The Chill Zone, where teams qualify or not for the next destination.

Elimination is the process in Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race where a team is removed from the competition.

Unlike Total Drama, the process for the Ridonculous Race is less complex, as the last team to arrive at the Chill Zone are cut from the competition, unless it's a non-elimination round. Teams are not told in advance which leg is a non-elimination round as Don normally states "The last team to arrive may be eliminated" for the final challenge of the episode. There is, however, one irregular elimination, in which the Best Friends had to be removed from the competition, despite not coming in last place due to Devin sustaining serious injuries.

  • Unlike in The Amazing Race, teams who arrive last in non-elimination legs do not suffer any kind of penalty, such as turning over all their money and belongings other than the clothes they are wearing, or being marked for elimination, that is, enduring a 30-minute penalty if they don't arrive first during the next leg.
