"Oooh! I can't wait to see those kitties tear their claws into the red carpet! Rawr!"

Voiced by: Dwayne Hill

The co-host of Celebrity Manhunt alongside Blaineley. Every bit as sleazy and shameless as Blaineley, he is just as obsessed with gathering tabloid-style celebrity gossip and dirt, as well as stirring up drama - especially if it's between girls, since he absolutely loves watching catfights.

  • Bit Character: He only had a major role in the Action reunion special and he did not appear in any of the later episodes nor was he mentioned
  • Camp Straight: He is this as he is obsessed with celebrity gossip but he is turned way on by girls cat fighting
  • Cat Fight: A big fan of them.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Doesn't appear after the Action special...
  • Flat Character: Tends to happen when you're only in one special episode.

Voiced by: Dan Petronijevic

Beth's boyfriend. A male model that she constantly talks about throughout Total Drama Action, ascribing all sorts of wonderful traits to him. Given Beth's homely appearance and dorky personality, it's little surprise that none of her fellow contestants believe he exists.

    DJ's Momma

"You think I raised my son to talk smack behind people's backs?!"

Voiced by: Clé Bennett

DJ's mother, obviously. A short and stout woman who works hard to raise her son to be a proper and righteous gentleman. While DJ has become extremely attached to her as a result of her strict discipline, she is one tough cookie and doesn't take lip from anyone.

  • Bankruptcy Barrel: When her cooking show goes bust in the Action special.
  • Berserk Button: Don't get chocolate on the floor of her bus.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Hasn't physically appeared since the Action special and hasn't been mentioned since World Tour.
  • Depending on the Artist: When she appears in the Action special, she looks very different from the photo of her that appeared in DJ's audition tape.
  • Supreme Chef: She has a special seasoningnote  which can make anything palatable, even Chef's disgusting food.
  • My Beloved Smother: To DJ.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a purple hat with a flower.

Voiced by: Alex House

Alejandro's older brother, who has constantly ridiculed and outperformed him at nearly everything. Having tormented Alejandro for his whole life, Jose essentially serves as a Freudian Excuse to explain the Arch Villain's ruthless and self-centered evilness.

  • Always Someone Better: He's stronger and more talented than Alejandro, who's spent years trying to get out from under his shadow.
  • Big Brother Bully: Would call Alejandro "Al" just to tease him. As revealed in his fight with Alejandro, he also apparently once replaced his soap with a urinal cake.
  • The Dreaded: To Alejandro.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Jose falls victim to one after he made the mistake of insulting Heather in front of Alejandro.
  • Noble Demon: He follows Alejandro's code of honor of never hitting the face.
  • Sibling Rivalry: A very intense one with Alejandro.

    The Interns

"Uh...Chris? W-we have a situation here!"

The unfortunate men and women who do all the dirty work behind the scenes on Total Drama, notably testing out Chris' various life-threatening challenges. Of course, when someone like Chris is their boss, there's bound to be a constant need for replacements.

  • Ambiguously Gay: A male intern controlling the mecha monster in "Mutiny On The Soundstage" blushed when Duncan kissed the monster mecha the intern was controlling. The blushing can be seen all over the monster's face.
  • Amusing Injuries: The only characters on the show to suffer worse than Tyler.
  • Butt-Monkey: So far they've been eaten by crocodiles, thrown off cliffs, shoved off planes, eaten alive by scarabs, used as footstools for Chris, and chased around a studio by Beth.
  • The Chew Toy: To Chris.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In "Eat, Puke and Be Wary", they refuse to help Chris get out of the communal washroom's septic tank after he gets caught in one of Scott's snares; in fact, they actively make Chris' plight worse.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: The one eaten by sharks.
  • In-Series Nickname: The brown-haired one based on Duncan's original design is known as Phil.
  • The Intern: Them.
  • No Name Given: Most of them.
  • Reused Character Design: Many of the pre-Revenge of the Island interns are based on the beta versions of the main characters, particularly Duncan/Cody and DJ.
  • Recurring Extra: Phil in Island and Billy in Action.
  • Red Shirt: Starting with Revenge of the Island, all the interns wear literal red shirts, similar to Chris'.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Only one or two female interns have been seen throughout the series.
  • Suddenly Voiced:
    • Phil talks to Chris over a walkie-talkie in "Total Drama Drama Drama Drama Island".
    • Billy has one line in the third Action aftermath.
    • In "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary", the tall, shaggy-haired intern complains about being burned by a spaghetti blast from Chef.
    • The short, pudgy intern with glasses actually gets to provide the commercial break Title Scream in "Zeek And Ye Shall Find".
  • The Voiceless: For the most part. Phil is the most vocal out of all the interns.


