This is the first season of the Total Drama series and has 26 episodes, each 22 minutes in duration  with a special 44 minute episode at the end. The season is mostly a parody of the series Survivor , and features 22 campers in an elimination-based competition. On Cartoon Network, airing in the United States, some content has been removed from the episodes by censors in order to keep the rating open to a younger audience; for example, putting in words instead of long bleeps , and censoring of sensitive body parts, for the episodes "That's Off the Chain" and "Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon". The fourth season, Total Drama: Revenge of the Island , takes place on the same island as this season, but with an all-new cast. Total Drama Island is set in the fictional titular reality show, which follows the competition of 22 unsuspecting and unknowing teenagers at Camp Wawanakwa, the most rundown, bug-infested, disgusting island located in an unspecified area in Muskoka , Ontario. The campers participate in competitions and challenges which get more insane and dangerous each week to avoid being voted off the island by their fellow campers and teammates. The competition is hosted by Chris McLean, assisted by the camp's chef, Chef Hatchet, who is also Chris' best friend despite being mistreated at times. Egotistical and immoral, unless something affects him legally, Chris places the show's contestants in various life-threatening challenges. At the beginning of the season, the twenty-two year-old campers are placed into two groups of eleven, the "Screaming Gophers" and the "Killer Bass". In each episode, the teams participate in a challenge, in which one or more campers can win invincibility for their team.

They are then woken up by a plane flying overhead. The winning team not only wins invincibility , but are also allowed the use of a mobile shower. Owen is unimpressed, but Heather , desperate for a proper shower, orders him to perform.
Heather was Total Drama 's first villain. Famously manipulative, Heather knows what she wants and exactly how to get it. Her strategic smarts have proven effective, eliminating a record amount of contestants.
