Emmy predix: Jeff Probst or Phil Keoghan to win best reality TV host?

Now that we know what episodes were submitted to Emmy judges by nominees for best host of a reality TV show, let's check in Emmy gurus Chris "Boomer" Beachum and Rob Licuria (AwardsHeaven) to see their predix. Also check out our predix in the races for best reality/competition show, the top drama series categories and the lead comedy series races. Also, best TV movie. Separately, Rob and Boomer offer up in-depth analysis of the contests over best guest drama actor, guest drama actress, guest comedy actor and guest comedy actress.

Below is the list of episodes entered. It's curious that Ryan Seacrest didn't submit the season finale of "American Idol." Instead, he opted for episode 30 (nine finalists perform). This category has only existed for two years, and "Survivor" emcee Jeff Probst has won both times. In the past, the prize was bestowed during the main telecast, but this year it will be handed out a week earlier at the Creative Arts ceremony.

Tom Bergeron, "Dancing with the Stars" ("Episode 1001")
Phil Keoghan, "The Amazing Race" ("Nanna is Kicking Your Butt")
Heidi Klum, "Project Runway" ("Sew Much Pressure")
Jeff Probst, "Survivor" ("This is the Man Test")
Ryan Seacrest, "American Idol" ("Episode 930/931A")

Dueling Emmy predix: 'Amazing Race' or 'American Idol' to win best reality competition show?

Amazing Race American Idol news-4

The Emmy race for best reality competition show is actually -- hooray -- competitive this year for the first time in a long while. Although our Emmy gurus Chris "Boomer" Beachum and Rob Licuria (AwardsHeaven) believe "The Amazing Race" will zoom ahead to victory for an eighth year in a row, I say "American Idol" will finally bag the gold. The reason: See my video riff. Also check out our predix in the top drama series categories and lead comedy series races. Also, best TV movie. Separately, Rob and Boomer offer up in-depth analysis of the contests over best guest drama actor, guest drama actress, guest comedy actor and guest comedy actress. In all cases, we're basing our predictions on the oomph of the sample episodes submitted to Emmy judges by the nominees.
