'Amazing Race' host Phil Keoghan's top 10 destinations

By Melonyce McAfee, CNN
Updated 1618 GMT (0018 HKT) December 10, 2015

(CNN)Phil Keoghan left his birthplace, New Zealand, at age 3 and has been traveling the world ever since.
Keoghan's parents -- Dad was an agricultural scientist, and Mom was a music teacher -- instilled in him a wanderlust and appreciation for different cultures as his father's career led the family to live internationally in places like the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Barbuda.

"It gave me a curiosity in meeting people, interesting people, and that ultimately has determined how I've traveled, because what I've realized is, it doesn't matter where you go in the world, it doesn't matter where you are but who you're there with," Keoghan said.

To date, Keoghan has traveled to well over 100 countries, both to satisfy his own curiosity and as host of the long-running travel adventure game show "The Amazing Race," which wraps up season 27 on Friday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

"The Amazing Race" has taken him across the globe, from Monaco to Macau, and keeps him on the road much of the year. His travel reached a peak 47,000 miles in 2004, and he averages a quarter-million miles annually.

Keoghan, 48, said he enjoys roughing it more than a pampered travel experience. "I love being in a place where you see life happening around you.

"My preference is much more of the rustic, off-the-beaten-path travel experience or activity for the teams, just because I love the 'fish out of water' aspect of 'Amazing Race,' " he said.

Keoghan took time before embarking on yet another globetrot to share his 10 favorite destinations around the world with CNN.

Super Bowl 50: Ryan Reynolds, Liam Hemsworth Among Hollywood A-Listers Attending Game Day


by Brian Porreca

2/4/2016 9:00am PST

With the Denver Broncos facing off against the Carolina Panthers outside San Francisco on Feb. 7, the Bay Area is going to be packed to the wharf with famous fans — hello Jay Leno and Phil Keoghan — and crowded parties.


This story first appeared in the Feb. 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Super Bowl 50 has cast its headliners — the Denver Broncos will play the Carolina Panthers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Feb. 7 — and neither is a typical Hollywood-type team. But that won't keep Tinseltown names away from the big game, including Ryan Reynolds, Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Jay Leno and Paramount vice chair Rob Moore. Reynolds will pass out chimichangas to promote Deadpool, Hemsworth and Goldblum will tackle promotional responsibilities on behalf of their upcoming Independence Day: Resurgence, and Leno jets north to San Francisco to get back in the hosting chair as emcee of the annual charity event Big Game Big Give.

As for Moore, one of Hollywood's most committed Super Bowl loyalists, football remains front and center, and he'll be rooting for quar­terback Cam Newton and his Panthers. This year marks Moore's 13th Super Bowl trip since 2002, while The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan will make his Super Bowl debut. "I've always wanted to go, but I know how hard it is to get tickets, so I've never had the courage to ask. I can't believe that I have a ticket," he says. "Thank you, Leslie Moonves!" With the game airing on CBS, Moonves, the president and CEO of CBS Corp., will attend along with his wife, Julie Chen.

Amazing Race host shows off Nelson


TASHA LEOV

 Last updated 15:42, March 30 2016

The Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan at Tekapo, he will be in Nelson with film crews next Saturday.


 
The Amazing Race host and renowned Kiwi Phil Keoghan will soon be in the region as part of a new series to show Nelson off to the world.

Keoghan brings with him a film crew that will fly a drone around for a new series capturing New Zealand from above. He will also be on the finish line of GODzone to chat with Richie McCaw about the race.

Nelson Tasman Tourism international marketing manager Gisela Purcell said having Keoghan come to the region was a coup.

"He's a great Kiwi personality who has huge international recognition and it gives us outstanding exposure."

Footage captured from the drone will go towards a series to be the New Zealand equivalent of an American show, "Aerial America", which airs on the Smithsonian channel.

The show will show uninterrupted, narrated footage of New Zealand.

The drone will be filming the Centre of New Zealand and the Lord Rutherford Memorial in Brightwater. It will also feature two Nelson College rugby teams training at the Botanic Gardens, symbolising the first ever rugby match that was held in New Zealand.

