So... This is the first time I've ever written an AU fic. And it's a piece of crap, but whatevs. I'll keep writing it even if no one likes it.
Kendall Knight observed himself in his mirror. He frowned at his ugly ass school uniform. Stupid black slacks, a white button up shirt, and a black sweater vest with the letters PWA-Palm Woods Academy-over the left breast. The only OK thing with the uniform is that one can wear any type of black shoes they want. Kendall favored Vans. He tried to cheer himself up while he studied the hated uniform. He was a senior now. This was the last year he'd ever have to wear the dreaded thing.
"Kendall! Hurry up!" his mother called from downstairs. "You don't wanna be late for your first day of school!"
Kendall rolled his eyes. "Coming, Mom!" He walked out of his room the same time his sister walked out of hers. She looked miserable in the girl version of the uniform. The same stupid vest and shirt, but with a black skirt and black knee high socks. "You excited to start the eighth grade, Katie?"
She glared at him. "I'm never ready for school."
Kendall slung an arm around her as they made their way downstairs. "It'll get worse once you hit high school, Baby Sister."
"Oh please. Your year is gonna be great."
"What makes you think that?"
"Well, you're Mr. Popular, so it'll be good anyway. And you're a senior. The best time for a high schooler."
"Hey, eighth grade is pretty nice."
"Oh, woot. One more year until I get to the high school building. The moment I've been waiting for my whole life."
They entered their kitchen. "There's no need for sarcasm," Kendall said to her.
"Hurry up and eat your cereal," Mrs. Knight commanded. "Then I'll drop you off. But you have to walk home. And you better wait for your sister after school, Kendall. I don't want you to go off galavanting with your friends."
"OK, Mom." He forgot to wait for Katie one time, and his mom never let him live it down.
Once they finished eating, their mom ushered them out the door and drove them to school.
Logan Mitchell sat in the cafeteria reading while waiting for the bell for homeroom slash first period to ring.
Logan looked up from his book to see his friend sit across from him. "Hey, James."
"You know, I barely saw you this summer."
"Maybe it's because you were too busy spending time with my ex-girlfriend." Who was now James' girlfriend.
"You said you were cool with us dating!"
"Calm down! Jesus. I am."
James let out a sigh of relief. "Right. So. You get any ass over the summer?'
"Oh my God. You totally did. How many chicks, how many dudes?"
Logan rolled his eyes. It was no secret to his friends that he swung both ways, but James prying into his sex life was really annoying. Like that time James wanted to know what sex with another guy was like, and wouldn't stop asking questions about it. "Do you really want to know?"
Logan sighed. "One of each."
"Anyone I know?"
"Not the guy. I met him when I went to Florida with my cousins."
"Well. Carlos forced me to go to a party at Mercedes Griffin's house..."
"Shut up! We were drunk."
James shook his head. "How have I not heard rumors about this?"
"Because I'm a beast at staying under the radar. Which is how I like it."
The bell rang. "Where the hell is Carlos?" James asked.
"You know he's always late."
They gathered their things and went off to homeroom.
Kendall walked into homeroom. He took a seat next to Jo Taylor. His friend and ex-girlfriend.
"Please tell me you're not with that ass Jett," he said to her.
Jo made a disgusted face. "Ew. No. Why'd you think I am?"
"He was flirting it up with you at my end of summer party."
"I know. He couldn't take a hint and leave. Thankfully, Camille's boyfriend got rid of him."
Kendall nodded. He knew that James was one of the drama nerds along with Jo, her best friend Camille, and other kids in their little group of friends. He seemed like a cool guy.
"OK, kids!" their teacher called. "Time to take attendance."
By third period, Kendall was already tired of school. He had just gotten out of his math class. Math was his worst subject, and even though he was in the lower level stat class, he knew he would have trouble.
"No one sit down," their teacher, Ms. Commings, said.
"You're giving us assigned seats?" Kendall whined.
She smiled at him. "Yes, Mr. Knight. I know there are certain people you like to chit chat with."
"The only person I'd talk to is Curly Jennifer."
"I hate it when you call me that," one of the Jennifers-a trio of best friends sharing the same name-said.
Kendall grinned at her. "Which is why I call you that." She did have curly hair too, though.
"Quiet now," Ms. Commings commanded. She read off people's names and told them where to sit. "Kendall Knight." She pointed to a seat in the back of the third row. He was surprised she didn't put him in the front.
He walked to his seat. Before he sat down, he looked at the guy to his left. He had to stop his jaw from falling to the floor. This kid was probably the most gorgeous person he had ever seen. He couldn't believe he'd never noticed this guy before. He thought he knew everyone in their grade.
The beautiful brunette must've felt his gaze, because he looked at Kendall and raised his eyebrows. Kendall quickly looked away. That was something new. Usually if he made eye contact with someone he found attractive, he would flash a smile. How could this guy he had yet to speak to intimidate him?
As Ms. Commings lectured and Logan took notes, a piece of paper was placed on his desk. He looked to his right. Kendall was staring straight ahead, biting his lip and a blush on his cheeks. Logan found that weird. He opened the piece of paper.
Hi. I'm Kendall Knight.
Logan had to stop himself from laughing at the strangeness of this. He wrote back, I know who you are. He put the note on Kendall's desk.
The note returned. You know who I am?
Oh. Well, I don't know you.
Logan wondered why Kendall cared. I'm Logan Mitchell.
Why haven't I noticed you before?
I like to keep a low profile.
That's cool. You should tell me about yourself.
I would. But I think Ms. Commings is onto us.
He saw Kendall frown when he read the note. He nodded, though, showing Logan he understood.
Logan spent the rest of the class thinking of reasons why Kendall would show a sudden interest in him.
"Camille," Kendall said when he entered his biology class. He took a seat next to her. "Do you know Logan Mitchell?"
"Uh. Duh. I dated him most of last year."
"Was he ever around when I hung out with you and everyone else?"
"He sits at the same lunch table as us. He's been to several of your parties."
"Who does he hang out with?"
"Carlos Garcia and James are his best friends."
Kendall knew Carlos from the hockey team. "Why haven't I noticed Logan before?"
Camille shrugged. "Logan's good at that. He rarely approaches people. He lets them come to him. Why the sudden interest in Logan?"
"He sits next to me in English." He sighed. "I don't think I've ever seen someone so beautiful."
Camille laughed. "He is easy on the eyes. And you're lucky."
"Logan likes guys too. Apparently he hooked up with some guy over the summer. Oh! And Mercedes too."
"Mercedes? You've gotta be shitting me."
"How'd I not hear of this?"
"Logan's magical like that. I only know because he told James and James told me."
Kendall couldn't believe Logan had escaped his attention for so long. "Camille?"
"Please don't tell Logan I was asking about him."
"Sure." She was going to tell James and Carlos though.
"CARLOS!" James and Logan screamed when they saw their friend at lunch.
"Hey!" Carlos was already sitting at their usual lunch table with Camille.
"Where the hell have you been?" James asked as he and Logan sat down.
"I overslept. This is actually the first period I've been to."
Logan rolled his eyes. Only Carlos would sleep in that late. "You get detention?"
Logan laughed. "I'm gonna go get in line for food."
When Logan was gone, Camille announced, "Kendall Knight was asking about Logan."
James tilted his head. "Really? Why?"
"He thinks Logan is the most beautiful person ever or something." She saw Kendall approaching with his friend Dak Zevon. "Shh. Don't talk about it while Kendall's around."
By the time Logan got back, the lunch table was filled with its regulars. Kendall, Dak, Jo, all three Jennifers, Mercedes, Stephanie King, and Guitar Dude.
