Early on in Total Drama Island, Heather chooses Beth and Lindsay as her followers, in order to further herself in the game. Heather lulls the two girls into an alliance with the promise of taking them to the final three, where in reality she is just using them to do her every bidding and ensure her own safety, since Beth is "desperate enough". After some time Beth starts to realize the truth, and stops being loyal to Heather. Eventually, Beth grows frustrated of Heather's bossy attitude, and quits the alliance in Paintball Deer Hunter. From thereon out, Beth and Heather's relationship becomes very strained and the two neglect to interact with each other in later seasons due to Beth not participating after Total Drama Action.

Heather seems to boss Beth around more in this episode than in any other episode, as she repeatedly tells Beth to get her chips, becoming more dissatisfied with her choice. Later in the episode, Beth snaps at Heather's snobbery and quit her alliance, even stating that, deep down, she hates Heather. Heather did offer her one more chance to rejoin the alliance, if she takes back what she said, but Beth turns it down. Beth then teams up with Leshawna against Heather by shooting paintballs at her in response to Heather's snobbery. Heather swore to get Beth voted off that night, and even did a cut throat motion to tell Beth she is finished. Unfortunately for Heather, Beth is safe that night. As Beth takes an injured Cody to the Dock of Shame, she expresses pride in herself for standing up to Heather.

At the end of the challenge, Beth reveals that she had brought back the cursed tiki idol from Boney Island when Heather questions her about its presence as a table decoration.

In the confessional alongside Lindsay, Beth says that even though Heather's mean, they shouldn't be mean back, quoting Buddha and saying "You can lead a sheep to water, but you can't make it nice", despite this not being a real quote by Buddha.
Near the beginning of the episode, Heather is sitting alone, and gestures to Beth and Lindsay to come join her. Beth and Lindsay, however, both ignore her and sit down with Justin instead.

During the challenge, Beth ropes Heather, and answers her question when the latter, visibly shocked, asks her where she learned her roping skills.
At the beginning of the episode, Lindsay and Beth are talking together and referring to one another as "besties," while Heather is clearly within earshot. Heather then walks by, telling them that "she actually wants to win the competition" and that the sooner she eliminates them, whom she refers to as "pathetic, spineless, followers,” the better. Beth looks on angrily as she does this, but the remark has no further effect on Beth during the episode.
As Beth and Heather are ready to fight one another on top of the pedestals during the prehistoric challenge, a pterodactyl attacks Heather by grabbing on to her red wig, causing her to fall.

Beth and Heather compete against each other again, this time for a badminton challenge. Heather makes fun of Beth when she gets frightened by the bird being used as a shuttlecock.

During Geoff's "Truth or Electrocution" segment during the Total Drama Action Aftermath, he straps Heather to the electric chair and asks if she thinks Beth is a threat.

Beth is so lonely being by herself in the girls' trailer, she mentions that she'd even want Heather as company.
