Of all the various consumes that Vanilla Ice has donned over the years, this latest might be his most sincere.

Of all the various consumes that Vanilla Ice has donned over the years (pop-rap crossover icon, street thug, hardcore metalhead), this latest—that of a home improvement contractor—might be his most sincere. Now airing on the DiY Network, The Vanilla Ice Project follows Robert Van Winkle as he renovates multi-million dollar mansions. The early episodes are pretty promising, showcasing his impressive knowledge of construction, as well as his theatrical skill in front of the camera. 


All-in-all, as unlikely as it might sound, The Vanilla Ice Project works quite well. Of course, there’s no guarantee on how long the show will work. But, just like a fresh coat of paint in your living room, it’s good for now. 


Now, if Mike Holmes would put on some of Ice’s old parachute pants while doing his work, that would be a show to catch.

You can admit that you never thought Vanilla Ice would ever hold any kind of influence over any developments in any area of the music industry. You’d be in good company. Unfortunately, you’d also be wrong.
