Travel to New Zealand
“I’ve always liked Phil Keoghan as host of The Amazing Race,” Orlando Sentinel television reviewer Hal Boedeker professes. “I didn’t realize he was from New Zealand, but there he was on The Late Late Show, promoting his country after the devastating earthquake in Christchurch. He did a fantastic job. He was preparing to travel to his homeland and has filmed public-service announcements urging people in the US to donate to the New Zealand Red Cross. ‘More than that the message that I really want to communicate … is … people need to travel to New Zealand,’ Keoghan said. ‘The rest of New Zealand is open for business, and we need to communicate that, because in all seriousness, it could absolutely collapse the economy if people just stop coming to the country … It’s the best thing that people can do.’ Keoghan was born in Lincoln and attended St Andrew’s College.
