‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ spotlight: Will Sig Hansen catch victory in his net?

Sig -Sig Hansen may be great in the Bering Sea, but how about in the chilly “Celebrity Apprentice” boardroom? He is an interesting choice for the show, given that the “Deadliest Catch” star is used to being in his element, risking his life in order to be a part of a delicate operation in a remote part of the world.

Basically, he is going from Alaska to one of the most-populated places in the world for this competition. This competition could be tough for Sig, but almost from a sociological perspective, we are interested to see how he fares in the boardroom alongside celebrities with giant egos.

Claim to fame – Captain of the Northwestern on the Discovery show “Deadliest Catch.” He has been a fixture of the show from the very beginning, and is one of the more-notable personalities.

Advantages – We cannot speak too much on specifics here given that we are not an avid “Deadliest Catch” viewer, but we would figure that after being in the Bering Sea, nothing on this show is going to scare him. He’ll be a hard worker, unafraid to do so of the more workhorse-oriented tasks. With that, we could see him being a popular person on the team.

Disadvantages – Outside of “Deadliest Catch” fans, there’s not much mainstream name recognition here. Also, how many celebrities is this guy going to know in the New York area? The major thing we’ll be worried about here is that with so many other big personalities on this team, Donald Trump could fire him for something small just to keep some crazier people around.

Charity – Coast Guard Foundation. Given how much the foundation is promoting Hansen’s appearance on the show, he may be a regular supporter. This foundation helps members of the Coast Guard and their families.

Prediction – It seems hard to think of a reason for Sig to be fired right away, and who knows? He could be such a hard worker that his deficiencies in this competition are somewhat sidestepped. We do think he has a limited shelf life in the competition, though, and will be gone before the final five.

How well do you think that Sig is going to fare in this not-so-deadly environment? Let us know right now with a comment, and head over here to get some more spotlights from this season!
