|“||Australia is home to eleven of the world's deadliest creatures. Oh, and our toilets do not flush backwards. I think that's about all you need to know about where I'm from.||„|
Jasmine, labeled The Australian Outback Girl, is the tritagonist of Total Drama: Pahkitew Island.
She was voiced by Katie Bergin.
Raised in the harsh conditions of the Australian outback, Jasmine is an expert survivalist and a very outgoing, intimidating, but also kind leader. She can "make the oddest scraps useful, find water in unlikely places and make shelter at a moment’s notice." She is quick to take charge and can seem commandeering and intimidating. However, she actually has a big heart underneath her tough exterior. She is kind to anyone who shows her respect, and can be quite encouraging, motherly, and loyal. She has also been shown to be stubborn, holding a grudge for a substantial amount of time. According to Jasmine herself, people are intimidated by her for both her bossiness and her height, and as a result, she does not have many friends. She does not take pride in her stature and attitude, constantly worrying about how she comes across to others. Her ability to make friends has also been hindered by this. As displayed in Lies, Cries and One Big Prize, Jasmine will not place the prize money over her closest relationships, even if she has been angered by them.

Upon her first appearance, Jasmine immediately leaves a strong impression on others. From her staggering height, which startles the likes of Amy, to her skillful leadership where she takes charge of her team. Her efforts secure the first two wins for her team, as well as giving them an amazing shelter to reside in. She also gains the affection of two boys, but only returns her feelings towards Shawn.

Jasmine also develops a close friendship with Samey, who accompanies her each morning to forage for food. Jasmine also acts as a surrogate big sister to Samey, after witnessing her mistreatment at the hands of her real sister. Jasmine constantly comforts Samey, and encourages her to stand up to Amy. By "Twinning Isn't Everything", Jasmine becomes directly involved in the twins' conflict, and supports Samey throughout their exchanges. This reaches a point where Jasmine joins in a fight Amy and Samey over a balloon. However, during the struggle, the balloon bursts, covering all three of them in paint and costing them the challenge. In the end, Jasmine and Samey triumph over her sister, where Samey manages to trick Chris into eliminating Amy. Following Amy's departure, Jasmine continues to help Samey (now posing as Amy), and keeps reminding her to act more like Amy. During the "Truth or Scare" challenge, Samey is at risk of having her identity exposed, when she is forced to confess she hates "Amy" during an interrogation. So Jasmine covers for her by reassuring her that she wasn't at fault for Samey's failures.

Nonetheless she continues to help Samey in posing as Amy, and continues reminding her to act meaner. When Shawn is brought back, Jasmine is immediately relieved. However she faces the predicament that if Shawn lost he would be eliminated, so she resorts to letting him win. As Jasmine and Shawn charge at each other with jousting sticks, Jasmine purposely misses, only for Shawn to brutally knock her into the water (due to Dave tricking him into thinking she's a zombie). Jasmine does not take to this well, feeling she made a "big mistake" in liking Shawn. Shortly afterwards, Amy makes a surprise return, which Jasmine immediately notes "could be trouble".

Jasmine at first believes it to be Sky's doing, but Max foolishly takes credit for the deed. This further escalates Jasmine's hatred for Max, and she informs him that he would be certain of being the next one eliminated. After finally escaping from the net, Jasmine rushes back to Chris with the coin. Just when she is about to reach the vending machine, Sugar manages to throw her team's coin into the slot, and snatches victory much to Jasmine's shock.
