Topher was a camper on Total Drama Island as a member of the Screaming Gophers, he returned for Total Drama Action as a Killer Grip and became one of the finalists of the season. He did not qualify for Total Drama World Tour but was seen as a commentator on the Total Drama World Tour Aftermath. He was seen on the yacht first episode of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island with the other original contestants.
Topher is such a huge Chris McLean fan, that he gave himself the nickname "Chris 2.0", and even has a cat named after Chef Hatchet. He frequently goes out of his way to try to talk to Chris, which usually causes him to not be very much help for his team. Just like Chris, Topher can be quite arrogant and frequently admires himself. He joins the show not to win the prize money, but to replace Chris as the host, and will attempt to do so at any opportunity, whether it's by taking over his job in announcing the challenges or humiliating him on live TV. He is very ambitious in this endeavor, frequently insulting Chris's age to imply that they need a younger host, such as himself. These situations beg the question of whether or not Topher truly does admire Chris, or was just stroking his ego so as to lower his guard in his attempt to steal his job.
