Gwen, labeled The Loner, was a camper, and one of the finalists of Total Drama Island as a member of the Screaming Gophers. She returned as a cast member on Total Drama Action and was the captain of the Screaming Gaffers. She also returned for Total Drama World Tour and was a member of Team Amazon. She was seen with the original contestants on a yacht in the first episode of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island and had a cameo appearance in The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean. She was also a contestant on Total Drama All-Stars as a member of the Villainous Vultures.
Gwen is a Goth girl whose interests lie in art and astronomy. Throughout Total Drama Island, she is frequently seen sketching or writing in her diary. She wants to use the prize money to help her mother, travel, and study art history at a university. She is smart, independent, level-headed, and is able to complete almost all challenges without much difficulty. Gwen also suffers from claustrophobia, as seen in Phobia Factor, The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, and Zeek And Ye Shall Find. When she first arrives at Camp Wawanakwa, Gwen is irritable, annoyed by the other contestants, and sure that she will not stay in the competition for very long. Despite her seemingly cold, harsh attitude, she is not a bitter person, but is rather suspicious and very cautious about whom she lets into her life. Her kind heart, overtime, allows her to learn to trust, make friends (and enemies), fall in love, and even reach the finale. Gwen seems to actually want to get in to the popular crowd, as reveals to Geoff. He is more than happy to invite her to one of his famous parties, and she accepts his invitation and help to bring out her more fun-loving side (although she later calls him "party obsessed," in a rant slamming all but five of the other competitors).
She becomes more open to expressing her ability to love in future seasons. As obsession and betrayal damage her reputation, Gwen either insists or shows that she holds nothing against the others for their negative treatment of her. However, she fiercely stands her ground both times. By Total Drama All-Stars, she is determined to makeup for her biggest mistake and learns to put friends before boys, though the outcome is not what she imagines. Gwen is a strong believer in karma. She also is a huge fan of horror movies, the clichés of which will sometimes dictate how she performs in challenges.Not So Happy Campers - Part 1, she is already very disappointed, and even a little angry, at the location of the island. Gwen seems to be a bit displeased by many things, such as Geoff's happy attitude towards everything, Cody, who she throws out of her cabin after he tries to flirt with her, and Lindsay, who she called an idiot. Gwen attempts to ignore Trent as well, but can't help smiling at him, foreshadowing their relationship. Gwen immediately makes enemies with Heather when she addresses her as "weird goth girl." After Lindsay screamed that she saw a cockroach, DJ jumped on Gwen's bunk and Gwen was very impressed by how Duncan killed the cockroach with an axe. While in the main lodge, Gwen questions Chef about the bad qualities of the grub, only for Chef to smash her grub onto her plate with a meat tenderizer.
In Not So Happy Campers - Part 2, Gwen is completely terrified when she jumped off the cliff, screaming continuously during the drop. She has another negative interaction with Heather. This is when she became exasperated over Heather's refusal to participate in the challenge.
In The Big Sleep, Gwen was seen once during the twenty-kilometer run walking, telling Harold not to walk beside her. After becoming bloated from a buffet, she told Trent that the Awake-A-Thon segment of the challenge would probably be over in about an hour or less, after seeing a tired Owen walk past them. With Trent's help, the two of them stay awake by revealing each others secrets and thoughts about several things, and asking a few questions, hinting a relationship. They were sharing a very tender moment (and Gwen was about to fall asleep), but they were woken up and disturbed by the sleepwalking, naked Owen. By the eighty-five hour mark, Gwen is only one of the five people who are still awake. However, Gwen is extremely sad when Trent falls asleep, leaving only her and Duncan in the final two of the challenge. She managed to win the challenge, after Duncan took a snooze on "the can." Gwen fell asleep right when Chris announced the winner.
In Dodgebrawl, Gwen could barely stay awake for most of the episode, as she showed up late for breakfast, and immediately fell asleep when she sat down at the table. When Heather was teasing the Bass, Courtney tried to throw her oatmeal at Heather, but Heather moved away and the oatmeal hit Gwen instead. She participated in the challenge despite this in round one, where she got immediately thrown out by DJ, and did not go in again until round five, where she was in at the beginning until she got thrown out by DJ (again). She would have been out before that, but Cody selflessly jumped out in front of her when a dodge ball was heading towards her. She also got Courtney out for throwing oatmeal at her earlier in the episode during round five. Leshawna laughed along with Gwen, as Leshawna told Courtney she "messed with the wrong white girl!" This is the start of Gwen and Leshawna's friendship, which eventually leads up to Leshawna becoming Gwen's best friend. Gwen told Noah to shut it after he made a hypocritical comment after their team lost the challenge and Heather agreed with her.
