Worst Total Drama Episodes

The Top Ten
1 Sundae Muddy Sundae

There is so much wrong in this episode, but first the positives:
-Scottney, my least favorite couple, broke up
-Some jokes were funny
That's it! Here are the biggest problems with it:
-Gwen and Courtney are not friends anymore
-Courtney's character development got flushed down the toilet
-Chris changed the challenge last minute without saying that they could skip a step if the ingredient was tampered with
Those are just the big problems! All in all, I think Ed McDonald really went to a new level of bad writing. Despite making the best episode of All Stars, by default but still, he made the two worst episodes in the series in my opinion (You Regatta be Kidding Me and this episode). Also, I just realized that all these episodes take part of Duncan or Courtney getting bad treatment.

I don't hate TDAS, but I will admit it is one of the weaker seasons. This was the start of TDAS's final 3 episode and the worst in that regard. I will say this, Scott was really funny and I liked Courtney's Ice cream job rant. Now, on to the negatives. This episode completely ruined all the development Courtney went through! I was actually hoping she would be a finalist and I'm neutral on her most of the time! Speaking of that, I did a little research and found out that 3 of the 4 writers had plans for Courtney to be a winner and were rooting for her. However, Ed McDonald decided that Mike and Zoey had to be finalists and created his abomination. I would have been find with a Courtney and Zoey finale, but NOPE! Ed McDonald, I hope you never touch this show again!

This episode completely ruined Total Drama All Stars. Fans have wanted Courtney and Gwen to be friends again for 3 YEARS, and when they become friends, the writers ruin it, and make Courtney's elimination obvious. Plus a few more mistakes, making the finale more than obvious, and scrapping 2 major plots, Sundae Muddy Sundae is a clear #1 worst.

This episode sucked. Plain and simple. Also, Gwen agrees to an alliance with Courtney in this episode, but only if Courtney votes for herself. I mean, come on! Courtney has been on TD long enough to know that voting for yourself is an immediate elimination, therefore defeating the purpose of an alliance.

2 Hurl and Go Seek

Setting aside The Bold And The Booty-ful, this is the grossest episode in all of TD. While the entire season had shown a drastic dropoff from other seasons, such as TDI, and a boring and one-dimensional cast, this ine suffered the worst. The only time I laughed was when Chris called the Juggy Chunks poison control department, and that was the only decent joke. I hope the person who came up with this idea gets fired.

Total Drama just so you know, no one was rooting for Dave in this episode. If Dave didn't get eliminated this would be the worst episode of all time

The jokes all relied on cheesy gross-outs, the entire episode was pointless, and DAVE GOT DERAILED. Need I say more?

Total Drama could have done great things with Dave. Well not after this episode he is ruined

3 The Bold and the Booty-ful

Chris Eliminated Gwen For No Reason Whatsoever! This Is At The Top Of My Worst Total Drama Episodes List. Also, Was It Really Necessary To Add a Poop Joke This This Episode!? Dear Total Drama Writers:
There Is Nothing Funny About Poop Jokes. Sincerely, Riley.

Absolutely terrible episode. The Total Drama series is really funny. But not this one. Its disgusting and not in a funny way. 3.5/10

Has TDAS really gone this low? Poop Jokes?! There is nothing funny about poop jokes at all.

This was Trash!

4 The Ex-Files

The Ex-Files? More like The Love Triangle, because that's all this episode was about. Nothing but Courtney, Duncan, and Gwen drama.

I hate to say this, but Owen should have been eliminated in this episode. Sure Tyler screwed up the alien artifact but at least he helped while all Owen did was run around screaming.

It's called Total DRAMA. Not "Total Duncan and Courtney Live Happily Ever After".

The only part of the episode I liked was Tyler's parts. They were so fresh, funny and warmhearted. The episode is pretty bland though. - quizmint

5 The Final Wreck-ening

Mike was unrealistic, Zoey was bland, and their chemistry was forced. I don't understand why they had to be the final two in what was supposed to be the "All-Star" season. At least give us Courtney and Zoey. Courtney has been a contender in seasons 1, 2, 3, and 5. Out of those people who have done that, I'm pretty sure she's the only one not to make it to a finale. You're going to flush that down the drain just to have a weak challenge with a horrible ending (why tf did the island have to sink?!? ) and a couple with no synergy at all. Not to mention that Mike's "reset button" is highly unrealistic and borderline offensive, and the being able to control all his personalities at will thing is just cheesy and unnecessary. TDAS could've been a great return of everyone's favorite characters, but this episode, Sundae Muddy Sundae, and The Big, Bold, and The Booty-Full just completely prevented it from being good. I'm disappointed in the writers, and I hope if they do have another season, ...more

Keep in mind it took TWO people to make this episode, TWO. This episode is pathetic in every way. The jokes are cheesy (which is typical late TDAS-TDPI), and there are countless terrible moments in this episode.

First off, the balloons. Making the balloons fly away was so unnecessary. They could have used those ten seconds to do something more productive, such as a joke or an intern quickly popping all the balloons.

