Cody Emmett Jameson Anderson, labeled The Geek, was a camper on Total Drama Island as a member of the Screaming Gophers. He did not compete on Total Drama Action, but was a member of the Total Drama Action Aftermath peanut gallery. He also returned as a contestant for Total Drama World Tour as a member of Team Amazon. He was seen with the other original contestants on a yacht in the first episode of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island.
Cody is a tech-savvy geek who sees himself as a ladies' man instead of a nerd. He joined the show primarily to be with the "cool" kids: his own kind, or so he thinks. His self-named "manly charms" and "smooth moves" are famously not so smooth, failing him around the other contestants such as Trent. Cody's usual tactic of getting women involves him using pick-up lines that sound irresistible to him, but irritating to everyone else. Most of the girls he flirts with usually end up annoyed or amused. Despite the act, Cody seems to be aware that it's actually a façade and that he isn't the Casanova he desires to be. It is highly suggested through Cody's huge crush on Gwen that once he becomes truly interested in someone, he will be loyal and will do whatever it takes to make her happy - even give her up to another guy. Cody is a very sweet boy, but with it comes tendencies that are perverted and somewhat stalker-like. He shifts to the receiving end of a major fixation in Total Drama World Tour. Total Drama fan-turned contestant Sierra joins to his hip, despite his continuous protests. Eventually, however, Cody comes to value her devotion and sees her as his best friend. This is further supported in the first episode of season four, where Cody is being hugged by Sierra and, although she would have disturbed him before, he is now smiling.Not So Happy Campers - Part 1, he is greeted by Chris as the "Codester" and the "Codemeister." He happily notes that the girls have already arrived and when he opens his mouth to flirt with Leshawna, she silences him with a finger to his lips, and tells him to "save it short stuff" in an amused tone. Cody gets placed on the Screaming Gophers, and later walks into the girls' cabins to tell Gwen that she is smart and that he "feels that." When Gwen asks Cody if he was supposed to be on the boys' side, he grins eerily at her. His answer causes him to be thrown out of the cabin by Gwen.
In Not So Happy Campers - Part 2, Cody is scared by the fight going on between Heather and Leshawna. As his team gets their turn at the challenge, Cody is extremely frightened when he jumps off the cliff, flailing his arms and legs and screaming as he falls. Despite this, he succeeds in landing in the safe zone. He said that bringing the supplies over to the campground was easy, due to the advantage his team received, and was pleasantly surprised that they got there so quickly. Cody quietly assists his team in winning the challenge for the rest of the episode.
In The Big Sleep, Owen farts in Cody's face during the twenty-four hour mark when Cody nearly falls asleep. He is able to stay awake for as long as Courtney does before Chef sprinkling sleep dust forces him to fall asleep. The next morning, Cody wakes up to Noah kissing his ear while still asleep. Cody doesn't notice this at first, but once Noah wakes up and begins screaming, Cody screams as well, and they both run away from each other in a panic after the awkward situation.
In Dodgebrawl, Cody is shown helping his team in the dodgeball competition. In the first round, he is the first one to throw a dodgeball, but he misses Tyler. Eventually, after a while, he is the only one left against Katie and DJ. However, he gets DJ out by giving a boomerang effect to a dodgeball, and by rubbing the ball on his shirt, he causes it to build up static electricity, making it impossible for Katie to avoid, since it is like a homing missile. During the final round, he selflessly jumps in front of Gwen and gets hit in the groin by a dodgeball.In Not Quite Famous, Cody is shown throughout the episode to be following (and bothering) Gwen. When Trent arrives at the bleachers at the auditorium, he gets comfortable, putting his hands behind his head and crossing his legs. Cody tries to imitate this to get Gwen to notice him, but he falls back instead. When Gwen is writing in her diary, Cody comes up and begins to bother her about the "journal." He sniffs her hair and tells her that she smells pretty, to Gwen's confusion. Heather notices the two and jokes they were the "first hook-up of the season." Cody even tries peeking in the cabin door to watch Gwen change into her bathing suit, but ends up getting it slammed in his face, due to Gwen's fast changing. He and Owen do a cannonball near Gwen, soaking her and making her leave the dock angered while she and Trent are sharing a quiet moment alone. During the talent show, at Heather's performance of reading Gwen's diary, Cody believes it is him that Gwen must be secretly in love with, until the diary mentions that her secret crush plays the guitar, which Cody does not know how to play.
