Deadliest Catch on Discovery Channel aired its season finale on Tuesday, dedicating the episode to the fallen Time Bandit member, Justin Tennison. However, nothing was mentioned during the aired footage from the filming of the crab fishing show about the fishermans death, which left many people wondering who was he and what happened? We have found out…keep reading for more details!
Deadliest Catch fans watched the season finale this week, which was dedicated to fallen crew member, Justin Tennison, who was found dead in his hotel room back in February. Although no official autopsy results have been revealed on the death, TMZ reported that the star was found with drugs and alcohol in his hotel room, and police noted that it looks as though Justin had thrown a party the night before.
After his passing, his friends on of the Time Bandit posted on their website saying: “Justin was tough as a bull and was an all-around good hand. The captains and crew appreciated his hard work and many contributions this past year. We will miss him terribly and wish his family all the best during this most difficult time,” while the network said: “Discovery Channel is saddened by the passing of Time Bandit crew member Justin Tennison.” The death of Justin comes just a year after the tragic death of Captain Phil Harris, who suffered a stroke during the filming of the hit show.
Justin Tennison of Deadliest Catch was only 34 years old when he passed away and is survived by his two children. If you were a fan of Justin, or the show in general, you are welcome to share your memories and condolences on the Time Bandit’s official website. All of us here at Reality TV Magazine send our prayers and condolences to Justin’s family as we are sure they are still struggling with their loss.