Second off, the pointless cameo. Owen's cameo was poorly executed and he seemed to be exaggerated significantly. Alex Ganetakos, message to you: THAT WAS NOT FUNNY. Not even a bit.

The reset button. I could go on for eons about the reset button. It's not only anticlimactic and boring, but it's offensive to people with MPD. While Mike himself was pretty accurate about the disorder itself, the reset button was anything but. I'm serious, the reset button might even top the final part I hate!

The challenge. Lame and predictable for the TD writers. ...more

Sure Sundae Muddy Sundae was a horrible episode but the final wreck ending was just awful there was nothing interesting but this episode and I thought Total Drama Action and Pahketew Island had bad endings All stars ending was horrible finale to finish a horrible season

Get this to #1! Now we will never know where Lindsay, Courtney, Sam, Scott, Jo, Lightning, Sierra, or Duncan are! Remember the balloon scene? Worst moment ever, next to Wawanakwa sinking, and that is in this episode too!

6 I See London

Okay writers and storyboarders of Total Drama, We all understand Duncan is one of the most popular characters in the show, However have you not seen how mad people got when Justin was replaced with Courtney in Action? Well let's screw everything up again! This episode is awesome, Noah proved he can hold an episode with minimal help and we had a lot of Tyler, Owen, and Gwen and Courtney becoming friends. It was funny! Every background character was brought to the foreground and it looked like things were finally going to work in a new player's favor. Amazons win. Why? Just why? We all heard the challenge and just because Duncan is back doesn't mean we're happy Team Chris is Really Really Really Really hot lost. But you know what if it's a reward and they add an extra payer what harm can it do? Screw that! Duncan is now replacing Noah, who almost every fan was now getting to like, he didn't just join the team he replaced one member! I hate what Duncan did in World Tour after this ...more

Let me list afew reasons why this is my third worst episode...
1. Duncan returned, seriously? Why come back for another season if you have already won... Screen hog... He seems to fit his way into the final 10 at the least and is just an ass.
2. The winners. We know that Heather has to win sometime, so why not make them win again! Yes! We want them to go far because plot! Everyone on that team has a plot! At least they lose sometime.
3. Noah. Lets face it, Noah's elimination was pretty obvious, here is why they eliminated Noah.
Alejandro cannot be eliminated cause plot
Tyler was already planned to be eliminated in the next episode and
Duncan and Owen because the writers praise them.
So basically Noah had no plot, writers don't love him and that the writers decide to boot his booty of early!

I like this episode. I like the song. Noah was awesome in this episode, and I loved Noah and Owens friendship. Then there leads the problem. NOAH WAS UNFAIRLY VOTED OFF! His team found the correct Jack the Ripper whilst team amazon found Duncan, yet they win? This leads to the elimination and Noah, my favorite character, gets eliminated

As much as I enjoyed the episode, the ending must be one of the biggest middle finger scenes where our favorite character gets kicked off because they lose the challenge for no reason at all and having a screenhog character we loathe replacing one of our beloved characters we wanted to win...this is dumb... - Gehenna

7 Scarlett Fever

Not because Max left (he doesn't fit the Total Drama mold at all) but because of what they did to Scarlett. Scarlett could have saved Pahkitew Island from sucking because she was AMAZING - funnier than Noah, possibly. Then, out of nowhere, she's a supervillain?!? Why? Why destroy such a good character?

I love how out of all the characters to take down Scarlett it was Max. Max truly was Pahkitew Island's king of evil. To bad he got voted out he was hilarious

The only problems I had with this episode is that Scarlett is reaaalyy annoying and Max should not have left the island.

They unfairly voted out Max and they turned Scarlett into a weird pyscopath nobody likes

8 Picnic at Hanging Dork

Gwen's elimination was very unfair, and no one looked very good in this episode, either.

To be honest, I wasn't a huge fan of this episode. It wasn't very funny and I felt sorry for Gwen when she got voted off. If I was in the episode, I would have pushed Courtney off the plane and gave Gwen some tissues.

Gwen got eliminated for her ALLERGIES.

9 The Aftermath III: O-wen or Lose
10 Million Dollar Babies

Why would Harold believe that. what. I was really hoping to see Duncan go this episode, I had hope next episode and Lindsay voted for herself. I feel like they were literally trying so hard to keep Duncan because he is a "fan favorite" but most people I know who watch it, dislike Duncan, as do I.

Your telling me that Heather was voted out by Harold, her only friend besides Cody? And Harold voted with Duncan instead? What? Harold could of got his friend Heather and Girlfriend Leshawna into the merge, but instead chooses his mortal enemy. -_-

Gotta gotta Hate hate courtney after this danm stupid episode that ruined tda

The Contenders
11 Rock n' Rule

"Hey, you know Owen who we already eliminated and will obviously not win this season since he won the last season, and who nobody really wants back? Let's put him back in the game. And you know Lindsay, the character 400% of our viewers want to win? Let's eliminate her through the worst elimination in the history of our show".

Lindsay did not deserve to be eliminated. The challenges were absolutely boring (classic total drama action). At the time I was actually pretty happy Owen was returning. When I found out he was working for Chris I hated this episode even more. Lindsay's elimination was almost as bad as Bridgette's in Season 1.

