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. She is smart, independent, and level-headed, stating her best quality is her inability to get excited over minuscule things. Her attitude at first seems cold and harsh, but she is not a bitter person, rather cautious of whom she lets into her life. Beneath her tough exterior is a kind heart that learns to trust as the series progresses, Gwen's guard lowering with each season. Despite her distaste for whatever "the sheep" are fond of, she actually does desire to be welcomed by the popular crowd. As revealed in Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon, she distances herself from it because she believes it is not where she belongs. She isn't afraid to stand her ground should her reputation take a hit. Gwen also suffers from claustrophobia, as seen in Phobia Factor, The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, and Zeek And Ye Shall Find. She believes strongly in karma, and is also 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 jumps off the cliff, screaming continuously during the drop. She has another negative interaction with Heather. This is when she becomes exasperated over Heather's refusal to participate in the challenge.
In The Big Sleep, Gwen is 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 are sharing a very tender moment (and Gwen was about to fall asleep), but are 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 manages to win the challenge, after Duncan takes a snooze on "the can." Gwen falls asleep right when Chris announces the winner.
In Dodgebrawl, Gwen could barely stay awake for most of the episode, as she shows up late for breakfast, and immediately falls asleep when she sits down at the table. When Heather is teasing the Bass, Courtney tries to throw her oatmeal at Heather, but Heather moves away and the oatmeal hits Gwen instead. She participates 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 jumps out in front of her when a dodge ball is heading towards her. She also gets Courtney out for throwing oatmeal at her earlier in the episode during round five. Leshawna laughs along with Gwen, as Leshawna tells Courtney she "messed with the wrong white girl!", leading to the start of Gwen and Leshawna's friendship. Gwen tells Noah to shut it after he makes a hypocritical comment after their team lost the challenge and Heather agrees with her.
In Not Quite Famous, Gwen starts a more complicated conflict with Heather. Gwen gets angry when she immediately declares herself lead judge of the auditions. She is calmed (and smitten) by Trent, however, when he steals an extra muffin for her. Sometime later in the episode, Gwen is alone with her diary, but 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 hates the island. On her way back, she confronts Lindsay, who attempts to stop Gwen from going into the cabin so Heather may steal Gwen's diary. Later, at the talent show, the song Trent sang is devoted to Gwen. When Heather reads Gwen's diary out loud to the entire viewing audience, it is revealed she has a crush on Trent, leading to her running away in embarrassment. Because of this, she borrows a red ant farm from Harold, and dumps in Heather's bed.
In The Sucky Outdoors, Gwen is disappointed and embarrassed because of the talent show that she even refuses 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 admits her fear of being buried alive, due to her claustrophobia. For her part of the challenge, she has to be buried alive for five minutes. To help her out, Trent tries to talk to her via a walkie-talkie, but Gwen is left alone after Trent faces his own fear of mimes. Unintentionally, she is left in there much longer than just five minutes, since Trent forgets all about her. Right after, he faces his fear of mimes and goes 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, and ultimately losing the entire challenge for the Killer Bass.
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 is also snagged off-guard by Lindsay and Beth. Gwen also mentions Cody is 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 works with Lindsay on baking the flambe.
In Who Can You Trust?, Gwen is 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 is embarrassed, the incident actually helps them win. She later is paired with Leshawna for the toboggan race down the cliff. She gets scared about the route Leshawna took, as she wasn't blindfolded like Leshawna was, though they manage 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 gains 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 believes it was Geoff. Both Gwen and Bridgette fail trying to get their crushes to admit the poem. Gwen is witness to Geoff telling Bridgette he did not 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 awkward as usual and Duncan having a big crush on Courtney. However, the person who wrote the haiku is who the two 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 does not make it past listening to New Age music torture. She votes Eva off, calling her a freak.In Search and Do Not Destroy, Gwen has to get her key away from a group of skunks. Since Trent has already gotten his key, he helps Gwen out, which makes Gwen admit her feelings towards Trent, and also leads her to kiss him. Since Heather saw this occur as an alliance and a threat, she sabotages their relationship by tricking Trent and kissing him in front of Gwen. Gwen tells Leshawna about what happened, and Leshawna, in return, tells 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 hides under a patch of grass. To prevent anything from seeing her, she punches an animal that got near her. Gwen is 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 is eliminated instead because Izzy didn't want to vote off Owen like Heather and Lindsay insisted.
