Deadliest Catch star missing, One of the “Deadliest Catch” stars is missing from the season premiere and that has fans wondering what is going on. The Ramblin Rose ship’s captain, Elliot Neese, who is the youngest out of all the “Deadliest Catch” captains, didn’t make an appearance at all on the premiere of the new season, according to Yahoo News on Friday, April 12, 2013.
The Discovery Channel Show has not addressed Neese’s absence, which is strange because usually if a main character in any show is leaving, it is announced way in advance of a new season starting. Fans know that Neese’s last season was bad and Captain Sig Hanson said he wouldn’t be surprised if Neese was fired because his last season wasn’t up to par financially.
Hanson said that if the captain isn’t making money for the ship’s owner, it would make sense to fire them and get someone else in their place that can turn a profit. Neese was also cited for having an undersized blue crab last season, which was just a lousy season for the guy all around.
Neese responded to fans’ concerns on Twitter about his missing mug on the premiere. He said that his relationship is “good” with the show and that he didn’t miss the season premiere. He also said that the crew showed up ready to work, leaving many to believe Nesse is part of the show this season after all.
