Though Connor had already amassed a million-dollar fortune prior to signing up for Total Drama Alpharama, he decided to sign up anyway. While he is on the show, he wants to make it perfectly clear that even though he already has a million dollars, he wants to act more like Katrina, who he says would generally give her winnings to a charity of her choosing, than Alistair, who he says would just keep it for himself.
He is the class president, and believe it or not, it wasn't his financial status that got him this position, but rather his charisma and general appeal. He is generally liked by the other students at his school.
Despite his good-looking appearance, he currently has no plans to audition for any TV shows or movies other than Total Drama Alpharama, since he thinks just one TV show is enough for now.
