Gold mining has been a respectable occupation for centuries, but the excitement, hardships, and freedom that come with it have been forgotten by the majority. When gold mining tv show suddenly brought it back, millions became instantly addicted and just couldn't get enough. There is just something about the allure of gold, getting your hands dirty, and risking it all that appeals to many, but most people just don't possess the guts to do go out and do it. Or perhaps, they possess more common sense than our beloved stars on Discovery Channel Gold Rush.
This real rags-to-riches story initially seemed to have dire foreshadowing for the Hoffman crew during the first season, and the majority of the fans just wanted to see these icons of the American free spirit find at least a little gold. At the end of the first season of Discovery Channel Gold Rush, it seemed the Hoffman crew was going home not just empty-handed and financially, physically, and mentally broken, but also and heart-broken.
When fans learned there was going to be a second season because the Hoffman crew had now liquidated all of their assets and acquired every loan possible, the enthusiasm for Discovery Channel's Gold Rush among the tens of millions of fans was almost tangible. It seemed the crew was back in action and ready to execute a new plan based on what they had learned from their mistakes. However, their former and unwanted coworker, Dakota Fred, suddenly threw an unexpected wrench in the Hoffman's plan of mining their beloved Glory Hole.
With the miners currently in better shape than their unexpectedly heart-breaking start, it seems that the Discovery Channel's Gold Rush fans are finally rewarded with some reprieve. In the media buzz, many fans expressed their strong emotional bond with these distant miners and really hoped and wished for their success. Although the miners haven't quite hit the jackpot, the turn-around of their financial health now seems inevitable.
