This article focuses on the interactions between everyone and Zoey.
As an only child from a small town, Zoey joined Total Drama to make new and diverse friends. Initially, she is mostly shy, naive, and often required help from her friends during challenges, but she manages to develop confidence over time and starts to become more independent. Her kind nature allows her to make friends with the other campers. During her time in the competition, she often helps her fellow contestants even if they are on opposing teams or someone she dislikes. However, her over-trusting nature has been exploited by several manipulative contestants.
Zoey knows that Alejandro cannot be trusted due to his past actions throughout Total Drama World Tour. In the opening sequence, Alejandro is seen taking down Zoey with a jousting stick when the Villainous Vultures and Heroic Hamsters are battling.
In The Obsta-Kill Kourse, Zoey is convinced by Mal that Alejandro refused to help Cameron in the previous episode, and left him to fall. Zoey then conveys this information to Gwen, who also agrees that Alejandro should be voted off that night. Later, Alejandro stops Zoey hoping to warn her about Mal, but she lashes out at him and tells him to leave her alone. When Alejandro is voted off and he sees Zoey embrace Mal, he cannot understand how she can be so blind and is annoyed by her ignorance when he states that "maybe they are perfect for each other". However, Zoey begins to take Alejandro's warning into consideration after she hears him call Mike "Mal" before the final part of the challenge, and also when he exclaims before being flushed, "The truth is in the art".
Zoey still has problems trying to decipher Alejandro's cryptic message in Sundae Muddy Sundae. Infuriated with the complications, Zoey mocks Alejandro in the confessional, calling him "hot and infuriating, right to the end".
In The Bold and the Booty-ful, Zoey finds the hidden DVD and finally understands his message.
As both girls share the same feelings for their teammate Mike, Zoey and Anne Maria become fierce rivals, often fighting for Mike's affection. However, Zoey is unaware of Mike's alternate personalities at the time and only his tough side, Vito is attracted to Anne Maria, while Mike himself likes Zoey. Aside from fighting over Mike, Anne Maria often mocks Zoey and disagrees with any ideas she comes up with. In the end, Mike chooses Zoey over Anne Maria after he manages to gain control of his alternate personalities. Anne Maria is clearly not happy with the two of them together, as she is seen glaring at them during the finale.
In Truth or Laser Shark, Zoey thanks Brick for taking one for the team when he admits that he wet himself in his first and last day of school.
In A Mine Is a Terrible Thing to Waste, Brick decides to rescue Zoey, Cameron and Mike from a mutant gopher (with his moral code meaning more than winning), causing his team to lose the challenge. Before he takes the Hurl of Shame, Zoey, along with Cameron and Mike, bids him goodbye by giving him a salute.
Cameron and Zoey become good friends during their time in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island. While Zoey often helps Cameron during challenges (due to him being physically weak as well as a lack of confidence), Cameron helps her to improve her relationship with Mike, and to strategize with one another. After the merge, the two of them form an alliance in order to eliminate Scott and Lightning, which fails when Lightning wins the semi-final episode. After their friendship is tested (then repaired), Zoey is eliminated in The Enchanted Franken-Forest, which both are shocked by. In the finale of season four, Zoey sides with him over Lightning and is occasionally seen cheering for him.
In Total Drama All-Stars, the two of them and Mike are once again placed on the same team until Cameron switches teams in Moon Madness. After the merge, the three of them form an alliance to reach the final three together. However, Cameron and Zoey begin to suspect that something is wrong with Mike he becomes unable to summon his alternate personalities. Little do they know, Mike has an evil personality named Mal that has been impersonating Mike for some time. After Mal gets Cameron eliminated, Zoey promises to keep an eye on Mike for him. Cameron eventually returns as Zoey's helper in the finale where they work together to defeat Mal.
