Phil Keoghan The host of CBS's The Amazing Race, Keoghan has written the self-help book No Opportunity Wasted, which is also the name of the Discovery Channel show he produces.

ON WHY HE WROTE THE BOOK I've asked people, "If you were going to die in an hour, what would you regret not doing?" A lot of people just stare blankly. That scares me. I want to force people to create a contract with themselves to do the things they've always wanted to do.

ON HIS OWN DREAMS I'd like to climb Mount Cook, the tallest mountain in New Zealand. I'd also love to go to space. I just love the idea of being strapped to a rocket.

ON THE NEW SEASON OF RACE This season's race covered roughly 55,000 miles. I go to every single location the teams go to. It's so tight sometimes, I'm literally running up one way while they're coming up the other. People say to me, "You must go off sightseeing while they're racing." To be honest, I'm racing too.
