Cody appears to be attracted to Gwen and tries to flirt with her several times throughout the series, resulting in her rejecting him quite a few times as she does not like him in a romantic sense, considering him to be an annoying younger brother instead. Initially, Cody was very understanding over the matter, even going out of his way to help Gwen get together with Trent, believing that when Gwen was happy, he was too. In return for Cody's help regarding Trent, she also helped Cody by lending him one of her bras so that he could win a bet against Owen.
However, this changes in Total Drama World Tour, after the events of Total Drama Action when Gwen breaks up with Trent. Cody once again decides to hit on her, even becoming more clingy and obsessive, but to no avail, as Gwen still doesn't return his feelings. Cody's obsession with her leads newcomer, Sierra, to hate Gwen due to her own obsession with Cody. Gwen on the other hand, has fallen for Duncan and they start a relationship in The EX-Files, causing Cody to lose another chance with her. Despite this, Cody still has feelings for her and flirts with her in Picnic at Hanging Dork (most likely trying to steal her from Duncan). He also feels sorry for all that she's going through in the game and tries to protect her from elimination, but fails. Although Gwen dislikes Cody's obsession over her, she still thinks of him as a friend and as one of the few sane people in the game.
Trent and Gwen share a tender moment near the campfire, but as they lean in closer to each other, Cody darts between them to ruin the romantic interaction, due to his interest in Gwen. Gwen is particularly shocked and unhappy at this interruption, while Trent simply seems confused.
Cody follows Gwen into the girls' cabin and compliments Gwen by saying she's smart and that he feels that. Gwen questions him, asking if he is supposed to be on the boys' side. His answer likely prompts her to then throw him out the door.
Cody sacrifices himself for Gwen by taking a hit by a dodgeball that was intended for her.
Gwen spends her time writing in her diary and Cody comes to talk with her. Gwen ignores him while he tries to make small talk and sniffs her hair, which freaks her out. She gets up and walks back to the cabin after insulting him. Cody spends much of the episode following Gwen around and trying to act like a gentleman in order to impress her. However, she does not fall for him, and was sarcastic about how she and Cody hit it off when Heather comments on their "hook-up." Cody still remains undaunted by her rejections. At the talent show, when Heather read Gwen's diary out loud regarding her feelings for Trent, Cody thinks the diary is referring to him. Although, he realizes that this is wrong when it is mentioned that Gwen's crush plays the guitar, which Cody doesn't. Cody then realizes it was Trent and will then try to set Gwen and Trent up together a few episodes later.
Cody tries to make his move on Gwen by getting her as a canoe partner (she agrees only because Trent gets partnered up with Lindsay and Beth first). Gwen then, in the confessional, says Cody is like an annoying little brother. Cody attempts several times to ask Gwen out on a date while they paddle across the lake, only to get rejected each time. He only finally understands Gwen's rejection, and her preference for Trent, when she hits him in the groin with her paddle.
Cody continuously hits on her in hopes of getting a date (even expecting her to eventually concede, having packed picnic lunch supplies in his pants), but she still denies him. He realized that she has a crush on Trent. So he sets her up with him. Before taking off, Cody uses the quicksand incident as an excuse to switch places with Trent so that he can ride with Gwen while Cody rides with Lindsay and Beth on the way back. Both Trent and Gwen are grateful for this. After this episode, Gwen and Cody are friends. Later, when Owen and Cody are in the Screaming Gophers cabin, he finds Gwen's bra under his pillow, obviously meaning that she was willing to fulfill his ridiculous request as thanks for hooking her up with Trent.
When Gwen thinks being a fake deer is lame, Cody tells her that being a fake deer could be fun, to which she, along with Heather and Trent, glare at him. When Cody is voted off, Gwen is heard sadly saying goodbye to him.
Cody says he wants Gwen to win; Lindsay asks him why he still wants her to win after she rejected him for Trent. He reaffirms his crush on Gwen, but has no regrets about setting her up with Trent on live TV and doesn't feel jealous whatsoever. He says that as long as Gwen is happy, he will be happy.
Gwen considers Cody one of the sane people on the island, the others being Leshawna, Bridgette, Owen, and DJ, despite Cody's crush on her and many attempts of flirting with her. Cody supports Gwen when she and Owen compete to win the $100,000 and is one of the few to remain loyal to her, even when Owen announces his plans to throw a massive party (the others being Leshawna, Trent, and Eva).
By this point in Total Drama Action, Gwen and Trent have broken up due to strains brought about by the competition. Despite popular support for Trent, who many believed was unfairly eliminated at Gwen's hands, Cody still supported Gwen, even calling her hot and displaying her bra, which he had held onto ever since he had acquired it from her in Up the Creek.
Although he does not speak in this episode, Cody, along with all of the other commentators, looks concerned when Geoff attempts to force Gwen into a piranha-infested dunk tank for his own amusement.
