Last night, Irving and I headed downtown to party with Amazing Race’s Phil Keoghan and some of the contestants on the show!
Phil rode his bike 3,000 miles across America to combat a midlife crisis and to raise money for the MS Foundation. And he made a movie about it along the way. The film is called ‘The Ride’. Tonight was the world premiere!
To celebrate, some Amazing Race alumni were there to kick off the press tour. Remember these guys!! It’s Kynt and Vixen!
They were on season 12 and will also be on the new season that starts up next week.
They let me hold one of the actual clue envelopes from the show!!
Since this was the premiere of the movie, they pulled out all the stops. I mean Tom Bergeron was there! Tom and I are from the same town.
I met him years ago at my local community access tv station! I wanted to talk to him and say hi, but he was whisked away quickly. Oh well.

Phil was so nice, he took pictures and chatted with all his fans.
I was so excited to meet Nat too! Nat and Kat won the past season of AR!
We saw her during the Rose Parade this year too!
The movie was so good. It was funny, entertaining and inspiring. Phil rode most of the way with his friend Ben. He sat behind us during the screening, which was fun.
We got little goodie bags too that contained some info on the MS Foundation and some of Phil’s new energy bars.
We kept saying how awesome it is that we keep finding these fun events. I keep forgetting we live here and these things are right at our fingertips. A movie isn’t just a movie anymore when you live in film-making country.
