Top 10 Total Drama Characters Who Most Deserve to Win a Season

The Top Ten
1 Courtney

Overall, Courtney was my favourite character all throughout TDI, TDA, and just the whole franchise. At the start, she was nice, polite, and helped others, like trying to get to know Sadie when she was split up with Katie when they made the teams. She began to corrupt once she was exposed to Chris' shenanigans and the like, but if they had a nicer host, maybe she wouldn't have ended up so cruel. And even more, she was MEANT to stay if only Harold didn't interfere with the voting process. Serves him right for getting attacked by Courtney herself, Harold should've been kicked off once he was caught for switching the votes - he was clearly cheating. She's my favourite character because I was so happy to see someone that represented what I looked like, kind of annoyed that people don't actually agree that she isn't Asian because she 'doesn't look like it' even though south East Asians exist (slightly hoping she was Filipino like myself).

I have very mixed feelings about Courtney. In season 1, she was 100% robbed for absolutely no reason. She was on the pathway to being an even more well-rounded, entertaining, strong character. Then, for no reason, she left the show. In season 2 she became kind of a villain, not because of her competitive nature, but just because she started being mean (especially to Duncan, the one character she seemed to really have a soft spot for) in ways that showed poor strategy, such as demeaning her teammates and whining to Chris about wanting prizes. Then in season 3 she started being a bit better- until her rivalry with Gwen. I loved her and Gwen as a duo in All Stars. They brought out the best in each other and could have genuinely won. Then there was Sundae Muddy Sundae. If you know, you know.

Anyway, I only want Courtney to win if it is season 1/beginning of season 4 Courtney, not "I hate Gwen and Duncan even though I also adore them" Courtney. Bring back the good Courtney! The ...more

Courtney should've won AS! Solving tension with Duncan properly, making her friends with Gwen and Scottney made her really interesting in my opinion. Although, like many things in All-Stars, they ended up being done horribly.

Ironically, she could've won Total Drama Reunion if Fresh TV never desisted production. It would've been epic! Besides, Courtney was the one who started the court case.

2 Lindsay

While I believe Lindsay's eliminations were very unfair, she is somewhat overrated in my opinion. But I think we can't deny she should've won Action, even though Beth played the game well.

As much as I don't like her eliminations, I also think that she is a bit overrated. Is she a sweetheart? YES! Did she begin an awesome arc during Total Drama Action? ABSOLUTELY! I think that if Lindsay is going to win, it can't be because of the derailment of other characters who, realistically, are much smarter/better players.

Lindsay's eliminations were all so unfair!
She definitely should have been in the final two of Action instead of Beth and got farther in World Tour and All Stars!

All of her eliminations have been rigged.
TDI- If anything, Duncan or Owen should have been eliminated because they didn't even finish the race.
TDA- Chris shouldn't allow campers to vote for themselves. She probably would have won this season.
TDWT- Both outfits were hideous but, in my opinion, Tyler looked a lot better than you think.
TDAS- Just because she couldn't push a stroller with a teen in it. Great idea producers. Very creative-

3 Noah

While having him win the traditional seasons would not make much sense in my opinion, Ridonculous Race is where he really shines. Pair him up with someone who hasn't won (Cody?) and you've got a perfect winner alongside Sanders and MacArthur/Geoff and Brody.

He's our sarcastic know-it-all we love and should've stayed longer in world tour. Also should've made action! He should've totally won a season!

He and Owen should have won RR. If he wasn't so distracted by Emma he probably would have won that season. He should have made the merge at least once. Maybe in TDWT or TDA if he competed. The producers don't see his potential.

Noah is by far the best character! I relate to him for whatever reason and his melancholy personality is so hilarious. I think he's one of the strongest competitors and he could have won had Alejandro been eliminated earlier on in the third season. I think he deserves a lot more credit than he gets.

4 Cody

I believe World Tour should have had a triple finale with Heather, Alejandro and Cody/Sierra, and if they explored his character more and slowly got rid of his Gwen obsession and made Sierra less of a stalker, Cody would be an amazing winner alongside our favorite antagonists.

Look, I can't believe how far Cody got in World Tour. He made such a comeback from just being the "Geeky simp for Gwen dork" and that's great, I loved his development. While Heather vs. Alejandro will forever be the coolest freaking thing Total Drama's ever done, I like to think in some alternate universe, Cody won that million.

He was cheated out of his win! I wish there was at least an alternate ending where he won, I could at least have accepted that! I love Cody and I feel that it was too obvious for him to get kicked out like that. He should have had an underdog win, like Cameron (but better).

I could so see Cody winning and Celebrating by going to comic con or something geeky! He's so cute though.

