Karate Expert Matthew Mounce appears in this exclusive sneak peek, which features an ill-fated roundhouse kick. “That second kick, I’m sorry there was no way that was an accident,” Mounce exclaims. “He took his jaw out!” Watch above.
 
Dyrdek spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about his latest venture with the network, which he likened to a modern day America’s Funniest Home Videos, and what viewers can expect to see in the forthcoming season of Fantasy Factory.

“It should just be funny,” he said of choosing Ridiculous clips. “It’s usually sort of action oriented. It’s more of a moment in time, that a once in a lifetime moment, captured. Not as much what goes viral, but a moment in time that an accident, a crazy thing, just happened to be caught on camera -- and it can’t be too gory, cause it has to make you laugh.”
 
While Dyrdek said he would never consider his own Jackass style program (“That’s just straight up and down crazy talk”), he does tease one risky undertaking for Fantasy Factory’s next broadcast.

“I’m gonna do a stunt where I’m gonna flip a car 360, ramp-to-ramp, to open up the season,” he confirmed. “I [also] just convinced my sister and her boyfriend to get married.”
 
Why?
 
“So I could become ordained and marry them,” he explained.
