Do you want your house "iced" by '90s pop star Vanilla Ice? Well today just might be your lucky day. The rapper-turned-home renovator is giving away a rock star room remodel in what DIY is calling the "Ice My House" contest. As Ice himself proclaimed, “If there is a problem, yo, I’ll solve it.

Interested viewers have until June 27 to upload video and photos of their homes at and explain to Vanilla Ice why he should honor them with a makeover. The winner will get a $30,000 room renovation by Ice and his crew from his DIY series The Vanilla Ice Project. They will also be featured in an hour-long special called VIP: Ice My House, set to kick off the new season of his show in early 2012.

In a recent press release Ice commented, “I’m looking forward to visiting a viewer in their hometown and giving them an off-the-hook renovation. I’ll take their space from zero-to-hero and have a little fun in the process.”

The Vanilla Ice Project features the "Ice Ice Baby" singer, a.k.a. Robert van Winkle, performing his second great love — buying and flipping houses. The first season featured his remodel of a 7,000 square foot Palm Beach mansion. In 2012 he'll be back for more with his team Wes, Handsome Dan, Rodney and Joey.
