Top Ten Worst Moments of Unnecessary Cruelty in Total Drama

You know when Total Drama crosses the line just a little bit? And by a little, I mean as much as Hitler did when he helped execute the Final Solution. Well, maybe not that much, but still... Ya get what I mean. But I've gotta say some of these were quite a stretch...
The Top Ten
1 Feral Zeke (African Lying Safari)

Although I would prefer a redemption arc, Ezekiel staying on the plane to win the money after elimination is a pretty good concept! But the writers executed it horribly! Why did he have to turn feral? That was just so cruel and unfunny and the show barely spends time on it, ezekiel still gets only 12 minutes of being ON screen, dont believe me? Search it up! Here is how I would have done the plot! So before Ezekiel gets eliminated, he goes up to Lindsay and asks her to help him, he does it because of their alliance in season 1 episode 27! And Lindsay says she believes in 2nd chances so she will vote WITH ezekiel, they both vote for DJ but Its still not enough to save zeke, before he gets eliminated he tells Chris "cmon chris, Duncan is already eliminated we dont need another elimination, please man, I need this!" But Chris dosent listen and pushes Ezekiel out of the plane, Lindsay feels really bad for Ezekiel and gets really mad at Chris! Then after his elimination, I would actually have Ezekiel be the REASON for team victorys downfall to show how strong Ezekiel is, so in episode 3 ezekiel edits team victorys commercial to make it bad, in episode4 ezekiel knows alejandro is manipulating bridgette so when bridgette and alejandro have there "accident" ezekiel adds the poles and he runs away, in episode 5 team victory wins but thankfully its a reward challenge, so team victory still wins reward challenges to show that ezekiel isnt overpowered! In episode 7 Instead of leshawna jumping off (she still knocks off heather) ezekiel will climb the Thing and trip leshawna. In episode 9, ezekiel knows DJ will be eliminated this time so he tries extra hard to make team victory lose so lindsay can be the last member since shes the only one who is friends with him. But its a tie breaker challenge then ezekiel goes up to lindsay and helps her win, lindsay is scared of Ezekiel but appreciates that he cares for her, Tyler notices to but Lindsay begs him to not tell anybody. Then... more

2 Dakotazoid (The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean)

Dakota was trying to be a screen hog, but failed miserably. All she wanted was attention, and she sure got attention. But Dakotazoid was quite a stretch for her karma. Dakota didn't do anything mean to anybody, and she was a nice person. It was thrown out there for the sake of throwing something out there, and didn't have much of a reason behind it. Dakota was used as a karma magnet for NO REASON in TDROTI, yet Chris is STILL unscratched...

She was a bit of an attention seeker, but she was nice and I love her and Sam!

3 Scott in the Trauma Chair (Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown)

We knew Scott was banged up pretty bad, but THIS? That's a bit too far if you ask me. Scott was the main antagonist of the season, causing elimination after elimination. Putting him in a trauma chair and having everyone in the cast LAUGH at his misfortune was just... Unnessecary. Maybe his overdone karma tuaght him a lesson in TDAS... He was so dumbed down that season.

I agree this was ridiculous and uncalled for.

He needed Karma but this took it way to far!

4 Alejandro's Robot Suit (Hawaiian Punch)

What did Alejandro do to deserve this? NOTHING. Just like Scott mentioned above him, Alejandro was the season's main antagonist, closely followed by Heather. Alejandro manipulated most of the contestants by either seducing them, double-crossing them, or other forms of trickery. Him being put into a robot suit was just a TAD too far... I would have liked an ending where Bridgette, Leshawna, Noah, Owen, and DJ beat Alejandro up, giving him multiple bruises and monor wounds rather than something as extreme as THIS.

5 The Ballooned Eight (The Final Wreck-ening)

When someone mentions The Final Wreck-ening, there's no doubt they're gonna say it was terrible. The whole episode was downright painful to watch, but one of the most unnecessary parts of the episode is THIS. Chris made a challenge where "Mike" and Zoey has to get assisstants for the next challenge from balloons about ten feet into the sky. Not only is this completely inhumane, but it did NOT make me laugh. They'd be better off bringing back the lottery machine from Niagra Brawls! If you thought that was it, you get a second helping of abuse: The contestants who don't get popped out fly toward the sun. To this day, it's unknown how the contestants got down (The writers confirmed all the contestants are healthy and well).

6 Lindsay's Elimination (Can't Help But Falling In Louvre)

Not as much physical pain, but still painful on both sides. Lindsay and DJ were forced into a tiebreaker. Lindsay wanted to stay in the contest, but DJ wanted to quit so he wouldn't hurt any animals (thanks, Curse of the Mummified Dog). DJ had said several times that he wanted to quit, but the way Lindsay dressed up Tyler was so hideous, it lost to DJ using GWEN as a model, changing nothing about her except giving her one of his shirts to wear. Lindsay's cruelty is completely unnecessary, and the writers never give her a break.

