Television Crew

    The Original 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.
  • The Chew Toy: 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.
  • Disposable Intern: Them.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: One intern gets eaten by sharks on his very first day on the set in "The Very Last Episode, Really!"
  • 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.
  • Suddenly Voiced:
    • Phil talks to Chris over a walkie-talkie in "Total Drama Drama Drama Drama Island".
    • Out of shot, one intern begs for his life in "3:10 to Crazytown" as Chef Hatchet kicks him down.
    • Billy has one line in the third Action aftermath.
  • The Voiceless: For the most part. Phil is the most vocal out of all the interns.
  • What Measure Is a Mook?: All the way back in Island, well before Chris began openly hoping for the maiming and deaths of the campers, the interns' lives meant nothing. Notably, in "The Very Last Episode, Really!" Chris welcomes a new intern and admits it's weird for him to step in when the finale is being held, but all the other interns have already died so the options are limited. He sends the intern out to test an obstacle and it's implied the intern gets eaten by a shark during the test run.

    The Revenge of the Island Interns 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdroti_fourinterns.png
Click here for Josh's mutant form 

From Revenge of the Island onwards, the original selection of interns get replaced by a quartet of fresh meat in pseudo uniforms. Like their colleagues, they do all the dirty work behind the scenes on Total Drama, notably testing out Chris' various life-threatening challenges.


  • Big Ol' Unibrow: The female Revenge of the Island intern has a unibrow as part of her nerdy look.
  • The Chew Toy: So far they've been whipped, catapulted, permanently mutated, starved, and gotten darts thrown at them.
  • Custom Uniform: The Revenge of the Island interns wear red versions of Chris's teal shirt and combine it with other articles of clothing in matching colors, but their exact looks differ between them. They each have a different style of pants or, in the case of the female intern, skirt and wear different models of shoes. Furthermore, the rotund intern stuffs his shirt in his pants and the female intern's shirt is always wrinkled.
  • Disposable Intern: Them.
  • 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.
  • Mauve Shirt: The Revenge of the Island interns are different from the preceding interns in that they have their own unique designs and aren't reuses of prototype designs and background designs. Normally, the narrative role of the interns consists of suffering and quite a lot of death, but none of these four ever gets into a lethal situation. They suffer, but their lives are as safe as the contestants' lives are.
  • Mutants: Josh is an intern who instantly mutates when he falls into a biohazardous sinkhole in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest". His new form is a human-like creature with uneven monster limbs and bat wings. From that moment on, he's no longer an intern and does not show up in that role again. His fate is unknown, although Chris does advise him to join the circus.
  • No Name Given: The olive-skinned Revenge of the Island intern is Josh, but the others' names are never spoken.
  • No-Neck Chump: One of the Revenge of the Island interns is a short, rotund boy whose head at cheek level makes a straight line down to his torso.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. The olive-skinned Revenge of the Island intern is named Josh, which is a designation he shares with one of the hosts of Celebrity Manhunt.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: The scruffy Revenge of the Island intern has medium-length hair that covers his face but for one eye. Along with his slightly oversized clothes, earring, and countable chin hairs, it makes him look unkempt in a cool way.
  • Pubescent Braces: The female Revenge of the Island intern wears braces, which along with her permanently wrinkled shirt give her a childish appearance.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Only one of the four, the one with the braces, is a girl.
  • Suddenly Voiced:
    • The female intern screams in "Up, Up and Away in My Pitiful Balloon" and "Pahk'd With Talent".
    • In "Eat, Puke, and Be Wary", the tall, shaggy-haired intern complains about being burned by a spaghetti blast from Chef.
    • Josh screams in "The Enchanted Franken-Forest".
    • The short, rotund intern with glasses actually gets to provide the commercial break Title Scream in "Zeek and Ye Shall Find".
  • The Voiceless: As characters that are only meant as an explanation how things get done around the island and provide humor by means of their suffering, the interns do not get to speak.

    Josh 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdareunionspecial_josh.png
"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 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 cat-fights.


  • Bit Character: He only has a major role in "Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special" and he neither appears nor is mentioned in later episodes, despite that his colleague Blaineley has a significant role in World Tour.
  • Camp Straight: Josh is just as flamboyant about celebrity gossip as Blaineley, but he is also turned way on by girls cat-fighting.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Josh really loves Cat Fights and specifically is shown to be interested in Heather and Gwen duking it out. This isn't portrayed any worse than deserving one disapproving look from Blaineley.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. The dark-skinned Revenge of the Island intern is also named Josh.

