Elimination is the process in the Total Drama series where a contestant is removed from the competition, often occurring after they are voted for by the other members of their team or merged contestants.
Traditionally eliminations occur during a campfire ceremony. This is where Chris will hand out a marshmallowto the contestants who are safe, and whoever doesn't receive one is eliminated. Sometimes, no awards are handed out to anyone at all. Generally, elimination ceremonies happen after nightfall.
According to Chris, once a contestant walks the Dock of Shame in Total Drama Island,they can never come back, "ever." Also contestants can leave in sudden-death eliminations. Contestants may willingly quit the competition despite their teams winning, there being no elimination, or someone else on their team getting voted off.