Initially, Zoey and Chef have very little interaction with each other. However they develop a conflict in Eat, Puke and Be Wary, after Chef shoots Zoey with his meatball launcher, causing her to fall into a ravine. During the fall, the medallion Mike gave her before he left broke. Already stressed from Mike's elimination, Zoey takes on a more aggressive side and prepares to exact her revenge on Chef. Throughout the episode, Zoey sets up traps for Chef and ambushes him using guerrilla tactics. Chef, at this point, realizes that he may have pushed her too far. In the next episode, Zoey makes a slingshot out of a fork and shoots Chef with an egg.
In The Final Wreck-ening, after Chris criticizes Chef for his poor aim, Zoey compliments Chef by telling Chris that Chef is trying his best, to which Chef responds by saying "Aw, thanks sweety!" He tries to shoots Zoey in Mike's ending but does not hit her.
In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Chris teases Zoey for having a lonely childhood, embarrassing her in front of the other contestants. In Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon, Zoey decides to quit the show, after having enough with the life-threatening challenges. She changes her mind however after Chris shows her the contents of the million-dollar briefcase.
In Sundae Muddy Sundae, Zoey has trouble trying to sleep with all the portraits of Chris in her room. Suddenly, Chris pops out from one of them to sign off the episode, scaring Zoey.
In The Bold and the Booty-ful, Zoey is annoyed by Chris who keeps complaining about the Spa Hotel's condition and gets rid of him by lying that she needs to use the bathroom. During the challenge, Zoey destroys one of Chris' loudspeakers as he is speaking too loud and might attract Sasquatchanakwa's attention.
In Evil Dread, Courtney is against Zoey's plan and tells their team that they should follow her plan instead, only for Cameron to highlight that it is exactly the same thing Zoey came up with. Courtney then reluctantly agrees to follow the plan that Zoey came up with, while still trying to take credit for it.
In Saving Private Leechball, Courtney feels threatened after seeing Zoey's athletic abilities, and admits in the confessional that she needs to be eliminated the next time their team loses. When Courtney suggests that she stay in the cave to guard Sam, Zoey believes that Courtney is doing this out of kindness while in reality, Courtney is just using them as pawns while she lays back and does nothing.
In The Obsta-Kill Kourse, Zoey comforts Courtney after she and Scott broke up in the previous episode and cheers her up by telling her she scored major points by kissing two boys in one episode. Courtney thanked her and tells her not to tell Gwen about her kissing Cameron, which she promises to. However, Courtney later saw her and Gwen discussing something, and believes that they are forming an alliance. She later confronts them while they are talking, believing that they are talking about her and Cameron kissing, inadvertently revealing the secret to Gwen.
In Sundae Muddy Sundae, Courtney reveals that she is planning to eliminate Zoey next. After Gwen returns from Boney Island, Courtney tries to make sure Gwen and Zoey do not bond any further, by telling Gwen to not trust her and they should eliminate her as quickly as possible. After Mike reveals Courtney's plan to the others, Zoey surprisingly didn't seem to be angry and instead questions her boyfriend's motives.
With no other options and allies left, Courtney tries to ask Zoey to form an alliance with her by complimenting her athletic skills, but Zoey refuses as she is disgusted with the way Courtney treated Gwen. In the swamp, when Zoey gets her feet stuck, Courtney simply passes by her and taunts her for refusing to join her, leaving Zoey to be attacked by an alligator. Later, Courtney again tries to convince Gwen to vote off Zoey while they are at the main lodge, to no avail.Mutant Maggots. She finds Zoey as the only person she is willing to be friends with in public due to her appearance. Throughout The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, Zoey has to comfort Dakota who repeatedly hugs her in an effort to gain consolation. After her mutation is complete, the now monstrous-size Dakota protects her new friend from a mutant alligator when they are in the bayou. At the elimination ceremony, Zoey joins Scott to vote off Dakota, as she didn't want a "friendship that can potentially damage her health". Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Zoey is seen interacting with Dawn once the contestants have reached the beach. Dawn then comments on how lonely Zoey was in her childhood after reading her aura and comforts her by holding her hands. Zoey is creeped out by Dawn's weird knowledge of her and quickly flinches.
