All right, stop, renovate your home and listen! Ice is back with an all new… reality show???
Yes. On October 14th the DIY Network aired the premier of the “The Vanilla Ice Project“, which is a home-remodelling show. Dang. I wish Canada had the DIY Network. This show sounds like it would be amazing.
Remember the lyrics from Ice Ice Baby?? Who would have thought that Vanilla would now be using words such as “earth tones” and “hue”.
Robert Van Winkle, aka Vanilla Ice, has been flipping homes for a long time, which makes him the only DIY’er with street-cred.
According to Van Winkle on The Daily News, “I’ve been flipping homes for about 10 years… I enjoy it. I like to sit back and cross my arms and think, ‘Look at what I’ve accomplished,'”.
Fear not Ice Fans… “It’s just a hobby,” he says of the ‘The Vanilla Ice Project’. “I play 100 concerts a year. I make good investments here. I’ve never left the music industry.”
Bob Vila, eat your heart out!
