Dwayne is a contestant on Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race as a member of The Father & Son team with Junior.
Dwayne is a father from the suburbs with a great family and a son, who he believes is growing up too fast. He signed them up for the show as a great way to spend some time with his son, show him the world, and maybe share a few laughs. Dwayne is blessed in the good intentions department, but totally lacking in street smarts; he's hopelessly ignorant about the world outside of North American life.
