Keoghan Wastes No Time

“[New Zealander] Phil Keoghan of The Amazing Race has scuba dived with a dog, swilled the blood of a cobra and attended a nudist wedding,” Los Angeles Times blogger Mary Forgione writes. “And he sometimes gets lost when he travels as host of the television show too (but not for the same reasons as the contestants do.) ‘I love travelling,’ Keoghan told the audience at a recent Los Angeles Times Travel Show. ‘My whole philosophy is ‘no opportunity wasted’ or NOW, which means living the biggest possible life you can.’ He shoots about 21 shows in 12 days, which roughs out to two days per show, logging 40,000 miles in 10 countries.” Keoghan, 45, was born in Lincoln. He lives in Los Angeles.
