Both endings are official[edit]

After one person told me that "both endings are official, since it is shown where you live", I decided to share this with you:

Rank Name Team Episode eliminated in Reason Team status
Returns ♂ Duncan None 1st quit in
"Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 1"
Returns in "I See London..."
He refused to sing a reprise of "Come Fly With Us" after having to listen to Gwen and Courtney's bickering. Pre-teams
18 ♂ Ezekiel Team Victory 2nd voted out in
"Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 2"
He lost his team's advantage to the alligators so probably everyone on Team Victory vote him off. Non-merged
17 ♂ Harold Team Victory 3rd quit in
"Super Happy Crazy Fun Time in Japan"
He quit in place of DJ just to save his team's honor.
16 ♀ Bridgette Team Victory 4th voted out in
"Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better"
She got stuck to a pole, causing her team to lose.
15 ♀ Leshawna Team Victory 5th voted out in
"Slap Slap Revolution"
When she did slapped Heather and pushed her off the platform, she slapped her and jumped off the platform, and cost her team the win.
14 ♀ Lindsay Team Victory 6th eliminated in
"Can't Help Falling in Louvre"
In the tiebreaker challenge, her design was considered funny but not fashionable. As a result, DJ (who was trying to throw the challenge to get himself eliminated) was spared from elimination, much to his dismay.
13 ♀ Izzy
(Brainzilla)
Team Chris is Really4 Hot 7th left in
"Jamaica Me Sweat"
Although Izzy is not officially voted off, the government viewed her as an asset, removing Izzy from the game.
12 ♂ DJ Team Victory 8th eliminated in
"Jamaica Me Sweat"
He was the last standing member of Team Victory, and Alejandro cheated by setting up a piece of wood which made him be automatically eliminated. This was the first time an entire team was eliminated before the merger.
11 ♂ Noah Team Chris is Really4 Hot 9th cheated out in
"I See London..."
Alejandro discovered Noah's mistrust of him, so he convinced Tyler and Duncan to vote him off.
10 ♂ Tyler Team Chris is Really4 Hot 10th voted out in
"The Ex-Files"
He lost the challenge for Team Chris is Really Really Really Really Hot, when he was a victim of the landmines. Duncan also convinced Alejandro do not vote off for him so they can vote Tyler off.
9 ♀ Gwen Team Amazon 11th cheated out in
"Picnic at Hanging Rock"
She lost the tiebreaker challenge to Courtney, which was obviously rigged due to her eucalyptus allergy. Another reason for Gwen's elimination was because her kiss with Duncan was revealed two episodes back, courtesy of Alejandro and Tyler.
8 ♂ Owen Team Chris is Really4 Hot 12th voted out in
"Niagara Brawls"
Alejandro convinced Duncan, Heather, and Sierra to vote off Owen because he was a threat, knowing he won a previous season. Merged
7 / 6 ♀ Blaineley None 13th/14th voted out in
"Chinese Fake-out"
Heather spotted Blaineley, Alejandro and Courtney cheating in the final part of the challenge, as Blaineley had better food, and Alejandro crouched down to give his food to Courtney. Thanks to Heather, Blaineley and Courtney tied on votes. Instead of having a tiebreaker challenge, they were both sent packing, due to the show's budgetary constraints.
♀ Courtney Team Amazon
5 ♂ Duncan Team Chris is Really4 Hot 15th voted out in
"African Lying Society"
Heather and Alejandro voted him off in a 2-1-1-1 vote.
4 ♀ Sierra Team Amazon 16th disqualified in
"Awwwwww, Drumheller"
Even though Alejandro was originally supposed to be eliminated in that episode, Sierra interrupted the ceremony to get Cody's birthday cake. The firecrackers, which Sierra used in place of the actual candles, accidentally blew up the place and Chris' plane. In a fit of rage, Chris disqualified Sierra despite winning immunity that day.
3 ♂ Cody Team Amazon 17th eliminated in
"Hawaiian Punch"
Heather, hoping to beat Alejandro in a vote, managed to trick Cody by claiming that "Sierra was trapped in quicksand". This allowed Alejandro to knock out Cody.
2 / 1 ♂ Alejandro Team Chris is Really4 Hot Winner in
"Hawaiian Punch"
Alejandro won when Heather accidentally tossed his dummy in the volcano.
Runner-up in Heather's ending.
2 / 1 ♀ Heather Team Amazon Winner in
"Hawaiian Punch"
She manipulated Alejandro, which led to her victory.
Runner-up in Alejandro's ending.

Even though TDI is a Canadian show, I decided that both endings should be shown since they are technical (based on where any fan lives). Plus, If I were to do the same changes to the elimination tables, then I would replace the "WINNER" and "RUNNER UP" words with "FINALS", since both endings are canon.

Note 1: Although Alejandro won the World Tour in Canada, I put the list in alphabetical order, since his name comes much earlier in the alphabet than Heather's.

Note 2: The winner info on the Character pages will remain the same, because of the Canadian flag. RegularShow (talk) 00:08, 12 August 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose. The established practice is to use the country of origin for things like airdates, episode titles, and variations in plotlines. That seems to make the most sense here: use the Canadian ending as the main entry for the table and explain other endings in notes. —C.Fred (talk) 19:43, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
Agree with C.Fred, even though there are two valid winners for each season, this is a Canadian show, so we all go by the Canadian version of the season finale, and that goes for all the Total Drama related articles. Giggett (talk) 19:50, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
So what you're trying to prove is that despite the fact that neither of us (you and me) live in Canada, we have to follow C.Fred, both a wikipedia admin and a fan of Total Drama, and Teletoon's footsteps on the winners? 76.89.202.233 (talk) 23:33, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support: We should list two winners per season to appease the Non-Canadian fans. In that way, no one would alter the winners. 76.89.202.233 (talk) 23:16, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Sierra: Voted off or Eliminated[edit]

Not letting it return to a repeat of the Noah fiasco of "I See London...", I think it's best if we talk about suggesting changes for Sierra's elimination in "Suckers Punched". Was Sierra eliminated (due to an elimination twist where the Villainous Vultures picked off Sierra so she can return to the real Cody, as Cameron states it) or voted off (since the winners got to vote unanimously)? Place your thoughts. 76.89.202.233 (talk) 23:19, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Original air dates on episode lists[edit]

The "original" air dates listed for each episode on the episode lists are the Canadian air dates, even if the episodes aired in another country first. I think either the air dates should be changed to when they first aired ever or change the title to "Canadian air date." Also, I don't know how to reply to talk page posts, but I agree both endings should be considered official.Tdlover18 (talk) 23:32, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Canada is the country of origin where the series is first created, therefore it is best to add the air dates of the original network channel of that country of origin. Adding USA airdates for Total Drama and calling it "original" is like adding Australian airdates for the series, 24 and calling it "original". It doesn't matter who airs it first, Canada will always be the country of origin for this series, unless Cartoon Network takes on full production in the future.