In That's Off the Chain!, Gwen is shown to be playing Frisbee with most of the other remaining contestants. When Heather announces her bike's name, Gwen said that the bike was as light as her brain was. Gwen's bike is described by Chris as "spooky, yet practical." Geoff rides Gwen's bike, but it ends up getting broken in a collision by Geoff. Gwen has to ride Owen's bike, but it was extremely low on the ground, causing dirt to run into her face. She is very amused when Lindsay curses at Heather, and parts with the former 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 enters 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's task to catch a duck. She fights over a net with Heather, but lets go when she finds duck bait. In a confessional, she says that all she has been through is 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 is 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 is 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 likes Gwen and Leshawna because of how nice they were to her when the teams merged, and wants either of them to win. At the end of the episode, Lindsay, Cody, Bridgette (she also wanted Leshawna to win), and Trent want Gwen to win.
In Camp Castaways, she seems sad about Leshawna getting 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 makes a raft eventually, and gives Duncan a raft ride in exchange for the egg Duncan had found. However, it just took them in a complete circle. After she admits the worst thing she ever did, Heather questions if Gwen is 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 steal all the guys stuff, causing the girls to win invincibility. She parts on good terms with Duncan.happy as can be. In I Triple Dog Dare You!, Gwen thinks that the sudden death challenge is a good idea. She performs some dares, and makes Heather do some of her other ones. She does 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 saves 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 forms a temporary alliance with Owen in order to eliminate Heather, and Owen gives half of his twenty freebies to Gwen. Owen agrees 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.
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 promises a huge party, only Eva, Cody, Leshawna, and Trent remain on her side. Gwen wears the chicken hat for the race. Gwen has a good start, taking an easy lead, but after Heather put butter on her pole, it stops her for a bit, until Trent wipes it off. Gwen has a little daydream about Trent, but Leshawna tells her to knock it off as she gets the flag, taking the lead. For the next challenge, she gets one of the eggs and has 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 has 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 laugh at her and continue 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 is 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 is 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 ends their relationship. However, Justin overhears this and calls Gwen out on cheating to win. He exposes the situation to the entire Killer Grips team, whom initially does 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 tells them specifically to vote off Trent in order to prove that she honestly wanted to win the right way. The team does 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 is 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 votes her off. Leshawna and Harold both vote off Gwen for the shovel incident. As she is being handcuffed by Chef in order to head to the Lame-o-Sine, Duncan offers to take Gwen's place, as a way of saying he really wants to be out of the competition, but is quick to say that he was just kidding when Chef agrees 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 is 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 had been blackmailed into doing so by Justin. However, Duncan is 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 returned 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 denies 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 is 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 is revealed that after Total Drama Action, Gwen begins 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 join 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 mocks the show with her own web video. This causes 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 she qualifies 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. During Lovin' Time, Gwen sings as a part of a trio including Courtney and Heather during the song, but has no solos. Gwen laughs at Heather, when she tells the rest of the team that they should listen to her more. Gwen and her team get lost on their camel and causes them to arrive at the Nile last. After Sierra switches onto Team Amazon by giving away Izzy, the team is able to cross the Nile easier, but aren't able to get their camel onto their boat until Alejandro requests Izzy to help them out. During Rowin' Time, Gwen has minimal participation, but has a small solo, pleading the crocodiles to let them reach the shore. Gwen, and the rest of her team, were able to cross the finish line first and escape elimination.
In Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan, Gwen, Courtney and Heather are still on bad terms with each other. 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. During the challenge, Gwen thought it wasn't so hard, until the ice she was standing on was about to break. Gwen is seen later standing by a pole, waiting for her team to pick her up. Gwen and her team sang backup for Bridgette in Stuck to a Pole. Gwen and her team were the last ones to cross the finish lines, but since Team Victory didn't have Bridgette, Team Amazon came in second place, while Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot came in first. In Broadway, Baby!, Gwen and her team are sitting in the commercial cabin. Gwen offers to help Courtney in voting off Heather if they lose another challenge, which Courtney gladly accepts. Before Courtney was about to suggest they belay up the statue, Gwen sarcastically says it worked so well last time. Gwen's team were the first up the Statue of Liberty, Gwen went down the fire pole first, and seemed to have landed awfully hard, as she said in a strained voice "I'm okay!" Team Amazon won the challenge, after Heather switched Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot's baby carriage with a real baby carriage.
