Lindsay was a camper in Total Drama Island, as a member of the Screaming Gophers. She later returned as a castmate in Total Drama Action, as a member of the Killer Grips, and participated in Total Drama World Tour, as a member of Team Victory. 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 Runaway Model. She returned as a contestant for Total Drama All-Stars, as a member of the Heroic Hamsters.
Beautiful but not vain, Lindsay's big heart and childlike nature made her one of the most well-liked competitors on the show. Although the other contestants are frequently annoyed by her severe lack of intelligence, Lindsay has been shown to only have pure intentions. A major running gag on the show involves her having problems remembering the name of the others, even if that person is her boyfriend. At times, such as in Dial M for Merger and Get a Clue, she goes beyond this limitation and demonstrates that she has the ability to solve problems, and likes to be called "Her Hotness" as she does so. She shows herself to be an underdog, and hates to be underestimated by her peers, and does her best to defeat them and prove herself. Unfortunately for Lindsay, due to her naive nature, she is often fooled by false-friendships and easily manipulated by the show's antagonists.
In Not So Happy Campers - Part 1, Lindsay is the fifth person to arrive and she immediately displays her lack of intelligence. Examples include forgetting the name of the host twice, fail to use the confessional correctly and mistaking the communal bathrooms as "communion." After everyone arrives, Lindsay is placed on the Screaming Gophers team. As she is unpacking, Lindsay saw a cockroach in her cabin and screams loudly, attracting the attention of the other campers. After several campers fail to crush it, the cockroach is killed by Duncan with an axe. Tyler then approaches Lindsay and tells her that he could done it too, beginning an attraction between the two. Though Lindsay at first refuses to jump off the cliff in Not So Happy Campers - Part 2 as she thought the show was actually a talent contest, she jumps anyway.
In The Big Sleep, Lindsay along with Beth is recruited into Heather's alliance, under the assumption she will bring them to the final three together but unbeknownst to the fact that she is actually using their lack of intelligence to further her own selfish purpose. Lindsay sees Tyler as a potential candidate for the alliance but Heather rejected it. Despite being on different teams, Tyler and Lindsay continue to see each other. After they were both eliminated in Dodgebrawl, they left the court to go on a date despite Heather strongly rejecting their relationship and claiming that she is breaking the rules of their alliance. Lindsay and Tyler go to the beach and talk, until Heather arrives and ends their date after throwing a kayak at Tyler. This doesn't stop Lindsay from seeing Tyler again in Not Quite Famous.
While she is supposed to spy on Gwen under Heather's orders, Lindsay follows Tyler to the communal bathroom instead, where they begin making out. Their attempt to maintain their relationship is unsuccessful, as Lindsay accidentally reveals it to Heather while she is yelling at Bridgette, after the latter falls into Tyler's arms. Their time together is short as Tyler gets eliminated in Phobia Factor. In the confessional, Lindsay bids goodbye to Tyler, but is unable to remember his name. While Lindsay continues to remain loyal to Heather, Beth eventually grows tired of being pushed around by Heather and quits the alliance in Paintball Deer Hunter. Lindsay is caught between their argument and is conflicted on who should she side with. The conflict between Heather and Beth continues in If You Can't Take The Heat... with Leshawna siding with Beth while Lindsay continue to sit on the fence. Although she is mostly on Heather's side, she could not hold back her laughter after Heather accidentally burns her eyebrows off, and helps Leshawna lock Heather in the freezer after refusing to return Heather's makeup bag. After their team loss, Lindsay releases Heather from the freezer but she is not happy at Lindsay for helping Leshawna. Heather also threatens Lindsay that if she ever allies with Leshawna against her again, she will cut of all of her hair.
Lindsay's ineptitude with challenges continues in Who Can You Trust? She loses in both of the challenges she participated due to her carelessness and leaves both her partners injured. In Basic Straining, Lindsay is the first person to drop out from Chef's challenges, unable to continue the first challenge after many grueling hours and quits from exhaustion, resulting in her being yelled at by Chef for failing her team. Things change in X-Treme Torture however when she is chosen for the mud-skiing challenge. Lindsay uses this opportunity to show off her new green bikini, making Heather doubts her chances on winning. Much to everyone's surprise, Lindsay performs well in the challenge, managing to keep her balance and grabbing all the flags with ease. In a final effort to make sure the Gophers did not win, Duncan purposely crashes the jet ski into a rock, launching him into the air and crash into a tree. Despite this, Lindsay is still be able to maintain her balance and crosses the finish line, winning the challenge for her team.
The teams are soon merged though Lindsay continues to serve Heather, this time with the newly-returned Izzy temporarily joining them. In Search and Do Not Destroy, Lindsay helps Heather break Gwen and Trent's relationship by luring Gwen to the docks after writing a fake love letter to her. She then alerts Heather about Gwen's presence. Despite helping her, Lindsay is ashamed at Heather's actions and begin to doubt about her friendship with Heather. She begins to feel that Heather doesn't like her back in Hide and Be Sneaky when Heather refuse to share hiding place with her and later, refuse to share invincibility with her for capturing both DJ and Owen, as Lindsay notified their locations to her. Nevertheless, Lindsay continues to be loyal towards Heather and helps her to vote Owen, though she begins to rethink about the true purpose of their alliance.