In Not Quite Famous, Gwen started a more complicated conflict with Heather. Gwen got angry when she immediately declared herself lead judge of the auditions. She is calmed (and smitten) by Trent, however, when he stole an extra muffin for her. Sometime later in the episode, Gwen is alone with her diary, but she is bothered by Cody, who doesn't seem to want to leave her alone. To get away from everything, she and Trent go to the dock of shame, but the moment is interrupted by Owen and Cody after they jump in the water and splash Gwen. She angrily leaves the dock saying she hated the island. On her way back, she confronted Lindsay, who attempted to stop Gwen from going into the cabin so Heather may steal Gwen's diary. Later, at the Talent show, the song Trent sang was devoted to Gwen. When Heather read Gwen's diary out loud to the entire viewing audience, it is revealed she has a crush on Trent, making her run away in embarrassment. Because of this, she borrowed a red ant farm from Harold, and dumps in Heather's bed.
In The Sucky Outdoors, Gwen is so disappointed and embarrassed from the talent show that she doesn't even want to talk to Trent. Heather believes that Gwen is the one that needs to go next, but Trent disagrees. Possibly due to her embarrassment, Gwen doesn't have too many lines in the episode.In Phobia Factor, Gwen admitted her fear of being buried alive, possibly due to her claustrophobia. For her part of the challenge, she had to be buried alive for five minutes. To help her out, Trent tried to talk to her via a walkie-talkie, but Gwen was left alone after Trent faced his own fear of mimes. Unintentionally, she is left in there much longer than just five minutes, since Trent forgot all about her. Right after, he faced his fear of mimes and went to talk to Chris. When Courtney is the only one left, Gwen attempts to make Courtney lose by making the green jelly sound more disgusting than it really was which may have contributed to Courtney failing her challenge.
In Up the Creek, when Trent and Gwen are just about to become canoeing partners, Cody manages to grab Gwen when she is alone, and attempts to persuade her to be his partner. Cody and Gwen become canoe partners, but only because Trent was also snagged off-guard by Lindsay and Beth. Gwen also mentioned Cody was like a very annoying little brother. Cody asks Gwen out on a date, but after Gwen refuses several times, Gwen whacks Cody with her canoeing paddle in the groin. Cody finally realizes she likes Trent, but she whacks him in the groin again when Cody admits he made a bet with Owen to get one of her bras. Much later into the episode, Cody successfully gets Gwen and Trent into a canoe together, and Gwen awards him with one of her bras.
In If You Can't Take The Heat..., Gwen is partnered with Trent working on the ribs, but after his injury, she worked with Lindsay on baking the flambe.
In Who Can You Trust?, Gwen gets paired with Heather for the first part of the challenge. Obviously, due to their conflict, they don't trust each other. Heather rips off the bottom of Gwen's skirt when she is climbing up the mountain. Even though Gwen was embarrassed, the incident actually helped them win. She later got paired with Leshawna for the toboggan race down the cliff. She got scared about the route Leshawna took, as she wasn't blindfolded like Leshawna was, though they managed to win the challenge anyway.In Basic Straining, Gwen wins invincibility for her team when she completes all the challenges without getting eliminated. Gwen laughs at Courtney when she runs outside to puke due to eating too much food. Gwen and Leshawna are shown to have become very close friends at this point, and Bridgette has also seemed to have joined the friendship as well. By winning the challenge, Gwen gained respect from Chef, even though Gwen wasn't too interested in it.
In X-Treme Torture, Gwen and Bridgette argue over who wrote a certain haiku, when Gwen thought that Trent wrote the haiku. However, whenever Gwen asked Trent about the haiku, many of the campers stared awkwardly at her, due to her saying it in an awkward way. Bridgette believed it was Geoff. Both Gwen and Bridgette fail trying to get their crushes to admit the poem. Gwen was witness to Geoff telling Bridgette he didn't even know what a haiku was. The girls make amends after their failures and hug each other, promising to figure out who wrote the poem together. Gwen and Bridgette thought that the only reasonable contenders would be Owen or DJ, due to Harold being... well, Harold, and Duncan having a big crush on Courtney. However, the person who wrote the haiku was who they never expected (Harold), proving Gwen and Bridgette wrong.
In Brunch of Disgustingness, Gwen, along with nine other contestants, make it to the merge. She takes Leshawna's side, and is very pleased when Bridgette joins them. She does well in the challenges, and doesn't really complain about the dishes. Despite this, the girls still lose the challenge to the guys. Gwen and Leshawna lock Heather out of the girl's cabin later that night.
