Rob Dyrdek is causing double trouble with the fifth season of his MTV series, which is set to debut on Monday, March 19.

Among the daredevil stunts to be featured on the upcoming season is “The Corkscrew Kickflip,” in which Dyrdek’s alter ego “Super Sonic Rob” attempts – and completes – a full 360-degree car kickflip. If the stunt looks familiar, viewers may recall seeing the video featured on Chevy’s Super Bowl commercial earlier this month.
 
Joining Dyrdek is his faithful crew of Factory regulars, including Christopher “Big Black” Boykin, cousins Chris “Drama” Pfaff and Scott “Big Cat” Pfaff, “rapping receptionist” Chanel West Coast and Ridiculousness co-host Sterling “Steelo” Brim.

Dyrdek’s antics continue with becoming an ordained minister and marrying his sister and future brother-in-law, the creation of “Dyrdek Day,” an official Los Angeles City certified holiday to celebrate kindness, hugs and random charity, and having Drama “mowed down” by an angry bull.
 
Bobby Light -- one of Dyrdek’s many alter egos -- also makes his triumphant return as the overweight pop icon “Blobby Light,” breaking from retirement to record a new single titled “Chunky as Charged” with Big Black.
