Fallout from the All-Star Brains, Beauty & Brawn Podcast

Rob's All-Star Brains Beauty & Brawn

Fake Cast, Real Controversy

Earlier this week, Rob and Gordon Holmes got together to discuss what an all-star version of the Brains, Beauty & Brawn tribes would look like.  While the podcast was received extremely well, it was not without controversy.  The most talked about selection was the inclusion of Ciera Eastin on the brains tribe, which was the subject of a voicemail by Eric Connelly.

Rob talks about the decision to include Ciera Eastin on the brains tribe and recaps how the controversy spilled over to twitter, sparking a lively debate between Eliza Orlins (@Eorlins) and Ciera Eastin herself (@cieraEastin)


With everything that is going on, it’s sure to be a very exciting next few weeks on Rob Has a Podcast. As always, let us know what you think about this jam-packed show in the comments section below.

  • Nick Fishman

    I enjoyed Capture, might need to make time for Opposite Worlds.

  • TrollExterminator

    The 10 year Pearl Island reunion is going to be great. There should be betting on this in Vegas of who will drop the first curse word between Sandra and Fairplay. Also betting on when will Rupert start haming it up (my bet is about 2-3 minutes in). Also betting on when the reunion turns into utter chaos, it would help if Lil was there (my bet is that it’s cordial for the first 10-20 minutes then gets nasty after that).

    • susan appleby

      No. Chaos after 5-7 minutes with that crew.

  • Narborg

    hmmm, I am pretty Sure that Francesca will be Eliza’s endorsement….

  • Legionwrex

    So are you going to be doing weekly podcasts on Opposite Worlds? It seems like an interesting concept (apologies if you already answered this question, I haven’t listened to the show yet.)

    On a completely unrelated note, I would absolutely love it if you did podcasts on TruTV’s Impractical Jokers, Rob. It is the only good show on that channel and one of the funniest shows on television.

  • susan appleby

    That show reminds me of the have and have nots- which I hated. He should have given a little more info on the rules of the game. Why not reveal that? I’m not so sold that I want to watch without knowing the framework.

    Plus- no tropical scenery is a huge minus. Survivor tropics when I’m shivering in the winter is something I like to see.

    I like that they will at least switch it up so the have nots aren’t stuck.

    Good interview but this didn’t sell me on the show.

    On the other had, the new show by Ronald Moore of battlestar gallactica is pretty good tv on study.

  • susan appleby

    They don’t have enough water to poop in the toilet ? Wow sounds intriguing.

    Using twitter love?
    Is this show doing too many things in one?

    I hope others here are intrigued because I’m not watching this.

  • Trixie02

    Burton! :)

  • Matt Geoghegan

    “Just because they’re not there, doesn’t mean you can’t make fun of them.” That’s always been my life motto

  • Lisa

    The opposite worlds concept sounds interesting and I will probably watch the first episode. As for Mr. Survivor: Malcolm! Ms. Suvivor Andrea.

  • Omega Kin

    It looks like a merger of Survivor & Big Brother which is excited. Hopefully we get season 2 & they have live feeds with the contestants voting each other out in season 2. Looking forward to Tuesday.

  • Omega Kin

    In fact, I like the concept of voting two people to be eliminated & they fight each other to stay, so I would save that for season 2 but make it where the contestant are the only ones voting & not the public.

  • taylor

    The sentiment analysis on Twitter is EXACTLY how Big Brother should have determined the MVP. The problem with the MVP twist was that the anti-Elissa faction had their votes split 14 different ways. If BB had the ability to see all the indifferent/negative tweets about Elissa, this could have worked out differently. The sentiment analysis isn’t that difficult (you just buy a software that does it) so I’d be interested if they worked this in in the future.

    • … or in the past?

    • Brandon Bryce

      Hey don’t forget about the bad comments for Aaryn and Amanda. Oh but the people that are hated are sometimes the most outgoing and intersting characthers. They aren’t glaciers.

      • Suzi!

        Amanda & Aaryn didn’t win MVP over and over.

  • Keith Dixon

    We are a PLANET, let’s not forget. If RHAP really can play a big role on ‘Opposite Worlds’ then for once, the winner, decided by the public, is not guaranteed to be the hot guy that cat ladies will drool for. That’s cool with me!

    • jsizzlefresh

      Yeah, this could be a lot of fun. I also have high hopes for Opposite Worlds.

  • Brett Barsanti

    Hey Rob, this is a little off topic but what are the odds of Corinne previewing the Survivor Cagayan cast once it is announced? She said that she didn’t want to do it for Blood vs. Water because she knew people on that cast but since Cagayan is reported to be all new people I think she might be up for it.

    Also, did I catch a Naonka joke when you said “up to smuff” or am I hearing things?

    • You heard correct. I will do my best to get Corinne to preview the cast. She just went on a vacation, so maybe the cast will be out when she gets back.

  • Tyler Frederickson

    @robcesternino:disqus will you do Opposite Worlds Podcast

  • DannyRaisin4

    Please cast Hayden Moss on opposite world, he would be the perfect contestant.

  • Brian L


  • Carlos Vidal

    Wasn’t Survivor Fiji suppose to be like what Opposite Worlds is. It is just one tribe of Haves and Have-not except I guess OW you have the chance to switch sides more than Survivor
    Am I the only one who sees this?

  • Zack

    i know this is completely out of left field but at the very beginning you said we would have two exit interviews for survivor bbb but heroes v villains was two hours and we just got one i think and hope that it is the same for this season where days 1-3 are just extended over two hours… i dont want one less week of survivor!

    • jsizzlefresh

      They delayed the premiere to the 26th, so they need to have two episodes to make sure the season still ends at the same time.

      • Zack

        I know they delayed it but I don’t think that would mean they have to end it exactly on the same week

  • Snappy

    Not sure about opposite worlds but I will give it a chance. Seems like there was a lot going on but it’s nice to have something to watch before Survivor.

    My votes are going to….

    Miss Survivor: Brenda Lowe, Hope Driskill and Rachel Foulger

    Mr Survivor: Malcolm Freberg, Hayden Moss and John Cody

    I would be so happy if the roast could be put on website. Next weekend is my anniversary and won’t be able to watch it live :(

    I love the drama over the all-star version of the Brains, Beauty & Brawn tribes but some people took it a little too far. There were some mean comments. I stand by your choice for Ciera. I feel like she had a couple outwit moments and would be interesting to she what she does without her mom holding her back.

    Love the podcast as always :) keep up the good work

  • libbos

    this is big brother vs. survivor basically

  • Meren Roberts

    I hope that people upload opposite worlds to youtube cos I want to watch it but as I live in New Zealand I can’t watch it on tv.

    Rob, I was somewhat confused – are you only podcasting about the premier of this show or will you be podcasting about it every week?