7 Sky's Audition Tape (Lies, Cries, and One Big Prize)

This proves why Chris is sadistic. Dave and Sky's relationship was starting to derail a little bit, but just when it can't get worse, Chris shows tapes of Shawn and Sky. Shawn's confession scenes of him saying he wants all the money to hinself were shown, and Jasmine and Shawn were fighting. Something like THIS was salvageable, though. What ISN'T salvageable is this. Chris showed Sky's audition tape, and in the tape, Siy said she'd kiss her boyfriend. Chris even played it several times to let it sink in! How sinister... Because of that, Dave and Sky's relationship is insalvageable.

8 Chris Leaves Dave On Pahkitew Island (Lies, Cries, and One Big Prize)

Chris proved himself even more of an insane freak in this episode with the ending. Basically, Shawn or Sky gets the money (though I hate both of them), then there's not much else. However, when everyone leaves Pahkitew Island, Chris, along with everyone else, forgets about Dave and leaves him on Pahkitew Island. Honestly, Dave is the more forgivable of the two, and I would have rather seen SKY or SUGAR left on the island. At least they would get their karma! Or better yet, leave Chris there!

Dave got left for no reason it proves Chris is a jerk and ask to kill the kid's.

9 Chris' Treatment of the Interns (Sundae Muddy Sundae)

That's right, contestants aren't the only ones that get unnecessary cruelty targeted toward them! The interns got their fair share of it in Sundae Muddy Sundae. Chris forgot to feed his interns numerous times, and they were seen to have been starving. After everyone gets back with their sundaes to feed the starving interns, Chris changes the challenge to "Eat your own sundae". When Courtney complains that she thinks her sundae is feedable and that she should have won, Chris says by far his worst line in the series:
"I wouldn't feed them that"
UGGH! Chris is neglectent of his interns, and this scene epitomizes his treatment.

10 Duncan's Arrest (You Regatta Be Kidding Me)
The Contenders
11 Leshawna Getting Voted Off (Haute Camp-Ture)

That was a rather unusual elimination and they counted a parrot´s vote as well, although a little bit funny, that was rather odd.

How come this didn't get added till right now?

This whole episode was SO wrong and stupid!

12 Noah's Elimination (I See London)

This was the worst elimination ever, this should be way higher up. Noah found Zeke but no they had to vote him off just because he gave Al a rude comment. He's the best character.

This should be higher I love Noah.

13 Bridgette Being Stuck to a Pole (Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better)

She deserved it, serves her right for cheating on Geoff, and what did she expect she was kissing to close to the pole anyway! I'm so glad Al got a way BETTER girl, Bridgette sucks so much!

Screw ugly face Bridgette Al is the best character and that's that.

14 Mal Attempts to Drown Zoey (The Final Weak-Ending)

Mal gives me enough nightmares, but how can one of the cuter characters like Mike turn evil like this.

15 Gwen Hitting Harold with a Shovel (The Chefshank Redemption)

Gwen is lucky Harold is alive! Harold is poor!

How did Harold not get a concussion.

Harold might pass out or worse get head damage or something but a shovel can NOT kill a person

16 Training Montage (Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen)

Beth and Harold were the only likeable characters left (who were actually competing) in my opinion. In this montage, Courtney and Duncan trained Harold and Beth (their fighters) to fight. Their training was extensive, cruel, and unusual, and guess what Chris did? He made the challenge a life-sized version of robot fighting video games. This made all the training count for nothing, and trust me, I was upset.

17 An Intern Mutated (The Enchanted Franken-Forest)
18 Dakota Being Bitten Multiple Times by Mutant Fish (Backstabbers Ahoy!)
19 Gwen's Elimination (Picnic at Hanging Dork)

Just shut up! Gwen did not deserve this so stop giving her hate because she's a goth that's a dumb reason! And Crimson and her partner was a goth! So if your gonna hate on Gwen hate on the goth team from season 7! Gwen is a kind of nice character and she and Duncan are the best ship.

20 Cody Getting Mailed by a Bear (Paintball Deer Hunter)
21 Gwen Breaks Up with Trent (3:10 to Crazytown)

Trent did not deserve that I love Gwen and she's my second favorite original character but this is her most un likable moment. Trent also needed to develop.

Trent and Gwen are super cute but Duncan and Courtney are cutter but I still love these to.

I hated this breakup almost as much as Duncan and Courtney!

22 Lindsay’s Elimination (That’s Off the Chain)

Lindsay doesn't need hate she's a nice person!

23 Scott's Karma (Brain vs Brawn, The Ultimate Showdown)
24 Tyler's Elimination (Phobia Factor)

Poor Tyler, he didn´t face his fear and got voted off for it along with some other contestants mocking him for it to the point where he cried. I was crying during his elimination and I really wanted to hug him.

25 Max’s Elimination (Scarlet Fever)

This proves hero's will always win in the end.