In No Pain, No Game, Gwen begins to ignore Trent because of the fact that he left her buried alive before. Trent then tells her she was the last person he'd leave buried alive if he had the choice. She is flattered, telling him that saying so was very sweet. They make up, and whisper to each other as their friends take on the most unbelievable dares. Gwen had the task of having her nose hairs pulled out forcefully, and she didn't make it past listening to New Age music torture. She voted Eva off, calling her a freak.In Search and Do Not Destroy, Gwen had to get her key away from a group of skunks. Since Trent had already gotten his key, he helped Gwen out, which made Gwen admit her feelings towards Trent, and also lead her to kiss him. Since Heather saw this as an alliance and a threat, she sabotaged their relationship by tricking Trent and kissing him in front of Gwen. Gwen told Leshawna about what happened, and Leshawna told everyone on the island about the incident. When Trent is eliminated, Gwen, Leshawna and the other campers find out that Heather set them all up. Gwen and Trent say goodbye to each other on good terms, as Gwen tells Trent she didn't even vote for him. They almost share their first mutual kiss, but they are interrupted by Chris.
In Hide and Be Sneaky, she is still very sad about Trent being eliminated, but Leshawna comforts her. She says that, "nothing heals a broken heart like revenge" and Gwen smiles hoping to settle the score with Heather for Trent's unfair elimination. For her hiding place, she hid under a patch of grass. To prevent anything from seeing her, she punched an animal that got near her. Gwen was the fourth to last one caught, before Duncan, Geoff, and Leshawna. Owen accidentally tells her about the guys' alliance, causing the girls to unite and decide who to vote off. Her, Leshawna, and Bridgette all decide to vote off Duncan, although Bridgette was eliminated instead because Izzy didn't want to vote off Owen like Heather and Lindsay insisted.
In That's Off the Chain!, Gwen was playing Frisbee with most of the other remaining contestants. When Heather announced her bike's name, Gwen said that the bike was as light as her brain was. Gwen's bike was described by Chris as "spooky, yet practical." Geoff rode Gwen's bike, but it ended up getting broken in a collision by Geoff. Gwen had to ride Owen's bike, but it was extremely low on the ground, causing dirt to run into her face. She was very amused when Lindsay cursed at Heather, and parted Lindsay on good terms.In Hook, Line, and Screamer, Gwen and Duncan admit they have the same all-time favorite horror movie, which really creeps out DJ. When the challenge begins, in order for the campers to "survive," Gwen takes the leadership role. However, much to her annoyance, nobody listens (except Duncan). Eventually, when there are only her and Duncan left, Gwen decides to go to the kitchen and make herself a sandwich out of pure frustration. She has conversation with the Killer, thinking that he is not a real psycho killer. However, when everyone worriedly enter the building, Gwen kicks the Killer in the face, causing him to leave, and making Gwen get solo invincibility. When DJ is eliminated, she hugs him goodbye along with the other campers. In Wawanakwa Gone Wild!, Gwen is tasked to catch a duck. She fights over a net with Heather, but let's go when she finds duck bait. In a confessional, she says that all she has been through was barely worth the hundred thousand dollars. The duck is seen to be a parody of the Roadrunner from Looney Tunes. Eventually, she is able to keep ahead of the duck and lure him into the cage. This makes her win the reward of a big feast. Right when she is about to eat it, Owen runs into it when he is chasing after his chipmunk. Despite Gwen winning, she receives the final marshmallow. In Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon, Gwen is paired up with Geoff which she is not excited about. Geoff's easy, ongoing attitude annoys Gwen. Geoff and Gwen stop when she thinks they're lost; while Gwen tries to gain her bearings, Geoff starts taking pictures of the surrounding woods. This pushes Gwen over the edge, and she grabs the camera and throws it into a nearby pond, then starts demanding Geoff take things more seriously, and to stop pretending to be her friend. Geoff counters saying that he wasn't pretending, and that he genuinely wanted to be her friend and that if they went to the same school, he'd certainly invite her to his parties, except that he thought she'd never want to go. Gwen reveals that there were times she wishes she was a bubbly popular girl that went to parties and sang karaoke, but dejectedly states that she just doesn't think she has partying in her DNA. Geoff tells her that partying isn't something found in DNA, and that it's more of a state of mind, and invites her to a party when they both leave the island. At the campfire ceremony, Chris hands out marshmallows to Leshawna, Duncan, Heather and Owen. With Geoff and Gwen left, Gwen believes her time is up and concedes defeat, but Chris tells her to sit down, and then gives her the last marshmallow. Gwen is shocked that party boy Geoff was voted off, as he was the nicest guy there; but Duncan, Owen and Heather reveal that's exactly why he had to go, being popular with the others, if Geoff made it to the final they would help Geoff win, so he had to go. Geoff accepts his fate, and heads for the Dock of Shame.
On the way, Gwen stops him and gives him back his camera, which she fished out of the pond on Boney Island, though it probably has some Wawanakwa water in it. Gwen is about to say goodbye when Geoff grabs her and takes a picture of them, complete with a small fish in the image.
