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.
According to Chris, a contestant won't ever return once he/she walks the Dock of Shame in Total Drama Island, walks the Walk of Shame in Total Drama Action, takes the Drop of Shame in Total Drama World Tour, gets thrown by the Hurl of Shame in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, gets flushed by the Flush of Shame in Total Drama All-Stars, or gets shot out of the Cannon of Shame in Total Drama: Pahkitew Island. However, in No Pain, No Game, Izzy and Eva are brought back to the competition by the producers, despite having been eliminated already, which prompts Chris to say that he lied.
Several contestants, including Lindsay, DJ, and Heather in Total Drama Island, Cody in Total Drama World Tour, Gwen in Total Drama All-Stars, and Jasmine and Sugar in Total Drama: Pahkitew Island, have left in sudden-death eliminations. Others, such as DJ in Total Drama Action, Duncan and Harold in Total Drama World Tour, and Anne Maria in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, have willingly quit the competition, despite their teams winning, there being no elimination, or someone else on their team getting voted off. Izzy in Total Drama World Tour and Cameron in Total Drama All-Stars, have been automatically removed from the competition due to suffering from serious injuries that prevented them from competing.