In Slap Slap Revolution, Gwen and Courtney were relaxing and eating chocolates served to them. Gwen had one solo in Eine Kleine, singing about how she couldn't wait for Heather to be eliminated. Gwen and her team came in last place during the second challenge. Gwen, along with Courtney, sat out the last challenge and watched the rest of her team. After Heather got slapped by Leshawna, Gwen said in the confessional that she couldn't have thought of a better way for Heather to take one for the team. Team Amazon won the challenge, after Alejandro let Sierra knock him off.In The Am-AH-Zon Race, Gwen was watching Sierra work on her "computer." 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. She is chosen by DJ to be his model, Gwen accepts, yet complains that she hates models, and being stared at. 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. Despite this, DJ actually wins the challenge because despite Gwen's poor modeling skills, the judges like DJ's shirt.In the beginning of Newf Kids on the Rock, Gwen is seen reading a book, until she gets annoyed with Heather climbing through the vents. 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. After they land in Jamaica, Gwen asks Chris if they, excluding Owen and Izzy, would get any help, should they get injured. Chris states that they're broke, implying a no. 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 a deleted scene, Gwen is shown relaxing when suddenly a group of eels appear before her and attacked and shocked her.
At the beginning of I See London..., Gwen is shown to have a horrible sun burn located only on her left hand and is confused on how it got there (not knowing what Cody had been doing beforehand). When the challenge is announced with Jack the Ripper, Gwen reveals she did a speech on him in elementary school and Courtney did a report on the city of London. This knowledge actually winds up getting her and Courtney working together graciously. When she, Courtney, and Heather arrive at a room with a medieval torture machine, Gwen volunteers Heather to be the victim, and tortures her until she gets the next clue. Later, Gwen and Courtney go into a punk rock club and find Duncan, whom they capture, which causes her team to win. Later in the confessional, Gwen starts talking about Duncan, and he interrupts her. Duncan asks her what happened to her hand, which she responds saying she was confused to what happened to it, but was glad he was back to make fun of her about it, Duncan returned the compliment and grabbed her sun-burned hand, which stung, but they end up kissing with Tyler as the sole witness.
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. After Chris announces they're going to Greece, she is seen flirting with Duncan. Gwen, along with Duncan, volunteer themselves for the first challenge. Later, she sings Greek Mix with Duncan and gets a golden medal. In the tie-breaker, Tyler reveals the secret of Duncan and Gwen's kiss, causing Courtney to become furious with Gwen and yell at her. Courtney tries to attack Gwen, saying that she has lost all trust she had just started to develop with Gwen. After seeing how sad Gwen was, Cody decided to win the challenge so she could stay, but Gwen is slapped by Courtney. At the end of the episode, she says that she loved the kiss, but wonders if the kiss was really worth it. Gwen then sneaks into the elimination ceremony, to see who is getting eliminated. Once Duncan is safe, Gwen silently cheers.
In The EX-Files, she is seen alone in the first class cabin, as Gwen finds herself the new target amongst her teammates. She talks with Duncan in the plane, making Courtney even angrier at them. With Sierra and Courtney still furious at her, she finds herself being called the new Heather. Gwen is scolded by her teammates after accidentally leading them onto a minefield, she stays silent while Heather and Courtney sing, Boyfriend Kisser, a song reprimanding her for kissing Duncan in I See London..., she tries to congratulate Cody in the attempt to pull him into an alliance, but is cut short by Heather. In Area 51, Duncan and Gwen share their second kiss and the two agree on becoming a couple. Gwen manages to find an alien artifact, but while running to give it to Chris, she is tripped by Courtney, fortunately for her Chris caught the box and gives Team Amazon the victory, saving Gwen from elimination.In Picnic at Hanging Dork, Gwen makes an alliance with Cody, offering to help him vote Sierra out later if he helps her out with Courtney. During the emu challenge, Gwen rides alone and reaches the peak quite late, only managing to overtake Sierra. During the bungee-jumping challenge Gwen grabs a cactus instead of a sheep, causing her to yowl in pain. When she sees Duncan fake-crying over Courtney, Gwen angrily talks to herself because she thinks he still has feelings for Courtney. At the elimination ceremony, Gwen ties with Courtney and the two are forced into a tie-breaker challenge where they have to feed two starving koalas without using their hands. Unfortunately, Gwen is allergic to eucalyptus and her face immediately begins to puff up. Due to Courtney's experience in koala feeding, Gwen ends up losing the challenge and is eliminated. She walks towards the entrance as she insults Courtney and falls from the plane in mid-insult, before being able to put on her parachute. 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." However, her speech is cut off when she lands next to the same Kangaroo that had punched Duncan earlier. The kangaroo growls angrily at Gwen kicks her in the face before the camera shuts off.
