Heather was a camper, and the main antagonist of Total Drama Island, as a member of the Screaming Gophers. She later returned as a cast member in Total Drama Action on the Screaming Gaffers, and was one of the finalists in Total Drama World Tour representing Team Amazon. After making two cameo appearances in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, she returned as a contestant for Total Drama All-Stars, as a member of the Villainous Vultures.
Heather was Total Drama's first villain. Famously manipulative, Heather knows what she wants and exactly how to get it. Her strategic smarts have proven effective, eliminating a record amount of contestants. She competes with her sights solely on the prize money and not on making friends, using others at her advantage and only being kind when she may ultimately be benefited. This makes it difficult to differentiate her classic mean girl ways from genuine heartfelt moments. Such an example is in Total Drama Drama Drama Drama Island, when a tearful Heather tells Harold that she doesn't like "being mean all the time" and it's not fun "being the one everyone hates." Hawaiian Punch, in which she becomes ecstatic at the thought of being the "good guy," confirms that there is at least some truth to her lament. Her troubled childhood past has led up to Heather being the way she is. However, even romance is not enough to tame Heather's desire for victory as shown with her relationship with Alejandro.
Heather comes from a rich family and is the most popular student in White Pines High School, being the head of numerous clubs as well as being the School President. Due to these factors, Heather is extremely arrogant and believes everything in the world belongs to her. Unlike a majority of the campers, Heather joins Total Drama in order to raise her popularity. Much to her dismay, Heather learns that she will be spending her summer in a rundown camp and attempts to leave the competition only to find out she couldn't due to the fine print of her contract. Heather is placed on the Screaming Gophers and immediately gets in a conflict with most of her team mates, mainly Leshawna and Gwen. Heather refuses to jump off the cliff in Not So Happy Campers - Part 2, not wanting to ruin her hair. This leads to an argument between her and Leshawna which culminates in the latter throwing her off the cliff. Heather vows to get revenge on Leshawna but during the final moments of the challenge, she feints apologies to her. When Lindsay questions her motives, Heather simply states that she is trying to make Leshawna to let her insincerely apologizes to her later on so that she would let her guard down, secretly saying that it is important to "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
In order to secure her victory, Heather pulls Lindsay and Beth into an alliance with her in The Big Sleep, under the promise that she will bring them to the final three with her. In reality, she is simply using their naivety in order to further her own goals. During the challenge, Eva accidentally drops her MP3 player, which Heather steals, knowing that Eva would throw a tantrum and turn her teammates against her. The plan works, with Eva trashing the Bass's cabins and get eliminated. With Beth and Lindsay's help, Heather easily takes up leadership over the Gophers, despite being disliked by many. In addition, the two are required to follow all her orders, including doing her chores. Heather however has problem controlling Lindsay's growing attraction to Tyler, and repeatedly scolds her whenever she sees them together. When Lindsay leaves with Tyler for a date during Dodgebrawl, Heather angrily throws a kayak onto Tyler to keep them apart.
Heather's most noted enemy on the island other than Leshawna would be the Goth loner, Gwen. The two had long, complicated rivalry that intensified throughout the series. Gwen is the primary victim of Heather's tormenting, and though the conflict is usually verbal, with Heather calling Gwen "weird Goth girl", they sometimes get physical. Though the two didn't have a good start on their first day, their rivalry begins in Not Quite Famous. After telling Lindsay to distract Gwen, Heather sneaks into the cabin and steals Gwen's diary. During the talent show, Heather would read out the contents of Gwen's diary to the entire world, including of her secret crush on Trent. Her actions disgusts everyone, including Chris and Courtney. After her team loss, Heather knows that she would be the primary target for elimination but is spared by convincing her alliance and bribing Owen with a cake, to vote off Justin instead. Gwen would then get back at Heather by dumping Harold's red ant farm at her during the night. In the next episode, Heather vows to eliminate Gwen the next time they lose until she is calm down by Trent.
