"Vanilla Ice Goes Amish" is a reality series on DIY Network that features 1990s pop icon and knock-out home renovator, Rob Van Winkle, aka Vanilla Ice, as he travels deep into the largest Amish settlement in the United States while on a quest to learn the lost art of hand craftsmanship.

With no frills, no music and no power tools, Van Winkle and the Amish team will tackle construction projects ranging from a kitchen reconstruction to an old-school barn-raising. Vanilla Ice will put away his smartphone, home improvement gadgets and tools, and instead immerse himself in traditional Amish family life. He will bond with a group of young Amish men and women who will teach him the traditions, practices and trades that have made the Amish one of the most mysterious — and misunderstood — groups in the world.

After his 90s chart topping hit "Ice Ice Baby," Vanilla Ice began focusing his energy on another passion — buying land and flipping houses. By renovating distressed homes/mansions and foreclosures over the years, he taught himself the basics through hands-on experience and research.