Kendall's eyes immediately found Logan. He told himself he never noticed Logan at lunch before because they sat at opposite ends of the table. Then he cursed himself for coming up with such an idiotic excuse.
He watched Logan laugh and talk with James, Carlos, and Camille. He quickly realized that he had yet to hear Logan's voice.
Kendall stood up and walked to Logan's end of the table. He took a seat next to Logan. "Hey, guys."
"Hi," Camille, Carlos, and James said. They were all smiles and Logan had a confused look on his face.
"So... Logan," Kendall said.
Kendall loved the sound of his name coming out of Logan's mouth. "I just wanted to apologize."
Logan just looked more confused. "For what?"
"Not knowing you existed until English today."
Logan laughed. It was like music to Kendall's ears. "It's no big deal, man. I mean, it's not like we've had any classes together before."
"But you sit at the same lunch table as me. And you're friends with people I know."
"And he's been to your house for parties," James added. Camille elbowed him in the side.
"He was actually at your end of summer party," Carlos said. "Which was awesome, by the way."
Logan sighed. "Shut up, you two. You're just making Kendall feel worse." He turned to Kendall. "Just ignore them. I do," he said with a smile.
Kendall returned the smile. "I'll try. So you're not mad?"
Logan laughed. "No. I don't stand out much here at school anyway."
"Nah. I like it that way. Keeps me out of unnecessary drama."
"Well, now that you screwed Mercedes that'll probably change," Carlos said.
"I told you to never speak of that," Logan hissed. "Pretend you didn't hear that, Kendall."
Kendall chuckled. "No problem. So-"
"Kendall, man!" Guitar Dude called. "You gotta hear the song me and the Dak-Man just wrote!"
Dak punched his arm. "Don't call me that."
"Be right there," Kendall said. "I'll see you guys later." He looked at Logan. "Bye, Logan."
Logan waved to him, and he left.
"Well, that was odd," Logan said. He looked at his friends. "Why do you all have stupid grins on your faces?"
"No reason," they all told him.
After school, Kendall waited outside the middle school building for Katie. His mind drifted to Logan. Kendall had been hoping luck would give him another class with Logan, but that didn't happen. He settled for just looking for Logan in the halls between classes. Every time he did see Logan and made eye contact with him, Logan would study him with curiosity. That would cause Kendall to look away with embarrassment.
Kendall ran a hand through his hair. He couldn't understand it. He had never become so ridiculously infatuated with a person so quickly before.
He snapped out of his thoughts when he felt a pain in his shin. "Jesus! Why'd you kick me, Katie?"
"I called you name, like, five times and you didn't respond."
The sibling began their walk home. "I was just thinking," Kendall told her.
"Just, you know, the first day of school and all."
"I take it something special happened." She recognized the look in Kendall's eyes. It was the look he got whenever he found a new crush.
"There's this guy..."
He didn't say anything for a minute. "Continue," Katie urged.
"I sit next to him in one of my classes. He knows people I know, sits at my lunch table, has been to my parties, and I never noticed him before."
"That's not really surprising."
"You tend to not notice people who don't practically worship you, Big Brother." Before he could respond, she asked, "So what's this guy's name?"
"Logan Mitchell," Kendall told her dreamily. "And he's fucking gorgeous."
"Huh." He never called any of his exes gorgeous.
"I think I'll go add him on Facebook when we get home."
"Wait. You just became aware of him today, and you're already gonna cyber-stalk him?"
Kendall nodded. "Yes. Yes, I am."
"Did you even speak to him today?"
"We had a short conversation at lunch. He has a lovely voice. Hmm. I wonder if he can sing."
"Oh my god. Is this that love at first sight shit I've read in novels and seen in movies?"
"First, don't swear. Second, I wouldn't say love. Just intense, crazy crush at first sight."
They reached their house. As Kendall unlocked the front door, Katie worried about him a little. He had never sounded like that when talking about someone he was interested in. She really hoped he wouldn't end up hurt.
It was about two weeks into the semester. Kendall was in his Stat class. He just got his graded quiz handed back to him. A big, fat F. This was not good. He couldn't fail this class. If he did, he would not only have to go to summer school, but he wouldn't get his diploma at the graduation ceremony. That would be a huge disappointed for his mom.
The bell rang and his teacher asked to speak with him. "Yes, Mrs. Jones?"
"You failed your quiz," she said.
"No need for an attitude. Listen. I know you hate math."
"Is it that obvious?"
She smiled at him. "I also know you try very hard."
He geld up his quiz. "And look at where that gets me."
"One of my AP Calc students has tutored several people before with good results. Come here at the end of the day so you can meet him."
"It'll have to be quick since I have to walk my sister home."
"No problem. You need a late slip." She scribbled something down and handed the little piece of paper to him. "Have a nice day."
Logan looked up when he heard the door open. He had gotten used to Kendall occasionally staring at him, and sometimes passing him notes in English. He had been a little disappointed when Kendall hadn't arrived after the bell rang. Now that he was in the room, Logan felt a bit relieved. All was right again.
He smiled at Kendall as he walked to his desk. Kendall responded with a blush and looked away. As usual.
As the class period went on, Logan heard Kendall sigh several times. He ripped out a piece of paper from his notebook, wrote What's wrong? and put it on Kendall's desk.
What makes you think something's wrong? was Kendall's reply.
You've sighed sadly about a million times.
He heard Kendall sigh again after reading the note.
I'm just failing a class is all.
It's only the beginning of the semester. You'll be fine.
I'm glad you have faith in me.
The bell rang. Kendall put the note in a folder with the rest of them. A creepy habit he picked up after the first day of classes. He had also memorized every detail of the info section of Logan's Facebook profile. He checked Logan's activities on Facebook everyday as well. And thanks to the "see friendship" feature, he could see everything Logan and someone else had said to each other and whatnot. He even had a folder on his computer filled with pictures of Logan he found on Facebook. He felt like a twelve year old fangirl of some celebrity. He hated it. And was slightly disturbed. He feared that he may need some serious therapy.
The bell rang, signaling the end of the day.
"Logan," Mrs. Jones said. "Could you please stay here for a bit?"
"Um. Sure." He walked up to her desk. "What is it?"
"I have a student in one of my Stat classes that really needs some help. He's barely passed every math class he's had since freshman year."
"Ah. You want me to tutor him."
"Exactly. You'll get the usual extra credit for every test and quiz over a C." The door opened. "Hello, Mr. Knight. Meet your tutor."
Kendall knew it was Logan before he turned around. He had memorized the way the boy stood.
"We already know each other," Kendall said once Logan faced him.
"Well, all you two have to do is come up with a schedule," Mrs. Jones said.
"Um. Can we do that later, Logan? I have to walk my sister home. Then get ready for work."
"Oh. I can drive you guys home if you want, and we can discuss it on the way."
"It's a pretty short drive."
"So? It's on the way to my house."
They went to their lockers, gathered their things, and exited the building together.
"Oh shit," Kendall mumbled. Katie was standing there with crossed arms and a scowl.
"Where have you been?" she asked.
"I had to meet with my math tutor." Kendall pointed to the boy he was currently obsessed with. "Logan Mitchell."
Katie smiled widely. "Oh. Hi, Logan."
He waved at her.
Kendall said, "He's been kind enough to offer to drive us home so I can discuss out tutoring schedule with him."
"Sweet. I'm tired of walking."
They headed to Logan's car.
"So," Logan said, "I'm usually free whenever. You?"