As Heather continues to run her alliance like a dictator, Beth slowly comes to realize Heather's true intents and begins to rebel against her. After risking her life to steal a bag of chips for Heather in Paintball Deer Hunter, Beth finally loses her patience. She deliberately disobeys Heather's instructions and eats the chips herself. Later, Beth confronts Heather and quits the alliance, causing a massive paintball fight between them and Leshawna. Watching their fight from afar, the Killer Bass use this opportunity to shoot them, leading to the second consecutive loss for the Gophers. Heather chooses to eliminate Beth for her betrayal but she is spared. Still angry over her betrayal, Heather continues to torment Beth in If You Can't Take The Heat... As before, Heather appoints herself as team leader but her constant bossing eventually make Leshawna snap and lock her in the freezer. When her team loses again, Heather discovers about Beth's Tiki idol that she took during their previous trip to Boney Island and realizes that she is responsible for their losing streak. Because of this, Beth is eliminated much to Heather's satisfaction. With Beth leaving the alliance, Lindsay is the only ally of Heather left in the competition.
For the next few episodes, Heather's suffers from misfortune during the challenges. In Who Can You Trust?, she fails the second part of the challenge she participates in due to Lindsay which lands her in the infirmary. In Basic Straining, she is the among the last three members of her team left during the challenge but quits in order to escape from Owen's gas, only for Owen to fall on her moments after she landed. In X-Treme Torture, Heather volunteers to drive the jet ski for the Bass. Heather tries many attempts to shake Harold off but the latter manage to grab all the flags despite losing his skis. As they slowly approach the finish line, Heather try one final attempt to make sure the Bass didn't win. She attempts to cut the rope Harold is holding onto but a tree branch snags her top and leaves her completely topless. Despite the humiliation, Harold still fails to reach the finish line after being entranced by Heather's breast.
When the teams are divided into boys and girls in Brunch of Disgustingness, Heather attempts to pull Bridgette, the sole female Killer Bass remaining to join her alliance but her attempts are thwarted by Leshawna. Heather tries to act friendly towards Bridgette throughout the episode, including sharing her make-up but ultimately, Bridgette decides to side with Gwen and Leshawna. Soon, the teams are merged and Heather faced a returning foe, Eva. Fortunately for Heather, Eva has not discovered of her actions that lead to Eva's earlier elimination. Heather initially decides to vote for Leshawna but since she has immunity, she decides to vote off Eva again due to her temper.
In Search and Do Not Destroy, Heather has trouble getting her key as it is located inside Chef's freezer, guarded by Chef Hatchet himself. Nevertheless, Heather manage to retrieve her key with Lindsay's help. Later, Heather spots Gwen and Trent sharing a kiss and consider this a start of an alliance. In order to break them up, she enlists Lindsay's help to organize a situation where Gwen would find Heather kissing Trent on the Dock of Shame after telling numerous lies to Trent about Gwen. This incident break Gwen's heart and Leshawna would rally the others to vote off either Heather or Trent. Since Heather had invincibility, Trent is eliminated instead.
Lindsay continues to help Heather in many of the post-merge challenges and still believes that Heather is her friend. Heather however continue to use Lindsay to ensure her own safety. In Hide and Be Sneaky, although Lindsay is the one who discovers DJ and Owen's hiding place, Heather claims invincibility for herself and refuse to share with her. In That's Off the Chain!, Heather is able to trick Lindsay into building a fast bicycle for her and during the race, she instructs her to clear a path through the obstacle courses, allowing Heather to reach the finish line first with Lindsay coming in second. However, since they are the only contestants to cross the finish line, Lindsay is technically the last one to cross and is eliminated. Heather finally reveals she does not care for Lindsay, never intending to keep her promise and was using her the entire time. This revelation causes Lindsay to snap, giving Heather a hate speech including a string of expletives, along with a middle finger gesture.
With Lindsay's elimination, Heather has lost all her allies and struggles in all subsequent challenges. By ignoring Gwen's advice in Hook, Line, and Screamer, she is easily captured by Chef while she is about to take a shower. In Wawanakwa Gone Wild!, she had the hardest animal to capture, a bear, as oppose to the others who had to capture small animals. Duncan offers to help her but she initially refuses. By the end of the challenge, not only she fails to complete her challenge, she is shot by Izzy with a tranquilizer dart, putting her in a state of paralysis for the remainder of the episode. She is partnered with Owen in Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon, who is probably the only person left on the island who still treats her nicely but after insulting Izzy in front of him, Owen snaps at her. Despite these disadvantages, Heather manage to survive to the final four due to others being eliminated as a result of poor performance in challenges, being too popular and accidentally been voted off by the eliminated campers and a parrot.
