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 comforts him, believing that he is a nicer person than everyone thinks. When Scott is transferred to her team, Zoey occasionally defends him whenever Mike and Cameron insult him or shows distrust towards him. In The Treasure Island of Dr. McLean, Zoey begins to distrust both Mike and Cameron as she finds them being dishonest to 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 says that he trusts that she will 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 flirting with Anne Maria again. At Mt. Chrismore, Zoey goes to confront Mike, about to declare that whatever they were before is now over. However, she immediately becomes concerned when he starts acting strangely and starts beating himself up. 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 apologizes to Zoey for not telling her the truth earlier as Zoey accepts the apology. That night, Mike is eliminated from the competition. Before he leaves, Mike gives Zoey a medallion and as they are about to share a kiss, Chris activates the Hurl of Shame, launching Mike away from the island.
With his true nature exposed to her, Zoey no longer trusts Scott and vows to take him down. Throughout the next two episodes, the two occasionally get on each others' nerves and attempt to sabotage each other. In Up, Up And Away In My Pitiful Balloon, Zoey manages to gain control of the mutant goat and orders them to attack Scott. Their conflict reaches a climax in Eat, Puke, and Be Wary, where she and Cameron team up into voting Scott off. During the challenge, Zoey becomes insane after Chef Hatchet shoots her into a ravine and Mike's medallion breaks during the fall. As a result, she takes on a more aggressive persona known as Commando Zoey and sets 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 acts cold towards her. In addition to this, Zoey constantly mentions 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 chooses 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 on the Heroic Hamsters, along with Mike, Cameron, Sam, Sierra, Courtney, and Lindsay. She has become a powerhouse since last season, and puts on an impressive display of physical and mental skill during the first four episodes. She thinks on her feet to save those in danger, concocts a successful strategy for a challenge, and uses careful body movements to make Jo's leech attack backfire.
By Moon Madness, Mike's strange behavior as of late begins to make Zoey suspicious. She witnesses him tripping Cameron, and believes it may be linked to Sam's broken GameGuy and Sierra's destroyed smartphone. Concerned about Cameron, she reveals to him that Mike is the one who broke his glasses. When confronted, Mike confesses he has been experiencing problems summoning his personalities. Zoey's doubts continue during the challenge, when she notices "Mike's" odd behavior. She is separated from her team throughout the episode, but they meet up at the bridge which they need to cross to complete the challenge. Unfortunately, they narrowly miss out on victory and the Villainous Vultures just manage to beat them.
In the next two episodes, Zoey maintains that she still loves Mike and wants to help him, but at the same time is frightened of him. She manages to find a friend in the newest Hamster and Mike's former juvie mate, Duncan. Duncan warns Zoey how Mike, previously known as "Mal" at the time of their detention, was a dangerous inmate who had a habit of causing trouble just for fun. He discloses his suspicions that Mal is an alternate personality of Mike's, and that he is responsible for damaging the other contestants' various belongings. Zoey at first laughs this off, but starts to reconsider when she witnesses Izzy's brutal defeat at the hands of Mal. Zoey and Duncan later contemplate the possibility that Mal is the host personality, while Mike is merely an alter.
At the beginning of You Regatta Be Kidding Me, Zoey continues to aggravate Duncan's insecurities about becoming a "hero," and forms an alliance with Cameron and Mike. 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. Zoey sticks with Cameron throughout the challenge, and the two are required to join forces with Duncan and Scott, who hitch a ride on their raft. She helps the boys use Scott as bait so that they may use Fang to their advantage, although she voices against this "crazy" plan. She later tries to verify that Mike is in control of his body by putting herself in danger. Mike does manage to reclaim control, but only briefly as Mal reverts it immediately. From hereon, Zoey rides with Mal, who does save her, but only to prevent suspicion. Zoey pleads Mal to go back for Cameron and Scott, cries which go ignored. She later voices her support for Cameron when it is believed that he has been unanimously voted out of the competition.
In the next episode, she and Mal attempt to calm a distraught Cameron, who believes someone is out to get him. Despite his outburst, Cameron later says that he still trusts Zoey, along with Mike. Zoey chooses to partner with the boys to look for Chris, but ends up diving after Gwen when she falls into the mine. She calms her down from her panic attack and the two continue onwards. However, Zoey is not present for long, as she is captured by Ezekiel seconds later. She spends the rest of the episode locked in a cage with the others until the elimination ceremony, where she bids the injured Cameron a heartfelt goodbye.
