Gwen and Owen are the only contestants who don't show their audition tapes in this season.
Goof: Although Lindsay is shown sitting on Gwen's side at the beginning of the episode, when Gwen comments on Heather's wig and she replies "Bite me", Lindsay's face can be seen in the lower left corner.
When Gwen says "Nice rug" to Heather, she says "Bite me". When this episode aired on the Cartoon Network, Heather's line was changed to "Shut it".
After Heather sings the laxitive song, she says "Sucker". When this episode aired on the Cartoon Network, she says "Doofus".
When this aired on the Cartoon Network, Heather's line "Can't you idiots do anything right?" was changed to "Can't you fools do anything right?".
When Owen becomes the winner of TDI, he says "This has been just..." and everyone else asks, "Awesome?". This is similar to the line that he used in Not So Happy Campers (Part 1) when he first arrived .
When this episode aired on the Cartoon Network, the new intern who fell into the shark infested waters has a different look. That's because it is from the person who won the contest in the states.
In the Cartoon Network airing of this episode, when Owen got the final marshmallow as the winner of Total Drama Island, he said "I'll treasure it for the rest of my life, oh screw it, I'll buy all the marshmallows I want now", this was changed to "I'll treasure it for the rest of my life, whatever, I'll buy all the marshmallows I want now".
In the Cartoon network airing of this episode, when Owen was sliding down the pole, his line "Oh crap, that hurts" Was changed to "Oh crud that hurts".
One of Owen's lines in this episode is "Alexander the frickin' Great, that's a deep gorge!". On Cartoon Network, "frickin' " was changed to "insanely".
When Heather was shaved in the previous episode, she still had some hair on her head, but in this episode, she's completely bald.
It is revealed in this episode that apparently Chef used to work in a prison.
When Owen first arrives at the gorge, he is holding the eagle's egg. However, when the camera cuts to a closeup of him and Heather, she is holding the egg.
Goof: Somehow LeShawna is able to grab Heather, stuff her in the confessional outhouse that Owen had used, and get back to the finish line before Owen and Gwen could finish the race.
The campers in the confessional for this episode were Gwen, Owen, Heather and Courtney.
Although all the campers are seen in this episode, the only campers that have lines in this episode were:
Almost everyone is seen and heard cheering for Owen when he wins.
When Gwen is next to the gorge that she has to cross, she says, "I'm gonna die now. I'm gonna freakin' die". This was first said by Owen in Not So Happy Campers (Part 2) when he's about to jump off the cliff. In the Cartoon Network airing of this episode, it was changed to "I'm gonna totally die!"
Gwen says that the only campers she thought were sane were Owen, DJ, Bridgette, LeShawna and Cody.
During the episode, Gwen and Owen had to wear hats that looked like farm animals. Gwen had to wear a chicken hat (as some people did in Not So Happy Campers (Part 2)) and Owen had to wear a cow hat.
Heather is locked in the confessional outhouse by LeShawna near the end of the competiton.
Owen said he'd use the prize money to throw the biggest party ever and that everyone from the show would be invited.
Gwen planned to use the half of the prize money to go to university to study art. The other half would've gone to Owen.
The people who stayed in support of Gwen were Trent, Cody, Eva and LeShawna.
The competition was split into three parts:
1: Climbing the pole and grabbing the flag.
2: Walking while carrying an eagle egg over a gorge on a thin plank of wood above man-eating sharks and avoiding angry eagles.
3: Running all the way back to the finish line.
Heather's wig looks the similar to the ones that Lindsay and Sadie had to wear in Phobia Factor.
Heather is still bald from the events seen in I Triple Dog Dare You.
The tactics that Heather uses to cheat are a laxative cupcake, taking off Justin's shirt and greasing the pole.
The cast throws Chris into the water after the campfire ceremony.
The winner of Teletoon's contest to get a spot on a Total Drama Island episode has a brief role as an intern testing out the final challenge.
Gwen: Good luck, Owen. If I have to lose to anyone today, I'm glad it's you.
Owen: Awww, thanks. I hope you lose, too.
Heather: Can't you idiots do anything right?
LeShawna: Oh, that is it! I have had it with that girl! (she picks up Heather, throws her in the confessional and locks the door)
Owen: That's a really good-lookin' cupcake you got there. It's all chocolatey...and gooey...
Gwen: (smiles, then rolls her eyes) Knock yourself out. (walks away)
Owen: (eats cupcake) Oh, yeah...that's a GOOD cupcake!
Heather: It's amazing how easy it is to tamper with baked goods! (holds up laxative) Fast acting...for strong, reliable relief! Sucker!
