RVW: Roger Troutman of Zapp.
LAST MOVIE YOU LIKED SO MUCH, YOU WATCHED IT
RVW: That’s My Boy.
WK: Django Unchained.
FAVORITE TELEVISION SHOW?
RVW: The Vanilla Ice Project and Vanilla Ice Goes Amish on DIY
Network and HGTV. I never watch anything I do on TV, but these
shows get you addicted.
WK: The Vanilla Ice Project.
LAST PERSON WHO MADE YOU NERVOUS?
RVW: Robbie Madison. He came over to my house and jumped off
the roof into my swimming pool. I thought he was going to die. He
dislocated his shoulder and jumped up out of the pool and popped
it back in place like nothing happened and smiled. What a daredevil!
WK: Rita Coombs.
RVW: My family, wife, kids. That is the meaning of life. Everything
else is second place.
WK: Raising my family, and all my kids being successful.
TALENT YOU WISH YOU HAD?
RVW: Kite surfing—not as easy as it looks. I need more practice.
WK: That I could sing.
ONE SPORT YOU WOULD NEVER TRY?
RVW: Free diving. Those guys are half-fish half-man. I don’t
understand how they do it.
WK: Deep sea diving.
FAVORITE SPORT OTHER THAN MX?
RVW: Jet-ski racing. I raced on the IJSBA world tour for a few years.
FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM?
RVW: Miami Heat. Represent. I was born in Dallas, but I grew
up in Miami.
WK: Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys.
This month we visit HGTV and the DIY Network to find two longtime
friends who love motocross racing, being on the microphone, and remodeling
houses. That’s right, it’s The Vanilla Ice Project star himself, Rob “Vanilla Ice”
Van Winkle, and his Project costar, arenacross floor announcer Wes Kain.
PROBABLY JUST KEEP
BRAWLING UNTIL WE
GOT HUNGRY. —RVW
