View this page for statistics about the various campfire ceremonies.

The Campfire Ceremony is the elimination ceremony that took place at the campfire pit in Total Drama Island, Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, Total Drama All-Stars, and Total Drama: Pahkitew Island. Before the ceremony takes place, the losing team or each individual votes in the confessional for the camper that they wish to eliminate from the contest. During the ceremony, the remaining players (except for the eliminated contestant) are given marshmallows as a symbol of safety, while the loser is left empty-handed (or with a Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island) and must take the elimination exit off the island.

At the beginning of Total Drama Island, the campers are divided into two teams, named the Killer Bass and the Screaming Gophers. The team that loses the day's challenge is sent to the ceremony, while the team that wins earns invincibility and does not take part in the ceremony. After the merge in No Pain, No Game, all of the remaining campers attend the ceremony, with the immune camper usually receiving the first marshmallow. 

Chris hands out marshmallows to the campers, and whoever does not receive a marshmallow is eliminated. The camper who is voted off must walk down the Dock of Shame and then must catch a ride on the Boat of Losers. Chris claims that they can never come back, however, this is a lie. Instead of being sent home, the contestants are sent to a five-star resort known as Playa Des Losers with the rest of the eliminated campers.

In Awwwwww, Drumheller, Chris pays tribute to the first season's campfire ceremonies during the Barf Bag Ceremony, holding the ceremony outside in front of a makeshift bonfire. There are strings of lights similar to the ones at the original setting strung between two tiki statues, and he hands out marshmallows instead of barf bags. However, he never finished the ceremony as Sierra accidentally blew up the Total Drama Jumbo Jet.

Campfire Ceremony in B!B!B!

The campfire ceremony's location is the same in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, but with toxic waste barrels replacing some of the logs.

The Campfire Ceremony returns in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island. However, instead of the eliminated person not receiving a marshmallow, they receive the Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom, instead.

Total Drama All-Stars

Just like Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, the Campfire Ceremony is used once again. Like the first season, the person who does not receive a marshmallow is eliminated. However, instead of the winners not attending the elimination, they get to be in the peanut gallery and one of the members of the winning team get the opportunity to be sent to exile on Boney Island to hopefully look for the Invincibility Statue.

The new location of the campfire ceremony used in Total Drama: Pahkitew Island.

The marshmallow ceremony returns and functions in identical ways to the previous seasons, particularly Total Drama Island. Since the season is set on a new island, the elimination ceremony is set in a new location, on an extended platform away from the rest of the island, near the Cannon of Shame.
