Vanilla Ice might have reached a dead end as far as his career as a rapper is concerned, but he’s definitely strengthening his position as a reality star. After the success of The Vanilla Ice Project, he is now getting ready for Vanilla Ice Goes Amish.The Hollywood Reporter has confirmation that the DIY Network, home of The Vanilla Ice Project for the past 3 seasons, has ordered a new series, a spinoff of sorts, that will see him travel to Amish communities to learn how to flip houses the traditional way.
Vanilla Ice Goes Amish will premiere later this year.
“The universal appeal of home has resulted in the strong ratings success of programs like HGTV’s Property Brothers and DIY Network’s The Vanilla Ice Project,” Sripps Networks Interactive President of the home category, Burton Jablin, says.
“Our new series showcase star talent and help viewers create their most personal place by turning their ‘house’ into a ‘home.’ New celebrity driven vehicles and ‘hybrid hour’ programs highlight the three things our viewers love the most – real estate, renovate and decorate,” Jablin adds.
