Ryan is a contestant and season runner-up in Total Drama Roleplay. He participates in two seasons of the series, placing second in "Total Drama: Return to the Island" and third in "Total Drama: Heroes vs. Villains".
During his time in "Total Drama: Return to the Island", Ryan is placed on the Toxic Gophers. He conflicts with mostly all of his peers, particularly Quinford and Vanessa, and earns a reputation as one of the most hated cast members. Ryan also coaxes Alex and Ethan into an alliance, but it disbands when they begin to dislike him. Ryan eventually loses the season after his opponent Vanessa beats him in the finals.
Finally, Ryan returns to compete in "Total Drama: Heroes vs. Villains" and is placed on the Villainous Vultures. He starts a rivalry with Samantha and later attempts to form an alliance with Dirk to eliminate her. Throughout the season, Ryan's reputation changes and he manages to befriend Alex, Brandon, Ethan, and Vanessa, his most hated rivals. His stretch in the competition comes to an end when he is defeated by Ethan and Trixie in the season's final challenge. Ryan is last seen in "The Very Last Episode, Really This Time!" boating away from the island with Alex, Brandon, Ethan, Samantha, Trixie, and Vanessa.
