A Hidden Camera Show similar to Candid Camera but famous celebrities are the victims. Each week Ashton and his crew of pranksters play a joke on celebrities such as Justin Timberlake and Frankie Muniz.
Rob Dyrdek introduces the world to the most ridiculously talented young people in the country - an eclectic and diverse mix of amateur and viral talent, who compete to earn the top spot, $10,000 and Amazingness glory.
I've seen a lot of hate for this show, and I understand a lot of it. There's no doubt that Rob isn't as funny as he tries to be. There's no doubt that Rob and the producers watched Tosh.0 before pitching Ridiculousness. There's no doubt that it gets repetitive and boring at times. There's definitely no doubt that co-host Chanel West Coast is a walking headache at times. Yes, I get it. But this show was not meant for wannabe critics to watch and pick apart. It was meant for people to get a quick laugh every now and then.
Rob, despite how unfunny he is at times, is just a really laid back guy, who is fun to watch and looks fun to be around. If you cared to watch any of his other shows like Rob 'n Big (I'll always miss you Big) or Fantasy Factory, you'd see that he just enjoys getting a good laugh. That laid-back attitude obviously carries over on the random formatting of Ridiculousness, but really, whoooooo cares? If it's not your thing, don't watch it. It clearly was not made for a 30 year old who still remembers the good ol' days of Music Television. It was meant for idiot friends at parties or just fun getogethers and whatnot.
Besides, people talk like this is the worst goddamned show that MTV has ever made. If that's what you think, try to sit through five minutes of Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, Catfish, Ex on the Beach, or Siesta Key without shooting the screen. Seriously, Ridiculousness is Emmy-worthy compared to all of the other trash reality dramas that MTV airs. So quit griping, tune out if you don't care for it, and enjoy it if you're like me.
