Watch Total Drama Action

Total Drama Action is an action/humor cartoon show that debuted in 2009. The main plot of the show is to see which contestant can survive all the challenges and mishaps that are thrown at them and become the final contender in the season finale. Whichever contestant does survive the challenges receive a million dollars and a lifetime of bragging rights.

This cartoon takes on similar characteristics of an reality television program including the confessional room(which is held in the make up trailer) and serves as an outlet for the contestants to express their true feelings. In Total Drama Action there are two teams comprised of fourteen players all on the hunt for the million dollar prize. The contests have moved to an abandoned movie studio and the challenges reflect popular movie themes.

Within the show the winners would receive small rewards for challenges they completed and the losers would vote off a member of their team. Whoever is voted off would have to take the walk of shame back home. Eventually, the show dwindles down to two contestants who must compete in one last challenge and see who is the best of the best.

Luckily, she's paid enough attention to her cast mates' lives that she can beat the trivia and therefore beat the clock too - so she winds up neck and neck in the race with Duncan!
