"Yo! We are coming at you live from Camp Wawanakwa, somewhere in Muskoka Ontario and I am your host Chris McLean" Chris said as he stepped out in front of the camera in front of him. "And I am dropping season one of the hottest new reality show on television right now!" he said as he started walking over, the camera following him as he did so.

"Here's the deal, 23 campers have signed up to spend eight weeks at this crummy old summer camp. They will compete in challenges against each other and then have to face the judgement of their fellow campers" he said as he came to stop at the cross section of the 'T' shaped docks.

"Every three days one team will either win a reward or watch one of their team members walk down the Dock of Shame, take a ride on the Loser Boat, and leave Total Drama Island for good. The one left standing at the end will win cheesy tabloid fame and a small fortune that, let's face it, they will blow through in a week" he said as he held up a small treasure chest full of gold and gems.

"Every moment will be captured on one of the hundreds of cameras situated all over the camp" Chris added as they panned over to a few of the cameras before going back to him.

"Who will crumble under the pressure? Find out here, right now on Total. Drama. Island" Chris said as the camera panned out and the cameraman motioned that the 'theme song' was playing just as a boat pulled into the docks.

"Welcome back to Total Drama Island where it is time to meet our first 12 campers. Now we told them they'd all be staying at a five star resort so if they seem a little P.O'ed then that's probably why" the host said with chuckle as the boat dropped off the first contestant before driving off to pick up the next.

The first contestant off was a girl with a modest figure of a smaller chest of a low B cup and a pudgy rear. She was short, shorter than Chris, with brown hair done up in a high ponytail. She wore glasses and braces, her outfit consisting of pink pants, a teal top and a green vest that had numerous buttons on it.

"Beth. What's up" Chris said as the girl proceeded to run to him and hug him with a smile.

"It is so incredulous to meet you. Wow...you're much shorter in real life" Beth said as she stepped back, looking him over before noticing the camera and waving to it.

"Uh, thanks" Chris said, a bit unsure about the girl before the boat returned and dropped the next camper off on the dock.

This camper was a tall man with dark skin and a muscular build. He wore a green t-shirt with a white shirt under it and grey cargo shorts and a white beanie.

"Hey there DJ" Chris said as the tall man set down his two bags.

"Yo Chris McLean, how's it going?" DJ asked as he gave the host a high five before looking around with a frown. "Hey, you sure you got the right place here? Where's the hot tub at?" he asked, unsure that they were at the right place before Chris nodded.

"Yo dawg, this is it. Camp Wawanakwa" Chris said as DJ frowned and picked his bags back up and walked off to join where Beth was standing while the boat quickly dropped off the next contestant that quickly seemed like she wanted to already leave.

The girl had teal and black, obviously dyed, black eyes, and teal lipstick colored lips with pale skin. Her outfit of a top that looked like a corset top with light blue short sleeves and green longer sleeves showed off her mid D cup chest due to the low cut and her midriff due to how short it was. She also wore a black and teal skirt that was rather short with black tights and black knee high boots.

"Hey Gwen" Chris said as Gwen frowned and walked forward, reluctantly picking up her bags before walking towards the host.

"You mean we're staying here?" she asked as Chris shook his head.

"No, you're staying here. My crib is an airstream with A.C. that-a-way" Chris said as he pointed back behind him with a smirk that only made the girl glare at him.

"I did not sign up for this" she said as Chris' smirk grew and he held up a thick stack of papers.

"Actually you did" he said, holding it up before Gwen took it from him and ripped it up with a smirk of her own that flattered when she saw his didn't. "The great thing about lawyers is they make lots of copies" he said as he held up another stack of paper that made Gwen groan and pick up her bags.

"I am not staying here" she as Chris shrugged his shoulders.

"Cool. I hope you can swim though because your ride left long ago and the drivers are ordered not to pick anyone up" he said as Gwen turned to see the boat was gone making her sigh and walk off before the next contestant's boat pulled up.

This boat was blaring music as it drove up to the dock, the contestant on it jamming out to it before cartwheeling off boat with his luggage dropped off after him.

The guy had blonde hair, his bangs being the only part that were visible under his cowboy hat. He wore an opened pink flannel shirt, which showed off his muscles and abs, and blue shorts and sandals as he made his way towards Chris.

"Chris McLean! Sup man? It's an honor to meet you man!" he said as Chris bumped fists with him.

"The Geoff-ster, welcome to the island man!" Chris said as Geoff chuckled and high fived the host.

"Thanks man" Geoff said as he walked over to the other contestants, ignoring the groan of annoyance from Gwen at the use of 'dude' every sentence while the boat dropped off the next contestant.

"Everybody, this is Lindsay" Chris said as they looked towards the next contestant to see a girl who was the very definition of a bombshell.

She was a rather tall blonde haired blue eyed girl, her hair kept back with a blue bandana on her head. She wore a red tube top under a brown tank top, both of which did little to contain her rather large J cup chest and also showed off a generous amount of cleavage, and an orange skirt with cowgirl boots to finish off her outfit.

"Not too shabby" Chris whispered into the camera as Lindsay walked over to him.

"Hi! You look so familiar" she said as Chris smirked.

"I'm Chris McLean" he said as he was use to people noticing him at first glance only for him to frown as Lindsay looked absolutely lost. "The host of the show" he said, hoping this jogged her memory.

"Oh that's where I know you from" she said as Chris sighed and she walked away just as the next boat arrived.

The next girl walked off the boat with an aura around her that screamed 'angry'. She had long straight black hair and grey eyes, which were visible once she took off her sunglasses. Her outfit consisting of a dull maroon halter tube top, which pushed up and showed off her low C cup chest, and incredibly short beige shorts that showed off her legs and butt nicely.

"Heather" Chris said as said girl stomped over to him, her fists clenched as she looked at him and immediately walked past him.

Everybody though turned to the dock as the sound of an electric guitar filled the air. "Is that...ACDC?" DJ asked as they turned to see the next contestant sitting on the front of the boat playing a guitar that was currently connected to a portable amp that was strapped to his hip.

The man had spiky blonde hair that stuck out in every direction, defying gravity, as two spiky bangs framed his tanned and oddly whiskered face. The man was smiling with his eyes closed as he seemingly wasn't playing for intimidation but because he enjoyed it.

He wore a red trench coat that had black flames lining around the bottom of it with a black button shirt and orange vest underneath along with black cargo pants and black boots. The guitar that the amp was attached to was a dark red Gibson Les Paul that hung off of him by a black shoulder strap.

From what they could see of his figure under his clothes he was muscular but not super overly so. It showed he was definitely strong and toned but not 'steroid big' or anything remotely like it.

"Ah nice little island you got here Chris. Should have expected since a 'five star resort' never seemed your kind of thing" the man said as he picked up his bags and stepped off the boat while Chris chuckled.

