Josee is one of the main antagonists (along with her partner, Jacques) of the Total Drama spin-off Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race.
She was voiced by Julie Lemieux.
Josee is a Canadian figure skater whose dream was to win gold at the Olympics. When she finally got the chance, she was dropped by her partner Jaqcues on the ice and the two became national embarrassments. She joined the Ridonculous Race along with Jacques, so that they can prove that they are still winners and will do anything in their power to achieve this goal.
Josee is a crafty, conniving, manipulative, and duplicitous competitor, obsessed with gold medals and coming in first place. Even though she smiles all the time, she shown to be very snappy, impatient, and cantankerous, as well as short-tempered, obstreperous, and aggressive when things do not go her way. As the competition progresses, she and Jacques no longer try to hide their true nature and they become more ruthless and unsympathetic, even willing to betray and sabotage other teams. She is also known to be extremely superstitious and impressionable, as she carried around a lucky rabbit's foot until losing it in Transylvania, which she replaced with a piece of volcanic rock shaped like a trophy in Hawaii, unintentionally cursing them. As the race progresses, she along with her partner, started to cheat and no longer followed the rules in order to get in first place.
She likes to trash talk and cheat her way into victory, even stating that messing up with other teams is something she loves doing. Josee is also seemingly claustrophobic and oppressive, making her unable to think well in closed spaces and even making the illusion that she is running out of air to breathe. This unmerciful and inconsiderate behavior could be caused by the trauma she obtained after losing in the Olympics and becoming a national embarrassment, causing her to become frustrated when someone brings this up. She often blames Jacques for what happened in the Olympics and has never forgive him for this. But besides her negative feelings toward Jacques, she still thinks that he is an asset to the team and even showed signs of respect towards him.
