YOU GRADE IT
The Philiminaterview

Yeah, it happened a second time.

It's you.

It must be me.

It must be you. You're a curse. Well, it was a very good party, we had a good time.

It was a great party, I thought. And I thought that kit -- somebody gave me one of the, uh...

The goodie bags!

The goodie bag. I thought it was amazing.

Isn't it cute? They work hard on those things. They've been making those since the first one.

I am amazed, I am amazed at how much work they put in.

I know. It was so cute. I love those things.

And you're -- I'm figuring that you are the first person to come up with the whole "Philimination" thing, right?

I don't know. I don't know, maybe.

I'm not sure, but I know that you must be one of the first to use it.

I think we popularized it, maybe.

Maybe. I'm not sure if it came out of, like, Season One, with Frank, and...anyway, the other day, the publicist took me in to the CBS store in New York, and they said, "Oh, you should check out the new Amazing Race merchandise. It's like the first time we've ever had, you know, Amazing Race swag.

We heard!

Right. And so I go over, and the woman goes, "Oh, my God, you're the guy from The Amazing Race -- can you sign this hat?" And I said, "Sure, sure," and then she says, "You should check out the t-shirt, check out the t-shirt!" So I look at the t-shirt, and it says, "Amazing Race: You've Been Philiminated" on the t-shirt.

Ohhhhh.

They're selling them.

Ohh, jeez.

And! And so then the woman says to me..."Oh, by the way, I'll give you a 20 percent discount if you want to buy one."

[cackle]

I said, "Oh -- oh thank you!"

That's awesome.

"That's great, thank you." I'm like...I know I'm in New York, man. She just asked me for an autograph, and she's like, "I love the show," and then she's going to...cut me a 20 percent discount.

"We'll cut you a 20 percent discount on your very own shirt!"

Well, it's not bad, it's kind of fun. I got a new one the other day. Somebody sent me a T-shirt made up, it said, "Phil Factor." A play on "Fear Factor." I thought that was a fun one.

Yeah, absolutely. Well, we had a good time. Mirna and I shared a piece of cake with your face on it, so.

Oh, you got -- you know what happened? What happened was, one of the guys at CBS -- internally, at CBS, there's huge fans of The Amazing Race. And there's one guy there that always used to help us out, and he worked on The Early Show. And he's such a huge, huge fan, so he got that cake made, like at a special place. And it was at the [CBS] party, and I think people were too scared to cut into the cake because of the photo, and no one ate it. And I was the last one to leave that party, because I was talking to press and everything, so someone said, "Well, what are we going to do with the cake?", and I said, "Well, I'm going to go over to the TARcon party, so I'll take it over, because at least they'll appreciate it, and hopefully, somebody over there will eat it." So it was eaten?
