Their off-the-wall shenanigans throughout the series gained them fame within the reality TV world. Each episode details a task or exploit that the men search to complete, not only in the L.A. home they share but with many travels around the country. These include eating contests, obtaining Guinness World Records, purchasing and showing a miniature horse, recording a song, and even attempting time travel. Along for the ride in Dyrdek's posse: is his cousin and assistant Christopher Drama Pfaff, his 2nd bodyguard Rashawn Bam Bam Davis, and Meaty the bulldog. While following the main characters of Rob Dyrdek and Big Black the show has also hosted other big names with appearances made by Three Six Mafia and Steve Berra. The men also create their own alter egos with Big Black as male stripper Black Lavender and Rob as Bobby Light, his own version of a soul-full one hit wonder. Rob & Big often work as partners through Rob's many business endeavors, giving viewers a glimpse into the entrepreneurial life of a professional athlete by going beyond the skate park. While the group remains silly through each episode they do strive to still be good and upright citizens. They go out of their way to help the less fortunate and offer opportunities and safe activity spots to kids within their community. Broadcast on MTV and MTV2 each 30 minute episode is sure to bring a laugh and a smile to viewers. Rob & Big continues to be a hit though new episodes no longer air. The show is a great example of the love and camaraderie in lasting friendships.
