FLASHBACK: Preston & Casey’s relationship is ruined by yogurt 

Do you have a co-worker that you sit a less than 18 inches away from for hours every day? Yes. Well, do you also spend your entire day talking about every facet of your life – good and bad? Discussing every little detail for hours upon hours. Seeing every little movement that person makes, admiring every accessory they are wearing, catching every video they are watching, and examining everything that they eat?

There aren’t many people in this similar situation. But those who are, totally understand.

CaseyBoy and Preston Elliot split tight quarters behind the board. One day a few years ago, they had a dispute about Greek yogurt. It could have been a smile and move on moment. But this one lingered. Here’s how it started:

Every morning Preston eats a Chobani yogurt. Casey wanted his work BFF to give the brand Oikos a try.  Preston declined. The conversation got heated. It wasn’t really about yogurt, it was deeper; one friend is open to new suggestions, the other is comfortable in his ways. UPDATE: On January 29, 2024, Casey revealed that yogurt is a food that makes him pucker. Preston asked if that’s why the yogurt debate was so intense? When Casey replied yes, there was a moment of clarity. The therapy worked!

Relive the Great Yogurt Debate:

  • Enter the guest judge, Robert Irvine

    We called in the big dog to put this little tiff to rest. Chef extraordinaire, and lovely human being, Robert Irvine stepped into the studio to moderate the conversation. Neither of the party’s involved knew he was coming. The “Mystery Guest” got a good luck high five from our other guest that morning, comedian Frank Caliendo.


  • Are you #teamOikos or #teamChobani?

    Robert Irvine, whose was hosting a CW show that deals with conflict resolution. He was more then happy to get these two co-workers on his couch and talk out their feelings.

  • Is this the end?

    It went surprisingly well! The biggest revelation came when Robert asked Preston, “which do you love more: yogurt or Casey?”. Preston looked at his producer of 18 years and earnestly answered… the right answer... Casey. There were laughs, hugs and an affectionate yogurt truce.

    Special thanks to our friend, Robert Irvine, for hosting this surprise, open dialogue. It was great practice for “The Robert Irvine Show” where he helped people with much bigger problems every day on The CW.
