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.”
about reality blurred
I’m Andy Dehnart, a writer who obsessively and critically covers reality TV, focusing on how it’s made and what it means.
I created reality blurred 20 years ago as a place to collect interesting links I found. Today, I review and recommend reality shows, documentaries, and nonfiction entertainment; analyze news and report from behind the scenes; and interview people who create and star in reality TV shows. You'll also find other people's insightful takes on reality TV in these pages, too.
I believe pop culture can both entertain and affect us, and so reality blurred's goal is to amplify the best and hold the worst accountable. In other words, I’m here to call it out when it sucks and celebrate it when it’s amazing. Let’s talk about it together!