Kendall let out a breath as he got in the car. "I work at the grocery store Monday through Thursday from five to eight. On Fridays I give the kid down the street guitar lessons from six to seven. And I got nothing Saturday and Sunday at all."
Logan nodded. "OK. You wanna just meet on Saturday afternoons and Sundays on test and quiz weeks?"
"Sounds like a plan."
Logan stopped in front of the Knight residence. "Here we are. We can talk about times at school tomorrow."
Kendall and Katie watched him drive away.
"He's pretty hot," Katie commented.
It was Saturday. Kendall was waiting in his room for Logan to arrive for their first tutoring session. He was extremely nervous. The only contact he had had with Logan was in English and short conversations at lunch.
He opened his phone and made a call.
"Camille, I'm freaking out."
"Logan's tutoring me today."
"Ooh." Camille was suddenly interested. "So you guys will be all alone?"
"Hence the freaking out."
"Wait. Where is this going down?"
"My room. By the time Katie and my mom get home, they'll be all annoying."
"Won't your mom make you keep the door open?"
"Only with girls."
"She doesn't know that you like guys as well?"
"So your little sister knows, but not the woman who gave birth to you?"
Kendall sighed. "That's not the issue here. What do I do?"
"Camille. Be serious."
"Since when is Kendall Knight nervous about being being around a person he's into?"
"You didn't even know he existed until a few weeks ago!"
"I know, I know."
"OK. First, you need to calm yourself. Second, just act how you normally do around him. Except be a little more touchy. That way he might know you're interested. That's what I did."
"And it worked?"
"Have you forgotten that I dated him?"
"Listen. If Logan likes someone, he doesn't do anything about it."
"He always assumes said person isn't into him too. That person has to make it painfully obvious for him to make a move. Or the person should just make a move themselves."
Kendall heard the doorbell ring. "Shit! He's here! Here's here!" Kendall yelled with panic.
"Calm yourself! Go answer the door. I'm hanging up now."
"But-" The line went dead. The doorbell rang again. Kendall took a deep breath then ran downstairs.
Kendall opened the door, and his first thought was: Holy shit. Kendall had never seen any of his peers rock a sweater vest outside of school. But Logan did. Suddenly, Kendall found sweater vests sexy.
"Am I allowed in?" Logan asked with an amused grin.
Kendall laughed at himself. "Sure." Logan stepped in and Kendall shut the door. "Follow me."
"We going to your room?"
"Um. Yeah. My mom and sister are out shopping. If we were downstairs, they'd just be huge pains in the ass when they get back."
Logan chuckled. When they reached Kendall's room, he took in his surroundings. His eyes went to Kendall's bed first. It was a full size bed with a dark blue comforter. And Kendall seemed to be a fan of pillows since he had six on the bed. Kendall's wall were covered with band and movie posters. He had a few guitars resting against one wall. There were two beanbag chairs. His desk held a TV and stereo. Kendall's laptop was just chilling on the floor, and his dresser had various toys and action figures on top.
Logan shook his head. "Sorry. I was just observing your room."
Kendall shrugged. "It's nothing special. You mind if I turn on the TV? I like background noise."
Logan smiled. "I do too."
Logan laughed. "Yes." He sat on a beanbag chair and watched Kendall. The boy seemed really nervous for some reason. It was kind of cute.
Kendall flopped onto the beanbag chair across from him. "So where do we begin?"
"Let me see what your homework is."
"Right." Kendall's bag was already next to him, so he didn't have to move to get his things. He handed his assignment to Logan.
"OK. You have your textbook and notebook?"
"Yeah." Kendall got them out.
"You should probably move next to me. That'll make things easier."
"OK." Kendall's heart sped up a bit as he did. Which was completely stupid. All he was doing was sitting next to the dude.
They worked for about fifteen minutes when Kendall's mind started to drift. His attention was brought back when he was hit on the nose with a pencil. "Ow."
"You need to focus," Logan said with a grin.
"Sorry. Math is just so boring."
"Not for me."
"Well, you're a freak of nature then."
Logan laughed. "I guess I am." He laughed again when Kendall blushed.
"What?" Kendall asked.
"Nothing, Let's continue."
Throughout the session, Kendall slowly inched closer to Logan. Eventually their legs touched and neither boy moved away from the other at all. Kendall had to keep himself from having a spazz attack.
When they were done, Kendall said, "I'll walk you to the door."
"So, you understand everything a little better?" Logan wanted to know.
"Not really." They both laughed.
"You must be Logan."
Katie and Mrs. Knight were waiting at the bottom of the stairs.
"Logan," Kendall said, "this is my mom."
"It's nice to meet you," Mrs. Knight said. "I've heard a lot about you."
Logan tilted his head. "You have?"
"Oh yeah. Kendall mentioned that you were coming over several times."
"A day," Katie added.
"Really?" Logan turned to Kendall, who was extremely red.
"They're exaggerating," Kendall told him.
Katie shook her head. "Nope. When Mom asked about you, Kendall rattled off every fact about you that he knows."
"OK! Time for Logan to leave!" Kendall said. He put a hand on Logan's back and guided him to the door.
Logan found this all very entertaining. "Bye, Kendall. Bye, Katie. Bye, Mrs. Knight."
"Bye," Katie and Mrs. Knight said.
Kendall said, "See you at school, Logan."
When the door shut, Kendall "casually" made his way to the window to watch Logan drive away.
"I'm gonna... make dinner," Mrs. Knight announced then walked away.
Kendall turned around once Logan's car was out of sight to find Katie smirking at him. "What?"
"You just made your crush on Logan so painfully obvious."
So yeah. Not so good. But I don't care. :D
This a list of fictional characters in the television series, Big Time Rush. The article deals with main, recurring, minor character and notable guest stars.
Kendall Knight (Kendall Schmidt) is the leader and founder of Big Time Rush (despite being the youngest) when he accepts to move to Los Angeles and record demos only if Gustavo brings James, Carlos, and Logan along to make them all a band. He is portrayed as the glue that keeps the band together. He manages to stay cool under pressure (described as "Cool Rush") and figure out solutions to problems, thus often resulting in the other guys running to Kendall when they have a problem, being the most mature and responsible member of Big Time Rush. Kendall keeps a great relationship with his mother and his younger sister, Katie, who helps him and his friends whenever they get into trouble. He is quite affectionate towards Katie, as she is always there to help him and vice versa. Kendall's mother is the only parent shown on a regular basis while his father is not mentioned.
Kendall has a crush on Jo from the very beginning she came to L.A. and by insisting on Jo to give him a chance they soon after become a couple. They keep the longest relationship on the series until Jo accepts a three-year movie deal to New Zealand and moves there (thus breaking up with Kendall). Kendall goes into heartbreak after Jo leaves. However, with his friends' help, he is able to get back on his feet. Kendall is the only one who never caught "Hollywood Fever", which turned out to be a subconscious manifestation of homesickness, because he never lost touch with the life and hobbies he had in Minnesota. Although he takes his work seriously, Kendall loves to joke around and is usually hyper. He tends to stand up for himself and likes to talk back and be sarcastic. He is kind, helpful and always there for his friends and also he is shown to be good at maintaining relationships, as he shares great friendships with the boys, his sister and his mother. In the season 2 finale "Big Time Move" while he was singing Lucy winked at him and he seemed to be slightly shocked. In season 3 "Big Time Returns", Kendall had to run around the Palm Woods in his underwear because he talked to Lucy when James called dibs on her. In "Bel Air Rush", Kendall and all the guys move to Bel Air but want to escape. So Kendall and Logan find a way to escape back to L.A. In Big Time Double Date Kendall helps Lucy lie to her parents about Lucy being on a violin scholarship. But in the end Lucy's mom and dad find out the truth so Kendall decides that he, James, Carlos, Logan and Lucy should play the song Cover Girl. While dining with all the guys Lucy holds Kendall's hand which Kendall doesn't mind. It seems Kendall might have feelings for Lucy. In Big Time Merchandise Kendall, and the others, wanted to sell their own better merchandise for Selmart. In Big Time Surprise he and Lucy share their first kiss but are interrupted by Jo who has come back to the Palmwoods, forcing him to decide between the two. He chose Jo. Things onward are very awkward. So Kendall asks Babylace, a made-up mentally impaired fifty-year-old. After countless failed attempts to impress Jo, the two decide to start anew. When Kendall asks Jo, 'I noticed that you just moved into the palmwoods, and I'd love to take you out some time, like, tonight?'
