Owen, labeled The Party Guy, was a camper and season finalist in Total Drama Island as a member of the Screaming Gophers. He later returned as a castmate in Total Drama Action on the Killer Grips, and qualified for Total Drama World Tour representing Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot. After making two cameo appearances in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, he did not qualify for Total Drama All-Stars but appeared in The Final Wreck-ening, the season's last episode.
Owen's two biggest loves are eating and having a good time. Among his peers, he is arguably the most popular contestant of all time for his cheerful ways, optimistic viewpoints no matter what the situation, and ability to see the best in people. He even accomplishes the impossible in making a friend of Chris. He always tries to help his team win challenges despite his physical and mental disadvantages. Usually enthusiastic at first, he often ends up failing, the majority in humorous ways. As a running gag in the series, Owen is frequently naked, farting, or sometimes both. He has mentioned on numerous occasions that his response to stress (among many other emotions) is eating. Owen is also a sensitive person, describing himself as feeling things on a deep level. He tells Heather in Trial By Tri-Armed Triathlon that he feels like no one listens to him. Additionally, when he is strapped to an electric chair in The Aftermath: III, during the Truth or Electrocution segment, Owen is so frightened of being shocked that he launches into a tirade of all his wrongdoings - before Geoff even asks him a question. Despite being one of the nicest contestants on the show, Owen has a dark side like most others. In Dodgebrawl, he participates in the dodgeball game with little remorse for the opposing Killer Bass. In Total Drama Action, broke from his mother's spending, Owen is offered money to come back from elimination and create drama between the remaining cast mates. Although he feels bad about his job, he continues to "stir up the doo-doo" even when not instructed, claiming "it's hard going cold turkey."Screaming Gophers in Not So Happy Campers - Part 1, much to his excitement.
Owen helped his team win the first challenge in Not So Happy Campers - Part 2 after he conquered his initial fear of diving off the cliff and jumped off which gave his team the winning point. However, he lost his bathing suit and was naked when he got out of the water. One episode later, in The Big Sleep, Owen was one of the slowest people running in the twenty-kilometer run, meeting complaints by insisting that he has a condition, leading Heather to reply, "It's called overeating, look into it." Despite having difficulty during the challenge, Owen carried Noah over his shoulder for the final length of the race after Noah apparently lost consciousness; once he reaches the main lodge, Owen then places him on a table and pumps his chest in order to normalize Noah's breathing rate, although this has no effect initially, Noah is shown waking up when Chris announced that the Gophers had won. Afterward, Owen was very excited to see a buffet of food and ate much of it. Owen claims in the confessional that baked beans make him sleepwalk. True to his allegation, he sleepwalks for over two days, doing many things such as jumping through the water like a flying fish up a waterfall, farting in a cave full of Sasquatchanakwa, and sleeping in a beaver's dam. Owen was the first person to fall asleep in the challenge and on his team.
In Dodgebrawl, Owen is shown to be an outstanding dodgeball player, knocking out four Killer Bass members very quickly in the second round due to the fact that Izzy was hurt during the round. But once Duncan comes into the competition, he gets hit many times. However, in a final round against Harold, he nearly got him out, but after he threw a ball a second time, Harold catches the hard-thrown ball. Once Noah makes a hypocritical comment about the team's lack of effort, Owen and the other guys looked at him unhappily. For Owen's effort, he got the first marshmallow and nobody voted for him.
In Not Quite Famous, he tried out with his talent of burping the alphabet in one go after drinking a liter of spda. Owen's parents were very happy that he burped the alphabet after drinking a liter of soda (read below for more). All the remaining guys are impressed by this talent, but the females are disgusted by the talent. His talent was rejected by Heather. When Bridgette started to barf when she was trying to do her talent in the talent show, Owen got barfed on along with a few others. Later in the episode, the Screaming Gophers lost and Owen got tricked by Heather into voting off Justin by bribing him with a piece of cake.
