Parker is nothing short of amazing, and he is backed by a family who are also amazing...especially Grandpa John. The family dynamics present there make them all rich beyond their wildest dreams even without any gold. I think everybody would agree they deserve it all! The "Dakota Boy's" & their crew also have it goin on bigtime. They deservedly have a lot of fans and I am just one of them. The "Hoffman's", well all I can say about them is that Todd & his crew pretty much summed up their character & stupidity when, during the first season (?), he rebuffed the claim owners attempt to manage on "his" claim what was being mismanaged by Todd and his crew, by sending "Dakota Fred" to help the Hoffman's. Considering the trouble they were in at the time, they should have kissed Fred's feet and gladly did everything he said. But noooo, Fred was mistreated and declared persona non grata. That proved a lot to me about them, and said it all. They lost me at that point. To see them pretty much self destruct since then was predetermined by their attitude early on. Todd often talks when he should be listening.

Yeah, I have to agree jdf. They treated Fred like crap and it came back and bit them in the butt. If you look back over the last 4 seasons, you start to see a pattern form and that pattern is that Todd is reckless and winds up screwing it up for everyone else. 1 - They lost the claim in season 1 becasue Todd wasn't keeping up with the payments on the lot. Had be been responsible and made those payment on time, they never would have had to leave Porcupine Creek. 2 - Todd's decision to use the Turbo Trommel wound up costing them almost half a season (see my post about Todd always having to use the best equipment). 3 - Todd's decision to leave the Klondike, after they finally got everything going properly and actually started to produce a respectable amount of gold, wound up being the biggest failure thus far. They made nothing in an entire season of mining. Basically you begin to see that Todd just has no clue what he is doing and is reckless and irresponsible.
>>> OrangeCrush, Detroit 3/12/2014 3:20:26 AM
Oh yeah, and I agree 100% in regards to Parker. He is the true star of this show. He is only 17-18 and he has shown more maturity and mining ability than both the Hoffmans combined. His season 4 was truly remarkable and it couldn't have happened to a better person. I am also a big fan of Fred and Dustin now and I think Fred was spot on when he said Discovery wasnt showing him in the best of light in season 1. I now believe that to be 100% true. Thankfully, we have gotten to see his real character and personality in seasons 2-4. He is a stand up guy with a quality work ethic.
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/18/2014 6:34:48 PM
Thanks OCD. I like what you have to say as well. Ya Fred got a bum rap on the first season the way they tried to portray him, but I doubt you and I are the only ones who saw through that. He is a very knowledgeable guy who is also passionate about what he does, plus he seems to be a big hearted & likable guy in many ways. His son Dustin also seems to be a great guy. But they should rename their camp & team "World of Hurt" lol.
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/18/2014 6:39:55 PM
I forgot to mention that I disagree with you on one point, and that is, as a big a star of the show as most of us think Parker is, Grandpa John is the mega-star. That guy is truly loved by everybody, and there will a river of tears flowing anywhere this show airs when he goes to the big gold mine "in the sky". In a way, he has become a grandpa to all of us who watch the show.
>>> parker/grandpa #1 fan, florida 4/26/2014 8:49:37 PM
turd hoff(betty ford clinic), if anyone is a douche bag it's YOU.To bash a 17 yr old young man. I sense a major jealous problem. Looking at today's youth with their obesity, and there video games really. Parker is one hell of a kid, his loyalty to family values,and his drive. He has work ethic that will make him a sure success. Yes he has it a little easier taking it over from his hero/grandpa, and he is caulky, but he's 17.At that age we think we know it all. Once he matures, and realizes never to give his family any lip, he will be just like grandpa. Most teens his age in the lower 48 cant even fix a flat tire, on a bike. Let alone work operate machines, go to school, and understand the goals to keep the business moving. I give all the miners credit to get a mine going from scratch. I would work for parker for free.

why does discovery cover and or include ONLY the gold miners that obviously don't know what they're doing. Couldn't they at least have ONE crew (maybe tony beets or beats) that is successful and let us see that. At least we'd have something to compare to the rest of em'. Hoffmans?...one train wreck after another. Dakota's?..Fred may have had past success but, obviously he's lost it and the rest of em' are of no help. Parker...much like our president...over his head and NO CLUE as to what to do. Make this show a comedy and you've got a hit!!! Actually i never miss an episode but, there sure seems to be a never ending theme of losers running through this show. Good luck...hope no one gets hurt i KNOW no one is gonna get rich..!!

