Survivor: Islands of Ink BrantSteele with Mike Bloom and Jessica Liese
In a special offseason podcast, Rob Cesternino is joined by the co-host of the RHAP B&B, The Amazing Race recaps, and the Top Chef RHAP-up Mike Bloom, and the co-host of The Amazing Race recaps as well as the international Amazing Race podcasts Jessica Liese. As announced on the Survivor: Winners at War episode 13 feedback show, Mike Bloom challenged the listeners of Rob Has a Podcast to raise over $23,000 for the Direct Relief charity, getting personal protective equipment to the doctors and nurses on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. If this goal was met, Mike pledged to get a Survivor themed tattoo.
This goal was met and well exceeded so in true Mike Bloom fashion, the tattoo that will end up going on his body forever will have to be determined using the Survivor season simulator known as BrantSteele. Earlier this week, Rob, Mike, and Jess asked the listeners of the podcast to submit their ideas and sketches for the tattoo. Since we had well over the 20 ideas needed for the simulation, the first podcast entails the crew narrowing the field down to 20 contenders pre-approved by Mike’s wife Angela Bloom for the fake season Survivor: Islands of Ink. Now, this is the simulation of this fake Survivor season where the winner will be the tattoo that will go on the body of Mike Bloom forever.