Other than Owen's love for food, he thinks of himself as a great outdoors man. He often told his friends of fake hunting stories with his grandfather in his youth, though they turned out to be exaggerated tall tales after being confronted with similar events in the show. He takes the outdoor wildlife challenges very seriously, often talking about the thrill of the hunt and the importance of being in tune with Mother Nature and the animals of the forest. Despite his efforts, Owen in reality is a rather poor hunter and his uncontrollable flatulence almost always foils his attempts to be stealthy. In Paintball Deer Hunter, it is shown that he is also not a very good shot with a paintball gun, running out of ammunition by the time he finally corners his prey, never once hitting his intended target. While his spirit and determination is admirable, hunting and surviving in the wild is definitely not an area where Owen is strong. On the positive side, he proves to be an excellent fisherman in The Sucky Outdoors, and has a keen sense of smell. He attempts to bond with the wildlife of Muskoka several times, but often ends up on the receiving end of an animal attack. Owen is, in fact, the unluckiest camper when it comes to close encounters with the wild animals. He has been attacked by bears, a chipmunk, beavers, a raccoon, a rattlesnake, bees, and various other forms of wildlife. But, unlike Cody, who was severely mauled by a bear to the extent that he was rendered useless as a teammate and voted off the island as a result, Owen always manages to recover quickly from his injuries.In Trial by Tri-Armed Triathlon, Owen is teamed up with Heather, and they are forced to work as a team to win the challenge. They are handcuffed, and are to complete a three part challenge. The first challenge is an eating challenge, were they take it easily because of his love of food. Heather has to spoon feed Owen and she can't go fast enough so they decide to jam all the food in Owen's mouth, much to his delight. The next part is where Owen's fear of spiders come back to haunt him. The teams are to canoe to Boney Island and return the pieces of a haunted tiki idol to a cave in the middle of the island. On their canoe is when they begin to argue. Heather doesn't care what Owen has to say and Owen doesn't seem to care that much, but, in the next challenge he will. When they get to Boney Island, they have to piggyback ride to the cave. When they get there, Owen sees a spider. Heather tries to do her best to calm him, but he eventually runs in terror when it falls on his face, losing them the part of the challenge. In the last challenge, the teams are to place wooden heads of all the losing contestants in line in the order of which they were eliminated. Heather bags on all the contestants she finds, but when she happens upon one of the two heads of Izzy, she says, "Eww, look who I found. Little miss crazy." Owen attempts to change the subject, but to no anvil. The queen bee continues to mock her partner's girlfriend, which continues to enrage the usually very calm Owen. After one last rude comment, Owen finally snaps and demands the wimp key which would unlock the two, but lose the challenge. Just then, Leshawna and Duncan win, meaning everyone is up for elimination. In the confessional, Owen shows his anger toward Heather calling her a nasty, censored insult. After everyone says who they pick, Owen is shown kissing the wooden head of his beloved Izzy, showing he still has feelings for her. Owen is safe to stay another week after Geoff gets the boot because he was too nice. Besides his cheery disposition, Owen is mainly known for his obscene appetite. Over the course of the series, Owen has eaten many things people would otherwise consider disgusting, from garbage (in Basic Straining) to toilet bowl seats (which he thought looked like a pancake) from I Triple Dog Dare You!. Instead of focusing on the competition near the end of the series in I Triple Dog Dare You!, Owen instead harps on endlessly about his love for pancakes. In that same episode, he has (on a dare) eaten dog food and Harold's chewed gum. He is the only person who has little to no complaints about Chef Hatchet's abysmal cooking, often asking for seconds and eating whatever the other campers do not finish. He has even complimented Chef's meals on rare occasions. In Brunch of Disgustingness, Owen claims he would literally eat anything, even his own drawers if he had to. And it was Owen's willingness to eat anything that ultimately won him and his all-guys team the challenge of that episode: a weekend on a luxury yacht. It is shown one episode later that Owen can get rather emotional when food is wasted, such as when Leshawna rejects his generous offer for chocolate-covered cherry blossoms by throwing the entire box of them into the lake. Owen cries and moans for the loss.
While Owen's love for food has earned him some critical wins over the series, it has also caused him and/or his team to lose at times as well. In Are We There Yeti?, Owen's attraction to the scent of Chef's sticky buns cost him and Duncan the challenge, and ultimately caused Duncan to get eliminated from the competition because of his nearly-insatiable hunger (Owen was saved only because he respects Chef's cooking and did not constantly irritate him in the past like Duncan had). He gave in to temptation in If You Can't Take The Heat... by eating almost the entirety of his team's main course, the ribs. But because it was revealed that Beth had inadvertently cursed her team with a Tiki doll she brought from Boney Island in the same episode, Owen was again saved from elimination. Overall, though, for Owen himself, his appetite proved to help more than hinder him, as it was the scent of freshly-baked brownies that rejuvenated his exhausted body in The Very Last Episode, Really!, allowing him to pass Gwen and reach the finish line. With his keen sense of smell and bottomless pit for a stomach, Owen won Total Drama Island and $100,000.At the beginning of the series, he shows signs of being homosexual, such as being happy he wasn't bunking with girls, stating that he found Justin incredibly attractive and that he would like to kiss him (though correcting himself afterwards), and kissing both Duncan and DJ when they formed the guys' alliance. However, later in the series, he shows an attraction to Izzy and made out with her during Hook, Line, and Screamer. He was also the only man to be swayed by Justin's charms in Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island similar to the way the women were, but thanks to his friends, he was quickly snapped out of it. Despite his attraction to Justin, it is well overshadowed by Owen's feelings for Izzy, whom he had proclaimed his love for in the same episode early on. It is worth noting that while Owen and Izzy's relationship was caught in a snag due to the events of Hook, Line, and Screamer, Izzy has apparently forgiven Owen because she played the largest part in getting Owen to win Total Drama Island, as it was her who came up with the idea of rejuvenating Owen with the scent of freshly-baked brownies. They celebrated by hugging and kissing each other, reaffirming the fact that they had made up. In the special, however, their relationship was not touched upon very much outside of Owen's proclamation of love; Owen and Izzy ended up in different search teams for the million-dollar case. But it is worth noting that Owen said in the confessional, "How can you not love a woman who belches like a man and comes back for more?." Izzy's male-like qualities being glorified by Owen could be seen as strong evidence that he is indeed bisexual. Both Owen and Izzy qualified to compete on Total Drama Action, so there may be more events yet to come in Owen's love life, especially since Justin is also coming back as a contestant, and Izzy regards him as an enemy.
