OverviewEditLightning is an arrogant jock who strives to be the best there is. These egotistic tendencies from Lightning have made him a very unpopular contestant amongst his peers. Unlike most other contestants though, Beth is very patient towards Lightning. Beth is usually civil towards most people, unless they personally anger her. She considers Lightning harmless, although does show confusion whenever Lightning commits odd actions. Despite this, there have been times where Lightning has insulted Beth's looks, which she does not appreciate, but holds in this frustration. They are both placed on the same team in Total Drama Around the World and once they and Anne Maria are the last remaining members, the three have a friendly bond with each other, and form an alliance in Aloha, Merge! However, after Lightning's friend Alejandro is eliminated, one of the people he blames for this is Beth, thinking that she is a betrayer. However, Lightning soon learns that Beth wasn't exactly to blame and quickly forgives her.
They are once again placed on the same team in Total Drama Toxic Brawl, and form another alliance after putting aside their differences. Lightning seems to have learned to act more civil towards Beth, even complimenting her now and again. However, in Monster Falls when Lightning wins the trivia challenge and Beth comes last and is eliminated, he reverts back to his arrogant self and rubs this victory in Beth's face. In Toxic Battle for a Not So Toxic Prize, Beth chooses to root for Staci over Lightning, although adds that she doesn't mind who wins. It is unknown what both think of each other. In Total Drama All-Stars Take 2 they have limited interaction due to being placed on opposing teams and because of Beth's early elimination. However, when Beth is eliminated in The Rake-age Lightning is surprisingly disappointed, as he may have tried to ally with Beth a third time.
She tells Lightning that Cameron isn't actually there, and that he should stop trying to strangle him, to which she is ignored. Lightning is the first one to find the location which happens to be an outhouse, and she says that the underground door must be where Cameron is. Lightning repeatedly slams the code that will open the door to Cameron, but Beth tells him to stop.
The two speak about the confusing relationship Lightning has with Anne Maria, and that if they do not lose these next 3 challenges, the three of them will be in the merge. The two are paired up together for the bobsleigh challenge. When they go to do the challenge, Lightning calls Beth a non-pretty girl (which she does not appreciate), and to cling on and caress the muscles on him, since it will be the closest she gets to an attractive man, which she is not pleased by. Soon enough, they fall off, and they are given the highest mark for the challenge, and they hug when they get a victory.
After Lightning says that their team needs to win again, Beth comments that since they didn't lose last time, they should be fine because they no longer have a numbers disadvantage. For the challenge, Lightning dances with Beth, and twirls her around, but ultimately fails when they both lose.
After Lightning and Anne Maria say they need to win, Beth agrees
The two, along with Alejandro and Anne Maria, form an alliance so they can have the majority vote.
Beth decides to vote off Alejandro instead of sticking with voting off Eva and Amy, causing Lightning to yell at everyone (including her) for making a dumb choice, and for turning on the alliance.
Lightning yells at everyone, including Beth, in the beginning, calling her a coward, pathetic, a backstabber and a traitor for voting off their own ally, and cuts off all ties with her, even though she technically did not betray the alliance. He promises to make everyone's life miserable for as long as he is in the game, including Beth.
Lightning apologizes to Beth, saying that he re-watched the past season, and found out that she was loyal to him, which she accepts.
After forming an alliance with her (and Courtney), they try to decide who to vote off, but nothing came of it. When Lightning and Scott speak, Lightning tells Scott that he does not trust Courtney fully, like he trusts Beth, and is told to mess with Courtney first. Lightning soon approaches Courtney and Beth to ask for who they should vote off, only to not notice that Tyler is eavesdropping and assumes that they have an alliance.
After being encouraged by Lightning and Scott, she is ready to eat the next dish, until hearing that it is apparently "Rotten Cheese with maggots on top", which causes her to puke the minute she takes one bite.
Lightning tells Beth to jump on his back so it would be easier for them. However Scarlett and Staci surprisingly was able to surpass them. When the two decide to vote off Brick, Lightning comments saying they did him a favor since he did almost die.
Beth ends up rooting for Staci to win, over Lightning in the finale. In the rope cutting challenge, Beth states that she doesn't mind who wins, but she then cuts Lightning's rope.