In Backstabbers Ahoy!, Dawn again comforts Zoey, who is heartbroken after seeing Mike (as Vito) flirting with Anne Maria. She attempts to cheer Zoey up by saying that Mike really likes her according to his aura, at least the "Mike parts". As Zoey asks her what she means, Dawn disappears. In the confessional, Zoey admits that she finds Dawn creepy and believes that she may be a wizard.
Zoey is one of the few people who knows that Duncan is not entirely a bad person at heart. Although Duncan is initially frustrated by his new "hero" status, he quickly warms up to Zoey. Meanwhile, Duncan finds out that Mike was a fellow inmate of him during his early days at juvie. Knowing how dangerous he is, Duncan warns Zoey about Mike, and she believes him as she herself has a suspicion of Mike recently.
Gwen and Zoey do not have any interactions in Total Drama All-Stars until the merge, due to them being on different teams. The two of them first bond in Zeek And Ye Shall Find after Zoey finds Gwen alone underground (due to her fear). For the next few episodes, they often make jokes about the challenges they are going to face. While their friendship is slightly strained in Sundae Muddy Sundae (due to the efforts of Courtney and Mal), they do not turn on each other. The two of them also bid each other goodbye before Gwen takes the Flush of Shame in The Bold and the Booty-ful with Gwen telling her that Zoey has her full support and that she would be cheering for her to win in the finale while Zoey wishes to be on the same team as her the next time that they compete on the show.
When Heather arrives in Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon, Zoey is initially excited to see her but when she attempts to greet her, Heather calls her a loser and says she does not associate with them.Finders Creepers, Jo shows no concern for Zoey after she is captured by the giant spider, and tells her team to move forward without her. In Backstabbers Ahoy!, Jo is aware of Zoey's jealousy towards Anne Maria and Mike and tells her to use that anger against the opposing team in the next challenge.
In Saving Private Leechball, Zoey takes on Jo at the cave where Courtney and Sam were hiding. Both throw insults at one another, before shooting one another with leeches. After dodging one of Jo's attacks, Zoey successfully shoots Jo with one of the leeches, eliminating Jo from the challenge and winning the challenge for her team for the second time.
Zoey has had more encounters with the mutated plant than any other contestant.
In The Enchanted Franken-Forest, the contestants are tasked to steal a flower from Larry, Chris' mutated Venus Flytrap that he left after Total Drama Island. Once they found it, Zoey uses Cameron as bait to steal the flower but failed as Lightning has taken it first. When Larry eats Cameron, Zoey enters the mutant plant's mouth to save her friend and aggressively attacks it from the inside. After the challenge ends, Larry spits out Zoey and Cameron.
In Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown, Zoey is noticeably afraid when she sees Larry appear at the Chrisiseum with the other mutants. When it is about to attack her, Brick, Jo and Mike, Cameron saves them.
In No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, Zoey and Mike encounter Larry again, this time at the Fun Zone on Boney Island. Seeing that Larry also laid an egg, she immediately wonders if Larry is actually a "Laurie". She then devises a plan to steal the egg. Zoey swings past on a vine and takes Larry's flower as a distraction, while Mike takes the egg. Zoey then throws the flower to a flying moose, which causes Larry to attack it instead. By the time Zoey and Mike brought back Larry's egg to their team's basket, the egg hatches, splattering them with slime. Since they did not put the egg into the bowl in time, their team did not gain a point.
As Chris is introducing Lightning, he pushes Mike and Zoey away on the yacht in Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!.
In Ice Ice Baby, Lightning purposely kicks some rocks while he is climbing Mt. Looming Tragedy to knock down Zoey, Mike, and Cameron, causing them to fall.
In The Enchanted Franken-Forest, Zoey and Cameron team up during the challenge in order to take out Lightning and move to the final two together. While Chris announces the challenges, Zoey insults Lightning's stupidity by saying that he has "the brain of a jellyfish". When Lightning tries to attack Cameron, Zoey defends him by threatening the jock. When Zoey and Cameron are under attack by Larry, Lightning chooses to run to the finish line instead of saving them. In the end, Lightning won the challenge and chose Zoey to take the Hurl of Shame that night, because he sees her more of a threat than Cameron, also wanting to complete his personal vendetta against Cameron in the finals.