"Nice to see you made it Naruto and nice entrance. What song was that exactly?" Chris asked as Naruto smirked.

"To Those About to Rock, I felt it was a nice song to arrive with" he said as he looked over towards the others, allowing them to see his bright blue eyes that looked them over. "Are these the other contestants?" he asked as Chris nodded and Naruto walked over to them.

"Nice to meet you all" Naruto said before a familiar song was heard coming closer, causing them to turn around to see the next contestant showing up as rock music blared from an amp that was set up on the front.

The guy had incredibly short black hair with a dyed green Mohawk and a small black goatee. He had two piercings in each ear and one through his left eyebrow. His outfit consisted of a spiked collar around his neck, a black shirt with a skull on the front, white long sleeve undershirt, blue shorts, and a pair of red converse shoes.

"Duncan, dude nice choice of songs though we already had someone play some music coming in so you're a bit behind" Chris said as Duncan hopped off the boat with his bag and glared at the host.

"I don't like surprises" Duncan said as he held up his fist towards Chris while the host just crossed his arms with a smug smile.

"Yeah, your parole officer warned me about that man. He also told me to give him a holler any time and have you returned to juvie" he said making Duncan roll his eyes before smirking.

"Okay then" he said as he picked up his bag off the dock and made his way over to the others.

"Meet you by the campfire gorgeous" Duncan said with a smile towards Heather as she rolled her eyes at him.

"Drop dead you skeez" Heather said before she stomped over to her bags. "I am so calling my parents, you cannot make me stay here" she added as Chris merely waved the contract at her before Duncan set his bags near them.

"Wasn't that a song by Jinchuriki? Nice choice" Naruto said with a smile as he sat on one of the dock's posts, continuing to strum his guitar.

"Nice job catching that, surprised others actually know of them. Nice Gibson by the way man" Duncan said with a smirk, earning a nod of thanks from Naruto as they bumped fists before the next boat started to come in, honking its horn.

As they turned to see the next contestant they watched as his boat drove towards them while they were apparently water skiing behind the boat. The guy seemed to be wearing a red track suit with a matching headband to keep his shoulder length brown hair in place.

"Ladies and gentlemen! Tyler!" Chris introduced as Tyler waved before the little stability he had was lost and he started to roll and skip across the water before hitting the dock, getting sent flying up, only to crash into the pile of luggage that sent one bag into the water as well as drenching a nearby Heather.

"Wicked wipeout man!" Chris said as Tyler's arm popped out from under the luggage to give a thumbs up to show that he was okay. The host chuckled as he watched a soaking wet Heather stomp away before a long sigh was let out behind him by the next contestant that just arrived.

The contestant was rather lanky with shaggy brown hair and peach fuzz of a goatee on his chin. He wore glasses, a blue t-shirt with a burger on the front, a salmon colored long sleeve shirt under it, murky green jeans, and a pair of sneakers while he held a keyboard piano under one arm.

"Welcome to camp Harold" Chris said as Harold looked around for a minute or two, which confused some of the contestants, before turning back to Chris.

"So you mean this show is at a crappy summer camp and not on some big stage or something?" Harold said as Chris nodded with a smile.

"You got it" Chris said before Harold pumped his fist.

"Yes! That is so much more favorable to my skills" Harold said before he walked away making Chris shiver from being weirded out by the odd contestant before the next one arrived.

"Next one up is Trent" Chris said as Trent walked off his boat and towards the host.

Trent has short black hair with green eyes. His outfit consisted of a tan shirt with a black handprint on the front, a camo long sleeve shirt underneath, black jeans, and tan sneakers. He too was holding an instrument but his being a guitar in a case.

"Hey, good to see you man. I saw you on that figure-skating show. Nice work" Trent said he and Chris bumped fists.

"Hey, thanks man. I knew I rocked that show!" Chris said as Beth rose her hand.

"Oh I saw that! One of the guys dropped his partner on her head so they got immunity that week" Beth said as Harold scoffed.

"Lucky! I hope I get dropped on my head" Harold said as Lindsay nodded along.

"Me too!" she said cheerfully while some of the campers were a bit worried about them.

"So this is it?" Trent asked as he looked around him and at the other contestants before Harold disgustingly stuck his finger in his nose, making everyone around him scoot away. "Alrighty then" he said as he walked over, standing in the space left by people scooting away from Harold, putting him next to Naruto.

"Nice guitar man. Mines acoustic" Trent said as Naruto smiled.

"Very nice, I would have brought my acoustic one but I'm more of an electric guy myself" Naruto said as he continued to strum on his guitar, something no one had seemingly minded, as Trent nodded understandingly before they turned as the next boat arrived.

The contestant at the front this time was a blonde haired girl, her hair done in a ponytail and her amber eyes looking around as she walked forward with her orange and red surfboard in hand. She had a modest figure with a low C cup chest, hidden by the blue hoodie she wore along with dull blue shorts and a pair of flip flops.

"Hey, what's up?" she said, standing up her board on its end and held onto it while looking towards the host.

"All right. Our surfer chick Bridgette is here" Chris said before Duncan scoffed.

"Nice board, this ain't Malibu honey" Duncan said as Bridgette shrugged her shoulders.

"I thought we were going to be on a beach" she said while Chris nodded.

"We are!" he said as the camera moved over to a seagull with the packaging of a six pack stuck around its neck before a water came up and let it float out into the water.

"Great" Bridgette said disappointingly before Chris smiled.

"All right, that makes-Ow!" Chris said before he was interrupted by Bridgette's board hitting him in the head as she leaned down to pick up her bag. "Darn it, that hurt!" Chris complained as Bridgette walked off with a smirk.

"Hey guys" Bridgette said as she walked over to some of the male campers.

"Hey, I'm Geoff" Geoff said as he moved away from the other guys.

"Hey, what's up?" she asked as she turned around to see him, causing her to wave her board towards the guys, causing them to duck to avoid being hit.

"Dang, watch the board man!" Harold said before Beth walked up to introduce herself as she stood beside Trent.

"Hi! I'm Beth" the girl said, with an excited smile, happy to meet new people.

"Hey" Bridgette said, once again turning around and almost hitting Duncan, Trent, and Harold with her board.

"Okay people stop making her turn around and almost smack the guys off the dock" Naruto said as while he was safe on his post beside Gwen he didn't feel like watching the commotion of it all and annoyance of those pushed in that came after.

"Okay, we've all met surfer girl. Can we get on with the show please?" Heather said as she wrung out the water from her hair beside Tyler who had finally gotten out from under the bags.

"Someone missed their double cappuccino macchiato this morning" Duncan teased while Harold chuckled beside him.

"Get bent" Heather sneered as she lightly glared at Duncan just as the next boat dropped off the next camper.

