Phil Keoghan’s new Discovery series No Opportunity Wasted debuts Sunday.
In between racing around the world, Philiminiating people, and reciting lines such as, “A detour is a choice between two tasks, each with it’s own pros and cons,” Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan created and hosted a new Discovery Channel reality series.

No Opportunity Wasted debuts on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, and gives people 72 hours and $3,000 to live one of their dreams. Phil tells Aaron Barnhart about the show and previews some of the dreams lived out, including “a Jewish rapper who wants to make a music video for his mother.” One that they were unable to fulfill, however, “was a guy who wanted to climb a Mayan pyramid in high heels dressed in drag.”
