Total Drama Island Re-write
Episode 7: Phobia Factor (Alternate Ending)
Written by Dragonus-Prime
(This all takes place at the moment Chris and Chef are setting Courtney’s part of the Phobia Factor challenge. Chef Hatchet is mixing in the green jelly into the pool while Courtney looks up at the diving board in horror)
Duncan: You're scared of jelly?
Courtney: (turns and glares at Duncan) Shut up Duncan, okay? It’s only the green kind. It's like jiggling, sugary snot.
Courtney: Okay, the reason why I compared green jelly with snot is because of what happened when I was a kid. I used to love it as much as the other flavors, until my younger brother pulled a prank on me and sneezed into my bowl of green Jell-O. Haven’t looked at green jelly the same way again ever since. (cringes a little)
Chris: Well Courtney, you can face your fear and dive straight into this pool of jelly or let your team lose yet another challenge.
Courtney: (looks over to her team and takes a deep breath) I’ll do it. (confidently, if a little nervously walks over to the diving board) Even though I might die doing this. (starts climbing)
Gwen: (looking on) Oh. That is just cruel. It’s probably warm by now. Warm green jelly, snotty, bouncy, ugh!
Courtney: (to Gwen) Don’t try to zonk me out!
Duncan: That’s it, keep climbing!
Bridgette: (as Courtney keeps climbing) She’s just trying to psyche you out!
(Courtney makes it to the diving board and looks down, the pool of jelly looks like a small green circle from her perspective. She shivers a little.)
Duncan: Like you said, Courtney, it’s okay if you can’t do it.
Bridgette: (glares at Duncan) It is? But we’ll lose.
(Courtney readies herself to dive into the pool, but takes one look below her once again and gets rather nervous. Finally, her fear gets the best of her)
Courtney: I can’t do this guy. (sighs sadly) I’m coming down…
(But as she was about to walk off the diving board and climb down the ladder, Courtney suddenly slips, falls on her butt and bounces off the diving board and straight into the pool of jelly. Both teams look on in shock and surprise. Even Chris was surprised.)
Duncan: Well, didn’t expect that to happen.
Chris: Neither did I, but either way, the Bass pull through and wing invincibility this week. Hope that dive was well worth it Courtney. (looks at the pool as Courtney weakly climbs out) Courtney?
(Courtney somehow has a bloated stomach and is sniffling)
Courtney: I’m so embarrassed. How could I have just slipped like that? I should’ve just chickened out and go home. (shakes her head) Ugh! Okay, pull yourself together, girl! It won't be so bad. You still won for the team. (notices her belly, bloated and wobbling a little) Wait, how did that happen?
Owen: (settling in the pool of jelly) You’re right, Gwen. It is warm.
(cuts to evening as Courtney walks back to her team, she can’t but watch her now bloated stomach bounce and wobble around. Suddenly, Izzy walks up to Courtney from behind, grabbing her by the belly.)
Izzy: Hey Court, nice dive back there!
Courtney: (pulling Izzy’s hands off her stomach) I wouldn’t say that was a dive more than a slip.
Bridgette: (walks over to the two) Hey, sorry about what happened.
Courtney: (confused) What is to be sorry about? We won.
Duncan: See? I knew you can do it, Jelly Belly.
Courtney: Why do I have this weird feeling that that name is going to catch on?
Bridgette: So, what happened to your stomach?
Courtney: I’m not sure. I must’ve swallowed some of green jelly when I fell into the pool. (cringes a little from the thought)
Izzy: I think it looks cute on you. (pokes Courtney belly, causing it to wobble)
Courtney: Don’t patronize me, I had a rough day.
Duncan: She’s right, might as well turn in. Princess’s jelly belly won’t be around for long.
(As the Killer Bass head into their cabin, Chris was looking on before he pulls out a strange looking plastic bottle)
Chris: Oh, I wouldn’t bet on that. (chuckles a little before turning to the viewers) Well viewers, another team is safe this week. But will they stand their ground on the next challenge, and what surprises will Courtney find by then. Find out, next time on, Total. Drama. Island.
