Zoey, labeled The Indie Chick, was a camper on Total Drama: Revenge of the Island as a member of the Mutant Maggots. She returned as a contestant on Total Drama All-Stars as a member of the Heroic Hamsters, and was also one of the finalists of the season.
Coming to Camp Wawanakwa from a small town, Zoey is an optimistic, kind-hearted girl who is exceedingly easy to get along with. Unfortunately for her, she is also lonely, as she is an only child who did not grow up with any friends. Her goal of joining Total Drama was to change that, particularly meeting people who share her love of indie theater and retro clothing. She is shown to be overly concerned about little details about herself in Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, wishing to make a good first impression on the cast. She is very apologetic and has a compulsive need of seeking the approval of others. Her strive to see the best in people can lead her to be easily fooled by antagonists. Zoey values her relationships with the others and, even when interacting with someone she doesn't like, will validate their safety and well-being when appropriate. On the other hand, one should not take her kindness for granted. If pushed enough, she will release a darker side usually kept under control. "Commando Zoey" is a brave, revenge driven, and highly skilled, but is also selfish; this alter ego first emerges at her breaking point in Eat, Puke and Be Wary. The turn is only temporary, but Zoey maintains her impressive athletic abilities into Total Drama All-Stars. She accepts Mike even with the knowledge of his Multiple Personality Disorder, and is as protective of him as he is of her.
Zoey makes her debut in Bigger! Badder! Brutal-er!, and immediately grows an attraction to Mike on their way to Camp Wawanakwa. In her first confessional, Zoey mentions that she is a big fan of Total Drama and hopes make new friends. When she arrived on the island, she has a conversation with Dawn who is able to know that Zoey is an only child, who has an extremely lonely life. She is put on the Mutant Maggots, along with Mike, and they quickly start to bond. For several episodes, the two of them would get along well but despite their growing attraction, Mike is afraid that Zoey will think of him differently if she find out about his secret.
Things become complicated between her and Mike when Anne Maria starts to fall for one of Mike's personalities in Ice Ice Baby. Upon seeing Anne Maria and "Mike" kiss in Finders Creepers, Zoey become heartbroken. Tension between her with Anne Maria and Mike rises in the next episode as Anne Maria keep accusing Zoey for attempting to throw their team's challenge. It would eventually become physical between them and Zoey leaves, believing that "Mike" had chosen who he wanted to be. Mike would try to make things up with her often complimenting her but Zoey doesn't buy it and angrily tells Mike in the confessional to "pick a side."
Her "seemingly friendly" relationship with Scott started in Runaway Model, when he pretends to be devastated about Dawn's elimination. Zoey falls for this and comfort him, believing that he a nicer person than everone thinks. When Scott is transferred to her team, Zoey occasionally defends him whenever Mike and Cameron insults him or shows distrusts towards him. In The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, Zoey begins to distrusts both Mike and Cameron as she finds them being dishonest ot her, as Cameron is trying to hide Mike's secret from her. At one point in the episode, Scott reveals to her that he had found the immunity idol and trusts her to not tell anyone. Meanwhile, Dakota tries to befriend Zoey, seeing her the only person she is willing to get close with due to her new appearance. However, the situation becomes awkward for Zoey and she votes her off due to their friendship being a "hazard to her health."In Grand Chef Auto, Zoey has problems throughout the challenge and tries to get Mike to help her but instead of helping her, Mike helps Scott instead, further angering her. Towards the end of the challenge, Zoey finally loses her patience with Mike after seeing him becoming intrested with Anne Maria again. At Mt. McLean, Zoey confronts Mike that whatever they had is over but become worried when she sees him acting weird and started beating himself. Cameron accidentally reveals Mike's secret to her and with this knowledge, Zoey tells Mike not to give up, giving him the strength to defeat his alternate personalities, After waking up, Mike aplogize to Zoey for not telling the truth to her and she accepts. That night, Mike is eliminated from the competition. Before he leaves, Mike gives Zoey a medallion and as they area about to share a kiss, Chris activates the Hurl of Shame, launching Mike away from the island.
