Plot Synopsis

Vanilla Ice heads to Holmes County, Ohio, where he immerses himself in the Amish community to learn their traditions, practices and trades, while working on construction projects ranging from kitchen additions to an old-school barn raising. After arriving in Amish country, he says goodbye to modern conveniences and settles into his new life on the farm with his Amish host, John Schlabach. Along the way Vanilla Ice meets a group of young Amish men and women who teach him about their ways, while they rely on him to bring his Florida design talents to their jobs. In each 30-minute episode, Vanilla Ice and an Amish crew complete a different job, such as: renovating an outdated kitchen for a devout Amish family experiencing some hardship; working on a backyard patio project; transforming a dungeon-like basement into a modern, zen family room; giving a facelift to a hilltop house, including new windows, an extended patio with awning, decorative cultured stone and low maintenance landscaping; and a barn renovation, giving Ice an opportunity to give back to the community that has given him so much. VANILLA ICE GOES AMISH returned for its second season on Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on DIY Network, following Vanilla Ice as he goes back to Ohio to help his Amish friends build a year-round hunting cabin. In the season opener, "Cabin Fever," Rob's chores include an early morning pig stall-cleaning and a showdown with a Billy goat, and the episode ends with John challenging Rob to another shootout for a chance to win his buggy back.
On Saturday, November 15, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, DIY Network premiered the Season 2 finale of VANILLA GOES AMISH, immediately following a marathon (7:30-10pm) of all previous episodes from the show's second season. In the finale, "Amish Field of Dreams," Rob's getting ready to head back to Florida but wants to do something to thank his Amish hosts. When Kevin tells him about a popular community center baseball field that has no place for folks to hang out, Rob and the team go to work on bleachers and a concession stand built on an old Amish horse wagon.
