In this awesome interview the fan site got to do with Josh at the San Diego Travel & Adventure Show this past month, Josh chats about looking for new locations for “Expedition Unknown”, what happened with Destination Dinner, the fans, going to Canada, and lots of fun topics! Watch the whole video interview by clicking HERE. Otherwise, some fun sound bytes are transcribed below.
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.
