Welcome back to Character Appreciation, a blog series that will run for the whole year alongside Project 10. Each week we'll take a look at one Total Drama character, what we like and dislike about them, how they've grown, and what we hope to see from them in the future. I'm Glenn31, and this week, we're looking at The Queen Bee, Heather!


Over the years, Heather has become one of, if not the most popular characters in the entire franchise because of the fact that she IS Total Drama! Having been one of the few characters to appear in four seasons, we've seen Heather grow and develop from the mean girl who stepped onto the dock in the very first episode, to the slightly less mean girl we see at the end of All-Stars.

In Total Drama Island, Heather was the show's very first antagonist, and she certainly gave her successors something to live up to. Though not a complete strategic mastermind, Heather managed to eliminate most of her competition and make it all the way to the final 3, where it was her own vanity that caused her ultimate downfall.

Heather began to grow a heart in the second season, where the consequences of her actions left her isolated from the rest of the cast. Though not the main villain anymore, Heather still had her moments, and when she was eliminated she found and unlikely friend in Leshawna. Though she wasn't a big focus this time around, Heather still managed to grow and develop as a character.

World Tour was where we got to see another side of Heather. Becoming an unlikely protagonist, Heather found herself up against Arch-Villain Alejandro in a bitter rivalry. Though she was still the sassy mean girl from the first season, Heather found most of the cast backing her corner when the finale rolled around and was overjoyed to be seen as "the good guy".

Heather's short appearance in All-Stars didn't do very much for her character. We see her hidden regrets for what happened to Alejandro at the end of the third season, as well as the fact that she still has feelings for him. By the end of the season, the status of their relationship becomes just that little bit less ambiguous.


Ok, anyone who knows me knows that I adore Heather. When I first started watching the show way back in 2009 I actually couldn't stand her because of how mean and bossy she was. By the time I got to the end of Action I started to like her again, and watching World Tour was what made me finally realise how much I loved her. Looking back at Island, I now see that she's nothing short of iconic and I can't believe I used to not like her. I was a bit disappointed how she got very little focus in All-Stars, but I guess every season can't be hers. I hope she returns in the new season and we get to see more of her relationship with Alejandro, and maybe bring back her friendship with Leshawna?