In his ending, as opposed to Gwen's, he wins Total Drama Island and the $100,000. However, he forfeits the money when he is offered to compete with the rest of the campers to win $1,000,000 in Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island. He teams up with DJ, Cody, and Tyler, whose group is the first to find the case. However, due to suspicion, they all tie themselves together so no one can run away. Unfortunately, Owen had to use to the bathroom, in his case number "poo." The stench destroys the bush, which causes the group to drop the case, and also causes Harold and Heather to steal it. They find the case again later, after they steal it from Justin. Owen began to fall for Justin's charms, but DJ told him to stop. After nearly falling off the cliff (courtesy of the bear), they get stuck on a wire attached to Courtney's hot air balloon. Owen manages to grab on the wire and bring them up to the hot air balloon, but the bear follows them up. After a long series of events, Owen and thirteen other campers land in the Dock of Shame. In the end, the case that contained the money was eaten by a shark and there were no winners. However, since Owen was at the Dock of Shame when the case was lost, he qualified to try to win the money again in the second season along with the thirteen other campers.
In Total Drama Action, Owen is still quite popular among other contestants. Throughout the season, Owen's eating habits start to get the better of him, usually leading him to getting blocked bowels, which forces him to have to take various kinds of medicine and/or restrict his eating habits. In the first episode, he eats a large number of food props, leading to him having major clogging problems. He chooses to eat only prunes in the next episode in order to fix it (shocking everyone that he decides not to eat pancakes). Later, his jaw is injured by Chef's book, leading to him being forced to take various medicines (though most were taken by Leshawna). His wired jaw also restricts his eating, causing him to get extremely worked up when food is around him. Owen constantly tries to get back together with Izzy. At first, he said that he wasn't sure if he loved Izzy, but he really liked her a lot. He tries at various times during the season to get her attention, though always fails to something (like a giant mechanical monster) that Izzy is interested in. Later, after she abandons her E-Scope identity, the two do successfully get back together.Owen arrived on the set with the other contestants when a giant monster (controlled by Chef Hatchet) is sent to capture the contestants as they try to find the trailers they would be living in. Owen was the last one to be caught (after hiding under a cardboard standee of a car) by the monster, but his obesity caused the monster's arm to malfunction and he was able to get away. He then found the bouncy castle that contained the captured contestants (held near the trailers), took out a needle and popped it, freeing them all (except for Izzy, who was on a date with the monster). This challenge wasn't for elimination, however. In the same episode, there was a reward challenge. Chris showed the contestants a buffet full of food, but before Chris could say what the challenge was, Owen ate all the food, commenting that the turkey was a little dry. Chris told Owen that the food items were props made of Styrofoam and wax, and that the challenge wasn't to eat the most food, but to find a key hidden in the fake food. Owen then belches and the key comes out. That left the other castmates commenting on how insane the stunt he just pulled was (Leshawna commented, "That boy's got guts. Guts full of foam core and rubber, but guts; just the same.") The winner got to decide which trailer the contestants got to bunk in: the one crushed by the monster or the other one. Owen chose the one crushed by the monster because it had more "character." When the trailer is fixed, he shares a bunk bed with Trent.
Owen later suffers from all the sawdust and foam core in his stomach in Alien Resurr-eggtion, as it is causing him to have uncontrollable gas build ups. Owen is so uncomfortable and miserable that he even refuses to eat anything, but prunes for breakfast (much to the uttermost dismay of everyone else), as he becomes desperate to rid himself of the inedible junk that is clogging up his system. During the Alien Egg challenge, his gas bubble finally bursts and Owen allows Chef to eliminate him from the challenge so he can run to the bathroom. By the end of the episode, he is very relieved to have everything flushed out of his system.
In 3:10 to Crazytown, Owen actually starts to mess with a few of the challenges and causes some uproar from the contestants. During the horse landing challenge, Owen missed the horse and fell three feet deep into the ground, and the horse ran off. Owen did manage to catch and get on the horse, though. Chris awarded him the point, which caused the Gaffers to complain, since Owen didn't officially land on the horse. Owen also wrecked the tie breaking quick draw challenge when he drank all the water from the squirt guns, to which Chris was forced to create a new tie breaking challenge.
In The Chefshank Redemption, Owen seems to have become a member of Justin's unofficial alliance during the prison break challenge. However, it is unclear if he is an actual part of the group, as he is already easily manipulated by Justin. He aids Justin in blackmailing Gwen to throw the challenge for the Grips as payback for Trent's cheating, but does not seem as serious about it as Justin and Beth. His team finally wins the challenge thanks to Gwen, and he reunites with Izzy after she unexpectedly returns to the show. He seems to have resumed his relationship with her.In The Sand Witch Project, Owen and Izzy make out again during the horror film challenge. He was also upset about DJ leaving the show, mostly about the food DJ cooked for the rest of the contestants. As DJ leaves, Owen would once again have to go through Chef Hatchet's food, and in the end of this episode, Owen pukes on Chris' shoes. In Masters of Disasters, Chef throws a large book at Owen in the first part of the disaster, leading his team to victory by default. Unfortunately, the book broke his jaw and Owen had to be escorted to the hospital to get his jaw rewired, resulting in him missing out on the second part of the challenge. The rest of the cast is deeply worried about his condition for the rest of the episode. By the end of the episode, Owen returns in a wheelchair with his jaw rewired and is cross-eyed (as a result of the painkillers, Chris claims). Chris allows Owen to eat with the Screaming Gaffers only if Owen promises not to file a lawsuit for the damage of his jaw, which Owen agrees to. He is rewarded with a blender, soda, and some chips to indulge in.