Although Gwen didn't appear in Sweden Sour, she was mentioned multiple times by many of the contestants. Cody even built a replica of Gwen's head out of wood during one of the challenges, resulting in the song We Built Gwen's Face, and also drew pictures of her. Duncan also carve a picture of her face on one of the chairs to symbolize his feelings for her.In Aftermath Aftermayhem, Gwen is one of the three guests added to the peanut gallery, the other guests being Noah and Tyler. Blaineley introduced her as the girl referred to as "boyfriend kisser," and the "new Heather." Unlike last season, she came into the studio with a smile on her face and wasn't booed by the audience. However, a bear follows her for an unknown reason, but was pulled back by the interns. Like Noah, Gwen doesn't seem to be excited about returning to the plane, but participate anyway due to their contract. While in line, she was reunited with Trent, who brings up about her and Duncan and says that he didn't see it coming (despite his jealousy from the previous season). Gwen did not receive one of the cans that allowed an attempt to return to the competition. After Tyler was eliminated, she talks and jokes around with Trent, showing she is still able to be friends with him.
Gwen was mentioned in Niagara Brawls, when Chris makes the cast think she has returned. As he describes the returning contestant, Sierra, Heather and Courtney scowl, while Duncan and Cody are both shown smiling and expecting Gwen, but are disappointed to find that it is Blaineley entering the competition instead.
In African Lying Safari, Gwen was mentioned by Heather in order to get Duncan off his game which is successful and Duncan was eliminated. In the exclusive clip of the episode, Duncan tells Gwen that he will be seeing her soon.
In Awwwwww, Drumheller, Gwen was mentioned by Cody, who was having a dream about Gwen asking him to marry her.In Hawaiian Style, Gwen was sitting in the Peanut Gallery next to Duncan. Gwen, along the other ex-contestants, were frightened by Bruno and takes cover behind Blaineley's dolly with Duncan holding her. She was also seen in the rest of the episode, cheering for Cody. In a Polish clip from this episode, Duncan and Gwen were relaxing together while Courtney was singing a song insulting them. Duncan eventually got so angry that he threw a sandal at Courtney's face, knocking her down. Gwen smiled at Duncan and they kissed.
In Hawaiian Punch, Gwen was seen cheering for Cody in the first part of the episode and glares at Alejandro for trying to kill him. She was also seen at the top of the volcano when the winner was announced. At the end of the episode, she escapes from the volcano along with the other ex-contestants, and mocked Chris and Chef when their boat was sinking. She is last seen swimming away from the island as it is being covered by lava.
In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Gwen appears on the yacht with the other twenty-three original contestants. She and Duncan are seen making out passionately while DJ, Harold, and Leshawna dance nearby.
Gwen appears in The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, once again facing her worst fear; being buried underground, but this time with the new contestant, Sam. When she realizes where she is, she begins to hyperventilate and bang on the chest. As part of the challenge, the new contestants are required to save the two of them. Gwen attempts to call Chris with her cellphone, saying he has gone too far, but she faints when Sam farts on her. Eventually, Jo found the chest they are in and Dakota frees them, but she just tosses Gwen aside in order to save her beloved, Sam.
Gwen returns to All-Stars for the sole purpose of trying to resolve her friendship with Courtney, but Courtney is not willing to forgive this transgression and continues her hatred towards her from their last encounter. Compared to Total Drama World Tour, she seems to lament the kiss she had with Duncan more than ever, especially when she is placed on the Villainous Vultures solely for her involvement in the love triangle. Because of the contrast she has with most of her team, during the challenges, she would try to make her team work together, but since she was the only one to place any trust in anyone on her team, this often goes nowhere. Several contestants on the team, including Heather, Jo, and Alejandro sometimes try to fake their refusal to work together in order to form an alliance with her, but Gwen doesn't fall for it because she knows what they are up to. In addition, due to a running gag where Gwen would accidentally hurt Courtney in the first few episodes when she is attempting to apologize to her, Chris and the rest of her team think she is actually a villain.