The camper was a male with somewhat neat but shaggy hair. He wore a blue short sleeved button up shirt with a red vest over it and a white long sleeved shirt under everything, finishing it off with dull grey shorts and darker grey sneakers.

"Our...next camper is Noah" Chris said as he rubbed his head, it still hurting from Bridgette.

"You got my memo about my life-threatening allergies?" Noah asked as he walked up to Chris with his bag in hand.

"I'm sure someone did" Chris said as Noah kept on walking past Chris with a disinterested look on his face.

"Good. Is this where we're staying?" Noah asked, pointing to the camp with mild disgust.

"No. It's your mother's house and we're throwing a party" Duncan said as he popped his knuckles with a smirk on his face.

"Cute. Nice piercings. Original. Do them yourself?" Noah said with heavy sarcasm as Duncan grabbed Noah's lip and pulled out a needle, ready to make a hole for a piercing in it.

"Ugh, no thanks. Can I have my lip back please?" Noah asked, completely unfazed by Duncan before the punk let it go with a smirk. "Thanks" Noah added before the next camper arrived.

The next woman was definitely curvy with a full figure, her chest easily being G cup with a large and firm rear on her. She had dark skin, her black hair pulled back in a ponytail with dark eyes and a beauty mark on her right cheek. He wore a tight beige top that had four oranges going across her chest and dull blue shorts, finishing it off with a pair of sandals.

"What's up y'all? Leshawna's in the house!" Leshawna said as she waved to them while her boat pulled up.

"Yo baby, hey, how you doing? How's it going?" Leshawna said as she passed by Chris, giving him a high five before she continued on towards the other campers. "Feel free to quit now and save yourselves the trouble cause I came to win" Leshawna said to the campers as Naruto chuckled and looked at her.

"Confident, I like it. We'll see how well it goes when the game begins" Naruto said, earning a smirk and playful wink from Leshawna before she made her way over to DJ.

"Oh, what's up my brother? Give me some sugar baby!" she said as she gave DJ a high five before Harold popped up behind her.

"I've never seen a girl like you in real life before" Harold said while Leshawna rose her eyebrow at him and put her hands on her hips.

"Excuse me?" she asked as Harold held his hands up.

"You're real big, and loud" the nerdy man said as Leshawna narrowed her eyes.

"What did you say to me? Oh no you didn't. You have not seen anything yet" Leshawna yelled as she stomped towards the pencil thin nerd, rolling up her sleeves. "I'll show you big baby" Leshawna said, about to pounce before Naruto quickly handed Gwen his guitar and rushed forward, after getting a nod from DJ, to help him keep Leshawna from attacking the boy.

"Easy there Leshawna, no need to break him. I'm sure the breeze or anything over ten pounds will do it for you" Naruto said as Leshawna tried to keep pushing herself towards the scrawny boy who did ridiculous karate chops, on one leg, towards her.

"All right campers. Settle down" Chris said as Leshawna calmed down, allowing Naruto and DJ to let her go as she adjusted and fixed her shirt, before the blonde haired guitarist went back over to Gwen who handed him back his guitar with a smirk.

"Sorry bout that, you were closest and I didn't want Leshawna murdering the string bean on live television" Naruto said as he put his guitar back on him and plugged hit back into the amp.

"No problem and at least I can say I've held an expensive guitar like that. How did you get it by the way?" Gwen asked as she had seen how much Les Pauls went for and they were not cheat in any way.

"My old man has a friend who knows someone who makes these. The man owed my dad so he gave him a guitar that my dad wanted to give to me for my birthday and to show he supported me and my dream. Had it with me for a couple years now. Though how did you know it was an expensive guitar?" Naruto asked as Gwen smiled and brushed some hair behind her ear.

"An artist I like uses a guitar like this but his is more of an orangish gold" she said as Naruto nodded.

"That sounds pretty cool. If you ever want to give my guitar a go just ask since I don't picture you as the guitar trashing type" he teased before she rolled her eyes with a slight smirk.

"I can't really play, never been able to really find the time" she said as he shook his head.

"That's no good. How about if you decide differently just ask and I'll be more than happy to teach you. Being able to play and create music is incredibly relaxing, something I feel we might need to survive this island" he joked, making Gwen smile and nod a bit before the next boat pulled in.

This time it seemed to drop off two girls who were wearing complete matching hairstyles of black with pigtails as well as outfits of black and white short tops and pink short shorts.

The girl on the left was the taller and skinnier of the two with tan skin, low B cup chest and a bubbly rear while the girl on the right was chubbier with a low C cup chest and larger rear.

"Ladies! Sadie, Katie! Welcome to your new home for eight weeks" Chris said as he motioned towards the camp as the two girls looked it over.

"Sadie, look. It's a summer camp" the tan girl they now figured to be Katie said to the chubbier girl now known as Sadie who happily clapped her hands.

"Okay I always wanted to go to summer camp!" she said before she and Katie let out an excited squeal and rushed off to the other campers, somewhat confusing Chris before the next boat arrived and quickly dropped off the next camper.

This contestant was a boy barely shorter than Chris. He wore a blue beanie over his shaggy brown hair, a dull green hoodie, blue jeans and dull green shoes. From first look he looked a bit 'not there'.

"Ezekiel! What's up man?" Chris said as Ezekiel immediately looked up before pointing at something.

"I think I see a bird" he said as a few other campers chuckled more at Ezekiel then at the 'joke'.

"Okay, look dude. I know you don't get out much. Been home schooled your whole life, raised by freaky prairie people. Just don't say much and try not to get kicked off too early, okay?" Chris said before he softly pushed Ezekiel on towards the other campers.

"Yes sir" Ezekiel said as the next boat quickly arrived and dropped off the next guy.

This kid was also a bit scrawny with short brown hair, wearing a long sleeved white button up shirt under a cream colored t-shirt that had a blue and red line across the front of it with blue jeans a pair of sneakers to finish it off.

"Cody. The Code-ster. The Code-meister" Chris said as he and Cody did finger guns towards each other before high fiving.

"Dude, psyched to be here man" Cody said as he walked over to the other contestants. "I see the ladies have already arrived" he added as he winked towards some of the girls only for them to look either confused at Cody or slightly roll their eyes at him.

Though before Cody could say anything to Leshawna she held her finger up to his lips. "Save it short stuff" she said before Cody nodded and walked away just as the next girl walked off the boat.

The next girl had an aura of power around her as she was toned with muscles. She had black hair pulled back into a ponytail, her amber eyes glaring ahead, her face neutral as she also had a beauty mark above her lip on the left side.

She had a rather large chest as well that, while not on Lindsay's level, was easily an H cup that was bound in a tight blue top, as her toned rear somewhat hidden by her shorts as her outfit was finished with a pair of calf high socks and sneakers.

"Eva?" Chris said unsure as Eva kept walking past him. "Nice. glad you could make it" he added as Eva reached the others, ignoring Cody's attempt for a high five before she dropped her bag, which contained her weights by the outline of it, on his foot making some people wince and others chuckle or smirk.

