Get ready Aaron & Joe! Phil's coming!

These are some highlights I found online for Phil's new show No opportunity Wasted aka NOW.

Keoghan arrives in Canada this week to interview potential participants on "NOW," as he calls it, a half-hour show that gives people the opportunity to complete a 72-hour, life-changing challenge that involves either conquering a lifelong fear or doing something to benefit others.

"It's exciting to be able to do it in Canada just because the psyche of Canadians is such that they're really going to get this," Keoghan said in a recent phone interview from Los Angeles. "Canadians love underdogs, they love people who are taking on the impossible and trying to better themselves."

Starting in St. John's on Tuesday, Keoghan will make stops in cities across Canada for eight days, ending up in Vancouver on May 16.

In each 30-minute episode, two challengers who don't know they've been chosen will be surprised by Keoghan and asked to take on a "NOW" challenge. The show clears their schedules with bosses, families and friends.

Then the two challengers, total strangers with a common goal, work to complete a series of time targets to complete their challenge.

A list of stops on his tour of Canada:

St. John's, N.L.: Tuesday, May 8, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Chapters, 70 Kenmount Road