With his true nature expose to her, Zoey no longer trust Scott and vows to take him down. Throughout the next two episodes, the two occasionally get on each other nerves and attempts sabotage each other. In Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon, Zoey manage to gain control of the mutant goat and order them to attack Scott. Their conflict reaches a climax in Eat, Puke, and Be Wary, where she and Cameron teams up into voting Scott off. During the challenge, Zoey become insane after Chef Hatchet shot her into a ravine and Mike's medallion broke during the fall. As a result, she takes on a more aggressive persona known as Commando Zoey and set up traps to ambush Chef. One of her traps prevents Scott from winning the challenge and as a result, he is voted off that night with Zoey giving him one last insult in the confessional.
Cameron and Zoey continue to team up in The Enchanted Franken-Forest in order to reach the finale together. However, Zoey, still under her Commando Zoey persona, views Cameron as a liability and often acted cold towards her. In addition to this, Zoey constantly mention of abandoning him should he ever slow her down. After retrieving the flower from Larry, Zoey quickly make her way to the finish line but then noticed Cameron has been eaten by the mutant flower. For a moment, she is conflicted if she should continue with the challenge or to save him but ultimately, she choose to save her friend. Zoey jumps into Larry's mouth and begin to beat him up from the inside This gives Lightning the opportunity to retrieve the flower and reach the finish line. That night, Zoey was voted off by Lightning as he sees her as a stronger competitor than Cameron.In Brain vs. Brawn: The Ultimate Showdown, Zoey is seen staring romantically at Mike while Anne Maria glares at them. She is also one of the many people who cheers for Cameron when he defeats Lightning in his ending and wins the one-million dollars in his ending. In Lightning's ending, she was disappointed that Lightning won the season.
Zoey returns for Total Drama All-Stars and is placed in the Heroic Hamsters along with Mike, Cameron, Sam, Sierra, Courtney and Lindsay. During the first challenge, she protects Mike from Fang and two other sharks, stating that it's her turn to help Mike, who had always helped her last season. When she got her key in the challenge, she and Lindsay got the lead for the first time. That lead didn't last long though when she had the wrong key to the spa-hotel and Alejandro and Jo passed them with the right key allowing the Villainous Vultures to win the first challenge. Although her team lost, Zoey is safe that night and Lindsay is eliminated.In Evil Dread, Zoey is awakened in the loser cabin by Courtney, and eventually covered by their "breakfast", courtesy of Chef. Before their challenge, she plotted with her teammates to divide their areas into sections and have each person dig in one. During the challenge, when Mike was knocked out by Scott, she ran up to him to see if he was alright, in this case, he was. When they put their sculpture together and were missing a piece, Zoey found the last piece and threw it to their statue, making the Heroes win their first challenge. Zoey is last seen with her team in the peanut gallery in the episode, but hears Mike (while as Mal) speak, but does not realize what he said.
In Saving Private Leechball, Zoey is seen in the McLean Spa Hotel with her teammates, eating breakfast. While Courtney complained to the butler about her breakfast, her, Mike, Cameron and Sierra hid food from their feast so they can feed Sam for when he returns to the island. During the challenge, Zoey uses her jumping ability to climb trees so she can see where their crates are. She was able to eliminate Alejandro in the challenge and later eliminated Jo to win the challenge for her team. She is last seen in the Peanut Gallery trying to comfort Sam after he found out his GameGuy was broken, and was shocked to see Duncan and Courtney switching teams.