In Full Metal Drama, Owen becomes constipated because of the blended food he's been eating. He never receives the liquid bran Chef makes for him, because he lets Leshawna drink it. He tries to comfort Izzy when she is eliminated, by offering to kiss her, but she is pulled away by Chef Hatchet and was dragged to the Lame-o-sine off-screen.In Ocean's Eight - Or Nine, Owen was one of the contestants being locked in a vault during the bank heist challenge. Beth uses her perfume scent in order to get him to break out. After he managed to break free from it, he continually thinks that his teammates are food after they keep referencing it. Later at the award ceremony, Owen was voted off. Although he and the other contestants on his team voted for the most recently returned Courtney, he was eliminated because Courtney's lawyer granted her immunity in this episode. Therefore, she was safe from elimination, despite the votes. Since Courtney voted for Owen, he was sent home. Before he leaves, he was granted a farewell speech and thanks his fellow teammates and his family, even imagining Chris, Justin, Lindsay, and Beth as food products like pizza, a hot dog, soda pop and a drumstick respectively.
Owen is revealed to have asked the Lame-o-sine driver to go to the nearest fast food restaurant in a recap from One Million Bucks, B.C.. Owen is also mentioned when Chris says there was going to be a mammoth hunting challenge, but they could not because Owen was voted off. In Super Hero-ld, after Harold demonstrated his farting powers, Chris applauded, saying that someone needed to carry the flame now that Owen was gone.In The Aftermath: III, Owen reveals, that as a child, he had done many terrible things (covering nuns in fake vomit, gluing his uncle's wig to a goat's butt, pushing his little brother down the stairs, changing the score on his math test and eating all of the "camp for fat kids" lunch). Owen also discovered (via his mother on webcam) that after Owen won, his mother spent fifty thousand dollars on a cheese cellar. Owen didn't mind since the cellar was, in fact, full of cheese. Owen acted as a peacemaker between Geoff and Bridgette for a good amount of the episode. Owen, along with Bridgette, Heather, and Leshawna worked together to bring Geoff back to his old self. It was revealed that he has gained ten pounds.
Owen returns to the show in Rock n' Rule when Chris paid him $50,000 to come back to compete as a saboteur, in order to bring more drama to the show. Courtney was outraged; she claimed he was sent home fairly. During this episode, Owen mostly ate some food before the challenge began. When Lindsay brought him, Beth and Harold to join her to vote off Duncan, Owen tells them he couldn't because he thought of voting off Courtney instead, even though she won invincibility, and he didn't want to vote anybody off. Owen voted for Courtney at the ceremony, but Lindsay was sent home when she accidentally voted herself off, leaving Owen and the others shocked.
Upon his return to the show, Owen takes on a guilty antagonist role, similar to DJ earlier in the season. Although DJ was given tips and tricks to simply win, Owen (under Chris' deal) rigs challenges for the other contestants, to make winning more difficult for them. Owen feels guilty about his actions, but does them simply so he can get the money and pay off his family's debt.In Crouching Courtney, Hidden Owen, Chris tells Owen that he will not participate in the challenge, but rather he will try to sabotage either Duncan and Harold or Courtney and Beth during the challenge. However, Owen can't choose which team to sabotage due to his friendly nature, so instead of sabotaging one team, he helps both. It is shown in this episode that Owen has forgiven Courtney for her voting him off, since he helps her during the challenge, apparently having buried his grudge with her, something she seems to have done as well. He is dressed as a geisha for a lot of the challenge.
In 2008: A Space Owen, Owen starts to feel really guilty about being the troublemaker. What makes it worse is that he receives a trophy from home saying that he is a good person. Owen manages to sabotage the rocket by breaking the window, but only winded up being the sealant for it. Owen was the second person to ride the Vomit Comet and revealed that he farted many times while in it. Harold confronted Owen about his traitor status, but Owen farted enough so Harold would leave him alone (although he did chop his trophy off its stand). Owen was worried when Harold found out that he was a traitor, so he voted Harold off the show. Luckily for him, Harold was voted off and he was not able to reveal Owen's traitorous status.
In Top Dog, Owen starts to enjoy continually sabotaging the contestants. When he had to choose an animal, he chose the bear. While acting for Chris, he and the bear unknowingly acted before they started. When it became time to venture the forest, Chris gave him a GPS. He caused Courtney to become enemies with her animal, and caused Duncan to go crazy after falling in a hole. He failed to sabotage Beth. He was caught in a net he set up for someone else, and earlier he said he wasn't needed there. He and the bear ate excessively, and gained enough weight to break the net. However, he said in a confessional that he should have checked if the berries were poison or not. Courtney and Beth later revealed his traitor status, and was later fired, which also counts as his elimination. He later admits that being the mole was easy now since he convinced himself to back stab everyone equally.
Owen decides to eat healthier in The Aftermath: IV, even though Noah does not believe him. He reveals that he actually went home and ate all the cheese in the new cheese cellar. His "question" was that Duncan and Beth have a healthy eating contest. He was seen voting for Duncan by drawing a stick person with a mohawk and an angry expression on it. He later used the voting booth as a restroom, grossing out Leshawna and Trent.
In Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special, Owen is still trying to encourage the world to be healthy by selling exercise equipment with a set of fake abs taped onto his stomach. He is briefly seen in DJ's cooking show trying to steal some food, but DJ's mom slaps his hand before he can get any. He later shows up at the Gemmies, but is not allowed in like the other contestants (and Sierra). On the bus, it is shown that he has a stash of thousands of chocolates which he eats after his workouts, which he catapults onto the Dirtbags' bus using Leshawna's bra. When the bus falls into the canyon and hits the ground, Owen is seen being relieved that he's alive, but unknown to him, he crushed Noah. He is one of the cast members who doesn't go to look for help, and manages to make it to Total Drama World Tour.Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 1, Owen is shown to still have aerophobia (even though he supposedly conquered his fear in Total Drama Island). After complaining too much about not wanting to get on the plane, Owen is hit with a frying pan on the head by Chris. Later, during the musical number, Owen is once again seen complaining about flying, getting knocked out on the head with a frying pan again by Chris. After arriving in Egypt, Owen forms a trio with Izzy and Noah. However, during the challenge, they lose Izzy. Later, Noah seems to have found Izzy, and Owen wants to give her a kiss, however, Noah quickly realizes that it isn't Izzy, causing Noah and Owen to run out of the pyramid in fear, thinking it was an actual mummy (although it turned out to be Ezekiel). Owen is later put into Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot, along with Alejandro, Noah, Sierra and Tyler.
In Walk Like An Egyptian - Part 2, Owen is inspired by Alejandro's speech in the beginning of the challenge. He decides to call him "Al" to which Alejandro pretends to be okay with, but secretly has a problem with. Owen tries to help his team, as he picked some plants he found near the Nile River, for the purpose of constructing the team's canoe. Sierra explained to him they would need a lot more for this. Then, Izzy and Sierra swap teams and Alejandro once again motivates his team. Owen is seen finishing the rest of the canoe with Izzy. Later in the episode, his team finishes second and doesn't have to go to the elimination ceremony. Owen is last seen panicking about being in the plane.In Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan, Owen is still panicking about being on the plane. Noah tries to reassure him about it, saying he'd only be in danger if he were in a deathtrap, but a piece of the plane breaks off. It sucks Owen towards it, but he is too big to fall out. Instead he acts as an air lock to prevent anyone else from falling out. In the song Before We Die, Owen has the a few solos and sings the last one of the song. In the human pinball challenge, Owen's team wins, giving them an advantage in the next challenge. They get to choose their props for a commercial first. They find a monster costume which Owen agrees to dress up in after extra persuasion from Izzy. He gets into his character early, before the team has started filming. So Noah warns him not to crush the city that he and Tyler are building before they start. In the commercial, Owen is destroying the city until Alejandro gives him Chef Hatchet's Total Drama Yum Yum Happy Go Time Candy Fish Tails to make him stop. After the commercial is filmed and Chef is judging, Owen is still wearing the monster costume because he gets sweaty and can't get it off. Nonetheless, his team finishes second in the challenge, saving them from elimination, but once again they stayed in the losers' cabin. In Anything Yukon Do, I Can Do Better, Owen is sleeping in the beginning of the episode, but is woken up when he hears Noah say "Candied fish-tails." He soon after panics about being in the plane yet again, so Alejandro pushes one of his pressure points to stop panicking and he falls back asleep. When the plane lands, he and Noah are the only ones who don't walk and fall out of it into the snow, but he pushes Noah and jumps out. Once in the Yukon, he sees Noah get rejected by Bridgette and lets his know that he can cuddle with him. When the challenge starts, he jumps on the ice flow after Noah and accidentally sends him flying into a pile of snow. But he continues anyway. He and Cody, despite being on opposite teams end up on the same ice flow and are almost attacked by a polar bear. Sierra gets it away, but causes them to fall into the water. Owen pees in the water, making Cody swim away. Later in the episode, Izzy and Tyler, who were the first to make it through the ice flow on their team, pick up Owen soon after Noah. On the sled, after they pick up Alejandro, Owen talks about how he wants to go to Russia because they have the biggest cake in the world. When Tyler tries to pull the sled he can't do it because of Owen's weight. After he and the rest of his team almost fall off a cliff, they get back on the sled at a fast speed. Owen leans forward after Noah's direction to get more speed and it works, putting his team in first place. He offers to give Alejandro a high-five for their victory, but he walks away. In Broadway, Baby!, Owen is first shown asleep and tied up in the first class section, until he rolls off the couch. This uncovers a crushed Noah. When Chris is explaining the episode's challenge, Owen says he's always wanted to ride in a horse-drawn carriage. While climbing the Statue of Liberty, Owen gets stuck in the rope and eventually gets stuck inside the nose. Owen cheers for Izzy as she gets the carriage. When it is his turn to slide down the pole, he gets stuck in the hole and asks Alejandro to give him a push down, to which he responds by whacking Owen on the head with the carriage. Owen has many solos in What's Not To Love. He grabs Tyler out of the water after he gets their apple to shore. Owen complains that Noah ate all his pretzels when he thought he turned into a baby. Owen's last appearance in the episode is when he is seen cheering because the challenge was only a reward challenge.
