The remaining teams travel to Hawaii! Someone loses their good luck charm and finds something else which proceeds to cast a curse on their team while someone shows an infatuation with another and someone else tries to express her interest in someone who just won't give her the chance. Another is finally fed up with her teammate, leading to a fall out while a long argument and someone's aggressiveness leads to a break up for a certain couple who end up coming in last, but are given a second chance in the race.
The episode begins with the teams getting ready to take a donkey cart to Hawaii. The Sisters and Reality TV Pros try to pass the time with a game of charades, where Kitty is clearly showing a camera, but Owen continuously gets the answer wrong, usually giving a food-related answer. Eventually, Emma snaps and gives the answer to Owen, asking Noah how he deals with Owen. Noah hears nothing, due to his infatuation with Emma. Owen notices that Noah has been acting strangely as of late. Meanwhile, Father and Son board their donkey cart with the Stepbrothers. Dwayne discusses how lucky and grateful he is that he can spend quality father-son time with his son, while Junior comments on the immaturity of the Stepbrothers, wondering how old they are due to their incessant bickering. Mom and Daughter are on the same cart, and Taylor tells Junior that he is lucky he gets to compete with his father. Kelly describes Taylor as a "daddy's girl", and Taylor says it is because she can relate with her father more than her mother; they both enjoy being successful, and both of them hate avocados. While some teams try to deal with family time and relationships, the Goths are devastated at having to leave Transylvania and aren't willing to go to Hawaii, due to the climate change and the positivity. Stephanie's competitiveness starts to get on Ryan's nerves and this strains their relationship further.
After arriving in Hawaii by plane, the teams are greeted by a local. Don explains that the Hawaiians value their traditions, as a local tries to put a flower necklace on Jay. Jay avoids her as the Adversity Twins reveal that Jay is allergic to the species of flower that the local is giving them. When Jay has a flower necklace on him, he begins to sneeze. In an interview, the the Twins talk about how the Hawaiians really value their traditions, as Jay continues to suffer from allergies. The teams must compete in a Botch or Watch, where whoever didn't do the gymnastics challenge in Romania has to dive for a wedding ring in one of the famous honeymoon bay areas of Hawaii, from where they must swim to the beach to meet their partner. As the first seven teams dive for the rings, Jacques ultimately manages to grab the first ring, giving the Ice Dancers an early lead. Josee finds a new good luck charm, a lava rock shaped like a trophy, although a Hawaiian man states that she cannot take anything off the island. Josee ignores him, and exclaims that Hawaii has entire volcanoes full of rocks; taking one won't make a difference and takes the rock. Meanwhile, some of the teams have managed to find the rings, while others don't have quite the results they expected. Stephanie and Kitty set their sights on the same ring but their fight is interrupted by a shark, which Stephanie fights with, giving Kitty enough time to get the ring and make her escape, angering Stephanie.
Upon seeing Carrie's reaction towards Devin, Kitty immediately discovers her crush and talks to her about it. Kitty reveals that she has a strong "love" radar, and it has been pinging a lot lately, which makes Emma walk away when Kitty begins to make "alarm" noises. The Ice Dancers are the first reach the location of their next challenge, which is an All-In. In this challenge, the teams must now walk across blistering hot coals, while one teammate wears a grass skirt and the other teammate wears a maile lei. If either of the outfits catch fire, the teams must start all over again. After completing this challenge, the teams must race on foot to the next Chill Zone. Meanwhile, the other teams are still searching for the wedding rings, with some of them getting electrocuted by electric eels or having ink squirted on their face by an octopus. Noah finds two rings, and begins to head for shore. However, before he does, he notices something is dragging him down. Initially thought to be a shark, it turns out to be Mickey, who desperately wants a wedding ring. Noah groans, saying that he wants to sell the second one for cash, but gives it to Mickey anyway. Owen however, upon seeing Noah's recent change in behavior, from not making a sarcastic remark to acting nicely towards Mickey, believes that his partner is dying. In an interview, Noah states that he has not grown soft, but rather gave the ring to Mickey due to how pathetic he looked, but eventually went on a tangent about Emma.
