Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race (also known as Total Drama: Ridonculous Race, or simply The Ridonculous Race) is a Canadian animated reality television series which lampoons the conventions commonly found in reality television. The show is a spin-off of the original Total Drama series created in 2007 and the second series created as part of the overall franchise, the series is created by Fresh TV Inc. and distributed by Cake Entertainment and airs on Cartoon Network in North America. The series premiered in the United States on September 7, 2015,[2] and then began airing in Canada on January 4, 2016,[3][4] it also aired on ABC3 in Australia, starting December 12, 2015. Like the original series, this series consists of 26 episodes per season.[5]

There is currently no announcement for a second season.

Plot[edit]

The series parodies popular travel and competition style reality shows, including The Amazing Race,[6] it takes place around the world and features pairs of contestants, rather than teams, in the style of the reality series it is parodying.

The first season of The Ridonculous Race consists of mostly all new characters, with four characters - Geoff, Leonard, Noah, and Owen returning from the original Total Drama series. All characters will be split into 18 teams of two, and must complete challenges around the world to win and split a one million Canadian dollar prize.[2]

Racers visit a different country in every episode and perform in "legs" while the team to finish in last place may or may not be eliminated;[7] in each of the 26 different locations, each pair must go to a "Don box" to receive clues that let them decide which challenge they want to perform in.

Challenges are of four different types: an "either-or" (similar to Detours from The Amazing Race), a "botch-or-watch" (similar to Roadblocks), an "all-in" or a "superteam'. An "either-or" gives the teams a choice from two challenges, the "botch-or-watch" is a challenge that must be done by one person on the team, specifically the person who did not take on a prior challenge's component, an "all-in" is a challenge that both team members must take part in, and a "super team" is a challenge in which multiple teams complete together in a challenge.

However, at some point in the game if any person doesn't follow the specific directions of the challenge, they will be faced with a timed penalty once reaching a "Chill Zone", the finish line for each leg, before stepping foot on the "Carpet of Completion".

Voice Cast and characters[edit]

Characters in bold are reused characters from the original series while the rest are new. However, some voice actors and actresses who previously worked on Total Drama returned to voice new characters.

Production[edit]

Production commenced on January 1, 2014 and concluded on October 30, 2015,[8] it was announced that Alex Ganetakos was producing the show,[9] Terry McGurrin was writing the screenplay,[10] and that Chad Hicks was directing.[11] The new host Don was revealed in a Fresh TV post in October 2014,[12] it was confirmed that 26 episodes would be picked up for the show and that it would air sometime the same year.[13] However, one of the producers, Alex Ganetakos, stated that many Ridonculous Race seasons are possible if the first season is successful;[14] in June 2015, the entire first episode was leaked online, revealing all of the characters three months before Fresh TV could release their designs in their website.

Casting[edit]

Even though some of the characters from the main series will make appearances, the spin-off series will primarily have a new cast,[15] the spin-off series will be a "Buddy Comedy" and will include 36 characters (18 teams of two), four which are from the original series (Geoff, Leonard, Noah, and Owen) and the rest brand new characters.[2] Kristin Fairlie, the voice actor for the character Bridgette from the original series, was cast to voice one of the new contestants, Carrie.[16] Scott McCord (voice of characters Owen and Trent in the original series) as well as Carter Hayden (voice of Noah in the original) were also revealed to be returning to the cast, and were seen in the recording studio together.[17] It was later confirmed that the actors were indeed going to voice the characters Owen and Noah,[18] it was eventually revealed that the first pair is to be the aforementioned character Carrie and her best friend Devin, who is played by Jeff Geddis.[19] In February, the second pair was revealed: Stephanie and Ryan, the two are voiced by Nicki Burke of Dead Rising 2 and Joseph Motiki, from Rescue Heroes.[20] In a new promotion by Cake Entertainment, Geoff was also revealed to be among the returning cast, teamed up with Brody, one of his friends from home,[21] the father-son team of Dwayne and Dwayne Jr. was also revealed.[22]

In June, a pair of goths called Ennui and Crimson, and Mary and Ellody, two close friends who are dubbed the "Geniuses", were revealed with news that returning voice actors Carter Hayden and Emilie-Claire Barlow (voice of Courtney) from the original series would play them.[23][24] A week later, the fourth pair to be released are Emma and Kitty, who are Asian sisters with opposite personalities, referred to as the "Sisters".[25] A week later, another team was confirmed; Chet and Lorenzo, known as "the Stepbrothers".[26] Next to be revealed are twins Mickey and Jay, called "the Adversity Twins", who are plagued with countless phobias, allergies, injuries, disorders, and ailments,[27] the rest of the teams were all revealed shortly thereafter.

Setting[edit]

Many countries and their geographic elements are used as settings for the whole series, with a different country used for each episode,[7] the starting point for the first episode is the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada,[28] where characters must then travel to many other locations throughout the race. The countries that are shown in the series for the characters to visit are: Argentina,[29] Australia,[30] the Bahamas,[31] Brazil,[32] China,[33] Finland,[34] France,[35][36] Iceland,[37] India,[38] Indonesia,[39] Mexico,[40] Morocco,[41] New Zealand,[42] Romania,[43] Russia,[44] Vietnam,[45] Zimbabwe,[46] the United Arab Emirates,[47] and the United States.[48][49][50] They also enter the Arctic Circle during a leg that leads them back to Canada,[51][52] the finish line is located in New York City.

Since Geoff & Brody's taxi was damaged by the ice dancer's taxi, they took the subway and get a huge lead so they reach Central Park first with the case. Meanwhile, the other two teams are stuck in heavy traffic so they both reach Central Park much later, but almost at the same time. Therefore, the police cadets reach the chill zone first by a few seconds while the ice dancers are finally eliminated from the race, the final challenge is to take the case to the lake and then try to figure out the combination that is being written on one of several buoys, and then open the case that will reveal a map that leads to the finish line. The surfers already had their lead, but are looking in the wrong place so the police cadets begin searching first in the lake, the cadets are the first to open up their briefcase, but MacArthur accidentally puts a hole in their boat, forcing her to row as fast as she can to shore, tiring her out. Geoff gives a motivational speech to Brody as they find their combination and make it to the finish line first. It's a neck to neck battle between the surfers and the police cadets, but in the end the police cadets win, but only by a close second. All the other teams who were previously eliminated are mostly seen cheering at the finish line, and Don declares MacArthur and Sanders as the winners of the race, so they are given the one million dollar prize.

  • Alternate ending: The surfers stand on the final carpet first so they are declared as winners of the race while the cadets arrive a moment later. After reminiscing about how great the race was, MacArthur tells Brody to keep in touch. Subsequently, the last scene of the season is edited to depict the surfers holding the million dollar prize, while the cadets are standing out with the rest of the teams in the peanut gallery.
