Due to both of them being misfit campers in Total Drama Island, Izzy and Owen quickly bonded. They shared similar interests and opinions. Due to Izzy's early elimination in Up the Creek, the two did not get in as much romantic interactions as other relationships, until her return. While their romantic relationship is often inconsistent from episode to episode, as well as Izzy's personality in general, several references have been made to their status as a couple (mostly from Owen) well after they broke the platonic barrier in Hook, Line, and Screamer. As of the first season's special, they seemed to still be "very well together" (through Owen's eyes, mainly), going as far as Owen admitting he loves her.
As of Total Drama Action, Owen immediately realizes and admits his feelings for Izzy during one of the earlier episodes. However, due to Izzy having yet another early elimination and the appearance of her new alias Kaleidoscope, the relationship doesn't prosper that well. However, just like in Total Drama Island, Izzy returned once more, causing Owen to become overjoyed and the relationship to resume. This was very short-lived, as Izzy was eliminated again a short time afterwards.
Their relationship was surprisingly consistent throughout Total Drama World Tour, due to both competing once again, with several hints in numerous episodes of the season. However, by Jamaica Me Sweat, Owen was starting to have second thoughts about their relationship due to the pain she was causing him recently, both physical and mental. He made several unsuccessful attempts to break up with her, resulting in more injuries to the both of them. Eventually, however, it was Izzy who broke up with Owen first, due to her newfound intelligence after a freak head injury, in which she described them as "incompatible." Owen immediately began to long for Izzy's romantic advances, and openly expressed his sorrow to his friend, Gwen in the song Oh My Izzy. As of now, their relationship is still broken up, even though Izzy has returned to her usual crazy self in Aftermath Revenge of the Telethon.
After Izzy arrives at the island, she talks rapidly about paper maché, lunch and if she is at a summer camp. Owen quickly agrees with the lunch question stating that it is a "good call." This is their first time interacting on the island and one of the first times the two have interaction with anyone else on the show.
When Owen is afraid of leaping off the cliff into the lake, Izzy in particular enthusiastically yells at him to "Do it!," and shows delight when he accomplishes the feat.
The challenge of the day was a talent contest. When Owen demonstrates his ability to burp the alphabet, Izzy merely rolls her eyes up, not quite showing the same disgust as the other females on the Screaming Gophers. As Izzy showed off her talent, "The Dance of the Rattlesnake," which seemingly has hypnotic powers, she focused exclusively on Owen. As she performed this dance, Izzy maintained eyes contact with Owen the entire time. This seemed to greatly flatter Owen as he remarked on how "she's good" to Trent. This is the first clear sign of an attraction between the two.
As they start the challenge, Owen talks to Izzy about how it would be funny if they made bear sounds and a bear showed up. Izzy comments on how it would be funny and he starts roaring like a bear. Izzy was appreciative of Owen's fishing skills, and was the only camper not appalled by the shark-bite on his butt, stating that it was "awesome." When she went missing Owen was very worried and started shouting to find her. He was even entertained by her convincing prank. The two spoke to each other about their bad sleep in the morning before Heather yelled at them for their actions the previous night; Owen for his exaggerated stories of bear hunting, and Izzy for dressing up as a bear to scare everyone for fun. As the Screaming Gophers enjoy their reward in the hot-tub, Owen asks her for some of her "Chocodiles," and it becomes clear the two have become good friends.
Coincidentally, Owen and Izzy are sharing the same fear: being in an airplane. Like all of the other campers, they have to face their fears head-on and overcome them to give their team the win. Though they were terrified (and rightfully so, as the airplane they were in was badly damaged to begin with), Owen and Izzy survived the entire plane ride and scored two points for the Screaming Gophers. When they both got out of the plane, full with relief, they both kissed the ground multiple times.