In That's Off the Chain!, Lindsay is able to build two proper bikes for herself and Heather, though she equipped Heather's bike with a motor. For the first challenge, Lindsay rode Heather's bike while hers is ridden by Duncan. Both Lindsay and Heather's bike made it to the finish line and are eligible for the next race. Lindsay is able to pass all the obstacles, clearing a path for Heather and is the second one to reach the finish line. However, due to a technicality, Lindsay is eliminated from the challenge, much to her surprise. Lindsay begs Heather to help her but she refuses. It is then that Lindsay realizes that even after everything she had done for her, she is nothing more than a pawn to Heather. Angered at her betrayal, Lindsay starts to curse profusely at Heather while sticking up her middle finger, shocking everyone. As Lindsay walks to the Boat of Losers, she says goodbye to everybody, and promises that Heather will receive her karma somewhere in the future.
With her elimination, Lindsay is reunited with Tyler at Playa Des Losers. At the beginning of Haute Camp-ture, she hangs out with Tyler but couldn't remember what Tyler looked like after kissing him. She also expresses her excitement of being on the cover of "Star Stalker" magazine and spreads the news to the others at the pool. When asked on her opinion on her final five, Lindsay states that she finds Heather mean and Duncan cruel due to his treatment towards deer and trees. Ultimately, she choose to support Gwen, even though she feels that she could be harsh at times. Later, Lindsay accidentally mentions Leshawna's name twice which leads to Leshawna's elimination. Indirectly, Lindsay is responsible for Heather's elimination in I Triple Dog Dare You! as Heather fail to complete Lindsay's dare; having her hair shaved by Chef.
In The Very Last Episode, Really!, Lindsay initially supported Gwen, but begrudgingly switches to Owen's side when he announced he would throw a yacht party if he won. She later assists Izzy in her plan to let Owen win, by using a fan to blow the smell of brownies to attract Owen, in order to make him cross the finish line. Depending on the ending, Lindsay either kisses Tyler when Owen won or cries when Gwen won and had to be comforted by Beth.
In Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island, Lindsay considers Beth as her best friend, due to their hatred for Heather. They pairs up with Ezekiel in the search for the case. At one point, Lindsay and Beth blindly walk right pass the case as they were too busy talking, ignoring Ezekiel's attempt to alert them. They eventually found the case by the river but it is stolen by Courtney and Duncan. Near the end of the episode, they find the case yet again, this time near the washroom. Justin soon appears and tricks Lindsay into giving him the case. Ultimately, Lindsay and Beth manage to reach the docks in time and both are among those who qualifies for Total Drama Action.
Introduced in Monster Cash, Lindsay is impressed with the dressing room confessional and takes pictures of the film lot, excited about the theme of the season. When Lindsay sees that Beth has had her braces removed, she comments on how Beth is beginning to look the part of her new BFF (Best French Friend, according to her). She becomes closer with her friend (and soon to be BFF) Beth and the two are often seen doing many things together. She still hates Heather for betraying her last season. At the end of the episode, she decides to share a bunk with Beth. She is put on the Killer Grips, after being Trent's first choice for being beautiful. As a running gag throughout the season, Lindsay believes that her boyfriend, Tyler, is still present in the competition, often getting his name wrong in the process which causes the cast to be more annoyed with her stupidity, but she eventually gets the message that he is not in the season.
In Alien Resurr-eggtion, Lindsay is disgusted by Izzy putting ketchup on her pancakes during breakfast. During the challenge, she goes to the confessional with Beth and talks about Heather. Lindsay groups with Justin, Beth and Leshawna during the challenge. She is eliminated early in the challenge with the rest of her group. When Geoff and Bridgette are eliminated, Lindsay (and Beth) thinks that their romance is sweet. In Riot On Set, Lindsay is the first castmate picked for the Killer Grips by Trent, who refers to her as "the beautiful Lindsay," which Lindsay is happy to hear. During the team picking, Lindsay asks Trent to pick Tyler for the team, after which she is told that Tyler isn't in the game anymore. As the castmates participate in the challenge and carry the film equipment up, Lindsay immediately helps up Trent when he falls. Later, she helps Izzy with her makeup, taking a long time which Izzy complains about to her. At the Killer Grips's first Gilded Chris Ceremony, Lindsay is in the bottom three with Justin and Izzy, and is declared safe.
Early in the season, she grows a strong attraction to Justin, which gets to the point that she argues with Beth over him in Beach Blanket Bogus, with their friendship temporarily strained, but repaired at the end. Unbeknownst to them, Lindsay and Beth end up being in the exact same position they were in last season. This time, they are now being manipulated by Justin to do his bidding and removing anyone who is a threat to him. During the challenge, Lindsay tries to put on suntan lotion, which freezes and hits Harold. During the challenge, she is knocked off the surfboard by a heavy stage fan. Later, Chris throws her at Duncan when he competes. During the second part of the challenge, Lindsay suggests using things from her handbag (including her magazines) to create the team's sandcastle, helping her team win the second part.