Heather and Gwen continue to be on each others throat in Haute Camp-ture, with Duncan getting caught in between. The three of them struggle to survive on a deserted island together until Owen returns and convince them to get along. In Are We There Yeti?, Heather reluctantly teams up with Gwen in order to defeat Owen and Duncan. Using deceptive tactics, such as pretending to be weak, helpless girls, Heather and Gwen win invincibility and Duncan is voted off. Unfortunately for Heather, her luck runs out in I Triple Dog Dare You! as Gwen and Owen teams up in order to eliminate her by forcing her to compete in every challenges they throw at her. Heather endures them all, until she is faced with a challenge given by Lindsay. At first, Heather believes that Lindsay would not be smart enough to come up with a tough challenge, only for her to realize that she is required to get her head shaved off by Chef. Heather is torn between what to decide on as Chef inches closer with the razor blade, and kicks it out of Chef's hands before making a decision. The razor blade ends up landing on top of Heather and shaves most of her hair off anyway, leaving Heather's head a disfigured mess. Since she does not actually accept the dare, Heather is then eliminated. Frustrated over her defeat, Heather leaves the island and threatens to sue the show.
Now wearing a wig to cover her bald head, Heather chose to support Owen in finale. Heather would go through great lengths to ensure Gwen doesn't win though most of her attempts would ended up backfired including the laxative-laced muffin that she gave to Gwen before the challenge which Owen ate. Heather's pride is lost when Leshawna takes matters into her own hands and locks Heather in the confessional after Owen uses it and she remains there even after one of the finalist has reached the finish line. As the boys prepare to throw Chef into the lake after doing the same to Chris earlier, Heather and Gwen had a friendly banter with each other which ended with Gwen teasing Heather of her foul stench.
In Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island, Heather's past actions throughout the season has made everyone refuse to ally with her and she resorts to forming a team with Harold. After retrieving the briefcase, Heather betrays Harold and uses the hang-glider he built to fly to the Dock of Shame but it falls apart and sends Heather head-first into a beaver dam. In the process, the case falls out of her hands and into the water. Later, a beaten-up Heather, having finally escaped the angry beavers, encounters Harold yet again, as he pulls up alongside her by the river in a canoe. She at first doesn't want to be with him, as she is angry at her misfortune throughout the episode. But Harold is determined to help her, thus having a heart-to-heart talk with her to which Harold seems to understand. Harold forgives Heather and allows her to join him again, even offering to be her friend once they are done. However, Heather stares at the camera with a mean demeanor look on her face, showing that she is lying again. In the end, the two ended up in the lake with several other contestants and are qualify for the next season.
Heather continues to suffer from the consequences of her antagonistic behavior in the previous season. She is still hated by the majority of the cast, with virtually nobody trusting her, with the only exception being Harold. In Monster Cash, she finds that none of the girls want to share a bunk with her, though due to some math complications, Heather ends up having a bunk bed all to herself; the top and bottom. As her hair hasn't grown back after the events of I Triple Dog Dare You!, Heather continues to wear a wig throughout the season. After being shot by Chef Hatchet shot her with his paintball gun in Alien Resurr-eggtion, her wig falls off and falls through a grating, making it impossible to retrieve. As a result, Heather spends the majority of the seasons bald, persistently trying to find hair. Despite these complications, Heather is determined to work herself back to the top and win the money this time, while taking revenge on all her enemies.
Heather's conflict with Gwen and Leshawna continues, while Lindsay and Beth remain untrusting of her. During team selection, Gwen is advised by Leshawna to pick her rival for her team, being told to "keep your enemies closer." Compared to last season, Heather is more cooperative with her teammates and no longer fights over the team's leadership, allowing either Gwen or Duncan to fill the position. In The Chefshank Redemption, Heather is the first to notice that Gwen has been throwing challenges for the Killer Grips, although none of her teammates believe her. After their team loses for the first time, Heather votes for Gwen alongside Harold and Leshawna, causing her elimination that night. Heather is thrilled that her mortal enemy is finally eliminated, and pushes Chris off the podium in order to mock Gwen as she takes the Walk of Shame.

