Top 10 Total Drama Island Character Send-offsThis list is for the best scenes of characters leaving Total Drama Island - from the funniest to the most emotional to the best of both. The eliminations might not always be fair, but the dock of shame walks feature some excellent Total Drama Island scenes. (Note: This list is exclusively for season 1 of Total Drama)
Whose send-off do you like the best?
Her elimination was definitely one of the most dramatic and unfair, but the way that everyone gathered on the dock of shame to say goodbye is one of my favorite scenes of the season. It's a sad scene, but I think that that is what sets it apart from so many other parts of the show: it is a scene in which the show lets itself be emotionally vulnerable, which doesn't happen much. I feel like it is a transitional moment that certainly sets the stage for the rest of the season, maybe even the rest of the show.
I hated Trent's elimination so much. This episode included some fabulous moments for his character (as well as his relationship with Gwen, which was a really great subplot), and then threw it away with Heather's obvious plot-armor.
However, his good-bye pep-talk to Gwen was really sweet, and showed some pretty good foreshadowing for the finale.
Her feral "You'll never get me alive!" line never fails to make me chuckle. I imitate it whenever I am able to slide it into conversation. This scene truly embodies Izzy as a character. It is hilarious, it is unhinged, it is shocking, it is off-the-walls wild.
I have a lot of feelings about this episode. On one hand, Duncan and Courtney really needed more build-up instead of "You're not my type but I'm going to kiss you even though you keep hitting on me when I say I'm not interested". On the other hand, Courtney learning to laugh was really nice to see, and it showed the potential that she and Duncan had. On the other hand, Courtney's elimination was 100% messed up and wrecked Duncan and Courtney's arc going forward.
Regardless of all of that, Courtney's protests at being eliminated, along with her reaction to Duncan's gift, showed so much of what makes Duncan and Courtney- well, Duncan and Courtney! This moment may have come out of a really unfair elimination, but its execution was perfect.
I loved it but I'm. Just a shipper lil
This scene was another touching one. I think that Beth and Cody had the potential for a really great oddballs-stick-together friendship (and maybe romance).
Geoff's elimination, much like Bridgette's, made little to no sense, and in this scene, Gwen shows why. It really could have been great if their weird friendship had been explored later on in the show.
Bridgette's elimination was totally uncalled for, and, since Geoff didn't vote for her, remains a mystery to this day. However, It was really sweet when Geoff came back and made sure she new he still liked her.
Also, the almost-kiss was hilarious!
I loved Heather's elimination! I was so glad that she finally got what was coming to her, especially since her vanity was what caused her downfall. However, her actual send-off was limited, and she never seemed to follow up on her lawsuit. (Meanwhile Courtney's character got a bit screwed over through the lawsuit plot. Why not give that plot to Heather instead?)
"I loved. I lost. And I saw boobies. What more could a man ask for?" - Harold, Total Drama Island
This scene has the dramatic Leshawna x Harold moment, a reference to the iconic mud-racing challenge, aa gracious loss, and a well-deserved boot from the island.
Harold lived, lost and saw boobies one reason I love him so much
As annoying as the squealing could get, it was still sweet when these two were reunited.
Tyler got robbed but didn't have many lines throughout the season
