Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan was finally nominated for an Emmy, and he has characteristic good humor about it. He told the AP that last year, “I missed out and I felt like the orphan in the production,” but “I was relieved that I wasn’t up there, to be honest with you, because I don’t think it worked out as well as anybody wanted,” he said of the reality hosts hosting. This year, he says, “I’m in good company and I feel honored to be part of the group. Obviously it’s a lot better to be part of it than not, you know. I could be home still scraping my wall, right? In my underpants.”
Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive
Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