Furious over this, Heather and Duncan holds a grudge against Leshawna for several episodes, during which they intentionally leave her inside a vault in Ocean's Eight - Or Nine as payback.
After Courtney debuts on the season, Heather becomes obsessed with stealing a piece of her hair during One Million Bucks, B.C., due to believing Courtney's hair is the most suitable out of all the girls, to cover her bald head. Throughout the episode, Heather persistently attempts to acquire Courtney's hair using a pair of scissors, and finally does so without her noticing. However, Chris orders an intern to take it back in order to prevent another lawsuit. Heather has no choice but to cover her head with a red colored caveman wig. In both One Million Bucks, B.C. and Million Dollar Babies, Heather is paired with Beth, but loses both times. In the latter episode, Heather discovers that Leshawna had been bad mouthing the castmates during her trip to the spa. Rather than getting mad like the others, surprisingly Heather is the only person who is understanding of her. After the Gaffers lost, Heather is voted off by Duncan and Harold.

However, after Chef interrupts her confessional several times, she storms off.

She tries to interact with Sierra a lot during the episode, she asks her opinion in which way they should go to reach the exit of the pyramid. She teams up with Cody and Sierra to get through the pyramid. At some point in the challenge, Sierra accidentally steps in a trap that shoots some spears at them, to which Heather notices and pushes Sierra down, along with herself. Sierra apologizes and Heather, trying to not lose control, accepts her apology with a fake smile.

Also, she's the first one to get on the camel and starts to boss her team remembering that it's a race in order to make them get ready faster. Cody is humiliated by her after he tries to impress Gwen. Heather begins to question herself about Alejandro, saying "he is just so... perfect," but quickly corrects herself.

Courtney and Gwen both suspect that her sneaking has something to do with Alejandro, and both girls mock her and accuse her of having a crush on him. After Courtney makes fun of her "dried up, black little heart" lighting up with love, Heather assures her that she does not have a crush on Alejandro, and explains why she is crawling in the vents. She continues on in the vent system, eventually reaching the economy section, where DJ admits that he wants to lose. Shocked, she falls out of the vent in front of everyone, nervously claiming that she just dropped her pen. When the plane crashes and the contestants are tossed out, she grips onto a cushion on one of the first class cabin's sofas, forcing Chef to pull her off the sofa and toss her in the water with the cushion. Heather then rides on the cushion outside on the water, and when she sees DJ almost drowning, she gives it to DJ and then asks for an alliance. Alejandro mocks her strategy, stating that it would have been wiser to give DJ the cushion if he agreed to an alliance in the first place.

She then quickly demands for the tape which hinted that she liked him, angrily pulling on the confessional's camera and wondering how to open it. After Chris explains that the contestants must paddle to the East Coast of Canada with boats, Courtney suggests to Team Amazon that they should swim in a "V-Formation," as they'll be faster. Heather agrees, and asks if there are any objections. Gwen is shocked that Heather doesn't have an objection, but Heather states that the only objection she has is to losing. Before all the teams get in their boats, Courtney announces that she'll be at the front of the boat. Heather disagrees, stating that she should get point, though Courtney reminds her that she is a C.I.T., to which Heather angrily says that Courtney is more like a "B-I-T-C," before being cut off by Gwen. Once all the teams get in their boats, Heather abandons her team to help DJ to the surface, and leaves Courtney in charge of Team Amazon. Despite his best efforts, she winds up tricking him into singing a part in Sea Shanty Mix and winning the first challenge for him. When she finds out she has to deal with clams due to coming in last place, she is quickly disgusted and tries to worm her way out of it, as her team is not here. Chris tells her she has to do it by herself, which aggravates her. During the challenge, she manages to get DJ to drink the vinegar. This leads to DJ winning the first part of the second challenge. She also got DJ to win the second part indirectly. Finally, Heather tries to get DJ to win the third part, but DJ doesn't listen to her until Alejandro convinces him to kiss the fish. He does so, and ties with Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot. The rest of Team Amazon show up, discovering that they are in dead last place. Heather angrily questions where Courtney and the rest of Team Amazon were, and just when Courtney is about to blame it on herself, Gwen sticks up for her and states that it was her fault. Heather frustratedly says that she will vote Gwen off, though Chris announces that it was actually a reward challenge, causing Heather to get angry.

Her team ends up winning the challenge, and tells DJ that he had allied with the wrong team, and that he should have aligned with her team instead.
In I See London..., Heather is annoyed that she has to sit back in the economy class with Team Chris, and is unsure why they are back there since they had won in Jamaica. Heather then becomes annoyed that Courtney and Gwen are bonding over bird poop. She wonders if she is the only sane one left, and confirms it after seeing Sierra typing on her pizza box, which she referred to as a computer. On the double-decker bus in London, she asks about Alejandro, who was kidnapped. Heather is worried about Alejandro's safety, but plays it off around the others. Heather spends most of the time being ignored or made fun of by Gwen and Courtney.