The girls found out about the guys' alliance. Knowing this male alliance aimed to pick off the girls one by one, they decided to vote as a group. Of the six girls remaining, Gwen, Leshawna and Bridgette wanted to vote off Duncan, while Heather and Lindsay wanted to vote off Owen. Heather attempted to convince Izzy to vote with her and Lindsay, but Izzy clearly hesitated, saying he was the nicest guy she knew on the island (who would even play canasta with her). Heather pressured her to join them, regardless of the fact Leshawna and even Lindsay stated she would just dump Izzy afterwards. This is one of the first direct signs of the two's relationship.Chris and Chef Hatchet abandoning the island on the boat of losers, having left behind a fake newspaper reporting that a psycho-killer was on the loose. Gwen took charge of the survival mission, but before the group could arrive at the campfire, Izzy dragged Owen off to walk in the woods together (in the dead of night). Despite the spooky atmosphere, Owen and Izzy had a casual conversation in which they referred to themselves (and each other) in third person. Izzy was notably impressed with Owen's accomplishment of eating 200 hot dogs in an eating contest. Suddenly, while Izzy was piggyback-riding on Owen and drummed on his head, Owen felt that something was wrong. Owen then remembers that the elements of the horror movie they just watched (a couple alone in the woods, getting killed by the psycho killer after making out), realizing that he and Izzy are emulating the exact same scenario. Izzy then points out that they are not making out. Owen feels awkward until she asks if Owen would like to make out with her. Throwing caution to the wind, Owen agrees happily, and Izzy pulls Owen behind a bush as they begin to make out. Shortly after, the The Killer finds the couple and the chase is on. Even after Izzy followed Owen through a series of painful landings off a cliff to rejoin him, Owen thoughtlessly sacrificed Izzy to The Killer while he used the opportunity to run for his life. As a result, Izzy was caught by The Killer, who simply turned out to be Chef in disguise. Owen coincidentally found the hiding base of Chris and Chef after running for a long time, and Izzy was taken to the same place where they are the first people to learn about the challenge of surviving a "real-life scary movie,” which they both failed. On the positive side, they had the privilege of watching the other campers succeed or fail surviving the same scenario. However, Izzy remained bitter about the fact that Owen selfishly left her for dead before realizing the situation was a hoax. This was something Izzy would not easily forget, she even punched him for attempting to flirt with her instead of apologizing.
The opening scene is Owen trying to appeal to Izzy by giving her a bouquet of wildflowers. Izzy, however, was not as easily swayed as she reminded him exactly of what he did to her in the previous episode, to which Owen assured her he would never do again, though Izzy seemed to remain unconvinced. They did not have any more time to resolve their problem in this episode, as the rest of it was dedicated to each camper trapping their assigned animal and bringing it to a cage (unharmed). Izzy and Heather were the only ones who failed to capture their animal, and because Izzy accidentally shot Heather with a tranquilizer gun (because Heather was disguised as a deer; the animal Izzy was assigned to capture), she ended up being the one eliminated in this episode. Owen offers Izzy a make-out session to cushion the blow before she disappears in a poof of smoke, disregarding the offer. The status of their relationship is unknown until the series finale, where they are reunited.confessional, Owen cussed at Heather to her face for all of the horrible things she said about Izzy - it was a memorable breaking point for Owen, as he was always known as the happy-go-lucky camper who never had a bad thing to say about anybody until this episode. The blow-up even impressed Heather, but she warned him never to do it again. After this, there was another Confessional stall segment that showed Owen making out with one of the carved wooden heads of Izzy, proving that he still had feelings for her and regretted what he had done to her in the past.
Owen is excited to get a dare from Izzy, and tells her to bring it. The dare is to give a sleeping bear a purple-nurple. Owen performs the dare himself, and is attacked by the bear.
