Jordan Kalish is the co-host of the weekly "This Week in Survivor History" segment.

Rob Has a PodcastEdit


Kalish's "This Week in Survivor History" segment began as a blog posted during Survivor: Cagayan. It took a look at events that happened during the week of the most recently aired episode in past Survivor seasons. Beginning on March 20, 2014,[1] Kalish's blog post transitioned to a podcast a segment between the recap and voicemails section on the weekly Survivor podcast. Beginning in the middle of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur, "This Week in Survivor History" moved to the weekly exit interview podcast. Starting with Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, the segment took on a different format, where Kalish would pose trivia questions to Rob about episodes that premiered during that week in seasons past. Kalish made a rare non-"TWiSH" appearance as a "Game Changer Expert" in the lead up to Survivor: Game Changers, talking about the 11 things he loves about contestant Tony Vlachos.[2]

Other ShowsEdit

Kalish blogged for The Celebrity Apprentice during the 2012 edition, making appearances on podcasts on April 30[3] and May 12[4], as well as April 7, 2013 after an episode of the 2013 All-Stars edition.[5]

Reality TV RHAP-UpsEdit

Kalish appeared on the "Rise and Fall" series, discussing the short-lived CBS reality show Pirate Master.[6]
