It is rated of TV-PG or TV-PG-D for Cartoon Network. Total Drama Island is a show that is similar to Survivor taking place at Camp Wawanakwa which takes place in Muskoka, Ontario.
This season was about twenty-two teenage contestants signed up for a show on an island known as "Camp Wawanakwa" or "Total Drama Island." The teens thought that they were going to be on a show called "I Wanna Be Famous," where they live in a mansion and "play guitars and have a great time." According to Chris, to be on the show, you had to be at least 16 years old, and "kooky, obnoxious, stuck-up, dense, loud, annoying, filthy, or anywhere remotely in between." The twenty-two teens are divided into two separate teams, the Screaming Gophers and the Killer Bass. The two teams were given challenges and every three days, the losing team would vote a contestant off. The losing contestant must walk the Dock of Shame, arrive to the Boat of Losers, which will then take the losing camper away. This process continues on until only one person remains on the island. The last contestant standing will win $100,000 in prize money.
