The 25 Best Reality TV Stars of 2012

18. Josh Harris (Deadliest Catch, Discovery Channel)

For the rest of its run on the Discovery Channel, the Deadliest Catch will be shadowed by the tragic death of cast member Captain Phil Harris, he of the crab fishing vessel Cornelia Marie. Harris passed away in 2010, from complications due to a stroke he’d suffered a month earlier. During his time on the series, Harris appeared in episodes alongside his two sons, Jake and Josh, and after his death the two continued to appear on Deadliest Catch aboard the Cornelia Marie. In recent episodes Josh has hopped aboard another vessel, the Time Bandit.

Though he’s got a long way to go in terms of becoming a captain like his father was, Josh's potential is definitely evident so far. But, as being in the world of reality television at a young age can get to a person’s head (his brother, Jake, has already been to rehab battling a drug addiction), you can’t help but root for him.
