Phil Keoghan to Host New Reality Show
The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan is expanding his reality TV resume.
The New Zealand native will host and produce an untitled series that follows the 2010-11 Velux 5 Oceans race. In this contest, skippers must single-handedly sail 30,000 miles to win; they'll often film themselves at sea trying to do so.
As the longest-running around-the-world yacht race in the world, this edition begins on October 17 in France. It takes place every four years.
"Extreme adventure sports have been captured many times, but what makes this race so unique is the world's best sailors will take on the unforgiving oceans alone. This is a fantastic opportunity to share a physical and mental challenge that will test competitors beyond what seems humanly possible and at the same time highlight the planet's awe-inspiring oceans."
Your move, Jeff Probst.