Turd Hoffman, Betty Ford Clinic 3/14/2014 8:57:41 PM
After seeing this last episode,how many of you Parker fans would put up with his petulant attitude and highway or my way managerial skills? Granted, he is a hard worker but that does not make him a nice person. Someone needs to buy him a vinegar and water because he's a douche bag.
>>> Sandy 3/16/2014 3:22:52 PM
The proof is in the pudding. Parker 1.5 mil; Todd a big fat zero! What does that say. To me, it says Parker's plan worked! Hoffman also had a huge crew, Parker, only a few. Also what do you think Todd means when he says "fricken" in almost every sentence! Parker's crew knows he means business! I would rather see petulance and success anytime, rather than Todd's cavalier attitude and ineptness. Did you see the smiles on the faces of Parker's crew when they knew each of them would have a great payday. I predict for next season, Parker's team will be back with bells on and that most of Todd's crew (especially his key people) will not trust him and will be gone. I wouldn't be surprised to see some of those key people go with Parker. As young as he is, he obviously knows mining. After all, look at his wonderful mentor! YOU GO GRANDPA. YOU CERTAINLY ARE THE MAN!!!
>>> Turd Hoffman, Betty Ford Clinic 3/16/2014 4:12:27 PM
First off,I am no Todd fan. He is the biggest tool in the tool box. Second, there is know doubt in Parkers enthusiasm. However he did run eight guys off the job site who weren't around long enough to even be filmed. And it wasn't until he offered his guys a cut of the gold before any of them changed their attitude about working for him. He so lucky his mechanic didn't walk or he would have been up Pocupine creek without a paddle.
>>> Mike, Farmington, MN 3/18/2014 10:36:13 AM
I actually think that Todd Hoffman is a better man than Parker. I'd rather work for Todd than Parker. Todd has a sense of humor. Todd is good with people. Parker fires people at the drop of a hat. Parker snaps back at disgruntled employees "if you don’t like it, then you can leave."
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/18/2014 6:26:12 PM
That's uncalled for man. I'd like to have seen what a DB you were at 18, and judging from what a DB you seem to be now, you have that position filled perfectly. Parker is a fine young man with the typical angst that goes with the age, but add to that, the extreme pressure he is under. I bet under that same pressure, you would fold like a tent DB. One of these days, you may just pop out from under a rock Parker turns over. Now get back under it till then lol.
>>> Turd Hoffman, Betty Ford Clinic 3/18/2014 8:01:47 PM
I can't be the only one who feels Parker is not a good person to work for. There are at least eight people who feel the same way as I do considering they all got run off the site before they ever got filmed. And as I said earlier his managerial skills are less than desirable. You can call me a DB if you like, but I am willing to bet that I work harder on a sick day than you do on a normal day. And the people who work for me appreciate and respect me at the end of the day. So go crawl back under YOUR rock. I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my description of Parker as a DB.
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/19/2014 3:31:04 PM
Ya you sound like a great guy....NOT! You don't know how hard I work DB, nor would I believe one word of your self congratulatory comments of what a great guy you are, how hard you work, and what others think of you. I doubt many of us (incl u btw) could have pulled off what Parker did...at any age let alone 18, especially with cameras following you around and over critical name calling types like yourself ready to disparage him for not being as "perfect" as you pretend to be.
>>> Ryan, Omaha 3/19/2014 5:16:16 PM
All the guy said was Parker would not be someone he'd work for. I'd have to agree. I'm starting to think you're Parker for as much as stick up for his childish behaviour.
>>> Turd Hoffman, Betty Ford Clinic 3/19/2014 6:11:40 PM
JDF, I never claimed to be perfect. I just said that I treat my employees with respect and in return they respect me. As the old saying goes, you can't demand respect you earn it. And I also think you could be Parker for as much as you stick up for his bad behavior.
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/20/2014 7:11:58 AM
First of all. Ryan, Turd called him a DB, which is really uncalled for and what set me off to begin with, especially when he presents himself as respectful. I have a son Parker's age (who I sometimes have a hard time with to get to mow the lawn lol), so I have a lot of admiration for that young man. He comes from a good family, and since I also admire his Grandpa so much, if Grandpa John thinks Parker is such a great guy, then that's good enough for me, and if Granpa John read any of the vicious criticisms of Parker by Turd, and it hurt his feelings, I would gladly stand up in a heartbeat to defend Parker. Now for you Turd (btw even your name says a lot about you), I didn't "stick up for his bad behavior", I simply said who among us wouldn't have succumbed to the pressure and acted out a bit, and you can't say that at times (like when GR dumped "Big Blue's" sluice-box unceremoniously)some of the guy's did stuff that would piss anybody off. I'm sure if a camera followed you around like it did for Parker, any of us who would bother to watch (and there wouldn't be many lol), would not think you were too great either. Heck, you don't even appear very good here, what with your "name" and how you viciously & verbally "beat-up" a young man, who like most of us could just use a "slap" once in awhile. Also, while all this was being filmed, Grandpa John was gravely ill, and being in a family myself who has felt that type of pain, I can say from experience that such things can cause a lot of negative personality changes. So lighten up man, lay off the kid. He will like most of us (you being the possible exception), learn from his "mistakes", and mature into a fine adult. To both of you, Parker wouldn't dignify either of your comments with a response. He is smarter than that. So, I can & will do it for him.
>>> Turd Hoffman, Betty Ford Clinic 3/20/2014 5:05:50 PM
JDF, do you stay up all night just waiting to reply to peoples stupid comments? Quit being so thin skinned about people criticizing Parker. The fact that he has cameras following him around is what he signed up for. If he doesn't want to be filmed, then don't be on the show. And like I said earlier, I'm sorry I called him a called douche bag. I should have said is he's a whiny teenager who threatens people with their livelihood when things don't go his way.
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/20/2014 8:35:58 PM
I don't stay up all night. Do you stay up all night to respond to me. I like to write...and debate. To your point of Parker signing up to be on TV. Yes that's true, but when I read what you called him, which I'm sure wasn't in his contract, I felt it needed a response. Yes you did apologize, but then you continued attacking me for standing up for him (which still continues), so as long as it does I will continue to respond to your criticisms as long as you keep leveling them at me. When they stop, I will stop. Until then, don't criticize me for responding to you. Just as you say Parker shouldn't be on TV if he doesn't want to be filmed, I say to that, if you don't want to be challenged for what you post, don't post anything, especially inflammatory comments. You are asking for it as much as you may think he was. Like you, I have also worked hard all my life (and never been fired or arrested), including 25 years as a professional firefighter, a heavy equipment operator, a truck driver, an armed guard etc, and I've often been away from home for long periods doing some of those things. So I know full well the pain of being away from home. Even as an adult it is not easy, so I empathize with him a lot in that regard. