The Food Battle News Reporter is a character that is present at the end of every Food Battle. His lines are "__! __! You've JUST won Food Battle 20__! What are you going to do now?" the winner (Ian or Anthony) says what they're going to do, and the Reporter asks if he can come, Anthony exclaims a "hell yeah" or Ian shouts a staunch "no" in response to the reporter's question. He has died twice, first in Food Battle 2008 and second in Food Battle 2011 with lan. He was resurrected sometime later, as mentioned by Anthony in Ian's body in Food Battle 2012. The Reporter has won one Food Battle, which was Food Battle 2014. After Anthony died from the poison in the catalog that Ian poured on it, he came to declare Ian the winner but accidentally bumps him into the same bucket of poison Ian used to poison the catalog, killing him. Realizing both Anthony and Ian are dead, The Reporter declares himself the winner of Food Battle 2014 and takes a bubble bath to celebrate.
