Mark Wahlberg is on the cover of this month’s Men’s Fitness magazine looking buffer than ever, but we asked the captains from the Deadliest Catch how he would do on one of their boats and they said he wasn’t in good enough shape!
“There is nothing on the planet that anybody does that is more brutal than anything we do,” Wizard Captain Keith Colburn exclusively told Men’s Fitness.
“The difference between men’s fitness and a crab fisherman’s fitness is more mental than physical,” Northwestern Captain Sig Hansen said.
The stars of the hit reality show joked around about how their guys stay in shape compared to a cover guy.
“You can’t work 30 hours straight if you’re Marky Mark,” Colburn said.
“They’re not going to beat me up like boot camp,” he explained. “Where they run you 6 miles a day, they run you 60 miles a day on the boat!”
Relishing the brutal physical strain the fisherman falls under, Colburn laughed about the men on his boat.
“27 came and failed. They come on the boat with a smile, they left the boat with a really big smile,” he said.
Hansen explained what the calorie consumption for guys on the boat is.
“Guys go with such drastic weight change; they can’t eat enough to fulfill their needs,” he explained.
Captain Colburn said they burned off everything they ate: “If they have a 5,000 a day diet they’re still losing weight.”
The Deadliest Catch airs on the Discovery Channel Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