How is this episode not higher?! It was not executed well at all. Stupid elimination that was done awfully, I mean, why was Lindsay of all contestants eliminated? Almost everyone was rooting for her. My personal least favorite episode of all of Season 2, and maybe of all time.

Owen Returned -_- why? In typical TDA fashion, More Duncan favoritism and boring challenge, and Lindsay was eliminated. This makes for a very bad episode. Duncan survives three straight eliminations and laughs like a douche when Lindsay voted herself off. What an ass I don't know why people like him.

12 The Big Sleep

This is the episode were They have to stay awake as long as they can. LAME.

This is when the challenge is the awakathon. It was boring all you did is watch people try to stay awake.

This is one of the only bad Total Drama Island episodes. It wasnt that bad but it was really boring. The challenge was to stay awake as long as you can.

They eliminated my favorite character -_-

13 I Love You, Grease Pig

This episode wasn't good but it wasn't bad either

It's an under hated episode. While I was glad to see Leanord leave, I was disappointed with the challenge and the interactions, although Jasmine and Sammy bonding was a good thing. That and it was an obvious elimination. - Turkeyasylum

Phakitew and everyone and everything in it sucks

14 The Aftermath: IV


15 3:10 to Crazytown

This should be above I See London and Scarlett Fever, those are actually good episodes (Except for Noah's unfair elimination and the Gwencan kiss) 3:10 is horrible, as it derailed Trent into insanity and broke up one of the best couples in Total Drama

I hated the episode as producers put Gwen as a traitor, and she was not the fault of Trent manias. Duncan not orchestrated the separation anyone, he simply assumed that Trent mania to do everything 9 times was related to Gwen, because clearly he was obsessed and the number of letters forming the name of the two amounted to 9, and Trent had not this mania in Total Drama Island.

Lamest challenges ever. Worst season ever. I loved Duncan. Until he literaly orchestrated Gwen and Trent's breakup. Seriously Gwen, ditched Trent because Trent's grandpa gave him a train with nine wheels. This should be number one, or at least in the top 10. Cruel Gwen, cruel

Completely ruined Trent. Why just why? He and Gwen had the most liked relationship in the show but they end it so they can put Gwen with Duncan because that "makes more sense" and also ended the second most liked couple of Courtney and Duncan

16 Lies, Cries, and One Big Prize

Chris was a JERK in this episode. We were all looking forward to the finale of this season, especially since Sugar wasn't in it. It has the same problems the TDAS finale has: it doesn't feature all the season's contestants AND it has a terrible ending. After Hurl And Go Seek, we knew Dave and Sky were a train wreck, but we didn't know it was THIS bad. Sky was already DATING SOMEONE ELSE when she had a crush on Dave. Right now, I bet Sky and Keith are broken up. Both the finale canidates were dreadful... Where's Scarlett when you need her? The ending has to be the second worst part. Chris abandoned Dave on Pahkitew Island showing no concern for him. That was his second most sinister act to date, behind the balloned eight.n

I was actually mad to see Dave go crazy and without a full resolution this episode thoroughly made me annoyed and really Sky and Dave not ending up with each other wasn't truly believable

Chris left behind Dave. To this day I do not know what happened to Dave. Do you know? I will just assume he is the new Ezekiel ( Total Drama World Tour ).

Chris evades punishment once again. Thanks again, Terry McGurrin!

17 Riot On Set
18 Finders Creepers

This episode is one of my favorites ever

What was the whole purpose of a non-elimination episode anyway? - Turkeyasylum

This episode is so horrible.

19 If You Can't Take The Heat...

No offense to Owen, but why was Beth eliminated? The idiots on her team believed that the tiki doll caused them to lose the challenge? No, idiots, it was your fault for leaving Owen with the food. So really, Owen should have been eliminated in this episode - HollyleafOfThunderClan

The second worst in TDI - quizmint

a classic - nonamegame

20 One Million Bucks, B.C

Lindsay should not have fallen into the tar

21 Moon Madness

I was REALLY happy when Gwen broke up with Duncan. I'm just sad that Duncan didn't get back together with Courtney again. He obviously still had some feelings for her.

While happy to see Duncan and Gwen break up, they executed it so terribly. And they made a lot of characters look weak in favor of Mal.

They had an amazing idea for a challenge, and the way they did it was the biggest challenge flop I've ever seen. Not to mention the rushed Gwuncan break. Gwen basically said it was over without reason or buildup. - Turkeyasylum

Sucks because everythins switch around and Duncan and gwen Up. :(.

22 Wawanakwa Gone Wild

How is this #4? THere are like at least 40 Episodes that should be above this - alexcousins

What season had this?

23 Hide and Be Sneaky

Heather kissed Trent and Trent's eliminated for that! Also it could've and should've Heather's elimination.

I hated this episode because I love Bridgette so much!

Quizmint, wrong episode. It's Search and Do Not Destroy you're talking about.

Dumbest. Elimination. Ever.

24 Food Fright

How much hatred does this show have for Ezekiel? - Gehenna

I despise this episode! My 9th least favorite.
