Total Drama World Tour (formerly titled Total Drama, the Musical) is the third season of Total Drama.

Overview

Fifteen returning cast members, plus three new contestants, compete for the chance to win $1,000,000 in challenges taking place all around the world. This season, players are divided into three teams and must live on the Total Drama Jumbo Jet. They must also perform spontaneous musical numbers every episode or risk being eliminated via the Drop of Shame. The prize money (once again $1,000,000) goes to the last-standing contestant in the season.

Format

  • Traveling: The challenges would vary from episode to episode, as the contestants are forced to fly around the world in the Total Drama Jumbo Jet.
  • Haves vs. Have Nots: The winning team of each challenge gets to fly in the first-class section, while the losing team(s) have to stay in economy class.
  • Singing: The contestants are required to sing one song per episode, including musical reprises. Any contestant that refuses to or does not sing is automatically eliminated.
  • Replacements: Due to one contestant quitting, a contestant re-entered the game after being automatically eliminated by the host.
  • Three Teams (Determined by Challenge): The placing of the contestants in a race determined which of the three teams they would join.
  • Team Switch: During the second challenge, two contestants were able to switch teams.
  • Fake Eliminations: During various episodes, the losing team faced an elimination ceremony and voted someone out, but the host would later reveal the challenge was only for reward.
  • Additional Contestants: After said contestant quit for not singing, some contestants found him and captured him as a part of a challenge, placing the returnee in the losing team. After a special second-chance challenge, the winner debuted in episode 19.
  • Merge Composition: The merge consisted of 8 contestants.
  • Final Challenge: A Final Challenge took place with the final two contestants, with two previously eliminated contestants as helpers for each, in which the first to throw a wooden dummy into the volcano won the prize money.

Episodes

Total Drama World Tour consists of twenty-six episodes.

Trivia

  • Eva, Katie, Sadie, Justin, Beth, Trent, and Geoff did not qualify for this season.
  • Noah, Tyler, Cody, Courtney, Heather, and Ezekiel all made it farther than they did in Total Drama Island.
  • Bridgette, Gwen, DJ, and Heather all made it farther than they did in Total Drama Action.
  • All of the males who competed on Total Drama Island, but not Total Drama Action, were eliminated in the same order as before.
  • This is the only season where Gwen, Heather, and Leshawna are not on the same team.
  • This is the only Total Drama season to have an adult competing in the competition.
  • This is the only season to feature three teams instead of two.
  • This is the only season where the third place eliminated contestant is in the season finale.
  • This is the only season in which a female contestant wins in the United States.
    • This is also the first season where the winner is not the same in both Canada and the United States.
  • This is the only season to feature three confessionals. The first and more commonly-used one is in the Jet's lavatory (reminiscent of the original confessional in Total Drama Island). The second one is in the Jet's Cockpit, with Chef or Chris always in the background due to being the co-pilots. After the destruction of the plane, the remaining contestants use an outhouse confession while they are in Hawaii.
  • This is the only season to feature another way of elimination, aside from being voted off, quitting, or being automatically eliminated by a challenge. Chris states that if the contestants do not sing, they will be eliminated.
    • However, no one is actually eliminated by this rule, and many people get away with not singing throughout the season.
  • This is the only season where none of the contestants are shown in their pajamas.
  • This is the first season not to include any female nudity.
  • This is the first season to take place outside of Canada, although they have returned to Canada four times in "Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better," "Newf Kids on the Rock," "Niagara Brawls," and "Awwwwww, Drumheller."
    • This makes Canada the most-visited country throughout the season, tying with the United States.
  • This is the first season in which only one contestant returns after being previously eliminated.
  • This is the first season to have tied votes at an elimination ceremony, in both "Picnic at Hanging Dork" and "Chinese Fake-Out."
  • This is the first season to feature "fake eliminations," in which Chris has all members of the losing team vote like they regularly would, then reveal the result, but not actually count that person as eliminated.
  • This is the first season to feature an odd amount of contestants competing from the start, as Total Drama Island had twenty-two contestants, and Total Drama Action started with fourteen contestants.
  • This is the first season in which someone had to leave because of medical problems.
  • Every character voiced by Peter Oldring was on one of each team this season.
  • This is the first season in which a previously eliminated contestant is brought back into the game without being an actual contestant. In this case, Ezekiel was brought back to aid in challenges in "I See London..." and "African Lying Safari."
  • This is the first season where Duncan isn't the highest-ranking member on his team.
    • However, he is the highest-ranking former Killer Bass for the third consecutive time.
  • This season features the latest merge of a season, with the merge happening in the nineteenth episode.
  • This is one of only two seasons to have its main promotional image be a moment from an actual episode, the other being Total Drama Island.
  • This is the only season directed by Jennifer Pertsch and Tom McGillis.
  • This is the only season where Izzy competes and does not rejoin the game after being eliminated.
  • This is the last season to air in the United States at a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio. Starting with the fourth season, the show now uses a 16:9 high-definition aspect ratio (since most television series switched over to the format around late 2011).
  • This is also the last season to have twenty-six episodes. Starting from the fourth season, the amount was cut in half to thirteen. In the overall franchise, it would not be until The Ridonculous Race where the episode count would be back to 26.