In the season finale, it seemed that Izzy had forgiven Owen seeing as she was a huge part in why Owen ultimately won in the end. She was on Owen's side from the very beginning, including before he bribed people to his side. She, along with Lindsay, was one of the few people to helping him throughout the challenge. When Owen was running she began cheering for him and commanding him to run. Owen admits he appreciates the support, but was slightly frightened by her. Izzy and Lindsay both find a batch of brownies and an electric fan in order to tempt Owen to run faster by the smell. With this, he passes by Gwen and officially wins the 100,000 dollars. Owen hugged and kissed Izzy repeatedly during the celebration, which is indicative that Izzy had forgiven Owen after all and gave him another chance at having a relationship.
Izzy, Owen, and Eva were all seen dancing and eating together in the after-show celebration at Playa Des Losers. After eating ninety-seven marshmallows, Izzy lets out a monstrous belch, Owen, star-struck, fell to his knees and took Izzy's hand, proclaiming his love for her. Izzy at first seemed shocked, only to just as quickly recover and return with some hot dogs. Izzy's reaction is vague at best; it is not certain whether or not she was put off and/or grossed out by Owen's proclamation of love or if she was merely suffering from indigestion.
In the confessional stall, Owen reaffirms his love for Izzy, rhetorically asking how he could not love a woman who "can barf like a guy and come back for more.” However, that is the extent of their interaction throughout the hour-long special, as Izzy chooses to team up with Noah and Eva instead of Owen for the search for the briefcase containing one million dollars, and likewise, Owen chooses to team up with Tyler, Cody, and DJ. After a series of chaotic events, both Owen and Izzy tied with twelve other campers in the search for the case, meaning the two of them were eligible to move on to Total Drama Action and compete for the million dollars again in season two.
Izzy refuses to ride with the other castmates until they referred to her by her new "name," Kaleidoscope (or E-Scope for short). Owen yells for Izzy to hurry up and join the others, but then remembers Izzy's unofficial name change and manages to get her to join the group when he calls her Kaleidoscope. When they are being chased by the gigantic animatronic monster (controlled by Chef), Owen screams for Izzy to duck, only for her to misunderstand the warning and thinking of it as a Duck, Duck, Goose game. This causes her to be the first person captured by the monster. Later on, it is revealed that she went on a romantic date with the monster, which leads to Owen venting his frustration and jealousy in the new Confessional make-up room. He says he still finds Izzy amazing and loves her, but is unsure to what extent he loves her. Owen feels threatened by the "competition" since the monster is taller than him, but after crushing the girls' trailer, Izzy claims that she is "over" the monster.
During their alien mission, the group of Izzy, Owen, Harold, and Heather are ambushed by Chef in an alien costume. Owen swears to Izzy that he will protect her, while putting his hand on her shoulder. Izzy puts her hand on his and smiles, and then flips him over on his back because he did not refer to her as E-Scope, and then demands that he calls her as such.
Owen and Izzy are both recruited into Trent's team: the Killer Grips. Izzy is shown cheering for Owen while riding the trailer as Owen hauls it up the steep prop mountain. However, due to Izzy failing to out-do her opponent Duncan in the final acting challenge, Izzy is the one voted off in this episode. Strangely, there is no displayed response from Owen at all in this scene.
As Izzy returns, Owen seems happy to have her on his team. In the cafeteria, they flirt with each other, with Owen comparing Izzy to chocolate-covered chocolate. Due to the slight flirting at the end of the episode, it looks like Owen and Izzy's relationship has got back to normal for the first time since the beginning of Hook, Line, and Screamer.
Izzy and Owen's flirting continues with Izzy calling Owen the sweetest thing ever and comparing him with a caramel-covered marshmallow. Owen called Izzy magnificent as she ate the pizza without using her hands, but panicked when he noticed she was eating all of his pizza. Nonetheless, in the confessionals, he described Izzy's return as a combination of pizza and Christmas, or "Pizz-Mas,” as he called it. While being overly-excited during the challenge, Izzy bites Owen's arm and Owen seems to take it as a romantic gesture, looking to Izzy suggestively. After Izzy noticed Owen had a sore on his arm, she found out he had a fever and was burning up, 'just like her passionate soul'. Izzy seemed to be the most worried out of everyone when Owen was afflicted with a "life-threatening" disease. When Owen was in the quarantine bubble to prevent him from infecting other castmates, Izzy popped the bubble and ignored the warnings of everyone else of the repercussions of such an action (namely the fact that Owen had gassed up the bubble quite a bit with his own flatulence and thus made the entire room stink when Izzy popped the bubble).
