Worst Things About Total Drama

The Top Ten
1 Random Placement of Non-Elimination Episodes

I hate this so much. The only time their are non-elimination rounds are when the amazons win.

2 Chris Became a More Horrible Person

Chris does descend into insanity, and by Revenge of the Island, he's completely lost it.

So Horrible, he couldn't host The Ridonculous Race.

He's the worst character! I'm so glad Don replaced him!

He should have stayed in jail and never came out!

3 Our Beloved Characters Changing Personalities

They were perfect in season 1! If it isn't broke, do not fix it!

Honestly this defines pretty much every problem I have with Total Drama at the moment

4 Duncan Returning in World Tour

Duncan really mess up World Tour. Noah's elimination was unfair because Chris wanted Jack the Ripper (aka Ezekiel) and he got it with Owen. Also, Tyler was eliminated after telling everyone about Duncan and Gwen's kiss. I wish Team Chris actually won the challenge and the elimination got to Courtney or Gwen.
Also, Duncan won Total Drama Action, it didn't deserve more screen time, Alejandro and Noah's rivalry could give at the show more drama than Gwen and Duncan's relationship.
They could handle things better, that was not Duncan's season.

Having Duncan return was a nice thought but it should have never happened. We finally see that Noah is capable of handling thing's pretty much on his own and he start's to lose his underdog status. Then what happens Duncan returns and is the main reason Noah left. Characters like Noah and Tyler could have finally gotten their well deserved screen time.

This is true he is the main reason I loathed the rest of the season except when he leaves.

He ruined it and it's his fault Noah is out and Gwen wouldn't have kissed him.

5 Dawn's Early Elimination

Blame Scott for this one, she got in the way of his strategy, so he needed to get rid of her.

She remind me of Rosalina.

She's super sweet

6 Sam Competing in All Stars

I know lindsay being an all star was a little weird. But sam made no sense. Maybe it's cause world tour had more mergers. Or because they wanted to see the reaction to him without dakota. It could be something else, but who knows.

How the heck is Sam a All Star. Sam could have easily been replaced with Brick. Brick saves three of his former teamates and what does Jo do she leaves their asses. Sam coming as an all star made no sense.

Why was sam on all stars? He played little to no game, and owen would have been a much better choice

All Sam did was lug around without blood. I hated how te writers wasted him like they did to Lindsay

7 Mike Pushing the Button

The press of a button got rid of Mal and the rest of the personalities. Could they not find a better way then that. Maybe they all could have convinced him why he was another personality. Doing this just completly destroyed Mikes character. He will not be returning for future seasons and if he does don't expect him to last long.

I agree but mainly because Mike is such an overdone character. I liked him in ROTI but when I heard him returning in All stars, I was shocked. He was the main character and making him go to the finale was the dumbest thing ever. Mal was stupid and so was Mike in All stars.

Why did they do this? First off, they took what made Mike an interesting character. He is pretty boring on his own. Secondly, this is just downright offensive to people with MPD. Most are stuck with it for life. It does take a button to cure it.

This is very unrealistic! Like let's make it all go away with a press!

8 Blaineley's Lack of Screen Time in World Tour

They get us all excited, give us the awesome song Blainerific, and then she's kicked off just like that. I hope she's going to have more screentime than that. Definitely one of my favorite characters in the whole series, along with Dakota and Lindsay!

9 Love for Some Characters and Crap for Others

Some characters like gwen, duncan, courtney and some other have too much screen time.

Exactly not all character should be that love or have some crap.

10 Too Many Joke Characters

Pahkitew island has had to many joke characters. Ella, Shawn, Rodney, Max, Beardo, and Leonard is number one what was his purpose.
Topher is debatable. I would say Scarlett became a joke at the end.

The Contenders
11 Courtney Returning in Action

If they had her return the least they could of did was put her in the final two. Really she placed a law suit on the show to return. They never said as a contestant they could have made her a intern. Did I mention she took over Justin's role as the antaganist.

Courtney was made to be a character who always makes her lawyers return. If she always gets so mad then just stop competing!

12 Ennui and Crimson Getting Eliminated

Honestly, we all knew they weren't going to win, but the reason they lost is upsetting.

13 Season's are Too Short

This, more than anything, is why All-Stars sucked so badly. By cutting the number of episodes in half, you're essentially halving the amount of time to develop characters. Not only that, you're also encouraging yourself to rush development and spend little time in the writing process, leading to certain badly-written plot points becoming infamous, such as Courtney's derailment in "Sundae Muddy Sundae" and the reset button in "The Final Wreck-ening".

Are 27 episodes to much now. This is bringing some more problem with seasons. Relationships are rushed. Talking to you Mike and Zoey. Leaving them with no bonding time. Other's are practically forced. Scott and Courtney the same can be said for Dave and Sky.

Is this why The Ridonculous Race is overrated?

Can't develop characters.

14 Ezekiel and Dakota

Okay it was a nice twist to have them turn to monsters. But now and this really go's for Ezekial, Why have they not got some kind of medical treatment. I mean no body wanted them to be monsters in the first place.

One of the few things that really upset me in the series so far. I think the worst though would be "Dawn's Early Elimination". That REALLY angered me.

