The Wanted Ted or Alive finale starts off with a continuation of the scarecrow challenge from the previous episode. The scarecrow challenge comes down to Joey and Carl. Joey tries the tactic of spitting on Carl. While trying to dodge Joey’s spit, Carl breaks one of the rules of the competition by letting his other foot touch the post. Joey wins the challenge and a $5,000 reward.
After the spitting incident, Joey tries to shake hands and make up, but Carl refuses to shake hands with someone that would stoop to spitting on him. Big Jim comes in and stirs thing up by saying he thought that the spitting was rude and that if someone spit on him then he would punch him.
Ted Nugent takes the contestants fishing with Charlie Moore the Mad Fisherman. The men don’t catch a single fish, while the women reel in multiple fish. Mykela catches the highest weight in fish and wins a $1300 reward.
Big Jim challenges the contestants to a belly flop competition. Joey strips before doing his belly flop, and Mykela refuses to participate. Big Jim judges Shannon as the winner and rewards her with a $1,000.
Joey gets upset with continued criticism over his spitting and goes into the woods and beats up on some trees. Mykela claims that she is dehydrated and quits the competition. She is taken away in an ambulance.
For the final challenge, Shannon, Joey, and Carl compete in a multi-stage race to double their money. The first three stages of the race challenge involve drinking a smoothie made out of meat, a pig chase, and finding a bullet shell in a pile of dung. Joey and Carl are the first two to complete the first three stages of the race, and they progress to the shooting range stage.
Joey completes the shooting range stage first and has a lead on Carl in the final stage canoe race. Carl almost passes Joey, but Carl loses control of his canoe. Joey ultimately wins the canoe race and is the first to plant his victory flag. Joey wins the competition and the cash prize of $25,000.
