He may host one of the hottest reality shows Down Under, but according to The Amazing Race Australia host Beau Ryan, his harshest critic comes in the form of his beloved eight-year-old daughter, Remi.

“My daughter’s never really watched it, I’m gonna be honest,” Beau tells New Idea, adding, “She’s more of a Masked Singer girl – she thinks I’m boring!”

“She loves The Masked Singer, she asked me last week when I’m going to do it and I told her they asked me on the first season, but I was away filming The Amazing Race. “I still kick myself for that!”

He continued, “But my wife said Remi loves the all-girl team on The Amazing Race, she always has. She’s a big fan of Flick and Gabby this season.

“She’s at that age now where a lot of her friends love it, but I’d be lying if I said she actually loves it, not because I’m in it, but because she loves the characters. She doesn’t like the fact I’m away for a long period of time, but she loves the contestants. She loves seeing people go through all different sorts of tasks.”

Despite many wishing they could be in the former footy player’s shoes when it comes to travelling the world for a career, Beau insists there’s no better feeling than coming home to his wife, Kara, and kids Remi and Jesse after an exhausting season of racing around the globe.

“When I get home the kids are allowed to stay up til 11 pm and obviously the first thing I do is embrace them and then we spend the next couple of hours unpacking little gifts I get for them from each country,” he revealed.

“They’re excited to have me back and it’s an amazing feeling to be home, but yeah, but I don’t really tell too many stories, because my wife doesn’t really care about my stories!” he laughs.

“She doesn’t want to hear about it, she prefers to watch everything so it’s nice we get to relive it together.”

Asked what his favourite part of hosting The Amazing Race is, Beau revealed that it’s the opportunity to experience a myriad of cultures and show Aussies that there’s an abundance of beauty across the pond.

“Seeing the people and what the cultures represent and seeing our contestants immersed in that, it’s just great,” he mused.

“Our contestants Cathy and Chase, the lawyer cousins, they can speak six languages which obviously is an advantage, but then again, they haven’t been to many of the countries that were visited. Then there’s Paco and Mori, they didn’t know about Morocco. People are unsettled, but that’s all part of the show.”

“You have to really be able to adapt and you don’t really have time to worry about your preconceived ideas of what you think the country is like, because we’ve got a race on our hands.”