In The EX-Files, Heather is happy that everyone's anger is now directed towards Gwen, instead of her, stating she never felt so safe and after this she thanked Gwen, in the confessional. When trying to find a way to get in the Area 51, a lizard climbs onto Heather's leg, which she initially thinks is Cody, but after noticing it's a reptile, all of Team Amazon scream and run away from it. But this leads them to get stuck in a mine field. Heather sings "Boyfriend Kisser" with Courtney and they got out of the mine field thanks to Cody using his candy and exploding the mines before they step into them. She also goes searching for an alien artifact with Courtney. She gets her head caught in some sort of alien portal machine, and Courtney pulls her out. Heather asks Courtney suspiciously why she broke the portal Heather got her head stuck in, unaware that Courtney was trying to make them lose. Back on the plane, Heather tells Courtney that they need to concentrate on getting the guys eliminated.
As Gwen and Courtney try to get rid of each other in Picnic at Hanging Dork, Heather is left as the decisive vote between both sides (Cody and Gwen against Sierra and Courtney). First, Courtney tries to get Heather to her side, knowing her dislike for Gwen is as intense as hers. Heather only agrees if Courtney doesn't throw away the next challenge just to get Gwen eliminated. However, Heather crossed her fingers in the dark, since she didn't trust Courtney's word either. When Alejandro starts flirting with Courtney (according to the guys' plan), Heather instantly suspects about Alejandro's actions and figures out he's drawing a game plan again, so she starts flirting with Duncan as a counter attack. During the emu race, Heather noticed Courtney was going slowly on purpose. She reached the top of her tolerance when Courtney asks her if she didn't have a problem with her flirting with Alejandro. After Heather denies having interest on him, Courtney starts to respond with eager to him, which infuriates Heather and makes her decide to turn against Courtney. Heather again flirts with Duncan, causing Alejandro and Gwen to be jealous (although Alejandro denies believing it since Heather doesn't have passion for false flirting, but starts to doubt shortly after). During the second part of the challenge, Heather responds immediately that she isn't into Duncan, even before Gwen could actually ask, so then Gwen asks her about joining the alliance, to which Heather doesn't think twice and agrees. Heather is the lead singer of Shear the Sheep, with the other members of Team Amazon playing instruments. She fails to catch sheep at the last track and kept bouncing over the cliff. After Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot wins, Courtney asks if she still has Heather's help, to which she nods, but her look says the opposite. Heather votes for Courtney and the result ends in tie-breaker, which Courtney wins against Gwen.
In Sweden Sour, Heather becomes jealous of Courtney and Alejandro's flirting. She decided to flirt with Duncan to get Alejandro jealous. She fights with Courtney at the beginning of the building challenge, and furiously chases Cody with a mallet when she sees that he used their materials to build a giant wooden statue of Gwen's head. In the end, she agrees with Cody and Sierra to vote against Courtney and is angry when Chris says it was a reward challenge.
In Aftermath Aftermayhem, Beth's challenge is to make a haiku out of one of Heather's qualities. After thinking a lot and struggling to find any good qualities about her, Beth finally says Heather has ten toes and is fast in water.
In Niagara Brawls, in the "arranged marriage challenge," after Sierra tries to reject Alejandro for winning him as her "husband,” Heather goes up to him and helps him off the ground, pairing herself with Alejandro while they both smile at each other as they walk off. In the first part of the challenge, while Alejandro tries to give Heather directions to get to her wedding dress, Heather complains, but eventually gets there. Once she does, Alejandro calls her "Chica" and she complains that he did not give her good directions as he was not quite specific enough. After Alejandro helps Courtney get to her wedding dress, Heather complains in the confessional that Alejandro is supposed to only have one bride, meaning herself with tons of jealousy. When Chris announces that Heather and Alejandro get a head start in the next challenge, Alejandro calls her "Mrs. Alejandro," while Heather calls him "Mr. Heather" in return. As they were about to cross the tight rope, Alejandro calls Heather his "better half" and Heather goes into his arms bridal style with a satisfying smile. Halfway across the rope, Heather and Alejandro fight on who to vote off next and she causes them to fall and lose the challenge, although Alejandro did it on purpose, when he moved his leg off the rope.In Chinese Fake-Out, she decides to try and form an alliance with Cody, by getting rid of Sierra. She starts by advising him to stop being so nice to her so that she stops obsessing over him. In the race up and along the Great Wall, she tries to share the rickshaw with Cody, but Blaineley beats her out. She tries to grab the rest of the transport items, ending up with the wooden sandals. She makes it over the finish line, second-last to finish. In the food challenge, she was eliminated second, after failing to finish the live grub-worms faster than the others, throwing up on Chris's face upon him eliminating her. She spots the cheating of both Blaineley and Alejandro and confronts everyone about it, forcing both Alejandro and Blaineley to compete fairly, which makes them both vomit.

