Robert Stanley "Rob" Dyrdek (born June 28, 1974) is an American professional skateboarder, actor, entrepreneur, producer, philanthropist, and reality TV star. He is best known for his roles in the reality shows Rob and Big and Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory. Rob Dyrdek was born in Kettering, Ohio to Gene and Patty Dyrdek. He has one sister, named Denise, and his cousins Christopher "Drama" Pfaff and Scott "Big Cat" Pfaff (Drama's older brother) are featured in Rob and Big and Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory. He also has two bulldogs named Meaty and Beefy. Dyrdek first starred in an MTV reality series, entitled Rob & Big (aired November 2006 to April 2008), with his best friend and bodyguard Christopher "Big Black" Boykin as well as his cousin, Chris "Drama" Pfaff. After three seasons, Boykin's long time girlfriend had a baby and caused him to leave the show.

The "Fantasy Factory" is a converted warehouse where Dyrdek runs his many entrepreneurial ventures.
