"I'm cool that Jasmine knows I'm not Amy, because we're pals. As for everyone else, I have to sound and look like my sister."
The Good Twin
16 (Total Drama: Pahkitew Island)
Media of origin:
Samantha "Sammy" (commonly called "Samey") is a contestant in Total Drama: Pahkitew Island, who is the twin sister of the hateful Amy. Sammy, on the other hand, is likable and nicer than her sister, being the good twin, and one of the good characters in the season.
She’s one of the Pahkitew Island contestants that were actually likable.
She is way nicer than her sister, Amy, and its definitely shown, even while pretending to be Amy, she still shows some of her nice traits.
We can feel sorry for her being in her sister’s shadow, being bullied and abused by Amy, and that she just wanted to get away from Amy and feel safe.
Thanks to advise from Jasmine, as well as learning from her and Shawn about the poisonous apple, she finally stood up to Amy in "Twinning Isn't Everything". She also gives Amy her comeuppance by tricking her into eating a poisonous apple, this led her to be unable to speak and get eliminated in Sammy's place as a result, which was satisfying (even if Amy unfairly returned two episodes later).
Her friendship with Jasmine is portrayed nicely and is one of the highlights of this season.
Besides Jasmine, she also got along with the other better members of her team, even while pretending to be Amy, which were Scarlett and Max.
She’s so kind, she didn’t even mind her more annoying teammates (with the exception of her sister), being Rodney and Topher.
She likes to help in anyway she can to others, like how she helped Jasmine forage for food.
She’s one of the good members of her team:
In episode 1, she helped her team build their shelter during the challenge.
In episode 2, she pulled her team’s pig to the grease pipes part of the challenge, and then the pig pulled her and Amy through the pipes to get to Scarlett.
In episode 3, she hit Dave during the doom balloon challenge.
In episode 4, in the Truth or Scare challenge, she told the truth that she hates her sister, while pretending to be Amy herself, which got her team a point, and thankfully, Jasmine stepped up to save her before she could get exposed.
In episode 5, she did get her team a dueling stick during the challenge.
She managed to be a good friend to her teammates, especially Jasmine, and unlike her sister, she managed to get used to their weirdness and work together with them.
Her design is pretty attractive and cute.
Bryn McAuley did a good job voicing her.
While her voice is good, it can get a little bit obnoxious at times, but not as much as Amy's voice.
She was a butt-monkey, mainly due to Amy bullying and abusing her, and making her look bad, which is what makes Sammy’s trick on Amy satisfying. Unfortunately, Amy returned in "A Blast from the Past", when Sammy was about to help her team win. This caused her team to lose as a result when Amy tackled her, and also resulted in both twins being eliminated.
In addition, Samey never returned in the finale of Pahkitew Island, meaning her conflict with Amy was never resolved.
While her revenge on Amy was well-deserved to the latter, it also forced her to behave more like her sister due to their switching places. Unfortunately, since Samey was only in two more episodes, this would mean that she would never get the proper character development outside of her relationship with Amy.
Samey is the first, and currently the only contestant to have tricked someone else into being eliminated in their place.
Samey is the only female contestant to be eliminated normally in Total Drama: Pahkitew Island.
Samey is the first contestant from the third generation cast to use the confessional.
