    Hell yea Big Black needs his own show!

    Big Black sounds like he might have ego problems at the end of the commentary.
    Rob had the talent on the show. Big was cool and an obviously integral part of the show but was simply a security guard turned reality star. Im tired of reality stars thinking they are talented. If he does get his own show it would interesting to see what would happen if someone on the show got popular and wanted half of the money earned from his show.

    Big Black wanted more and Rob was like any successfull businessman, greedy and about his money. This will always drive people apart. Rob surely felt hurt that the show was done and Black didn’t want to keep it down. It seems that the skateboarder/the guy who had the ideas, the energy to push… push… push got blindsided and didn’t just smile and give in. He respectfully cut ties. Then when he decided to do another show without Black, all of sudden there was a major issue. Black, we love you, but its because you were a good friend. Now, its not nearly as cool. You guys need to hug, Go on air, get it out and maybe behind scenes squash this.

    funny that if rumours are true he is to star in the forthcoming season 4 of fantasy factory. if its such a flop why bother lol?

    i agree though, its big who sounds like the one with the ego here.

  6. boner says:

    Rob is a litlle gay

  7. Enzo says:

    Fuck rob big made the whole show

    Looks like they squashed they beef and they back to bein’ homies. I like Rob & Big as well as Fantasy Factory, but you can’t deny that Rob can be pretty immature, obnoxious, & juvenile. At all times, basically. Money aside, Black obviously got fed up with being around him

    I work on a Huge Television show on the Discovery Channel and I completely am a professional when it comes to knowing ego when I see it. Rob is the Brains,Business,Humor,TALENT period. Big Black was along for the ride and should have enjoyed that ride till the very end till there is no more, however greed is a bitch. Rob deals with Greed everyday. He also deals with leaches as well. After a while it becomes sort of numb. You have this guard up without even knowing it is there. What Rob needs to do is to do what my boss did, and it took my boss years before he figured this out. Rob needs to clean house. He needs to wean out the leaches,Greedy,negative,bitches,etc. Once he does that, then he needs to get people who don’t know who he is or put several people to the Dyrdek test before hiring them. Let them know what is the deal from the start so they know what to expect beforehand. Keep staff to a minimum and reward the ones that stay loyal. Hire a Manager who doesn’t work with you. Throw him hundreds of miles away, however know his every move. Get as many funny adventurous people you can to be on call at anytime. I can only write so much. I can literally write a book on this stuff. Rob is doing o.k. though. He just needs a little help, however it is a shame that he will have to learn the hard way instead of having someone show him. I would have loved to show him the way from experience. What a shame.

    Sounds like a bitter bodyguard who didn’t realize he was an employee and lucky that Rob gave him a shot. I’m willing to bet that when the original show was being kicked around MTV didn’t go to Big and he brought in Rob, to then play side-kick. Rob was well known in some circles before he ever got the show, most notably Skateboarding and apparel. It’s clear who the star was when Black left, who got a new show soon after? Who was Black before Rob gave him the opportunity of a lifetime. Checking his wiki the only accomplishment of note seems to be Navy chef. I find it hilarious that after this rant a few months later he came back begging. That same man that he bashed gave him a SECOND opportunity to make something of himself, personally I would have let him prove how much of a mogul he really is and get his own hustle off the ground. Now he’s on ‘Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory’ and not ‘Rob & Big’ were at the very least his name was getting exposure to which he could capitalize. That’s what a smart businessmen would do, now he’s on the same level as Drama and Chanel.

    I see it. Rob and Big didn’t know the show would be a hit, contracts aren’t all about the actors eating and the producers praying. The opposite actually, they’re contracts probably sucked at the beginning but once the ratings started to hit they ripped those in half and drew up new ones. Problem is Rob’s making bank and Big makes a lil extra, Big says whatever we’ll see. Next thing you know Rob has a huge ego, lawyers and mngrs. everywhere. Talking about movies and new shows.

  12. Bryan Constant says:

    I admit Rob has transformed into a douche bag. But so did black, he thinks he can do it so much better then Rob. NO YOU CANT. man your just a fat ass dude with a lazy eye. yeah your funny, when robs messing with you. or you make a fat person joke. Rob was already the rising star. If it were not for that show you’d be an average Joe. So “respek!”

