Welcome to Character Appreciation, a blog series that will run for the whole year alongside Project 10. Each week we'll take a look at one Total Drama character, what we like and dislike about them, how they've grown, and what we hope to see from them in the future. I'm Raised By Wolves, and this week, we'll be looking at the Take No Prisoners Jock-ette, Jo!


Jo makes her debut onto Total Drama: Revenge of the Island in Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er! and immediately establishes her place as one of the more powerful contenders by reaching the shore second, narrowly edged out by Dawn. She takes on a strong role in her team and manipulates her fellow contestants into alliances. She wins several challenges for her team, but reaches her downfall in Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon at the hands of Cameron, being hoisted by her own petard.


I personally think Jo is one of the most complex and interesting characters that this franchise has to offer, especially in a cast as underwhelming as Revenge of the Island's. Her psychological gameplay and intense strategy add to how much fun she is to watch in challenges and the competitive aspect of Total Drama. Jo contributes well to the dynamic of the cast, having interactions with everyone and even having her own personal arcs in the form of her insecurities and poor social game. This all leads to her being an excellent standalone character, rather than depending on others for development. She even adds to the comedy aspect of the show, giving everyone legendary nicknames that never fail to amuse me.

Best Moment: Beating up Sasquatchanakwa.
Best Season: Total Drama: Revenge of the Island
Best Episode: Runaway Model
