‘Gold Rush’ — Most Asked Questions About Discovery’s Show Answered

Gold Rush is a reality TV series running for over 12 seasons on Discovery. The first season was titled Gold Rush: Alaska, but it was renamed Gold Rush when the second season aired.

As the title suggests, the show follows the lives of different ambitious miners, mainly family-run mining companies, in their pursuit of gold. There are new locations, new miners, new stakes, new machines, and more every season, making things even more exciting.

To this date, the show has garnered popularity and a healthy viewership from all over the world. And the show has led to the origin of several more after-shows and specials, including Gold Rush: The Jungle, Gold Rush: South America, Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune, and Hoffman Family Gold.

During its 12 seasons, viewers have been intrigued with what they have seen in the show and have many questions in their minds. Here we try to answer some frequently asked questions about Discovery’s Gold Rush!


Is Gold Rush canceled? Season 13 updates

Gold Rush season 12 began airing on September 24, 2021, with new episodes released weekly at 8 pm ET / PT. The 24th episode, or the season finale, premiered on March 25, 2022.

The latest installment of the Discovery show followed the mining crews of Tony Beets, Rick Ness, Fred Lewis, and Parker Schnabel as they joined forces with the neighboring Clayton Brothers at the end of the season.

Since the end of season 12, fans have been curious to know if the show would be renewed for another season. And they also want to know if the show is canceled as several other networks have unexpectedly canceled some of their hit movies and TV shows.


However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Gold Rush, as there is no news of the show being canceled by Discovery. One of the big reasons why there is less chance of the show being canceled is because Gold Rush is Discovery’s most-watched title, per People Magazine.

That said, there are no details on the new season as well. And maybe that’s because season 12 just ended on March 25, 2022, and it might take some while before the network prepares to greenlight season 13.

For now, Gold Rush isn’t canceled, and there are higher chances of season 13. As for the Gold Rush‘s cast in 2022, we’ve already seen some familiar faces in season 12, and the case may be the same in the new season, although there might be some additions.


What day is Gold Rush on Discovery?

Gold Rush season 12 aired every week at 8 pm ET / PT. But, as there is no new season, there aren’t any new episodes of Gold Rush currently airing on Discovery. And if you still wish to watch the show, you can still get a subscription to Discovery and binge-watch the older seasons.

Has Parker left Gold Rush?

Parker hasn’t left Gold Rush. Parker Schnabel, aka Parker, has been a part of the Gold Rush since the first season and has been an integral part of the show.

Besides, he was recently seen in the all-new season of his spinoff show Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail, which aired after Gold Rush season 12. In the new season of Parker’s Trail, he explored the mining places of New Zealand.


The special episode of Parker’s Trail aired on June 10, 2022, and its first episode aired on June 17. The spinoff show had only six episodes, with the season finale airing on July 25, 2022.

On the other hand, when Gold Rush season 12 aired, fans were shocked to see that Ruault had left Parker’s crew and then joined the rival team of Rick Ness.

How much is Rick Ness Worth off of Gold Rush?

Rick Ness joined Gold Rush in season 2 and worked as Parker’s right-hand man. However, at the end of season 8, Ness decided to leave Parker’s shadows and start working independently.


Gold Rush season 9 became the first season where Ness started operating independently. And by the end of the season, he had mined 1,105 ounces of gold worth $1.3 million.

Ness had a rough time during season 10 as he barely mined 547 ounces. But the losses were recovered in season 11 as Ness and his team had mined gold worth around $2 million. And in season 12, Ness and his team mined 2,074 ozt (64,500 g) of gold.

So, how much has Ness earned with everything he has done as an independent operator and Parker’s right-hand man? Celebrity Net Worth reports that Ness has accumulated a healthy net worth of $3 Million.


Is Gold Rush scripted?

When it comes to reality television series, one of the main questions that come to people’s minds is whether or not the show is unscripted/real or scripted/fake.

And the same questions have been asked by many Gold Rush viewers. The answer remains on the common ground: some of the things shown in the show are real, whereas some things are scripted.

However, Jimmy Dorsey, a former show cast member, has claimed that Gold Rush is scripted. The revelation came during his interview with Oregon Gold when the interviewer asked him if the show was scripted.


In reply, Dorsey said, “Sure. Every formatted documentary is scripted. It is scripted from the beginning. They knew exactly what they wanted to see out of the program. Even me leaving was scripted, but in the way in which it happened was not.”

“The plans were made, but the footsteps were ours. They actually direct you into these situations. It became very real. That is why I actually got my ribs broke. There was a fight…not even a fight…I was assaulted by Greg. He broke my ribs.”

Dorsey continued, “That was very real, but it was also in the script for episode four which ended up being episode six, that I would end up leaving the show. They kind of push you towards, making these things happen.”


Dorsey’s statements also prove that there is a common ground between real and fake when it comes to reality TV shows. As for Gold Rush, the producers construct the circumstances, but things get genuine in plotting and executing those circumstances.

Inside Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s Height Difference

There is a noticeable height difference between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.



Benedict Cumberbatch And Martin Freeman’s Height Difference

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are both British actors who are perhaps best known for their roles in the television series Sherlock, which aired from 2010 to 2017.

In the series, Cumberbatch played the title character, Sherlock Holmes, while Freeman portrayed his sidekick, Dr. John Watson. Fans of the show have been obsessed with the height difference between the two actors, with many taking to social media to discuss and comment on it.

According to their IMDB bios, Cumberbatch stands at 6’0″ (183 cm) while Freeman stands at 5’7″ (170 cm). This means there is a noticeable height difference between the two actors when they appear on screen together.


Fans reacted to the height differences

Fans have been discussing the height difference between Cumberbatch and Freeman, and this has been a topic of discussion and memes on social media.

