Jo was a camper in Total Drama: Revenge of the Island. She was originally on the Mutant Maggots, but switches to the Toxic Rats in Runaway Model. She later returns as a competitor in Total Drama All-Stars on the Villainous Vultures.
Role in the series
If one is looking for a friendship, Jo is not the person to run to. She is competitive to an enormous extent, strategic, and overall has a harsh personality that is difficult to break through. Jo believes that she is the strongest competitor and most deserving of the million dollar prize. She will turn anything to a competition, from breakfast to recovering from an unexpected event. She will even not hesitate to sacrifice the life of another if she deems necessary. Jo is power-hungry and lusts for control. She will fiercely fight for the position of team leader if she has to. She also views herself as being better than others, often looking down upon her teammates. Jo appears to be a tomboy, as shown in Runaway Model, in which she is completely disinterested in hair and fashion.
Despite this, Jo has implied that she actually does want such things as feeling beautiful and finding love. A few examples are when she takes on the responsibility of seducing Sasquatchanakwa and flirts with him. Additionally, in herbiography she says that the craziest dream she ever had is when she willingly let's a guy win because she found him "attractive," and in A Mine Is a Terrible Thing to Waste, she laments to Lightning that she's never had her first kiss, and since she is about to die, she regrets it. A running gag with Jo involves her using nicknames for the other contestants, generally as insults towards them or for an easy way to describe them. Such examples include "String bean" for Cameron, "Dud-can" for Duncan, "Ale-handwalker" for Alejandro, and many insults mocking Brick's pants wetting habit.
