The BMX rider turned reality show host, 44, gives fans a peek at his loft in PEOPLE's exclusive clip from the first new episode, above. "This is what my house used to look like before I got married," Lavin, who tied the knot with Roxanne Siordia in 2012, jokes as he shows viewers around the mancave-esque space that is packed to the gills with posters, sports equipment and memorabilia. "It's like a museum," he adds. He shows off some of the prized possessions, including a basketball signed by Kobe Bryant, which is protected in a glass case. mtv MTV Cribs Is Back!
