* CareerEndingInjury: {{Averted|Trope}}. The Trust Challenge leaves Gwen in pretty bad condition. While not bad enough that she couldn't compete, it was bad enough that no one would fault her for dropping out, which she intended to do and told Chef so. However, when Chris found out, he told her how good the ratings were because of the drama she brought, and cut her deal. If she stayed, he'd give her immunity till the merge, and if she were to be eliminated before she hit 7th place, she'd still get the cash prize for 7th place: $25,000. Needless to say, Gwen accepted.
* {{Fingore}}: The final trust challenge leads to her and Lindsay suffering a wipe out. While Lindsay manages to scrape by with a couple bruises thanks to her gymnastics training, is hurt pretty badly, her left pinkie only being held on by the skin. Once she's airlifted to the hospital, they have to remove it, leaving Gwen with one less finger.



* AdaptationExpansion:
** Her incident involving the RCMP is implied to stem from being a Marine Captain at some point under the name "[=McAllister=]".
** Izzy's tendencies to take on different names and behaviors are hinted to be a result of Dissociative Identity Disorder, and she reassures Dawn that "Explosivo" has not come back out.
** Her psychotic tendencies are hinted to be a result of her staying off her medication, something Dawn warns her against repeatedly, though Izzy says its because she doesn't like the side effects.

She remains as LiteralMinded as her canon counterpart, but attributes her (canonically) chronic name butchery to "a [[{{Malaproper}} speech impedicure]] or something".

[[WordOfGod The author has stated]] that her identity will be revealed near the end, but that many or even most readers may have it figured out well before then, thanks to clues sprinkled throughout the story.
