“Working together again, my production company Superjacket and MTV have created a perfect complement to ‘Ridiculousness,’” said executive producer and host Rob Dyrdek. “Amazingness” is a fast-paced show that is to wins what Ridiculousness is to fails — with all the irreverent comedy and nonstop action you’d expect.”
In “Amazingness,” Dyrdek will introduce 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. The first act goes to the Top Spot, but every following performer has the opportunity to dethrone them. After each performance, Dyrdek and the judges will decide who stays on top and who gets dropped. The last one standing will have the “Amazingness” of a champion and walk away with US$10,000 in cash.
Rob Dyrdek became a professional athlete at age 16 and created his first company at 18, quickly becoming an influential entrepreneur. His approach quickly led him to co-create and executive produce his first television show “Rob & Big” with MTV, which proved successful and out of which came “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.” Continuing his television success, Dyrdek launched his production company Superjacket and created “Ridiculousness” on MTV, all while beating world records with physical feats and launching new brands for his venture studio, Dyrdek Machine. Dyrdek enjoys a fulfilling life with his family in Beverly Hills, while he continues to build his dream – and help others achieve their own “Amazingness”.
“Amazingness” is executive produced by Rob Dyrdek, Shane Nickerson and Blake Levin for Superjacket. Paul Ricci is executive producer for MTV.
