IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: PHIL KEOGHAN - TELEVISION PERSONALITY

PhilKeoghan2 I am not a big fan of most reality television shows, but one big exception is CBS' The Amazing Race. I watch it religiously with my kids every Sunday night and it's a fun way for us to see the world from our living room.

One of the ingredients that makes the show a hit is Phil Keoghan, the show's New Zealand-born host. Phil has won six Emmys for his television work and is an adventurer in his personal life. He holds the world record for bungee jumping, has gone diving in the world's longest underwater caves and has dined at the top of an erupting volcano.
