Mountain Race : Avoid the rocks as you run uphill. Running farther to the right (higher) is an advantage even if you get hit once or twice, because most of the overhead rocks will miss you. But you still have to be aware of the rolling rocks!

    On the Line : Click as soon as your line can come close to any fish’s mouth. You can time its rise again to hit them.

    Pole Climb : Click right or left to dodge the falling coconuts.Tip:When a coconut just goes down on one of the trees jump to that tree.

    Shot Put : Click to aim at a 45-degree angle (the middle). Click again when the power meter is close to the top. (Best score is 55-60.)

    Shuffleboard : Select a long shot (long arrow) for the first shot, or bank it hard into one side to go around your opponents. Get close and don’t shoot too hard.

    Turtle Shell Toss : Throwing at a 45-degree angle will almost always guarantee three hits on the 20-point shell. (You can set your cursor at the center of the palm tree to get this aiming point.)

    Totem Hop : When a totem starts to shake, you have time to leap to another (click on the one you want to jump to).

    Water Run : Jump the obstacles and avoid the boar. Fill your bottle COMPLETELY full so it will only take four trips (one less than full) to fill your container to 100%.

    Hang Gliding: You fly across the sky and avoid the volcano erupting and birds Tip: Always stay near the top of the screen unless there is a bird coming.(Another) Tip: When the volcanoes lava is starting to make a ball,STAY AWAY!!! When it is done erupting, speed forward.

    Knockout: Each player takes three shots. Aim for the plates with the least damage, and pull the slingshot just halfway for the lower plates and farther for the top row of plates.The person with the most of their plate left is the winner!

    Hope you had fun and hope this helps!

    I have a question about this blog but I don’t know where to put it, so I’ll just put it here and please don’t (virtually) yell at me if there’s somewhere else I’m supposed to be posting this.

    If we finish an island before the guide for it is posted on this site, can we type up a guide about what we did and e-mail it to you, or do you only want members of the PHB team making guides for this site?

    Hijuyo: You’re welcome to send in any contributions to the PHB at We appreciate the help and support of our readers! 🙂

  30. Pawsrent says:

    For the fishing part, the Black Widow got five fish in just as many seconds. What the heck? And also how the heck is that even possible?

    Hijuyo: Maybe she has great fishing skills we never knew about. 😛

  31. Everyone says:

    Mountain race guide: Stay on the line where the third last person on the top is. You only have to jump on falling rocks!!

    Water run guide: Fill your jug with water, be with someone until they jump, jump high too, the boar will be there.

    Totem hop guide: When a totem starts to shake your standing on, jump to a close totem. Not too far, you will slip and fall down.

    Shuffleboard guide. Do not go in the center of the target on the 1st or second round, just go close to the target, (someone will push you out of the target) and prepare for the center in 3rd round.

    On the line guide: grab the fish by the fishes mouth.

    Pole climb guide: If your draw with someone near the finish, go on the flag before your opponent your with.

    Hang glider guide: just stay on the top left corner and then when a bird comes, just go down. The volcanoes won’t touch you.

    I hate Slim Slam and Betty Brownie and Busy Boband Bret Batterand Lassie Lasso and Richie Rebel and Cathy Codex and the oldies. But Sally Score and Ned Noodlehead are kind. Director D Betty Jetty Sarah Snooty Sickly Skull and Merry Muse are Ok. All the other i sometimes like and sometimes not. Helen hiker and Magic Mervin are ok too.

    BTW for the Turtle Toss game, just put your cursor (pointer) directly in the 20 point shell, but don’t click. The shells take turns going up and down so when the 10 pointer is down, click your mouse.
    100% success rate…faster too…

  33. Everyone says:

    I extremely love Reality TV!!!!!
    I disagree if they say it’s the worst. It’s the best!!!!!!
    Water Run is the Hardest.
    I am the best at it though,i win a lot of times!
    Thanks for the walkthrough.
    It’s the best, even the island too!
    Love this!!!
    Reality TV is the best!

    Minigame Guide:

    Boulder Push: Click rapidly and speedy to be first in the finish line to win!

    Coconut Catch: Catch coconuts with bunches or three or single! But don’t catch bombs!Stay away from other people, and it’s a game of timing too so remember to catch it before your opponents do!

    On the Line: Just fish and you have to catch it by the fishes mouth, you can remember the speed of the fish above so you can click and catch.

    Totem Hop: When your totem shakes, jump on another stable totem. It gets more harder later on. Jump to your closest stable totem-you might slip and fall into the sea.

    Balanced Diet: This is very tricky. Keep your pole balanced! More fruit more harder. Put your cursor to the opposite of the dot. Keep it in the middle most.

  35. Rosemary says:

    Does it matter who we vote for? Or just vote for like the ugliest one, or the one who alsmost won?

    Hijuyo: If you vote for the one who almost won, it would help because it would eliminate competition.

  36. Popular Cloud says:

    Ugh! It’s SO frustrating when you almost win the challenge and they vote you out! I’m just terrible at Balanced Diet! Otherwise, I think this island is super easy! 🙂

  37. Pirate Axe says:

    Hee…… I have a follower Hummingbird, and she shows up even if none of the characters do. Like at the beginning screen for the TV challengem before you see your competition, she’s just flittering round, oblivious to the world. 😀

  38. Lone Shadow says:

    Gah that stupid Sally girl keeps trying to vote me off!

    Even if I do stink at everything and haven’t won a game.