In Phobia Factor, when DJ got scared of the gummy worm, which he thought was a snake, Cody tried to calm him down. Cody's fear was to diffuse a time bomb under pressure. Due to this, he had to diffuse a garbage time bomb in ten minutes with the help of blueprints, as noted by Chris. He failed his challenge, and when he was searching for someone to help him, he caused Bridgette to fail her challenge, because she was terrified of his appearance, as he was covered in garbage. Later, he points out with a calculator that the Killer Bass cannot win, due to the score being seven to three, with the Gophers in the lead.In Up the Creek, Cody once again tried to make a move on Gwen in order to get her to like him. He tried to make Gwen his partner, but she only agreed because Beth and Lindsay had already taken Trent as their partner. Cody asked Gwen on a date three times, but she declined them all. The third attempt led to Cody being hit in the groin by a canoe paddle. While they were still in the canoe, Cody realized that Gwen liked Trent instead of him, and Cody promised that he would get the two in a canoe together on the way back from the island. Cody then revealed he made a bet with Owen that if he got one of Gwen's bras, then Owen would do his dishes for the rest of the season, but him revealing this caused him to be whacked in the groin again. Once they got to Boney Island, Cody noticed the woolly beavers and also saved his team from the Stymphalian Canadian Geese with bread from his pants, that he said he brought with him intending to have a "romantic picnic" with Gwen. Later that episode, Lindsay and Trent got stuck in quicksand. To save them, Cody grabbed onto a vine and attempted to swing to Trent, but crashed into a tree. However, the vine swung back over the quicksand, so that Trent could take hold of it and get Lindsay and himself to safety. Lindsay called Cody her hero and hugged him. Later in the episode, Cody got Gwen and Trent in the same canoe. This selfless action made Gwen and Cody close friends, and Cody got one of Gwen's bras in reward, thus winning Owen's bet. After finding the bra below his bedsheets, he lets Owen examine it and then tells him that a "gentleman never kisses and tells" after Owen asks how Cody got it.
In Paintball Deer Hunter, Cody was the only one who was excited on his team that he was a deer. When he was in the confessional, he was shown after he was mauled by the bear, even before the attack, implying that the only confessional was in the camp site. He hid behind one of the bushes until Beth walked by, and Cody then talked to her for a while to see how it was going. Once Heather and Beth began to argue, Cody took the chips and ran. As he called Barbecue the "King of Chip Flavors," he left crumbs on his way, and didn't notice there was a hole in the bag. Once he found berries, a bear found him by following the crumbs and mauled him. This left him with a full body cast, a black eye, several scratches, and a wheelchair. Cody got eliminated because of the fact that his injury would make him useless in challenges. At the Dock of Shame, Beth kisses Cody on the cheek, and shows him her tiki idol. Cody tried to tell her that it was bad luck, but he couldn't due to the bandages around his face and mouth, and his wheelchair fell and sunk into the lake (because strangely, the Boat of Losers wasn't even present at the time).
However, Cody was shown to be fine in Haute Camp-ture and fully healed from the bear's attack. He spent most of his time at Playa Des Losers trying to get a tan, but he fails and gets a sunburn instead. He wanted Gwen to win, saying that as long as Gwen was happy, he was happy. Trent and Cody had gained a mutual respect for each other over this. He was also shown to be healed from the sunburn three episodes later. In The Very Last Episode, Really!, Gwen considers Cody one of the five sane people on the island (considering that everyone else was insane, evil, weird, overly lively or something else) and Cody sides with Gwen, even after Owen announces the party. In Gwen's ending, after Gwen wins, he tries to high-five Eva, but she knocks him over.In Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island, he teams up with Owen, DJ, and Tyler to get the one million dollar case. He acts as the brains of the small group, coming up with many ways to keep them all in line, and not betray one another. He and his team are the first to find the case, but they quickly lose it. Cody's skills in the special are notable, as he was the only one who could trick Justin into a moment of weakness to allow his group to steal the case from him. He was also the unfortunate victim of Courtney, who put him in a headlock while demanding the case from the others. Since he was the one who had to suffer the consequences, he tries to propose a compromise, but nobody agrees to it. Cody and his team wind up on the diving board and fall off when it breaks. Though DJ and Owen fell on a nearby plane wing and were able to make it to the dock and qualify for Total Drama Action, Cody and Tyler fell into the tub below, and therefore, were unable to make it to the dock in time, making them ineligible to compete for the money again in the next season. Total Drama Aftermath. He appears in The Aftermath: I: along with the other "losers," watching Bridgette and Geoff interview Izzy and Trent. Cody is notably one of the few characters who remains siding with Gwen regarding the break-up situation between her and Trent. It is revealed that Cody is still in possession of one of Gwen's bras that was given to him in Up the Creek. For the remainder of the season, Cody continue to watch the show from the Aftermath studio including the tie breaker between Duncan and Beth to determine the winner of the season.
In Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special, sometime after Total Drama Action, Cody, Trent, Harold, and Justin created a boy band called The Drama Brothers, which later broke up when Harold went solo. Cody went on the tour bus to try to reclaim his popularity after some encouraging words from Sierra. After Chris rescues the cast, Cody makes it to the new season: Total Drama World Tour. Little did he know, Sierra has had her eye on him for quite some time.
