This season is the follow-up to the first season, Total Drama Island. Here, fourteen Canadian teens (plus Courtney who debuts later on in the season) are sent to a dilapidated film-lot to compete for $1 million in a send-up of Survivor. Each week, they compete for invincibility in challenges based on movie genres (sci-fi, superhero, heist, fairy tale, etc.). Those who survive are gifted with a Golden Chris Award at the elimination ceremony, while the competitor unlucky enough to be voted off takes a walk down the red carpet and gets driven away in the lame-ousine. As before, the action is shared between the challenges, the competitors' downtime and their confessionals (this time in the make-up trailer). Interspersed with the actual competition are episodes of Total Drama Aftermath, where the hosts, Geoff and Bridgette, comment on the latest action and the losers share their stories.