"What's in there? Dumbbells?" Cody asked as he cradled his foot in his hands while hopping a bit.

"Yes" Eva said shortly as Duncan chuckled and looked over to DJ and Naruto, the two stronger looking men on the island, before another boat drove up.

"Woohoo! Chris, what's happening?" a man yelled as he stepped off the boat.

The guy was rather large in both height and size with shaggy blonde hair as he wore a sleeveless white shirt with a blue maple leaf on the front and a pair of green shorts.

Chris had to pick his ear a bit to alleviate any ringing before the guy laughed excitedly. "This is awesome! Woohoo!" the guy cheered as Chris smiled and pointed his fingers at the guy.

"Owen! Welcome!" Chris said before Owen picked the host up in a bear hug.

"Awesome to be here man! Yeah! Man, this is just so…" Owen said as he paused, unable to think of the word as Chris looked like he had trouble breathing.

"Awesome?" Gwen said with a smirk as Owen nodded.

"Yes, awesome! Woo! Are you going to be on my team?" Owen asked Gwen rolled her eyes and wagged her finger around in a circle unenthusiastically.

"Oh I sure hope so" she said sarcastically before Owen let out a cheer.

"You about finished?" Chris asked as he was getting tired of being held by the large man as Owen thankfully set him back down.

"Sorry dude, I'm just so psyched!" Owen cheered as another boat pulled up.

"Cool. And here comes Courtney" Chris said before he helped the next girl off from the front of the boat.

The girl had tanned skin with freckles across the bridge of her nose short brown hair that went down to her shoulders. She wore a grey sweater with a white long sleeve button shirt that had its sleeves rolled up, underneath that did well to accentuate her DD cup chest. Her dull green pants also did well to squeeze on her rear, which looked quite firm and full.

She smiled as she walked over to everyone else before stopping a bit to introduce herself. "Hi! You must be the other contestants. It's really nice to meet you all" Courtney said with a smile before Owen grabbed her hand to shake it.

"How's it going? I'm Owen!" Owen said as he excitedly shook her hand.

"Nice to meet you, O….wow" she said before she drifted off after looking behind her after hearing another boat pull up only to be in shock at who it was.

The man was definitely good looking with blue eyes, short dark brown hair, chiseled features, and toned lean muscles. He wore a dark green shirt that was basically clinging to his chest and baggy grey jeans.

As he stepped off the boat Naruto chuckled as he watched the effects the guy was having on some of the girls from the stone faced Eva to even oddly Owen. "What you're not going mushy for Mr. Model over there?" Naruto asked as Gwen was seemingly the only girl not drooling over the guy while she disinterestedly filed her nails.

"I mean sure he's good looking but he seems like the kind to be a bit only about looks. Seen enough of those back at my high school" Gwen said while Naruto nodded and they turned back towards the guy as he walked towards Chris.

"This is Justin" Chris introduced Justin before bumping fists with him. "Welcome to Total Drama Island" he said as Justin nodded.

"Thanks Chris. This is great" he said while he looked around a bit.

"Just so you know, we picked you based entirely on your looks" Chris said while Justin shrugged his shoulders.

"I can deal with that" Justin said before walking towards the others while the girls continued to moderately drool over him.

"Hey everyone! Izzy!" Chris said, hoping to snap them out of their stupor as the next girl came in in her boat.

The girl had wavy orange hair and bright green eyes. Her outfit was rather odd as she wore a very tiny sleeveless green top that pushed up low C cup chest and while it went up to her neck did show off some cleavage with the keyhole triangle in the front. For pants she wore a two toned green sarong and a pair of green slippers for shoes.

"Hi Chris! Hi!" Izzy excitedly said as she ran up to the front of the boat only to trip, fall off the boat, and slam her chin onto the edge of the pier making everyone wince as she fell down into the water.

"Ooh, that was bad" Tyler chuckled as Naruto sighed and rolled his eyes, handing his guitar to Gwen again, who chuckled and nodded, as he decided he might as be the only one to help her since no one else was.

"Like yours was any better dude" Naruto said as he and Courtney went over to help Izzy out of the water.

"Thanks for helping" Courtney said as she was a bit upset no one else tried to help before they watched the orange haired girl shake herself dry with a smile.

"That felt so...good!" Izzy said with a giggle before she put her hands on her head. "Except for hitting my chin. This is a summer camp? That is so cool! Do you have papier-mache here? Are we having lunch soon?" Izzy rattled off rapid fire as Naruto chuckled.

"Well she seems okay...ish" Naruto said lowly to Courtney before accepting his guitar back from Gwen.

"First things first! We need a group photo for the promos. Everyone on the end of the dock" Chris said as Naruto sighed and carefully put his guitar and amp in their waterproof cases before following everyone else as they made their way down.

"What no guitar?" Gwen joked as Naruto shook his head.

"Not that close to the water especially considering how much it's worth" Naruto said with a smirk before Gwen nodded understandingly and made her way over with him.

As everyone got in their poses, Naruto choosing to stand there, his arms crossed with a smirk beside Trent as Gwen leaned against him with a smile, Chris hopped up on the boat that Izzy had come in on.

"Okay! One, two, three...now everyone say 'Wawanakwa'!" he said as everyone said it just as the dock started to quiver underneath them and just as the picture was taken they all were dropped into the water below.

"Okay guys! Dry off, get changed or whatever and meet me back at the beach in 10!" Chris said as everyone groaned.

"See that is why I didn't bring my guitar" Naruto droned out as he and Gwen made their way to the shore.

-POV Change - Naruto-

Naruto groaned as he dried himself off, thankful he didn't keep his guitar on him or keep anything important in his pockets as he figured Chris might do something like this.

So far though he was excited to see how this all would go down as honestly the only reason he agreed to go on this show, after a good friend of his mentioned it to him, was because he figured it could be a nice breather from his intense job.

That and it could prove to be fun given the characters around him, especially since they didn't know who he really was.

Not like he'd tell them anytime soon or risk being treated differently.

"Ugh I think I still have water in my ear" Gwen groaned as she patted the side of her head in an attempt to get it out while she stood at the beach alongside the other campers in front of two odd poles that weren't here early.

"Yeah a lot of us do. I swear that man planned this from the start. Though I am curious what he has planned for these things" Naruto said as he looked over the poles.

"Ooo! Ooo! Maybe we have to pull them up from the ground or something like that" Izzy said as she poked her head over his shoulder. "Hey I really like your whiskers! Reminds me of a kitty cat! Are they tattoos!?" she asked as she quickly started rubbing her fingers over them with a big smile.

"They are birthmarks and I like to think they look like a fox's whiskers" he told her as he grinned at her to show off his sharp canines while he gently took her hands off his cheeks which made her pout for a second before smiling at him.