James Diamond (James Maslow) is the pretty boy of Big Time Rush. He is the one who originally wanted to be a star when the boys were just four hockey players in Minnesota. James is shallow, driven, sometimes an airhead, and, like Logan, sometimes panics under pressure, but is a good friend and looks out for his bandmates. He is the second-to-youngest member of the group before Kendall. James loves wearing bandanas and has an alter-ego known as Bandana-Man, which is just him wrapped in purple bandanas. James always has personal head shots of himself which he carries along, wherever he goes. Of his bandmates, he is closest to Carlos, whom he loves to play video games and goof around with. He is described as solid-voiced and driven beyond belief. Though he is conceited, James can also be caring and think of others. He is shown as a ladies' man, usually dating one girl or the other. He is very muscular. According to Carlos, he always gets the girls and declares himself the "pretty one". He accidentally shared a kiss with Camille while practicing a romantic play, but still remained good friends. He supports the band as best as he can and loves having fun. He is also shown to be overprotective of Katie, revealing that he sees her as a little sister. His mother, Brooke (played by soap opera veteran Lisa Rinna), is considered the "Estee Lauder of the Midwest" for her successful cosmetics line. She wanted to take James to be the CEO of her cosmetic line but the boys and their moms found a way for James to be kept in L.A. It is revealed though that he has trouble saying no to her and is a Mama's boy. His parents are divorced and apparently his dad is remarried to some woman that is fifteen years younger than he is, so his parents don't talk. However, James' dad was revealed in Big Time Concert, and had a small speaking role. Though his name wasn't revealed, one could tell it was James' dad by the way he dressed and acted. In "Big Time Interview", it is revealed that James started singing and dancing at age two and starting using hair care products at age three. It is also revealed in Big Time Movie that James is afraid of heights. In season 3 Big Time Returns James called dibs on Lucy Stone and kept pestering her. When he asked her out Lucy said she just wanted to be friends which meant no. In Bel Air Rush James wanted to escape from Bel Air back to L.A. like everyone else. In Big Time Double Date James wanted Carlos' date with a Jennifer to go perfect so he dressed as a waiter at the fancy restaurant Carlos and Jennifer were dining in. In Big Time Merchandise James and Logan made Big Time Rush perfume for Sam Selmart. He went from having long hair (Season 1) to having medium-length hair (Season 2), short hair (Season 3) and really short hair without a fringe (Season 4). In Big Time Dreams he finally gets to kiss Lucy, which leads them to start dating at the end.
Carlos Garcia (Carlos Pena Jr.) is the joker of the band who likes to wear his hockey helmet for no apparent reason. According to Kendall, he isn't very tough without it. Carlos is the oldest member of the band. He is also the shortest and most immature of the group. He is shown to be friendly, optimistic, childish, energetic, impulsive, unpredictable and reckless. Because of his childish nature, he almost always tends to rebound quickly from setbacks, with his sudden break up in Big Time Single being a rare exception. He is also very superstitious, believing in ghosts and the paranormal, as well as being cautious of bringers of bad luck like black cats and broken mirrors. He is easygoing and very persuadable, which often gets him into trouble. He can get really sensitive, he is extremely prone to accidents (possible reason for the helmet), he acts impulsively and therefore casually says whatever he has on mind no matter what. However, it should be noted that Carlos never intends to be insensitive or hurtful when he does this. Moreover, he is always the last to figure out what is going on or what the guys plan. Carlos usually suggests thinking "happy thoughts about kittens" when his bandmates get into arguments. He sometimes has little disputes with Logan, but it's clear they're very close as they get paired up together often. He also constantly get in fights with James, but they usually blow over pretty fast. In Big Time Audition, it was said that Carlos lost his pet, Sparky, when he was little. A running gag is that Carlos usually almost gets the guys caught or in trouble and he says the wrong things at the wrong time and is the least sophisticated non down to earth guy in BTR. However, he's also the nicest, as mentioned by Katie, Camille and Mrs. Knight. In "Big Time Interview", it is shown that Carlos' dad is from Minneapolis. It also says that he is nicknamed "The Wild Rush" and he was voted "most likely to marry a corndog" by his sophomore class due to his strong liking to corn dogs. According to Kendall, Carlos once beat up the entire eighth grade in middle school.
Carlos likes most girls he sees, because he never had a "real" girlfriend and has been shown to be very awkward and silly in front of girls he finds attractive. He has though a big special crush on Jennifers throughout the series, even though they keep rejecting him and did, however, have a date with Jennifer 1 for the prom Big Time Prom Kings whereas Jennifer 3 gave him a flirty wave while he was singing in season two finale Big Time Move probably hinting that she likes him. He also has dated Jennifer 2 in Big Time Rescue after saving her from the studio's guard. He also had a short relationship with Sasha, a girl Gustavo hired to date him and a visit from his long ago big time crush, Heather Fox who once seemed to like him, but fails to win her back. The closest thing he's had to a real potential girlfriend is filmmaker, Stephanie King, who appeared in two episodes of Season 1 (Big Time Terror and Big Time Dance). Eventually though Carlos finally got a girlfriend in the series finale where he started dating Alex Vega. In Big Time Break-Up, Carlos reveals that he has a metal plate in his head that acts as a counter-vailents against electrical currents.
Logan Mitchell (Logan Henderson) is the genius of the group. He is genuine and sweet, and the next most down-to-earth guy in the band after Kendall. He is also the serious one but usually follows along in his friend's schemes, sometimes making schemes of his own when needed, like his most famous scheme, 'Love Science'. He is the second oldest of the group after Carlos. Logan is extremely smart and the other guys usually rely on him to solve certain problems, like school work and such. However, he panics under pressure usually leaving it to Kendall to come up with answer. Logan is introduced in Big Time Audition as the brain of the group. He has his learners' permit and drives the others to the audition, and later, to places around the Palm Woods. Logan can be shy but when he lets loose, he can be just as goofy as his friends. Logan states that if he wasn't in a band, he'd be studying to be a doctor. He is stubborn but also sensitive, described as the weakest in the band and a really good friend. He is very hard-working and as Kelly says he has an adorable smile. Logan's favorite mathematician is Phoebe Nachee, a woman, who as he later realizes much to his shock, hates boys. Logan is also skeptical of ghosts and the paranormal, relying on science for logical explanations of unnatural things. He has a grandma who is sometimes mentioned. It is revealed later in the series that he is indecisive and has a weak bladder. It's also revealed that his given name is Hortense, but James's mother hated the name and told the boys to call him Logan, and since no one ever says no to James' mom the name stuck, much to his liking. It is implied that he is a bit self-conscious about hugging and kissing his mother in front of his friends. However, he cares about her. In Big Time Interview it is revealed that Logan moved to Minnesota in third grade and immediately became friends with the other boys because he did their homework for them. It is unknown where he came from, though.
