This season involved forty five teenagers who had signed up to be in a reality show on an island, known as "Total Drama Island." on Camp Wawanakwa. The teens all had different expectations for what camp was going to be like, with the underlying idea that it was going to be luxurious. According to Chris, to be on the show, you have to be a teenager and be either "kooky, obnoxious, stuck-up, dense, loud, annoying, filthy, or anywhere remotely in between." The forty five teens chosen were divided into three separate teams; the Screaming Gophers,the Killer Bass and the Rabid Ducks. The three teams were given challenges every three days. The two losing teams would vote one of their members off and the contestants that were voted off would have to walk the Dock of Shame and board the Boat of Losers, which would then take them away. At some point in the competition, the teams would dissolve. After the merge the same elimination process would continue to happen, except then after every challenge only one to two people had invincibility and after every other challenge, two contestants would win super immunity, securing their safety for two straight episodes. At elimination, they would as a whole group have to vote two people out instead of just the teams. This process continued until only two people were left to compete in a final challenge where the seasonwinner would win $100,000,000.
This is the process in Total Drama Island in which a camper is eliminated; initially, the team that lost the most recent challenge, unless the last challenge happened to be a reward challenge, would vote for a camper and the one with the most votes against them would be voted off the island. Since the teams eventually merged, all the campers began to vote for each other and only the challenge winner received immunity. In certain challenges, a camper would be automatically eliminated without any votes if they lost a challenge after the merge.
