Most Ridiculous 3

This season SuzelleDIY (real name Julia Anastasopoulos) takes over as narrator from Schalk Bezuidenhout in this show which does the rounds of hilarious, stupid and insane videos from the worldwide web.

And because SuzelleDIY never rolls alone – she's normally accompanied by her bestie Marianne – she'll have a celebrity co-host with her every week.

Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers (or "P Divvy" to those in the know); former television anchor Riaan Cruywagen (the newsreader that never ages); comedian Schalk Bezuidenhout (known for his colourful jerseys and wacky hairdo) and singer Kurt Darren (who was on the panel that roasted Somizi) are among celebrities who will join SuzelleDIY.

From wacky weather to major bike trick blowouts, the ridiculous rules in this clip show.