Logan is shown to have feelings for Camille right from the beginning and later on they become a couple until "Big Time Girlfriends" where James being his best friend and Camille being his girlfriend kiss. The two decide to remain friends. However, they still keep an unresolved on again off again relationship. It is stated that he has never asked anyone out before Camille, though having some dates in the past. Despite their "break-up" Logan and Camille still remained friends and also seem to have feelings for each other, as proven in Big Time Secret where he gets extremely jealous when she starts spending time with Kendall secretly. Later, in Big Time Move they are seen in flirty interaction during a performance, in Big Time Returns get together again and decides to have a real relationship. Camille is the only girl that Logan has kissed in the show similar to Kendall and Jo.
Gustavo Kramer Rocque (Stephen Kramer Glickman) is a world-renowned very hot-tempered record producer who auditions the boys in Minnesota and brings them to L.A. to make them stars. Before Big Time Rush, he had twenty-nine platinum albums, including ones he made with a previous boy band, "Boy Quake". He's cliche and always has a frown on his face while the boys are performing, even when he likes the song. He has also been the butt of several fat jokes. At first he couldn't stand James, stating that he reminds him of Matthew McConaughey, whom he hates. However, this changed as the series went on. He admits to liking the boys after dealing with an absolutely perfect boy band that he hated because they were so perfect. He affectionately refers to the boys as his "dogs" because of an encounter in "big time audition". His mansion has a fridge filled with pudding. He has little patience for things. He does not eat pulled pork. So far Gustavo has landed a record deal, produced an album, recorded with Jordin Sparks and beat his all-time nemesis Hawk, finally forcing him to admit to Kelly that the boys are his good luck charms. Gustavo is an excellent piano player. Kelly reveals to the guys that Gustavo didn't have a normal childhood, having been forced by his mother to spend all of his time playing piano and never being allowed to play like normal kids. Gustavo reveals that he has been banned from all hotels in Los Angeles, along with Russell Crowe, Aerosmith, and the "original host of Blue's Clues" (Steven Burns). He often acts annoyed by the boys, however, it is implied that he considers them part of his family. In Big Time Camping the boys want to camp out but Gustavo gets worried about their safety.
Katie Knight (Ciara Bravo) is Kendall's little sister who is shown to be a lot smarter and quick-witted than her mother. She enjoys blackmailing and likes to gamble. She goes to the Palm Woods School with the boys, after starring in a commercial where all she had to do was beat up a boy. She is originally nine years old in the pilot, later turns 10 in early Season 1 in the series, and later turns 11 in early-Season 2 in the series. She is very clever and has excellent business senses, which is why the boys often need her for their plans. She is a good sister to Kendall and the boys, helping them out whenever needed. It is shown that the other boys in the band look at Katie as their own little sister too. And the other boys are also shown to be protective of her. Kendall frequently calls her "baby sister" and she calls him "big brother" especially when they are plotting something. Though it is stated in various episodes that she lacks friends, she seems to be friends with Tyler. She is wise and has great ideas. She can often be manipulative but has a good heart. It is also suspected that Katie has a minor crush on James, but does her best to deny it. Katie has a "frenemies" relationship with Mr. Bitters. Kendall said that he convinced their mother not to name Katie "Apple". She helps Kendall through his heartbreak and comforts him.
Such as seen in Big Time Break-Up when Jo leaves for three years she tries to cheer him up. Throughout the series it is shown that she can be quite devious and often does things for money. She loves her brother and he is very protective of her. She has helped out Kendall multiple times as well as James, Carlos, and Logan. She is also shown to have a friendship with Gustavo and Kelly helping them out numerous times. EX: Helping Gustavo figure out what a song means, helping him with his writer's block, and helping him find out her mom's secret family Snickerdoodle recipe (because it helped him write a better song and he could not stop thinking about them, but mainly because Kelly promised to give her a hundred dollars).
Kelly Wainwright (Tanya Chisholm) is a talent scout and Gustavo's assistant. Her personality is a lot mellower than her boss's. She is honest, polite, and very efficient. She is also very helpful and supportive. She serves mainly as moderator/mediator between Gustavo and Big Time Rush, keeping Gustavo's rage in check and simultaneously getting the boys to do what they have to do, avoiding the clashes that would otherwise ensue. She is very organized. As stated by Gustavo and everyone else, she is a horrible "faker-liar-actress". She is usually always with Gustavo and seems to know him better than anyone else. After six months of working with the boys, she got him to admit that he does like them, even considering them his good luck charms. She is a main character in season 2. Although she was not a main character in the first season, she appeared in all the episodes for season one, except Big Time Break. In Big Time Girlfriends, Kelly was angry at Gustavo when she found out he hired an actress to break Carlos' heart to get him to sing about breakups, so she threatened to break Gustavo's music awards if Carlos ended up hurt. It is revealed that she has a black belt. Although she is often annoyed and disgusted by Gustavo, it is implied that she likes working for him and also favors the boys.
Jo Taylor (Katelyn Tarver) is the first and original new girl at the Palm Woods. Jo is from North Carolina and lives in L.A. with her strict former marine, CIA dad. She is an aspiring singer and actress although she has only sung along with the group and their friends in the episode Welcome Big Time and plays Rachel in the show "New Town High". In the episode Big Time Sneakers it is revealed that "Rachel" is a cheerleader. Jo is best friends with Camille and gets along well with every other character. She first appeared in Big Time Love Song where the guys were battling it out to see who would get to date her but none of them got to after she lied she had a boyfriend. Following these events, the other guys moved on and it was only Kendall who insisted on Jo to give him a chance. Though she constantly turned him down, Kendall finally figured out her lie and she started to develop feelings for him. This eventually leads to them soon becoming a couple at the Palm Woods end-of-year school dance (Big Time Dance).
In Season Two, Jo and Kendall's relationship face major difficulties. In the first episode of Season Two, Welcome Back, Big Time, Kendall becomes overly jealous when he sees Jo with a good-looking guy (unaware that he is Jo's new co-star in the show "New Town High", Jett Stetson, who keeps on flirting with her on and off-screen) that leads Jo to end their relationship, though she changed her mind hours later and appeared in a Big Time Rush concert holding an "I <3 Kendall" sign. In the episode Big Time Girlfriends Kendall and Jo spend so little time together due to their career demands that Kendall considers breaking up but accepts that seeing her for a minute is better than never. Later, in Big Time Sneakers, Jo's publicist tries to create a rumor that Jo and her co-star Jett are a real life couple, in order to promote the series, thus causing trouble in Kendall and Jo's relationship. But Kendall finds a way to solve their problem. Moreover, in Big Time Prom Kings their night and the chances of winning "prom king and queen" are ruined by Jo's overprotective dad. Nevertheless, Jo and Kendall are the longest actual dating couple at the Palm Woods and no matter their fights they always get back together.
