No Lying On The Beach When Phil Keoghan’s On Vacation

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For 11 season, Phil Keoghan has circled the globe as the host of The Amazing Race, so you think he’d want to just chill when he’s on vacation.

Not on your life.

Keoghan loves to take his family to his home on the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand, but they don’t really ever relax.

Says Keoghan: “We have our boat and go wakeboarding and diving, tubing, fishing – we’re playing sports or on the motorcycles. I wouldn’t say we ever just lounge around.”

Keoghan returns to New Zealand at least 12 times a year – not counting stops with the Race – and says the long plane ride is worth it.

Although you won’t find him getting a tan, Keoghan’s second favorite vacation spot is the tropical island of Fiji where, he admits, he did take a short breather between numerous diving excursions.

The Amazing Race: All Stars premieres Sunday (Feb. 18) on CBS.
