Pepa, Vanilla Ice Tapped For ‘Surreal Life Fame Games’

VH1 is starting

production on a new Surreal Life spin-off titled The Surreal Life

Fame Games, which reunites ten previous cast members in Las Vegas.

Fame Games

will be a ten-episode elimination contest featuring cast members from the

original series, who will have their "Hollywood survival skills challenged"

for the $100,000 grand prize.

The show will

be hosted by Robin Leach, of the classic television show Lifestyles Of The

Rich And Famous.

Rappers Pepa (Season

5) of Salt-N-Pepa fame, Vanilla Ice (Season 2), Ron Jeremy (Season 2), Tracy

Bingham, (Season 2), Emmanuel Lewis (Season 2) and wrestler Chyna Doll (Season

4) are among the participants in the new series.

"It’ll be

enormous fun to bring all of these larger than life Surreal celebrities to live

together in one place as they compete for the grand prize," said series

Executive Producer and co-creator Mark Cronin. "There’s no way there won’t

be fireworks."

Competitions include

the "Red Carpet Fashion Showdown," "Paparazzi Hide-and-Seek"

and "Hotel Room Trash-a-thon."

The show is slated

to debut later this year.