"That is so cool! I can definitely see a fox now, cute and cuddly" she rattled on before running off to another place in the crowd with a last minute wink and smirk at him.

"Whatever he has planned for them he shouldn't keep us waiting since he told us to be here" Heather groaned out as the host was nowhere to be seen.

"Oh chill out not like we have anywhere to be" Duncan said with a scoff while rolling his eyes before the host pulled up on a quad.

"Welcome campers to Camp Wawanakwa" Chris said as he parked and turned off the quad. "This will be your camp for the next eight weeks. The campers standing around you will be your cabin mates, your competition, and maybe even your friends. The camper who manages to stay on Total Drama Island the longest without getting voted off will win $100,000" Chris said as Duncan stepped out from the group of others.

"Excuse me Chris what will the sleeping arrangements be on here because I'd like to request a bunk under her" Duncan said pointing to Heather who didn't seem to be too happy.

"I doubt he'd make them coed so don't worry too much" Naruto told her, making Heather give a sigh of relief since as much as Chris probably wanted to so that drama could be stirred up he doubted it'd be allowed with kids ranging from 16 to 18.

"Naruto is right. Girls get one side of each cabin while dudes get the other" Chris said before Lindsay rose her hand.

"Excuse me Kyle? Can I have a cabin with a lake view because I'm the prettiest?" Lindsay asked as Chris dryly chuckled.

"Okay you are but that isn't how it will work here. And it's Chris" Chris said before pulling out a piece of paper. "So here's the deal in terms of teams. In a bit I will be splitting the 22 of you into two teams" Chris added before Courtney raised her hand.

"Yes Courtney?" Chris asked as she stepped out from the other campers.

"Yeah, Chris there are 23 of us and that doesn't really make for even teams" she said as Chris nodded with a smile.

"Yes thank you for noticing as it allows me to start our first instant nomination challenge!" Chris said as he pulled out two boxes with a circle cut out from the top before kicking a large spool nearby that unrolled across the beach, leaving behind a rope line on the sand.

"Wait instant elimination? As in we just got here and we might go home?" Beth asked worriedly as Chris nodded.

"Yes in a challenge I like to call 'Kicking and Screaming' and here are the rules" Chris said as he motioned towards the two large polls. "It consists of four rounds where I will pick two names: one out of girl box and one out of the boy," he said while shaking the boxes "and those two will go on the pole. Then I do it again twice to pick the boy girl duo who will try and pry said girl or boy off of the pole. FYI you can't punch or do anything like that to get them off, you have to pull them off" he said looking at Duncan who scoffed and looked away upset as that was probably his plan.

"Once off the poll you must get them across the line. First person on the pole to be removed and dragged past this line is up for elimination as well as those who couldn't get their person off the pole. Those who stay on the pole and have gotten their person off the pole are safe. So you kind of want to be on the poll but also don't" Chris said with a chuckle as he could see people debating whether or not they wanted to have their name pulled for the poll.

"And again, due to numbers of having 12 boys and 11 girls, one girl at the last round will have her name pulled back out from the past names at random and whatever team she ends up being on will get help on the next challenge. Does everybody have the rules?" Chris asked as the consensus of them nodded making him smile.

"Good so let's begin with the first two names! For the boys we have...Tyler! And for the girls we have...Katie! You two are first on the poles" Chris said as Tyler let out an excited cheer while Katie looked nervous.

"Pulling off Tyler we have...Trent and Sadie!" Chris said as Katie's other half let out a sigh of relief. "While for pulling off Katie we have...Harold and Bridgette!" he added, having pulled out the names as the people picked walked up to the line, ready to run.

"Ready….go!" Chris yelled as the ones he had chosen darted towards the poles.

"Good luck trying to get me off you guys, my athletic body will keep me on this pole so give up now" Tyler bragged as Trent was already making progress on his legs.

"Harold how about you actually start helping instead of ridiculously chopping her hands like that" Bridgette said as the nerd was standing on one leg while doing his weak chops on Katie's hands while she was left alone to pull at Katie's legs.

"I am helping, my judo martial arts will make her body weak and we will win" Harold said before a throat was cleared.

"You aren't doing judo you idiot" Naruto yelled as people looked at him a bit weird.

"What? My mom runs a dojo of several martial arts" Naruto said as the campers nodded and turned back to the challenge quickly to find Sadie ticking Tyler who was barely holding onto his pole with just his arms while Trent was holding onto and pulling on Tyler's legs.

"N-No fair! Y-You can't tickle" Tyler said, his voice shaking, as were his arms, as he visibly tried to keep from laughing.

"Chris said we could do anything but punching or stuff like that. Tickling is fine" Sadie said as she started to tickle him even more, causing his arms to give out and start to squirm while laughing, giving Trent the window to quickly start pulling Tyler past the line.

"And the first round goes to Trent and Sadie who are safe from elimination as is Katie for surviving!" Chris said as Bridgette sent a light glare towards Harold who seemingly didn't notice as he walked off.

"And now onto round two with...Geoff and Heather on the poles! Geoff gets Courtney and Owen while Heather gets Cody and, ow, Eva" Chris said with a chuckle while Heather paled a bit while Eva cracked her knuckles.

"She can't break my bones to pull me off can she?" Heather asked as Chris nodded.

"The lawyers say no bodily harm such as punching, breaking anything, or biting. Everything else is fair game and you can even kick at them when they drag you away. Hence the name" Chris said as Heather nodded and sat down behind the pole, tightly hugging it as Geoff cheered beside her.

"Ready...go!" Chris said as the next four people rushed towards their poles.

"Come Owen my man, you can do better than that" Geoff taunted as Owen and Courtney tried to pull at Geoff only to realize his muscles weren't just to show off.

Eva though charged ahead, in front of the nervous Cody that didn't want to get in her way, and almost immediately pulled Heather's arms off the pole with her superior strength. "No! Let me go!" Heather yelled as she squirmed only to find herself picked up by Eva.

Heather quickly found, no matter how much she tried to struggle, kick, or squirm, Eva's grip and strength left her totally outmatched as she found herself past the line and tossed off Eva's shoulder and onto her butt.

"At least give me a challenge Chris" Eva said with a smirk as Chris clapped with a chuckle.

"Don't know what I was expecting but Eva, Cody, and Geoff win immunity. Great show of strength there Eva" Chris congratulated as Eva shrugged her shoulders, still smirking, while he went to pull the next set of names.

"Next up on the pole, after that short match, are Noah and Izzy! Noah, you have Beth and Duncan while Izzy you have Justin and Lindsay!" Chris said before pointing to Duncan. "Though before anything please hand over the needle you have Duncan" Chris added making the punk tsk and pull it out with a frown making Noah let out a thankful sigh and not having to get pricked by the punk.