In 3:10 to Crazytown, Lindsay takes on the first challenge with Beth, and they help each other conquer it. During the second part of the challenge, Lindsay ropes Trent, and he gets annoyed, reminding her that they're on the same team. After the Killer Grips lose, Lindsay receives the first Gilded Chris Award at the Gilded Chris Ceremony. After Trent is eliminated and as her team's losing streak continues, Lindsay starts to take a leadership position, gaining confidence and independence rather than being a pawn of another contestant. In the episode following Trent's elimination, The Chefshank Redemption, Justin frequently reminds Lindsay that Gwen will throw the challenge for the Screaming Gaffers, in turn manipulating Lindsay into doing all the work for the team. Lindsay is chosen to compete in the first challenge: eating prison food, prepared by the opposing team. She begins to eat the food which has DJ's spices in it, and immediately loves it. However, she fails due to seeing Gwen puke up Beth's retainer, and then seeing Beth put her puke covered retainer back in her mouth. During the second part of the challenge, Lindsay is reluctant to push the cart for her team, but finally agrees to it after Justin compliments her, calling her legs "foxy." During the race, Lindsay complains about how heavy "Omar" and Justin are. However, in the end, Lindsay wins the race for her team, and consequently the day's challenge, earning their team the win.
In One Flu Over the Cuckoos, Lindsay complains that her "brain is full" before the challenge begins. She performs well in the challenge, and later falls victim to explosive diarrhea due to "Mortatistical Crumples Disease," which turns out to be due to the laxatives in the pizza from the previous night. In The Sand Witch Project, she is bothered by Heather, who calls her and Beth "spineless followers", and shows an x-ray of her spine in the confessional, misunderstanding Heather's words. However, she later tries to prove that she can be a good leader. She is shown to be able to plan out good strategies, such as selecting Beth as their team's killer since she cannot scream, shocking her team with her new and assertive attitude. During the first part of the challenge, the Scream-Off, Lindsay sits in the outhouse and discusses her "accidental tinkle" on camera last season, saying she will not repeat it. Lindsay performs well in the challenge, screaming loudly when Beth enters the outhouse to scare her. However, this is due to her accidentally peeing on camera again. Despite this, she still scores a point for her team. During the second part of the challenge when the Gaffers try to scare the Grips, Lindsay takes charge of her team and nearly wins. In the end, her team still loses and she is in the bottom two with Justin, however it is not revealed who is eliminated due to DJ quitting.
In Masters of Disasters, Lindsay fights with Justin over who gets to use the code during the final challenge, frustrating Izzy. Despite her incompetence in the Disaster movie challenge, Lindsay doesn't give up and takes on the leadership role again in the following episode, under the title "Admiral Lindsay, Her Hotness." During the first part of the challenge, when they have to sky-dive out of a plane, Lindsay shows that she is now immune to Justin's charms, frustrating him and making Lindsay tired of Justin's lazy and entitled attitude. During the second challenge, Lindsay tells Justin to drop the "crazy act" and help the team with the challenge. In the third and final challenge, Lindsay directs her team as "Admiral Lindsay, Her Hotness," with Beth's help. She and Beth devise a plan to win, and Lindsay stays behind to rest while the rest of her team attack. When the Killer Grips lose again and end up at another Gilded Chris Ceremony, Lindsay admits that she performed poorly in the challenge, and states that if she is eliminated, she will blame no one except herself (and Beth). When Izzy is eliminated, Justin reveals in the confessional that he used a new technique to win over Lindsay and have her vote for Izzy instead of him.
Lindsay continues to dominate her team in Ocean's Eight - Or Nine, as she excitedly tries to crack open the safe. However, she has no clue about what the combination could be, and so she tries her Junior High locker combination, saying that it never changed through all the years she was there. When the combination fails, she complains about the lack of "school spirit." As Justin speaks to Chris, Lindsay can be seen jumping on the safe-cracker to try and open it, failing. Later, Lindsay and Beth fail to participate in building the go-karts due to being chased by Owen, who thinks they were food. During the Gilded Chris Ceremony, Lindsay receives the first Gilded Chris Award. When Chris angrily repeats that Courtney is immune, Lindsay confesses that her finger would only touch the Courtney button on the voting device. She is upset to see Owen eliminated, and, along with Justin and Beth, asks for a speech from him. Owen then compliments Lindsay on her "soda-poppy" beauty, which Lindsay is confused by.
The moment Courtney returns, Lindsay immediately clashes with her, as Courtney grows annoyed by Lindsay's stupidity and Lindsay grows angry as Courtney asserts herself as their team captain and the latter's unfair advantages. In One Million Bucks, B.C., Lindsay complains about Courtney's arrival spelling disaster for her new leadership, forming a conflict with her very early. During the first challenge, Courtney berates Lindsay by commenting on her incompetence in challenges. In the confessional, Lindsay displays anger toward Courtney. Then, Lindsay gains the upper hand in this rivalry in this episode by successfully and effortlessly winning the fire-creating challenge for her team, when Courtney could not. However, Lindsay is less competent in the second challenge, when she loses to Leshawna quickly. Despite her loss, Lindsay seems happy due to being covered in tar, which she and Justin find out is good for their skin. In Million Dollar Babies, Lindsay believes that the day's challenge is in fact a gardening challenge at first, and claims that no one can "touch her tomatoes." Lindsay is sorted into the bottom tier through the seeding, and has to fight Harold in a boxing match. Lindsay easily defeats Harold, however Chris declares Harold the winner due to his superior slow-motion skills, and Lindsay having points docked due to eating her marshmallow boxing glove.