In Haute Camp-ture, Chris asks Trent if he has anything to say to any of the campers left in the contest, and he wants to tell Gwen that he's rooting for her and misses her; he also admits that he is in love with Gwen and hopes that she's over the whole "kissing Heather thing." Izzy jumps in and says that if she were Gwen, Trent would be seriously maimed. Courtney says that Gwen is "okay" and smart, but isn't a "team player," comparing Gwen to herself and suggesting that she should be in Gwen's place. Noah tells her to get over it, and Courtney throws her drink at him, knocking him into the water. Lindsay says that Gwen was harsh sometimes, but in the end, she played an awesome joke on Heather, namely planting Harold's red ant farm in her bed. Bridgette says that she liked Gwen and Leshawna because of how nice they were to her when the teams merged, and wanted either of them to win. At the end of the episode, Lindsay, Cody, Bridgette (she also wanted Leshawna to win), and Trent wanted Gwen to win.
In Camp Castaways, she is sad that Leshawna was eliminated in the previous episode. In the confessional, she took herself to the limit, even saying she might die in the island she was on. Gwen made a raft eventually, and gave Duncan a raft ride in exchange for the egg Duncan had found. However, it just took them in a complete circle. After she admitted the worst thing she ever did, Heather questioned if Gwen was even her real name.In Are We There Yeti?, she has to be paired with Heather. Despite their conflict, they eventually realize, only for the challenge, they would have to cooperate. Eventually, after many cases where the guys and the girls stole each others' stuff, the girls were left with no supplies. Gwen thinks the guys are hiding behind a bush, but it turns out it was a Sasquatchanakwa. That night, Heather and Gwen stole all the guys stuff, causing the girls to win invincibility. She parted on good terms with Duncan. In I Triple Dog Dare You!, Gwen seemed that the sudden death challenge was a good idea. She performed some dares, and made Heather do some of her other ones. She did Ezekiel's dare (chew your own toenail slowly), Katie and Sadie's dare (kiss a dead fish), Cody's dare (drop a tray of ice into your underwear and let them melt), Geoff's dare (drink fruit punch from a toilet), Leshawna's dare (walk on a tightrope while holding meat above shark-infested waters) and she saved her last freebie, but didn't use it in able to have an alliance with Owen to try to get Heather eliminated. After several rounds of dares, Gwen formed a temporary alliance with Owen in order to eliminate Heather, and Owen gave half of his twenty freebies to Gwen. Owen agreed because if she split the money with him if she won the game or if Owen won, she'd give him a box full of donuts. Eventually, after Heather performs many dares, she meets her downfall and Gwen finally makes it into the final two, with Owen happy as can be. In The Very Last Episode, Really!, Gwen said the island mostly stank, and the only good thing is that she did meet five sane campers. She said she would use the money to get into a good university, and split half the cash with Owen. After Owen promised a huge party, only Eva, Cody, Leshawna, and Trent remained on her side. Gwen wore the chicken hat for the race. Gwen had a good start, taking an easy lead, but after Heather put butter on her pole, it stopped her for a bit, until Trent wiped it off. Gwen had a little daydream about Trent, but Leshawna told her to knock it off as she got the flag, taking the lead. For the next challenge, she got one of the eggs and had to cross a plank to the other side without dying. Heather, though found Justin and took off his shirt, distracting both her and Owen. Gwen stops being distracted and gets a good lead. Owen later stops to run to the bathroom after having a cupcake that Heather was supposed to give Gwen to make her feel sick to her stomach. Apparently, Gwen gave it to Owen causing him to have an "over-active" digestive system. In Owen's ending, she was winning until Owen gets motivated by the brownies, causing her to be the runner-up, but allowing her to regain confidence in Trent. At this moment, Trent lifts Gwen onto his shoulders and convinces her to go out with him. Gwen finally agrees. At the end of the episode, Gwen tries to be kind to Heather, but playfully reminds her that she still stank literally and metaphorically. In Gwen's ending to The Very Last Episode, Really!, she wins the season. After Owen knocks her down, Trent walks over and encourages Gwen to get up and keep fighting, saying that she shouldn't lose this thing because she is angry. They stare at each other for a while and Gwen finally smiles while Trent helps her up. They continue to stare at each other until she hears Owen say "Ooh brownies I'm coming to get you!" She then says she will never win, but Trent tells her to run. Owen's side begins to cheer as Owen makes it to the finish line. As Izzy was outside the finish line, Owen ran into her and stopped there, allowing Gwen to pass him and win Total Drama Island. She is then awarded the final marshmallow and Owen gives her a hug. Owen is disappointed that there isn't going to be a party, but then Gwen says that after her studies she is going to throw a party and everyone is invited (except Heather). Owen then asks if she is going to take someone special, to which she replies, "Only if he will go with me," referring to Trent. Trent and Gwen then officially become a couple. Then, the guys throw Chris off the dock and Gwen tells Heather that she has to be happy for that, before telling her that she stinks.
In Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island, Gwen first laughs at the smiley face Leshawna had drawn on the back of Heather's head and later allies with Trent and Leshawna (her current closest friends in the island) for the search for the million-dollar briefcase. Her group is the only one that witnesses Heather being attacked by beavers, but instead of helping, they laughed at her and continued their search. Later, she and Trent have to leave Leshawna, and later fall into Lake Wawanakwa, joining several other contestants in a tie. Due to not being able to destroy the fine print on her contract, she is forced to compete in Total Drama Action against her will.Bridgette being voted off. She starts out being as close as ever to Trent, her now-official boyfriend, but things quickly get tense in Alien Resurr-eggtion, when Trent becomes jealous of Gwen and Duncan's close friendship. Gwen notices Trent going out of his way to fit into their conversations and failing miserably, which makes her feel awkward. Despite the tension, Trent proves his worth when he saves Gwen's lucky necklace from falling in the sewers, sacrificing his potential win for the challenge. Gwen is so awed by his devotion that she gives Trent her necklace as a good luck charm, saying it looks good on him. She and Trent win the challenge, but in a shocking twist, the two winners are now forced to become founders of the two new teams for the season, meaning Trent and Gwen have to compete against each other, much to their displeasure.
In Riot On Set, Gwen becomes the captain of the Screaming Gaffers. She picks Duncan, Leshawna, Harold, DJ, and Heather to form her team. Because Duncan was her first pick, Trent is once again jealous of Gwen's friendship with him, who retaliates by picking "the beautiful" Lindsay for his team first. Gwen's comparatively casual choice of Duncan made her realize that Trent was now trying to make her jealous of him, which leaves her shocked. Trent's behavior in this episode continues to surprise Gwen as he outright calls her and Duncan "punk wannabes" when Duncan catches Gwen when she falls from the steep hill, having the other Killer Grips gasp in shock as Gwen and Duncan become gravely annoyed. Gwen tries to keep her cool and focus on defeating the whole opposing team rather than just Trent. Through this, Gwen's team wins the first challenge. Gwen later assures Trent that she has no romantic feelings for Duncan, who she says keeps a secret photo of Courtney under his pillow.
However, in Beach Blanket Bogus, Trent begins to act strangely as he becomes oddly particular about the strangest things, such as how many eggs he has on his plate. Duncan has now resorted to pranking him, but seems to have no real animosity towards him and is just poking fun at him for his obsession over Gwen. When Gwen's team wins their first challenge, she gives a friendly hug to Duncan, convincing Trent (in his eyes), that Gwen would eventually betray him. When the cast return to Total Drama Island for the remainder of their beach-themed challenge, Trent's obsession for Gwen reaches new levels in wanting to name the Killer Grips' sand castle after her, as well as doing absolutely everything nine times. Gwen realizes the significance of the number when Duncan points out that the number of letters in her name combined with the number of letters in Trent make up nine. Harold adds that the obsession with the number started when Trent first took an interest in Gwen. This causes her to panic when Trent tries to strike up a conversation with her and she discovers him carrying nine branches. Later, Trent throws a dance-off challenge against Leshawna, believing that Gwen would be saddened if her team lost. Gwen feels responsible for causing his mental distress. The two have a private chat in the forest where they iron out their problems. As they are about to kiss, Owen reveals himself in wanting to see them make out. They respond by throwing branches at him.
Despite Gwen's attempts to keep the relationship together, she officially breaks up with Trent in 3:10 to Crazytown as he continues to throw challenges for her sake while she simply wants to win the competition fair and square. Seeing that the obsession for her was changing Trent for the worse, Gwen gently ended their relationship. However, Justin overheard this and called Gwen out on cheating to win. He exposed the situation to the entire Killer Grips team, whom initially did not believe that Gwen would resort to such measures, but Gwen shamefully admits to her being in the wrong by not resolving the situation sooner. Justin and the others found it hard to trust Gwen until she told them specifically to vote off Trent in order to prove that she honestly wanted to win the right way. The team did as Gwen instructed, thus eliminating Trent from the competition without even having a chance to say goodbye to Gwen. Gwen, however, is shown a video of Trent being escorted out via Chris, who simply did it just to make Gwen feel even worse about what she had done. Due to Gwen allowing things to get out of hand this far in the competition, she now apparently "owes" the Killer Grips (at the insistence of Justin) even after following her advice to vote Trent off; as a result, Gwen and Justin become closer enemies.