As the teams get ready to compete in the All-In, Carrie uses the opportunity to consult Kitty, who has also helped Owen figure out why Noah hasn't been acting like himself lately. Kitty tells Carrie that life is short, and if she likes Devin, she should tell him. Kitty also mentions that Devin is attractive. Meanwhile, the Daters are still stuck on the first challenge, where Stephanie's anger has finally gotten to Ryan and he threatens to leave. While Mom and Daughter are delayed due to Taylor's exceptionally slow swimming, the other teams have reached the location of the All-In. Kelly claims that Taylor is a tad faster with a flutter board. In the All-In, the Stepbrothers argue who does what. For Father and Son, Junior tells his father that he cannot wear the grass skirt. Dwayne reasons with his son, saying that if he wore the skirt, Junior would have to lift him. Junior tells Dwayne that a kid at his school with the last name "Finkle" got shoved into the girls' locker room for a year, just because his last name rhymes with "tinkle", and proceeds to lift his father up. For the Surfers, Geoff diverts Brody's attention by talking about events relating to the cold that had taken place in the past. This teamwork leads to the Surfers to be the first team to arrive at the Chill Zone after completing the All In. Later, the Ice Dancers and Best Friends race to the Chill Zone, but due to Jacques tripping over a lava rock, the Best Friends get second place while the Ice Dancers are devastated due to getting third place.
As more teams begin to arrive at the Chill Zone, the Goths fall behind due to Crimson refusing to wear the skirt until she colors it in with a black marker, with Ennui telling the audience that Crimson must wear black, no matter what it is, even if it is grass. Mother and Daughter have a falling out, due to Kelly finally becoming fed up with her daughter's attitude. She reveals that Taylor does not have any talents or skills whatsoever, all of her trophies were bought by her father from a trophy store, and that her coaches were paid to lie and compliment her, and that every achievement of hers, down to her beauty pageant victories, are fake, bought with all the money their family has. Carrie tries to tell Devin about her crush on him, but refrains from telling him after he tells her that he loves how they're best friends. While Stephanie throws a temper tantrum upon learning that she and Ryan are the last team to arrive. Ryan uses the opportunity to break up with her, and Stephanie begins to shout at Ryan for breaking up with her on national television. Don interrupts their argument, and tells them that they are still in the game due to it being a non-elimination round.

Reality TV Pros
- The tourists who showed up at the Chill Zone in Mediterranean Homesick Blues appear when Don introduces the location.
- It's implied that the Ice Dancers' excellent performance in previous challenges was due to the good luck from Josee's rabbit's foot.
- The contestants who compete in the Botch or Watch are Geoff, Noah, Taylor, Mickey, Kitty, Stephanie, Carrie, Spud, Jacques, MacArthur.
- The Daters are seen fire walking without any indication they completed the Botch or Watch. Assuming Stephanie did not find a ring in the end, they would have been penalized even if they reach the Chill Zone before any other teams.
- One of the Hawaiian natives from Hawaiian Punch makes a cameo appearance, warning Josee of the consequences of taking a lava rock as a trinket. Like before, his warnings are ignored.
- This marks the first time Geoff, Noah, and Owen visit Hawaii since the finale of Total Drama World Tour.
- The Stepbrothers use a few insults from earlier episodes, which include None Down, Eighteen to Go - Part 2 and French is an Eiffel Language.
- Jay mentions Mickey's immunity to venomous creatures, which is first revealed in Brazilian Pain Forest.
- Stephanie says Ryan is dumping her on national TV, only for Don to clarify that it's international. A near-exact exchange occured in Aftermath: Bridgette Over Troubled Waters during I'm Sorry, where Geoff says Bridgette kissed Alejandro on national TV, only for Harold to correct that it is international.
- The name of the episode is a play on "Hawaiian Honeymoon".
- Several contestants' hair is dry despite being underwater multiple times throughout the episode:
- Stephanie's hair is dry when right after punching a shark and when she's searching for a ring under a seashell and a rock.
- When Carrie and Kitty are talking in the water, Carrie's hair is briefly dry.
- Mickey's hair is dry when he finds an eel.
- Noah's hair is dry when he finds two rings.
- Right before Mickey is electrocuted by the electric eel, the gap between his teeth is missing.
- In the recap, Noah's love expression towards Emma differs from the previous episode.
