Beth, labeled The Wannabe, was a camper in Total Drama Island as a member of the Screaming Gophers. She later returned as a castmate in Total Drama Action on the Killer Grips, and was one of the finalists that season; despite this, she did not return for Total Drama World Tour and was instead an aftermath commentator. She also makes a cameo appearance in the first episode of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island.


Beth was born and raised on a farm with only animals and her parents to keep her company. Thanks to this background and lack of interaction with other people, she never developed proper social skills. She does anything for attention, and while she excels at getting others to stop and stare, it is more often than not for embarrassing reasons. Beth herself remains oblivious to this problem. She also tends to be a very dependent person, most likely caused by her desire for everyone else to like her. Her naive ways have made her an ideal target for antagonists like Heather, Courtney and Justin. Over time, Beth learns to stand up for herself and stay strong all the way to the end. The removal of her braces in Total Drama Action builds her confidence enormously, to the point where she is the only person to stand up to Chef in Alien Resur-eggtion. Beth is considered among the others as trustworthy and a sweet girl overall.

Total Drama Island


Beth comes off rather strong while making her first impression.

In Not So Happy Campers - Part 1, Beth arrives first to the island, extremely excited to be there. She then states that Chris looks a lot shorter in real life rather than on television. She introduces herself to Heather when she arrives and tells her that they are going to be her new friends for the next eight weeks. She is placed on the Screaming Gophers and later asks Chef if they will be getting all the major food groups during their stay at camp, much to his annoyance.

In Not So Happy Campers - Part 2, Beth had refused to jump off the cliff because she was too scared and was forced to wear the chicken hat. However, this does not hurt her team, as she is the only one on her team to not jump and they still win the challenge. She is seen cheering with Heather and Lindsay when the Gophers get their first win.

In The Big Sleep, Heather tricked Beth into an alliance by saying that they (along with Lindsay) would make it into the final three if they ally with her. Being completely oblivious that they were only being used to get Heather further in the game, Beth and Lindsay both agree to the alliance. Beth fell asleep around the same time as Lindsay.

In Dodgebrawl, Heather informs Beth and Lindsay about the alliance rules at breakfast that morning, threatening them that if they don't follow her rules, they would be voted off. For the challenge, Beth plays in the second round of dodge-ball and does not get out. Beth also plays in the third and fourth rounds, but is eliminated by Duncan's "Crush the New Guy" strategy. She lastly participates in the final round at one point, though it's not shown when. She most likely votes out Noah when her team loses the challenge and he is voted off that night.

In Not Quite Famous, Heather has Beth, Lindsay, and herself be the judges for the talent show auditions so that she could easily get in. Beth auditions for the show by twirling fire batons. Heather asks if it's safe, and Beth responds by telling her that she's been practicing. She then throws them into the air and runs before they hit the ground, admitting that she missed the catching class. She does not go into the show. When Heather reads Gwen's diary, Beth does not seem surprised, implying she may have known about it beforehand. When her team loses, Beth votes for Justin with her alliance, and he is eliminated.

In The Sucky Outdoors, Beth did not play an important role. She helped put together the tent and was also terrified of the "bear" when it came, clinging to Lindsay.

In Phobia Factor, she reveals her fear of being covered in bugs to the other campers. The challenge then required Beth to face her fear and dive into an inflatable pool filled with worms. When Beth saw her challenge, she simply shrugged it off and easily dived straight in. Chris commented that Beth set the bar way high.


Beth "curses" her team when she takes a tiki she found on Boney Island back to the camp.

In Up the Creek, Beth (who was in the bathroom) did not hear Chris' instructions that she would be cursed if she took anything from Boney Island. When she asked him what she missed, he simply told her, "canoes.” Beth shares a canoe with Trent and Lindsay on the way to Boney Island, though she does most of the work, as Lindsay was flirting with Trent. At the island, Beth took a haunted tiki idol carving out of a bush, cursing her team. Beth rides with Lindsay and Cody on the way back to camp.

