Phil from Amazing Race visits Montreal for NOW
Phil Keoghan, host of the wildly popular reality show “The Amazing Race” was in town Wednesday night at Indigo downtown to promote his book and reality TV show “No Opportunity Wasted”. Phil and the producers of NOW are currently on tour in Canada, looking for candidates for their upcoming show on CBC.
The lineup for Phil’s book signing was on the upper level of Indigo and went to the back of the store. Phil is a popular guy. When he stepped out to greet the crowd, he made a short speech, telling everyone about the philosophy behind NOW and encouraging everyone to take risks and live life to its fullest with no opportunity wasted. The producers of the show handed out application forms to people in line and encouraged people to apply online. They also had an area set up with a camera crew for people who were ready to apply right away and record an audition tape video. A few camera crews from the media such as ET Canada were milled around filming the event.
I was able to get Phil to sign a copy of his book for me. He seemed really nice and took the time to take photos with everyone. I can also report that he’s taller in person than he looks on TV. If you’re interested in learning more or applying to be on the show, check out the website for NOW