Twitterati has burst with a post that compared the height of these two The Hobbit actors. One Twitter user posted a photo where Cumberbatch and Freeman stood together.

She wrote in the caption, “I’m the same height as martin freeman.. So this is basically mine and benedict Cumberbatch’s heights compared..”


The post compared the height of both actors from their hands to their heads.

On a fan page dedicated to Cumberbatch, a photo was posted featuring Coca-Cola bottles of varying heights, with the bottle labeled ‘Ben’ being taller than the one labeled ‘Martin.’

The caption mocked the height of Cumberbatch and Freeman as it read, “even the height difference is accurate…”

Like the meme above, one of the Twitter users tweeted, “Benedict Cumberbatch is 14 Martin Freemans tall.”

In reply to the tweet, another user tweeted, “But when Benedict Cumberbatch takes his shoes off, his mouth is magically level with Martin Freeman’s face. Nature has decreed it so.”

The tall height of Cumberbatch alone has always dragged the attention of the fans. One fan tweeted, “I hate when I’m trying to sleep then I’m overwhelmed with the need to google something, like how tall is Benedict Cumberbatch I need to know.”


Similarly, the other one wrote on Twitter, “So, I just met Benedict Cumberbatch. I can’t stop shaking. How is he so tall? I barely come up to his frickin’ shoulder.”

Something not well between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

It’s not surprising that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are compared to each other, especially since Freeman also played a dwarf in the movie The Hobbit. Along with the fan’s comparison, there was a certain feud seen among the actors.

Mirror, in 2014, also reported that the two actors had a “toxic feud” on the set of the hit TV series Sherlock. According to the article, tensions rose between the two stars due to creative differences and egos. Freeman reportedly felt overshadowed by Cumberbatch’s popularity and the attention his character, Sherlock Holmes, was receiving.


According to the anonymous source, the two actors had a complicated working relationship and barely spoke to each other by the end of the show’s third season. It also suggested that Freeman’s dissatisfaction with the show’s direction may have contributed to his decision to leave after the fourth season.

Freeman, known for his role in The Office, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the overwhelming fan attention that comes with starring in Sherlock.“Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore,” he said.

In contrast, during an interview with The Telegraph in April 2018, Cumberbatch expressed his disagreement and criticized his co-star’s remarks. He noted, “I’m very grateful for the support, but that’s about it. It takes on its own thing. But that happens with every franchise or entity like this.”

Fans Want Nessa Barrett to Collab with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear

Will Nessa Barrett work with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear in the future?



Fans Want Nessa Barrett To Collab With Lana Del Rey And Blackbear

Fans want American singer Nessa Barrett to collaborate with Lana Del Rey and Mat Musto aka Blackbeard, after they followed each other on Instagram.

Barrett’s fans became excited about the collaboration with Lana Del Rey after she mentioned her name in an interview at the American Music Awards. She was asked, “if you could record with one artist then who would it be?” to which Barrett said, “I feel like Lana. I just love her and I am very inspired by her. She is all over my playlist. I feel like she has just a distinct style. I appreciate her as an artist.” 

On November 21, 2022, Variety posted a clip of her interview with the caption, “Nessa Barrett says her dream collaborator is Lana del Rey.” Following the post, many Barretts’ fans expressed their desire to see them in a future album.


One social media user wrote, “omg these two women would be so iconic together,” while another said, “friend I saw you talking about her and now I read this here I also remembered you kkkkk,” in Portuguese.

Barrett and Del Rey started following each other on social media shortly after Barrett mentioned her desire to collaborate with Del Rey. Barrett also followed Blackbear, which his followers noticed right away and expressed their desire for them to collaborate in the music. 

Similarly, whore4tea posted a screenshot of their social media account showing that they had recently followed each other and wrote, “First Lana Del Rey followed her, now blackbear?? We need a collaboration!” followed by a smiley and a heart emoji.


Even though fans are excited to see Barrett, Lana Del Rey, and Blackbear working together on new music, the singers have yet to respond. 

Nessa Barrett is TikToker turned singer

When Barrett first entered the public eye, she was well-known for her lip-syncing videos, and now, she’s kicked off a pretty massive music career. She first released her piano-based ballad debut single ‘Pain’ in 2020.

Later in October of the same year, Barrett released her second single, ‘If U Love Me,’ and in August 2021, her song ‘I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead’ debuted at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100. 


Barrett’s life has revolved around music. “If I’m being honest, music is one of the only ways that I can express myself because I can say so much that’s on my mind without actually saying it,” she said in an interview with the music blog Cool Accidents. “It’s my only outlet, my only coping skill and it does help.”

Blackbear dropped out of high school to pursue a music career

Growing up with a heroin-addicted father, Blackbear found solace and escape in music. He then dropped out of high school to pursue music full-time and began sending demos to people in the music industry. 

Later, he received one response from the manager of R&B singer Ne-Yo, who invited the young Mat to Los Angeles to spend a week writing songs with him. 


Since then, Blackbear entered the music industry and released various studio albums, including, Deadroses, Help, Digital Druglord, and many more. 

Lana Del Rey has had a lifelong interest in music

Del Rey began her career by performing at open mic nights and club gigs. She entered a songwriting competition in 2006; she did not win, but a panel judge assisted her in creating a demo, which led to her signing with the indie label ‘5 Points.’

Later, Del Rey posted self-made music videos for her songs ‘Video Games’ and ‘Blue Jeans’ to YouTube in 2011, with vintage footage interspersed with shots of her singing on her webcam.


After a lengthy career in the music industry, her song ‘Born to Die’ achieved commercial success, charting at number one in 11 countries and debuting at number two on the US Billboard 200 album chart. She has since released several albums, including Born to Die, Ultraviolence, Lust for Life, and many more.
