The series revolves survival programs by recounting the misadventures at Camp Wawanakwa, an island retreat where 22 teens compete in extreme challenges while vying for the $100,000 grand prize. Every three days, at a campfire ceremony, the host passes out marshmallows to players who are safe. The sad camper who doesn't get a marshmallow must walk down the Dock of Shame to the Boat of Losers, which will bear him back to his mundane life.
As of 2011, the first season has been shown in over 188 countries while the entire franchise has been seen in at least 100. The series has received incredible ratings, ranking #1 for the under-14 age group base throughout the series airing period on Cartoon Network. The series also has very involved fans who keep talking about the series throughout various online communities, while also inspiring them to create their own fanart and fanfictions. Cake Entertainment, the main distributor of the series, calls the show "phenomenally popular", while the creator of the series said that "For tweens around the world, Total Drama is more than just a parody of a reality show. It's THEIR reality show".
The Dock of Shame
The Dock of Shame refers to a series of memes based on a memorable scene from the 2007 animated reality show series Total Drama in which characters get eliminated and sent to the "dock of shame" from which they depart from the show. Starting in June 2020, the fictional location saw frequent use in memes, mainly through the efforts of an eponymous gimmick Twitter account.
Character Promo Parodies
"Characters Promo Parodies" are popular videos that edited some of the campers that have edited to other TV and movie characters and became popular on YouTube.
Elimination is the process in the Total Drama series where a contestant is removed from the competition, often occurring after they are voted for by the other members of their team or merged contestants. Eliminations usually occur during a Campfire, Awards, or Barf Bag Ceremony. Chris will hand out a marshmallow, Gilded Chris Award, or barf bag to the contestants who are safe, and whoever doesn't receive one is eliminated. Sometimes, no awards are handed out to anyone at all. Generally, elimination ceremonies happen after nightfall.