In Dial M for Merger, Lindsay is the first castmate to fall into the underground pit. Throughout the first part of the episode, Lindsay continues to act stupidly. When Chris announces the merge, Lindsay is upset to not be on the same team as Beth anymore. In the first part of the challenge, Lindsay loses to Courtney, getting stuck in between the lasers with Beth. However, Lindsay's performance changes in the second part of the challenge, where she succeeds in figuring out which wire to cut, cutting the blue wire due to it being the most "fashion forward." After the challenge, Lindsay talks about tomatoes being good for the skin because of the nutrients it contains, and enjoys the tomato bath (which was set to remove the stink from the stink bombs). In the end, Lindsay wins the reward with Courtney in which they both get to travel to a cheese factory together which ends up being extremely awkward, ending with Courtney throwing herself out of the Lame-o-sine.
In Super Hero-ld, Lindsay brings back some cheese from her reward. While constructing her super hero costume, she complains about Courtney's power trip. She is later unaffected by Pythonicus's efforts to sabotage her. When the castmates model their costumes, Lindsay wins the challenge as Wonder Woman, stating that the name is based off of her "wondering" things a lot, and talks about her invisible jet. Chris gives Lindsay the win, and docks Courtney's points for stepping on Lindsay's invisible jet. Lindsay then offers everyone a ride on it. However, Lindsay's performance in the second part of the challenge is not as impressive, despite ten seconds being docked from her overall time. After the challenge, Lindsay wants to vote off Courtney despite her getting invincibility. In the Gilded Chris Ceremony, Lindsay is the fifth person to receive a Gilded Chris Award, ending up in the bottom three but is safe.
In The Princess Pride, Lindsay creates a "friendship burrito" with Beth for Duncan's contest, and once again shows herself to be immune to Justin's charms. When Chris arrives to pick a princess between the two previous winners, Lindsay fails to become the "princess" due to her feet being too big and her foot not fitting in the glass boot. This causes the others to tease her. During the first part of the challenge, Lindsay breaks the suspension bridge and falls, losing the challenge. Lindsay spectates the rest of the challenge with Chris. Lindsay is shown to be jealous of Courtney being the princess and gets back at her by using the Princess Courtney Dolls as voodoo dolls. During the Gilded Chris Ceremony, Lindsay happily plays with the dolls when they are changed to Princess Beth dolls and is the third castmate to receive a Gilded Chris Award.
In Get a Clue, Lindsay is once again underestimated by everyone when she tries to decipher Chris's message to find him, suggesting that he is buried alive, but her idea gets ignored in favor of Courtney's. In the confessional, Lindsay complains about no one listening to her due to Courtney's arrival. Back at the trailers, Lindsay and Courtney continue to argue. Courtney makes it up to Lindsay by giving her a spa treatment, which is actually just a way to trick Lindsay into getting her DNA sample. Later, Lindsay tries to get Courtney's DNA when she comes out of the shower, but fails. Right afterwards, Beth tricks Lindsay into getting her DNA by asking Lindsay to reach into her spaghetti for her retainer. When they arrive at the train station, Lindsay is upset when she cannot give any DNA samples to Chris. When the challenge begins, Lindsay panics when she sees Chris's "dead body." She begins to tell everyone a story about her cheerleading squad, about a girl who passed out, however the story doesn't solve their problem. Lindsay decides to draw Chris's outline with some lipstick, wondering why that is done.
After stating that she doesn't want to be murdered like Harold, Lindsay begins to dust the train for fingerprints. Lindsay then accuses Duncan of being the murder, stating that it's because Duncan is Courtney's love interest, and has Harold and Beth handcuff him. Harold and Beth then listen to Lindsay's guidance, much to Courtney's chagrin. This leads to the two fighting again. Despite having support from no one, not even Beth, Lindsay manages to solve the crime after finding a napkin with orange fingerprints on it. Through this logic, Lindsay figures out that Courtney is the real murderer, and orders Harold and Beth to "cuff" her. Chris then enters the cart, and declares "Detective Lindsay" the winner, after which Lindsay states that she wants to be called "Detective Lindsay, Her Hotness." Lindsay receives a reward: a night at the movies with a friend. Lindsay decides to take Duncan as an apology for accusing him of the crime, however ends up in an awkward situation with nothing to talk to him about. In the confessional, Lindsay discusses her "strategistical, logical move, because it messed with Courtney's head."
Courtney and Lindsay continue to get on each other nerves in Rock n' Rule. At the start of the episode, Lindsay sings a song off-key which drives Courtney crazy and leads to her scolding Lindsay. When Chris announces that someone is returning to the competition, Lindsay hopes it is Tyler but is happy when it turns out to be her good friend Owen. Lindsay does badly at the first challenge as she gets electrocuted very early on. Despite that, she performs exceptionally well in the second challenge, taking time to pose for the fake paparazzi which everyone else avoided and comes in first place. She is rewarded with an additional 20 seconds in the third part of the challenge to destroy things, but it is of no help as by that stage, Courtney had already destroyed everything, thereby winning immunity for the third time. Lindsay and Beth both plan on getting Duncan eliminated again and manages to get Harold to join in. However, during the elimination ceremony, Lindsay clumsily votes for herself after being distracted by Beth, leading to her elimination. After sharing a hug with Beth, Lindsay bids everyone goodbye before entering the Lame-o-sine.
