Fictional Characters Wiki
Ezekiel (Total Drama)

Ezekiel in Seasons 1-2.

Ezekiel, labeled The Home Schooled Guy, is a major character in the television series Total Drama. He is a minor character in Total Drama Island, a cameo character in Total Drama Action, the secondary antagonist of Total Drama World Tour, and a minor antagonist in both Total Drama Revenge of the Island, and Total Drama All-Stars.

He was initially a camper on Total Drama Island as a member of the Killer Bass, who was the very first contestant to be eliminated for sexist comments. He did not qualify for Total Drama Action, but was a contestant on Total Drama World Tour as a member of Team Victory. After his elimination, he became a stowaway aboard the Total Drama Jumbo Jet, making various cameo appearances around the inside of the plane throughout the rest of the season, as he was seen descending into insanity, culminating in the finale when he accidentally threw the million dollars into a volcano. In Revenge of the Island, he is revealed to have become the leader of a horde of mutant gophers, and attempts to woo Anne Maria. In All-Stars, he appears the main antagonist of the episode Zeek and Ye Shall Find, the 100th episode of the show, where he kidnaps Chris and is revealed to have gained acid spit. He is ultimately defeated by Gwen and Cameron.


Feral Ezekiel

Ezekiel is a naive country boy who, prior to his time on Total Drama, was homeschooled at his farm. His lack of interaction with other kids has left him with incredibly poor social skills, and he has a tendency to say and do things that rub people the wrong way, even if his intentions may personally be good. Ezekiel also has some rather warped viewpoints on life, mostly due to his parents. He initially believes that women are inferior to men and also seems to value money over his friendships. However, it appears that Ezekiel is simply repeating what his parents told him and that these are not his genuine feelings. Later on in the series, he is seen interacting with several of the show's female contestants with no apparent animosity. Ezekiel has the distinction of being the first contestant ever voted off in the show's history. When he returns as a contestant in Total Drama World Tour, he becomes extremely determined to redeem himself for his early elimination in season one and his failure to compete at all in season two. Unfortunately, his bad luck continues and he is voted off first yet again. Humiliated and angry, Ezekiel refuses to accept his fate and becomes a stowaway in the Total Drama Jumbo Jet, living in the cargo hold for the entire season up until the plane's destruction. Over time, this has a drastic effect on his humanity and sanity, greatly altering his physical appearance into a green, clawed, bald, deformed monster who is no longer capable of speaking and attacks anybody he considers a threat.

Audition Tape[]


TDI- Ezekiel's Audition Tape

In the background, a typical farm can be seen. Ezekiel asks if the camera is on, then says that he's going to bag himself a moose. He then blows into a flute and sees something move in the bushes. In response, he shoots at it with a bow and arrow, but after it screams he realizes that he just shot his mother by accident. He then runs to her, worriedly apologizing.

Camp TV[]

Ezekiel appeared in Camp TV along with the majority of the cast. His design was almost completely different from his current one, bearing a strong resemblance to Noah's current design (Noah was not present in Camp TV), including the shape of the head, the sweater vest, and a look on his face that implies a snobbish attitude, similar to Noah. Despite this, however, the design's pants and shoes are similar to the current Ezekiel's.


  • Although almost all the contestants are Canadian, Ezekiel appears to be the closest to a stereotypical Canadian, shown by him often saying "Eh" (the only person on the show to regularly do so), wearing a toque, and speaking with a Canadian accent.

    • Some spots are also seen on his right hand as he is shot away from the island in Heroes vs. Villains and on both hands in Zeek And Ye Shall Find, suggesting this is not a natural trait and is merely part of the various other deformities he suffered in Total Drama World Tour.
