If you haven’t seen it, Ridiculousness, is a hit show on MTV hosted by professional skateboarder, Rob Dyrdek. Each episode is filled with ridiculous stunts and videos pooled from YouTube for the cast and celebrity guest to comment on. KTR skater, Jagger Eaton, was invited to be a guest and will most likely have a few ridiculous videos of his own. The episode airs early in 2015. Check the show’s website or KTR to find out exactly when you can catch it!
