I’m not a giant fan of television these days, but when I need some mindless activity to pass an hour or two I confess to being addicted to reality TV. No, not Jersey Shore or Mafia Wives, but I love Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers and Swamp People. I’d say that Deadliest Catch is a particular favorite and even more so since I interviewed Sig Hansen who is one of the program’s biggest stars.

He came across as an easy going, genuine guy who loved the outdoors and sportfishing when he wasn’t busy being the captain of the Northwestern and catching crabs.

Well, yesterday Capt. Sig announced that he’s going to head over to the dark side. He has auditioned for a spot on Dancing With The Stars.

“I think it’d be good for the brand, once-in-a-lifetime thing, and it’s f*$*&#& cool, you know?” he said.

Sig? I’m here to tell you that it is most decidedly not cool and I beseech you to rethink your actions. Catch crab, Sig. Leave the dancing stuff to Donnie Osmond.
