Meet the Host

Vanilla Ice

Although he’s best known for his '90s music, Rob VanWinkle is also a successful real-estate entrepreneur and a remodeling expert with more than 15 years of hands-on home improvement experience.

About the show

Vanilla Ice is back to tackle his toughest Florida flip ever. The pop icon and knock-out home renovator has taken his biggest risk yet, investing in a high-dollar lakefront dump in need of a top-to-bottom transformation. That means ripping rooms to the studs, adding a new pool, a boat dock with a tiki hut and state-of-the-art technology all around. Will his champagne taste end up costing him a profit? Or can he and his crew flip this tacky mess and still come out on top?
