QVC Catches ‘Deadliest Catch’ Crab Cakes For Sunday Debut, Post Reports

November 30, 2012

QVC host David Venable has crabs — as in crab cakes, from some crew members of Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch.”

The New York Post reported this week that Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand, who are on the hit reality series, will join the long roster of TV show stars who are hawking products on QVC.

The Hillstrand boys

“Deadliest Catch” was developed by the creator of the macho reality show genre, producer Thom Beers, who we interviewed and profiled several years ago.

The Hillstrand boys will be selling “Deadliest Catch Alaskan Style Crab Cakes,” according to the Post, on Venable’s “In the Kitchen With David” show Sunday at noon.

The Post wrote that “according to press materials,” which of course we never got, these crab cakes are “packed with three types of 100 percent USA caught crab, wild caught cod fish and the Hillstrand family’s secret blend of seasonings.”

Apparently, the press release also said that these “Deadliest” crab cakes were “created especially for QVC foodies … they’re sure to make a splash with seafood lovers of all ages.”
