'Deadliest Catch': Capt. Sig on swapping VHS tapes on the Bering Sea
As season 10 of Discovery’s Deadliest Catch continues, fans can see how Capt. Sig Hansen and his Northwestern crew are adjusting to having greenhorn Mandy Hansen, Sig’s 18-year-old daughter, on deck—and occasionally, in the wheelhouse. (Sorry, Jake Anderson.)
When Sig and Mandy stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Monday, Sig explained why he’s never eager to have a woman onboard (a topic other Catch captains discussed with EW before the season began). Since this was the TV Editor’s Hour, we also discussed how crews entertain themselves when they aren’t on a grind. The guys on the Cape Caution may fight over Sons of Anarchy DVDs, but Suits is a popular pick on the Northwestern. And while we’ve seen the Northwestern trade deckhands while at sea, Sig explains the lost/tricky art of swapping VHS tapes.
Deadliest Catch airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery.
