Mark Burnett recently joined twitter and will be live tweeting during the show. As you know Mark Burnett doesn’t spare any expense and the production values for this show will be over the top (like everything else he does, like Survivor for example).
Here are some pictures of Joe, Gus and Nino on their Gloucester Fishing Boat The Captain Domenic-
In celebration of his new, epic summer reality series, “Expedition Impossible,” Mark Burnett will be up on Twitter at @MarkBurnettTV on Thursday, June 23 from 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET and PT, during the premiere of the show, to offer commentary on the exciting action taking place, as well as behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

On the premiere episode, “Sun! Sand! Sahara!,” the 13 teams of ordinary Americans set out on the adventure of a lifetime across the ancient kingdom of Morocco, battling rugged terrain, untamable animals and each other. After facing the sand dunes of the Sahara and the cliffs of Todra Gorge, one team will be eliminated.
Adventurer, zoologist, big cat trainer and all around risk taker Dave Salmoni hosts the show.
Featuring high adventure and human drama, “Expedition Impossible” follows 13 teams of 3, racing in a fun expedition across vast deserts, over snow capped mountains and through raging rivers in the beautifully exotic, fabled kingdom of Morocco. Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed to the teams. Will they crumble under the pressure of having to think clearly in the wilds of the great outdoors, or will they find a way to work together to complete their adventures? And if one person quits, the entire team is eliminated. After 10 stunning legs of competition with drama, comedy and great characters, one team will cross the finish line first to claim victory. Each winning team member will receive $50,000 ($150,000 total for the team) as well a new Ford Explorer.
Here’s a four part video series I taped with the guys-

We will bring you down to show you what it’s like in the fish hold of a dragger in one of the upcoming videos in our 4 part video series with the men who will be representing our community on Mark Burnett’s Expedition Impossible which will premiere June 23 at 9PM.

There is one thing I can guarantee you. Just from knowing how much heart these guys have that you will never hear them utter the words “I quit” or “I can’t”. You know how on these types of shows you see some dude who inevitably backs down from some challenge because they can’t take the heat? I’d bet my life you will not see that from our boys from G-Town.
The show will premiere June 23 at 9PM on ABC. Don’t forget to set your DVR to record the entire season!
The Show which is produced by Mark Burnett, the creator of Survivor, Shark Tank and the Apprentice will premiere June 23 at 9PM on ABC.
I spent the morning with the boys aboard their Gloucester fishing boat the Captain Domenic and we got a whole lot of exclusive video footage aboard the boat. We talk about the show, we talk about commercial fishing and how it all works aboard the Captain Domenic including taking you inside the pilot house, the deck of the Captain Domenic and down the fish hold where you will see how they care for the fish once it is landed. I’ll present this as a 3 or 4 part series of videos leading up to the premiere of the show so stay tuned to GMG for all the updates and a ton of pictures of our hometown heros!
Who else is going down in the fish hold to get you guys the inside scoop? 🙂
As you guys know if you follow GMG that The Sanfilippo Boys are on Mark Burnett’s Expedition Impossible. Here’s a trailer in which Joe Sans Is Featured swimming at 1 minute 48 seconds in. Click the picture to view the video!

From The Site-
Ready to represent the storied Northeast fishing community of Gloucester, Gus (the captain), Nino (the engineer), and Joe (the deckhand) are three old-school Italian fishermen with small town values and big time hearts. Bonded together by blood (Gus and Nino are brothers, Joe is their cousin), they also work side-by-side as crewmates aboard the Captain Dominic. They believe their experience working together under pressure and routinely risking their lives while out at sea gives them an inherent "toughness" that will help them win. We’ll see if that’s the case.
This One Has Been Killing Me to Keep Under My Hat!!!!

ABC announces cast for ‘Expedition Impossible’ (Yep, its another amazing race coming to you in June!)
Now that Mark Burnett is stealing some thunder away from American Idol with The Voice, is he now hoping to suck a little steam out of The Amazing Race?
You be the judge: Burnett is the man behind a new summer reality show for ABC dubbedExpedition Impossible, which features 13 teams of three players who will travel across deserts, mountains and rivers in the “exotic, fabled Kingdom of Morocco.” Fun? Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed to the competitors, who must find a way to work together to complete the trip. After 10 legs of competition, one team will cross the finish line. Winners each receive $50,000, a Ford Explorer (nice product placement) and the privilege of never having to be called members of the Fab 3, Mom’s Army, or Grandpa’s Warriors ever again.
You think we’re kidding? Check out the monikers given to the 13 teams, which start the expedition on Tuesday, June 21. (My money is on the fishermen. Not so much for the gypsies):
Here’s Joe Sanfilippo and dory partner Marc Duval Getting In Some Early Season Dory Race Training
and after a hard fought Dory Race Win-
You may recognize Joe Sanfilippo from his interviews down at the dock, he is one of our lobstermen. If not here he is in the RunGloucester Race-
Here’s Nino Sanfilippo Taking Home The 1998 Greasy Pole Flag-
Here is Joe Sanfilippo’s Chevy pick up truck.
Joe carries the normal stuff that skiff lobstermen carry in the back of their pick up trucks- fuel jugs, water jugs, covered fish totes to put bait in, some random buoys.
What you might also notice in the back of Joe’s truck are the dory oars and bench set up that he uses to train for the upcoming International Dory races. Joe is an avid rower and always a contender to represent Gloucester with his partner in the International Dory Races between Gloucester and Lunenburg.
He lobsters out of a 22 foot Eastern skiff after work and on weekends with his son Ryan.
Here’s a photo of Joe Rowing in the International Dory Races From GMG contributor Mike Lindberg-
