Carson is labeled as The Joker in Total Drama School. He was placed on the Screaming Rulers team, and ended up winning the season. He returned for Total Drama: Tiki Jungle, and was placed on the Terrible Tikis team.


Carson is the most popular kid at his school. Why, you may ask? He's not extremely athletic or good-looking. It's all because of his great sense of humor. Carson isn't a target for bullies, because they just stay away from him because he can smooth-talk his way out of a fight. He can even make friends easily just by saying something funny. Carson's slogan for the school election was "Pick me, and I'll make every day in school fun." Of course, he was elected President. Carson really likes girls. They like him back, but not in a romantic way. It's just because of his hilariousness. Carson joined Total Drama School to make some new friends. Even if he loses, he's sure to make a joke about it.

Audition Tape

Carson is in the hallway at school with his friend Connor. Connor says, "Carson wants to be on this show. I think he should. He's totally cool, and watch him. He'll win this thing. Trust me." Connor then leaves, and Carson smiles for the camera.


  • Carson was meant to be an inoffensive, somewhat funny but generally mediocre character from the start since I wanted my first winner to be an "everyman" type.
  • When writing for Carson, I wanted him to be somewhat Owen-esque, as in just likable and detached from basically everything, but he ended up being far less likable than I had intended. As a result, I booted him early in Tiki Jungle.
