As the host of Carnival Eats, Noah Cappe knows carnivals like the rest of us know our own backyards. But this world-travelling, funnel cake-funnelling host still has a few carnivals, fairs and festivals on his bucket list.
“For the show, we’ve focused mostly on North America,” he says. “We’ve covered so much ground and we’ve gone to most places, [but] there’s still a few we haven’t done. We haven’t gone to Las Vegas – a carnival in Vegas would be wild.”
But Sin City’s (surely) flashy deep-fryers aren’t the only ones Noah wants to sample from. The Toronto native would love it if the show ventured a little further, putting Alaska, the Yukon and Hawaii on his Carnival Eats bucket list.
“I’d love to see Carnival Eats in Hawaii,” he says, and not just because he’d get a free vacation there. “People want to see how to use pineapple in different ways,” he says.
