ROB DYRDEK'S FANTASY FACTORY- 9:00PM ET/PT
After successfully taking over a 25,000 square foot industrial complex turned and turning into funhouse and the nucleus of Rob's skateboard empire, known as Dyrdek Enterprises, Rob, Drama and the rest of Corpo are ready for one last Fantasy. Rob holds a skate contest at the Fantasy Factory with fellow pro skaters Ryan Sheckler, Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston and others. Prizes include a beaten up dancing gorilla, an early eighties moped, and a 1986 mint-condition Fiero. Rob gets a chance to drag race his newly beefed up 1969 Camaro against Sheckler's new Ferrari, and teases Chanel relentlessly about her alleged crush on Ryan.
BULLY BEATDOWN - 9:30PM ET/PT
Pro MMA fighter Jason "Mayhem" Miller comes to the rescue of those who have been bullied. Mayhem challenges Bullies to stop picking on the small and the weak and to get in the ring with someone their own size - a professional MMA fighter - or look like a coward. For this final round, Mayhem calls up fighter Thomas "Wildman" to challenge neighborhood menace Dennis. Dennis is a beefed-up bully who has been punking Stan and Andrey for years, leaving them bruised, scarred, and scared. But Dennis is no push over, even for the Wildman, as viewers will see in the most contested fight of the season.
NITRO CIRCUS- 10:00PM ET/PT
Travis Pastrana, nine-time X Games Gold Medalist, has built an empire doing things previously thought impossible and always unadvisable. Whether it's jumping out of an airplane without a parachute or being the first person ever to double black flip a motorcycle, Pastrana does not stop. Joining him in the Nitro cast are his equally insane and entertaining buddies: childhood friend and professional mountain biker Jim DeChamp, charismatic loud-mouth nemesis Andy Bell, skier/base jumper Erik Roner, professional female motocross racer Jolene Van Vugt, and husky and hysterical former sheet-rocker Streetbike Tommy. For their final hoorah, the crew head to Jamaica, where they join forces with members of the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team for some cool runnings, Nitro-style. Streetbike Tommy gets an opportunity to show the Jamaican Ruff Ryders just how he got the name "Streetbike." And to top off the island adventure, the cast come face to face with a Jamaican ramp beast that sits atop a forty-foot cliff above the Caribbean.