In the finale, Lindsay is an avid supporter of Beth, and wishes that she win. When it is her turn to ask a finalist a question, she states that she is voting for Beth because she is her BFF and Beth states that she will take her on a cruise if she wins. Chris makes Lindsay rephrase her statement into a question, which Beth and Duncan both get right, leaving her confused on who to vote for. During voting, Lindsay sneezes on her ballot and her vote does not count. After the winner is declared, she is impressed to see Beth's boyfriend in person.
It is revealed in Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special that after Total Drama Action ended, Lindsay and Beth went on a vacation to Paris but ended up in jail after Lindsay smudged the Mona Lisa. In order to bail them out, Beth's parents have to sell their expensive car, or if Beth is the winner, she uses her prize money instead. She is reunited with the other contestants at the Gemmie Awards and joins them in stopping Chris from starting his new reality show. After one event leads to another, Lindsay is among those who were saved by Chris and qualifies for the next season.
Upon her arrival at the airport in Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 1, Lindsay blows a kiss to the camera when she is introduced. As Chris gives them a tour of the Total Drama Jumbo Jet, Lindsay finds herself in the first class compartment with Alejandro, Bridgette, DJ and Tyler. Alejandro compliments Lindsay by saying that the first class conditions are the type that a lady like Lindsay deserves. This immediately makes Lindsay attracted to Alejandro, who starts blushing at his flirting. Meanwhile, Tyler talks to DJ and says that Lindsay is supposed to like him. DJ says that no one can resist Alejandro, so Tyler tries to impress Lindsay by doing a handspring. He fails, and gets hurt. A concerned Lindsay asks him if he is okay, but forgets his name, as opposed to last season when she mentioned him repeatedly. She calls him "Alejandro", and the real Alejandro reminds her that "Alejandro" is his name. Lindsay compliments him, saying that it is a really nice name. Later, when the contestants sing Come Fly With Us, Lindsay sings it with Alejandro and Bridgette in first class. During the "Pyramid Under Over" challenge, Lindsay goes with Alejandro and Bridgette and climbs the pyramid.
She watches Alejandro climb the pyramid, and calls him the "cutest mountain goat" ever. Tyler chases after her, saying he can be a goat too. When they get to the top, Lindsay rides on Bridgette's shoulders as they surf to the bottom. Alejandro allows the two girls to go to the finish line before him, and Lindsay is placed on the winning team: Team Victory, with DJ, Harold, Leshawna, Bridgette and Ezekiel. In Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 2, Lindsay does less than she did in the previous challenge. She leaves most of the work to Harold, upon his request. As her team navigates through the desert and they see a cactus that they already saw, Lindsay waves to the cactus. When the team's stick breaks, Lindsay reveals that she does not know what a divining rod is, asking Harold to explain. During Rowin' Time, she informs Harold that the crocodiles attacking their boat are getting "killy". After her team loses, Chris is unsure that Lindsay knows how to use the voting devices. Lindsay assures him that she does, but ends up stamping all the passports for fun.
In Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan, Lindsay appears to have built a friendship with Bridgette, as both giggle when Harold says he could have also used a crate to block the hole in the plane, but chooses to leave the ladies wanting more. When Chris calls the contestants to the common area to discuss the challenge, Harold asks if the challenge is for elimination or reward. When Chris refuses to tell them, Tyler theorizes to Lindsay that he thinks it is probably going to be a reward challenge, since the last two challenges were eliminations. This excites Lindsay, and she expresses her wish of the prize being candy, or shoes, or even shoes made of candy. When Alejandro starts to pet Tsing-Tsing the panda and ask him if he wants a cookie, Lindsay, along with Bridgette, Izzy and Leshawna, think it is adorable. When Chris tells them that the second part of the challenge is to create a commercial for Chef Hatchet's Total Drama Yum Yum Happy Go Time Candy Fish Tails, Lindsay tells everyone a story about when she went to a Japanese restaurant and had a huge bowl of Pad Thai. Leshawna gets mad and snaps at Lindsay, telling her that Pad Thai is Thai, and not Japanese. Later, when Harold's commercial flops, Leshawna says that they should have gone with Lindsay's idea, and Lindsay says "See? I told you!" At the Barf Bag Ceremony, Lindsay once again messes up the voting. She enters the voting booth, admires the picture of her, saying it is a very good picture, hugs her passport, and leaves. Despite this, she receives the first barf bag.
In Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better, when the plane starts to shake and the seatbelt lights come on, Lindsay becomes afraid. She crosses her fingers, arms, and legs for luck. When they arrive in the Yukon, Lindsay, along with everyone else is very cold. She, along with Izzy and Leshawna, cuddles Alejandro to stay warm. During the ice flow jumping challenge, Lindsay passes by Tyler, and calls him "Noah". Tyler is not pleased by this, and says "It's T-T-Tyler!", while shivering. Lindsay is the first member of Team Victory that is picked up, since DJ and Leshawna were there from the start. From then on, Lindsay relaxes in her team's sled, gossiping to Leshawna about Harold. Later, when DJ hits a baby seal, Lindsay and Leshawna try to convince him that the seal is okay, using his eyes being frozen shut to their advantage, since DJ wanted to stop and help the animal. This is a lie, as the baby seal had fallen off the cliff. Unfortunately for Lindsay, her team loses yet again, due to the Curse of the Mummified Dog. However, in the Barf Bag Ceremony, Lindsay is the first contestant to receive a barf bag. Afterwards, as Tyler gives his confessional about how he finally made a name for himself in this episode, Lindsay barges in by accident, and apologizes, calling him "Noah" again.
