This article focuses on the interactions between Duncan and Owen.


Despite their contrasting personalities, over the course of the series, Owen became great friends with Duncan. In Brunch of Disgustingness, both become acquainted when Owen moves into the same cabin as Duncan, along with all the other remaining guys. In Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action, they both make it into the final four. In Total Drama World Tour, they both end up on the same team, which gives them plenty of time to develop their friendship.

Total Drama Island

Paintball Deer Hunter

Owen mocks Duncan for being a deer, referring to him as "Bambi." In retaliation, Duncan calls Owen "tubby." Later Duncan calls him "Farticus" after his failed attempt to shoot him.

No Pain, No Game

After having two great days together with the other guys, they happily return to the camp together. When yelling out that "guys rule," Duncan and Owen have their arms around each other. However, right after Chris yells out that it is every camper for himself, Owen tries to give him a high five, but Duncan refuses and says "It's every camper for himself."

When Duncan tries to make an alliance with DJ, Geoff, and Owen, Owen was not sure if he wanted to join. However, in the next scene, Duncan is hanging Owen by his feet over a "cliff" threatening him to join, which he does. Owen then kisses Duncan and DJ on the cheek which freaked Duncan a little. At the end of the episode, the new alliance successfully votes out Bridgette.

Duncan, Owen, and Geoff have a friendly conversation about their most painful experiences that they had in the past while riding a bicycle.

When Owen said he does not jump off cliffs anymore, Duncan pushes him off. Throughout the episode,  they are seen working together in an attempt to steal the other team's materials, and succeed in doing so, being in the lead several times. They also seem to bond over farts during the challenge. Later, Duncan  gets upset and angry with Owen when he lost the challenge for them when he went after sticky buns instead of finishing the challenge. When Duncan is eliminated, Owen seems to miss him, even about to tear up when saying goodbye to him, only to end up accidentally burping in Duncan's face instead.

The Very Last Episode, Really!

Duncan chooses to side with Owen instead of Gwen, despite his good friendship (and future relationship) with her, even before Owen announced his big party he would hold if he won. Duncan is seen cheering for Owen throughout the challenge. In the end, Duncan and Owen, along with Geoff throw Chris into the water and then attempt to do the same thing with Chef.

Rock n' Rule

When Owen returns, Duncan happily greets him and Owen hugs him along with Harold. Later when Lindsay and Beth are trying to get Duncan voted out, they ask Owen about it. Owen seems worried and doesn't vote for Duncan, but instead votes for Courtney due to Courtney voting him off in Ocean's Eight - Or Nine even though she has immunity.

Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen

Due to his role as "the producers' mole," Owen manages to break up Duncan and Harold's recently formed friendship and later convinces Harold to punch Duncan.

Top Dog

At the beginning of the episode, Owen became worried when Duncan was not in the trailer the whole night. When Owen accidentally insults Scruffy, Duncan becomes angry. Owen continues to sabotage the game by spraying Duncan's mohawk and by leading him into a trap. During the elimination ceremony, although Owen states that he like Duncan, he votes to eliminate Duncan, but only because he eats more than Beth and Courtney.

The EX-Files

Owen, unlike most of the contestants, still sides with Duncan, saying he got a major score by getting with two hot girls on the same show in his terms of a "Babe Olympics."

Later in the episode, Duncan helps Alejandro carry Owen back to Chris.

Picnic at Hanging Dork

Early in the episode, Owen tells Duncan how Alejandro eliminated Bridgette and Leshawna, prompting Duncan to agree to help Alejandro throw Courtney off her game using the same strategy.

Duncan and Alejandro also laugh at Owen's misfortunes throughout the episode.

In order to seal an alliance with Owen, he lies about missing Noah too and follows everything that Owen tells him to do once Owen is appointed as captain during the Viking Ship Battle challenge.

  • Owen and Duncan have many similarities pertaining to their placements:
    • Both return to a season after being previously eliminated.
      • Coincidentally, they each returned in the season after the season (in their ending) they won in:

        • Duncan won Total Drama Action and returned in Total Drama World Tour.
