'Deadliest Catch' Capt. Sig Hansen takes 'Dancing' quest to Jay Leno

sig-hansen-dancing-outfits.jpgWith a little help from Zap2it and the Hot Cuppa TV blog, crab-boat Capt. Sig Hansen of Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch" has been angling to be the first fisherman to compete on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

Thursday night (April 29), he may be taking his campaign national with an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," if the pictures above, provided by Discovery, are to be believed.

It's still up in the air whether "Deadliest" executive producer Thom Beers will ever be able to put that pink tutu on the captain's chair aboard the F/V Northwestern, but it looks like Hansen's quest to dance is getting serious.
