The Vanilla Ice Project Cast: Who is in it?
‘The Vanilla Ice Project’ has a more or less fixed cast, insofar it includes Vanilla Ice himself and his associates or Ice’s ‘ninjas’. They team up with local contractors who help them in the makeover and allow for better distribution of the workload. Notably, Wes Kain is Ice’s right-hand man and serves as the foreman on all projects. For all of Vanilla Ice’s expertise in flipping houses, it is Wes who does most of the micromanagement, be it the outlining of problems while Ice sagely nods his head, or the actual heavy lifting, while Ice swings a hammer and utters some cool line like “It’s dated and hated.”
In season 10, Vanilla Ice and his crew will return once again to pimp out big projects combining an artistic approach with state of the art technology, to provide a unique experience to some lucky homeowner.
