Melissa "Mel", labeled The Clubber is the female contest winner of the TDDO OC Contest. She was a contestant in Total Drama World Tour Do Over as the season antagonist, formerly self proclaimed captain of Team Pickle, and was transferred as a member of Team Athens. She returned as a competitor in Total Drama All Stars Do Over as a member of the Villainous Vultures. She will return once more in Total Drama Pahkitew Do Over as a member of Waneyihtam Maskwak, the Confused Bears.
Mel's carefree, live-for-the-moment lifestyle has always been the epitome of "you only live once", even before the phrase was popular. Growing up with her parents and big sister Roxanne, Mel tended to follow her older sister and friends' examples. Nowadays, she lives in a cruddy apartment with her sister and takes joy in breaking the rules and pushing her limits to the extreme, throwing the wildest parties imaginable. (Heck, you'd probably think you imagined it when you wake up the next morning, if you remember it at all.) Mel also has a knack for using her appearance to lure boys into her life of danger and mess with their minds. When she ran into trouble with the police once (of many times), nearly getting arrested, she managed to bribe the cops with "favors" of their choice. Of course, that's not to say Mel isn't weak to the attraction of others- she gets bored with her boyfriends within the hour and seeks out new, titillating experiences. One boy she has yet to be bored with is Duncan, though- something about that bad boy attitude draws her in. She wants to make a scene on television, and meet Duncan in the meantime. Who knows? She might just get lucky.

In So, Uh, This Is My Team?, Mel was placed on the Waneyihtam Maskwak. Mel gained an instant infatuation for Harrison as well. Charlotte, through Harrison, warned Mel that Harrison was taken. Mel immediately backed off, to everyone's surprised.

Mel discovered her own romantic preferences after befriending Harrison, and her options widened. In Pitching Pahkapella, Mel kisses Charlotte, which causes Charlotte to finally call it off with Trent publicly. They keep their relationship a secret until Nathaniel discovers what's happening in Mo Monkey Mo Problems.
