Total Drama All-Stars is the first half of the fifth season of Total Drama, with the second half being Total Drama: Pahkitew Island.


Fourteen of Total Drama's most memorable contestants from past seasons return to the island, to compete in some of the most daunting challenges from past seasons... with a special twist. This season's cast is comprised of Alejandro, Cameron, Courtney, Duncan, Gwen, Heather, Jo, Lightning, Lindsay, Mike, Sam, Scott, Sierra, and Zoey. Back at Camp Wawanakwa, the fourteen contestants are divided into two teams, the Heroic Hamsters and the Villainous Vultures, and will have to square off for the grand prize of one million dollars. One by one, each contestant will be eliminated and sent home on the Flush of Shame, until there is only one all-star left standing.
