     Total Drama Switcheroo Contestants 

Alison

I can't help it if I like to watch people suffer. Uwee hee hee. It's just so much fun and I'm going to enjoy destroying everyone on this island.

Arthur

I hope I don't let my team down. I know my inventions could be the key to victory... I just need to get them to work.
  • Adorkable: No matter how much he fails, he keeps on inventing.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Though they do fail quite a lot of the time. He gets better as the season goes on.
  • The Generic Guy: The author admits he doesn't have much to him outside his basic stereotype of an inventor.
  • Goggles Do Nothing

Ashley

This is a thinking game. I know how to think and there's no way these brain-dead lumps are going to get the better of me.
  • Beauty Mark: Used as a way to make her somewhat unnattractive.
  • Jerkass
  • Small Name, Big Ego: She constantly talks about how smart and strategic she is while everyone else in the game is an idiot. She is then promptly eliminated first.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Is the first one out at 16th place.

Charlie

Yeah, I'll admit I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed. But that's not important; what's important is that I make some new friends. Like that Missy girl, she's so sweet.

Chance

I'm just an ordinary guy. Yep, no secrets in my closet... Oh wait, did I say closet? I meant... uh, wardrobe... yep, no secrets in my wardrobe... I mean I don't even own a closet... uh, heh.

Collin

Okay, some of the girls on this team are kinda scary... in fact all of them are. (Sighs) Why do you mock me, fate?

Corrina

Okay, I know what you're thinking, and no, I'm not some crazy person. I just like to have fun all the time; life's too short to not enjoy it to its fullest.

Gene

I've only just arrived here, and already I'm starting to see some insecurity in the others. Like that Simone girl, she's trying way too hard. Once I crack her open, I'll be able to make her mine.

Ken

I'm here to prove a point, and that point is that just because someone likes sports, it doesn't mean they can't be a geek too. I may be closer to the physical build of Lightning, but I'm actually much more like Harold.

Kitty

This is me making a confessional! Take note, followers, you'll be seeing plenty more of these.

Kyle

I don't have anything to say, but I couldn't allow this confessional to end in the same gender it started in.
  • Breakout Character
  • Flat Character: Intentionally so.
  • Gone Horribly Right: The author stated that he was supposed to be a one-note character the audience would hate. Most of the readers ended up liking him because he was so one-note.
  • Stupid Neutral: Slips into this a few times when he takes his obsession with orderliness too far.

Mason

(Chuckles) Oh man, this is going to be great. I'm going to teach everyone here to fear me. I was put into prison for a reason after all.

Missy

You're looking at your winner right here. Not to sound arrogant or anything, but I've clearly been set up to be the positive protagonist, and that's the kind of person everyone wants to win.

Simone

Back at school, I never got to go all "Queen Bee" on anyone, only the head cheerleader can do that. But they don't need to know that. I'm finally going to be the goddess I've always been meant to be.

Willow

Heh, I kinda overreacted a bit there, didn't I? I swear, I'm trying to control my emotions, but just thinking of all the hate Twilight gets makes me mad. What would Bella think if she heard that stuff? (starts sniffing) I'm sorry, I just need a minute.

Zola

I'm actually glad I got the team I did. It's clear that this is the "villains" team and someone's gotta keep them in line. Plus, it's better than the "crazies" team.

     Total Drama Switcheroni Contestants. 

Allen

My team had better worship the ground I walk on 'cause you can bet that I'm gonna be the one winning all the challenges for them!

  • Determinator
  • Dumb Blonde: Didn't realize Jacquie insulted him until she explained it to him.
  • It's All About Me: Just look at the quote above!
  • Jerk Jock
  • Properly Paranoid: It takes very little words from Jodi to get him thinking the team wants him gone. For somebody who claims to be 'strong' and an 'asset', hit takes little to make him paranoid.
  • Social Darwinist
  • Sore Loser: Gets very annoyed when his team loses a challenge, or even when he or a team mate screws up in a challenge even if they win regardless.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Inverted. He's actually pretty bad at challenges unless he gets lucky, and yet his physique causes others to label him as a challenge threat.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Neil.

Caleb

I've spent a lot of time as a camp counsellor. I've worked with some troubled kids, but I really just love helping however I can. I hope to use these skills out here as well.

Cerise

I'll admit, I'm a bit of a stickler for following the rules. I just don't see why we can't play a good old fashioned honest game.

