Thomas "Tom" is a contestant on Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race as a member of The Fashion Bloggers team with Jen.


Tom is confident and tries hard, but doesn't have many skills beyond understanding fashion. He is always looking for new styles to try and never passes up the chance to show off his latest fashion trend, even if they aren't well received at first. Flamboyant, yet fabulous, he tends to comically overreact in dangerous situations, but is sure that his impeccable taste and trending skills will guarantee his victory.