Part-way through the challenge, one of Sierra's condor eggs hatches in Heather's hand, revealing a baby condor that resembles Cody. The condor forms a motherly bond to Heather, which makes Sierra jealous. For most of the second half, Cody Jr. sits in Heather's hair, which she isn't happy about. Although, this turns out to be a good thing, as it allows her to win the challenge. Sadly, she does get knocked off the nest, knocking one of the giant heads over. She "strategically" chooses Alejandro to join her in first class, due to Sierra still being in the game.
In Awwwwww, Drumheller, she spends most of the episode running from Sierra, who is mad at her due to Alejandro's manipulation. She builds a "Chris-ceratops" in an attempt to suck up to the host, but the winner ends up being determined through contestant voting. Although she tried to vote for Cody's first, the electric chair forced her to truthfully pick the dinosaur she actually preferred: Sierra's dinosaur. She explains her choice, admitting that she's a secret glitter-paste fan. For coming in second, she wins a pickaxe and shifting tray to search for the hidden oil barrels. She finds a barrel due to throwing her axe and piercing it. Before she could dig it up, though, a boulder traps her in her ditch. After much debate, Alejandro decides to free her in exchange for his safety.

In Hawaiian Punch, Heather is annoyed that no one in the peanut gallery supports her, and confronts them about it. She then takes this back, realizing that if there is a vote, she would want to be on everyone's good side. She is forced to enter a booth that rains golf balls in order to pick a tie-breaker challenge for Alejandro and Cody. She knocks a golf ball out of the booth that hits Tyler in the head, knocking him unconscious. She then leaves the booth and coughs up a golf ball she had accidentally swallowed. The challenge on the golf ball is revealed to be a fire dance challenge, which ends up angering Heather because she is tied to a pole. She then distracts Cody so he will lose the challenge, because she thinks that she might win a vote against Alejandro. Cody loses and she tells a shocked Alejandro that he just eliminated the crowd favorite. However, she is angered when Chris tells her that there will be no vote and that there will be a challenge instead. She then asks Chris what the peanut gallery's role in this is, to which he responds by allowing her and Alejandro to pick two people to help them out with the challenge. Cody volunteers to help her, and then Harold volunteers too because Cody did. Near the end of the episode, Alejandro was just about to win, when Heather showed up and fell to the ground, crying that she was about to lose. Alejandro stops to go over to her and reveal that he has feelings for her. They then kissed, but Heather kneed him in the groin.
In Heather's ending, after knocking Alejandro off the volcano, she accepts the million dollars from Chris. However, Ezekiel appears behind her and steals the million dollars from her, though he fell down the volcano. She is then seen running away from the island and does not laugh when Chris's boat sinks. After everyone swims away, Heather rises from the water and asks if she still gets the million dollars. She starts swimming swiftly as a large flaming boulder flies towards her.
In Alejandro's ending, after knocking Alejandro down the volcano on an ice cube, Heather proudly threw the dummy made out of driftwood and pineapples into the volcano.

In Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon, Heather is first reintroduced at the beginning of the episode, disembarking from the massive blimp as Chris introduces her to the new cast. She seems dissatisfied when first meeting Zoey, labeling her as a "loser" and refusing to talk to her. She is promptly used to demonstrate the challenge for the day; flying through several flaming hoops, much to her dismay, before she crashes into the ground.
Later, as the cast puts the finishing touches on their vehicles, Heather uses one of Chris's Gemmies to knock both Chris and Chef out of the blimp that they are in, then hijacks it and steals the million-dollar case claiming that it was rightfully hers. Chris is visibly irritated, and changes the next part of the challenge to stopping Heather and saving the case. The contestants' attacks by throwing eggs at the blimp prove to be completely useless, and Heather retaliates by throwing more golden statuettes out the blimp at the contestants.
Eventually, Lightning crashes through the blimp's front windows and begins fighting Heather for the briefcase. Heather fakes a surrender at first, but quickly starts beating Lightning down with the case. The two begin to struggle for the case, but Lightning eventually lets it go, since he saw Cameron's rocket heading straight for them.

