Captains Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand are into the sixth season of “Deadliest Catch” aboard the Time Bandit. Throughout the year, when they’re not tackling the Bering Sea, the Hillstrand brothers keep very busy by making appearances at several different events. It was one such event that introduced the brothers to AMF Offshore Racing and the Miss GEICO team. Lucky for us, the Miss GEICO team felt we absolutely had to meet these guys. And they were right!

We have been working with Captains Andy and Johnathan on a few commercials and appearances, and we love the energy and enthusiasm they bring. They recently signed autographs in Charlotte, N.C., for a crowd of hundreds at the Speed Street Festival. The Hillstrand brothers can be seen welcoming the caveman to the boat and having a snack with him after a long day in two of the commercials they teamed up with us on. They are also no strangers to practical jokes — even with Kash! And, it’s nice to know they can take some time to relax, too!

The Hillstrands are busy promoting the current run of “Deadliest Catch,” now in its sixth season, airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Discovery Channel. I love the show – let us know what you think!
