'Amazing Race' Host Phil Keoghan Has Some Serious Baggage, Will Sell It on HSN

November 3, 2011 at 4:40 PM | by | Comments (0)

Do you know how to tell when a celebrity's career is slowly going down the drain? When they develop of clothing line or a perfume. That's a big warning sign. Licensing your name is also worse (ah hem Donald Trump mattresses), so when we heard that Amazing Race's host Phil Keoghan is hawking his own luggage line, we got scared for him and, as it turns out, rightly so because he's about to start selling it on the Home Shopping Network (HSN).

The collection is called "Phil Keoghan NOW" and Phil will apparently be sharing his ďtips and tricksĒ on HSN on November 11th at 2 AM, 1 PM and 8 PM EST and November 12th at 9 AM and 6 PM EST. Both the 20" spinner luggage and the packing system are $129.95 each, while his packing system is $79.95. We'd hope, however, that any serious travelers out on the road as often as Phil (or even not nearly as often) would have already found a sturdy, stylish case right for them. Hey, even Target has some nice stuff in its travel aisles these days Victorinox, for example).

Follow The History Channel's New Travel Show 'Around the World in 80 Ways'

November 2, 2011 at 9:30 AM | by | Comments (0)

What would you say if we told you that the History Channel—not the Travel Channel— has an excellent new reality travel TV show? We know, it's weird, especially considering that flipping channels usually finishes with some History Channel documentary on the weapons of World War I or how the NYC subway was constructed.

This season, however, the History Channel has introduced Around the World in 80 Ways, starring Survivor and Amazing Race alum "Boston Rob" and monster truck driver Dennis Anderson. Yeah, we don't give a crap about Boston Rob either, but we do give a crap about airplanes, trains, boats, cars, rickshaws, camels and hot air balloons.

The top finishers were in attendance, including first-place sisters Jen and Kisha Hoffman, second-place Globetrotters and hilarious pals Flight Time and Big Easy, third-place father-daughter team Gary and Mallory Ervin, and four-place BFFs Zev Glassenberg and Justin Kanew. For once, we can see them all cleaned up and in real clothes.

The 'Amazing Race' Has Its Own Limited-Edition Snapple Iced Tea

April 26, 2011 at 9:51 AM | by | Comment (1)

While the all-stars of this season's Amazing Race have tackled a ton of crazy challenges thus far, a memorable one was the tea-tasting task in India. Early in the leg of the race, teams sipped a hot mango tea. Later they had to taste their way through hundreds of teas to match the original mango cuppa.

The tea challenge actually had two purposes: to showcase India's more than 2,000-year-old traditional beverage and to highlight Snapple's new India-influenced tea. If you can't make it to India to partake in a tea service, Snapple has unveiled its new papaya-mango "Amazing Race" tea.

In the last episode of The Amazing Race, the cowboys started in last place, but ended up making the cut, as did the pink and black attack, who gave us a headache with their nonstop bickering.

In the last episode of The Amazing Race, things weren't looking so good for the cowboys. An inept travel agent gave them on the wrong flight, which put them in the back of the pack. But the brothers managed to hustle and make the cut. The Globetrotters made an impressive first-place win, considering they came in last in the previous leg. Unfortunately, the Chinese dad-daughter duo had to go home. Six teams are left. Who will get sent packing next?

'Amazing Race' to Go Down Under for Its First Aussie Show

Where: Australia
April 12, 2011 at 8:39 AM | by | Comments (0)

Looks like we're not the only ones who heart The Amazing Race. Australia is gearing up for its first season of the show. More than 40,000 aspiring racers applied to run Amazing Race Australia, which is supposed to air next month.

Unfortunately, those Down Under don't get Phil as a host. But some might argue that they get someone better: True Blood's vamp-blood-drinkin' werewolf Grant Bowler. Though like Phil, the Australia-raised host does have New Zealand ties; Bowler was born there.

In the last episode of The Amazing Race, teams had a seemingly impossible task of trying to scour hundreds of cups of tea in search of a flavored cup they unknowingly tasted beforehand. It was painful to watch son Luke, who had a breakdown, and we're guessing a bladder breakdown, too, after spending forever sipping cup after cup unsuccessfully. The Globetrotters' spilled paint during a challenge almost gave the mom-son team time to catch up, but ultimately mom and son were sent packing. However, another parent-child pair, Ms. Kentucky and her dad, snagged first place. Seven teams remain. Who will get kicked off next?

In the last episode of The Amazing Race, the cowboys snagged first place after conquering a hard larger-than-life dino puzzle. But a nasty double U-turn made things crazy for the other racers. Two teams opted not to U-turn anyone, but the pink and black attack, who knew they had a 30-minute penalty coming up for taking the wrong plane, weren't so kind.

The goths U-turned the cheerleaders, who in turn U-turned the Globetrotters. Usually the kiss of death, the U-turn couldn't foil the Globetrotters' moves, as the ballers were safe, but the cheerleaders weren't so lucky and were eliminated. Eight teams remain. Who's the next to go home?