Throughout the episode, she is annoyed by the Drama Machine that is also on her team whenever it tries to get close to her.

Upon finding out that Alejandro is in the robot suit, Heather screams in horror. With his body finally recovered, their love to hate relationship continues where it left off at the finale of Total Drama World Tour.
Because of her overbearing and controlling personality, Heather immediately bumps heads with fellow teammate; Jo who also wanted to take charge of the team. Things between the two get more tumultuous in Evil Dread, when they incessantly argue about who should be the team leader, and how they should maneuver the challenge. It eventually gets physical between them when Heather drops one of their puzzle piece on Jo's foot, who retaliates by pushing Heather into the crab pit. After their team loss, the two spend the night arguing about their loss, and blaming one another for losing the challenge in Saving Private Leechball. Heather grows to be even more displeased with Jo because their team would have benefited from Lightning in the leech shooting challenge. Meanwhile, in order to secure her own safety, Heather decides to pull her long time rival, Gwen into forming an alliance with her before either Jo or Alejandro could, knowing that "where Gwen goes, Duncan follows." In the end, their team loss again and Heather is in the bottom two with Jo but she is ultimately declare safe while Jo is eliminated.
Things have not been any easier, and any less complicated with Alejandro during her duration in the season. Both are irritated that the other did not contact them between seasons, and she starts to feel bad when she believes that her past actions have made his legs paralysed. They would continue to fight over little things, but would unintentionally show small signs of affection and attraction for the next few episodes. He deems her the official leader of the team in Food Fright, which annoys their new teammate Courtney, and Heather takes the role without any issue. She would be shocked at Alejandro's irritation with her behavior in Moon Madness, calling her "typical", which she soon vent about in the confessional. When the Blue Harvest Moon appears, Heather becomes her polar opposite, a bubbly, kind, and happy-go-lucky person who hugs the animals and cares about everyone. Her sudden change in personality creeps her teammates. However, it turns out that she is only pretending to be under the effects of the moon in order to play with Alejandro's mind. Once the moon returns to normal, Heather stops her act and returns to her usual mean self.
Upon seeing that Gwen easily bonded with their new teammate, Cameron, Heather realizes that her and Alejandro are the odd ones out, and offers him to join a temporary alliance in No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition, which he agrees to. This however, turns out to be it's actually just a ploy to gain his trust and to get him eliminated, since she still does not trust him. As the challenge proceeds, she convinces her team to vote him off, lying that he is trying to vote off either Scott or Cameron. At one point, Heather discovers the McLean-Brand Chris Head and hid it behind a rock until the challenge is over. After the challenge ends, Heather soon returns to get her idol, only to find out that it is gone and immediately accuse Chris for stealing it. Regardless, Heather believes with everyone's help, Alejandro's elimination is guaranteed. However, Alejandro not only reveals to her that his legs had recovered long ago, he is the one who took the Idol. Since Alejandro is immune, his sole vote against Heather is the only one that counts, devastating Heather. As Heather is placed into the Flush of Shame, Alejandro suggest that they should resume their relationship but Heather rejects him and push him off the giant toilet before she is flushed. The exclusive clip shows that Heather ended up in the Yukon and was attacked by a polar bear, after she ends up being stuck to a pole similar to Bridgette.
In the season finale, The Final Wreck-ening, Heather, along with Alejandro, is chosen by Mal to help him win the finale against Zoey. It turns out that after her and Alejandro's respective eliminations, they have finally become a couple and spend most of their time making out, much to the disgust of Chris. At one point, Mal attempts to throw Heather into the toxic waste but is stopped by Alejandro, who comes up with an alternate plan. She and Alejandro finally get across using a canoe. Near the end, Chris became frustrated with all the contestants kissing each other in some way and proclaims that anyone is capable of winning the million dollars if they pull out the sword first. Upon hearing this, Heather and Alejandro start fighting again, not wanting to lose a chance to get the prize money. After laughing at Alejandro being chased by Fang, Heather is hit in the head by Gwen. Eventually, either one of the original finalists still manages to pull the sword out first, frustrating Heather. However, pulling out the sword also leads to the destruction of the island.