Cody returns for Total Drama World Tour with hopes that he can try to win over Gwen, especially now that she and Trent had broken up, but he is also put on the receiving end of an attraction by his biggest fan, Sierra. Before they even leave the airport, Sierra is shown to know what his full name and his birthday were, even though this information had never been revealed on the show. While he generally tries to avoid Sierra for much of the season, the two are often paired up for the challenges throughout the season. This is the case during the first challenge, but the two would end up being placed on different teams. However, it wouldn't be long until Sierra transfers over to Team Amazon to be on the same team as Cody.
For much of the season, Cody is overshadowed by most of his team members, because even though the team manages to avoid elimination for quite some time, he is often the weakest link because of his scrawny physique. A notable exception to this, however, is Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan, where most of his team is too busy arguing to participate in the challenge. As a result, he is the one to participate in the first challenge and, while he does the worst in the challenge of the three teams, he and Sierra are the only ones to do the commercial for the challenge and the commercial gives the team invincibility. Other challenges, however, required him to be helped immensely by Sierra to make it through. An example of this is during Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better, where he ends up sinking in the water and remains frozen for most of the challenge to the point where he is unable to move. He still does not give Sierra any mutual respect, however, due to Sierra’s constant stalking, such as giving him foot rubs in his sleep despite his protests. In fact, in all but two of the elimination ceremonies he attends, he votes out Sierra whether she has immunity or not. It would not be until much later where he begins to appreciate this habit of hers.
Cody continues to be creeped out by Sierra for most of the season, but Sierra is completely unaware that Cody dislikes her. In The Am-AH-Zon Race, even though Sierra knows all about Cody’s allergies and even sucks the poison out of his finger when he gets bitten and the team no longer has an EpiPen, Chris reveals that night that Cody voted out Sierra. With Sierra heartbroken by these events, Cody tries to cheer her up in the next episode, but Sierra doesn't listen to him and continues sobbing. However, the song reveals that all she wants to do is go outside, but even after he stages a romantic dinner with Sierra, he still gets no progress. When he confesses that the day was bad because Sierra wasn't enthusiastically bugging him, however, he is finally forgiven, even though Sierra later admits she was faking all of it.
As Sierra falls back into her old habits and Cody continues to show his usual response towards it whenever the two are paired up together or alone in the next few episodes, he still shows his attraction to Gwen in a somewhat similar manner to Sierra, although it isn't quite to the extent of Sierra. While he does things such as telling Tyler to take a picture of him and Gwen together while the latter was asleep, he also manages to win the tiebreaker challenge in Greece's Pieces despite the protests of Courtney and Sierra to throw the challenge so then they could vote off Gwen that night. Even though he doesn't do anything to stop Courtney's hatred towards Gwen, he is the only one that seems to support her in The EX-Files, such as not saying anything in Boyfriend Kisser and sacrificing his candy in order to help them get through the minefield and promising her that he would vote off Courtney (rather than Sierra) in the scenario that they lose. Unfortunately for both of them, Cody's hatred towards Duncan for kissing Gwen would ultimately result in Duncan throwing a dingo at him (out of revenge for Cody harassing him throughout the episode) during the bungee jumping challenge in Picnic at Hanging Dork. This causes him to become disoriented and not vote for Courtney during the elimination ceremony, an event that would cause Gwen's elimination that night. His sadness towards her elimination carried on in following episode when, instead of building an actual boat for the challenge, he built a replica of Gwen's head instead. While it ended up floating, the immediate response of most of his team was anger, with Heather in particular chasing him around with a sledgehammer used for the challenge seconds after it was revealed.
When the teams merge in Niagara Brawls, Cody is still mostly paired up with Sierra during the challenges and things only get worse for him when Sierra gives the two of them an "official" marriage in Niagara Brawls. Promising to help deal with Sierra, Heather tries to form an alliance with him in Chinese Fake-Out and she tries to tell him that the two are not actually married. While Cody does try to tell Sierra that he only likes Sierra as a friend, he is unable to word it correctly and Sierra misinterprets his statement as that he also loves her back. Cody is invited to first class with Sierra that night and drinks the Love-me Tea she received while the challenge was in progress, but too much of the tea causes him to hallucinate and he is unable to do most of the challenge in African Lying Safari. Despite this, he proceeds to the final four and is invited to first-class with Alejandro.
