Both captains agree that the most important attribute to success is hard work.
NEW YORK – Despite putting in more hard, grueling work than typical reality TV stars, two of the captains on Discovery’s “Deadliest Catch” opened up to Fox News about how they’re living the American dream.
Through their hard work, ability to overcome obstacles and a thirst for survival, the guys believe they’re successfully living the American dream. Looking back, they shed some light on what they believe helped them achieve so much.
“Well for me, I try to take after my father. Norwegian background and very conservative” Hansen said. “The American dream, for us, well it’s just having a family operation. A small business, but it does well at times. We want to see a sustainable industry so I can pass that down to my children. Now I have a grandson and maybe someday he’ll partake. So it’s this passing down the torch so to speak for me has been the dream.”
“For me, you know when I started working for Sig, I didn’t think I was going to live past 26 or 27. So, I set a goal out and I wanted to be captain, and now this season I’m seeing if I become an owner,” Anderson shared. “So it just keeps going for me. I just keep pushing it and pushing it and following my heart.
