Default Gold Rush

So who is watching the Alaska Gold Rush series on the Discovery Channel on Friday nights?

Will the Hoffman's strike it rich? Does anyone believe those guys have a clue about how to find gold?

Did the Hoffman's get a raw deal on the Porcupine Creek Claim they lost to Dakota Fred?

I watched it. It's all staged BS.

Last year the show claimed the Hoffman's sold the airport biz to fund the op... this year, they show them still owning the airport...

Everyone driving new F250 crew cabs/etc... yup they're broke.... sure.

The producers need to make a bit of an effort to keep the story line believable.

Gilligan's Island was more reality TV than this.

I agree. It is 100% fake. But it still makes for good entertainment. The people that think it is real are the people that believe that The Nation Enquirer is real. LOL.

Yea I agree with the fakeness of it. Last season they only got 20 k in gold and yet they all come back.... Who can afford that? Those guys looked pretty crusty at the end. Now two claims then one ... Bull@#$!

Dakota Freds alright. Todd was asleep at the wheel. Should have kept his lease up. Hey, Fred tried to meet up with Todd in the off season when he called. And yes, wrestling IS real!!

Fake!

Nobody but nobody is so damned stupid as to forget to pay the lease on their dream of a gold mine.

On top of that--

Tod is an idiot. And what about Dad Hoffman, the voice. One word from him and I am flipping the channel.

Seems like they realized another whole season with just the Hoffman's wasn't going to cut it so they added Dakota Fred and the high school kid to add a little excitement.

I think the TV money is how they were able to go back to Alaska, and I think their job is now earning money for being on TV, but they are not earning a living as a miner.

So why are we all going to watch all of the episodes?

The only guy on there with any sense is Dave Turin, the new guy. Of course, how much sense does he really have if he joined the show.
I enjoy the show for its entertainment value.

They are broke, this show is already a rerun from atleast a year ago,
they have a follow up to this show, that showed how broke they really were...

They did not strike it rich, you have better changes in North Carolina with Gemstones!!!

It's like fishing, try it here try it there maybe you decide to quit and you get a bit. I think the kid is going to end up punching Fred in the face.
