The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan recently participated in CBS’s Tweet Week. He tweeted live during the last episode of the show. The funny host revealed some insider information about the show, who is getting on his nerves, and hinted at who might win this season.
When asked what would happen if teams arrived at the pit stop before him, Phil replied, “Stress and mayhem. It’s what keeps me up at night.” His favorite part of being a host is “Watching people pushed outside their comfort zone. Being a part of their life changing experience.” His favorite destinations for great content is India, and from a personal perspective is Italy for food, wine, history and culture.
Phil also revealed some interesting behind the scenes information. “It takes approximately 23 days to run the race from start to finish. Eliminated teams go to Sequestaville to wait till the race is over.” As for injuries, “We pride ourselves in keeping the teams safe and the biggest injury would be bruised egos.”
Who is Phil’s favorite racing team? “Where would I begin? Too many favs to choose. The key is the mix of the cast.” However, when it comes to this current season, Phil thinks that the Cowboys are the team to beat, but foreshadowed that they might self-destruct. “The cowboys are the strongest team. The question is will they make anymore unforced errors?”
Phil is such an experienced world-traveler with a wry sense of humor. It makes many wonder if he would ever run the race himself. Phil revealed, “I have no desire to be a contestant on the Amazing Race. This is a show I definitely like to watch.”
