Top Ten Total Drama Island Episodes

The best episodes in the first season of Total Drama.

The Top Ten

1 Dodgebrawl

Noah, enough said - Gehenna

Its so cool the gophers had a 2-0 lead until the bass caught up and won 3-2

Everyone is saying that Duncan’s dodgeball technique is good, but Harold is the reason why the killer bass won. How come he’s unappreciated?

I liked Duncan's technique with playing dodgeball - Ajkloth

3 Haute Camp-ture

This is an OK episode. The bad parts are that Leshawna gets unfairly eliminated and it was boring. The good parts were that Leshawna should've been eliminated a long time ago. It was also good to see how the eliminated contestants were doing.

I was wondering what the losers were doing anyway, and I like how they brought them back. Noah in that episode was literally me in that situation.

YES! Go courtney! I love it when she beats Harold up with a lamp post! Noah is so funny "Haha, excelent" Courtney fan forever!

4 Hook, Line, and Screamer

My favorite part was DJ screaming because of Heather.

I thought this was a really funny episode when I first saw it and it remains one of my favorite Total Drama episodes to this day.

This is the second best episode! It is not worthy at #16! - quizmint

DJ was hilarious in this episode! He went to the bathroom, and Geoff waited outside to be safe. Geoff went for an ice cream truck( wihc was a trap set by Chef). He saw Heather shaving and with green lotion over her face. When he saw her, he ran out and screamed while running for MILES. So funny! - Turkeyasylum

5 Tri-armed by Triathlon

This is my favorite episode of the whole Total Drama series.I love the Gwen and Geoff moments, only true Total Drama fans will appreciate the bonding and moments of this episode, with Geoff and Gwen, because most people don't realize that originally, the creators were going to make Gwen and Geoff a couple, and I actually wish they would have, because Gwen and Geoff would have made an amazing adorable couple. If you go on YouTube and watch Camp T.V. promo, originally Geoff and Gwen were going to be a couple, not Geoff and Bridgette. This episode was a nod to that.

I wish Gwen and Geoff got together! They would have been the best couple in total drama HISTORY - Ryan1704

This episode is awesome. One of the episodes that makes it hard whether TDWT is the best season or TDI. - quizmint

6 Basic Straining

Good episode! I just have a little bit of gripes with this episode. Duncan, despite usually picking on Harold for a certain reason, he just picks on Harold for some reason. Also, why did Harold rig the vote on Courtney? Duncan, despite me liking him, would have made much more sense to be Harold's target because Duncan picks on Harold. Also, what does he mean by ruins your love life? Duncan did not ruin that for you.

Other than those 2 things, it's a great episode and a good tribute to the best couple on the show.

I love this episode SO much!

The season would have gone so differently if Harold had just gone of...

Courtney+Duncan=such a cute couple ❤

7 No Pain, No Game
8 Not Quite Famous

Not to good. Pretty ordinary. - quizmint

9 Not So Happy Campers - Part 2

A pretty good setup to a pretty good series. What more could you ask for?

I watch this episode obsessively! Like an uber fan

Should be way higher

My absolute favorite episode!

10 Search and Do Not Destroy

First episode I ever saw of TD

Trent's elimination and the breakup of Gwent was enough to make this episode bad. - quizmint

The Newcomers

? Chinese Fake-Out

The Contenders

11 Camp Castaways

This one was funny and good interaction between the contestants. It showed them getting close.

12 If You Can't Take The Heat...


YAY! I <3 Duncney in that episode


13 Phobia Factor

Definitely one of the best episodes.

14 Up The Creek
15 Brunch of Disgustingness

This episode is in my opinion is what sold this series for me, this is one of my most memorable episodes in the whole series.

Great episode, should be higher. Loved it a lot. It was gross. Owen's eating habbits finally pay off.

16 That's Off the Chain!

I like how Lindsay finally gave Heather her piece of mind. When she cussed her off, it was the best moment I've ever seen in the show. Funniest episode of all time also! - Turkeyasylum


Lindsay's Epic Cursing, Best Scene EVAH!


17 Hide and Be Sneaky

There's some Heather/Leshawna drama, Izzy imitating Chef's every move, and getting into a fight with him, Duncan forcing Owen to join the guy's alliance, than Owen kissing the alliance members on the cheek as a reaction, Lindsay begins to question Heather. This was a good episode. - Turkeyasylum

18 Paintball Deer Hunter

Like the way Courtney and Duncan get tangled up

I kinda liked it because they were shooting PAINTBALLS.i didn't like it because that was the episode when Cody got voted off, even though he was all injured up and in a wheelchair. Poor cody - ashdash2639

Great episode, just one question, at the end, where did Cody end up? - DapperPickle

Great episode that should make it into the top ten. It had some great moments like when Cody got attacked by a bear, when Heater got hit so much with the paintballs, and when Duncan and Courtney got tangled up!

19 Total Drama Drama Drama Drama Island

I love how everyone came back

-What I like about this episode when Duncan been betray by Courtney and she yelled out "Hey! Nobody steal my money that what I steal! "
-Heather smiley face back of her head.
-Izzy theme song doing something drastic.
-Owen going bathroom when tied.
-Heather got stuck in the beaver home.
-Noah taunt Duncan and eventually Duncan grab Noah pants and Noah flee, screaming high pitch. That's freak-in funny!
-ever said Noah run like a girl.
-Courtney hijack hot air balloon.
-Le Shawna K. O Chef and hijack his motor and tried to ran over Heather.

Yep, lots of drama there!

20 The Big Sleep

Extremely boring episode but I guess it could have been worse.

I really enjoy how for once, they had an endurance challenge instead of some crappy race or obstacle course.

Also, it was the first one I saw. :P

This episode I really like is because Noah woke up kissing Cody. Priceless! But what I am most disgust, people said he's gay. If you think Noah is gay, he could cuddle with anyone who's near him!

What happen if he cuddle Duncan?! Oh that will be the worse! Or Courtney? Qwen? Owen? Oh, I'll guess Owen will crush him first.

21 Dicks and Pics

? That's not an episode - Gehenna

22 X-Treme Torture

Geoff and Heather are naked in the same episode just wow

23 Who Can You Trust?
24 Not So Happy Campers - Part 1

26 Celebrity Manhunt