In the episode Big Time Break-Up, Jo gets offered a part in a three-movie deal and has to leave to New Zealand for three years. She firstly decides to reject the chance, not wanting to lose Kendall, but he unwillingly urges her to take the once in a lifetime opportunity for her best interests, and so she leaves. In the episode, it is claimed that they are both in love and care deeply the one for another. After her departure Kendall falls into heartbreak depression, which he manages to get over with his friends and family's help. She returns in Season 3 Big Time Surprise right after Kendall and Lucy kiss. At the end of Big Time Decision, Kendall walks through LA, and sees several things that remind him of Lucy. He goes back to the Palm Woods and chooses Jo as his girlfriend, which causes Lucy to leave the Palm Woods. In Big Time Babysitting, Kendall tries to rebuild his relationship with Jo but has to babysit Babylace, who is a rock legend, with Logan. On Babylace's advice, Kendall sets up a picnic for him and Jo but Babylace suffers one of his frequent heart attacks and faints on the picnic table. When Kendall cancels his picnic date Jo thinks he doesn't want to have a date with her and accidentally calls Jo Lucy. Jo gets upset and walks away. Later Kendall tries to sing Jo a love song that Babylace helped him write for her, but he has another heart attack and has to be revived by Logan, so Kendall doesn't get to sing to Jo. Instead Kendall asks Jo for another chance for them to start a new relationship again. Kendall and Jo go together as a couple to the Hall Of Rock Awards. As in Big Time Rescue, It is revealed, if they teach each other or doing something together, they argue. But even though this happens, they seem to get along.
Jennifer Knight (Challen Cates) is the loving, kind, caring mother of Kendall and Katie. Usually she is mentioned as Mrs. Knight or Mama Knight and her name, Jennifer (Jen) is revealed in season two episode Big Time Moms and Big Time Movie. She is the adult responsible of Big Time Rush and the only parent to move to live with them. It is seen she gets along very well with Katie and the guys, who respect her and can count on her, as she is proven helpful and both lenient and strict when needed. Despite her gentle personality Mrs. Knight can get really stubborn at times, becoming aggressive and competitive while she can go to the extremes for something she is determined to do and as claimed she likes to win. It is also mentioned that when back to Minnesota she used to be a waitress. Overall, aside from Kendall, she is mostly seen helping and advising Logan who seeks for and respects her opinions.
Mrs. Knight befriends Mrs. Duncan in Big Time Girl Group while she marries Buddha Bob in Big Time Wedding, so as him won't have to leave the country and though their marriage is invalid, she finds out he could be a good husband. In Big Time Strike, she goes on strike from her daily duties in order Katie to appreciate her hard work and since that episode she is proven to be a really good negotiator. In Big Time Secret, she got revealed that her hair color isn't natural and that her homemade cookies are not at all homemade. Mrs. Knight was stated to be the band's "momager" during Big Time Interview.
Mrs. Knight is the only mother to appear in more than one episode (all the other boys' mothers only appeared in Big Time Moms) and is in fact the most viewed recurring character since Kelly Wainwright became a series regular. In season 3, Challen Cates gets credited for every episode even if she doesn't appear in it.
Reginald Bitters (Mr. Bitters)
Reginald Bitters (Mr. Bitters) (David Anthony Higgins) is the strict, money-loving, and downright mean manager of the Palm Woods. He doesn't really like Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan or generally anything that disturbs the hotel's peace. He is also a frenemy with Katie Knight and though they constantly get on each other nerves they seem to care the one for another and occasionally they get along well. He is never helpful at his work and can get lazy as well as arrogant and tries to impose his own rules to others no matter how unfair they may be, though he gets usually outsmarted by either Katie or the guys. He doesn't really care about other people's feelings but he is always in for a challenge as he likes to win. He is sarcastic enough giving comments throughout the series. Also it seems he set eyes for Big Time Rush's apartment (2J) after it got fixed and has already given them two of the three strikes (of false behavior) needed to evict them.
During "Big Time Moms", it was revealed that in the past, Bitters quit veterinarian school to follow his girlfriend, an aspiring actress, at the Palm Woods and after he spent his entire money supporting her acting career, she dumped him and he landed a job there. His mother arrived at the Palm Woods not knowing all that and still believing her son was a vet who was married and had a son, so Katie and Buddha Bob helped him pull all this off. At the end, Bitters's mom got convinced that her son was secret spy. In "Big Time Rocker", we learn that Bitters keeps his savings in a house safe which Camille, as Mila Stark, robbed. Also, in "Big Time Christmas", Mr. Bitters had been lonely and sad on Christmas claiming that he hates holidays, but Katie got him to spend the Christmas with them and showed him what Christmas is like with family and friends. In that episode it is seen that Mr. Bitters doesn't like that nobody likes him and the good side of him hiding inside got finally revealed.
Arthur Griffin (Matt Riedy) is Gustavo's annoying, selfish and snobbish boss at Rocque Records. He is the CEO of RCMCBT Global Net Sanyoid Corporation and the 4th most powerful CEO in America as claimed in Big Time Photo Shoot. He tends to have irrational demands from Gustavo and Big Time Rush to be fulfilled in a short period of time that they always just barely reach. He is also known to make spur-of-the-moment decisions, such as installing a swirly-slide in his office in Big Time Crib (although there is no trace of it in Big Time Reality) and doing an unannounced corporate evaluation in Big Time Live, or even introducing a new member-replacement to the group (Big Time Bad Boy) and creating a reality show on Big Time Rush's lives (Big Time Reality) thus causing way too many trouble to the guys. On numerous occasions, he has threatened to shut down Big Time Rush or otherwise handicap it and in Big Time Concert he did cancel the band forcing them to move back to Minnesota. Griffin has also a daughter named Mercedes, who despite being spoiled and having her father's obnoxious behaviour, has a softer side as seen in Big Time Demos. Moreover, Griffin occasionally enjoys causing misery to people (he decided to fire people on Christmas Eve) and despite all his attitude he claims to "love" the boys. Gustavo also describes him as having "the creative pop sensibility of a walnut." In the episode "Big Time Songwriters," it is revealed that he is very muscular.
A running gag in the series is that whenever he talks with Gustavo, he nearly always states that whatever Gustavo is planning is no longer in style; "New research shows that the (boy band, monster band, etc. etc.) is dead!" This is usually accompanied by him tossing a large research binder at Gustavo, which Gustavo almost fails to catch.
Camille Roberts (Erin Sanders) is known as the "Method Actress Queen" of the Palm Woods and can always be seen practicing her lines around the pool before her auditions. She is somewhat insane, according to Kendall in Big Time Party. Camille is a little crazy, but she is always there for the guys and is one of their closest friends. While she has been implied to be a good actress, she herself has admitted how she had to go to 32 auditions before landing a role, probably due to her deep emotional investment into her characters and sometimes extreme measures. Every time she has had an audition for a dramatic role, she slaps Logan on the face. When she and James auditioned for a role on the fictitious "Witches of Rodeo Drive," she arrived dressed in costume, packed with props, and wired herself with explosives as part of a trick to try to land the part, which she didn't get after blowing up the casting director's office. She was in love with Logan from day one, and on the episode Big Time Love Song purposely prevented him from impressing Jo by using him in a kissing scene, pretending that she was practicing her audition for One Tree Hill. Camille is best friends with Jo. In "Big Time Party", she wanted Logan to audition for a role in her "fantasy dream movie." Logan rejected the idea at first, but came back to play in her "movie" and soon began to grow feelings for her. But soon Logan had to balance her date with Mercedes' and, after Camille discovered this, she and Mercedes threw him into the pool, then agreed to dance with him but not to talk to him for a week, showing that she was really cool. Logan acknowledging his feelings for Camille, he dressed up as a prince and rode in on a fake horse to ask her to be his date for the dance. In the movie Big Time Concert, it appeared as if the boys were leaving after Griffin dumped them. After seeing Kendall and Jo kiss good-bye, Logan asked for something to remember Camille. As he leaned in to kiss her, she slapped him. Later on, when the boys came back and had to find James, Logan accidentally blurted out "Camille" instead of James, showing he missed her during their time apart. In the episode "Big Time Girlfriends", James and Camille kissed when they caught up with the acting while practicing some lines, although James claimed that Camille is not his type earlier in "Big Time Dance". This led Logan and Camille to break up and remain good friends even though they still have feelings for each other. Logan and Camille's relationship is the biggest/most like couple of the series. But they are constantly on an unresolved on again off again relationship status as stated in Big Time Girlfriends. Despite their "break-up" Camille is constantly seen helping Logan, as well as the other boys when in trouble, proving to be a valuable friend. She lives in 4J.
