Bad luck follows 'Big Time Rush' star Ciara Bravo in Nickelodeon's 'Jinxed' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Jinxed, Nickelodeon’s latest original TV movie, Big Time Rush star Ciara Bravo faces a villain that just won’t go away: bad luck. Bravo plays Meg Murphy, a girl whose family is cursed with being unlucky forever. In other words, if something can go wrong, it will go wrong for her and her family.

And in an exclusive clip from the film, Meg explains exactly what that entails: a drinking fountain that works just fine for others malfunctions for her, her classmates fear her every move, and even a cheerleading tryout goes awry because of a flying shoe. To the happily un-cursed, accidents like these are simply accidents. For Meg, her entire life revolves around such mishaps, and she’s on a mission to end them.
