Total Drama All-Stars takes place on Camp Wawanakwa, the setting of Total Drama Island and Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, with fourteen players from the last four seasons returning to compete. This season, contestants are divided into two teams based on their status as a hero or villain, and must avoid the Flush of Shame in order to take home the $1,000,000 grand prize.
- Both Casts: For the first time, fourteen former contestants from both the original and the new cast returned for another shot at the prize money.
- Heroes vs. Villains: Seven of the most heroic battled against the seven most villainous contestants.
- Exile: After an Immunity Challenge, during the team phase, the winning team has to choose whom to banish to Boney Island, while during the individual phase, it is only used twice. This island, entirely separate from the existing camp, will force the banished player to fend for him/herself until the upcoming challenge. The player is also given the opportunity to find the invincibility statue hidden there.
- Team Switch: After one hero acted as a villainously and one villain acted heroically, they were asked to switch teams. Then, during a fake elimination ceremony, the eliminated contestant was asked to switch teams instead.
- Merge Composition: The merge consisted of 8 contestants.
- Double Elimination: During the final four, the contestant who failed or was the last to complete the challenge was automatically eliminated, while the winner of the challenge would choose whom to vote out, leaving the game with two finalists.
- Free-for-All Final Challenge: A Final Challenge took place originally with the final two contestants — with two helpers each — in which the contestant to travel between a four-tier moat and pull the sword at the top first wins. Afterwards, the host allowed the helpers to compete alongside with the finalists to win the prize.