In Paintball Deer Hunter, tensions between Heather and Beth come to a climax when Beth reveals in the confessional stall that she is feeling frustrated by Heather's constant and unreasonable demands, such as demanding her shower be warmed and having her put lotion on her "scaly back." Later, the teams are divided into deer and hunters; Beth and Lindsay are among the hunters, and Heather is among the deer. When they meet up Heather for an alliance meeting, she orders Beth to bring her some potato chips from the mess hall, instead of focusing on the actual challenge. Beth does so, while trying to avoid being spotted by Chef Hatchet. While she did this, she reflected on why she took such a crazy risk, with the potential of being caught by the "psycho Chef,” and realizes she was putting her life on the line for someone she never even liked. Beth defiantly begins eating the chips, and when she gets to Heather, the chips are almost gone. These chips, in addition, are not even the kind Heather wanted. Heather demands that she brings her more, but Beth refuses. She then shoots Heather with her paintball gun, officially ending their alliance. Afterwords, she befriends Leshawna. Heather (and presumably Lindsay) vote off Beth for breaking their alliance, but Beth is safe anyway. At the elimination ceremony that night, Cody is eliminated thanks to Beth's curse. Because of his wheelchair, Beth volunteers to take him to the Boat of Losers. At the dock, she kisses Cody goodbye on the cheek and tells him to take care (this pushes him down into the water).


Beth's tiki idol is discovered by Chris.

In If You Can't Take The Heat..., Heather has Beth work with Leshawna cutting pineapple for the cooking challenge. Beth again gets bossed around by Heather, but does not stick up for herself like she did in the previous episode. Instead, Leshawna comes to her defense and, together with Lindsay, locks Heather in the fridge. Later, when her team loses the challenge, Lindsay rescues a furious Heather from the fridge. She begins to yell at Beth and the other Gophers about their loss. Heather then notices the tiki idol on the table where Beth had put it. After asking about it, Beth accidentally reveals that she took the idol which brought a curse, and was the reason behind the team's losing streak. That night at the Bonfire Ceremony, Beth is eliminated, becoming the final victim of her own curse. She sadly walks away, getting laughed at by a mocking Heather.

She says she would return the tiki doll to Boney Island, but in Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon, it is revealed that Beth broke the tiki doll in pieces and flushed it down the septic tank.

Beth reappears in Haute Camp-ture, at Playa Des Losers, where she is enjoying a facial with the Sharks. When asked about Heather, Beth says that telling her off was the best moment of her life. Later, when the eliminated contestants gather around the pool, Beth says that she wants Owen to win.

In the finale, Beth has no lines, but supports Owen with the majority of the contestants. She is seen congratulating him when he won. In Gwen's ending, Beth is seen comforting Lindsay about Owen's loss.

In the reunion special, Beth became best friends with Lindsay, as they spend much of their time at Playa Des Losers together. She teams up with Lindsay and Ezekiel (so long as he is not sexist towards them) to find the suitcase with one million dollars inside it. They are the first team to find the case, but since Beth and Lindsay are talking, and not listening to Ezekiel, they walk right by it. Later on, they find the case floating down the river. It is quickly stolen from them by Duncan and Courtney, leaving Beth, Lindsay, and Ezekiel to be chased away by an alligator. They are next seen leaving the washroom, where the case bounces up to them. Justin then lands next to Lindsay (covering Beth and Ezekiel with his parachute in the process). He is easily able to convince her to give him the case. When Beth is next shown, she is outside of the parachute and chasing the case to the dock with Lindsay. Both girls are knocked into the water, and qualify for Total Drama Action.

Total Drama Action


Beth reveals that she has her braces removed.

