The "Wand-Off" is a popular segment of the RHAP Survivor podcast "The Wiggle Room." In it, Rob Cesternino and Josh Wigler review listener-submitted parody songs in order to select finalists for the "Final Wand-Off" at the end of the season.

DescriptionEdit

The "Wand-Off" began during coverage of Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers. Josh Wigler had previously used "The Wiggle Room" to highlight exclusive parody songs based on Survivor. Now, the baton turned to the listeners, as they were now given the opportunity to write, record, and send in their own songs. During every Wiggle Room podcast, the two review a selection of that week's submissions. Then, once the podcast is released, the listeners go to a poll to vote for their favorite song of the week. The artists who get voted through get to compete in the "Final Wand-Off" after the season, where they submit one final song for review. At the end of another popular vote, a winner is declared. Starting with Survivor: Ghost Island, the winner received a prize in a much sought-after "Wigler's Wombats" hat.

Though Rob has consistently vocalized the polarization of the "Wand-Off," it has received vocal praise from several Survivor alumni, including Ben Driebergen, Joe Mena, and Kellyn Bechtold.

Additionally, avid Rob Has a Podcast listener and patron Jason Curtis Rivera has been making terrific accompanying videos for all the Wand-Off submissions on the Rob Has a Music Video Department YouTube channel.