"Oh I'm so excited! Reminds me of protests where you chain yourself to a tree or something" Izzy said with an excited and hyper giggle as she hugged onto the pole with her arms and legs.

"Might as well get this over with" Noah said unenthusiastically before he hugged the pole as well.

"Okay then, ready...go!" Chris said as Duncan was the first of the line with Beth running after him while Lindsay was taking her time and Justin seemed not too interested either.

"How about you make this easy or else this might hurt" Duncan said as he cracked his knuckles while looking down at Noah while Beth stood off to one side, unsure of what to do.

"Whatever, as I said, get this over with" Noah said as he let go and allowed Duncan to pull him by the ankle across the line.

"Oh come on! At least put up a challenge" Chris complained before pinching the bridge of his nose with a sigh. "Fine whatever. Duncan, Beth, and Izzy get immunity and we are onto the final match up I guess" Chris said as Lindsay pouted at not being able to do anything in this challenge.

"So which one of us do you think is going on a pole?" Gwen asked as Naruto rubbed his chin.

"I'm hoping I get to go on there since it looks pretty fun" he said as Gwen chuckled and rolled her eyes.

"I'd much rather be pulling then having myself pulled off so we'll see" Gwen said as Chris pulled out the next set of names.

"Last round! On the pole are Leshawna and Ezekiel! Pulling off Leshawna are Gwen and DJ while Ezekiel gets Naruto and, by random draw, Eva!" Chris said as Leshawna cheered a bit while Ezekiel looked confident.

"I'm not scared. I mean she only won last time cause she pulled off a girl and I'm a man" Ezekiel said as everybody froze.

"What did he just say?" Eva growled out as Naruto, Gwen, and DJ all took a step back from her as she looked like she was about to rip out someone's throat.

"What? Guys are like stronger than girls. It's a fact. She won't be able to pull me off cause she's a girl and girls are weak. Just like Pa told me" Ezekiel said as Chris buried his face in his hand and Naruto patted Eva on the back.

"You know what I'll leave him to you, have at him just try not to kill the boy" Naruto said as Chris quickly rose his hand.

"Ready and go!" Chris said as he made sure the camera crews were focused on Eva.

"Guys are stronger than girls? I'm weak? I'll show you weak!" Eva roared as she didn't grab Ezekiel but the pole he was holding onto before she started to pull it up out of the beach.

"Okay everybody back! Make some room!" Naruto warned as they watched Eva lift both the pole and Ezekiel up above her before she javelin tossed the pole over the line before stomping after it.

"I'm not weak you little misogynistic pig so get things straight" Eva said as she proceeded to pull Ezekiel off the pole and let him fall just to show how strong she was.

"Okay Naruto and Leshawna get immunity while Eva's team, when they are made, will be given an advantage in the next challenge" Chris said as he was surprised by Eva's feat of strength given the pole was easily 15 feet long with five of those feet buried and embedded in the sand.

"And do I even need to ask who you all want to eliminate?" Chris asked as he watched as all the women, and men, glared towards the confused homeschooled boy.

"I'm pretty sure this is majority so I'd get him off the island before someone like Eva murders the kid on live television" Naruto said as it was taking him, DJ, Geoff, and Duncan to keep the bodybuilder back from strangling the kid.

"What? Dudes you can't eliminate me!" Ezekiel yelled as two interns picked him up and started to take him away back to the docks.

"Well now that a murder was narrowly escaped and the numbers are even come and meet me by the campfire for team assignments" Chris said as he hopped back on his quad and drove off, causing everyone to groan as they followed the host.

"You okay Eva?" Naruto asked as they let go of her, the other guys and campers hurrying off as Naruto stayed behind a bit. He made sure to give her space as she panted in rage a bit and clenched her fits.

"That little asshole…do I look weak!?" she yelled, glaring at him as Naruto calmly held his hands up and put them on her fists to lower them.

"Trust me, you don't look weak at all as I'm certain you are the strongest camper here physically. That kid is just a misogynic, don't let his words get to you as you proved to him and everyone else how wrong he was" he told her gently, wanting to keep her calm and reassure her as she took a few calming breaths.

"Your right. I'm here and that little punk is gone. Thanks….I guess" Eva said, visibly calming down and blushing a bit as she apologized before Naruto took his hands off of hers with a smile.

"Great! Now we really should catch up to the others as everyone is almost to the campfire" he told her, getting her to nod before she walked alongside him as they returned to the others.

"Good, you are all here! Now hurry and sit down so I can form your teams for the next eight weeks" Chris said as he still sat on his quad with a smile as he held a piece of paper in his hands while two cloths, one a dull red while the other was a dull green, were rolled up and sitting behind him.

"Here's the deal now, we are going to split you up into two team and when I call your name please come stand over here" Chris said before motioning to the right of him.

"Gwen, Trent, Heather, Cody, Lindsay, Beth, Katie, Owen, Leshawna, Justin, and Noah" he listed before tossing the green rolled up cloth over to Owen. "From this moment on you are officially known as...the Screaming Gophers!" Chris said as Owen cheered as the cloth unrolled to show the team's logo.

"Wait! What about Sadie?" Katie said worriedly before Chris ignored her and pointed to the others.

"The rest of you, over here. Geoff, Bridgette, DJ, Tyler, Sadie, Izzy, Courtney, Naruto, Duncan, Eva, and Harold" Chris said as those whose names were called out started to move over to his left.

"But Katie's a gopher! I have to be a gopher!" Sadie said as Courtney helped console her.

"So I guess it means we're enemies from here on out" Naruto teased as he looked over to Gwen who smirked and nodded.

"I'm not going to go easy on you just because you let me hold your guitar" she said with a smirk as he chuckled and nodded.

"That's fair but my offer to teach you still stands. Our teams may be enemies but doesn't mean I have to hate you or not speak to you" Naruto said as he walked over to his team with a smirk while Gwen smiled and made her way over to her team.

"You guys," Chris said as the other team came together before tossing the red cloth to Naruto who caught it and let it unroll "will be officially known as the Killer Bass!" he said as before looking to both teams now that they had officially been formed.

"All right campers! From now on you and your team will be on camera in all public areas during this competition. You will also be able to share your innermost thoughts on tape with video diaries any time you want to let the audience at home know what you're really thinking or to just get something off your chest at what I like to call the Confessional" Chris said as he motioned towards an old fashioned outhouse a bit in the distance.

"Now Gophers will take the east cabin while Bass get the west. Your things have been moved in already so all that is needed is for you all to pick your beds. Though with his being the first day consider the rest of the day your time to get situated in here before lunch is served in 30 minutes" Chris said as he shrugged his shoulders and revved up his quad.

"Wait will there be any kind of chaperone while we are here?" Geoff asked as Chris shrugged his shoulders again.

