This article focuses on the interactions between Jo and Lightning.



Lightning's plan to eliminate Jo fails.

Jo and Lightning are both proud jocks, who often clash because they each feel they are the best contestant. The latter also used to mistake the former for a male, something Jo does not take lightly, confronting him at her every opportunity. Both have a rough history together, with the latter eliminating the former in Total Drama Revenge of the Island, and vice-versa in Total Drama All-Stars. In Total Drama Around the World hints of their history are shown, such as Lightning's relief with Jo not competing in the season, and their tension when Jo is a helper for an episode.

In Total Drama Toxic Brawl both are on the Mutant Laser Squirrels and as a result of this, are determined to eliminate each other. Jo thinks of Lightning as too selfish and competitive, whereas Lightning thinks Jo is manipulative, bossy, and over-strategic. Because of past history of alliances they form not going so well, they usually keep their distance from each other during most challenges despite being on the same team as each other. Their eliminating attempts don't seem to work in either's favor for a long time. Things become more heated between the two as the game draws closer to a close in Monster Falls. However, in Sleepless in Awkwanawaw, Jo is brutally injured by Dave, and Lightning, despite his conflict with Jo, attempts to save her life, but she is ungrateful of his help, bringing them back to their conflict. At the end of the season, Jo roots for Staci over Lightning for having a huge dislike for him.

In the confessional, Lightning is confident that Jo will be eliminated next, saying it's very obvious before he smirks to himself. As Jo does pushups, she says she's going to take down everyone, wanting to take down Lightning first. As Jo walks to the challenge, she tells Lightning that she hopes the so-called steroids get him out of the camp, while calling him the usual "Brightning." As he runs, Lightning replies that he hopes Jo doesn't throw a tantrum when she loses, reminding her of the times that she has in the past. Jo speaks back that Lightning is one to talk, as he bi***ed when his girlfriend voted out Alejandro. Jo also points out that Lightning went bat sh** crazy ready to kill people when Alejandro was eliminated, asking if Lightning is still on trial for that, going this far with the lies. In the confessional, Jo brings up how pathetic it is that everyone is scared of Lightning and Scarlett, thinking of herself as much scarier. When Lightning is disappointed he's not getting any points, Jo says that he's not answering crap, and then asks everyone how dumb they are to take him this far. She is proven wrong when Lightning does manage to get a question wrong, and punches him in the face, making him scream and fall down. As Chris says that if Jo keeps up her violence she will be disqualified, Lightning cheers at this announcement.

As Jo gets more points, she asks how much more she needs to whoop everyone with her immunity, including Lightning. Lightning is worried at her skill in the challenge, wondering what'll happen if she wins, giving a frightened look. Since Jo successfully wins the challenge, she gets bored as it continues, but believes that "Sha-Steroids" cannot get himself out of this one.

Sleepless in AwkwanawawEdit

At a feast, Jo pushes Lightning away so she can eat meat. Despite Lightning's conflict with Jo, after Dave, thanks to his insanity, stabs Jo and causes her to bleed, Lightning saves her life by wrapping his shirt around her leg.

Lightning smiles when Scarlett eliminates Jo.

He throws a tantrum and blames Jo for him not winning during the challenge, while calling her Joanna.
