Big Time Rush Wiki

"Bel Air Rush"[1] is the third episode of the third season of Big Time Rush, and the forty-eighth episode of the overall series. It first aired on July 2, 2012.


Since the insane fame rise of Big Time Rush paparazzi and crazy fans like guest star Rachel Crow as Winnie starts driving Big Time Rush insane, so Gustavo is forced to move the boys to a mansion in Bel Air only to find out that it isn't what they expected and they can never move out. Even though he bought their mansion, Gustavo is still not allowed inside. Katie tries to start her own lemonade stand, discovering that the lemon tree is owned by their neighbor Fabio. Gustavo and the boys learn to hate Bel Air because there are no fun things to do and it's nearly impossible to get out. Having had enough of the torture, Gustavo brings their moving truck and picks them up, leaving Bel Air and going back to the Palm Woods.
