  • The Amazing Race- Season 27- ABOUT THE SHOW

    The Amazing Race 27 is the upcoming twenty-seventh installment of the reality television show The Amazing Race. It will feature eleven teams of two in a race around the world for a US $1 million grand prize. The season will be broadcast on CBS and is scheduled to premiere on September 25, 2015.

    Production and filming

    The 27th season of The Amazing Race started filming on June 22, 2015, at picturesque Venice Beach in Los Angeles.

    As was done with The Amazing Race 25, the show's Twitter page announced this season began filming on June 22, 2015 at Venice Beach in Los Angeles with an open start, and invited fans to join them as they saw the new teams off. The open start revealed teams would be heading to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    The cast include TMZ correspondents Kelly Berning and Shevonne Sullivan, reporters Kelsey Gerckens and Joey Buttitta from KEYT-TV, and former America's Best Dance Crew contestants Ernest "E-Knock" Phillips and Jayjion "Jin Lao" Greer.

    About the Host

    An Emmy award winning producer and host of The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan, has experienced a life full of travel and adventure. He started traveling around the world at the age of two and has been globetrotting ever since. Serving as host and a producer of CBS’s multi Emmy Award-winning reality series, THE AMAZING RACE, Keoghan continues to travel at a pace few could match.

    After surviving a near death experience at the age of 19, where he found himself lost at 120 feet inside a 22,000 ton ship wreck, Keoghan was prompted to write a list of More...things to do before he died. For more than 20 years, he has lived this, Life List, in front of a TV camera working in more than 100 countries as an actor, author, television host, producer, and cameraman.

    Some of his adventures include having a five star meal on top of an erupting volcano; changing a light bulb on top of Verazano bridge; breaking an unofficial bungy jumping record with eight others; swimming from Asia to Europe across the Bosporus; and putting a golf ball across Scotland. Most recently, he rode his bike from Los Angeles to New York City to help raise awareness for the National MS Society. Keoghan filmed the grueling 3,500 mile adventure and turned it into a documentary film titled THE RIDE.

    Phil’s challenging Life List evolved into his life philosophy and the title of his best selling book, No Opportunity Wasted, NOW, (Eight ways to create a list for the life you want). The book was later developed into an award winning television series produced in the US, Canada and New Zealand.

    With a passion to help others get the most out of life, Keoghan is a regular motivational speaker at colleges and major corporations throughout North and South America, Asia, New Zealand and Australia.

    Phil lives in Los Angeles, Calif. with his wife and daughter. His birthday is May 31.