    The Mechanic 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdareunionspecial_mechanic.png
"It's busted."
Voiced by: Unknown

The mechanic of Celebrity Manhunt who, among other things, is responsible for the Drama Machine's functional state. Like Blaineley, he later gets a job on the Aftermath.


  • Big Ol' Unibrow: The mechanic's design began as a movie murderer shout-out and the unibrow, which lies flat on his "normal" eye and arcs over his bulging eye, makes him look appropriately threatening.
  • Mad Eye: The mechanic's eyes are of different sizes, one "normal", the other bulging. It gives him an eccentric look befitting his stoic demeanor.
  • Perpetual Frowner: The mechanic's (and the killer's) default countenance is a deeply disapproving stare.
  • Reused Character Design: The mechanic has the same design as the I Know What You Did Last Summer-inspired killer in "Ocean's Eight - Or Nine". Because of their limited narratives, there's nothing in the way of them potentially being the same character.
  • Toothy Issue: In Erin's interview with Chris, the mechanic shows he's only got one tooth left in his mouth. It is both a sign of age and of him being slightly unsettling.

Family & Friends

    Brady 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brady_2_3.png
Voiced by: Dan Petronijevic

Brady is a male model that his girlfriend, Beth, constantly talks about throughout 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 until he comes to see her during the finale.


  • Fashion Model: Brady is a professional model, but not a supermodel like Justin. That said, Justin, when he still thinks his beauty is tarnished due to injuries, acknowledges that Brady's beauty is something he feels threatened by.
  • Hero of Another Story: According to Beth in "Masters of Disasters", Brady leads an eventful life. He once had a summer job cleaning up after earthquakes and landslides, he was part of a rescue team that saves people stuck in avalanches, and he's a registered lifeguard.
  • Hot Guy, Ugly Wife: Brady is a professional model and Beth is homely at best. Little reason is given as to why she specifically is the one he chose to date, especially since he has many talents besides his beauty, but there's some suggestion that he likes her dorkiness.
  • Not-So-Imaginary Friend: Everyone thinks Beth made him up due to her outlandish claims about him and because she's only had two days between seasons to meet him. However, he's unambiguously proven to be real in "The Aftermath: IV".
  • Real Men Cook: According to Beth in "Masters of Disasters", Brady is a great cook and it's one of the reasons she's attracted to him.
  • The Voiceless: He has only a minute of screen time, so it's not notable that he only has one line. What is notable is that it is spoken only in Duncan's ending. In Beth's ending, he never speaks at all.

    DJ's Momma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdaction_djmomma.png
Click here for her original design 
"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.


  • Berserk Button: Don't get chocolate on the floor of her bus.
  • 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 seasoning, Hungarian paprika, which can make anything palatable, even Chef's disgusting food.
  • My Beloved Smother: To DJ.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a purple hat with flowers and a large feather.
  • The Stoic: DJ's mother has a limited range of expressions and is usually set on disapproval. How little her circumstances get to her is established in "Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special" when her bus falls into the ravine. Everyone is terrified for their lives, but DJ's mother just disapproves.

    Jerd McLean 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdwt_jerdmclean.png

Jerd is the cousin of Chris McLean and on good terms with him. Jerd and Chris are both Newfoundland natives, but whereas Chris went into the show business on mainland, Jerd has chosen to stay on the island and appears to have work as a fisherman.


  • Funny Foreigner: Chris is from Newfoundland and visits the island in "Newf Kids on the Rock" as the location of the day's challenge. He is assisted by his cousin Jerd McLean, a short man with a thick beard, who enters the cabin making use only of the lower half of the Dutch door while a jaunty tune plays. Jerd takes charge of the middle part of a three-part challenge run by authentically uttering a Newfoundland saying with his heavy accent. It's up to the contestants to figure out what the saying is.
  • Seadog Beard: One of the few ways the probably-fisherman Jerd looks apart from his gameshow host cousin Chris is the presence of a bushy beard down to halfway his neck.
  • Skintone Sclerae: Jerd's eyes are black beads upon a black line to indicate the lower eyelid.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Jerd is only Chris's cousin, but the two share a strong resemblance. They'd be identical if not for Jerd's shorter stature, thicker nose, and bushy red hair where Chris has thin black hair.