Hilary

I'm going to make like a living hell for my team. And you know what they're going to do about it? Absolutely nothing. As past seasons prove, villains go far, and the badder they are the better they do.

Irene

So ... apparently I have this reputation as the biggest bitch at my school. Well, I'm going to change that out here ... SO YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE ME OR DIE TRYING!!!

Jacquie

You know what I love about this series. The villains. It's that cut-throat nature that makes this game so interesting. You'd better have an epic villain planned for this season, so I can help them dominate this show.

  • Batman Gambit: In order to figure out who the mystery villain is, she tells every other member of the Final 6 a fabricated lie about herself, knowing that whoever the villain is will only use the lie she told them.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Look at the quote above. Jacquie gets her wish in the form of a villain too horrible for even her to support, and the fact she was helping him all along unknowingly ... and he was the boy she loved.
  • The Chew Toy: Gets hurt often, usually as a result of trying to get Rudy on her side.
  • Character Development: Starts off as a bit of a fangirl to villainy, but by the merge, she realizes that villainy isn't something to be admired or toyed with.
  • The Dragon: Tries to be this, and unknowingly becomes one to Neil.
  • Ship Tease: Some of it with Neil which ends in tragedy when he turns out to be the mystery villain and faking all of it.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Asks this to Neil when she learns he is the mystery villain ... and indeed it was ALL a lie.

Jodi

People always get eliminated by being stupid and making enemies. Me? I'm not even going to bother, since I know if I sit on the side some fool will shoot themselves in the foot sooner or later.

  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Jerkass: Quite snide behind the backs of her team mates.
  • The Load: Allen thinks this of her. Justified due to Jodi not really doing much at camp due to her under the radar strategy, as well as Averted when she turns out to be helpful in a number of challenges.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: Downplayed, but is shown to enjoy things like new age tea, yoga, and karma.
  • The Quiet One: Invokes this in order to get ahead in the game.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: This is how she gets her team the win in episode ten. She swaps the team signs at the baskets and gets the opposing team to give her team the victory.

Loren

I love things that sparkle and shimmer oh so very much and I can't wait to share that with my team!

Lynne

These kids aren't even on my level. While they're going to be busy making friends and exploring the great outdoors, I'll be playing the strategy game from day one.

Neil

Let me tell you, social hierarchies are tough. I've been working to get in with the 'it' crowd at my school for years ... and I'm still only hanging on my a thread. I sure hope I don't get sent right back to the bottom out here with a whole new bunch of people.

Noriko

I'm so, so, so excited! Have I made that clear yet! There's ... there's trees! And .. and ... and vines and bushes and ... it's a jungle ... a whole jungle for me to explore! And that's not even getting to the game ... I can't wait! I just can't wait!

Orchid

Many seem to consider blindness a disability, but not I. I may see differently from the rest of the world, but I still see beauty in everything.

  • Blind Seer: Though it's not explicitly stated whether or not she has any actual powers.
  • Disability Superpower: If not for the blindfold she always wears, you might not believe she was blind.
  • Expy: Of Dawn.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: Her parents think she is going through a 'hippie phase'.
  • The Omniscient: Seems to know more than she could feasibly know.
  • Super Senses: Her hearing is excellent, and she can sense how someone is feeling from the slightest deviation in their tone.

Reuvan

I know the way I look might freak a few people out, but I'm not changing who I am just to get people to like me. They'll have to deal with it.

Roy

I hate this show and everyone on it. I'm only auditioning to prove just how easy it is to win when you actually have a brain.

Rudy

I just love the feeling of inflicting pain on others. You can call me a monster if you want, I can't help it. I just get such a rush from suffering.

Sebastian

I want to be the hero of this season. It's one thing to be a 'good guy', but no ... I want people to look back on this season and say 'that Sebastian guy really made a difference for the better'.

Sharidan

Am I afraid of being targeted due to my pre-existing extreme wealth? No! I wouldn't dare let anyone get away with that.

Skye

This is going to be great! I can't wait to meet everyone and make new friends! I mean, who wouldn't want to be my best friend? No one, that's who.

Strike

Some kids have a passion for sports, or music, or even video games. Me? My passion is for winning.

Theodore

You mean I'm going to have to ... t-t-talk to people? Oh ... dear ... I'll n ever be able to make it out here, why did I think this was a good idea?