In Food Fright, Zoey and the Heroic Hamsters throws a welcome party for Duncan. During the challenge, the Hamsters were behind on eating the rest of their dish, so Sam tags Zoey out of the challenge so he could allow his team to catch up. Eventually Sam was able to win it for his team. At the elimination ceremony, the Hamsters were shocked to find out though Sam actually didn't complete the challenge, keeping some food behind in case he had to go back to Exile on Boney Island. The Hamsters then had to vote someone off and that person was Sam.In Moon Madness, Zoey was eating her dinner with her team when she saw Cameron fall off the stairs and broke his glasses. Zoey then reveals in the confessional that she saw Mike pull Cameron's leg, causing him to trip. Zoey then starts to worry if Mike also was the one who broke Sam's gaming device and Sierra's phone. Before the challenge started, Zoey whispered to Cameron that she saw Mike trip him. When the Blue Harvest Moon began, Mike's alternate personality Mal takes over, but he pretends to still be Mike to fool his teammates. When the team reaches the bridge, Mal is about to hit Zoey with a club when the rest of the Hamsters appear. Cameron asks where has Mike been, but Mal says a bear chased him off course. Zoey questions Mike again because the Moon should have made the animals personalities become their opposite, so a bear shouldn't of attacked him. When the Hamsters are about to win the challenge, the Blue Harvest Moon ends and Mike returns, confused on where he is. Zoey yells to him to cross the finish line, but the Villainous Vultures already won. At elimination Zoey is shocked to see Cameron, who wanted to be out because of Sierra's obsession with him, be switched to the Villains team instead.
Zoey offers Duncan an apple in No One Eggspects The Spanish Opposition and is happy that he has finally started to trust her. She is scared of Mike because of his recent behavior but still loves him and wants to help. Zoey and Mike work together during the egg hunt where she distracts Larry and the both of them find a nest full of eggs. Chris deems Zoey as a personal winner and she will receive an advantage in the next episode.In Suckers Punched, Zoey has a talk with Duncan about his suspicions of Mike. She at first doesn't believe him, but then starts to realize he is telling the truth. During the challenge, Zoey doesn't have to fight because of the prize she got in the previous challenge. As Mike is fighting with Izzy, she is concerned about how Mike ruthlessly defeats her. At the elimination ceremony, she and Duncan discuss about Mal once again, stopping when Mal asks what they are talking about.
At the beginning of You Regatta Be Kidding Me, Zoey admires Duncan’s graffiti, mistaking it for a bunny. After the teams are merged, she decides to stick with Cameron until the finale. They also allow Mike to join upon his request. Unlike Cameron, who clearly expects the worst, Zoey has since dismissed Duncan's theory about Mal being the original personality. She consults her handmade tarot cards, and gets some rather strange results. She shakes them off, concluding that it was the fault of her improvised images. At the start of the boat race, Zoey and Cameron try to catch up with Mike, but he leaves them with the Boat of Losers. Then they try to use the powerboat, but it sinks due to Mal tampering with it. So they end up using the raft with Duncan and Scott. To catch up with the other contestants, they use Scott as bait to lure Fang and use the shark as their motor, though Zoey thinks this idea is crazy. With Fang’s help, they get ahead of Gwen and Courtney, though Duncan leaves them to destroy Chris’s mansion with a dynamite. When they catch up to Mike, Zoey wonders who they will run into. To be sure, she grabs a rod and leaves herself in the water