Vanilla Ice is no stranger to reality TV, but his latest venture may be his strangest one yet. "Vanilla Ice Goes Amish" is actually a series and it will be debuting on DIY Network later this year.
The title pretty much says it all. Ice (real name Robert Van Winkle) will embed himself in the Amish community, which prides itself in a strong work ethic and some awesome barn raisings. And they accomplish their master craftsmanship without the aid of electricity.
The series, which was announced as part of DIY's Upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday, is currently in production. But Van Winkle shared his enthusiasm via Twitter, writing, "This show is going to be amazing, pure magical. Get in where you fit in, and I'm sitting in with the Amish. LOL."
Van Winkle is already part of the DIY family with his other reality series, "The Vanilla Ice Project," in which he renovates old homes. The series is currently airing its third season. A fourth season will air this fall.
