- Catch-Phrase: "Charles, get me a ____", usually with some extremely ridiculous reason why after.
- Deadpan Snarker: Surprisingly sometimes, though Charles is usually the receiving end.

- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Well, she wins, but she, Charles, and their gags are frequently included especially post-merge.
- Token Evil Teammate: Of the Mini Dharmas.
- Took a Level in Kindness: In the final chapter, she somehow beats Roz and wins the million dollars, and decides to give it all to Charles. She reverts to her old self in the next season, though, missing Charles and forcing other contestants to do work for her.

- Deadpan Snarker: Not too pronounced, but occasionally.
- Expy: Of Neal from Freaks and Geeks, the author's favorite character.
- Extraverted Nerd
- Jewish and Nerdy
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Word of God says that Neal, being based on the author's favorite character from Freaks and Geeks, was supposed to be just like him and make it far, with funny lines and possibly the ventriloquist plot. But the many other interesting characters on his team made it hard to develop him, and he ended up being out of character and eliminated early.
Puck - The Chill Guy
"My name's not actually Puck. It's Cornelius, but you guys didn't hear that. I nicknamed myself Puck because I'm a super pro at hockey. I'm even better than Chuck Norris."Puck is a short, pudgy, bizarre character who loves making cheesy water/ice-related puns, thinks he's half-penguin, and has a perpetually enthusiastic attitude, to the point of delusion.

- The Load: He rarely contributes anything helpful to team challenges, yet somehow manages to squeak by elimination every time.
- Love Triangle: With Thomas and Casey, pre-merge.
- Naked People Are Funny: Has been seen "in the buff" a few times, solely for the sake of comedy.

- Odd Friendship: With Casey.
- Official Couple: With Casey again.

- Tagalong Kid: Puck is the shortest and most annoying contestant on every team he's on, and he also contributes the least.

- The Generic Guy: Outside of his rapping, he really doesn't have that many outstanding character traits.
- The Lancer: To Tolkien.
- Informed Attribute: Is supposed to be fat, but his character picture really doesn't show this, however this is due to the author struggling with drawing larger people back when the story was written.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Based on Sean Kingston, the only difference is that he's a rapper instead of a reggae singer.

Tolkien - The Fantasy GeekTolkien is a nerdy, short boy who's in love with the card game Luncheons & Laggins, but also very interested in girls.
- Adorkable: This trope basically sums up his personality.
- Author Avatar: Tolkien is meant to be this, from his crush on the character who is based on one of the author's crushes, to his nerdiness and appearance, especially the hairstyle and prominent nose. His obsession with Luncheons & Laggins was so he wouldn't completely resemble the author.
- Casanova Wannabe
- Character Focus: Tolkien has the most depth out of the characters other than possibly Layla, as his inner thoughts are shown constantly.

- Groin Attack: Kicks multiple contestants in the crotch in his time on the show.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Wolfgang gets very angry very easily, and Puck is usually the catalyst.

- Shout-Out Theme Naming: Him and Puck's names together make... well, Wolfgang Puck, but Word of God says that the author noticed the coincidence after he made the two characters (they were named after two Animal Crossing NPCs).

Yuri - The Yaoi FanaticYuri is a cheerful Japanese girl who lives close to where the season is filmed and who also happens to be obsessed with yaoi pairings.

- Anime Hair
- Everyone Is Gay: Seems to think this.

- Yaoi Fangirl: It's basically her label.
