The paranoid doomsayer. Shawn isn't one of those crazy guys that believe the Zombie apocalypse will come, he believes its already here! He came to Total Drama because he thought an isolated island would drastically lower the chances of mass Zombie attack. He drinks coffee 24/7 to stay alert and warns his team of the impending attack. "Any second now. Look alert! Is that you being alert? Cause you're looking like zombie snack to me." At the first hint of danger he abandons his team to hide, terrified. If he wins the money he's going to build a Zombie-proof shelter. He's addicted to horror movies & horror video games and is obsessed with many known conspiracy theories and keeps coming up with crazier and crazier theories of his own.
Shawn has spent his entire life training and preparing for a zombie apocalypse. His fear is so intense that he will become nervous the very moment one seems to be around, sometimes retreat without investigating fully, and even neglect to think about his own feelings. His survivalist mentality is constantly active, which can come in handy during challenges. However, it can also doom his team, as he will abandon them in favor of protecting himself. He is otherwise remarkably loyal to them, contributing to the best of his ability. He is so athletically talented that he can hop from tree to tree with little difficulty, single-handedly destroy an army of robots, and swipe a crystal without his teammates noticing. Shawn is happy to share his survival expertise with those in need. While his caring personality allows him to get along with most others, but his fear of the undead can cause him to distance himself from potential friends. He is eventually able to put his friendships in front of his fear of zombies come the finale.
Total Drama: Pahkitew Island
In So, Uh, This Is My Team?, Shawn isn't shown to be doing very much, and is introduced to be one of the fourteen new contestants competing in the season. He attempts to use soup as one of the house's ingredients, to which Dave mocks him about. He is later shown sneaking off into the forest, and goes into the confessional. He comments that he doesn't want to spend the night with a bunch of strangers that could turn into zombies at any time. His team loses the challenge, but he receives a marshmallow at the elimination ceremony.