Cody is grateful to Alejandro for keeping him away from Sierra in Rapa-Phooey, but Alejandro only is doing this so he can gain Cody's loyalty in order to get rid of Heather. He makes use of Cody's addiction to candy by giving him the reward he had from the previous episode to him in order to further gain his trust. Unlike other episodes, Cody works together with Alejandro rather than Sierra, with Cody using his candy basket carry his and Alejandro's eggs. When it is believed that Sierra is eliminated later that day, Cody thinks that Sierra is finally gone. However, much to his horror, Chris announces that no one is being eliminated, and Cody had to once again shares the night with Sierra at economy class. Despite their night together in first class, Sierra is upset with him in Awwwwww, Drumheller, much to Cody's confusion. He is, however, touched to find out that Sierra remembers that it is his birthday when no one, including himself, remembers it. This gives made Cody to look at Sierra differently for the time and apologize for the way he treated her. For this, Cody choose to vote for Sierra as the winner of the first challenge. When he asks Sierra why she is upset with him, he shows him a picture of him sleeping beside Heather. Cody defends himself by saying that Sierra would never leave him alone, which makes him conclude that the picture she received was a fake created by Alejandro in order to manipulate her. To get back at him, the two agree to vote for Alejandro and enlist Heather to help them. That night, just before Chris announces the final vote, Sierra interupts him to wish Cody a happy birthday and brings out his cake with firework-like sparklers as candles, but this causes the plane to explode due to the sparks hitting oil nearby the plane, eliminating her and securing Cody's spot in the final three.
In order to get to Hawaii in Planes, Trains, and Hot Air Mobiles, Cody constructs a hot air balloon and uses Sierra's wheelchair as part of its component after she willingly gives it up to him. Finally trust her enough and calling her his best friend, Cody decides to bring Sierra with him to Hawaii after Chris abandons her. The two overcome many obstacles along the way but ultimately they crash after the balloon is caught in a telephone wire. With his only means of transportation destroy, Cody believes he had lost all hopes in winning until Sierra comes back with a box of fireworks and uses it to launch the both of them all the way to Tijuana Beach. After getting rid of Alejandro, Cody believes he had won second place until Alejandro crashes into him, causing a tie.
In order to determine the second finalist, Cody and Alejandro have to battle each other in Hawaiian Punch. Despite almost the entire cast supporting him, after being distracted by Heather, Cody is knocked into the water and is swallow by a shark until Sierra saves him. Determined to make sure Alejandro does not win, Cody volunteers to help Heather with Harold joining him. As the two of them take on Alejandro's helpers, Cody manage to get rid of Lindsay by telling her about a sales nearby, but he is unable to do anything about Courtney. When it is discovered that Alejandro hates being called "Al", Cody reminds him of how Owen kept calling him "Al" throughout the season in order to distract him. However, Cody accidentally traps Heather in a cage, giving Alejandro the advantage. Cody gives Heather encouragement to not give up, saying that she can't give up now, or the "bad guy wins," encouraging Heather to thinking she's the good guy, and later catch back up to him. Like everyone else, he cheers for Heather when she wins and escapes the island when the volcano erupts.Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Cody appears on the yacht with the other veterans. Sierra, who is still growing her hair back and wearing a red cap, is holding him tightly against her chest.
Cody does not return to compete in this season, and although he never appears in person or has any lines, Sierra makes numerous references to him during her time in the competition. When Sierra jumps off the helicopter in Heroes vs. Villains, she shouts "For Cody!" When walking to the first challenge, Sierra tells Sam that she came back for Cody but that it was too dangerous for him to return. Sierra compares Gwen and Duncan's relationship to hers with Cody. When participating in the challenge, Sierra picks a key that resembles Cody, only to find that it doesn't work, coincidentally because it is too small.
In Evil Dread, Sierra pretends that she is digging for Cody and winds up digging 20 feet into the ground.
In Saving Private Leechball, Sierra slowly starts to believe that Cameron is Cody and starts to hallucinate Cameron as Cody. This later causes Cameron to volunteer to go off to Boney Island so he won't become "Cody number two."
In Food Fright, after someone breaks Sierra's phone, she reveals that the phone had her top five-hundred Cody pictures on it. After listening to a suggestion by Sam, Sierra imagines her teammates with Cody's head and happily says "Okay, Codys." During the challenge, she calls the injured Cameron combinations between his own name and Cody's, such as "Camdy" and "Cam-ody."
In No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, Sierra asks Duncan if they may work together to find eggs and if she can call him Cody. One of the eggs she finds hatches into a two headed mutant rat with she names Cody 1 and 2, and she brings it back to the camp with her after her team wins.
In Suckers Punched, Chris shows Courtney a video on Sierra's "Gwuncan" blog, which is designed with multiple photos of Cody's face and a picture of Sierra hugging him. At the elimination ceremony, the Villains vote Sierra off so she may be reunited with "her actual Cody" and Cameron encourages Sierra to go to him.
While on the dock, Gwen asks Sierra to tell Cody she said hi. Sierra's final words before being eliminated are "I'm coming Cody!" In an exclusive clip, Sierra ends up in Area 51, and meets four of the alien Cody clones from The EX-Files.
