In a "found footage" style episode, Shawn and Gus join two student filmmakers, Kate and Chavo, in their attempt to make a documentary on the discovery of Bigfoot. They plan on using the finished product to win the Student Academy Award. We learn that Shawn found Kate and Chavo's blog while searching the Internet for "Harry and the Hendersons." Once Shawn discovered Kate and Chavo's plan to find Bigfoot in the woods of Santa Barbara, he asked to be a part of it. But Shawn knew Gus wouldn't join in on the fun unless he was lead into the forest under false pretenses. So he told Gus that he's taking him to a special barbeque joint in the middle of the forest.