Poor guys mutated then no cure or help for them Chris needs to be arrested

I hated this plot twist

15 Can We Please Get Some Serious Antagonists

Mal isn't a fan favorite but at least he's strong and deadly. Scarlet would be a good villain if she lasted longer and tried not to hide the fact she's evil, but she was very smart. Max is a wannabe idiot. Scott made his team lose just to eliminate them. Alejandro is a male Heather, a flirt, and way to overrated. Heather became nicer but she was kinda boring.Sugar just plain old sucks.

Mal and Scarlet are the only big ones! Heather is okay but she got a lot nicer, Al is an idiot, Max is a loser and the worst villain ever, Courtney is more like a bossy person, Scott made them lose just to vote his team off!

The only good villains are Heather and Mal. Al is just a flirt, Amy sucks, Max was a rubbish villain. Plus most of them didn't do anything Star Lord Out

Heather and Alejandro were great, Justin had wasted potential, sugar, Scarlett, Dave sucked, Amy had wasted potential, Mal just broke stuff, wow so eViL. Scott was ok, ice dancers were kinda annoying but they were ok

16 Eliminations are Too Predictable

Lately eliminations have become dumb and predictable. A better example for a unpredictable elimation is the great outdoors. Brigdjette burned down the tent while Katie and Satie got lost and cost them the challenge. Maybe a good twist like when Harold rigged the votes on Courtney.

17 Duncan Cheating on Courtney

Terrible. Duncan felt no remorse for his actions, he should have never returned. Gwuncan was too forced and toxic in AS anyways, so why even bother keeping them together in AS? Quick rant but I find the people who say that Courtney deserved it irritates me a lot. Duncan should of at least done it during his return or even before the season when he had feelings for Gwen. Plus, Courtney actually wanted him back. And the fact that no other person, not even Bridgette, her current only friend, never cared about her getting cheated on. And we say Lindsay's elimination in AS was robbed.

The horrible thing is that Courtney and Duncan made everything more interesting and Duncan and Gwen's relationship was just there. It just existed and did nothing to the characters besides them kissing. That was it. When Courtney and Duncan were a thing Courtney learned to loosen up and become more easy-going. I don't know what the writers did there...

I wanted to push Duncan out of the plane when I seen this. I thought he was finally becoming a better person by dating Courtney, and then he turns on everybody and becomes the biggest low down scum there is.

I agree Duncan and Gwen is the worst couple and it's looks super gross with everything being physical.

18 Lindsay Going Home First on All-Stars

If you paid attention, Lindsay regretted her decision to come back, so she wanted to eliminate herself. She said, and I quote, "I can't believe I'm saying this, but no lip gloss is worth this!"
Considering Lindsay love to look physically appealing, that should be the tip-off that she's truly serious about wanting to leave.

19 Heather Winning World Tour and Not Receiving the Prize Money

That was a huge slap in the face, after all her hard work.

Same for Alejandro, and Owen for giving it all up.

20 Almost No Development

The response to one person here ...
Gwen and Heather were both great in Action In my opinion.
Gwen is an overhated character in Action, I mean for one, she broke up with Trent because she wanted to win the challenges fairly and wanted him to stop throwing. Two, she broke up with him because their relationship was unhealthy for him and it was making him mental, and I just despise how Gwen was antagonized when she was only wanting the best for Trent.
Gwen was fine in Action.
As for Heather, I mean can you really blame her? After Island she was forced to work alone and nobody trusted her, so obviously she wasn't that strategical anyways, and I think she served as a great comedic character in Action, with her rivalry with Harold, the gag of her losing her wig, and she was just generally an enjoyable character.
I think Heather was good in Action too.

Gwen development went down as soon as action hit. It started to come back in all stars. I'm pretty sure Sierra stop being Cody crazy, why is she crazy again. She could of done so much in all stars.

I don't know what happen to Heather in action. Becoming friends with Leshawna and coming in ninth place. Heather you are way better than that. Thank god she came back in world tour.

Now we come to the characters that lost all development given to them. Mike and Duncan lost it all. You would think Jo learned her lesson.

Characters like Courtney and Dawn for example.

21 Courtney's Elimination in Season 5
22 Duncan and Courtney's Break Up

Why did the writers go and mess up my favorite couple? I hope they get back together soon.

Best couple on the show gets ruined. Like really? Why.

23 Gwen and Trent's Break Up

I watched this episode on Valentine's day which was a big mistake- it was so sad! You spend all of season 1 loving Gwen and Trent and finally they get together only to break up in what, 4 episodes? Not cool dudes. Not cool of you to play with feelings like that!

Trent and Gwen belong together. They were my favorite season 1 couple and then they got ruined. I hope they fix this. They really have lame reasons for breaking these couples up.

Gwen left him because he was cheating through the game for her, but she wanted to win fairly.

I loved this couple!

24 The Lack of Recognition Silent B Gets

Um? He's basically the billboard of "Wasted Potential" in the Total Drama fandom, he and both Dawn are both super overrated

He's cool, and needs more recognition in the show for sure.

25 Sundae Muddy Sundae

Dude... it's Sundae Muddy Sundae. It's the definition of #wemessedup
