But the plan backfires when the show suggests bringing the show to Austin and watching him perform from the campground. On the day they're leaving, Ally suggests that Austin could sing his song as a gift for the kids, since it is centered on Pioneer Rangers.

The Rangers are told to stall the broadcast by tying the host to a stump with a impossible knot and then trapping the rest of the crew in a tent so that Austin doesn't have to go live. In the end, Austin doesn't have to perform live after a bear gets on the campsite.
