James Cameron is a Hollywood director and deep-sea explorer who appears in the Season Sixteen episode, "Raising the Bar". The plot was a reference to James's record-setting solo dive into the Mariana trench on March 26, 2012.
With the help of his crew of the USS James Cameron, James travels to the lowest depths of the ocean to raise "the bar" on society's acceptance of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" as well as obesity. The "Ballad of James Cameron" about his expedition plays twice in the episode.
James Cameron has gray hair and a gray beard. He wears a black shirt, a black and blue deep-sea diving suit, black gloves, black diving pants, and black shoes.
Unlike other Canadian celebrities on the show, he has the traditional appearance of a South Park character rather than the beady-eyed look of many Canadian characters.
