Rob Has a Podcast (abbreviated as RHAP) is a reality television podcast hosted by Survivor: The Amazon and Survivor: All-Stars contestant Rob Cesternino, along with his wife, Nicole Cesternino (née Palmieri). The weekly show features discussions of the most recent Survivor episode (often with an additional guest), exit interviews with eliminated contestants and the popular recap series, Survivor Know-It-Alls, co-hosted by Rob and Stephen Fishbach (of Survivor: Tocantins and Survivor: Cambodia). The show's website, Rob Has a Website also features blog posts covering Survivor, and other reality television shows.


The show was started in 2010, with Rob and his then-fiancée Nicole covering Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. They have covered each subsequent season, as well as branching out to cover series like Big Brother (both American and Canadian versions), The Amazing Race, The Celebrity Apprentice, and Whodunnit?.

The show frequently features Survivor contestants as guests, including Aras Baskauskas, Marty Piombo, Sandra Diaz-Twine, and Tyson Apostol. Rob has also interviewed Jeff Probst once.

Survivor Know-It-Alls

In the advent of Nicole's pregnancy, in 2012, Survivor: Philippines, Rob began a new podcast series, Survivor Know-It-Alls with Stephen Fishbach of Survivor: Tocantins, billing themselves as "the guys who know everything about Survivor except how to win the game". The series, recorded live immediately after the episode airing, features a discussion of the strategy, characters, and new developments. The series continued coverage of the subsequent seasons and has been positively received, frequently placing in the Top 10 Entertainment Podcasts on iTunes.

With Fishbach competing in Survivor: Cambodia, he was temporarily replaced by writer Josh Wigler.

Reality GameMasters is a web series created by Rob Cesternino and Alex Forstenhausler that pits strategic players from both Survivor and Big Brother against each other in a game of Risk.

John Cochran (South Pacific and Caramoan), Sophie Clarke (South Pacific) and Stephen Fishbach (Tocantins) represented the Survivor series as competitors. Former Survivor contestants Andrea Boehlke (Redemption Island and Caramoan), Billy Garcia (Cook Islands), and RC Saint-Amour (Philippines) also made appearances in the web-series, while Entertainment Weekly writer Dalton Ross co-hosted the show. In the game, the three Survivor players teamed up to take out the Big Brother contestants, yet Cochran managed to take out both Sophie and Stephen to ultimately win the game.