Two days after Total Drama Island ends, Beth returns as one of the thirteen contestants participitating the new season. It's revealed that during the break, she finally had her braces off, which earns her the compliments from her fellow cast mates. The removal of her braces gives her increased confidence this season, and she is more willing to participitate the challenges. She is happy to discover she is placed on the same team as her best friend Lindsay, and away from Heather. Beth and Lindsay are much closer this season, considering themselves BFFs and are often seen doing things together. Meanwhile Beth's infatuation with Justin increases many fold, and believes they are destined to be soul mates. Justin is fully aware of her attraction, and reveals he is planning to take advantage of her to further his own cause, similarly to what Heather did last season. For the most Beth oblivious to the truth, remaining focused on his good looks and does everything Justin tells her to do. Amongst the deeds she carries out for him includes; helping Justin to blackmail Gwen into throwing the challenge for her team in The Chefshank Redemption. However it isn't long before Justin's "powers" begin to lose effect on both Beth and Lindsay, and the two begin to ignore him. They feel no sympathy for him when Justin is eliminated in Princess Pride, and do not even bid him goodbye as he walks to the Lame-o-sine.


Beth holds up a picture of her alleged boyfriend, Brady.

Early on in the season, Beth reveals to her fellow contestants that she has a boyfriend named Brady, whom she met during the two-day break between the seasons. As part of a running gag, throughout the season Beth will mention Brady to the others, and try to justify his existence by stating facts about him like his job, his pet dogs and his habits. However her efforts are mostly in vain and are mostly met with laughs, as no one believes that Brady is real. This carries on for a while, with Beth's continued attempts to defend her boyfriend's existence, but all this changes she believes Harold has a crush on her, and she becomes torn between the two boys she loves, and contemplates breaking up with Brady, to give Harold a chance.


Beth's costume as Lumber Woman in Super Hero-ld.

Beth finds a new enemy in the form of Courtney, who returns to the competition in Ocean's Eight - Or Nine after filing a lawsuit against the show. Her arrogant and bossy nature causes Beth to immediately dislike her, which increases over time after seeing the way she treats Lindsay. After the merge, Beth allies herself with Lindsay, and the other contestants, who all share mutual hatred towards Courtney and vouch to get rid of her. They first try in Super Hero-ld with the help of Leshawna, but as Courtney won immunity, they instead target her boyfriend Duncan, in hopes that his elimination will demoralize her. However the plan fails as the boys are in an alliance and manage to eliminate Leshawna. Beth and Lindsay try again in Rock n' Rule, this time enlisting the aid of Harold, who happily joins in due to his conflict with Duncan, but fail once again as Lindsay is eliminated when she accidentally votes for herself.

Beth and Racoon

Beth immediately bonds with her raccoon and wins both challenges.

After Lindsay was eliminated, Beth takes a more active role in the challenges. She immediately sees Courtney's plans to bribe her with food as her way of recruiting her into an alliance. Already learn from her experience of being manipulated into "fake friendships" twice by Heather and Justin, Beth harshly refuse her. However, after much persuasion from Courtney, Beth eventually agrees. Despite this, their alliance is short-lived and they turn on each other by the next episode, after Beth disobeys Courtney's orders and wins invincibility for herself. Beth again performs well in Top Dog, being able to bond with her raccoon faster than the others. She ends up being the first person to return to camp, and is awarded with invincibility for the second time. After Courtney returns, the two girls confront Owen after discovering that he is behind a large number of the recent sabotages. Despite being aware of his betrayal, Beth still chooses to vote for Courtney, seeing her as a bigger threat. After many episodes, Beth finally succeeds in eliminating Courtney, ironically with Duncan's help (who was tired of Courtney controlling him in their relationship). However, Owen is unexpectedly fired by Chris for having his cover blown, making Duncan and Beth the final two of the season.


Beth is reunited with Brady in The Aftermath: IV.

