Gold Rush Alaska Reality Stars Net Worth
|The Stars on Gold Rush Alaska|
The Gold Rush reality television show aka “Gold Rush Alaska” is a reality show on the Discovery TV Channel. The show features strong-minded men who are reacting to the current financial downturn in America and decide to go hunting for gold in the wilderness of northern Alaska.
The first season of the show was called Gold Rush Alaska featuring six men from Sandy, Oregon, a small town located 30 miles southeast of Portland. In season 2 the show was renamed simply “Gold Rush.” Todd Hoffman forfeits a lease on Porcupine Creek after “Dakota” Fred Hurt buys the claim from under him from the owner Earl Foster.
Between seasons two and three of the Gold Rush Show, Todd Hoffman and some crew members travel to a far-flung region in Guyana, South America hunting for gold during the Klondike cold winter season. Even though the team finds gold it’s not worth the effort covering the high-cost mining half way around the world.
Gold Rush Season 4 began August 2013, but the real show premiered on the 25th day of October 2013. It starts with “Gold Rush -The Dirt Episode” as a pre-season opener. Season 5 premiered on the 17th, October 2014 missing one of the most colorful characters on the Gold Rush Show, Dakota Fred. In fact, there was no mention of Dakota Fred coming back to the Gold Rush Season 5 found anywhere. That is until
That is until Fred himself posted a message on his FaceBook page basically saying none of the Dakota Boys will be appearing on the Gold Rush Show anytime in the near future. Fred’s figured out the miners aren’t the only ones finding gold on this show and apparently wants his contract renegotiated before returning for another successful season. Something tells me, like always, Fred will eventually get his way and hopefully return in Gold Rush Season 6.

Todd Hoffman’s Net Worth
The Gold Rush Alaska Show was first based off Todd Hoffman and his Dad’s dream to become a 21st century Gold Miner’s. Todd risked his entire net worth for a chance at the American Dream and become a millionaire in a single season. Unfortunately, after the first four Gold Rush Seasons, the Hoffman’s spent considerably more money compared to how much gold was recovered. Last year in season 5, when Todd and Jack was abandoned by most of the crew, the Hoffman’s were more determined to prove they have what it takes to become successful gold miners. Todd Hoffman is finally starting to make a profit Gold Mining on a large scale. After finding more gold in a single year than all others combined,

Jack Hoffman’s Net Worth
Jack Hoffman is Todd’s father who’s been Gold Mining for over 25 years. One phrase I remember him saying to the crew in the first season and one I’ll never forget is, “You’re Already Millionaire’s, you just have to go dig it out of the ground”. Jack Hoffman’s Net Worth also increased last season to an estimated $500,000.00 as he continues to dig towards his million dollar dream.
Dakota Fred Hurt’s Net Worth
Dakota Fred is an American gold prospector with many different talents from underwater rescue training to an expert in the demolition for hard rock mining explorations. Fred’s also known for his unique negotiating skills shall we say, especially when it comes to mining. It’s certainly helped create a sizable net worth for himself and his family over the years. Currently, Dakota Fred Hurt’s Net Worth is estimated at $3 to $5 million.
Chris Doumitt originally joined Gold Rush Alaska for ten days helping build a cottage for Greg Remsburg’s crew. The gold mining bug bit and he remained in Alaska for five months joining the crew. Chris left the Hoffman team after season 3 and worked for Parker Schnabel in season 4 and 5.
Dave Turin’s Net Worth
Dave Turin is an engineer by trade with an estimated net worth over $2 million. Turin was born in Sandy, Oregon, and holds a degree in Civil Engineering. Dave has become the glue holding the Hoffman crew together in more than a few occasions.
Tony Beets is a hardcore Dutch-Canadian gold prospector and owns the Tamarack Mine in Alaska. The Tamarack’s one of the most profitable mining operations in the entire Klondike region steal mining for gold. Beets also leases the Scrivener Creek claim Parker mined in Season 4 on his first attempt running a large operation. Tony Beet’s Net Worth is at least $5 to $7 million making it easy turning down Parker’s business proposal.
