Rob will be bringing the best of the internet to MTV with his new series "Ridiculousness," in which Rob takes the funniest amateur internet videos and gives his unique perspective and spin, complete with a studio audience and appearances by friends Johnny Knoxville, Travis Pastrana, Ryan Dunn and Big Black. It's sure to be a ridiculous season!

"Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory" Season 4 Fans can expect the most outrageous and humorous stunts this season in the 25,000 square-foot warehouse turned funhouse known as the Fantasy Factory, when it returns with nine new episodes and a bonus clip special. The possibilities are endless inside the walls of Rob's continually evolving canvas. Some of this season's highlights include Rob getting up-close and personal with a tiger, Rob's cousin Drama becoming a "Man Dime" (AKA a perfect ten), Big Black designing a line of skinny jeans, and "Bieber Fever" taking over the Factory. Guest appearances include Justin Bieber, DEVO, Rob's Midwestern mom Patty´┐Żand you never know who else will be catapulting by the Factory.

The Fantasy seems endless for Rob Dyrdek and all of the employees at Dyrdek Enterprises in Downtown Los Angeles.

Along for the adventure once again is Rob's cousin and bonafide mini-mogul, Chris "Drama" Pfaff, the king of the awkward jungle, Scott "Big Cat" Pfaff and the blonde and bubbly, "rapping receptionist," Chanel West Coast. This crew, along with all of the employees of Corpo, help to make Rob's insane ideas and ridiculous adventures more than just a reality, but a way of life. Season highlights include Rob and Big Black fronting a death metal band called "The Bleeding Frogs," the whole cast invading Mardi Gras to rebuild a skate plaza and ride a custom-made float, Rob helping to transform Drama from a "Peckface" into a "Man Dime," forming a dead serious dodgeball team named "The Dodging Devil Donkeys" and watching Rob get run down by a 400-pound Bengal tiger. Special appearances include Justin Bieber, DEVO, Braco the healing gazer, Fabio, legendary wrestling icon Rowdy "Roddy" Piper, and Rob's Midwestern mom, Patty Dyrdek. Just when you thought his life couldn't get any more obscure and insane, Rob pushes it all to the next level in this new chapter, solidifying it as the most exciting and hilarious season yet.
