Santa Monica, CA (April 9, 2012) - MTV is kicking off its new Monday night line-up beginning April 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, with an all-new season of Rob Dyrdek's "Ridiculousness" guest-starring Justin Bieber in the premiere episode, and the premiere of new hidden camera show "Money From Strangers" at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Hosted by comedian Jeff Dye, the series is a new take on the hidden camera show, in the grand tradition of classic series such as "Candid Camera," up to today's revival of MTV's pop culture phenomenon, "Punk'd."

Rob Dyrdek is back - breaking down the internet's hottest and funniest viral videos, with co-hosts Chanel "West Coast" and Sterling "Steelo" Brim. In addition to Justin Bieber, fans can expect guest appearances by Wiz Khalifa, Floyd Mayweather and fiancée Miss Jackson, Duff Goldman ("Ace of Cakes"), Sara Jean Underwood (2007 Playmate of the Year), sport extremists Street Bike Tommy, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Jason Ellis and Vaughn Gittin Jr., among others.

Want more of Rob? Log onto MTV.com to catch up on the first season of "Ridiculousness," and check out the "Ridiculousness" Facebook fan page here. In addition, the season one DVD includes all sixteen episodes and bonus scenes, available exclusively at Amazon.com and Shop.MTV.com. Episodes can also be downloaded on iTunes.

"Ridiculousness" is executive produced by Rob Dyrdek, Jeff Tremaine, Shane Nickerson and Christian Duguay. "Ridiculousness" is produced by Dickhouse. Lauren Dolgen, Michelle Klepper, Kristina Edwards and Sara Cohen are the MTV executives in charge.

How far would you go for $1,000? Find out when comedian Jeff Dye snares unwitting contestants off the street to perform interactive impromptu pranks on a variety of unsuspecting victims, in the new series "Money From Strangers." MTV, with its legacy for combining comedy with hidden camera hijinks on shows like "Punk'd," will once again have viewers busting their guts with this new take on candid camera prank shows. Jeff, along with a rotating pair of comedians, uses a secret earpiece to communicate to contestants while watching all the action. If contestants can successfully complete the prank they win a $1,000 prize and maybe some lost dignity. Some of the comedians include: Ali Wong ("Are You There Vodka"), Chiddy Bang, Amir Blumenfeld (College Humor), and Jordan Carlos (MTV's "I Just Want My Pants Back").

Check out MTV.com for behind the scenes pictures and footage from "Money From Strangers". Additionally, fans can sound off on Facebook here.

"Money From Strangers" is executive produced by Tony Tackaberry, Allison Corn, and Rob Anderson for Lion TV. Tim Healy is the Executive Producer for MTV. Brent Haynes is the Executive in Charge of Production for MTV.