Izzy glared at Owen a number of times due to his gushing over her cuteness, probably because she feels she was not being taken seriously as a contestant. Owen and Izzy read the script and find that they have to make out, and both enthusiastically do so. Beth, the killer, comes up behind them, and "threatens" them with a knife. Owen and Izzy don't even acknowledge her presence until she clears her throat with annoyance. They remember why they are making out, feign screams, and go back to making out. Later on, when their teams are moved to the dining hall, Owen remarks that it isn't so bad considering all the memories he has of the food. Izzy finds leftover cheesecake under the table, and Owen says he thinks he loves her. Unlike the special, Izzy does not have a bad reaction at Owen saying he loved her, and actually smiles about it.
When doing the first challenge of the episode, they compliment each other on how they did in the beginning of the challenge and courteously insist that the other should climb over first before climbing over the wooden wall. Owen climbs over the wall and is hit square in the jaw with Chef's unpublished manifesto, breaking it thoroughly. Izzy is devastated, rushing to him immediately. In the confessional, Izzy reveals that Owen is her buddy, and the only person that truly understands her. She says that without Owen, she has to go back to her imaginary friends, whom she thinks she should have ditched years ago. She is the first person to question how Owen is doing in the hospital. She is the one least amused when Chris tries to make a joke about his condition.
Owen's jaw is still wired shut, but he can still talk to the others, including Izzy. After the failed attempt to get the chest and a conversation with Justin about his fading powers he once had in his good looks, Owen asks Izzy if she thinks he is cute. She says she does, but her new alter ego "Explosivo" only cares about bombs. When Izzy is eliminated, Owen says he will miss her and before they are able to kiss, she is dragged to the Lame-o-sine. Owen looks disappointed at this turn of events. Throughout the episode, Izzy refers to Owen as "Big O.” Owen referred to Izzy as "Iz" when she was eliminated the second time.
Izzy was shown with a big smile on her face when Geoff and Bridgette introduced Owen. She jumped out of her seat and onto his back. She remains there for a short period of time, stealing a drumstick from his tray of food and saying it was "sweet of him to plan something so special." She then leaps back to her seat, where she is silent for the rest of the episode.
When the cast were successfully stopping the Total Drama Dirtbags bus, Owen and Izzy hugged each other. As the bus was falling down a cliff, they talked to each other while floating in mid-air. Both of them qualified to compete on the third season of Total Drama.
Izzy sits on Owen's shoulders when the contestants form a human pyramid, with the two of them at the very top. While they are singing the opening sequence, the two smile at each other. When Chef gets furious and jerks the plane, forcing everyone to fall, Izzy is still on Owen's shoulders when they land.
During the "Pyramid Over Under" challenge, Izzy asks Owen and Noah to dress her up like a mummy. Noah and Owen later end up losing Izzy and coming across Ezekiel as a mummy. Thinking the mummy is Izzy, Owen comments on how she looks really cute as a mummy and attempts to kiss her, only for Noah to scream that it's not Izzy, since he thought it was a real mummy.
Sierra tells Izzy she and Owen could be the "power couple" of the season now that Duncan has left. Izzy replies that Owen is "magic" and when he breathes, it's to the tune of the Canadian National Anthem through his nose. Izzy also compliments Sierra's team because they have Owen on it, calling her "lucky.” Izzy swaps teams with Sierra so Sierra could be with Cody and Izzy with Owen.
When Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot is picking a costume for the second challenge, Izzy wants Owen to be the adorable monster. Then she hugs him and Owen seems happy about it. While they are filming the challenge, Izzy refers to Owen in a monster suit as, "So hot."
Before the first challenge begins, Izzy, along with Lindsay and Leshawna, hug Alejandro for warmth, while Owen hugs Noah after he was declined by Bridgette. Oddly, when they begin the first challenge of jumping across the ice, Owen does not seem upset at Noah calling Izzy "Nutsie." After they pick Owen up, he and Izzy talk about the world's biggest cake being built in Russia, something both are interested in.
While relaxing in first class, Izzy watches Owen sleep and comments on Owen's fear of flying by calling it so "adorable.” Also, Owen is later shown to be impressed by Izzy's moves, when she goes to get their team the baby carriage.
Owen tries to cheer up Tyler about missing Lindsay by trying to explain that he, too, has problems when Izzy is gone for too long, though he speaks like he is unsure. Noah interrupts Owen by talking about how nutty Izzy is. Noah also calls Izzy Owen's girlfriend and Owen shows concern when he does realize Izzy isn't with them, and greater concern when he finds out she is in the cockpit with Chef. During the scavenger hunt, Owen chuckles when he sees Izzy messing around with the American Gothic painting.
Although their relationship is not directly addressed, Alejandro asks Izzy to retrieve Owen in the net, and she calls him "Big O" again as she does so and gets him into the boat. She also hands Owen the lobster she catches, although Alejandro insists he doesn't eat it. During the third challenge, they're both picked to drink the vinegar for the first part of the relay - Owen actually enjoys it, although Izzy is visibly disgusted.
Despite generally good interactions during the season before this episode, Izzy and Owen's relationship comes to an end in this episode.
Early in the episode, after Izzy kicks Owen in the groin, he tells Noah that he's considering breaking up with her, but also says that he still likes her. He then sees her hanging on the oxygen mask and is glad that she's happy. Soon after, the plane starts to crash and he tries to tell her, but she jumps out and the force pulls Owen out after her. Owen lands on the beach quickly, while Izzy lands safely after him because she was wearing a parachute, but unfortunately, land on Owen's groin. A moment afterwards, the plane lands on them and they are sent to medical care. Once he awakes, Owen blames himself for Izzy getting hurt and says that he should never have considered breaking up with her. After he says this, Izzy wakes up and has seemingly become a genius after the impact fixed a blockage in her brain, by testimony of the doctor. She claims to have figured out a formula for time travel, before the military comes to take her "home." The soldiers said they liked Izzy's new smartness, so they took Izzy. Owen then told Izzy he was thinking about breaking-up with her before she leaves, and that he regretted it. Izzy, with her new-found intelligence, then tells him they're not compatible and leaves; as Gwen mentions later, Izzy broke up with him. Owen then sings Oh My Izzy, because of how much he already misses her, with Gwen trying to support him. As of Aftermath: Revenge of the Telethon, it is unknown what their current situation is since the two have not been seen talking since the break up.
- They were both on the same team in the first three seasons, making them the only couple to always be on the same team. However, Izzy had to switch teams twice to achieve this.
- This is the fifth main couple to have broken up (after Harold and Leshawna, Gwen and Trent, Bridgette and Geoff, and Courtney and Duncan), and is currently one out of the six major couples that is currently broken up (Harold and Leshawna, Gwen and Trent, Courtney and Duncan, Duncan and Gwen, and Courtney and Scott being the others) and did not get back together.
- This is also the only broken up couple that has no interactions between the members after their break up.
- This is the first couple from the original cast to have both members make an extra guest appearance in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island with the second being Duncan and Gwen. They are also the first male and female veteran to make a cameo appearance.
- This is the only couple to be eliminated more than once in a single season.
- This is one of two couples of the original cast to appear on Skatoony with the other couple being Harold and Leshawna.
- They and Ezekiel are the only non-competing contestants to make a cameo in Total Drama All-Stars.
