The Real Reason Ridiculousness Needs Chanel West Coast

Alright, let's just be honest here. We love Rob Dyrdek. We love Sterling "Steelo" Brim. But if Ridiculousness didn't have Chanel West Coast, would it really be as good? There would still be the funny videos, Rob laughing on stage, and Steelo cringing at any painful-looking moment, but Chanel brings things to a whole new level.

The truth is, loads of people would love Chanel's job. In an interview on Hot 97 in 2015, Steelo spoke with Laura Stylez about Ridiculousness. Stylez said the first time she watched the show, she called her friend to talk about Chanel, saying, "There's this girl. How the f**k did she get this job — this Chanel West Coast, man? The best job ever! Watching funny videos and talking s**t."

When Steelo called her out on it and said, "You wanted the job," Laura laughed and said, "Of course!" The truth is though, no one can do what our girl Chanel can do.

Chanel West Coast won an award for her laugh

There's no one quite like Chanel West Coast. She's been with Ridiculousness since 2011, according to Newsweek, so she goes way back with Rob Dyrdek. But Chanel has remained in the spotlight because she can do so much. According to her Instagram bio, she's a self-proclaimed "Rapper/Singer/Songwriter/Host/Actress." That's a lot to juggle, but she does it.

In a very entertaining house tour with In Touch in March 2020, Chanel gave the crew an inside look at her life. In her dining room, she showed off a shelf of memories, including some awards that prove how accomplished she is, most notably a BET Award she won with Young Money in 2014. She had another one from YouTube for her first 100,000 subscribers, but proudly pointed out, "I have way more than that now."

Chanel also showed her "Ridicky" award and clarified that it wasn't from a "real award show," but that they just made their own Ridiculousness awards. She won for the best laugh. "I think I deserved that," she said. Yup!

Chanel West Coast brings the glam

On her home tour with In Touch, Chanel West Coast showed off her glam room — complete with a vanity filled with makeup, some of her shoes, a wall of wigs, and her gorgeous performance clothing, including a sexy, orange suit she wore opening for Cardi B. Wow!

Behind-the-scenes shots of her glam room show how dedicated she is to serving looks while hosting Ridiculousness. She even has a custom chair, commissioned by her hair and makeup crew from Ridiculousness, with "West Coast" written on the back in rhinestones. When she admitted she's going to bring the chair to set, she said, "I already know that Rob and Sterling are going to make fun of me for having this new, extremely blinged-out chair on set, but I don't really care."

Chanel doesn't just serve looks... she creates looks with her clothing line, LOL Cartel. In the tour, she showed off some items that she keeps in the house to give to influencers, so she obviously knows a thing or two about creating killer fashion. And her style isn't the only thing she takes seriously.

Chanel West Coast gives her all to her music

Chanel West Coast doesn't just look great — the rapper also defends herself fearlessly and it's totally inspiring. In a now-iconic moment on Ridiculousness, Chanel went off on The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God for undermining her rap career. Chanel literally jumped to her feet to tell him why he was wrong and why getting signed by Lil Wayne's label is nothing to brush off. It was epic.

In that same Ridiculousness clip, Chanel pointed out that she's collaborated with some major names in the music industry. "I did a song with Snoop Dogg after getting into a verbal argument with him, because he respected me so much after I spoke my mind to him, he still came back and did a song with me," Chanel said. She later told Charlamagne, "You don't know my musical track record... so get familiar."

So, Chanel brings the laughs, the looks, the music, and some inspiring self-confidence to the show. Ridiculousness would be lost without her!