    I seriously am going to vote off Sally and That one hiker…. Heheheh

  39. Strangelookingfoodisthebest-tasting says:

    Guess what? You can just hop on the plane, and then you can on the top, and your Poptropican will go crazy!! IT’S SUPER FUNNY!

  40. Hyper Plug says:

    I just found best glitch ever

    have mythology power karate kid and gullivers travel. right when u wake up they next day and u have been chosen to go to RTV island, when u start flying away be small gulliver and hit spacebar a couple times

    after loading it says end of day one undefined won todays …..
    and everyone but you is male and has a black afrow! best glitch ever!!!

  41. DizzyDee says:

    There’s a trick to RTV island.

    You need: Either the Gulliver’s Travels ad Item
    or Minimizer and Hades crown.
    Minimizer and Hades Crown is better.

    Put on Minimizer and Hades Crown. Play RTV island. If you are playing coconut catch, press space bar. You get almost all the coconuts before most others have barely reached 5! Press spacebar again if you are playing Coconut climb or hang glider. Being small gives you a definite advantage there.

  42. Shaggy Peanut says:

    Grampa Grum is a Moron. During Hang Glider, Granpa Grum headed STRAIT for a bird. Also, on Knockout, Grum smashed his own plate! I know it’s Random, but this is ridiculous.

  43. Amanda says:

    In the hang glider challenge there is a “cheat” to it. All you have to do is go off screen. Oh yeah, I’m also a 6 time winner! Bout to get my 7th!!! Hijuyo, have you noticed that you can go off screen and eventually you will win no matter what?

  44. Alex (Icy Catfish) says:

    How do those CPUs push their boulders so fast? I’ve always considered myself a professional button-masher( when I play Galaga, I can tap the fire button so quickly it shoots faster than it does when you hold down the button), but I still rarely beat that minigame, and when I do it’s by a very tiny margin. Does pressing the button too fast make the game slower?

  45. Strange Fox says:

    thank you so much! the help a lot. I am so terrible at this island though; I always manage to get to like fourth or third, then lose, or fair miserably on round one. lol

  46. Prickly Dolphin says:

    I like Helen Hiker, Merry Muse, Sarah Snooty, Betty Brownie, Rickie Rock and Sally Score. Any ways, how do you do the balance diet? Any time I put my mouse into the middle when count down, my stick falls over. HELP!!!!

  47. someone random says:

    it’s like total drama island
    P.S if u dont no it’s a cartoon real ppl like and ppl vote and get kicked off like this game

  48. seo says:

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

  49. cool skull says:

    i have a glitch in this island! when your in the game and its time to vote off someone press Ctrl+Shift+4 then when you do the action you will like be frozen

    Me, Dr. Hare, Slim Sam, Hippie Harry & Hip Hop 4th Day. Hippie Harry is hard, but I beat him by a hair in most games.

  52. daddysgirl says:

    Hip hop is kind of…lame, no offense. I personally like Director D., although he usually always wins and i dont get to:( and hes kinda mean too

  53. Gabriel Weiss says:

    I found a cool trick! Go inside the Reality TV Helicopter. Then, Jump DIRECTLY UP. You will land on the spinning circley thing. You will make an animation normally found in COMMON ROOMS.

    Now: for a GLITCH! When selcting someone to vote, or when you are in the spot before a challenge, use the “Ctrl- Shift- 1,2,3,4” trick to make an emote. When you do this in these spots, you will end up stuck in the emote until a challenge starts or you are voted off.

  54. xin says:

    i was playing this but i didn’t go on this guide so i was at the phone thingy and i was doing the 77 pete number but i did it wrong 2 and i did it a 3 tjime and it said i dailed the wrong number so that is depressing

  55. xrunningwildx says:

    This is the first island I chose :’) And I didn’t look at the cheats 😀 I wanted to know (after I completed island) how you figured it out 😀

    I saw a glitch in totem hop where betty brownie and black widow were left and then when black widow was in mid air and then the two do many ridiculous actions. And while they’re doing that, they’re heads don’t move😂😂😂😂

  57. Haniya says:

    Did u know that if u stand on the rotating thingy on top of the helicopter u start spinning and screaming????

  58. Red Ice says:

    I was playing Knockout, and some silly things happened:
    1. Freddy Fry and Cathy Codex’s eyes her shut on their plates! LOL 😀 =]
    2. Both Black Widow had 72% of plate left, and I won! 😎

  59. Red Ice says:

    I just won RT, and I have a bunny balloon. Two funny things:
    1. When it goes into the blue page after the challenge, The string shows up.
    2. On the CONGRATULATIONS, YOU WON! page, the balloon is on the screen!
    LOL 😀 =]

  65. Greedy Bear says:

    When I wore the Pop Star Costume I was keep getting voted off. But I won it 10 times in a row. He was Hip Hop and I was Pop Star. But he and Merry Muse voted me off the most. I hate those two. And those two were: Hip Hop and Merry Muse.

  72. I hate reality TV island says:

    I hate this island. it makes me wanna cry,smash something, even I almost hit my laptop -_- I HATE REALITY TV ISLAND OR WHATEVER IT CALLED

  73. Quiet Flame says:

    A quick tip. I’ve noticed that if a Poptropican votes another off (like tries to) for example, Grandma Gracie tries to vote Betty Jetty (am I correct?) off and fails, the next round Betty Jetty will try to vote Grandma Gracie off. This way I knew that if I tried to vote Grandma Gracie off, I wouldn’t be the only one and this would increase the number of votes off for Grandma Gracie which means she would be more likely to get voted off. When you try to vote someone off, they usually try to do the same to you. So try to vote off the other poptropicans that the other poptropicans want to vote off.