In the finale, Beth initially tries to persuade Duncan to help each other to reach the finish line but Duncan rejects her and easily takes the lead early on due to his better physical attributes. Despite this, Beth is able to catch up with Duncan since she know many things about her fellow contestants unlike Duncan and therefore, allowed to skip all the challenges until the set of Top Dog. Along the way, Beth gives advices to both Chris and Chef to forgive each other after the latter attempt to quit the show. In the final challenge, Beth got her question about Courtney wrong since she did not bother to know anything about her due to their rivalry. Since Duncan fails to answer his question too, the two of them had to take the earthquake stimulator challenge from Master of Disasters again. Near the end of the challenge, despite Duncan's pleads, Beth save him and together the two run neck-at-neck to the finish line, resulting in a tie. To determined who win the million dollars, the two finalist had to answer questions asked by the eliminated contestants and even perform odd challenges such as break dancing from Izzy, eating healthy food from Owen and draw an imaginary animal by Harold. After all questions are asked, the winner is determined via votes. In Beth's ending, she is declared the winner and everyone congratulate her. In both endings, she is reunited with Brady who was proven to be true.


Beth and Lindsay visiting Paris.

After Total Drama Action has ended, Beth and Lindsay visited France but ended up in jail after Lindsay smudge the Mona Lisa. In order to bail them out, Beth either used her prize money (if she is the winner) or her parents sell their car. She is reunited with the other contestants at the Gemmie Awards and after their bus crash while heading to New York, Beth joins Geoff and several others to find help but by the time they do so, they found out that they would not be participitating for the next season.

Total Drama World Tour

Although she wasn't seen in Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 1, she was mentioned by Heather when she talked about who should be with her in her alliance, and stated that since she wasn't there anymore, she would have to settle with someone else. She also makes a cameo appearance in Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan in the Japanese trailer for Total Drama Action.


Beth insists that Blaineley and Geoff let Bridgette sing the way she wants to.

In Aftermath: Bridgette Over Troubled Water, Beth appears in the Peanut Gallery, along with the others who did not qualify for Total Drama World Tour. She reminds Geoff about Bridgette cheating on him with Alejandro. She dances with Katie and Sadie when The Drama Brothers perform, and then later ends up fighting with them over the Drama Brothers. She then helps coax Bridgette out of the green room, who was nervous about the interview. She relays to Geoff and Blaineley that Bridgette will only come out if she can sing and on her terms. Beth is last seen in the green room, consoling the pole about Bridgette and Geoff getting back together, then beginning to flirt with it, asking if it's going to do anything later.

In Aftermath: Revenge of the Telethon, Beth, along with the rest of the Peanut Gallery, answered calls in an attempt to raise money for the show and get the plane some fuel, in order to get out of Jamaica. Beth has no lines in this episode. Later, when Blaineley releases the animals for DJ's segment, Beth and Eva get attacked by the alligator. At the end of the episode, when Izzy blows up the studio, Beth is seen hanging from the rafters.

Beth loses to Blaineley in Aftermath Aftermayhem.

Beth appears again in Aftermath Aftermayhem. She manages to catch a peanut jar with a pop-up Chris, along with Lindsay, Leshawna, Noah, and Tyler, which symbolizes an opportunity to be in Total Drama World Tour. During the board game, she rolls a six and manages to create a nice haiku about Heather, even though it took her a while to think of one. Next, she rolled another six and had to catch an intern dressed up as Jack the Ripper, which she also successfully completes. She makes it to the end of the board. When given the final question about the name of Duncan's band, Blaineley gets impatient and answers for her, meaning that Blaineley had to join the competition instead of Beth.

In Hawaiian Style, Beth inquires as to what happened to Blaineley, calling her "the mean blonde person." She also draws Bruno's attention twice in the episode. She is afraid the bear will eat her since he starts to lick his lips and began to pour salt on her. However, she is relieved that the bear chews on Blaineley like a chew toy instead. She joins team Cody along with almost everyone else.

Beth appears at the end of Planes, Trains, and Hot Air Mobiles, along with everyone else, but she has no lines.

Beth makes her final appearance of the season in Hawaiian Punch, still a part of Team Cody, though once Cody is eliminated, she reluctantly joins Team Heather.