    José 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jose_confessional_tdas7.png
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, José 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.
  • Noble Demon: He follows Alejandro's code of honor of never hitting the face.
  • Reused Character Design: José's design from the neck down is the same as his brother, except José's shirt is purple and gray. His face, meanwhile, is a slightly redesigned version of Brady's face.
  • Sibling Rivalry: A very intense one with Alejandro.

    Jasmine 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/messagefromhome_jasmine.png
"I'm Jasmine and I'm with the McGilles Talent Agency. Romeo! Romeo! Where art thou, Romeo!? Heh heh, or something like that."
Voiced by: ???

Jasmine is one of Leshawna's closest friends and an upcoming actress signed on with the McGilles Talent Agency. She had aspirations to join the second season of Total Drama, but that didn't come to pass.


  • Artsy Beret: They eye-catcher of Jasmine's outfit is the sizeable beret on her head. It goes with her acting aspirations.
  • Genki Girl: Jasmine is a fast-talking, energetic girl with her head in her own world.
  • It's All About Me: Jasmine is supposed to partake in a message from home to support Leshawna, but instead she makes it her audition for the next season of Total Drama. When she's corrected to do something nice for Leshawna, she offers a signed photograph of herself.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, as nowadays Jasmine shares her name with Jasmine from Pahkitew Island. It does remain possible her name is spelled differently, as it's never been shown in print.
  • Reused Character Design: Jasmine's model is largely a redo of Courtney's model, having the same hair, eyes, skin color, and body shape. Her nose is Leshawna's, her lips Katie's, and her clothes are her own.

    Leshaniqua 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdaction_leshaniqua.png
"I knew it was too fool to be true!"
Voiced by: Novie Edwards

Leshaniqua is Leshawna's favorite cousin with whom she shares a close bond and may even live with. Due to their connection, Leshaniqua has made it on the show twice.


  • Green-Eyed Monster: One of the exclusive clips for Action puts Leshanique in a confessional. Not knowing what to talk about, she mentions her crush on one Franklin Hill and warns Leshawna to stay away from him or the cousin thing won't matter.
  • Reused Character Design: Leshaniqua's model is one of Leshawna's pre-production designs.
  • Sassy Black Woman: Leshaniqua is even sassier than Leshawna, questioning Leshawna's crying in "One Flu Over the Cuckoos" and loving Leshawna's trash-talking of her co-contestants in "Million Dollar Babies".

    Sky's Sister 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ridonculousrace_sistersky.png

Sky's older sister is an Olympian-level rhythmic gymnastic and a huge inspiration to Sky and her own ambition to make it to the Olympics one day.


  • Always Someone Better: Sky's sister, being the older one with more years of training to her name, is a better athlete than Sky. This is not a source of conflict between the sisters, but rather a reason for Sky to keep pushing her boundaries.
  • Cool Big Sis: Sky deeply admires her sister and is proud she came close to taking her skills at rhythmic gymnastics to the Canadian Olympic team. Sky's dream of being an Olympian level athlete is inspired by her sister's accomplishments.
  • No Name Given: Sky's sister is not named in either episode she's mentioned or shown in. The same Word of God that confirmed the woman from "A Million Ways to Lose a Million Dollars" is Sky's sister admitted there's no production name for her either.
  • Reused Character Design: Sky's sister's model is a light adaptation of Sky's model. She wears the same pants and shoes and the top is only reworked to give the sister a skirt. Unlike Sky, the sister doesn't wear jewelry, but she does wear a hat.
  • The Cameo: Sky's sister is only mentioned in "A Blast from the Past" of Pahkitew Island, but a model was made for her. This model makes an appearance in "A Million Ways to Lose a Million Dollars" of The Ridonculous Race, with Word of God confirming it's her.

Unaffiliated

    The Killer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/psychokillerquest_cequecest.png
"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 ("Hook, Line, and Screamer"), Brian Froud ("Heroes Vs. Villains")

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.


Flora & Fauna

    The Bear 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bearmarshmallows.png

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.