  13. david says:

    Big black needs his show, he made rob and big,if it was not for big black on that show i would not have watched it. go get it big black

  14. hannah says:

    i think rob is cool and funny big black is just a sucurity guard whats the big deal about him

  15. samantha says:

    what the hell every body i think big black is a better person than rob

  16. Austin says:

    Well considering now big black is once again on one of robs shows he obviously can make it on his own!

  17. e says:

    Man, they are both cool as f@ck, its only obvious Rob is and should be the star…well, he is a star…yup BB is cool, but the same as Drama is cool…they all have their place and have gotten independent success…reality TV is a bunch of BS people, don’t buy into the hype, you would think Rob and BB was BFFs when in reality he was hired from a San Diego based agency and things just worked out, their chemistry was cool, but its a well scripted show and i enjoyed it and other reality shows for what it’s worth…entertainment…i also realize, i’m a little late in responding, but, i just watched an episode of ridiculousness with BB on it and got curious…I love me some RD that fool got swag, cool as hell, ego or not…lol

  18. braxton says:

    i think that they do need to recheck there thoughts about this i mean on rob and big rob was cool and i mean hes my skatebording hero but black was the funny guy he made it had spice true or not :)

  19. MrRaGeR5914 says:

    I think big is awesome but rob can be really greedy at times but hes cool too big should get a show because rob cant because hes addicted to cocaine

  20. Thec3way says:

    It’s a fckn shame…. I liked them both, I thought, they both are extremely lucky guys… The price of money and fame…. Is you friend or foe, nigga you ain’t know?

  21. Thec3way says:

    They can both do it… But they Better in the bunch…. Why everyone always gotta bullshit…. I know most shit is fake but Wtf, mother fuckers now a days, be raising the bar…. I’m from east of Buffalo, let me get a fraction, and I’ll turn it to a whole….

  22. Big Panch says:

    I change speak should have his own show and Rob should be the one sitting on the couch this time. This would be a good opportunity to get to know big. It’s only fair to get a taste of what life has to offer. Rob will most definitely support big and the rest of the game. I support big 100 percent. Go for a big can’t wait to see your show. Good job Big & Rob. Good luck. Break a Leg

  23. Tim says:

    Pretty easy to see Rob was the business man,by himself filmsy show need the classic comedy routine of little guy and big . Money got to blacks head and Rob turned out the winner.
    Rob being business man realized more money by having big black back on his new show. Weather Rob likes the man or not he understood for his own business big black was worth bring on. But as you can tell in much lesser role.
    If black hade just rode it out he would still be half of the show not interchangeable part he is now.
    Rob brought him back, but keeps him in check now

  24. gina says:

    i just saw rob last night and hes a jerk! lol way to cocky for his own good, as for big he does sound bitter XD

  25. David Winfrey says:

    Big is only a star playing off Rob. He should humble himself and ask his friend for another shot. Together they were great. Alone, Rob is really good, but Black is nowhere.

  26. Titties says:

    During Rob and Big, Big Black didn’t even live in the house he lived down the street and the show ended because rob was taking all the credit for there succes in Rob and Big

  27. Titties says:

    Guys if u want to hear the truth go on YOUTUBE and search Big Black talks about Rob I really think it will tell u about what really was going on

  28. Titties says:

    Don’t listen to tim he is a idiot Big Black had shoe signing with foot locker so he was getting shoe deals and making a good amount of money

  29. 99ways2die says:

    Tim is right. Only reason Black was able to get a shoe contract at all is because he got a name working with Rob in the first place. If he never got that job he wouldn’t have even though about making a shoe line. Big just saw Robs line and and his huge shoe collection and decided he wanted in. Black is great guy but you calling Tim an idiot? First off I heard seen that video and it’s only one guys side of the story. Second Rob IS the true business head behind them and has been for a long time. Third when Black came to Fantasy Factory which was really nothing more then a design studio in reality with allot of fun stuff to play with, Rob also gave him a place to work and I’m sure he most likely found him a new place after he decided to sell the factory off or an office in his main design studio. Yes Rob and Big was staged for fun that is true they didn’t live together but it’s a TV show, when it comes to business sense Rob has that s*** in the bag. Black just got lucky to get hired by a guy with connections.

    Typo repair, I rewrote the sentence and screwed it up.
