NEW YORK -- January 10, 2013

Pop icon turned knock-out home renovator, Rob Van Winkle, a.k.a. Vanilla Ice,
and his crew of contractors are rocking home renovations in the third season
of DIY Network’s popular primetime series “The Vanilla Ice Project,”
premiering Sunday, Jan. 27 at 10 p.m. ET. Fans also can see more of the
Vanilla Ice brand of mind blowing renovations in his new one-hour special,

"I'm pumped to bring the gang back together for more renovations that viewers
will have to see to believe!" said Van Winkle, "I love showcasing the latest
and greatest state-of-the-art, in-home technology. Having fans who keep coming
back to watch me do a passion I love is an amazing feeling."

As the next 13 episode arc of “The Vanilla Ice Project” kicks-off, Van Winkle
and his reliable crew of contractors execute the extraordinary transformation
of a 6,000 sq. ft. home in Palm Beach, Fla. that is in desperate need of a
facelift. The team hunts down the hottest home improvement trends and
technologies to give the property the jaw-dropping overhaul it needs to be a
contender in today’s improving housing market. The first big project is a pool
that’s in terrible shape after cracking and rotting for years. The pool
renovation tests the team’s skills and patience, and in the end, it’s all
worth it because nothing sells a house in Florida like a beautiful pool.

Fans who just can’t wait one more week to see Van Winkle and his crew back in
action can catch “Ice My House,” which  documents the story of nationwide
contest winners, Michelle and Nesty Nunez of Lake Worth, Fla., who won a rock
star, $30,000 outdoor renovation courtesy of DIY Network. The project is put
on ice when a full-blown hurricane roars into town, but Rob and his crew
buckle down and deliver a spectacular renovation despite the storm. The Nunez
family’s backyard and patio is “iced” out with a show-stopping water feature,
retractable pergola, an iguana house and enough tropical plants to make it
feel like a real jungle paradise.

After his 90s chart topping hit “Ice Ice Baby,” Van Winkle began focusing his
energy on another passion – buying land and flipping houses. By renovating old
homes and foreclosures over the years, he taught himself the basics through
hands-on experience and research. With each new season, Van Winkle brings to
the table nearly two decades worth of knowledge and talent. Touted by The New
York Times as “a tribute to ingenuity, to turning lemons into lemonade,” the
first season of DIY Network’s “The Vanilla Ice Project” premiered to
critical-acclaim in October 2010 and was followed by a second season, which
premiered in January 2012.