When the season begins, her and Duncan are still in a relationship, although there appear to be some issues regarding it, mostly due to the aforementioned regret from Gwen. Duncan is shown to be the only one who reassures her when she is placed on the Villainous Vultures, but this fails to cheer Gwen up. Though Duncan is among the contestants that think that Gwen is trying to actually be a villain, he still shows commitment to her, such as when he sacrifices himself to get shot by a leech in Saving Private Leechball, which later causes him to be involved with a team switch with Courtney. The two do not interact again until Moon Madness, but the episode also marks the end of their relationship. Frustrated by his mentions of Courtney during the episode, Gwen appears to be jealous and frustrated with him until, at the end of the episode where he mentions her again, she breaks up with him, saying that any thrill of the relationship was over. After their break up, Gwen's opinion on Duncan greatly changes as she frequently makes fun of him whenever he acts like a hero and even ignores him when he tries to warn her about Mal's existence.
Gwen continues to try to make up her friendship with Courtney once she switches teams, but similarly to when they were on different teams, Courtney still hates her greatly at first. Even after Gwen cries in the confessional over her failing to make up this friendship, she still does not believe that she is trying to actually be friends with her, and when Gwen saves Courtney from a deer that was about to attack her, she barely shows any appreciation towards it at all. It is not until No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, where after Gwen tells Courtney that she broke up with Duncan, where the two would start to be friends again, but the next episode has Chris rig the match in order for the two to fight each other. Even though the fight is initially fierce when Courtney is shown videos of Gwen kissing Duncan, this ultimately proves to be beneficial, as the two are able to vent out their frustrations and renew their friendship, allegedly for good. The events of the episode cause them to get along unusually well in You Regatta Be Kidding Me, as the two work together in the challenge even though Chris stated only one person could get immunity and they hope that the other wins the competition if they do not.
Gwen is able to get along with Cameron quickly after he switches teams. She is the only one who does not glare at him when he transfers onto the team and, while they work together during No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, their friendship is put under a strain when, in Zeek And Ye Shall Find, "Mike" tricks him into thinking that she couldn't be trusted. Despite her case of claustrophobia working against her during the challenge, she is still able to save Cameron's life after he falls down a hole into the water, working together and letting her eventually win individual immunity for the first time since Wawanakwa Gone Wild!. She and Zoey also become friends after Zoey attempts to calm her down from her claustrophobia and she remains friends with her for the rest of the season. Despite her making and keeping these two friendships, Courtney and her did not last until the end of the season. Although Gwen was upset to hear that Courtney (accidentally) kissed Cameron while dating Scott, due to all the flak she got from her when she did the same to Duncan, it escalated further in Sundae Muddy Sundae. Due to Courtney's aforementioned relationship with Scott, she intends to betray her once there were only three contestants left. After the chart she made outlining these eliminations was exposed by "Mike," Gwen refuses to work together with her and only wants to be friends with her if Courtney votes herself off that night. Whether she follows through with this promise or not is unknown, but even then, Gwen doesn't seem to miss her when she gets eliminated.
As the only veteran left in the final four, Gwen is happy to have accomplished this feat, but she is also left without any allies in The Bold and the Booty-ful. She also fails to get Scott allied with her due to his perception that it was her fault that him and Courtney were done for good. She is tasked to find a painting of Chris in his cottage, but her progress is slowed down substantially by "Mike" and the painting she finds she finds has a smear on it, causing her to use bear feces in order to get the correct shade of brown. This disgusts Chris and causes her to get disqualified, but she returns for the finale as one of Zoey's helpers. While she helped Zoey get across the first moat, Mal throws her off of the second moat in order to not let her help Zoey any further. While she isn't of any help to Zoey later on, she does at least manage to hit Heather in the head with a stick, which is something she had been wanting to do for four seasons and give Cameron a friendly kiss on the cheek. She is last seen floating away on one of the cabins with Mike, Zoey, and Cameron, telling Mike she never wants to participate in Total Drama again.