Nelson College director of community relations Mark Vinsen said the school was a rugby pioneer in New Zealand.

"On May 14th 1870, Nelson College played against Nelson Club in the first game of Rugby in New Zealand.  So we have been around a wee while," he said.

Vinsen said he was unsure what to expect but wanted the boys to be able to have some fun.

"It's a very cool opportunity, it will be a great thing. I don't know what to expect. We'll just have the boys have a kick around and have some fun," he said.

Purcell said she was excited because it was a good way to show off what Nelson had to offer.

"It's one way of showing the things you can do. It's really exciting," she said.

Keoghan and his crew will be here for a short stay, arriving on April 9 to film and leaving on April 10.

Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan films show in Christchurch


by ALICE CANNET

 Last updated 16:10, April 8 2016
 


Kiwi Amazing Race television star Phil Keoghan is in Christchurch filming a show about interesting Kiwis.

On Friday, Keoghan interviewed graffiti artist Wongi Wilson, a.k.a Freak, in the central city. Wilson is exhibited at Spectrum.

Lincoln-born Keoghan said he was working on two new projects - one about interesting Kiwis and an aerial show on the country's landscapes.

Phil is about to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Contribution to Film/TV from the Riverside International Film Festival. The festival runs from May 6-15 and as best I can tell, he will receive it at the Awards ceremony on the last day. So, I conclude TAR 29 filming won't start before May 15.

Traveling around the world for 25 sleep-deprived days would satisfy the appetite of most intrepid travelers, but Phil Keoghan host of “The Amazing Race”, decided he wanted to take on the biggest physically and mental challenge of his life … riding his bike coast to coast across America.

In March 2009 Phil left his home in Los Angeles with his wingman Ben, best friend Scott, a former California Highway Patrolman, and his dad as the driver of the support vehicle.   He set out to pedal 3500 miles to New York in just 40 days.

Phil’s journey is not just about the huge physical and mental challenge he faced, but also about the wonderful friendships between Phil and his traveling companions.

Along the way we encounter brave individuals who are coping with the crippling MS disease, and experience the warmth and generosity of Americans who opened their homes and hearts to Phil and his crew.

Since it’s release in 2011 on the Showtime Network, a sell out theatrical tour in 22 markets around the United States and SVOD distribution, The Ride has generated over 1 million dollars with 100% of the proceeds going to the MS Society.

‘Amazing Race’ host at Louisville film festival


 Kirby Adams  , @kirbylouisville 9:50 a.m. EDT October 3, 2016


“The Amazing Race” host Phil Keoghan will introduce his critically acclaimed documentary “Le Ride” at the 8th Annual Louisville International Festival of Film Thursday, Oct. 13, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Kentucky Science Center, 727 W. Main St.

Keoghan’s documentary chronicles the backbreaking journey of four courageous underdogs from New Zealand and Australia who joined forces in 1928 to compete in what is considered by many to be the toughest sporting event in the world.

The film is the opening feature of the three-day festival that runs Thursday, Oct. 13-Saturday, Oct. 15.

“Le Ride” follows Keoghan and his friend Ben Cornell as they attempt to recreate the original route of the 1928 Tour de France. Averaging 150 miles a day for 26 days, the duo traverses both the unforgiving mountains of the Pyrenees and the Alps on original vintage steel racing bikes with no gears and marginal brakes.

Following the screening, Keoghan will lead a Q&A session.

Found this "old" T&L interview with Phil conducted on the morning of TAR 3's final episode.  Fire-up the "Wayback Machine" and see what Phil was thinking back then.  Even his picture suggests a different time.  :funny:

Is it just me, or do Stan and Hayley in American dad reading the clue wrong and doing something not part of the race remind you of John and Jessica in Indonesia (S22)?

Thought of that, too. Somebody who worked on this episode is obviously a pretty big TAR fan. It was good.

Probably the only time we'll ever get to hear Phil raise his voice to a team - "What the hell are you doing?! I don't get to go home until somebody wins!"
