Welcome 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 Raised By Wolves, and we're going to start our first week by looking at The Geek, Cody!


Cody debuts to Total Drama with the rest of the first generation cast, in Total Drama Island. He quickly solidifies his place as a ladies man, flirting with many of the girls. He believes he's a casanova, but he really just comes off as a cute little brother to most of the girls. He quickly develops a crush on Gwen, who he chases after for a few episodes. When he realizes that Gwen would be happier with Trent, he lets go of his personal ambition in favor of letting her be with Trent. In his own words, "If she's happy, I'm happy".

While Cody doesn't qualify for Total Drama Action, he does return as a "fan favorite" for Total Drama World Tour. He quickly learns that he has an obsessive stalker in Sierra, and he spends the entire season trying to shake her off or learn to deal with her. He is also the cause of a few of his team's victories, such as his quick thinking Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan and his skills in Greece's Pieces. Cody becomes one of the top-tier contestants in this season, making it to the final three, but unfortunately becoming victim to Alejandro in Hawaiian Punch and losing his chance at the million.


Cody is one of the cutest AND coolest Total Drama characters to date. I don't know what it is about this guy, but he's just so...charming. Guess it's another thing Sierra and I have in common. He's cool, smart and is a really stand-up guy to Gwen, especially when he hooked her up with Trent because that's what she wanted, and he wanted her to be happy. Cody was easily one of the most entertaining characters in the show, although I know not everyone thinks so. His performance in Total Drama Island was pretty good. Remember his crazy awesome electro-ball thing in Dodgebrawl? Wow. Not to mention peeing his pants in The Sucky Outdoors, poor guy goes through awkward stuff, I can totally relate to that, which adds to his appeal. He gets more focus in Up the Creek, having amazing interactions with Gwen and Trent, and even saving Trent and Lindsay's lives (sorta). I feel SO bad for him when he is taken out due to injury in Paintball Deer Hunter, I just wanted to give him a hug and help him.

I didn't think much of it when he returned in Total Drama World Tour, especially since we had contestants like Ezekiel and Tyler returning. However, he quickly amazed me with his resourcefulness in Super Happy Crazy Fun Time Japan, his witty lines, his interactions with Gwen, Heather and best of all, Sierra. I felt SO bad for Cody for having to go through all that crap with Sierra in the season, like, wow I would not be able to go through that. His whole EpiPen thing in The Am-AH-Zon Race and his efforts to fix things with Sierra in Can't Help Falling in Louvre were amazing comic relief. He was mostly a comedy character, but sometimes he really did shine through and have amazing moments, like when he wins the challenge for his team (again!) in Greece's Pieces, or helps his team get through the land mines in The EX-Files. His conflict with Duncan in Picnic at Hanging Dork was SO much fun to watch, and I love how he (indirectly) gets Duncan's love interest eliminated. It was so sweet of him to build Gwen's face in Sweden. I'm actually really proud of Cody for making it to the Final 3, it's so cool to see these out-of-focus characters be given screentime like this. Cody is, and probably always will be, one of my favorite characters in the Total Drama franchise.

Best Moment: Giving up on himself, and picking himself back up when he finds out how dedicated his fans are.