"You are all between 16 and 18, 16 being when counselors in training would start so besides me you will be unsupervised. Just don't do anything stupid since you all are on camera" Chris added before driving off, leaving them to their own devices.

Naruto smiled as so far he was liking how things were going and after getting unpacked, which went rather smoothly other than a cockroach incident, they were now all relaxing in the main hall.

The chef, so far, was an interesting man in Naruto's book as he reminded him of his friend's Bee's brother Aye. The man, who told them to call him Chef Hatchet, was a large muscular dark skinned man who was bald with a moustache and a small goatee.

The food looked odd but he had seen weirder whenever his other friend Fu or his sister tried to cook.

"What! You gonna say something as well blondie?!" Chef yelled as Naruto looked at his tray.

"No sir, food is food honestly. Doesn't look too bad. Thanks I guess" Naruto said with a chuckle as Chef just rose an eyebrow and shrugged his shoulders.

-Confessional-

"Honestly so far I'm loving this" Naruto said as he sat in the outhouse camera, trying it out for the first time. "This is different from what I'm use to but that's good as I signed up for this because I wanted a breather. So far I've met some people, one who somewhat has caught my eye, and I might make some friends here. All in all I can say this is going to be great" he finished as he leaned back with a smirk.

-Confessional End-

-Next Day-

Naruto groaned as a loud air horn was played through the intercom system of the camp before he got out of bed as Chris's voice clicked onto the intercom.

"Everybody swimsuit up and meet at the main hall where some interns will take you via golf carts to the first reward challenge of the show! I hope none of you are scared of heights!" Chris announced before the intercom cut out.

"Great...first thing in the morning and a challenge. This'll be great" Duncan groaned out as he fell out of his bed with a glare, obviously not happy about being woken up like that.

They didn't waste too much time getting changed into their swimsuits in the communal bathrooms before they, in groups of two and three on the two golf carts the interns had for them, made their way to the challenge.

"So what do you think they'll have us do?" Naruto asked, his swimsuit consisting of a pair of black shorts that had a red chain design crisscrossing on the right leg, as he looked over to Gwen as she sat beside him, their teams mixed together to make things faster.

"He's making us get in swimsuits so it's either something where we might get messy or something fully involving water, either way I'm not too confident it'll be pleasant" Gwen said as she crossed her arms, her swimsuit consisting of a strapless black and rather tight tube top styled top and black short shorts made of the same waterproof material as her top, while Naruto smirked excitedly.

"I don't know, personally I'm really excited for this. And since it's a reward challenge we don't have to worry too much" Naruto pointed out while Gwen shrugged a bit as the golf cart continued on, only for Gwen to start getting worried the further up the island's massive cliff they got.

"No, no way. You can't be serious" Gwen said as she arrived at the top of the cliff where Chris and the others were waiting for them.

"Oh but Gwen I am as trust me this reward will be very useful in surviving the island. Now listen up as this challenge is threefold!" Chris said as he held up one finger.

"Your first task is to jump off this thousand foot high cliff into the lake" Chris said as Bridgette chuckled.

"Piece of cake" she said as Chris smirked and motioned to the cliff side.

"If you look down you will see two target areas. The wider area represents the part of the lake that we have stocked with psychotic man-eating sharks. Inside that area though is a safe zone which is your target area" Chris said ignoring the worried looks around him.

"For each member of your team that jumps and actually survives there will be a crate of supplies waiting below. Inside each crate are the supplies that you'll need for the second part of the challenge which is building a hot tub" he said as the campers started to smile at the promise of a hot tub.

"The team with the best one gets to have a wicked hot tub party tonight. The losers will have to watch and be refused to join unless the other team feels gracious enough to let you in" Chris said, finishing it off with a shrug.

"Because Eva ended up being randomly picked yesterday and won both rounds she was in her team gets some wicked carts to help transport the crates as well as some possibly better tools. And because of that Killer Bass, you're up first" Chris said he stepped back to let them decide.

"So...who's first?" Bridgette asked as she peered over the edge only for silence from her team.

Naruto even chose to stay quiet as he'd much rather have someone else test the waters first before him as he wasn't super eager to jumping into shark infested waters.

"Ladies first" Duncan said as Bridgette groaned.

"Fine, I'll go first. It's no big deal...just an insane cliff dive into a lake of angry sharks" she said before she dove off the cliff, safely making it into the inner circle below.

One by one Naruto watched as his teammates dove into the water, him waiting near the end while Gwen edged him along.

"What you aren't scared are you?" she teased as he chuckled and rolled his eyes.

"No, I just want to stay up here a bit longer. Better things to see up here" he said with a smirk before Gwen blushed a bit as she noticed he was looking over at her and her swimsuit with a bit nervous smile and what she swore was a light blush on his cheeks, despite his tanned skin making it hard to tell.

"What are you looking at?" she asked a bit embarrassed before he smiled and met her eyes.

"Honestly, you. You and how the swimsuit looks great on you" he said with a smirk as he looked her over a bit. He might not have much experience with actual women, as this was the first time he had ever flirted with someone and not have them just flirt with him when he was uninterested, he did know how to do it a bit.

Gwen didn't have much experience with boys as her Goth appearance didn't make them come running to her so she was a bit taken aback how straightforward he was being and how his eyes told her he was being serious about the compliment.

"Well...don't stare too much" Gwen said as she crossed her arms and looked away from him, a blush dusting over her pale skin.

"Oh so a little is okay then?" he asked making her laugh at his odd and funny response before she looked up at him and rolled her eyes which made him chuckle as well.

"Come on Naruto you're up so stop flirting" Chris teased as Naruto sent a glare towards the host that only made Chris smirk. "DJ and Courtney chickened out while Katie and Sadie, the latter having changed teams in place of Izzy, have all jumped so it's only you" he said as Naruto nodded and walked over to the ledge.

"See you at the bottom" Naruto said with a smirk as he stepped backwards off the cliff and let himself fall as he looked up at the sky. His smirk grew as he did a few free fall back flip spins before making his body point straight down so he could dive into the water safely.

"Woo! That was awesome!" Naruto cheered, pushing his still spiky hair back off from in front of his eyes as he looked over to his team who were also cheering at him, before a boat came over to pick him up.

"Nice going man, those flips were sick" Geoff said as he bumped fists with Naruto as he made it back onto shore.

"Thanks man now let's get those crates loaded up so we can be ready to go once the other team makes it down" Naruto said as he watched Heather get seemingly thrown over with Leshawna following after.

He continued to watch while getting the crates up as one by one the other team started to jump, chuckling mainly at Gwen as she made her way down, as one by one they all made it down.

Justin though was the only one to really land outside the safe zone before the sharks oddly brought him back to shore with hearts in their eyes while Beth was the only chicken of her team before only Owen was left.

