Your Favorite Crazy-Competing Contestants Are Back!
"Total Drama All-Stars" Premieres Tuesday, September 10 at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT)
Chris McLean and Chef are back at Camp Wawanakwa and they brought all your favorite campers with them! Tune in September 10 for the premiere of a brand new season of Total Drama: Total Drama All-Stars! Fourteen of the contestants you loved to love and loved to hate return, each hoping to be the one to take home the million dollar prize. In an epic battle of good vs. evil, the "Heroic Hamsters" and the "Villainous Vultures" compete in some of the most daunting, dangerous and of course disgusting challenges from seasons past!
In past seasons, the animated reality competition series Total Drama produced by Fresh TV and distributed by Cake Entertainment had egotistical series host Chris McLean torturing contestants on a toxic nuclear waste dump, a voyage around the world and a movie set. This season promises to be the toughest ever with spine-tingling twists, explosive challenges and bust-a-gut laughs. As usual, the Total Drama contestants will be split into two teams, and after each challenge the losing team will have to vote one teen off the island via the Flush of Shame! Last season, Total Drama:of the Island ranked #1 in its time period vs. all TV with key kids and boys 2-11, 6-11, & 9-14*.
Fighting for the million-dollar prize is an all-star cast of fourteen reality show contestants, ready to face the pain from Chris and Chef. With the casts' diverse quirkiness and eccentricities, the contestants are in it to win it at the hand of backstabbing, conniving schemes and even looove!?! And the All-Star contestants are: the prettiest girl in the camp Lindsey, ultimate jock Lightning, take-no-prisoners Jo, sweetheart Sam, queen bee Heather, obsessive uber-fan Sierra, Duncan the delinquent, Cameron the bubble boy, type-a Courtney, troublemaker Scott, loner Gwen, small town girl Zoey and multiple personality Mike and a super-secret-surprise contestant that you'll just have to tune-in for!
