Top Ten Worst Moments of Unnecessary Cruelty in Total DramaYou 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
Feral Zeke was the most cruel thing the Total Drama writers have ever came up with. Ezekiel just wanted to win, but got voted off first for losing the reward. And about that elimination... Harold should have been voted off, he suggested bopping the alligator in the head, which made Ezekiel lost the stick. Ezekiel wasn't sexist as of TDWT, maybe he was a gangsta wannabe, but that didn't make him deserve THIS.
Look, nobody deserved the immense pain they got on total drama. the difference is? the villains were given pain for what they have done, even if it was too far, it was payback. zeke did absolutely nothing. he learned from his sexism, and moved on. yeah, he was annoying, but he DID NOT hurt ANYONE on the show until feral zeke appeared.
I have no idea why they did this. It's not funny or entertaining. It's honestly just MEAN. I got so mad when they did this. Bring back ZEKE! you know...the real one
What's total drama like? Like my friend put it on at his house but then we went out in the garden and didn't get to see it.
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...
I can't believe this isn't #1. I unikitty raged!
Dakota(zoid) was an awesome, kind character throughout the season and NEVER DESERVED THIS! :
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.
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.
Wasn't this a Star Wars parody?
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.
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).
Who honestly thought this was FUNNY?
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.
This is the episode that Chris ruins Dave and Sky's relationship, and for this he is a loser for doing so. He's just jealous that he's single and bitter.
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!
Didn't Chris learn a lesson with Ferral Zeke?
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.
Wow, starving the people who work for you... Chris was originally funny... but now... I hate him!
Chris deserves to be decapitated for this.
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.
