It's an Explosive Finale as Northwestern Gets Her Revenge on 'Deadliest Catch' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 27th 2011 3:46AM
'Deadliest Catch' season finaleAfter a successful season on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tue., 9PM ET on Discovery), there was only one order of business left for Captain Sig Hansen of the Northwestern. He remembers the Chinese lanterns that freaked him out earlier at the hands of the Time Bandit's crew.

So he lures them closer by telling Time Bandit Captain Andy Hillstrand, "We got a little shake in the back there. I don't know what it is."

When the Time Bandit swings around to take a look, Captain Sig and his crew launch a barrage of fireworks at them. The Time Bandit fires back, and the two wind up putting on one of the more impressive fireworks displays we've seen on television. Many cities' July 4th celebrations would be put to shame by the firepower on display.

Captain Keith Gets Violent With a Cameraman on 'Deadliest Catch' (VIDEO)

Captain Keith Colburn loses his temper with camerman Brad Carper on 'Deadliest Catch'The drama on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tuesdays, 9PM on the Discovery Channel) usually comes from the pressure the captains and crew are under to make a good haul and pay their bills, not the pressure of filming a reality show. But things got out of control on Tuesday's episode, when Captain Keith Colburn exploded at a cameraman, pushing him against a wall and screaming in his face.

Colburn was stressed, sitting at the helm ranting about running a three million dollar business that was two million dollars in debt. "I don't know why I [bleep!] deal with it," he said. That's when Colburn picked up the phone, snapped at cameraman Brad Carper, who wanted to talk to the producer, and then went after Carper, yelling at him about how he sleeps too much and never makes him coffee.

Captain Keith Lays It on the Line for Greenhorn Danny on 'Deadliest Catch' (VIDEO)

'Deadliest Catch'The dangerous work the men do on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tue., 9PM ET on Discovery) makes it even more important that the entire crew is on the same page, focused and ready to tackle the job at hand. As it's such a team effort, one person not on their A-game can be costly. It's right there in the title how serious this is, after all.

So we understand completely when Capt. Keith Colburn called out Danny, one of his crew, in front of everyone else. This is too dangerous and too serious to allow one disgruntled crew member ruin a nearly $1 million haul.

When Danny came to confront him about the public berating, Keith first shut Danny up and then laid it on the line.

From 'Deadliest Catch' to 'Dancing With the Stars'?

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 29th 2011 1:30PM
Sig HansenIt's a little early to start taking 'Dancing With the Stars' rumors seriously, but here's one we can get behind: Reality Blurred reports that 'Deadliest Catch' star Sig Hansen has been approached to compete for the mirrorball trophy next spring.

Over the past few seasons, the ABC series has cast pretty young reality stars to samba alongside sports pros and classic TV actors, but we like the idea of going a bit older. And since Hansen has been vocal about his love for the show -- he told Jay Leno last year that he wanted to try his hand at competing -- it's a good match.

"They're looking at it for next March and I'll do it," Hansen told The St. Petersburg Times in a quote that didn't make the final article, but the reporter provided to Reality Blurred. "I think it'd be good for the brand, once-in-a-lifetime thing, and it's f***in' cool, you know?"

His son Josh says Phil wanted his ashes spread at sea: "The tides will carry him wherever he wanted to go."

'Deadliest Catch' CatchCon 2011CatchCon 2011 was a time for captains and crews of 'Deadliest Catch' to connect with fans, let people tour some of the boats from the show and tease Season 7 (premieres Tues., April 12, 9PM ET on Discovery).

It was also time for a little ship talking.

I got to go to Seattle -- where the weather felt cold, wet and a lot like it looks on the show -- to catch up with Sig Hansen (Northwestern), Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand (Time Bandit), Wild Bill Wichrowski (Kodiak), new captains Scott "Junior" Campbell Jr. (Seabrooke) and Elliott Neese (Ramblin' Rose), and the sons of dearly departed Capt. Phil Harris, Josh and Jake Harris (Cornelia Marie).

The guys talked about life and the show after Capt. Phil and the new blood that's coming to shake things up this season, including Elliott whose claim to fame is having the most handsome crew in the Bering Sea.

Yeah, as you can imagine, the other guys were all over that with plenty of bleeped responses. They also dish about some hazing rituals to welcome the newbies, this season's horrific weather and the best part about connecting with fans from around the world at this third annual event.

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 5th 2010 11:00AM
'Deadliest Catch'Last week, Sig Hansen announced he would join colleagues Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand and not participate in the next season of Discovery Channel's 'Deadliest Catch.' But now that king crab season is almost upon us, it appears the trio could possibly be in talks to rejoin the show -- at least according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The three crab fishermen decided not to participate in the upcoming season of 'Deadliest Catch' because Discovery is suing the Hillstrand brothers for not completing work on a spinoff show they reportedly agreed to film. The Hillstrands alleged that the $3 million lawsuit would force them to sell their boats. Hansen dropped out of 'Deadliest Catch' to show his support for the brothers.

Discovery Channel Sues 'Deadliest Catch' Stars for $3 Million

Discovery Channel sues 'Deadliest Catch' stars Jonathan and Andy HillstrandAnyone waiting for a 'Deadliest Catch' spinoff series from Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand might want to adjust their expectations. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Discovery Channel is suing the brothers for $3 million, claiming they never completed work on the spinoff show, called 'Hillstranded,' they had agreed to film.

The Discovery Channel argues that the Hillstrands completed two weeks of principal photography for a show about their lives in Alaska, then refused to sit for interviews necessary to complete the project.

In a THR follow-up article, a lawyer for the brothers said in a statement, "The recent actions of Discovery Communications are an astonishing and shameful instance of arrogance and greed run amok ... Three million dollars is exponentially greater than any compensation ever paid to the 'Deadliest Catch' captains, and yet this is the figure Discovery is trying to extort from these men."
