Taylor is used to ALWAYS getting her way, which is a direct result of being spoiled rotten by her mom, Kelly.
Mom, Kelly is a rich trophy wife, desperately clinging to her youth with cool clothes, cool "jams", and being a “cool mom” to Taylor and her friends.
Classic competitors Noah and Owen are back for another chance at the million dollar prize.
Since their Total Drama days, Owen and Noah have been keeping busy appearing on various reality shows like Meltdown Kitchen and Scare Tractor.
If this team had a motto it would be one word: YOLO! Geoff (from Total Drama Island) is back to compete again but, unfortunately, without his best gal, Bridgette.
Since she's away on a surfing tour, Geoff's brought his best bro, Brody.
Kitty and Emma are sisters who have always been worlds apart, personality wise.
Kitty - pretty and smart but has never really needed to use her brains to get what she wants.
Emma is the opposite of Kitty in almost every way; she's a no-nonsense, highly motivated law student.
Dwayne is a happy go lucky father from the burbs with a great family and a son who’s growing up too fast. He signed them up for the Race as a great way to spend some time with his son, show him the world and maybe share a few laughs.
The Race is one big party for Rock and Spud, two loveable, best friends who still haven't moved out of their parents' basement apartments (they're just biding their time unVVTTtil their garage band, “Devil Frog” catapults them into super-stardom).
Forced together by the marriage of their parents one year ago, lazy-butt geeks Chet and Lorenzo instantly had a hate-on for one another and didn't try to hide it.
Identical twins Mickey and Jay don't deal with adversity in life – their life IS adversity.
Allergies, phobias, accidents, disorders and ailments are just some (of the many) obstacles that plague the brothers on a regular basis.
Gerry and Pete have the longest on-going rivalry on the planet. In the 70's they were tennis masters and each other’s fiercest competitors.
However, their careers have long since wound down so their agents thought it would be BRILLIANT to pair them up on The Ridonculous Race!
Best friends since early childhood, Devin and Carrie make a great team.
Carrie has a secret that Devin doesn’t know about; she’s been in love with him forever. He’s totally unaware, of course.
Before the Race, Stephanie and Ryan had met two months earlier at the gym and have been inseparable ever since.
They are beyond certain that they want to spend the rest of their lives together.
Pahkitew Island's wizard Leonard is back!
He brings his wacky, fantasy-laden brain and “live-action role playing” reality to The Ridonculous Race but this time around, he has an equally imaginative friend: Tammy!
These two Police Cadet trainees are willing do whatever it takes to win The Ridonculous Race.
These girls are a real threat - they're super ambitious and know how to work as a team.
Jen and Tom are best friends and world-renowned fashion bloggers who can't wait to see the world together.
They blog every day about what's hot and what's not and are sure that their fabulous taste and trending skills will guarantee their victory.
Canadian figure skating dynamos Jacques and Josee's dream was to win gold at the Olympics. When they finally got their chance, Jacques dropped Josee on the ice! Goodbye gold, hello national embarrassment. They’re using the Race to prove that they are still winners.
Astrophysics research is expensive and reality shows offer monetary prizes. As far as Ellody and Mary are concerned, problem solved.
They are miles beyond the other contestants in I.Q. and their plan of attack is simple: outwit the competition.
The Goths are dark, brooding and more than a little creepy. It's uncertain as to why they're participating in the Race or if they're even enjoying the experience, since they both have the emotional range of a stone gargoyle. Even writing about them is a little unnerving, so let's move on...
Laurie and Miles are earth-loving vegan do-gooders with an “Earth first” attitude. Having travelled extensively, they’ve learned a deep respect for different cultures as well as their local flora and fauna..
Don's as smooth as freshly spread butter on a warm loaf of bread and always the consummate host.
He's used to getting by on his good looks and stylish clothes but to be fair, he’s awfully good looking and those really are some stylish clothes!