Gwen: What did I think of the people here? They sucked. They were nothing but a bunch of backstabbing, manipulative, two-timing, fame-hungry, dim-witted, certifiably insane, really weird, psychotic, redneck, overbearing, goody-goody, know-it-all, party obsessed JERKS.
Chris: Gwen is now starting the second challenge.
Trent: What are the eagle eggs for?
Chef Hatchet: (laughs) Oh, you'll see.
Gwen: (looking at Heather's wig) Nice rug.
Heather: Oh, bite me!
Courtney: Then again, danger is kinda hot!!
Owen: Gordie Howe, I am tired!
(after Owen and Gwen find out bald eagles are chasing them while on the balance beam)
Courtney: Why would I want to watch Gwen and Owen risk their lives?
Duncan: This is life at it's most raw. Check out Elvis here with his guitar. (Duncan points at Trent gripping his guitar) One miss step and his girlfriend is shark bait.
(Gwen and Owen are walking across the wooden beam over the gorge holding eagle eggs)
Courtney: What? You mean you like watching this? They could die.
Duncan: Oh, mellow your yellow, babe. This is awesome TV.
(eagles scream) Owen: Ahh! Gwen: What was that?! Chris: Angry eagle parents. Duncan: Ohh, snap..(Duncan slaps Chris' hand on the down low)..that is messed up!
(in the confessional)
Courtney: Duncan is so immature. What is it about almost dying and bodily functions that guys love?
Chef: "Less rat droppings". Does this look like a five-star restaurant to you?
Trent: You okay?
Gwen: Yeah, just don't make me come between Owen and a brownie.
Owen: I can make it... I can make it... great Zeus, it hurts!!
Chris: After eight grueling weeks, I hereby announce the winner of Total Drama Island: Owen!
Owen: Wow! I can't believe it. This has been just...
Everyone else: Awesome?
Trent: Come on, you have to be a little bummed you lost.
Gwen: Yeah, but I came second out of twenty-two. That's gotta be good, right?
Owen: Some of these chicks are really freaking me out. Maybe I won't invite them to the party... (laughs)
Chris: Owen, it gives me great pleasure to give you the true symbol of survival. The final marshmallow.
Owen: I'll treasure it forever. Ah, screw it! I can buy all the marshmallows I want now. (he eats the mashmallow).
(after Owen smells brownies)
Gwen: Well, at least not all of you are total sellouts.
Owen: Oh, I almost forgot. (about the party) It's gonna be on a yacht!
(Lindsay walks over to Owen's team)
Chris: No, no, guys...my hair! DUUUUUUUUUUDES!!! (gets thrown into the lake by Owen, Duncan, DJ, Chef and Geoff)
Courtney: You're still not my type.
Duncan: You make me sick.
Gwen: (to Trent) Aren't you forgetting something? (looks at the boulder he was carring. Trent then picks her up) Hey. Put me down!
Trent: Say that you'll go out with me. C'mon, say it.
Gwen: (giggling) Alright, I'll go out with you.
Owen: I'm a one hundred-thousand-dollar-ionare!
Chris: (to the intern/TDI contest winner) Now, I know you're starting at the end of show, but all of our interns died already. I need you to test this competition to see if it's safe.
(the intern starts walking across)
Chris: Don't look down, dude!
(the intern falls in the middle of it)
Chris: It seems safe enough.
(Owen heads for the confessional out house)
Chris: No, Owen, not the confessional!
Izzy: C'mon, Owen, go faster! (scarier tone) Move it!
Gwen: Well, if I get through this, I can probable survive the rest of high school.
Chris: (after Gwen says how she's gonna spend the money) Well, that's sweet. Boring, but sweet.
Gwen: (about Heather) Why is she so happy?
Owen: I dunno, maybe she's just happy for us.
Gwen: You don't have a negative thought about anything, do you?
Gwen: What do I think about my eight weeks being here? It sucked, that's what.
Chef: Ya think it's easy cookin' for twenty-two teenagers? I had better jobs in prison.
Gwen: (to Heather): Oh c'mon, you have to admit that it is good to see them getting it.
Heather: Yeah... (smiling) maybe...
Gwen: You still stink though.
Lindsay: Oh No! Gwen is winning! Our yacht party is in jeopardy!
Geoff: Dudes, we have to do something!
Izzy: Wait! I have an plan! Has anybody seen a really big electric fan here!?
Chris: Sure. Got one in my trailer.
Geoff: You do?
Chris: Do you think I get this wind-blown look naturally?
Izzy: Get it and meet me back here. RUN!
(The campers grab Chris and throw him into the lake)
Chef: I've been wanting to do that all summer! Take that, pretty boy!
Geoff: Oh, Chef...
Owen: (cheering) You're next, dude!
Owen: Alexander the frickin great, that's a deep gorge!
Gwen: I'm gonna die now, I'm gonna fricking die!
