Reality TV RHAP-Ups is a division of Rob Has a Podcast, marketed as "podcasts about even MORE reality shows, hosted by friends of Rob." This division includes shows and podcasts that are not covered by Rob Cesternino and are instead hosted by various podcasters in the RHAP community.
RHAP-Ups' current repertoire includes series such as ABC's The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise; MTV's The Challenge and Are You The One?; Bravo's Top Chef; Logo's RuPaul's Drag Race; and NBC's American Ninja Warrior. RHAP-Ups also houses international coverage for The Amazing Race and Big Brother. In 2017, full coverage of shows such as The Amazing Race and Big Brother Canada moved from the main RHAP feed to RHAP-Ups, as well as weekly Survivor podcasts that did not feature Rob, such as "RHAP B&B" and "Why ____ Lost".
In addition, RHAP-Ups includes podcasts about general reality TV and even RHAP reactions podcasts. Big Brother Canada 3 contestant Jordan Parhar hosted a podcast as a part of RHAP-Ups called Reality TV RHAPpy Hour, which covered a different reality TV topic every week. Mike Bloom, Jessica Liese, and Haley Strong did reaction podcasts after the debates of Miss Survivor 2015 and Mr. Survivor 2015; Bloom, Liese, and Akiva Wienerkur also recorded two podcasts summarizing the campaigns of various contenders for Survivor: Cambodia. RHAP-Ups served as the source of the first two rounds of the "So You Think You Can Podcast" contest, which served as a search for the new Big Brother live feed correspondent.