In Slap Slap Revolution, Owen starts to become overconfident. He claims that, under Alejandro's leadership, they can do anything and says he is even unafraid of flying. This soon changes due to the plane breaking and him almost falling out. During the challenge, his team believes they are making progress on their sausage, while Owen is actually eating all of the meat, so his team uses him as the sausage and rides him down the mountain. He was one of the people to do the dancing challenge, but fell off the platform after throwing up some sausage, which he later eats.In the Am-AH-Zon Race, Owen is sleeping in the plane and snoring, when Alejandro tries to wake him up. However, this causes Owen to flail his arms, just barely missing Izzy and punching Alejandro in the eye. He notices that Alejandro wants revenge on him, and even worries about it in the confessional, wanting to be better friends with him. In the challenge, he follows his team to go left on the path and then the team comes across the rope that helps them cross the river. Alejandro goes first, encouraging his team to try it out. Owen goes on with his encouragement, only using his hands to slide down, ultimately burning his hands on the way down to the other side. When Izzy crosses with Noah in her backpack, she knocks over Tyler and Owen. During the walkie-talkie conversation, Owen joins the conversation asking if Chris was going to need back-up singers. Chris says no, that only Team Amazon was going to sing in this episode. That night, his team is attacked by giant caterpillars and is apparently dragged away by them and covered in a cocoon. The next morning, his team leaves without him, not noticing what had happened to him until they reach the summit of Machu Picchu, where Alejandro volunteers to find him. When he does, Owen asks why he let the caterpillars take him away, knowing that he was awake, but Alejandro tricks him into thinking that he was his only true friend because he was the only one searching for him. Owen accepts this, though he admits that he is still scared of him. When he reaches Machu Picchu, he pulls out an obelisk that makes the temple behind everyone begin to collapse, making everyone run away to safety. His team once again got second place and will not be attending elimination.
In Can't Help Falling in Louvre, Owen tries to cheer Tyler up, who is missing Lindsay. He says he also misses Izzy when she's gone for too long. Owen is used as something heavy to grab onto when Izzy messes with the plane's controls. Later during the challenge, Owen says he can't make it through the security lasers so Noah does it instead. He is later seen eating a painting of a fruit bowl and saying that acrylic tastes good. Before the walk-off, when Chris announces it, he says he hates walking. He is one of three judges, in the walk-off. He says Tyler's outfit just made him hungry, and that he liked DJ's "design." Although, he also said during DJ's judging that he wasn't really paying attention, because he didn't know that there would be a second model, but still states that he liked DJ's shirt.
In Newf Kids on the Rock, Owen is seen to be rather nervous about allying with DJ, because he feels he's always been the "alliance-ee, not the alliance-er." Noah then gives Owen advice on approaching him, stating that it's like asking a girl out. However, he takes this literally and tries to set Noah and DJ up for a date. Soon after, Heather falls out of a luggage compartment and covers up her spying by issuing Owen a "ticket for dirty socks." Once contestants are pushed out of the plane and forced to swim up to their team's boat later on in the episode, the other members of Team Chris is Really, Really, Really, Really Hot pull Owen to it in a fishing net. Since Team Amazon doesn't make it to the beach before them, "Team Victory" and Team Chris are put in to several challenges against each other, all of which DJ is forced to do by himself. Owen easily chugs vinegar during one of the before mentioned challenges. Towards the end of the episode, Alejandro finds one of Owen's socks in his soup, due to the works of Heather. In a deleted clip, Owen is seen in this episode going through a barrel. In this, he finds a pair of underwear, which he eats, an MP3 Player resembling Eva's which he keeps, and lastly he finds Ezekiel hiding in the pot. They both scream at each other until Owen quickly shuts the barrel and exits.In Jamaica Me Sweat, Owen enjoys first class with Noah eating his facial cucumbers/fruit plate (according to himself.). After Izzy kicks him in the groin trying to show him the springy airplane seats, Owen tells him that he has decided to break up with Izzy even though he still likes her, to which Noah responds he should because she's "nutty." Izzy begins chewing on an airplane bag, when Owen sweetly states that she's happy. Later, Owen tries to talk to Izzy about their relationship, but she jumps from the crashing plane, the force pulling him out with her. Owen lands on the nearby beach, not far from the plane, unharmed, until Izzy lands on him and unintentionally kicks him in the groin again. While Owen cries in pain, the plane suddenly lands on top of both him and Izzy, leaving Owen delusional with a concussion and Izzy in a temporary coma. Owen and Izzy are both rushed to the hospital (a.k.a: a small Jamaican infirmary) in an ambulance. Owen eventually awakens at the infirmary; however Izzy remains in a coma in a hospital bed next to his. Owen blames himself for Izzy's coma, thinking that wanting to break up with her made it happen. Izzy suddenly wakes up, a new person, stating that she has devised a mathematical theory for time-travel, scaring Owen even further. Owen remains in the infirmary, only visited by Gwen, who is suffering from electric shock. While they exchange friendly greetings and concerns for the other, Owen informs her that he is fine, but tells her of Izzy's condition, saying that the doctor told him the impact of the plane fixed a blockage in her brain, making her a genius. Gwen laughs, wondering if the words she is speaking are even English, to which Owen responds he has no idea. Soon after, Izzy is taken away by the U.S. army, because of her new-found genius, not before Owen admits that he was thinking of breaking up with her. Izzy then ends the relationship herself, saying that they just weren't compatible. Owen is devastated, and misses Izzy, though Gwen supports him and tries to convince him that she was the one who was wrong and just plain crazy. This prompts Chris to ring the bell, meaning that Owen and Gwen have to sing a song about their feelings towards Izzy. Owen sadly sings