In this episode, it is proven that Cody still has feelings for Gwen, as he encourages her to sing in the musical number, worried that she will be eliminated. After he crosses the finish line, he asks, "Where's Gwen?" When Duncan quits the show, Cody says "Hi" to Gwen and tells her that they are on the same team, offering her his hand to help her up. He then says in the confessional that he likes girls on the rebound because they cry about their old relationship and let boys like Cody buy them a pop. Cody feels that this will be no different for Gwen, to his pleasure. Later on, both Cody and Gwen are put on Team Amazon.
Cody flirts with Gwen early in the episode, asking her if she wants to get a slushie with him after the competition. Ignoring his request, Gwen thanks Cody again for hooking her up with Trent in Up the Creek. Cody says that Trent isn't currently in the game and that he himself is available, but this doesn't seem to change her mind. Although, she did laugh at him when Heather humiliated him. Gwen also seemed slightly worried about Cody's being on their camel's rear end.
Cody is slightly irritated with Gwen, Courtney, and Heather because they constantly argue, ultimately doing both challenges with Sierra. After the commercial that Cody and Sierra created wins, Gwen says that Cody is awesome. She is going to join a group hug with him, but Sierra tells her to back off.
After arriving in Yukon, Cody smiles and attempts to hug Gwen for warmth. However, Gwen angrily rejects him, prompting Sierra to hug Cody instead. Later, when the ice Gwen is on starts to break, Cody attempts to save her. He winds up bumping into Owen and falling into the freezing water.
Cody desperately wants to avoid having to wear a lederhosen because he doesn't want Gwen to see him in one, but someone from his team has to. So he tells Sierra that she'd look hot in a lederhosen, making her beg Chris to wear it. By hearing his enthusiasm, he doesn't give it to her and Cody is forced to wear it anyway.Zing-Zings, Cody asks Gwen to get a flashlight from his pocket and use its batteries for an emergency walkie-talkie. She asks him not to enjoy her reaching near and "touching" his butt, but he does so anyway, uncontrollably and secretly ecstatic. Gwen can't find the flashlight but finds several items which Cody used to try and impress her, and a pair X-Ray glasses. Heather tells Gwen to see what color Cody's underwear is, but when Gwen looks, he isn't wearing any. This shocks and disgusts her and makes Cody blush, but Cody later recalls the event and enjoys the fact that Gwen "touched his butt.” Gwen keeps looking and accidentally stabs and injects herself with Cody's EpiPen. This causes Gwen to go crazy for the rest of the episode. When the medicine loses its effect and Team Amazon loses the challenge, Sierra tells Gwen that she'll only share her's and Courtney's votes for Heather if Gwen agrees to stop being nice to Cody. Gwen agrees if only to have Heather eliminated. Gwen holds no personal grudge with Cody.
After getting fed up with Sierra's crying, an irritated Gwen snaps at Cody, telling him to do something about it and claims that they don't need him on the team to win. From this point, she and the rest of Team Amazon leave him and Sierra behind in order to complete the challenge properly.
In a flashback from Jamaica Me Sweat, Cody is revealed to be responsible for Gwen's sunburned hand. He sees her sleeping in a beach chair, under an umbrella. He gets Tyler to take their picture together, telling him to make sure he gets her bikini in the shot. When she stirs, he and Tyler run off. When he runs away, he knocks the umbrella askew which leaves her hand uncovered by the sun's rays.punches Duncan out of jealousy, knocking him out. Courtney and Sierra tell Cody to lose the tie-breaker challenge so they can vote off Gwen, to which Heather agrees. Both of them realize that everyone on the team besides the two of them would vote her off, thus sealing her elimination. All of this drives Cody to put all his effort into the challenge so that they can't vote Gwen off. In the Confessional, he says he'd do anything for Gwen, hoping that she'd eventually have to kiss him the same way she kissed Duncan. He actually manages to win, thus saving Gwen from elimination.
Gwen thanks Cody when he sacrifices his candy to save Team Amazon from the mine field.

Despite his jealousy towards her relationship with Duncan, Cody is the sole Amazon without a vendetta against her.confessional, a triumphant Gwen celebrates getting another vote against Courtney, her mood change implying that she had been faking the sadness in order to gain Cody's sympathy. But in a dazed state after being mauled by a dingo, Cody accidentally votes for Sierra instead of Courtney.

It should be noted that Cody actually causes Gwen's elimination as for most of the episode, he pranks and messes with Duncan who eventually retaliates back by throwing the dingo at Cody.
Cody is seen to be extremely depressed due to Gwen's elimination. Throughout the episode, he sighs every time he hears her name. In the first part of the challenge when his team must construct a boat, he constructs a giant replica version of her head to remind himself of her, which leads to the singing of We Built Gwen's Face. He also draws her face in the snow with a stick while the other contestants are singing.
Chris explains that there was a second-chance challenge in the previous aftermath which would allow one of the eliminated contestants to return to the game. Before Chris announced that the winner was Blaineley, Cody became excited at the thought of Gwen re-entering the competition. Though Blaineley later entered the scene, much to Cody's disappointment.
