|Fear||Failing a Test, Losing Control|
Diana has always been the smartest. From the beginning, she was the first to know the square peg didn't go in the round hole with the other toddlers at daycare. In Kindergarten, she could trace her letters quicker than everyone else. However, there was always a lot of pressure on her to be the biggest and the best. One day in high school, while taking a test 6 grades ahead in math, she cracked. Nobody could see it at the time, nobody could hear it -- but it happened. Ever since, she's been prone to sudden bipolar fits and changes in moods that nobody can predict. She auditioned for Total Drama Jamaica for money to help her fix her problem, and leftover money for publicity about her smarts.
Diana stood in front of the camera. "Hi!" She spoke with a fun energy. Her room was decorated with pictures of Einstein and mathematical theorems written on whiteboards. "My name is Diana, and welcome to my room! As you can see, I adore math and school-related subjects. But I don't want to talk about that right now. Instead, I'm going to tell you a little bit about why I should be on Total Drama Jamaica! With my IQ and brain size, I can be a master strategist! I may look nice, but I'm ready to backstab to get myself to the end." She smiled for a moment, but her eye began to twitch. Her eyes started to well up with tears. "Please," she whispered, her voice cracking, "please pick me for Total Drama Jamaica." Sobbing, she ended the audition with, "I don't know if I can stay here any longer."