Zoey, like most contestants, chooses to support Cameron over Lightning in Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown. When Zoey and the others are under attack by the mutated creatures, Lightning refuses to help them. When Lightning is declared the winner in his ending, Zoey is noticeably disappointed that Lightning won the season.
From the moment they met, Mike and Zoey are immediately attracted to each other. However, any possibility of them becoming a couple early on was difficult, as Mike doesn't want Zoey to know about him having Multiple Personality Disorder. The situation becomes even more complicated when Vito, Mike's tough guy personality, begins flirting with Anne Maria. Since Zoey believes his personalities are all characters he plays, she becomes jealous, frustrated, and thinks he's "hiding" from her. After discovering his secret in Grand Chef Auto, Zoey tells him that she likes Mike just the way he is, even with his disorder, and the two started a relationship.
At the beginning of Total Drama All-Stars, Mike and Zoey are still a couple and are place on the same team again. However, Zoey begins to worry about Mike as he is unable to change into his alternate personalities as of recently, as well as later suspecting Mike being the culprit behind the damages on the campers' personal belongings. Her suspicion was proven to be true when Duncan reveals that Mike used to be in juvie with him in the past and he has an evil personality named Mal, with Izzy confirming Mal's appearance when she is fighting him in Suckers Punched. Knowing how close Mike is to Zoey, Mal reluctantly saves Zoey's life in You Regatta Be Kidding Me in order to gain her trust and relinquish her suspicion. Believing that Mike is still himself, Zoey let her guard down for a few episodes until she heard Alejandro calling Mike "Mal" in The Obsta-Kill Kourse and her suspicion has been raised again. Eventually, she finds a DVD that Alejandro left in the Spa Hotel before he is eliminated, and finally finds out the truth about Mal. In order to find a way to rescue Mike, Zoey decides to bring Mike/Mal to the finals with her. After Mal is defeated and Mike regains control, the two of them are happily reunited and finally share their first kiss.
In Evil Dread, Zoey is worried about Sam's condition as he appears to be tired throughout the challenge which results in him getting injured several times.
In Saving Private Leechball, Zoey and the rest of her team (except Courtney) smuggle food from the hotel to give to Sam, who comes back from Boney Island, injured and starving. That night, Zoey consoles Sam after he finds out that someone had broken his GameGuy.
With most of his targets in the Toxic Rats gone, Scott finds an ally in Zoey, using her naïvety to gain her trust. After he is placed on the Mutant Maggots, Zoey often backs him up whenever the others are bad mouthing him. However, Zoey eventually finds out that Scott was never a nice person after he votes out Mike in Grand Chef Auto, making their conflict mutual. In Eat, Puke and Be Wary, Zoey is finally able to get her revenge on Scott by injuring him during the challenge with one of her traps. He is eliminated that night, and their feud is put to an end. They have limited interaction in their next season, but not many hints of the same level of conflict they had with each other by the end of last season. However, Zoey's stronger bond with Mike as opposed to Scott influences her decision in voting off Scott in The Bold and the Booty-ful.
In Evil Dread, Sierra reveals, in the confessional, that she has taken a liking towards Zoey, viewing her as being "even sweeter in person". Later Zoey and Courtney watch Sierra in disgust as she eats the breakfast Chef threw into the cabin, off the floor.
In Moon Madness, Sierra thinks she is invisible because of her not having her phone, and asks Zoey if she can see her. When Zoey is not replying (as she is in shock of "Mike" breaking Cameron's glasses), Sierra screams in Zoey's ear, temporarily deafening her.
In No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, Zoey tries to comfort Sierra, who is still crying over Cameron's recent departure to the opposing team. However, when she corrects Sierra for calling Cameron "Cody", Sierra begins to insult her childishly and runs out of the cabin in sobs.
In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Zoey and Mike help Staci stay afloat as she is struggling in the water after their yacht is blown up by Chris. Staci is also seen looking at Zoey and Mike when they arrive on the beach,
