Phil Keoghan to Host New Reality Show

by at . Comments

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.

Said Keoghan:

"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.
