Jake’s Take Editorial: Farewell 2020 & New Beginnings!

By: Jacob Elyachar, jakes-take.com

It is hard to believe that 2020 is over! I want to thank you for staying with me all this year.

I want to give kudos and give a massive shoutout to all of my guests who took time out of their schedules to sit down with me for impeccable podcast conversations.  

Jake’s Take Top Viewed Videos Podcasts of 2020: 

Earlier in April, I began to create video episodes of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast. There were several memorable video podcasts of 2020. Fitness entrepreneur Joss Mooney spoke about his time on The Challenge and highlighted his companies — JM Transformations and Label in July. I caught up with Collabro’s Matt Pagan and Michael Auger for the first time in five years to talk about their first holiday album: Christmas is Here. 

I revealed my Top 50 America’s Got Talent (AGT) acts of all-time in May while sitting down with extensive interviews with AGT standouts Cristina Rae and Voices of Service. Kathryn Dunn detailed her journey from Big Brother houseguest to becoming the host of Conspire Away, B*thcs! With Kat Dunn in October. I also want to thank Sequester icon Kim Mattina for being the first person to sit down for a video podcast.

The Top Listened Episodes of the Jake’s Take Podcast: 

Of all my conversations from 2020, several podcast guests stand out to me. First, John Quale (Prince Poppycock) shared his AGT journey in June. I also got the exclusive opportunity to speak with AGT: Season 15 champion Brandon Leake hours after winning the show in September.

I also talked with three former Big Brother houseguests turned The Challenge competitors: Paulie Calafiore (in July) and power couple Chris “Swaggy C” Williams and Bayleigh Dayton (in May). During the early weeks of Big Brother 22, I spoke with show icon Rachel Reilly Villegas who shared her thoughts on the anniversary season and reminisced about her three times that she competed on The Amazing Race. Singer-songwriter Blake English and actress Christina Bianco rounded out the most listened audio editions of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast.

Big News! 

In August 2021, the Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar brand will turn 10-years-old. To commemorate this anniversary, Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar will launch its Patreon channel. There will be three levels: Listeners, Associate Producers, and Executive Producers. I will be creating exclusive content for the Jake’s Takers, including recaps of America’s Got Talent and The Masked Singer! 

For the first time in my podcasting career, I will be welcoming co-hosts to help me recap both of these fan-favorite shows. Patrons at both the Associate Producers and Executive Producers levels will have the first opportunity to co-host with me. All three groups will have the chance to be interviewed in my Patreon-only podcast: Meet the Community Podcast. Also, Patrons will have the ability to get my podcasts first up to 48 hours before everyone else! 

Keep an eye on the following link: patreon.com/jakestakewithjacobelyachar, as it will be live during the first few days of 2021!  I want to give a special shoutout to my friends: entrepreneur and water specialist Adam Tank, financial advisor Nick Raffin, teacher Mason Flynn, Angelcake Entertainment creator (and frequent Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast guest) Drew Angelman, and Challenge Mania co-host Scott Yager for taking time out of their schedules for looking over my plans and offering advice. They are impeccable people who I am so happy to call my friends.

I hope that you have the chance to continue to join me on my journey! 

May you and your loved ones have a safe and healthy 2021! 


  1. Go Jake! Love watching your success and journey.
