Worst Total Drama Episodes
The Top Ten
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.
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!
I love the Mike and Zoey finale because of the kiss scene. So shut up! - MeeMeeCandy777
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.
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
Dave went absolutely insane in this episode. Ruined his character forever.
Total Drama could have done great things with Dave. Well not after this episode he is ruined
The jokes all relied on cheesy gross-outs, the entire episode was pointless, and DAVE GOT DERAILED. Need I say more? - Turkeyasylum
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. - Cartoonnetworkfan1990
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
This was Trash!
Has TDAS really gone this low? Poop Jokes?! There is nothing funny about poop jokes at all.
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
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 - Turkeyasylum
This final two was awful, and we got the obvious ending that we all DREADED. In my opinion, if he wasn't gonna stay Mal forever, they should have made Mal end like 6 episodes sooner
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
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 - Gronk27
This is the episode where Noah gets voted off and Gwuncan starts to grow.
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
This episode is amazing in my opinion. Had me laughing the whole runtime - Spongehouse
This is when Scarlett took over the island.
They unfairly voted out Max and they turned Scarlett into a weird pyscopath nobody likes
This is when Scarlett tries to take over the island
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
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.
Courtney Should Have Been Eliminated Instead Of Gwen - Cartoonnetworkfan1990
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 - coolguy101
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 -_-
"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". - Puga
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.
Lindsay had a bad elimination
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.
I ONLY DID THIS BECAUSE HERE IN Australia BETH WINS DUNCAN ROCKS HE EASILY SHOULD'VE WON
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
I mean I know some of those All-Stars episodes were bad but you'd think 3:10 To Crazytown would be at least top 10. This season was actually quite good before this episode but this episode changed everything, for the worst
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
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.
Yes, this episode was a crime but the real crime is that it's not in the top 3
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.
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 - Turkeyasylum
At least we get a new host next year in 2015. Don was absolutely better than Chris. - SanDiegoSalvatierra
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 ). - Skullkid755
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 evades punishment once again. Thanks again, Terry McGurrin!
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
Lindsay should not have fallen into the tar
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. :(.
How is this #4? THere are like at least 40 Episodes that should be above this - alexcousins
What season had this?
Heather kissed Trent and Trent's eliminated for that! Also it could've and should've Heather's elimination. - quizmint
I hated this episode because I love Bridgette so much! - MeeMeeCandy777
Dumbest. Elimination. Ever.
Quizmint, wrong episode. It's Search and Do Not Destroy you're talking about.
No One Liked Seeing Gwen Crie - Cartoonnetworkfan1990
How much hatred does this show have for Ezekiel? - Gehenna
I despise this episode! My 9th least favorite. - quizmint
This is actually a very good episode
The challenges were boring.
This episode is actually
I was stupid and thought there was no song but now I realize I accidently skipped through it...
it's a ripoff of niagara falls
Pretty stupid to the babies and the challenge made no sense.
Why would Chris put adorable, innocent babies in danger?! Just why?!
Lightning got derailed SO MUCH in this episode. He wanted to kill Cameron throughout the episode. Talk about going too far? - Turkeyasylum
Lighting was my favorite this season besides Jo and they totally ruined him! Plus it created An all Male finale :/
This episode is actually good
I loved this episode. It was the start of the great total drama franchise
Why is this on the list, let alone the top TEN? - Turkeyasylum
The Ridonculous Race was absolutely amazing! Watch it and you wont regret it. If you are not a fan of Noah the Ridonculous Race will make you into one! Plus Dodge Brawl was a great episode. I'm glad in Total Drama World Tour Tyler remembered Lindsay and Total Drama explores that relationship more
I loved this episode
Gwen and Courtney were horrendously out of character, Zoey was permanently dumbed down after just one episode, Duncan's season-long character development was thrown in the garbage for a cheap gag, Mal and Alejandro form an alliance only for it to immediately not matter, and Cameron was saved from elimination AGAIN for no reason AGAIN. And none of the jokes are even that funny. :/
Why did they do this? Amongst all the eliminations of this season (maybe the entire series) Duncan's was tied for the worst with Courtney's. Also characters were just out of character. This threw Duncan's, my favorite character, character development down the toilet, despite him not going in an actual flush of shame.
