Season 1, Episode 5

A Real Amish Barn Raising!

When John heads out of town for a horse auction, Vanilla Ice asks to work with Robert on a neighbor's barn renovation - an excellent opportunity to give back to the community that has given him so much. Knowing they'll need all the manpower they can get, Rob brings in his own team from Florida while Robert rallies all the familiar Amish faces to join forces in an old-fashioned barn raising.