filled with piranhas. Her cries of help pulls the real Mike briefly from his subconscious before Mal takes over again. He reluctantly saves her so she and Cameron won’t suspect him. However when Cameron starts to lose his hold on Scott, Zoey yells at Mike to go back and help, but he pretends not to hear and they keep going forward, ending up in third place. At the elimination ceremony, Zoey is shocked when she finds that the votes were unanimous for Cameron, saying that she did not vote for him.In Zeek And Ye Shall Find, Zoey and Cameron question on how he was nearly voted off. Mal suggests that they look in the cabin for evidence, but Cameron finds the evidence on Mike’s bed, making him furious. Zoey and Mike try to reason with Cameron, but he throws a fit and runs outside. Zoey tells Mal that she’ll talk to Cameron. The next day, she joins with everyone in the monitor room where they see Chris explaining the challenge to celebrate the one hundredth episode of Total Drama. Suddenly, they spot Ezekiel and try to warn Chris, but he is captured and Chef yells that the new challenge is to find Chris. Zoey assumes that they should investigate the mines because that was where Ezekiel lived last year. When the challenge begins, she goes with Cameron, Mal, and Gwen, and they find large holes that lead to the mines. Gwen accidentally falls through one and Zoey chases after her, leaving Cameron and Mal behind. She finds Gwen all scared due to her claustrophobia, but she calms the Goth girl down and they continue on together. However, Zoey is later captured by Ezekiel and is the first one locked up inside his cage. When Scott and Courtney join her in captivity, she becomes frightened of their major breakup, confessing that this wasn't the worst "party" she has ever been to. When Alejandro is later captured, they are attacked by Ezekiel who throws fudge at them. Zoey hopes that her friends are having better luck. When Mal joins them, Zoey is shocked to learn that Alejandro didn't help Cameron. They are all rescued after Gwen saves Chris and wins the challenge. Later that night, Zoey is shocked that Cameron has to leave the competition due to injuries. She bids him farewell, saying that she’ll miss him.
In The Obsta-Kill Kourse, Zoey consults Courtney about her relationship with Scott, promising not to tell Gwen about her kiss with Cameron. She is later told by Mal that Alejandro let Cameron fall, which ensures her vote for Alejandro. Before the challenge, she passes the message to Gwen, which guarantees the Goth girl's vote for Alejandro. She then jokes that at least the challenge will not be underground, causing them to giggle. Throughout the challenge, Zoey sticks with Mal and they help with each other. However at the ropes, Zoey falls from her rope, which is made of dog hair. Picking another rope, she asks Gwen if she is allergic to dogs, explaining about the dog-hair rope. They then giggle about how gross the rope is. At the "snapping bars" Zoey watches as Mal summons Svetlana to shake Alejandro off. She questions this, saying that Mike couldn't access his other personalities. At the "Duck and Cover", Alejandro tries to warn Zoey about Mal, but he is struck by a leech and Zoey runs ahead. When she is later attacked by Chef, Mal helps her get rid of the leeches and they continue on together to the zip line. While Alejandro isn't able to tell Zoey directly, she becomes suspicious after the former refers to Mike as "Mal". Although she goes together with Mal, she goes on her own while he stays behind to deal with Alejandro. Zoey wins the challenge, and gains entry into the hotel with someone of her choosing. She chooses Mal because he helped her win the challenge. When Alejandro is voted off, he tries to warn Zoey about Mal, but she cannot understand when he says that "the truth is in the art".
