    Topher was one of the contestants of Total Drama: Pahkitew Island as a member of the Pimâpotew Kinosewak. He wants to take over Total Drama as a host in Chris' place, but usually fails at doing so.

    He was voiced by Christopher Jacot.

    Personality

    Topher is such a huge Chris McLean fan that he gave himself the nickname "Chris 2.0" and even has a cat named after Chef Hatchet. He frequently goes out of his way to try to talk to Chris, which usually causes him to hinder his team. Just like Chris, Topher can be quite arrogant and frequently admires himself. He joins the show not to win the prize money, but to replace Chris as the host, and will attempt to do so at any opportunity, whether it's by taking over his job in announcing the challenges or humiliating him on live TV. He is very ambitious in this endeavor, eventually stealing Chris' cell phone to contact the producers and frequently insulting Chris's age to imply that they need a younger host, such as himself. These situations beg the question of whether or not Topher truly does admire Chris or was just stroking his ego so as to lower his guard in his attempt to steal his job.

    Why He Doesn't Deserve to Be a Host on Total Drama

    1. He is basically a male rip-off of Sierra from World Tour; in fact, he's an even worse version of her; that he would make even her flanderization in All-Stars look like a good character.
    2. He may be a huge fan of the host, Chris, but he's one of those overbearing fans that tends to be annoying and obnoxious, as he tries way too hard to gain his attention.
    3. Thanks to being an overbearing fan, just like Leonard, he usually hinders his team.
      • In "Twinning Isn't Everything", he didn’t hit anyone at all during the Doom Balloon challenge; thanks to focusing on Chris, he got hit with a balloon himself from Dave.
      • In "Mo Monkey Mo Problems", he briefly left his team to steal Chris' phone and barely did anything to help them when he came back.
      • In "This Is the Pits!", he was more focused on Chris' phone than with helping Jasmine.
      • "Three Zones and a Baby" is his worst offender, as he was so focused on, the producers call via Chris’ phone that he messed up his team’s chances of winning, which got him voted off.
    4. He also cares too much about his looks as he tends to freak out whenever his hair gets messed up or if there's something in his hair, like how he got hit with a balloon filled with spiders and got said bugs in his hair in the Doom Balloon challenge.
    5. He often makes Chris freak out and annoyed by complaining about Chris’ age and looks that he looks too old to be a host.
    6. He tried to steal Chris’ job as host, like trying to host himself, which often annoyed him.
    7. He even went as far as to steal Chris’ phone, which makes him a criminal.
    8. He calls the producers to try to replace Chris as host, which is just cruel.
    9. He is also a very big coward, when shown to stay away and run whenever he faces something that could harm his looks.
    10. Out of the unlikable members of Team Pimâpotew Kinosewak, he is the one that made it the furthest, at least Sky was likable until the merge, while Topher was unlikable to begin with.
    11. He has also put his team in danger several times, like when he led Jasmine to a gopher tunnel, and when he almost got his team and himself killed by the lions, Pasta Bear, and causing a snow avalanche due to making noise.

    Qualities That Make Him Deserve to Be a Host on Total Drama

    1. He has a pretty good character design.
    2. Christopher Jacot did a spectacular job voicing him.
    3. Unlike Leonard, he isn't always a hindrance to his team. He helped build his team their shelter, got his team’s pig through the zip-line, didn't do a Truth or Scare since he never got landed on, and got his team a dueling stick.
    4. Some of his host lines are entertaining and hilarious to watch.
    5. He got his comeuppance for trying to steal Chris’ job in "Three Zones and a Baby", with Chris pretending to be a producer to throw him off and get him eliminated, even though this would negatively impact Chris’ career in real life.
    6. He has a few funny moments here and there.