and reminisces about Izzy in Oh My Izzy. During the song, Gwen mentions that Izzy was the one who broke up with him, not the other way around, and once the song ends, Gwen put her hand on him for comfort. Much later in the day, Owen rejoins his team with the doctor's "okay" to compete again, however he is still uncoordinated from the injury, and trips. This is much to Alejandro's displeasure. During the challenge, Owen fills Noah in on what happened to him and Izzy. Owen and Noah are paired up for the challenge, though Owen repeatedly gets stuck in pipes on the course, making horrible time for their team. However, due to Alejandro's trickery, Owen and Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot win the challenge, sending DJ to elimination. In I See London..., Owen is first seen in the economy section with his team and Team Amazon (despite them winning the previous challenge). After Sierra updates her 'blog' using a pizza box, Noah starts to make fun of her causing Owen to squirt the milk he was drinking out of his nose and onto Noah (much to his dislike). Owen and Noah continue joking around about Courtney's bird poo and Sierra's blog updating, causing an annoyed Alejandro to leave (and is kidnapped by the Ripper). When it comes time to jump down to London, Noah and Owen wind up sharing a parachute since they are short one. Owen lands on Noah when they land on a double decker bus. Once arriving at the Tower of London, Owen and Noah force Tyler into stripping the guard down in order to find the first clue (since neither of them want to do it). While wearing the guard's hat (and imitating the Queen) Owen finds the clue in the guard's hat (much to Tyler and Noah's annoyance). During the next challenge, Noah and Owen tie Tyler to the stretch table. As they stretch him, Noah reveals to Owen that he dislikes Alejandro. Owen and Noah find the clue, but end up leaving Tyler on the table (resulting in him being kidnapped by the Ripper). They next head to the banquet hall where Owen is attacked by the guard dogs, but they don't harm him and he states they're like a fur coat for animal lovers.After Noah reads the clue, Owen figures out that it is a double decker bus (which Noah jokingly says that Owen's been holding out on him). Once the two reach the bus, Noah is kidnapped by the Ripper and is locked inside the driver's compartment. Coming to his friend's aid Owen reveals that he has the guard dogs inside his bag and (imitating the Queen yet again) commands them to attack, though they end up attacking him instead, as he had a sausage in his pocket the whole time. Owen manages to kick the sausage towards the Ripper, causing the guard dogs to attack the Ripper. Owen captures the Ripper and farts in his face (and gasses up the whole bus much to Noah's disapproval). The two make it back to the plane and realize that their teammates have been listening to their entire conversation. Owen reveals the Ripper, who turns out to really be Ezekiel (though the real challenge was bringing Duncan back, so his team ultimately lost). Owen is nervous that Alejandro might target Noah at the elimination, which winds up becoming true. Owen is both shocked and saddened about Noah's departure. Noah tries to warn him about Alejandro before leaving and then jumps out of the plane.
At the beginning of Greece's Pieces, Owen is resting with this team in the economy-class section. He frantically talks in his sleep, warning Noah not to eat a poisonous food. He then frightens himself awake from his bad dream. In his confessional, he states that Tyler and Alejandro seem to be really tight now, and that he misses Noah. When Chris mentions that during the first years of the Olympics, athletes wouldn't wear any clothes, Owen starts to unbuckle his belt before Chris and everyone else tells him to stop. He then, along with Alejandro and Tyler, offers to compete in the wrestling portion. He bumps Cody clear out of the ring with his "girth.” In retaliation, Sierra climbs on him and leg locks him, choking him. But before Sierra can put Owen completely out of commission, Cody returns from his flight from Owen and Courtney tells him to just not get in the way, also calling him a pip-squeak in the process. As a result of Courtney insulting Sierra's love-interest, Sierra begins choking Courtney and Courtney retaliates by choking back. Eventually, they choke each other out. Then Owen comes in, standing triumphantly over his "victory.” He scores 2 gold medals, which would be Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot's only medals.In The EX-Files, Owen is first seen talking to Tyler and Alejandro in the economy class section about Duncan's relationship with both Courtney and Gwen, stating that Duncan is the only guy in Total Drama history to score two babes in the "Total Drama Babe Olympics." Owen is next seen complaining about the fruit possibly being his last meal, and begins whining about dying. A fart is heard, to which Owen immediately denies it being his doing after the planes lights go out. It is then revealed that Alejandro hypnotized Owen into getting over his fear of flying, but then he states that he also did something else to Owen as well. When team Chris is Really Really Really Really Hot splits up, Owen goes with Duncan, and after watching a bunny get fried by a laser, Owen becomes frightened and almost gives up the challenge. Duncan comes up with a plan to throw rocks to avoid the lasers, but instead of throwing his, Owen runs with it, and ends up getting hit by the laser, and he lands on the other side of the fence and is then sucked into the facility through a vacuum like tube. Owen is next seen in some kind of chamber, in which he starts screaming at the computer system, and the central computer threatens him with torturous devices, he also thinks he is going to have his memory wiped and stating he only wants to remember nachos. Owen isn't seen till much later, when Alejandro accidentally frees him, and he comes out with clown make-up on his face, thinking he lost his memory and crying about he how he won't remember Tyler, Duncan, Alejandro, or Chris. Alejandro then reveals the other hypnosis he put on Owen, which is whenever he says Revenge, Owen gives himself a hyper wedgie, pulling his underwear over his head and begins singing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game'. After getting shocked by an Alien, Alejandro and Duncan carry Owen back to Area 52. Owen is last seen at the elimination ceremony, where he is concerned about Tyler's elimination, until Courtney says revenge and he starts singing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' again.
