Time to get your thinking caps on: here's this week's Connect The World Six Degrees game.

Can you link Vanilla Ice to Claudia Schiffer?

Can you link Vanilla Ice to Claudia Schiffer?

Here’s how to play: We choose two people in the news and ask you to connect them in six short steps.

We've chosen one of this week's Connectors of the Day and another coming up next week.

First up is Robert Matthew Van Winkle, better known by his stage name "Vanilla Ice." The American rapper is best know for his 1989 hit "Ice Ice Baby," which became the first hip hop single to top the U.S. Billboard charts.

We want you to connect him to Claudia Schiffer – the German supermodel. Remember, you need to come up with five people between those two... for a total of six links.

Submit your unique answers below and we’ll pick the most imaginative answer on Friday.

Friday's Connector: Paula Radcliffe

Long distance runner Paula Radcliffe is no stranger to record breaking: she holds the world record for the women's marathon.

Paula Radcliffe is a marathon-running mother.

Paula Radcliffe is a marathon-running mother.

In 2003, she ran the London course in an impressively short two hours, 15 minutes, and 25 seconds. She's also the world record holder in both 10- and 20-kilometer road race disciplines.

Paula is so dedicated to her sport in fact, it seems nothing will stop her; not even her asthma...or the call of nature.

She hit the headlines in 2005, when she stopped to relieve herself by the side of the road during the London marathon, and more recently she returned to professional competition just eight months after the birth of her daughter, Isla.

Now gunning for a gold medal in the 2012 olympic games, she joins Connect the World to answer your questions.

Do you want to know her aspirations for the future? Or what it's like to balance family life with such a grueling athletic discipline?

Leave your questions below, and Becky will use the best of them in her interview with Paula Radcliffe this coming Friday.
