The Vanilla Ice Project is an American reality television series on the DIY Network. It is hosted by handyman and rapper Rob Van Winkle a.k.a. Vanilla Ice who has experience with home improvement and flipping since the 1990s buying houses in his early twenties and getting more into home improvement starting in 1998.[1][2] Season 2 of The Vanilla Ice Project premiered on January 21, 2012, and featured a new house and more up-to-date and state-of-the-art improvements. To mark the premiere, Vanilla Ice posted live Tweets during the show on Twitter, answering fan questions and commenting on the show.[3] Due to the success of the show, Vanilla Ice launched a training course that aims to help others succeed at real estate investing.[4][5]

In addition to winning the Telly Award, the Factual Entertainment Award and Hermes Platinum Press Award, the first season of The Vanilla Ice Project was selected as a finalist for the Cable Fax Awards.[6]

A deluxe edition DVD box set of the first season is to be released in late 2016. This will include deleted scenes as well as a bonus episode that follows Vanilla Ice and long time friend Dave Whitman as they remodel Whitman's home in Pennsylvania.