In The Aftermath: I, there seem to be only a few people who agree with Gwen's decision to break up with Trent and get him voted off the show. At the end of the episode, the only people of the non-participating contestants that seem to still agree with her are Cody and possibly Geoff (who was her most vocal supporter). He may or may not have changed his mind after making up with Bridgette (who was an avid Trent supporter from the beginning, despite Gwen being one of her best friends) and hearing Trent's side of the story. This turn of events indicates that Gwen has become somewhat unpopular amongst the show's contestants, despite proving to be such a competent and honest contestant.In The Chefshank Redemption, Gwen begins to throw challenges for the Killer Grips throughout the prison challenge. Heather was suspicious about her and keeps accusing Gwen of trying to make their team lose. During the escape tunnel challenge, Gwen slows her team down by faking claustrophobia and whacks Harold on the head with a gold shovel. As it was down between Gwen and Heather for the final Gilded Chris Award, Heather gets the trophy and heads up to the podium to tell everyone what a loser Gwen was. In the confessional, Heather, Harold, and Leshawna voted her off. Leshawna and Harold both voted off Gwen for the shovel incident. As she was being handcuffed by Chef in order to head to the Lame-o-Sine, Duncan offered to take Gwen's place, as a way of saying he really wanted to be out of the competition, but was quick to say that he was just kidding when Chef agreed to it. Gwen tells Duncan he won't get out of the competition that easily and wishes him lots of luck. In the confessional, it was revealed that the Grips ordered Gwen to vote herself off the show. Gwen is the first contestant from the Screaming Gaffers to get voted off, and the first person to ever vote themselves off in the Total Drama series.
In One Flu Over the Cuckoos, the Screaming Gaffers have learned about Gwen cheating on behalf of the Killer Grips, though they do not yet know that she was blackmailed into doing so by Justin. However, Duncan was impressed of her actions instead as he "didn't know she had it in her."In The Aftermath: II many of the other contestants (especially Courtney, Katie, and Sadie) and most of the audience seem to not like Gwen much anymore as she is booed by the whole audience when she comes out on stage, with everyone believing that Gwen had sold out Trent to stay in the competition instead of just taking a break from him. She is criticized by everyone for the way she broke up with Trent. Throughout the show she states that she does still cares deeply about Trent and likes everyone on the show, and truthfully states that she and Duncan are only friends. This however, does not get through to Courtney as Geoff, for his own amusement, manipulatively displays an off-screen scene in which she and Duncan allegedly almost kissed. A jealous Courtney, who refuses to see that Gwen is telling the truth about herself and Duncan, chooses to believe Geoff, and is infuriated, thereby sealing her rivalry with Gwen. When Gwen is about to go into a piranha-infested dunk tank at Geoff's insistence, Trent helps stop it and says he did cheat so he knew he would be kicked off. Trent's intervention allows him and Gwen to make up with each other, as she thanks him and apologizes for what she did to him. Trent returns this, saying they are even. Currently, the two of them have return to being friends. Additionally, Trent was able to fix her reputation and relationship with everyone on the show again, except Courtney.
Gwen is mentioned in One Million Bucks, B.C. because of her relationship with Duncan. Throughout the episode Courtney tells off Duncan about his "close friendship" with Gwen, assuming that Duncan purposely tried to hook up with her. Duncan truthfully denied this at all times, along with admitting he is still crazy about Courtney. Gwen appears again in The Aftermath: III, now as a commentator sitting next to Trent. However she has no lines in this episode. In Mutiny on the Soundstage, Gwen is shocked along with the other contestants about the tie between Duncan and Beth.Like everyone else, Gwen is seen again in The Aftermath: IV. She gets embarrassed when Trent plays the guilt trip while asking his question. Later, she gets her chance, and asks the two finalists "what would they do with the money to help the environment when they're not thinking of themselves." Gwen likes Beth's answer, until Duncan says his answer and she then says she knows who her vote goes to. Gwen is later seen in the voting stall where she says she won't show her vote as she doesn't want to be seen as "predictable." Gwen is seen smiling when Duncan wins, but doesn't really cheer along with everyone else. In Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special, it's revealed that after Total Drama Action, Gwen began a web show to talk about her time on Total Drama with the rest of the cast and to help the environment. Katie and Sadie joined her as her assistants (though they would speak before they were supposed to). This implies that they are not mad at her anymore. The show soon came under attack by Heather, who mocked the show with her own web video. This caused Gwen to lash out with secretly recorded footage. The two were brought into Celebrity Manhunt's studio for an interview, only to get into a fist fight. Around the same time, Gwen has been receiving e-mails from fans who asked whether she liked Duncan or not. She denies them and states that Duncan already has a girlfriend. However, after discovering that Duncan and Courtney had broken up, Gwen states in her blog that Courtney is nuts to break up with Duncan and accidentally calls Duncan hot. This show that at this point, Gwen is already attracted to Duncan. Gwen joins the other contestants at the red carpet show, only to find that Chris is starting a new reality show. She teams up with the rest of the cast to stop Chris and his new team, but their efforts are in vain when Courtney drives the bus off a cliff. Gwen is amongst the people rescued by Chris and is qualified for Total Drama World Tour. In the makeup trailer confessional Gwen comments that this may be her season. Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 1, Gwen got off the bus after Heather, and asked for a seat as far away from Heather and her "pony hair" ponytail. Duncan makes a joke about Heather's hair as well, and Gwen laughs, much to the disgust of Courtney. At first, Gwen refused to sing, along with Duncan, but after Bridgette read the rules of the competition and Cody persuaded her, Gwen changed her mind and sang along with the others. During the challenge, Gwen was climbing the pyramid by herself, until Duncan offered for her to join him and Courtney. Gwen and Courtney started arguing all the way up to the top of the pyramid, which lead to Duncan becoming highly annoyed with the two and causing him to quit. Gwen, along with Courtney, were both sad when Duncan decided to quit. Gwen was placed on Team Amazon, along with Heather, Courtney, Izzy, and Cody. In Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 2, Gwen was still in shock that Duncan quit the competition. Cody tries to hit on Gwen again, since Trent is gone, but Gwen only thanks him about helping her get closer to Trent.

