My brother and his family went cave exploring today at a famous cave in Tennessee. I received a call afterwards with him asking me to guess who was in his group.Â He told me that the guy had ‘VIP’ inked on his ankle and that the first line from his hit single was “Yo VIP Let’s Kick It”.
That’s right no other than Vanilla Ice aka Rob Van Winkle.Â My bro couldn’t remember his real name and didn’t want to piss him off by referring to him as Vanilla or Ice so he didn’t say anything to him.Â I researched it a bit and it happens that Ice is in Nashville doing promo appearances for the reality TV series Ty Murray’s Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge.
Murray is bringing nine stars from the entertainment and sports world to his sprawling 2000-acre ranch in Stephenville, Texas, for an intense bull riding boot camp. The celebrities will be taught the techniques and toughness it takes to survive riding an angry 1,800-pound bull.
Bull riding has been described as the world’s most dangerous sport, and no one knows what will happen when these celebrity novices try their hand at one of the toughest challenges known to man. Some of the celebrities may chicken out, while others may be sidelined by injuries.
The nine courageous guys who are stepping up to take on the challenge are musician Vanilla Ice, actor Stephen Baldwin, actor/musician Leif Garrett, actor Dan “Nitro” Clark, actor Francesco Quinn, former football star “Rocket” Ismail, Ultimate Fighter Josh Haynes, X-Games motorcycle legend “Cowboy” Kenny Bartram and Survivor reality star Jon “Jonny Fairplay” Dalton.
A picture is truly worth a thousand words!
