What's This?

Since 2003, CBS’s The Amazing Race has been continuously nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. Moreover, the show has won 10 Emmys since its first season in 2001.


While it was obvious for fans, The Amazing Race is once again nominated for an Emmy this year in the Outstanding Reality Competition Program category. However, the CBC show faces tough competition from NBC and ABC.

The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, American Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, and Top Chef have also been nominated for the category. But The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan’s recent podcast revealed why their show would probably bag the award again.

In the interview, Keoghan said, “The fact that we are still a relevant show is hugely satisfying. We strive each season to make the show as fresh and original as we can.” Fans can check out the whole podcast in the video below.

Over the years, Keoghan has been nominated thrice as Best Reality Show Host in the Critics Choice TV Awards. He was also nominated for the Gold Derby Awards in the Reality Host category.