5 LeShawna

LeShawna has been seriously done dirty. She is one of my favorite characters because she is not only a good player, but a good person. A lot of people think that Heather and Alejandro deserved the season 3 finale because they "played the game," but this doesn't mean that they deserve the money. You can play the game without being a jerk. Heather was a jerk to her own teammates, something that cost them challenges. If you actually want to win, you need to work WITH people and make ALLIES, not enemies. Heather took every opportunity to be a bully, something that got on everyone's nerves. Realistically speaking, Heather should not have made it very far in any season. But NO, she got tons of plot armor while her main rival, LeShawna, got thrown under the bus with 3 unfair eliminations and didn't even get to be in All Stars!

LeShawna seriously deserves a win.

LeShawna was robbed in Island and she'd otherwise have the season in the bag, but I can't see her winning any other season. Island and Action showed her at their best and most realistic, with one highlighting her qualities and the other showing her flaws more, establishing her character. She was derailed in World Tour though.

LeShawna is absolutely amazing. Not only was she a good team player, but she was nice to those who reciprocated her friendship, and would not stand for any hate towards those she knows. Honestly, she was wrongfully taken out in TDI, I feel like she should've taken the win in TDI instead of Owen or Gwen. Minus the fact that she faked crying in TDA, I think she's a very well rounded person.

LaShawna was SO wrongfully eliminated on Island, she never even got a proper goodbye. In Action, Courtney gets everyone to vote her off and in World Tour, she's voted off for slapping Heather a bunch. Um...I thought no one there liked Heather? I mean I know she became WAY more likable in World Tour, but LaShawna's elimination in World Tour felt almost as unfair as Lindsey's elimination in Island.

6 Dawn

Even though Scott's villain arc needed to be created. I wish she stayed longer. One of my favorite characters ever! Also why wasn't she in all stars?

I love Dawn so much! She's so kind, gentle and adorable! That dick Scott robbed her victory! She absolutely deserved that money.

Dawn was framed that's why she was eliminated. And it was all thanks to Scott! I think Dawn would be useful in the episode "Runway Model" So then she could help her team. But she never got the chance to. So in my finale, She gets second place to Brick.

Was one of the nicest characters who actually had a good intention if she won the million dollars. Plus she was basically was treated so rude by Scott, which is why I hate him.

7 Jasmine

Jasmine was the most deserving character to win Pahitskew Island, but since Sky was forced to be "the protagonist" and derail Dave beyond repair, Shawn had to take over her spot. While Shawn is a great winner, I really wish Jasmine won like many of us wished.

Good player. Strong, smart, agile, and kind, oh yeah, I could see her winning a season. The only reason she didn't get top three is a tree fell on her because of sugar.

Jasmine has a lot of potential sparked up to win, I'm surprised that she's under ELLA of all characters when I'm writing this. But I think she's great, and can easily be a larger face if they focus on her.

Jasmine deserves to win a season, after all, she was the best player in Pahkitew Island!

8 Bridgette

I love Bridgette and hated her elimination in Total Drama Island, and the way that her personality was derailed in Action and World Tour. I did like her and Geoff as hosts, they made a great team, but they still had so much more potential. Geoff got his second chance in Ridonculous Race, why can't Bridgette get another? If she's as "threatening" as the Guy Alliance in season 1 acted like she was, then why hasn't she ever made it that far?

Is it just me, or it should be that if you participated in every season in which you could, you are an all star. AKA: Owen, Izzy, DJ and Bridgette. Are they not memorable enough?

We know, we know, writers. She's good at hosting The Aftermath. But she really deserves another chance to prove her potential. We want the TDI Bridgette back!

Bridgette always gets eliminated too soon. I like her and I'd like too see her get far in the game in future seasons.

9 Brick

While Brick's eliminations were sadly all fair, although sad, I think that he should have somehow came back. Maybe don't eliminate him when Anne Maria willingly quits? Well, both of them were robbed so I won't get into detail. Still, Brick would have perfectly replaced Lightning as one of the winners, and having him choose Zoey over Cameron as a more deserving winner would have been a great ending to Revenge of the Island!

Easily one of my favorites from ROTI and it's pre-merge line-up, Brick 1000% deserves to win and is a clear winner for the Revenge cast if they ever go back to it.

Brick is pretty cool and if this series had a lot more season I'd like for him to at least defeat his rival Jo in the finals.

I like him and it was unfair when he was eliminated.

10 Trent

I loved Trent in Total Drama Island. He was kind to all, a good musician, a team player, and funny. (Did you see him in the food challenge?). I especially liked how he and Cody became friends and didn't start a bunch of petty girl-fights.
Then Total Drama Action WRECKED him and his relationship with Gwen. All he did was talk about the number 9 and go out of his way to try to stay with Gwen. Season 1 Trent knew that if you want someone, you have to be patient!
Trent could really use a win/redemption.