In "Big Time Christmas", Camille gave Logan a present and kissed him goodbye. In "Big Time Crush", Camille and Logan date other people even though each one of them realizes that they still care for the other. In "Big Time Rocker" Camille finally landed a role in a movie,("Spy High") as secret agent Mila Stark and when in role she shared some romantic moments with Logan. Logan though seemingly liked her character more than the real her mostly because she kissed him a lot. In "Big Time Secret" Logan becomes extremely jealous and overreacts when he realizes that Camille and Kendall share a secret, assuming they are dating, though the truth is they were secretly figure skating together. Also in Big Time Move, Camille was seen during a Big Time Rush performance having a flirty interaction with Logan (pronouncing "i love you"), probably hinting that they may resume their relationship in season 3. In the episode "Big Time Returns". Logan and Camille get back together again.
Freight Train (Stephen Keys) is Gustavo's personal enforcer and bodyguard. He is huge, amazingly muscular, and able to lift all the boys up at once, but also likes the boys. A play on his name, any time he appears a train whistle is heard in the background track. According to Gustavo, he is in charge of making people do what he says. Although usually portraying an intimidating and serious personality, he has a kind and caring heart towards others including Gustavo.
Mr. X (Fred Tallaksen) is the dance instructor for Gustavo's bands, as well as various other music groups. He frequently uses words that start with the letter 'X', and he has choreographed for Boy-Quake and Boys in the Attic, two of Gustavo's boy bands, as well as Madonna, Beyoncé, and Yo Gabba Gabba. He first appeared in Big Time Audition, where he tried teaching Big Time Rush how to dance. However, they ended up stressing him out, after which he "said a bunch of bad words that started with 'X'" and quit. He reappears in Big Time Dance and Big Time Concert, where he again taught them new dance moves. Also he makes a brief appearance in season two episode Big Time Girl Group choreographing Kat's Crew. He thinks they are better than BTR.
Tyler Duncan (Tucker Albrizzi) is a red-haired, chubby kid who, because of his mom, stars in the Juice Box commercials, although he really only wants to be a normal kid. He goes to the Palm Woods School with Katie and the boys. His mother is obsessed with his acting career, and with the help of Katie and the boys he is able to hide from her. He has froggy slippers that were stolen along with Carlos's helmet, Mr. Bitter's bologna, and Buddha Bob's music box. In the episode Big Time Sparks, James tried dressing him as a leprechaun to get rid of his bad luck. He appeared in Big Time Dance with a non-speaking role. He had a major role in Big Time Girl Group, where Katie and Mrs. Knight hide him from his mother during their various attempts to find friends at the Palmwoods. In the same episode, it is revealed that he was the friend Katie was looking for and that he is from Indiana. Tyler does not have his running gag with his mom anymore.
Mrs. Duncan (Alyssa Preston) is Tyler's mom and she's obsessed with his acting career. She always wants to put him in commercials, and in the episode Big Time Break she tried to put him in a diaper commercial. With the help of Katie and the boys, Tyler is able to hide from her. Also, she claims for her son Tyler be "adorable". In Big Time Girl Group, she began a friendship with Katie and Mrs. Knight. She claims that she wanted the chance for a better life for her son, which is why she is so obsessed with his acting career. In the end, they come up with the plan of no auditions for Tyler until after 3 p.m., so that he can have fun time and she still has a chance at the 'big time'. Though she stated that she will continue to chase after Tyler, neither her nor her son have been seen since Big Time Girl Group.
Guitar Dude (Barnett O'Hara) is a teenage songwriter trying to make it in Hollywood and lives at the Palm Woods, home of aspiring child stars. He usually does the background music when the boys are at the pool. In Big Time Fever it was stated that he was a former cello player before he got Hollywood Fever. He also plays background in Big Time Rush's apparently Famous midnight Jams. In Big Time Terror he plays the music for one of their midnight jams.
Buddha Bob (Daran Norris) is the grounds keeper and janitor at the Palm Woods. He is a tall, lumberjack-like man who looks like he hasn't shaved in a while and despite his fierce looks is actually very nice. He soon enough befriended the whole "Big Time Rush family" (with the guys claiming to like him, such as Carlos in Big Time Break) and especially Katie Knight, each other since his first appearance in Big Time Bad Boy. He is shown to be really weird, doing unusual things such as trying to cut a jelly doughnut with an axe or showing love to his plunger, which he named Plungy. Also, he seems to be really easy-going, usually just saying "Uh, okay" whatever question someone may ask. Furthermore, Buddha Bob enjoys playing music on his boom-box (or "portable electrified music playing machine" as he calls it) with large head-phones. His boom-box was stolen once by Lightning, the TV Wonder Dog. It is also revealed that Buddha Bob is an immigrant from Canada and that he went to a business school (Big Time Fever).
Buddha Bob is seen helping, apart from the guys, Katie, Mrs. Knight, Jo and even Gustavo in Big Time Guru by making him calmer and becoming his song writing partner though they wrote a terrible song. He somehow looks like an alternate of John Lennon in Big Time Fever with his glasses and his haircut. In Big Time Wedding, Buddha Bob marries Mrs. Knight in order not to be sent back to his country and even though Mr. Bitters who did the marriage was no longer qualified to give weddings, Mrs. Knight discovers along the way that he would be an excellent husband and that he is a great cook.
Miss Collins (Tara Strong) is the teacher at the Palm Woods school. She is very nice and sweet and even has class outside once in a while. She debuted in Big Time School of Rocque. When the boys found out they were going to the School of Rocque (Parody of School of Rock) instead of the Palm Woods school, they kept dreaming up fantasies about the Palm Woods school, like having water fights for homework and eating pie and Miss Collins having class outside everyday and she being the greatest teacher in history. When Gustavo cracked and let them go to the Palm Woods school, they were very excited at first. But when they entered the room and Miss Collins said they were going to talk about water displacement, James, Kendall, and Logan started squirting water around the room and Carlos stuffed his face in pie. When they saw an annoyed Miss Collins, they realized that school was a lot more fun in their fantasies, and they got detention. She re-appears in Big Time Dance and returns for her second major appearance in Welcome Back Big Time. She then appears in Green Time Rush.
