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

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

Chris was always bad but revenge of the island on he was god of torture level evil

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 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

5 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.

You already left twit then you come back and proceeded to cheat on Courtney

6 Dawn's Early Elimination

She remind me of Rosalina.

7 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!

8 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.

I meant "not" on my other comment.

9 Love for Some Characters and Crap for Others
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 Newcomers

? Leshawna's Elimination in Season 1
The Contenders
11 Ennui and Crimson Getting Eliminated
12 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!

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?

Everything gets rushed

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

Heather was an idiot. Courtney, just plain crap. Alejandro, seriously!?! Scott, seriously, make his team lose!?! Mal just broke peoples stuff and Sugar, just plain stupid. Jacques and Josee were just crap, and all they do is laugh evilly and hurt the cadets.

As of late we got Max a very sorry excuse for a villain. Sugar a crossbread between Owen and Heather. Scarlett had potential but she got elimanated in the same episode she did something.
Amy could have been a great one. Except she kept bithing to her sister lets see you try that with ever or Jasmine

As of late we got these three. Max a very sorry excuse for a villain. Sugar a cross bread between Owen and Heather. Scarlett had potential but she chooses not to really do anything until the same episode she was kicked off.
Amy would have made a better antagonist of the season but sadly she chooses just to bitch to her sister. Lets see you try that with ever or Jasmine.

Heather and courtney are the best antagonists and that's just the tea!

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 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.

18 Lindsay Going Home First on All-Stars
19 Duncan Cheating on Courtney

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.

Duncan left a diamond for a rock.

20 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.

21 Courtney's Elimination in Season 5
22 Sundae Muddy Sundae

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

23 Bring Back the Classic Contestants

The fans don't seem to get much of a voice anymore. Some of the fans favorite character are getting eliminated early. B

Fan favorites like Dawn or Bridgejette left out the blue. If they can't come back as competitors why not interns.

24 Sadie's Lack of Screen Time

It's dissapointing that she's only a contestant in season 1. I'm really hoping she'll be able to compete in another season, without Katie this time.

Katie had less than her.

I want to see more of her, she deserves more credit than she is given

25 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.
