“We actually did pretty well and kept it a secret for a while,” the 24-year-old Big Time Rush singer told us when we sat down with him in New York City. The proposal went down on August 17th while he and his 25-year-old love were vacationing on a cruise ship with the rest of the BTR guys.
“We were giving him advice in the beginning,” Carlos‘ bandmate Kendall Schmidt told JJJ. “When he actually proposed to her, it was going to be some different thing. We were trying to come up with something and he was bouncing all kinds of ideas off of us. I was like, ‘There’s a helipad on the boat. What about coming in on a helicopter?’ But all these things were just impossible to do because of regulations and restrictions on the ship. We kept throwing around ideas and finally he was like, ‘You know what? We’re going to go to dinner, I’m just going to make a speech and do it.’”
In “Big Time Dreams,” it’s the Tween Choice Awards, and BTR is nominated and booked to close the show. However, their night is in jeopardy when the guys uncover an evil plan to brainwash the audience. Now BTR must find a way to defeat the bad guy, save the show, and still make sure their dreams come true.
