Walk Like An Egyptian, Part 1

#5 - Walk Like An Egyptian, Part 1

Season 3 - Episode 1

The 17 contestants see the plane and all of the accommodations. They then compete in a challenge where they have to navigate around a pyramid to reach the finish line. They can choose to either climb on top of the pyramid, or go under the pyramid (a majority of the cast chose the latter). Duncan quits mainly due to refusing to sing and having to listen to Gwen and Courtney argue the whole way up the pyramid. Three teams are made (names chosen by the teams themselves) according to who finished the challenge first. They are also given a reward. DJ, LeShawna, Harold, Lindsay, and Bridgette are on Team Victory and are given a stick. Owen, Alejandro, Noah, Sierra, and Tyler are on Team Chris is Really Really Really Really Hot, and are given a goat. Courtney, Heather, Izzy, Cody, and Gwen are on Team Amazon and are given a camel. Ezekiel is the last to finish the race, but is not eliminated because of Duncan quitting, so Chris places him on Team Victory.

Hawaiian Punch

#7 - Hawaiian Punch

Season 3 - Episode 26

Total Drama World Tour has reached its final episode, where one of the final three will win a million dollars. Alejandro and Cody engage in a tie-breaker to determine a spot in the final two, and with one last manipulation from Alejandro, Cody gets eliminated. Chris then announces the final challenge with Heather against Alejandro which involves climbing Hawaii's active volcano with a wooden dummy of your opponent. During the challenge, Cody and Harold volunteer to help Heather, while Lindsay and Courtney choose to help Alejandro. In the end, Heather manages to trick Alejandro (by saying that she loves him), which distracts Alejandro, giving Heather the opportunity to bring Alejandro to his ultimate downfall in the game. However, after a misunderstanding, Alejandro still gets the win, after Heather throws Alejandro's dummy into the volcano. Later on, Ezekiel reemerges and steals the million dollar case from Chris, but then falls into the volcano (similar to the death of Gollum from The Lord of the Rings), and nobody gets the million dollars. The volcano then erupts, potentially harming everyone present, and Alejandro is the only one who suffers major injuries caused by the volcano's lava. Alejandro is then put inside a robot by Chef and Chris due to his extensive injuries, an obvious parody of the creation of Darth Vader from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