In Picnic at Hanging Dork, Owen must ride two emus to the second part of the challenge because he is too heavy to ride just one. He is still the last one to finish from his team, but makes it in time to participate in the challenge. When he bungee jumps to get a sheep, he accidentally picks up a dingo instead. He thinks that it's a sheep that had already been sheared, until it attacks him. Owen and his team win the challenge and save themselves from elimination.At the beginning of Sweden Sour, Owen is seen talking to Duncan about Noah in first class, recalling his warning about Alejandro and that Noah had known Alejandro liked Heather. Owen then sadly mentions that he still misses Noah. When Duncan tells Owen that they should respect Noah's, "dying words,” Owen immediately panics, spitting out the cookie he was eating and then lifting Duncan up by his collar and screaming, "When did he DIE!?" in horror. Once Duncan explains that it was just a figure of speech, and that he had simply meant Noah's final words to Owen, Owen calms down, smiling and laughing brokenly in relief. In the confessional, Owen finally realizes that Alejandro is his enemy; and as an enemy, Owen tries to not fart so Alejandro wouldn't be annoyed by him. In the first part of the challenge, Owen compares one of the parts to his team's boat to ribs. To this, Alejandro calls him "an incredibly stupid genius." Duncan tells Owen that Noah was right about Alejandro. When Owen, Duncan, and Alejandro figure out that they are working on a boat, Duncan tells Owen not to mention it to Team Amazon, but he does. After the contestants sing We Built Gwen's Face, Owen can no longer hold in the gas that he'd been holding all day. His fart is so powerful that it breaks the ice they stood on. This actually allows the boat to float to the next part of the challenge. Duncan congratulates Owen on a job well done and mentions how Alejandro earlier called him a "incredibly stupid genius." Alejandro says that it was a bad joke and not everyone can be as funny as Owen. When they must pick a captain for their boat, Alejandro and Duncan elect Owen, who proudly takes on the role. He makes them both talk with "Viking" dialect, which annoys Alejandro. While he leads the war between his ship and Team Amazon's ship, he loses his hat and doesn't want to continue without it, but does anyway after persuasion. When his team runs out of ammo and Team Amazon is about to win, he volunteers to cannonball himself at their ship. This works and Chris announces Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot as the winners. In the first class cabin, when Owen says that he promised not to vote out Alejandro. Duncan asks him "What would Noah do?" This strikes a nerve with Owen and he realizes that he should vote out Alejandro next.
In Niagara Brawls, Owen is paired up with Blaineley for the wedding-themed challenge. She acts bitter throughout the episode, but Owen is friendly anyway and tries to cheer her up. In the end, Alejandro convinces Sierra, Duncan, and Heather to vote him off due to his popularity being a threat. When he gets stuck on his way out the plane's exit door, he asks Alejandro for a little help. An infuriated Alejandro, desperate to see him go, angrily kicks him out of the plane, only for Owen to accidentally fart in his face right before he flies out. In an exclusive scene, Owen is shown to have landed safely, but on a plate of a hungry shark.
In Rapa Phooey!, Alejandro searched a stone moai shaped like Owen's head. After finding several food items in the moai, Alejandro angrily claims that Owen "still tortures him with his uselessness," until the moai burps and one of Alejandro's green eggs comes out of the stone.Owen is shown to support Cody in Hawaiian Style. He was asked by Bridgette to help Blaineley surf for Heather's "team,” but he did not want to. He feels that it would go against Cody, but he eventually gives in. Owen reveals he is afraid that Heather would hurt him if he did not help. Owen, while singing I'm Winning This, helps Blaineley through the surfing challenge, but loses to Courtney.
Owen had little dialogue in Hawaiian Punch but openly admitted that Alejandro and Heather admitting their feelings for each other was beautiful. He also used one of the anti-pineapple signs to scratch his back. Later, Owen was shown running away from the lava with everyone else, as well as laughing when Chris' boat sank. In Heather's ending, he cheers when Heather defeats Alejandro with the rest of the cast.
In Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, Owen appears on the yacht with the other twenty-one original contestants and the two newcomers, Alejandro and Sierra. He is seen dancing at the stern next to Sierra and Cody, while Izzy hangs upside-down from the edge nearby. When the yacht passes right by the Dock of Shame, Owen is heard yelling "NO!" He then appears in his own, separate cameo much later in the episode, when he reveals that he jumped off the boat and swam to the island. He tried to ask Chris why the boat carrying he and his friends isn't stopping and was shocked to find out that they are not competing this season as they have outlived their usefulness. Chef then places a bomb on Owen’s face, causing him to run around in panic before it explodes and sends him flying off.
Owen appears in the finale, The Final Wreck-ening, and helps Chris fill balloons to hold the eliminated contestants by eating beans and filling the balloons with his farts. At the very end of the episode, Owen is seen water-skiing away from the sunken island being pulled by a boat full of animals.

Owen's parents (both of whom are obese) send a video log to him at camp just like the other campers in the Final Five of how much they miss them. His father says that he was very proud when Owen burped the entire alphabet in the talent show try-outs, and his mother says that she sent him a care package full of gravy. His mother resembles Sadie. In The Aftermath: III, his mother appears on television and talks to Owen.Total Drama Island, Owen seemed to be no more than a supporting character in the original series. He was briefly seen once in the promo with some other campers in the shower stalls, but only his feet were shown while the rest of him was covered in steam. Most of the basic elements of Owen's design are present in his Camp TV form, but there are some differences. While he is still shown to be large and obese, Owen's shirt had torn sleeves with the words "Keg me" in place of the Canadian maple leaf. Owen's hair is slightly longer as well, curving upward on each side, and his chin seems to be slightly more muscular, but the basic face shape is still the same.

After DJ was eliminated, Owen became upset that the quality of the cooking would return to the way it used to be, even though he never complained about it before; although, he might have simply preferred DJ's cooking. However, in Masters of Disasters, he eats Chef's food regardless and goes as far as taking Beth and Justin's helpings.