Lindsay grows tired of her team's losing streak in Broadway, Baby!, and takes charge of her team, similar to what she did last season. Lindsay manages to rally Leshawna and DJ's mood and motivate them with a quick speech. Leshawna approves of Lindsay's attitude, while in the confessional, Lindsay admits that she only wants to win because she has brought a whole season's supply of lip gloss, and wants to be able to finish it all. Alejandro then walks into the economy class section, bringing food for the girls in the other teams. Lindsay tries to resist at first, but she notices her favorite type of chocolate, grabs it, and messily eats it. At the drop zone of the Total Drama Jumbo Jet, Chris gathers the remaining thirteen contestants into a small boat. Tyler asks Lindsay if she likes the boat, and Lindsay replies, but gets his name wrong again, this time calling him "Dave". Chris reveals that they are in New York City. Lindsay is ecstatic to be in New York, due to all of the stores and temptation to purchase many things. She says that she is going to buy ten season's worth of lip gloss without even trying. After Chris explains the challenge, Lindsay asks when they will go shopping, and Chris bluntly states that they won't, causing Lindsay to scream in horror.
While navigating the sewers in their boat, Lindsay hears a strange roaring sound, and asks if it was an alligator. DJ assures her that alligators in sewers are nothing more than an urban myth. She later cheers when her team makes it out of the sewers. Before the second part of the challenge begins, and the teams have to choose who pushes the baby carriage, Lindsay says that she wants to be in the baby carriage. She explains that it is because she loves to be called "baby", which causes Noah to tell Tyler to make a "mental note" of it. Lindsay has a major role in What's Not To Love, singing a big part of the song, due to her excitement about being in New York. During the song, when DJ and Leshawna stop dancing, Lindsay asserts her newfound authority and tells them to stop and focus on the challenge. Despite her team having the shortest path, they arrive to the finish line last. When Leshawna questions this, Lindsay says it is because her and DJ's dancing took the longest to recover from. As DJ recovers the apple from Turtle Pond, he tosses it to Lindsay. Due to Lindsay taking charge, her team does not come in last for once, coming in second place, which Chris congratulates them for.
In Slap Slap Revolution, Lindsay continues her running gag of forgetting her boyfriend's name, this time calling him Darrel when they reach the Alps. This makes Tyler even more upset than ever, and he tries to jog Lindsay's memory, saying that they were together in season one. Lindsay says that he must have her confused with someone else, as the only boy Lindsay has ever liked on Total Drama is Tyler, and he is never returning. When Chris arrives and tells the contestants to keep quiet or risk an avalanche, Lindsay misunderstands him, believing that there is a sale at the Khaki Barn. This causes her to yell in excitement and have her mouth covered by Tyler and Cody. During Eine Kleine, Lindsay sings about something "itching" in her brain, remembering that someone is back in the game, and recalls it to be her "former flame", Tyler. She walks over to Tyler, and hugs him, ecstatic that he returned. This overjoys Tyler, who screams "YES" and causes an avalanche. After the song, Lindsay gushes to DJ and Leshawna about her excitement due to Tyler being back. Leshawna plays along, and acts surprised, telling DJ that sometimes it is easier when you go along with her bubbly nature. During the sausage making challenge, Lindsay is in charge of packing down the meat. She cheers when Leshawna starts beating up Heather, even though it costs their team the win. Lindsay's team loses again, landing them in yet another Barf Bag Ceremony, where Lindsay receives the first barf bag for the third time in a row.
In The Am-AH-Zon Race, Lindsay comforts DJ about his curse, saying that they might just become the best team ever, which makes Chris taunt them. Lindsay is also upset about Leshawna's absence, wishing they had not voted her off. Tyler, while talking to his team, says that being in economy class is not all bad, referring to being with Lindsay. During the challenge, when Lindsay decides to take the left route by playing eenie-meenie, Tyler agrees with her and asks Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot to follow. For once, Lindsay and her team (consisting only of her and DJ) are in the lead, and they reach the zipline first. This allows them to use the T-Bar, and Lindsay rides on DJ's shoulders to the other side. On the walkie-talkies, Lindsay excitedly gushes about how her team is in first place, and greets Tyler, despite not being able to see him. Tyler waves back. When night falls, Chris catches up to Lindsay and DJ and rewards them with a crate of bananas to eat for dinner. Lindsay feasts on them, and falls asleep peacefully. With night fallen, Lindsay wakes up to a pattering sound.
