THE VANILLA ICE PROJECT PREMIERING JULY 15TH

Vanilla Ice



New York -- June 20, 2017 Pop icon Vanilla Ice, a.k.a. Rob VanWinkle, goes to Florida’s Treasure Coast to tackle his next house renovation and flip during the new season of DIY Network’s popular series, The Vanilla Ice Project. Premiering Saturday, July 15, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the 13-episode arc will follow Vanilla Ice as he launches his most colossal and lavish renovation to date—the transformation of a dilapidated 7,000-square-foot home into a contemporary oceanfront estate that features a rocket ship play space, an indoor hibachi grill room and a custom pool.



The new season features Vanilla Ice and his team of “construction ninjas” as they face time and budget constraints while restoring a sprawling but decaying property. Each episode features the team as they strip the home down to its bones and transform it into a modern, Polynesian-style oceanfront retreat. When Vanilla Ice is finished, the astonishing overhaul is sure to wow visitors for years to come.



“This season we’re going to bring the bling,” said Vanilla Ice. “There’s no problem too big, no details too small, and it’s guaranteed to be one heck of a ride!”

TRANSFORMATIONS & KNOCK OUT RENOVATIONS

TELEVISION 2014

Danille Bryk



More massive transformations, knock-out renovations and down-and-dirty projects are on the way as DIY Network presents fresh episodes of Bath Crashers (Matt Muenster), A Bryk at a Time (Danielle Bryk), Garage Gold (Kraig Bantle), Rescue Renovation (Kayleen McCabe), along with popular docu-series Massive Moves, Building Alaska and Renovation Realities. New episodes of the seven series will premiere in January 2014.



“Our experts tackle projects that every homeowner could encounter,” said Steven Lerner, senior vice president, programming, HGTV and DIY Network. “Titles like Massive Moves and Building Alaska showcase daring individuals who take risks to accomplish their goals, while hosts like Danielle Bryk demonstrate the challenges of owning a business and having a family.”


Building Alaska
Returning for a second season in A Bryk at a Time, Danielle Bryk will continue to run her successful design firm while balancing a hectic home life with three kids. Busy schedules, daring missions and homes in the balance, the sophomore season of Massive Moves includes amazing whole-home relocations, like a 100-ton, landlocked British Columbia house that is guided down the Fraser river by tugboat, and a historic train station in Saskatchewan is hauled across flooded fields to be converted into a couple’s dream home. Nature’s timing is essential in season two of Building Alaska, as professional builders Lee Raymond, Jim Wagner and Chuck Gerwig lead their construction teams on missions to develop large scale homes miles from civilization.



The ninth season of Bath Crashers will feature licensed contractor Matt Muenster as he ambushes unsuspecting homeowners and offers impromptu makeovers. Budgets, tempers and relationships will be tested in the 12th season of Renovation Realities, as real life couples face renovation challenges together. While distressed homeowners in need of repair turn to licensed contractor Kayleen McCabe who returns to help combat structural damage caused by shoddy workmanship for a fifth season of Rescue Renovation. New episodes of Garage Gold will follow host Kraig Bantle and his crew as they continue to clear dysfunctional spaces free of charge if they can keep any valuables they find.

DIY Network is coming to the aid of desperate homeowners everywhere with its new series Rescue My Renovation. The half-hour program, hosted by contractor John DeSilvia, documents the serious side of renovation, as homeowners combat the structural and monetary damage caused by contractors with shoddy workmanship and builders who take the money and run. John comes to the rescue, transforming these nightmare renovations into a dream come true for distressed homeowners. Rescue My Renovation premieres on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. ET.


“Unfortunately, this show’s concept is all too familiar to many homeowners,” said Steven Lerner, DIY Network’s vice president, programming. “In no time, unqualified and unprofessional workers can take a renovation from bad to worse. The aim of Rescue My Renovation is to educate people about how to get their project back on track as quickly as possible with the help of a qualified contractor.” 


DIY Network’s Rescue My Renovation features some of the most common problems that homeowners are left with after their contractors leave them high and dry with a sloppy renovation. In the debut episode, U.S. Air force service member Chris Holman and his wife Dolores take John on a tour of renovations performed by an unqualified contractor. Immediately, John notices cracks forming around the opening the contractor made when knocking down a wall. While inspecting a leak in the upstairs crawlspace, he discovers that the shingles were not installed properly either. John wastes no time starting demolition in search of solutions for this military family. In each episode, John works quickly to repair damage and finish incomplete jobs, leaving every homeowner with a home that is not only beautiful, but safe as well.