    Bruno 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdwt_bruno.png
A Siberian brown bear that Bridgette met and befriended while at location. It came with her to Hawaii, where it instead took an interest in Blaineley. The two are currently dating.
  • All Animals Are Dogs: In "Aftermath IV: Hawaiian Style", Bruno fetches Blaineley, at this time a Bandage Mummy stiff as a board, out of the water as if he's a dog retrieving a stick. Once back on land, he takes his time chewing on her.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Bruno may be the bear that killed one of the interns that accompanied Bridgette to Siberia. Even if he's not, he does attack Bridgette and at least one remaining intern, but becomes friendly when Bridgette treats his wounded paw. Of course, that's when he starts acting like Bridgette's ever-jealous boyfriend.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: For the duration of "Aftermath IV: Hawaiian Style", Bruno attacks everyone who comes within three feet of Bridgette, especially Geoff. It's only after he takes an interest in Blaineley that he leaves Bridgette and her company alone.
  • Interspecies Romance: Blaineley returns Bruno's affection nowadays as the two enjoy a romantic boat ride in Paris in the exclusive clip of "Evil Dread".

    Chipmunk # 1 and Chipmunk # 2 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/outdoors7.png
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 or ridiculing the campers and their predicaments.


  • The End Is Nigh: As Camp Wawanakwa breaks apart and sinks into the sea, humans and animals alike make a run for it. The exception is Chipmunk #1, who laughs maniacally while holding up a sign depicting a shattered planet.
  • Interspecies Romance: They swoon over Justin in "Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island" like so many other animals do.
  • Killer Rabbit: The chipmunks may be cute and small, but they pack a punch. Harold get to experience it when he annoys #1 in "Aftermath: Bridgette Over Troubled Water".
  • Silent Snarker: In "The Sucky Outdoors", they make fun of Katie and Sadie by mimicking them as they're arguing.

    Mr. Coconut 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrcaudition.png

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.


    Fang 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fang_hvv.png

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.
  • Mutants: Fang is a mutant shark with human level intelligence, two legs, two arms, and the ability to survive outside of the water. He is a recurring threat to the campers and one of few mutants not to take up residence in the Fun Zone.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Fang's appearance is more cartoonish than that of the other sharks and of the other mutants. This gives him a more expressive range, but it also makes him look like he got imported from a Hanna-Barbera cartoon.
  • 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.

    Larry 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tdrevengeisland_larry.png

A mutated venus flytrap introduced in Revenge of the Island. He is Chris's pet plant (and possibly lover), both before his mutation and after. As a mutant, Larry is huge, has prehensile branches, and prehensile roots that allow him to walk around if necessary.


  • Man-Eating Plant: Larry is a mutated venus flytrap whose one means of attack is to chew down on opponents and victims. Although they all escaped, he's come close to eating Cameron, Zoey, and Staci.
  • Mutants: Larry is a mutant flytrap who has prehensile vines and can uproot himself to give chase to any prey. He was Chris's pet before mutating and falls back into that role when Chris returns to the island until he eventually settles in the Fun Zone.
  • Right-Hand Attack Dog: He's Chris's loyal and ferocious pet, best demonstrated in "Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown" when he saves Chris from mutant gophers and on his orders terrorizes the contestants.
  • Whale Egg: It's implied in "No One Eggspects the Spanish Opposition" that all mutants of Camp Wawanakwa and Boney Island lay eggs and Larry is no exception. One egg of his hatches multiple multiple offspring.
  • When Trees Attack: Larry is a mobile plant with prehensile branches, all of which comes as a nasty surprise to the contestants that meet him for the first time.

    Sasquatchanakwa 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/samthin_1.png
"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.

    Scruffy 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tda_scruffy.png
A black and green tarantula that Duncan keeps as a pet and positively dotes on, even though he knows that Scruffy could kill him at any time during cuddles.
  • All Animals Are Dogs: Duncan treats Scruffy as dog, such as telling it that it's a "bad killer spider" for jumping onto Harold's face. Scruffy doesn't particularly act like a dog, but it acts even less like a tarantula.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Spider: Scruffy looks gruff, but is never shown to be hostile and even comes across as a silly critter due to Duncan's overt care for it. Sadly, the point it looks its silliest is when its squashed flat against Harold's back.
  • Uncatty Resemblance: Scruffy has a mean-looking face that goes with Duncan's bad boy face and sports the colors green and black just like Duncan's hair.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Scruffy debuts a few minutes into "2008: A Space Owen" and dies just past the midway point.
