Two-time reality host nominee Phil Keoghan of seven-time Emmy winner “The Amazing Race” went two-for-two in locale on Emmy noms morning. “It’s the second year I’ve been in my garage [when I got the call],” he reminisced. “Last year, I was in my underwear and this year, I was dressed!” Keoghan, who was catching a flight from LAX to France to ride along the Tour de France route with his family, discussed the advantage his reality competition series had over others. “We never repeat ourselves.
