Phil Keoghan got his big break in front of the camera hosting the New Zealand series Spot On when he auditioned while on an apprentice program in cinematography, this program was followed by 3.45 Live. Now in his seventh season hosting The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan has worked all over the world as a cameraman, producer and host. Since the age of 19, he has hosted more than 1,000 program episodes, including his own internationally distributed series Keoghan's Heroes, which profiles famous thrill-seekers around the world.
Phil is currently executive - producing and hosting a new series for the Discovery Channel called No Opportunity Wasted, which gives people from all over the United States the chance to live their dreams. Phil has also penned a book by the same name, which he hopes will encourage people to write and follow their 'List for Life'. Phil's book debuted at #2 in New Zealand and #10 in Australia. Oprah Winfrey has featured Phil on several occasions.
No Opportunity Wasted is inspired by Phil's own near-death experience as a 19 year old. Since that day he has been following his own list, which was originally written on the back of a brown paper bag and is now a constant, changing, work in progress.