Trent should be above that ducking idiot stupid Gwen. Everyone is stupid to vote for her cause she already won. Trent needs someone that's not a total ass. Whoever role plays as Gwen is an idiot or whoever feels sorry for her or like her. Gwen should die and Trent can walk all over her.

I was so mad when he was eliminated in TDI. I'm sure that if Heather hadn't cheated, he would've won the first season. I hope he will return in the next season and win.

Trent should win the million AND Gwen back as his girlfriend. Also he should tell Duncan to back off. He treated gwen better than duncan.

The Contenders
11 Ella

Ella was just hated on for liking the best season of Tdi which was World Tour. Sugar is a really cringe character and was eliminated due to Chris bias. He literally got mad because someone liked the premise of his show so much they wanted to continue doing it. That's hypocrisy at it's finest.

Yes, yes, yes! Ella was a sweet girl that was unfairly robbed thanks to Sugar. She lied to Ella, convincing her to sing, saying she wouldn't tell on her, but instead, she wrote a note to Chris telling him that Ella was singing!

And Chris showed favoritism to Sugar and eliminated her just like that! This elimination was so unfair. She deserves to come back and win a season.

Who knows how far she could have gone? Since she's the cutest, purest soul ever to grace Total Drama, I say let her win a million dollars!

Similar to Dawn she was really nice and deserved more time to actually shine, a reason why I hate Sugar.

12 Samey Samantha "Samey"/"Sammy" was a contestant on Total Drama: Pahkitew Island as a member of the Pim√Ępotew Kinosewak.

Samey was really kind to nearly everyone, if it wasn't for her sister coming back I feel like she could've won.

I want her to win, and Amy to try and steal the money, and then Sammy can punch her, and kick her, and shoot her.

I feel like Samey vs Amy finale would be awesome. Both characters shoiuld be in a season without their twin so they can develop. And when they return for a third time they'd have a sibling rivalry finale.

Amy doesn't deserve to win. Only a great and helpful person, such as Samey, deserves to win.

13 Gwen

Ok, I know Gwen technically won Island, but like Owen, her prize money was dumped in exchange for a possible $1,000,000, only in Gwen's case, her money was seized by Chris. The worst part is neither Owen nor Gwen got ANY money because they didn't win Action or any other season they were in. It just seemed like a huge waste of time the 2 spent on the Island and such without ever getting a cent. In some possible new season, she definitely needs a win.

She was an awesome character. She was well written and would have won islands if it weren't for brownies. Brownies. If I were her I'd never eat a brownie again. Overall I think she should win a season

Gwen is the queen of the girls! She would win but Owen had to win in my country. Even tho she also kind of won she should win again we all love her a lot! She deserves a kiss

Even though Gwen has won a season (in her ending), I feel she should win another one. Courtney doesn't deserve to win a season! She uses her lawyers to get in the game! That's a cheat! I'd rather have Lindsay (who I adore! ) win a season than Courtney!

14 Dj

DJ is such a great guy. But I don't know if he ever really CAN win a season of Total Drama. He's too much of a sweetheart that he quit Total Drama Action and tried getting eliminated in World Tour. But if he ever does win, that'll be one of the best days of Total Drama.

DJ deserves to win before anyone else. He has a kind heart, he's selfless, loves animals, and cares about the well being of others, and is not afraid to show his adorable sensitive side, although he's big and strong. DJ has been a part of the series for a long time and I feel like he is one of the few characters on this show that actually deserves to win. I hope we see him come back, it'd be a shame not to bring a character the series grew up with back. DJ is and always will be one of the sweetest, kindest, caring contestants in the series.

Dj is amazing and nice and strong. He was never voted off by his team and even heather hugged him in season one. He loves animals and is very caring. I would like to see him in another season. He is my number 1 favorite of all the show. he is so cool.

No one ever had anything against Dj. The only rezone in the first two senone was him forfeiting him self or just some thing he was fully unprepared for.

15 Zoey

Zoey is just adorable! She's so sweet and naive. She deserves a million, she could take Mike out and they live happily ever after. :)

Mike let her win she so didn't deserve to win and besides she came in third in total drama revenge of the island! Ms nice girl didn't deserve to win!

Zoey was nice but she didn't do much for her team she definitely didn't deserve to win because mike always helped her win!

She is really thoughtful and kind even though she already won in her ending.

16 Dave

Dave unfortunately drew a short straw and went from a decent character to badly written. His only flaws were his germaphobia and Sky. Who honestly just couldn't make up her mind...she liked Dave and should have gotten with him...what was so hard about that, she wasnt going back to her 'boyfriend' back home anyway. I hope the two return and can fix things,

17 Harold

Harold is criminally underrated in the canon universe, and he could use that to his favor. Like Lindsay, he's one of the biggest contenders to win Action over Beth (she played the game well and deserved making it to the merge, but not to the finals). It would be really satisfying to see our beloved geek win!

