Since the beginning, former “Dirty Jobs” star Mike Rowe has narrated Discovery’s crab-fishing docu-series “Deadliest Catch,” airing Tuesdays. In reading narration week after week, he’s learned a few facts about the boats out on Alaska’s Bering Sea.
But, it seems Rowe doesn’t know quite enough to please Andy Hillstrand, the co-captain (with brother Johnathan) of the F/V Time Bandit — and a little Twitter dust-up ensued between @mikeroweworks and @capt_andy.
Rowe fired back at Hillstrand’s assertion, made on Twitter in response to a fan’s comment, that he “doesn’t know s***,” with this video. (NSFW language, as you might expect.)
Then Hillstrand answered with a video of his own, schooling Rowe on the ins and outs of boats and current and former deckhands — in particular Jake Anderson, Josh Harris and Jake Harris.
On his Facebook page, Rowe replied to Hillstrand with “Well played, Captain. Well played. Please stand by for a more … detailed response.”
