Big Time Rush Wiki

"Big Time Tour Bus" is the sixth episode of the third season of Big Time Rush, and the sixty-eighth episode of the overall series. It originally aired on Nickelodeon on June 6, 2013. This episode is the first to be directed by Carlos PenaVega, one of the members of Big Time Rush.


The guys are on a two-week long radio tour to help promote their third album but on the way to their next performance in San Diego they get stuck in a massive traffic jam. Victoria Justice who's also touring with them has to perform extra sets of her music to buy time for them to get there.

Meanwhile Kendall and Carlos discover a website called where an anonymous hater keeps posting bad information about the band especially about Kendall and Jo's relationship.

On the other tour bus James and Logan get into an argument over Logan's well-meaning but rigid and perfectionist tour habits. James ends up hurting Logan's feelings but feels badly later when Logan points out his own habits are aggravating him too. After James finally sees all the hard work Logan puts himself through to make sure things run smoothly for the guys while they're touring he realizes he was wrong but mentions to Logan that he isn't the easiest person to tour with either. Logan agrees to admit to that if James apologizes which he does and they make up.

To make Kendall feel better the guys show him some of the good feedback they have received over time which inspires them to make a music video dedicated to all their fans.
