Griffin orders a reality show about the guys' lives so that Big Time Rush get more famous and Griffin becoming even richer with record sales,and with BTR's popularity. From the beginning the boys (maybe not James) refused to be on the show because it was an invasion of their privacy, but because they were bound with contract they have no choice. At first they were doing everything normally but the reality producer soon become unsatisfied with the guys' real life because it was boring. He said that the real Big Time Rush is a disaster because James and Carlos like each other, Kendall doesn't like being embarrassed, Logan's relationship is boring, and Kelly and Gustavo froze in front of the camera so they just smiled and did nothing else. So to make the reality show more interesting, the producer installed 100 more cameras in Palm Woods, manipulates the shoots, and cast a new actor to make the drama for the show.
At the Palm Woods, Kendall got out of the pool and his swimming suit fell down. At first he didn't really mind because no one was looking, and there was no camera crew near him, but then he realize the small camera in the wall taping his butt. So he tried to get the producer to erase it. But the producer refused so Kendall tried everything to "get his butt back".
In their apartment, the producer hired an actor to talk about a bunch of lies about the boys to make the reality show more interesting with tension and drama. James and Carlos saw this and didn't like what the actor (called TJ) said about them so to make the producer happy and give the reality show "tension" they started fighting each other. Mrs. Knight who also sign a contract to be involved with the reality show, tried breaking them apart, but didn't work. When on camera, she dressed up in floral dress and be the prefect mother, serving the boys healthy snacks and talking about peace. Katie said that Mrs. Knight agreed to be on the show to pay for Katie's college fund.
Kendall tried to stay out off the cameras by using Katie as a human shield. Katie didn't sign the contract and therefore cannot be on the show (meaning that the cameras will stop rolling when she's in the screen). To put an end to the reality show, Kendall tried negotiating with Griffin, thinking that he hates the show. But instead he loves it and revealed the shocking ending for the show. It turns out that on the season finale audience will get the chance to vote to eliminate one member of BTR and pick their hot replacement.
When the boys hear this they refuse to be on the show and say that Griffin can't kick one of them out of the band because they always stick together. To bribe the boys, Griffin makes them a deal to give the member that didn't get voted out a bonus of one million dollars. To stay interesting for the reality show, Carlos and James resort to non-stop fist fighting and Logan fakes a melodramatic romance with Camille, which mainly involves kissing each other for a very long time, plus some classic Camille slapping.
To stop the reality show, the boys with help from Katie disassemble all the cameras and put cameras (secretly) in Griffin's office to make a new reality show starring him. The boys make a video of Griffin's embarrassing habits like firing people, dancing, kissing a large picture of himself hanging on a wall in his office, saying "I love you mommy" while sleeping, testing a bow and arrows on people, jumping on his office couch, doing gymnastics, singing to BTR, farting, playing with a toy car, and playing with toy animals. The video also has a clip of him doing karate punches when he gets out of the shower and his towel accidentally falls down revealing his bare butt. They threaten to upload the video online unless Griffin stops the reality show for Big Time Rush and deletes all the clips of the show.At the end, Griffin agrees to stop the reality show and fires the reality producer. The boys get their old life back without cameras... Or TJ.
