Because this is a comparison between two things so you need to use the comparative (more interesting) and not the superlative (most interesting).

Here are more examples:
An Audi Q7 is more expensive than a Ford Galaxy.
Skiing is much more interesting than watching German TV.
Jon Bon Jovi are even more popular than the Dutch King.

TOEIC listening, question-response: Could you tell me how to get to the Center Building?
