Bas Rutten is the co-host of The Men's Room along with Jeremy St. Ives. He is shown to be more aggressive while his co-host Jeremy is the nicer of the two. Although Bas has allegedly committed many crimes that would place him in prison for several life sentences, he remains on television giving advise to "other angry men". Bas has also written books, according to an episode of The Men's Room his next book will be called "You Are Either The Boss, Or The Bitch".
As the episodes progress (from Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony) Bas and Jeremy seem to be meeting each other in the middle physcologically. Jeremy seems to be getting more tough, and Bas seems to be gaining reason.
- Bas has openly admitted that he hates Virtual Reality Games, mostly because he can not maim people.
- He is a real life retired Dutch UFC Champion who helped with motion capture of Niko Bellic's fighting during the making of Grand Theft Auto IV.
- In the first episode of The Men's Room in Grand Theft Auto IV, Bas wears a green basketball jersey sporting the Liberty City Salamanders logo.
