For Your Emmy Consideration: Phil Keoghan
The eyebrow says it all.
The Amazing Race‘s Phil Keoghan has been an amazing host and the only one suited for the series. An adventurer himself, Keoghan loves being part of a worldwide adventure and enjoys seeing regular everyday Americans doing the same.
Over the past 16 seasons, Keoghan has become one of the best parts of the series, adding humor and levity when needed, but being compassionate and serious as the tension of the competition wears on the teams.
Keoghan’s willingness to poke fun at himself, like standing in just his underwear in the snow to demonstrate the upcoming task or diving into the sea himself to explain the rules, is a great example of how much he enjoys what he does.
When needed, he understands the contestants, helps comfort them or laughs right along with them.
And as the master of ceremonies, no one explains tasks and challenges with as much fun as he does.
While The Amazing Race has enjoyed deserving annual wins at the Emmys, it is time its equally deserving host is recognized as well.