This is a great episode. You can feel the tension, and for once watching the show I felt bad for Chris! Ezekiel plays a big role in this episode, and I honestly wanted him to get his revenge on Chris for all the bad things he's done to him. Can you really blame Zeke? I mean, Chris literally makes a list of everything he's done to Zeke, right in front of him!
Worse than sunday muddy sundae in my opinion - nonamegame
Terrible episode that introduced Dakotazoid. Besides that monstrosity, the episode was super annoying, and when it wasn't that, it was boring.
its disgusting when sam farts
By the way, no pun intended
I think Devin and Carrie got annoying. Carrie just find a way to tell Devin! It is so annoying. Stephanie was ruined from the start but they ruined Ryan to by making him interfere with Devin and Carrie. I'm glad The Surfer Dudes are back and The Sisters were one of my favorite teams. This episode should make The Top Ten Best Total Drama Episodes.
Ugh. This episode was awful. By far the worst episode of TDRR. Let's be honest guys: everybody was hoping Carrie and Devin would win. But they were eliminated in the episode prior to this one. So Bahamarama really doesn't have any purpose. At least everybody's least favorite team got eliminated *cough* SISTERS! *cough*
I am so happy that THE SURFER DUDES WON!
I liked most of this. I liked that the surfers came back since devin got hurt. When the best friends were in front of the camera, all that went on was that Carrie was trying to convince Devin to be her boyfriend. I think this was a great episode and it shouldn’t be on the list
The episode made all the characters seem dull and one-dimensional. Blaineley and Chef had potential, but they put her in too late and eliminated her too early. Plus, she was actually funny in Niagra Brawls. In this episode? Not at all. - Turkeyasylum
Even though it was funny the challenges were boring.
The Total Drama Action challenges are really lame. 3;10 to Crazytown, Beach Blanket Bogus, and Rock'n Rule are all terrible Total Drama Action episodes.
Worst challenge ever. Seriously, a build your own sandcastle challenge.
Lamest challenge ever. Seriously, a build your own sandcastle challenge. LAME
Dave goes absolutely nuts. Dave calm down. Sky please help poor Dave. Jasmine, stop telling Sky to ignore Dave
I hate the episodes were Dave goes insane for Sky. Sky, please help the poor guy.
I feel so bad for Dave in this episode. I want Sky and Dave to end up together. I hate this episode. It is the worst one.
This is another episode were Dave goes insane.
Remember the dreadful ending of I See London? Well it's very obvious where it led too in the next episode! Honestly, if Duncan wouldn't have even came back, then this bullcrap wouldn't have even happened and Noah would have stayed! Also, this caused the end of Gwen and Courtney's friendship for the whole season, until Total Drama All Stars when they finally become friends again (only to have it ruined again by a writer we all loathe so much, and also made Courtney the target for hatred instead of Gwen) - Gehenna
The entire episode was about the love triangle. And after this are 2 more dreadful TDWT episodes. This one glorifies episodes like Sky Fall. - Turkeyasylum
I didn't see anything wrong with this episode, apart from DJ's animal curse.
Poor DJ they ruined him by giving him that dumb animal curse. This episode was very stressful to watch and I didn't enjoy it to well
Poor DJ. He is always killing animals. I feel so bad for him. This episode is a wreck.
I hated this episode for obvious reasons.
Loved it I hate Mike
Chris ruined Zoke's kiss!
Why is this on here it was a great episode.
JAY AND MICKEY THE BEST RIDONCULOUS RACE CHARACTERS IN MY OPINION GOT ELIMINATED
Not for top 10 But for top 25(the worst list)
Beth is so disgusting! She put her retainer back in her mouth even though it was covered in vomit!
Owen is not an antagonist. He is the fan favorite that every contestant besides Courtney like
Horrible. They made fan favorite Owen into a villain in this episode.
Owen is probably my favorite character. I got lucky by the time I finished watching this episode he was still my favorite.
Wow they made Owen into an antagonist. That is impressive in a bad way