She shines her flashlight on DJ, and he notices that he had been slapping monkeys who wanted their bananas, not bugs. He sighs at the fact that his curse has still not worn away. In the morning, it is shown that DJ has bandaged the wounds, and the two tread lightly. However, when the monkeys attack DJ, Lindsay watches in fright. When they finally reach Machu Picchu, and DJ once again acts upset about his curse, Lindsay points out that this time, the animals attacked him, rather than the other way around. The team continues to keep their lead, and they hunt for the golden statue. When Tyler and Owen think they have found it, Lindsay returns with the actual statue, and wins the challenge for her team. Finally in first class, the two are able to relax for the first time. DJ helps himself to a cookie, and Lindsay begins to ask him a question. DJ already knows it, however, and allows her to bring Tyler into the first-class section with her. Lindsay happily thanks DJ and kisses him on the cheek before running off to get him. In the exclusive clip of the episode, in the cockpit of the Total Drama Jumbo Jet, DJ and Lindsay are shown to be flying the plane as a reward.
In Can't Help Falling in Louvre, Lindsay is one of the first characters seen. She is seen relaxing in first class, enjoying the luxury. She is also excited to see Tyler, now that she finally remembers him, and discusses DJ's new "vegan" lifestyle with him. Lindsay misunderstands DJ, thinking he said he was "Megan". Meanwhile, in the economy class section, Tyler complains about missing Lindsay. When Lindsay finds out that they have arrived in Paris, she says that there is only one person she wants to share it with. She asks where her Tyler is, and Tyler shows up beside her. She looks confused, and says that he looked different in her head. Alejandro comments that everything looks different in her head. Lindsay asks her boyfriend if he always wears a tracksuit, then says that she is going to take him shopping after the challenge is over. During the challenge, Lindsay has to build "The Thinker", and due to DJ running off to the Egypt section to end his curse, Lindsay is left doing the entire challenge by herself.
While she carries the many heavy pieces, she requests DJ to do it, remarking that he is very big and strong, but DJ is too busy worrying about his curse. A concerned Tyler sees Lindsay working alone, and asks her where DJ is, and Lindsay says "Egypt, maybe?" Finally, Lindsay manages to nearly complete the challenge on her own and win another challenge for her team, but DJ comes in on a golf cart while being attacked by Sasquatchanakwa, a bear and a baby seal and destroys all of Lindsay's hard work. Since Lindsay could not remake the entire statue in time, her team loses. This forces a tiebreaker, which DJ believes he will lose. The tiebreaker turns out to be a fashion walk-off, which Lindsay is excited about. She immediately picks Tyler as her model. Lindsay tries out different hairstyles and designs for him, but Tyler approves none of them, wondering what his hockey team back home will think. However, he is glad that she is having fun, but tells her to give him a more dignified outfit.
Her final design for the challenge consists of Tyler wearing a long shirt, made from what seems to be several paintings wrapped together. It is tied with a rope belt and Tyler holding a frame around his face. Her design is disliked by the judges (Chris, Owen and Heather), and Lindsay loses the tiebreaker, disappointing both her and DJ. Lindsay is then sent home, making Tyler upset. However, he cheers up when he realizes that his friends will be able to see his "hot" girlfriend on television, and shows her off to his friends back home. They are unable to kiss, due to Chris saying that they don't have enough time left. Then, Lindsay takes the Drop of Shame. Lindsay jumps off the plane, but hits her head on the door and falls out of the plane, screaming. Her exclusive clip reveals that after the fall, her parachute becomes tangled in a gateway, and leaves her hanging upside down from it. A mime approaches her, and Lindsay asks him whether she can borrow his cellphone. The mime simply imitates her movements in reply, which begins to confuse and annoy her until she eventually begins yelling at him, as she does not realize it is a mime.
Lindsay returns in the aftermath show in Aftermath: Revenge of the Telethon, as the first Aftermath guest that Geoff and Bridgette bring in to raise money. Lindsay's unused lip gloss tubes from Broadway, Baby! are sold to raise money for the show, however Lindsay seems to be unaware of this, wondering if she was supposed to bring presents. She becomes excited when an intern wheels her crate of lip gloss in. Her four hundred remaining tubes of lip gloss are sold for every one hundred dollar donation, in an effort to raise one million dollars due to the Total Drama Jumbo Jet running out of fuel, and being stranded in Jamaica. As soon as Geoff makes this announcement, several calls are made, but it turns out none of them are for Lindsay. Lindsay ends up getting attacked by the animals after the "DJ's World of Animals" segment. As a monkey attacks her, Lindsay calls for Tyler repeatedly, and tries to tell him that someone is stealing her lip gloss.
Lindsay is also one of the five contestants to receive the opportunity to participate in the "Second Chance Challenge" and return to the game in Aftermath Aftermayhem by receiving a "Chris in the box". Lindsay starts off the competition, rolling the dice and landing on the Owen square. Her first challenge is to eat two Jamaican hot peppers and drink milk, while watching funny clips of the show without squirting milk out of her nose. The clips are all of Tyler injuring himself, but Lindsay does not laugh, saying she "never laughs at boyfriends". The hot peppers seem to have no effect on her, but then she then grabs her throat breathes fire from the heat, and Blaineley quickly moves on to the next contestant. Lindsay's second challenge, after landing on the Sweden square, is to balance some of Chef's Swedish meatballs on her nose for at least three seconds. However, she manages to do this before Geoff even tells her what the challenge is, performing it like a sea lion.
