...Phil Keoghan, host/activist
After 14 season of the award-winning The Amazing Race, its host (and native New Zealander) Phil Keoghan has traveled to practically ever corner of the globe, experiencing different cultures, peoples, and (sometimes most frighteningly) cuisines.
This Spring, his focus is on the United States as he crosses this great land of ours on his trusty Specialized Transition. You read that right. He is biking from Los Angeles to New York in just over 40 days to raise awareness for the National MS Society, among other things.
I was lucky enough to catch up with him at one of his pits stops in my very own hometown to talk a little about the trip, the National MS Society, and (naturally) The Amazing Race.
TheTwoCents: What is the purpose of this great bike ride across the country, besides having the time of your life of course?
