Things are about to get pretty surreal down on the farm!

The DIY Network announced at the Upfronts earlier this week that 1990s one hit wonder-turned-reality star, Vanilla Ice, will be starring in a new show where he lives among a community of Amish people in a remote location.

Vanilla Ice has transformed himself into a reality star since his second album tanked back in 1994

The Ice Ice Baby singer, real name Robert Van Winkle, will embed himself with the devoutly religious folks in a bid to learn their wood working secrets.

The Amish are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships that form a subgroup of the Mennonite churches and are known for living very simply, dressing modestly and plainly, working hard, having a strong work ethic and rejecting the many conveniences of modern technology, such as electricity and cars.

"This show is going to be amazing, pure magical. Get in where you fit in, and I'm sitting in with the Amish. LOL," Van Winkle tweeted recently.

The former rapper has transformed himself into a reality star since his musical career hit the skids after his second album tanked in 1994.

Ice, real name, Robert Van Winkle, has previously starred on The Surreal Life and The Vanilla Ice Project

The 45-year-old appeared on a season of The Surreal Life in 1994 before going on to star in a spin-off of the hit VH1 show in 2007 called The Surreal Life: Fame Games.

Most recently he's been gracing the screens on his home renovation series, The Vanilla Ice Project which debuted on the DIY Network on October 2010.

The Amish are known for their strong work ethic and desire to live the simple life