Everyone was a bit nervous about him jumping but he proved them wrong as he leapt off the cliff and cannonballed hard into the safe zone. The result of which caused a massive wave to whip the boat out of the water and everyone on the shore to be pushed back, tangled and toppled from the force of the wave.

It had even been powerful enough to send a shark up into a tree and another buried in the beach around them.

"Great job guys! Now the final stint starts! Start taking your crates back to camp! You can get changed after you are done since you'll need your suits for the hot tub party!" Chris said over a megaphone before Naruto chuckled and pushed himself up off the beach, helping some of his nearby teammates get back on their feet as well.

"Well you heard the man legs get moving" Naruto said with a chuckle as he noticed there were four carts. "Everyone help get the carts back up so me, Eva, Duncan, and Geoff can start pulling them back to camp as fast as we can" Naruto said, taking a bit of charge as everyone nodded along.

"Wait I've actually had experience as a C.I.T so I should lead so we do things most efficiently" Courtney said as Eva turned and glared at her.

"Quiet chicken and help get the carts back up on their wheels" she growled out as Naruto frowned.

"Also we don't need someone ordering us around, that just makes people resent. We need to work together as a team and not be bossed around" Naruto said as he rubbed the back of his neck, not trying to bag on her but hopefully helping her not be worried about leading everybody.

With the carts and the ones pulling it they were able to make it back to camp incredibly fast with the others shortly behind.

"We should start opening the boxes so we can get the pieces out right?" Duncan asked as Naruto nodded and tossed him a crowbar, one of the tools that Eva had won them.

"Get everything out. Look for instructions and then we can get started" Naruto said as Katie and Sadie rose their hands.

"Um Naruto, we need to go to the bathroom" Katie said as Naruto chuckled and nodded.

"Then go ahead, no need to ask as right now we are just unpacking. You two can help when you get back" he said as the girls smiled and hugged him before rushing off to the bathroom.

"I found some wood" Tyler said as he held up boards.

"I think this is a pool liner" Eva said with a frown before Naruto nodded with a smile.

"Good we are finding the pieces quickly. All we need are-these?" Naruto started to say before DJ interrupted a bit unsure as he held out a folded up piece of paper.

"Yes, with the instructions now we can start" Naruto said while he started to unfold them.

"So where do we start?" Bridgette asked, them all looking towards him although he felt it wasn't because he had the directions.

"Okay, I guess we start from the floor up with this thing so we are going to need these pieces" he said, allowing everyone to look at the directions before they quickly started to work together and start building the hot tub.

"Ugh! You see! The other team is already started! I told you we should have hurried and not waited for Owen to find his stupid trunks" Heather yelled as the other team apparently had to push, pull, and roll their crates to camp from the beach.

"They had carts. What do you expect" Trent said as he was a bit unsure why Heather was getting so angry at them.

"Whatever, just hurry and get the stuff out of the crates" she ordered as her team groaned and started to get things unpacked.

"Okay we're back! How can we help" Katie and Sadie said in unison as Bridgette helped them get caught up so they could continue building the hot tub.

With the speed they were going they were easily able to finish their tub, it looking like it did on the front of their instructions, by the time the other team was barely halfway done. Though since the challenge was 'who could make the best hot tub' they had to wait until the Gophers were able to complete theirs - which was held together with duct tape as the boards around the base were jagged.

Chris didn't take long to decide that the Killer Bass were the winners as the second he tapped the Screaming Gopher's tub it had fallen apart. "Killer Bass! Enjoy your hot tub part! Everyone else get changed and watch in jealousy. As an added benefit, since this is a party, Chef will bring your food here. Enjoy your hot tub" Chris said as the other team grumbled, upset that they lost as the Killer Bass cheered for their victory.

-Later that Night-

Gwen groaned as she tossed and turned in her bed, unable to sleep as the combination of crickets and ambient noises made it hard for her. Though just as she was about to head back to bed her ears picked up on the sounds of a guitar among the noises.

'He can't be out there playing. It's like three in the morning' Gwen thought as she silently slipped out of her bed and cabin, wearing a black shirt and black pajama pants as her sleepwear, before following the sound of the music.

She rose her brow in confusion as she found Naruto sitting in front of a lit campfire with his guitar in hand, leaning against a log before he noticed her and frowned.

"Drat, did I wake you up?" Naruto asked as Gwen shook her head and looked down at him.

"I couldn't sleep and I heard a guitar, figuring it was you, before I left to check. Why are you out here?" she asked as Naruto shrugged his shoulders.

"Can't sleep either, that and music helps me relax. My job keeps awake for long random periods of time so my sleep schedule has been messed up for a while. I already talked to Chris about it and he said this is fine as long as I put out my fire" he said before patting the log behind him with a smile.

"You can sit down if you want to. I always find if you can't sleep company helps pass the time awake" he added before Gwen shrugged her shoulders and sat down on the log before he slid up and sat next to her.

"So how was your hot tub party?" Gwen asked with a smirk as Naruto chuckled and shrugged his shoulders.

"Not really my kind of thing but at least the hot tub was relaxing. I tried to ask if some of you could join but my team was against it. If you want we can take a quick dip" Naruto said as he scratched his cheek with an embarrassed smile before Gwen rolled her eyes and shoved him playfully with a smile.

"Sorry but late at night isn't a good idea, maybe another time" she teased as he nodded and rubbed his chin.

"Rain check, got it. Though if you want we can start your guitar lessons" he said with a smile as he slipped the strap off his guitar off and offered his guitar over to Gwen.

"Wait you were actually serious about that?" she asked as he nodded with a smile.

"Of course, do you still want to learn?" he asked as she looked down at his guitar before looking back up at him and nodding.

"Sure but I can't promise I'll be a good student" she teased before he chuckled and slid the strap of the guitar over her.

"Nonsense it'll be fine. Now we'll start with the basics" he started as he showed her how to hold the guitar and where to put her fingers. The lesson went on until they both started to get drowsy and they decided to head back to bed, not aware of the smile and blush they both had as they enjoyed their time together.

Naruto couldn't help but smile as he silently put his guitar away 'This show might be even better than I thought at first' he thought, unaware of the matching thoughts that Gwen was having over in her cabin before he laid down, excited to see what tomorrow would bring.

-Chapter End-

**IMPORTANT NOTE** - As of 5/9/2019 I've decided to change the name of this fic and make it into a harem story since there are just too many amazing girls to not use and its something I can more easily enjoy and write easier.

Hope everyone is okay with that

I hope you like this Total Drama story. I love the series and I have wanted to write my own for a long time.

I am being a bit secretive about Naruto's past from his job, how he knows Fu and Killer Bee, and who his sister is but it will be revealed in time.

I won't be following the original Total Drama plot in terms of wins and losses as Naruto is bound to change things, like how he made Courtney less control hungry. That and Naruto's skills are bound to change things with his team as well.

Hope you all understand.

Till the Next Time

Drop a review!

See Ya!
