Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” has not only introduced television viewers to the dangers of Bering Sea crab fishing, but it’s made stars of some of the captains and crew members.
An NPR segment notes the show’s subjects “now have to juggle crab fishing with talk show interviews and run-ins with obsessive fans.”