Lindsay sits with the rest of the Peanut Gallery in Hawaiian Punch. When Alejandro picks Tyler as one of his helpers, Lindsay sees that Tyler is knocked out from a hit from a golf ball earlier, and volunteers to help Alejandro instead. Lindsay works with Courtney in Versus to construct a dummy of Heather for Alejandro, and ends up winning the challenge, putting Alejandro in the lead. Alejandro takes the lead and tells his team to cut the ropes when he reaches that part of the challenge on the volcano. Heather tells her helpers to block them, which they do. Cody tells the girls that there is a sale on mascara, which causes Lindsay to run away into the depths of the jungle, much to Courtney's exasperation. When Heather defeats Alejandro, Lindsay cheers for her among everyone else.
In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Lindsay appears on the yacht with the other twenty-three original contestants. She and Tyler are sitting on a rail at the stern of the yacht, making out.
Lindsay returns in Runaway Model as a guest judge for the fashion show, alongside Chris and Chef, and is wearing a new pair of light blue boots. She initially gives the Mutant Maggots a 1.8, but after their maggot vomits and barely misses her (instead hitting Chef), she flips it around to give them an 8.1. Before she can score the Toxic Rats' Sasquatchanakwa, it goes into a fit of rage and kidnaps her, taking her to Boney Island on Chris's jetpack. This results in Chris making the impromptu decision to have the second part of the challenge be saving Lindsay from the Sasquatchanakwa. He takes her to the top of a mountain above a scaffolding that the contestants have to ascend in order to reach them. During her time with him, she seems to understand Sasquatchanakwa and his problems with his body issues. When Jo attempts to save Lindsay from him by putting on makeup (done by "Chester") to distract him, she and Sasquatchanakwa laugh at her. Jo then becomes enraged and punches Sasquatchanakwa off the cliff, "saving" Lindsay. With the challenge over Lindsay checks her makeup, but Jo swipes Lindsay's mirror to check her own face, finally realizing what Lindsay and Sasquatchanakwa found so funny. In a post-elimination scene at the end of the episode, it is revealed that Lindsay was accidentally left behind on Boney Island. She asks the Woolly Beavers where the boat is, but the beavers growl back and approach her.
In Heroes vs. Villains, Lindsay is one of the contestants brought back to compete in Total Drama All-Stars, and is placed on the Heroic Hamsters. In the season's first challenge, Lindsay is chosen by Courtney to push the baby carriage that transports the team members, as the team had trouble deciding who. However she immediately has trouble remembering how to get to the hotel and also what "pushing" meant, which greatly frustrates Courtney. Lindsay tires out early in the challenge, as Sierra jumps into the carriage with Courtney inside, making it much heavier. Mike is forced to propel the carriage himself with a pole, as Lindsay is too exhausted. Due to her weak performance in the challenge, Lindsay is voted out by her team and is the first all-star eliminated. Lindsay is delighted as she feels the money isn't worth the effort. Her only concern is having to take the Hurl of Shame, but she instead is put through the Flush of Shame. In the exclusive clip of the episode, she ends up in the sewers of New York and encounters the sewer alligator from before. Upon realizing the danger she is in, Lindsay runs away in fear.
In The Final Wreck-ening, Lindsay is seen in one of the balloons. Though she floats away with the others before an intern can get her down.
- View this video for Lindsay's audition tape.
Lindsay mentions all her good traits, stating that the application form asked her to do so. However, she states that she has too many good qualities to state. She begins by saying that she has a bikini for every season (even those not on the calendar), gets along with everyone (even ugly girls), loves to go camping (even though she's never gone) and is self-considered "bi-languagal" (meaning to say bilingual). She says she speaks fluent English and American, being unaware that American isn't a language.
Like many of the campers, Lindsay was featured in the prototype series of Total Drama Island called Camp TV. She was one of the main characters of the show. Like the current show, Lindsay was portrayed as being a spoiled rich girl, being called "The Spoiled Princess" by the narrator. Lindsay still has a relationship with Tyler, one that seems to be similar to Bridgette and Geoff's in Total Drama Action. Lindsay and Tyler's relationship is the only one portrayed in Camp TV that remained the same in Total Drama Island. Lindsay also seemed to be really close to Leshawna, though with Heather nonexistent in Camp TV and Leshawna offending Lindsay in one scene, it is unknown if they were best friends or adversaries. Lindsay's Camp TV voice is much lower in pitch and sounds more mature and refined compared to her high-pitched and childish tone she has in the Total Drama series. She also recites a line in the Camp TV promo that she would later say in Total Drama Island's second episode: "I thought this was going to be a talent contest!", just before diving off a cliff in both instances. Later in the promo, Harold's Red Ant Farm was seen all over her as she screamed and ran away.
Lindsay's original design does not greatly differ from her current design. Outside of the obvious change in art style, Camp TV's Lindsay had a bandanna with white polka dots, sandals instead of boots, a visible reddish-brown thong instead of pink underpants, and red tank top straps instead of brown ones. Her hair, while still blonde, was slightly darker and shorter. Her chest was flatter, too.

Also, she proposed to her team to choose Beth as the killer as Beth couldn't scream.
- In Get a Clue, she was able to solve the whole mystery about the supposed "death" of Chris, even though she had committed several mistakes during the episode.