Zoey seals her vote for Alejandro when Mal tells her that he let Cameron fall in The Obsta-Kill Kourse. She then relays this message to her new friend Gwen, who, a friend of Cameron herself, agrees to take revenge on him. Zoey sticks with Mal throughout the challenge, and although he keeps his cover, she observes various holes in what he has told her. For instance, the fact that Mike claimed he couldn't switch personalities, and yet Svetlana makes an appearance on the hanging bars. Zoey has an allergic reaction on the ropes, revealing that she has an intolerance to dog hair. Alejandro later tries to warn her about Mal, but when he is shot by a leech courtesy of Chef, Zoey takes the opportunity to flee. However, Alejandro does manage to make Zoey wary of Mike when he refers to him as "Mal" on the zip line. She goes with Mal on the zip line, but ends up crossing the finish line and winning the challenge by herself. This is due to Mal clinging to Alejandro in an attempt to extract information about the DVD of incriminating footage he hid. Zoey choose Mal to stay at the spa hotel with her. As Alejandro is flushed after being eliminated, she absorbs his warning: "The truth is in the art." Unfortunately, she doesn't understand what he means.
Zoey continues to ponder Alejandro's words in Sundae Muddy Sundae. Despite losing her trust in Mike, she again partners with him during the challenge. Realizing that exposing Courtney's elimination chart is out of character for Mike, she confronts him on the matter. Mal says in return that they need to stick together at this point in the game, as Courtney, Gwen, and Scott's unofficial alliance has them outnumbered. Unlike the last time, Zoey and Mal do not stay together, as Mal elects to instead compete against challenge leader, Gwen. Zoey is able to handle herself without him, managing to save herself whenever she gets into trouble. She often clashes with Courtney, who, after being rejected by Zoey for an alliance, makes no effort to help her. This makes Zoey consider if Courtney was the "greater evil" Alejandro was referring to. After being motivated by Mal to win the challenge, she vows to bring them both to the spa hotel if she wins. She then leaves to compete against Gwen. Zoey ends up finishing her sundae first in the eating contest, securing her place in the spa hotel yet again. She elects to bring Mal, but Chris stops her from doing so for an unknown reason.
Zoey at last learns the truth about Mal in The Bold and the Booty-ful. After finally finding the DVD of incriminating footage in a Chris painting, she plays it in the control room and watches all of his misdeeds. At this point, any trust in him she has remaining is gone. She is determined to win the challenge and, despite its difficulty, does. She is awarded the opportunity to choose who she competes against in the finale. She wants to bring Mike, not Mal, but selects him anyway. She believes that abandoning Mike now will eliminate any possibility of him reclaiming control of his body.Zoey informs Mal that he can "drop the act" in The Final Wreck-ening, where he gladly drops the Mike charade for good. She is saddened when he tells her that Mike is gone forever. Zoey tries to remain hopeful, but at the same time has her doubts. In the challenge, she selects a bow and arrow, and uses it to free Cameron and Gwen who become her helpers in the Moats of Doom challenge. 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 is briefly distracted by her concern for Mike's safety. However, Gwen and Cameron both attempt to snap her out of it, reminding her that Mike is gone and she has no reason to be worried. She avoids the lava moat with a ladder. Then, at the swamp water moat, Mal tackles her and tries to drown her. It is at this moment that Mike returns. She validates this with Mike's statement about her necklace, which Mal incorrectly called a bracelet previously. The couple share their first kiss, and tease each other about how they will win the prize money. At the final level, the two are under fire by Chef's meatball bazooka. They evade the shots and Chris criticizes Chef's aim. In Zoey's ending, Mike distracts Chef enough that she goes unnoticed in extracting the sword, winning the season. In Mike's ending, Zoey distracts Chef when she tells Chris that he is doing his best. In both endings, Zoey, Mike, Gwen, and Cameron float on the roof of a cabin as the island sinks. She agrees with Gwen and Cameron against Mike that they should never 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. Zoey also seemed to have a tongue piercing.
