"No, 'cause A. I don't make that series anymore, left that network years ago," he quipped of his former Travel Channel series, which ended in 2012. He has starred on Parts Unknown for CNN for the past four years. "And B. There's nothing they're gonna let you see in North Korea. It's a very unpleasant government."

Parts Unknown will compete for an Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series or Special on September 17; it could be the series' fifth consecutive win in the category.
