O Melhor do Brasil left Saturday nights for Sunday afternoons to cover up the hole left by Gugu Liberato's program, which ended a week earlier than scheduled due to the Liberato's departure from Rede Record, and by program Tudo é Possível, when its last broadcast happened on December 2012. The program ended up having its name changed to Hora do Faro in 2014.[5] O Melhor do Brasil won Faro the Troféu Imprensa for five consecutive years in the category "Best TV Presenter or Animator". On September 27, 2015, Rodrigo became the godfather of singer Felipe Araújo, brother of late sertanejo universitário singer Cristiano Araújo.[6][7] Rodrigo is an exclusive artist of RecordTV and his current contract lasts until 2017.[8]
