Phil Keoghan, host of “The Amazing Race,” was back on my show this afternoon to talk about season nine. With the contestants headed for Moscow tonight, we talked about the challenges of being in a country where you can’t even read the signs because the alphabet’s different. We also discussed how hard it was for Phil to stay ahead of the teams racing from location to location, how size matters, and why — so often on the race — teams are allowed to catch up and bunch up at airports and other venues.
