"DEADLIEST CATCH" RIVAL SKIPPERS JOIN FORCES TO WIN BIG ON "WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE"

Captains Sig Hansen and Keith Colburn Try to Navigate Their Way Up to the Million Dollar Question on Friday, April 26

NEW YORK (April 23, 2013) - "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," with host Meredith Vieira, will welcome two "Deadliest Catch" skippers, Sig Hansen (Captain of the Northwestern) and Keith Colburn (Captain of the Wizard) as contestants on the hit game show, Friday, April 26, 2013. "Millionaire" airs weekdays. Check local listings or go to http://www.millionairetv.com for time and channel.

Hansen and Colburn may be rivals during the crabbing season on Discovery Channel's hit show "Deadliest Catch," but the veteran fishing captains will put their egos aside on "Millionaire" as they join forces as a two-person team to win money for the Seattle Children's Hospital.

"We compete for a living, so because of this game show, we've now bonded!," said Hansen.

"This is only a momentary bonding though, trust me," added Colburn.

Hansen and Colburn will donate their winnings to the Seattle Children's Hospital (http://www.seattlechildrens.org/) to assist with their Uncompensated Care Fund, which helps families that need financial assistance with their children's medical treatments. The "Deadliest Catch" duo are guaranteed to win at least $10,000.

Hansen and Colburn are used to navigating rough seas, hurricane force winds and massive icebergs on "Deadliest Catch," but said that those challenges pale in comparison to the stress of appearing on "Millionaire." Tune in on April 26 to see if their nerves of steel hold up, as they try to win big money for charity.

"WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE":

"Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" is in its 11th season in national syndication. Every weekday, contestants are given the extraordinary chance to win life-changing money by answering entertaining pop culture and general knowledge trivia questions. As America's richest game show, "Millionaire" continues to be the only game show to offer a $1-million prize to each and every contestant. With its fresh and fun new format, the randomization of the questions ensures that no two games are alike and that each path to $1-million is unique and unpredictable. "Millionaire" is produced by Valleycrest Productions Ltd. and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. Rich Sirop is the executive producer.