The Jennifers (Denyse Tontz (Jennifer 1), Spencer Locke in the early Season 1 episodes/Kelli Goss in the later Season 1 episodes and present (Jennifer 2), and Savannah Jayde (Jennifer 3) are three self-absorbed girls with the same name that live and go to school at the Palm Woods who sing, dance, and act. Kendall, James, Logan, and Carlos fall for them but the girls won't date them until they become famous. In time, however, they have become more like friends to the boys as the series progresses, but Carlos still has interest in them. They actually kiss Carlos in Big Time Christmas after Carlos held a mistletoe which shows they have holiday spirit. According to Katie, they have a "lack of fear". They are all at least 16 years old. They are great actresses as shown in "Big Time Crib" when they pretended that Bitters refrigerator fell on them with "blood" (ketchup) all on them. One of the shows running gags is every time they enter a scene, they move in slow motion as if on a runway, Jennifer 2 always being in the center and the others holding her arms. In Big Time Fever, Jennifer 2 goes off to film a soap opera in Iceland and when the other two Jennifers attempt to enter in their signature walk, they stop halfway and trip apparently because Jennifer 2 wasn't there for them to hold, pushing them to make Carlos into a Jennifer. Camille comments that before catching the Hollywood Fever, the Jennifers moved in normal motion. In Big Time Beach Party, they once again reject Carlos, but they agree to help Kendall by pretending to date him (which failed). They also later in the special show some admiration for Carlos. In the episode Big Time Prom Kings Jennifer 1 (whose last name appeared to be Woods) was Carlos's date for the prom and revealed a clumsy side of herself as a result of her separation from the other Jennifers. Moreover, Jennifer One is told to be the most sensitive Jennifer. Jennifer Two agreed to date James for the episode Big Time Single and ruined his "never-been-dumped record" by breaking up with him minutes later, only to have him breaking her "never-been-dumped record" consequently. In Big Time Move Jennifer 3 appeared for the first time without the other Jennifers (it is the only episode that only one Jennifer appears) and while enjoying a Big Time Rush performance she gave Carlos a flirty wave, probably hinting she might have feelings for him, but quickly covered it up after realizing what she did. In Big Time Double Date, Jennifer 3 and Carlos go out on a date to which she stated was the best date ever. In Big Time Camp, Jennifer 2 kissed Carlos, and Carlos begins to date her. In Big Time Rescue, Carlos breaks up with her (with Kendall and Jo's help) because she and Carlos only do things that Jennifer likes.
Locke was going to return as Jennifer Two in the second half of season 2 after wrapping up Resident Evil: Afterlife. However, Locke reversed the decision in December 2011 because many people preferred Goss' portrayal. However, Locke will return as a different character in Season 3 because her character from Afterlife was written out from Resident Evil: Retribution. Note:' Kelli Goss is Spencer Locke's understudy in the role of Jennifer Two for the first season, while Locke was filming Resident Evil: Afterlife.
Jett Stetson (David Cade) is portrayed as a cocky, self-centered actor who appears in Welcome Back, Big Time and plays a character in the television show New Town High alongside Jo. He has to kiss Jo's character. As Kendall gets suspicious about it, Katie and Bitters both tell him that Jett looks way better than he does. He has dated all his co-stars, and Kendall tries to sabotage his kiss scene with Jo to the point where it almost costs him his relationship with her. Jett does not like Kendall and often insults his looks, calling his face odd. He reappears in Big Time Sneakers, Big Time Pranks, and Big Time Christmas. Jett is interested in Jo and has tried to steal her from Kendall in his debut Welcome Back, Big Time, Big Time Sneakers and Big Time Christmas which makes him an enemy to Kendall. He seems to be a somewhat of a wimp as seen in his frightened reaction when Kendall tries to hit him in Big Time Sneakers and he claims that he bruises easily in Big Time Christmas when James, Carlos and Logan carry him off and presumably beat him up after he tried flirting with Jo in front of Kendall and then teased for not having a TV show after he gave her a much more expensive gift which Kendall responds to by sicking them on him. Since his debut and all his other appearances, Jett and Kendall have never been on good terms and Kendall has stated he can't stand Jett. He appears in Big Time Pranks on the boys' team against the girls', but fails when Bitters pushes him making him set off a whoopie cushion after Jett reveals the prank war after Bitters bribed him and put all the blame on Kendall which is just another example of the two boys bad terms. Jett appears again in Green Time Rush where he is paired off with Kendall for a social studies project, (much to both of their extreme displeasure). Kendall tries to get the project done quickly so they can be done with each other, but Jett proves to be very wasteful of resources and he pays no contribution to their project. Kendall then ties him up and gags him so he can't be wasteful and the two end up winning a week at the capital to share their idea to the governor. Unfortunately, this also meant Kendall was stuck with Jett for a whole week. This episode also showed how conceited Jett is and his arrogance is shown to exceed James'. It is obvious that he is after Jo, trying to steal her away from Kendall. At the end of Green Time Rush, when Kendall came up with the idea that allowed them to speak with the governor, Jett said to him, "You know, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship," although Kendall never wanted to be friends with Jett. In Big Time Break Up, Jo left L.A., Kendall, and New Town High to shoot a movie in New Zealand; He returned in Season 3 in Big Time Double Date as Camille's date but only to make Logan jealous. In Big Time Surprise, He and Kendall seem to be on better terms and often fights with James on which of them is better looking. When Jo came back, his interest in her remained as he suggested Kendall date Lucy again so he could date Jo, but he and Kendall still seem to be on better terms as Jett helped try to stop Lucy from announcing that her hit song that made Kendall seem like a jerk was about him.
Lucille "Lucy" Stone (Malese Jow) is the new girl at the Palm Woods and secondary love interest for Kendall, first appearing in Big Time Rocker. She is a rock artist and holds a "rock" appearance and attitude. She's also smart, funny and has a sharp wit. Lucy moved into Apartment 3B, (which was a small apartment about the size of a utility closet) in which the guys often like and tend to hang out in. She lives alone. She also has recorded quite a few of her own demos. In her first appearance, Big Time Rush were paralyzed by her looks and guitar skills, while James and Carlos kept on trying to date her, though she claimed she just wanted to be friends since she'd just had a nasty breakup with her last boyfriend.

However, Lucy makes a surprise return in the Season 4 episode, Big Time Scandal, having written a song called "You Dumped Me for Her", which is supposedly about Kendall dumping her for Jo. The song becomes a monster hit and caused a scandal for the band, since if she revealed the song was about Kendall, she would be "swifting" the whole band. Kendall and Jo visit Lucy at the set of her new music video and ask her not to reveal the song is about him. Not wanting to cause trouble for the band, she agrees, but changes her mind after Kendall starts listing all the ways the song is inaccurate. Angered, she tells Kendall and Jo she's going to call a press conference and tell the world the song is about him. Later, Kendall, Jo, Camille, Jett and Buddha Bob crash the press conference and try to stop Lucy from swifting Kendall, but Lucy recognizes Buddha Bob and he accidentally blows their cover. Just as Lucy is about to make her announcement, Carlos, Logan and James (in disguise) speak on Kendall's behalf. Moved by their words, she announced that the guy in her song was not Kendall, but a combination of guys she'd gone out with. She goes on to say she had one kiss and half a date with Kendall and that it was very sweet. She tells the audience (but mostly to the guys and Jo) that it was great seeing them again and thanks them for coming. As Lucy walks off stage, she sees Kendall and Jo in the audience silently thanking her and she winks at him. The guys and Jo finish the day with a happy ending until they figure out Lucy is moving back in. In the next episode, Big Time Lies, with Lucy back at the Palm Woods, drama begins to unfold when Lucy starts to flirt with Kendall. To avoid problems with Jo, Kendall decides to keep it a secret that Lucy is talking to him again. Kendall continues to lie to Jo, usually resulting in his pants bursting into flames, but then later Kendall confesses to Jo, due to assistance from Ms. Knight, and Lucy admits she is not really interested in Kendall again, as she is only doing it to start drama as a songwriting technique, which leads her and Jo to become friends. Sometime later in the fourth season, Lucy begins to see a different side of James and gains feelings for him, though she goes on tour before she can confess them. In Big Time Dreams, she gets into an argument with James about leaving without saying goodbye.
