My fellow Total Drama fans, we've been passionate about this show for a long time now, and we've all loved this show for the good times it's given us, but we've also hated it for the aggravation it has at times caused us. Well now as we continue getting answers from Christian Potenza and producer Tom McGillis about what is going on behind the scenes in this show and its finally confirmed fifth season, we finally have something of a better idea of who's to blame for some of the show's bigger problems.

Watch this Q&A of Christian and Tom and listen to what they have to say about the questions given to them.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=aonKu9…

For those of you who are fans of Gwent and Duncney, and yes, even the Gwuncan fans, get this:

The decision to break up Gwent and Duncney was apparently a NETWORK REQUEST :jawdrop: :jawdrop: :jawdrop:

Total Drama is a victim not only of bad writing, but EXECUTIVE MEDDLING! :rage:

And wait until you hear what the reason was for this misguided request!

Total Drama fans, the time to act is NOW! If we want Season Five done right, if we have any hope of getting Duncney and Gwent back together like it should have been.......

(Sorry Gwuncan fans, but I never liked that couple and I sure as hell won't start now)

The time to get our voices out has come! :salute:

You can see the video, you see Christian's channel there, get your voices out! Whatever you can do to get your statements and protests out to the producers, DO IT. It is the only way.........

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S.: On a lighter note, to :iconmilayin: , the fan who made that animated video of herself to ask her questions, you are AWESOME! =D That's some fine fanmade animation right there, you should work at Fresh TV! Congrats on having your video and your questions featured!

No wonder the "breakups" of duncney and gwent were so out of character. Everything that was built up in first season became a slap in the face in second season.... loike -_- the dynamic was ruined.

I don't know if you read my last comment, but that was a really astupid stunt to pull. In my opinion, their characterizations suffered from season two onward. loike I dont wanna get passionate over this show, but when I think of the dynamic those two couples shared only for them to be ruined (along with geoff/bridgette, n' some others) for a "lesson to children" really ruined the show for me in my opinion.

nah. after how i saw how my babies were treated in action and  in like a quarter world tour, I couldn't stick with the old cast. literally I think I watched revenge and the other one (I forgot the name of the second new cast of teens) because I was tired of seeing their character butchered. Heh, I would, but I don't think i'd be to happy seeing your,and other fans reactions.

You're Absolutely Right! I couldn't have said it better myself, I've been wanting Trent and Gwen back together for years. I'm sick and tired of letting those Networks jerks push us around, we're the fans they should give us what WE not what THEY want and why we want is Gwent! WHO'S WITH ME?!

This one sucked the worst and is the fifth season I speak of in this journal, well before it debuted.

But anyway in general, the show hasn't exactly lived up to what Island gave us, I don't think.

Yeah, please find a way to save canon couples before fanon takes over again!

Find a way to counter the network request before it's too late! Why do fans alter TV shows anyway?

 

GxT and DxC 4ever! It's true love; DxG is all fake love! 

 

I also bet Megan Fahlenbock (Gwen's voice) also prefers Trent over Duncan.

Gwuncan is such fanon shit, isn't it?

Some moron executive thought it would be a good idea to break these two couples up, and pair Duncan and Gwen together, for both drama's sake and to "teach a lesson about young love and relationships". Well if they meant to teach us that it's okay to be unfaithful to your significant other rather than do the decent thing and break up if your relationship is in turmoil rather than backstabbing her with her best friend, well then I call major bullshit on that! :-X

Gwent and Duncney forever........Yeah. It's all dead now.

She didn't much care for what they did.

Yeah, that was totally true! It was fanon obsessed fans that ruined it with the stupid network request; worst thing in cartoon history to ever occur!

Is there a way to bring back canon couples? Some people tried writing to the creators about why fanon is bad, but is it ever going to stop fanon?

Anti-DxG 4ever! Save Gwent and Duncney now!

Well the network request was made by people inside Teletoon and Fresh TV, and possibly Cartoon Network, but yeah fuck that shit! Fuck that Gwuncan bullcrap, when are people going to learn that love triangles only lead to bad outcomes!

Fanon will always live on, but it should never be a main influence on the producers, at least not the fanon they're listening to. The canon couples may be as good as dead now. I honestly don't want Duncney coming back after what Duncan did to Courtney.

Gwuncan must DIE.

There must be a way to bring back canon pairings too.

Well the fanbase displeasure with some of the things they keep doing ought to clue them in on what ought to be done to fix them, but they're not particularly good at taking out complaints into account.

I doubt it, Duncney shouldn't come back after all that happened and Gwent may sadly be too far gone.

Yes and in all stars Duncney has a moment and they get their feelings for eachother back. A punk dude with a goth chick just doesn't mesh.

Well I don't want Duncan together with either of them. He's treated them both like shit and isn't deserving of either. I'm glad Gwen isn't paying that much attention to him.

Sorry. Fresh bitches. Also known in my dictionary as new characters or more bad ass people. Like Jo and Zoey.  Or more mental ones like Izzy or Mike.

Duncan needs a new girl. They do both treat him bad but he also lets it happen. He chose to people who didn't fit him to date. Well the producers chose.

:iconakira500:

Oh, right.

Duncan's to blame for what happened to those two and he's downright unsympathetic. Both girls deserve far better and both girls would be smart to stay away from him.
