The Pimâpotew Kinosewak (translates to Floating Salmon in English, and sometimes referred to as Team Kinosewak) is one of two opposing teams in Total Drama: Pahkitew Island. The team originally consists of Amy, Jasmine, Max, Rodney, Samey, Scarlett, and Topher. However, in This Is The Pits!, Max and Sky switched teams due to Chris wanting to split up budding relationships. The team logo is a green fish with a light green background.

Total Drama: Pahkitew Island


Team Kinosewak celebrate their first victory.

In So, Uh This Is My Team?, Amy, Jasmine, Max, Rodney, Samey, Scarlett, and Topher are put on the Pimâpotew Kinosewak team for having the only working parachutes. Jasmine appoints herself as team leader and successfully orders her fellow teammates to build a tree house. After their shelter proves stronger and sturdier compare the opposing team, they are declared the winner of the challenge. They also win the next challenge with little difficulty after Leonard's failed attempt to use magic slows him down, allowing Jasmine to easily overtake him

Following this, Team Kinosewak lose all following challenges, due to internal issues within the team. In Twinning Isn't Everything, the team initially have the advantage; however, due to the twins' sibling rivalry, they accidentally eliminated themselves and Jasmine, failing the challenge. Amy attempts to shift the blame on Samey to get her eliminated, but Samey manages to trick Amy into eating a Manchineel fruit that Samey has learned about from the previous episode. Due to her sister being unable to talk, Samey claims she is Amy and vice versa, resulting in Amy being eliminated in Samey's place.

In I Love You, I Love You Knots, the team loses again, with Rodney failing in every challenge he was chosen, including the tie-breaker. Because of this, he is voted off. In A Blast from the Past, a vengeful Amy returns to the island during the final moments of the challenge, exposing Samey's identity. As the sisters fight each other, Sugar easily wins for Team Maskwak. To prevent any more confusion, Chris decides to eliminate both twins that night.

Advancing people

Team Kinosewak advance to the third area.

In Mo Monkey Mo Problems, animosity begins to emerge between Max and Scarlett, with the latter attempting to get Max eliminated. The team's inability to work together continue and only Jasmine is able to focus on the challenge while the others are too busy with their own business (Scarlett "helping" Max to become more evil and Topher stealing Chris's cell phone). After acquiring their coin, the team is caught in Max's trap, to which the self-proclaim evil genius admits it was his plan. Team Kinosewak eventually loss and Max is voted off but because Ella was caught singing, she is eliminated instead.

In This Is The Pits!, the team is separated into two groups, Jasmine with Topher and Scarlett with Max as usual. Using Chris's cell phone, Jasmine and Topher escapes the caves by digging their way out while Max and Scarlett use an elevator. That night, Max switches team with Sky as Chris wanted to prevent the development of any potential relationship. Despite the addition of a more physically skilled contestant than Max, the team still did not fare well in Three Zones and A Baby. Topher continues to wait for a reply from the producers while Sky is worried of Dave. Near the end of the challenge, Topher is excited that he is going to replace Chris as the host and causes and avalanche. Because of this, Topher is eliminated that night and he realizes that he is tricked by Chris.

In Hurl and Go Seek, Chris announces the merge, officially breaking up Team Kinosewak. Jasmine, Scarlett and Sky progress to the merge.