"Not cool!"

A large purple Bigfoot who wanders around Camp Wawanakwa's forests and occasionally shows up to antagonize the campers or as an obstacle in challenges. Even after the show moved to different locations, the producers still find ways to bring him back in various roles.

  • Interspecies Friendship: With the bear.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Purple and one of the strongest characters in the series.
  • Sixth Ranger: To The Drama Brothers in the first Aftermath.
  • Suddenly Voiced: He speaks for the first time in "Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen"
    Sasquatchanakwa: Not cool!
  • Team Pet: When he joins the Drama Brothers, substituting for Cody.
  • The Worf Effect: Before (mutated) Dakota, he was the largest, fiercest humanoid creature in the series, but he stood no chance against one of the biggest nerds and the toughest girls in the franchise; first, Eva beat him up in less than ten seconds (even tearing off his fur make herself a Nice Hat and boots); dweebling Harold kicked his face in during Action; and later, in Revenge of the Island, Jo defeats him with a single uppercut.


A mutated shark introduced in Revenge of the Island who had gained arms, legs, and the ability to breath air as a result of the toxic and radioactive waste Chris had allowed to be dumped around Camp Wawanakwa. He's usually seen trying to kill or eat the campers, particularly Scott.

  • Animal Nemesis: Scott, for stealing one of his teeth.
  • Artistic License – Biology: Sharks regrow teeth constantly throughout their life; however, this may be Hand Waved either due to his mutation or for Rule of Funny for his vendetta against Scott. In fact he does, as he lost all of his teeth in "Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown", but regrew them by next season.
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, do not take one of his teeth.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Spends two whole seasons hunting down Scott for the crime of taking one of his teeth, to the point of mauling him so badly he needs to be put in a robotic wheelchair.
  • Motivation on a Stick: How Cameron gets him to push a raft in "You Regatta Be Kidding Me" when his team needs a motor. Not surprisingly, said motivation is a very unwilling Scott.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Leaving aside Fang's mutations, his appearance is more cartoonish than that of the other sharks to give him more expressive range.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: Fang spends most of his screen time hunting Scott.
  • Threatening Shark: Primarily to Scott. He's more than willing to torment other contestants, but Scott's his primary target, and he'll even help them out if it gets him closer to Scott, because his motive is revenge rather than hunger.

    The Bear

A large grizzly bear (or possibly a multitude of similar individuals) that inhabits the forests around Camp Wawanakwa and repeatedly shows up throughout the series as one of the most frequent obstacles faced in challenges or as an unrelated threat.

  • Chainsaw Good: In "Can't Help Falling in Louvre" and the second World Tour Aftermath.

    Mr. Coconut

A coconut with a face drawn on it that Owen created as a friend during the first season episode "Camp Castaways" when he started going crazy after believing he was stuck alone on a deserted island. Despite Chris "eliminating" it that very episode, Mr. Coconut still shows up from time to time.

    The Killer

"Ow! Oh that was totally uncalled for. Man I am so out of here. I was treated way better in prison."

Voiced by: Scott McCord, Brian Froud

A hulking serial killer with a hockey mask, a chainsaw, and a hook hand that escaped from prison. He unexpectedly shows up during the first season episode "Hook, Line, and Screamer", derailing Chris' horror-themed challenge for the episode into a genuine life-and-death situation.


    Chipmunk # 1 and Chipmunk # 2

Voiced by: None

Two chipmunks (or possibly a multitude of similar-looking individuals) who show up from time to time around Camp Wawanakwa, usually observing and commenting on/ridiculing the campers and their predicaments. Otherwise, yeah..there's not much to say about them.

  • Establishing Character Moment: They were swooning over Justin in the Island finale pretty much cementing them as characters of their own accord even if it was one episode.
  • Silent Snarker: In "The Sucky Outdoors", they make fun of Katie and Sadie by mimicking them as they're arguing.


How well does it match the trope?