Harold's mad skills should have AT LEAST got him to the final 3 of Action. I also think he acted very out of character when he was eliminated in World Tour. Actually he wasn't eliminated at all, he CHOSE to leave because of what Alejandro said about honor and whatever. It would have been cool if he and Duncan were finalists in Action, the final showdown between these 2 frenemies. Bottom line, Harold's got mad skills, he should get some mad money.

Harold is much like that one guy that 75% of people can relate to often, and is misunderstood sometimes and is VERY CLEARLY underestimated. If there's ever an 8th season, I'd like to see Harold win that season while still being the well developed, relatable, and good natured character he is. The last 2 or 3 seasons were a little too overrated, so I'd like to see a season that doesn't disappoint and have Harold win in at least 1 country in that season..

Since Lindsay should have won Action I believe he would have been the best candidate for final two over Beth. You would think the geek with his fast knowledge of movies would be able to accel as well as Lindsay.

18 Tom
19 Ezekiel

A lot of people seem to think Ezekiel shouldn't win but should at least get far, but I disagree. I think he should definitely win. I know he was hated by pretty much everyone in and out of the show, but it's not HIS fault he's the way he is, it's just what he's been taught. Like Duncan said, he has a lot to learn about the real world, but he's never given that chance to. He deserves to learn and deserves that win. He's kind of like an underdog.

I watched Total Drama when it was first aired, and I must say when I saw Ezekiel get off that boat right away, he was my favorite character. He was my favorite Total Drama character in season 1 and 3 when he was a contestant. He shouldn't have been on the chopping block for his sexist comment. He did way more work than DJ and Courtney. He was even able to carry a box full of hot tub parts with no sweat! He did well in Total Drama season 3, aka World Tour, and Harold should have gotten the drop of shame instead. Ezekiel's motivation to win the million was awesome! Overall, he was a strong, caring player and well-deserved to be in and win the next season! Free Zeke hats for everyone!

Not saying he should win, but at least have him be in the final five and have some actual character to make up for the crap he has been through. Like maybe he comes in at an early episode in the 10 year special season and he gets healed through some magical (Dawn maybe heals him), or something. He then competes and kicks at least one of the baddies butt.

Honestly he has been through the worst. he has gone through WAY WORSE than the other contestants. he truly deserves it. TDWT was my favourite season, but the writers went way too far with the way they treated ezekiel.

20 Sky
21 Izzy

Izzy is insane, obviously. But she's pretty nice, agile, very...VERY energetic and is NOT easily tricked. If she wanted to, she could outsmart everyone in Total Drama. While she hasn't won a season, I think she definitely should.

She is hilarious and she probably could have won World Tour if it wasn't for that head injury. Her athleticism really helps and her relationship with Noah and Owen could have been a powerful alliance.
Ngl her exit in Action was giving Material girl vibes XD

Why is she so far down? She should be number one! Yay for Izzy! The only reason she didn't win World Tour was because she had to leave. And she had to leave because she got really, really smart! She totally deserves the million.

I Need my Girl Izzy to win! She's like the most entertaining to watch out of everyone.

22 Scott

Scott is the one character I believe All Stars has done right, and he should have won it alongside either Zoey or Courtney. After all his suffering with Fang, he deserves the million!

Honestly, I liked Scott and I could see him scheming his way to victory, but he would have to get fang out of the picture or else someone like Mal might come in and get him eliminated.

Scott is a fantastic choice for a winner and doesn't even deserve to be this low on the list! He was one of the best in ROTI and the definitive BEST in All-Stars, he got robbed of winning there so let him get a future victory.

His plan was genius in revenge and he got the strongest players like B, Mike and Dawn gone real quick. Unfortunately he began fodder for Fang. He is the one villain besides Heather, Amy and Max(yes Max) that I want to win.

23 Mike

I like Mike. (Heh). He seems like a genuinely nice guy, but unfortunately, that can only get you so far on Total Drama, unless you're Owen, but anyway. I also like his personality gimmick for the most part. Should have been a finalist in Revenge of the Island.

He's overall one of the best male characters and he should have won TDROTI. If it wasn't for Scott. I have nothing against Scott its just that he could have picked Jo to be eliminated because of her athleticism. But I can see why he was eliminated that way.

You guys hate on Scott cause he eliminated Mike. What's hilarious is that you forgot that in All-Stars, he actually got farther without the use of his Revenge of the Island strategy. Probably also could have won if Zoey didn't show favoritism.

Even though he won too, I think in total drama revenge of the island, we should have won! Thanks a lot Scott!

24 Brody

I know he won in TDRR, but I would like to see him win without Geoff. He's awesome and I'd like to see him do it on his own, Geoff would support him obviously.

25 Jen

She should win and use the money to go on a huge shopping spree, and get her own fashion line!

Jen is gonna be my BFF she's cute and sweet and pretty.