When Courtney calls herself the "team leader," Gwen tells Courtney that they don't need a team leader, because they are already winning. Gwen had two solos in Before We Die. During the first challenge, Heather suggested that Gwen do it, adding that Gwen's face needing "remodeling," Gwen reminds Heather that they are on the same team and tells her to flip the "witch switch" off. Gwen suggests spinning hockey heads for their commercial, but Heather and Courtney have different ideas. The argument ends up with the girls (except Sierra) storming off. When Chris asked for the Amazons' commercial, Gwen stated that this was very humiliating. But suddenly, Cody and Sierra appear saying that they did a commercial. Cody and Sierra win the challenge for Team Amazon, as Chef liked their commercial because it had exploding donuts. In the end, Sierra cheered with a group hug with Cody. Gwen, along with Courtney and Heather, were about to join the hug, but Sierra told them to back off. In Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better, Gwen and her team are enjoying their time in the winners' compartment. After everyone arrives in the Yukon, Courtney suggests everyone to huddle for warmth, Cody tries to hug Gwen, but she pushes him away.

Gwen asked her what she was doing and Sierra told her she was working on her blog and offered Gwen to look at her e-mail when she was finished, Gwen said that would be cool. However, after seeing it wasn't a real computer, Gwen turned down her offer. After Chris announced where they were going, Gwen stated that since it's the Amazon and they're called Team Amazon, it could be a lucky sign. Sierra told Gwen that it's bad luck to be overly-confident and covered Gwen's mouth, to keep her from saying it again. Chris even announces over the intercom that he hoped no one from Team Amazon said being in the Amazon would bring good luck. After this announcement, Gwen is given dirty looks from all of her teammates. Cody begged Gwen if she could look after the EpiPen for him instead of Sierra, in case he gets bitten by bugs that he is deathly allergic to (and because Cody is in love with her). When they come to the fork in the road, Heather lets Gwen decide which way to go "because she is feeling so lucky." She chooses right, against Cody and Sierra's idea, and Gwen and her team are captured by the "Zing-Zings." When Gwen and her team were tied up, Gwen searched through Cody's back pocket for a flashlight so she could use the batteries to contact Chris on the walkie-talkie. Gwen instead found some X-Ray glasses, which could see through Cody's clothes. Gwen freaked out after seeing Cody naked and states in the confessional that everyone wears underwear in the Amazon. Gwen accidentally stabbed herself with the EpiPen in Cody's pocket, which makes her hyper and jittery. Gwen had a solo as a rap in Gypsy Rap. Afterwards, Gwen fell asleep since the EpiPen was beginning to wear off. After Team Amazon lost, Gwen and Courtney were able to talk Sierra into voting off Heather, but Sierra accepts on one condition on Gwen's part: don't be nice to Cody, which Gwen agrees to. Gwen was shocked when Chris reveals the challenge wasn't an elimination challenge, that the ceremony was fake, and she knew Heather would definitely get her revenge sooner or later.
In Can't Help Falling in Louvre, Gwen does not speak much in the episode, until the walk-off challenge. Gwen told Cody to cheer up Sierra, since her crying was getting on her team's nerves, and stated that the team could do the challenge without them.

During the walk-off, she is seen wearing one of DJ's shirts and hat, as she sulks across the stage. She gets frustrated, throws the shirt at Chris, and walks off-stage, angry.

She and Courtney are sitting together in first class, laughing and gossiping about Heather, and her attraction to Alejandro, for which Heather denied. Later, she is seen in the confessional saying that Heather shouldn't become too obsessed with Alejandro, or it'll mess up her game plan, like her relationship with Duncan did last season. She quickly corrects herself and says Trent. She then demands the tape back. Later, Courtney and Gwen both think they see Duncan, but it is just a rock shaped like him. Sierra tells them that when you "see" people, it means you care about them. When Courtney then wonders why Gwen also thought the rock was Duncan, Gwen claims she has no idea, laughing awkwardly. At the end of the episode, Gwen lies to Heather saying that she's the one who got Team Amazon lost; taking the blame to save Courtney. In Jamaica Me Sweat, Gwen states that she'll take dude smell over leaks any day when she and Courtney complain about the economy section.

During the first part of the challenge, she mentions her concerns of getting a sun burn, due to her paleness. The sun starts to burn her, but the burns only get worse when Heather slaps her, reminding her to get moving in the challenge by jumping off the cliff. In the water, she manages to avoid a shark, but gets shocked by the eels as she finds the gold. Alejandro jumps in and saves her, carrying her and the reward out of the water afterwards. Her team wins the first part of the challenge, but she ends up in the infirmary with Owen and Izzy due to electric shock by the eels. When Owen asks her if she was okay, she replies that it's nothing a little coma wouldn't fix and that at least that she's out of the sun. She seems really surprised when she sees Izzy being so smart. As Owen laments over his loss of Izzy, Gwen states that he got sucked out of a plane and nearly died thanks to her, and that it was just that day. When the song bell rings, she complains that she and Owen were in the infirmary, and shouldn’t have to sing, but Chris reminds her that if she doesn't sing, she's would be out of the competition. She provides a little bit of backup singing for Owen as he sings Oh My Izzy. Unlike Owen, she was not released from the infirmary in time to compete in the challenge, and instead was held to recover. She's later seen with her team on the plane as they give angry looks at Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot, who won the challenge.

In Greece's Pieces, Gwen is talking with Courtney about Duncan. She says in the confessional that she feels like a terrible person for kissing Courtney's boyfriend, now that she has become her friend. Although, Gwen says she would like to kiss him again.

A deleted scene shows that she eventually managed to activate her parachute, and spends her drop complaining about losing because of her allergies, she then cusses out Courtney, and promises to "make her wish she was never born."

Like Noah, Gwen doesn't seem to be excited about returning to the plane, but participate anyway due to their contract.

Inside the mine shaft, she tries to get her flashlight to work, but it dies out and she screams in fear. Fortunately, Gwen is found by Zoey, who helps her to calm down, and they continue on together.

Reaching the top of the ropes, she yells down to Courtney that she is going to have a little chat with her after the challenge. At the snapping bars, Gwen clings to the bars to avoid the snapping turtles below, though one turtle manages to bite her toes. But she somehow gets to the end of the bars and runs to the “Duck and Cover”. When Courtney explains to her that Cameron kissed he, Gwen questions why because it came out of nowhere. At the zip line, Gwen and Courtney finish behind Zoey, who wins immunity. At the elimination ceremony, everyone votes for Alejandro.

On their way to the challenge, Gwen and Courtney hold onto each other's shoulders and laugh at Scott's stuttering of words.

She makes an offer to vote for Scott with Zoey, in exchange for her ex-friend to vote for herself. Gwen then runs and catches up with Mal at the chocolate pool. While the fire-breathing flower attacks Mal, Gwen quickly scoops her fudge and retakes the lead. In the end, Chris makes everyone eat their own sundae.

As Courtney is flushed, Gwen shows no remorse about her former friend being gone.
In The Bold and the Booty-ful, Gwen starts out in the confessional congratulating herself on being the only original contestant left.

When he gives her an unfriendly reply, she reconsiders it. Her challenge is to find a portrait of Chris in the wreckage of his old "cottage."
In The Final Wreck-ening, Gwen is shot out of Owen's "bubbles" and is now Zoey's helper. Zoey and Mal/Mike had to go through the Moats of Doom and reach the sword on top to win $1,000,000. Gwen had an idea to use sticks to use as stilts, but the sticks ended up being burned. Cameron, another helper, was still in his bubble and decided to use his bubble to use as a raft to get Zoey to the next moat. As Zoey goes to the final moat, Mal comes in and throws Cameron and Gwen off the second moat, spraining her ankle, resulting in Cameron having to carry her. Once Mal went back to normal, all the helpers went and kissed each other, but Gwen only kisses Cameron on the cheek. Then she is seen in a rock with a stick on her hand which she used to hit Heather`s head, after that she mentions in the confesional that she has been waiting for four seasons to get revenge on Heather.
