The Lame-o-sine is one of the many vehicles used throughout the series, and it serves as the Total Drama Action counterpart of the Boat of Losers. It is a limousine used to pick up castmates who are voted off or eliminated. The eliminated castmates must ride in the Lame-o-sine after they walk the Walk of Shame. The Lame-o-sine is an old, poorly-maintained limousine, riddled with rust and some engine problems. Despite this, it can still drive. The driver of the Lame-o-sine is unknown.
