Phil Keoghan Net Worth $12 Million

Phil Keoghan was born in New Zealand, but lived in Antigua and Canada due to his father’s work commitments. His family returned to New Zealand where he went to high school and after matriculation later studied at St Andrew’s College, Christchurch. Keoghan has a brother named Andrew Keoghan, a former television reporter and successful jazz musician, and Ruth Keoghan Cooper, the life consultant.

Phil completed his TV cameraman apprenticeship at the age of 19, and then when he was 23 he moved to the United States after his show “Keoghan’s Heroes” was picked up by a US network. Keoghan initially auditioned for a host of “Survivor”, and although was on a shortlist, the CBS chose Jeff Probst instead, but offered Keoghan the job as a host of “The Amazing Race”, which he accepted. The series started airing in 2001, and is still running after 330 episodes, while Phil also has a long-term contract with CBS that allows him to develop other shows as well. “The Amazing Race” follows the story of multiple teams that are racing around the globe for $1,000,000 to “unusual” locations. The show’s popularity helped Keoghan to increase his net worth significantly, as he reportedly receives $100,000 per episode.

Phil hosted 11 episodes of “No Opportunity Wasted” in 2004, and has appeared in such shows as “The Tony Danza Show” (2005-2006), “The Bonnie Hunt Show” (2008-2010), and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” (2005-2012). He also directed “The Ride” (2011) and “Phil Rides Across America” (2012), produced 26 episodes of “Human Edge” (2001), and 245 episodes of “The Amazing Race” since 2005, all of which have contributed steadily to his rising net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Phil Keoghan married Louise Rodrigues in the late ‘80s and has a daughter with her named Elle Keoghan, born in 1995. They currently live in Los Angeles, California but also have two houses in New Zealand. Keoghan is an avid cyclist and came across information about a New Zealand cyclist named Harry Watson who formed a team which competed at the 1928 Tour de France. Then, he decided to celebrate Watson’s legacy and completed the same as his compatriot, also using the same type of gear-less bicycle.

Quotes

#Quote
1[Who found the luxurious experience rather deflating]: Because if I had made it' I would be having that every day. That's when I knew that I hadn't made it.
2[on a stormy weather trek]: Engines on fire are scary. Emergency landings, after electrical fires in the galley, that's not pleasant. Smoke in the fuselage is not good [but] I'm not so much worried about the plane falling to bits, just weather. I don't like bad weather, it makes things more... challenging.
3Inevitably you're going to be delayed somewhere. Always have a book. Always have a movie. Always have a notebook. And then always have a sense of humour.
4[on his charity]: The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is sponsoring nine of the major rides I am doing, I have been involved with the MS chapter here in California, and I have participated in their rides over the last four years.
5'Amazing Race' is, without a doubt, the toughest hosting assignment I've ever had in my career; it's certainly been the most rewarding,
6[on the skill of being a compelling host get overlooked]: If I can make it look easy, that means I'm doing my job properly, but the easier I make it look, that is a reflection on the preparation we've done up front.
7[When he was familiar with his overwhelming challenges]: This is the most daunting physical thing I have ever attempted.
8[When he plans to average 100 miles per days by bike]: Riding a bicycle is about getting back to basics. It's good for the waistline and it's good for the wallet, is what I'm saying.
9[If he wanted to see the change on his own series]: I don't think we'd ever want to do that. ... There are always ways to make something better and stronger, but I don't think that's the show's strength.