In Sundae Muddy Sundae, Zoey comes across Mal tearing through the boys’ bedroom to find the DVD that Alejandro hid. She confesses that he is becoming weirder and wishes that she can look into his head to see what is going on. After Gwen returns from Boney Island, Zoey friendly welcomes her back and continues to the challenge with Mal. During the challenge, Zoey asks Mal why he exposed Courtney with her chart earlier in front of everyone, saying that it was mean. When he reasons that Courtney had it coming, Zoey confesses that it wasn't like Mike to enjoy someone else’s misery, even Courtney. She then ponders over Alejandro’s last words, still not understanding the message. On the cliff, after she is left behind by Mal, Zoey rejects Courtney’s offer for an alliance after what she did to Gwen. After getting the ice cream, she reaches the swamp but gets her foot stuck in the mud. As Courtney mocks her and leaves her behind, she wonders if the CIT is the "greater evil" Alejandro warned her about. When an alligator attacks her, Zoey throws some mud into its mouth, enabling her to free her foot and get her cherry. Reaching the main lodge, Zoey quietly gets her peanuts while the Drama Machine is busy attacking Courtney. At the chocolate pool, she is told by Mal that she needs to hurry and beat Gwen or they are both in jeopardy. Zoey promises and says that they will both be in the hotel if she wins. After kissing Mal on the cheek, she quickly gets her chocolate fudge and runs off while evading the fire-breathing flower. Although she and the others are beaten by Courtney in the race, Chris makes everyone eat their own sundaes. Zoey manages to eat all of hers first, thus winning the challenge and immunity for a second time in a row. But she is shock when Courtney yells that Mal sabotaged the chocolate fudge. As Courtney is flushed, Zoey is relieved that she is gone, but is saddened when Chris forbids her from taking anyone of her choosing to the hotel. Later, Zoey finds herself surrounded by Chris’ portraits in the girls' bedroom when Chris suddenly barges in and signs off.In The Bold and the Booty-ful, Zoey notices an abnormal shiny spot in a Chris portrait in the hotel. After banging the Chris Portrait, she discovers that it is a DVD and decides to watch it in the monitor room. She learned who Mal is and was shocked at how long Mike has not been in control. Before the challenge Mal tries to convince her that he is Mike but Zoey's suspicions are confirmed when he said bracelet instead of necklace. Zoey is determined to win the challenge since she wants to bring Mike back. She does win since she was the first person to bring back the treasure Chris assigned and decided to take Mike to the finale despite knowing who he is due to a promise. Before the final challenge in The Final Wreck-ening, Zoey looks at the DVD of Mal's evil deeds, still shocked that Mike was under his control. She tells Mal to cut his Mike act, and is saddened when he tells her that Mike will never come back. In the challenge, she uses a bow and arrow to free Cameron and Gwen, who later help her with the Moats of Doom. For the toxic moat, Gwen and Zoey row using Cameron (who is in his bubble) as a makeshift boat, then catches him as his bubble pops. Zoey still hopes that Mike is in there as he pole vaults the moat, but Gwen snaps her out of it. She runs across a ladder to avoid the lava moat. As Mal tackles her in the swamp water moat, she was saved from Fang by a returning Mike, and her doubts are erased as he asked where his necklace was, prompting her to cheer in the confessional and share her first kiss with Mike. They climb on their own to the final level and race towards the sword in the stone. Whilst racing Zoey and Mike are under fire from Chef's meatball bazooka, Zoey hides behind a rock while Mike uses Svetlana's agility to evade the shots. Chris then flies by in his jetpack and criticizes Chef's shooting, promoting him to shoot the host.
In Mike's ending, as Zoey tells Chef he's doing his best, this gives Mike the chance to reach the sword first, where he pulls the it out of the stone, winning the season.
In Zoey's ending, Mike agrees with Chris's comment which leads Chef to target him. This gives Zoey the opportunity to run ahead and pull the sword from the stone, winning the season.
In the final scene from both endings, the island starts to sink. Mike, Gwen, Cameron and Zoey are seen on the roof of a building floating away, she and the others angrily tell Mike that they do not want to compete again.
Zoey was another character whose design changed completely since the original concept of Total Drama Reloaded. In her original design, she had dark brown hair that reached just past her shoulders, and had a bright red bow in it (a trait that was recycled into Staci's current design). She also wore a pair of horn-rimmed glasses and had a mole on her left cheek. Her shirt was a short red blouse with large floral rims on the sleeves and collar (a trait recycled and given to Anne Maria). She wore short black shorts with a button on them, and wore a pair of black high-heeled sandals. Since then, the original design was scrapped and she was given a design similar to Dakota's original design, with a similar body shape, red hair with a flower in it, and outfit. The differences being that her hair now has two small pigtails in it; she has a small black choker necklace, earrings, and several red wristbands the mole is no longer there; her shirt is now a short red tube top; her pants are longer, tanner, and rolled up at the bottom of each pant leg; and her sandals are now a lighter tan, lower, and with less straps around her ankles.
