Amanda at SingularityFanPages.com: Which “Expedition Unknown” episode has had the best fan reactions that you’ve seen, so far?
Josh Gates: The Peru episode looking for the Lost Incan City. I just love that show because it feels like a real trek, it feels like a real adventure off into the unknown. Like the last episode of the Viking Sun Stone, we worried will it be too geeky…but people have been so complimentary about it.
Amanda: Will you ever be able to convince Erin Ryder to be a part of “Expedition Unknown”? Fans really are asking for her, and Ryder has seen and favorited a lot of tweets about the subject the last few weeks.
Josh: I don’t know if she would be available or convinced. I would book Ryder in a heart beat. She is amazing, and I always say it - she is such a cool travel partner, she’s like my girl Friday (because Josh has referenced this before: I believe this is a reference to the Cary Grant film “His Girl Friday”) I miss being out in the world with her, but you know. New project, new show, different show, so I would say “never say never”. If it isn’t this, it’s something else. I would love to work with her anytime. We were a great team.
Amanda: Are you the long lost twin brother of Chris Pratt? (asked because quite a few fans have compared his looks and often sense of humor with Josh’s)
Josh: No, but I would love to be! That guy is doing pretty good right now! He, I don’t know what happened there - I loved him from way back, and now he’s got this whole amazing thing going on. He’s just become overnight America’s action star, and he’s awesome at it. I have high hopes for Jurassic World, I know there are Indiana Jones rumors floating around about him. He deserves it. He’s hilarious.
