The Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom is a toxic, glowing marshmallow handed out by Chris in Campfire Ceremonies to the eliminated campers in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island. At the Campfire Ceremony, Chris will typically hand out marshmallows to everyone present minus the eliminated contestant. The contestant who does not receive a regular marshmallow will receive a toxic one, and must then take the Hurl of Shame.
Chef Hatchet is first seen holding the marshmallow towards the end of the opening sequence. Mike and Zoey retreat from the marshmallow while the other campers look on worriedly. In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Staci is the first contestant to receive the Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom. Upon receiving it, her hair falls out.
Dakota does not receive the Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom at her elimination in Truth or Laser Shark; when Chris tries to give it to her, she runs away.

In Runaway Model, Sam is hit in the face with the marshmallow and feels pain from it. In Eat, Puke and Be Wary, Scott panics when the Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom lands on his lap and burns through his cast.
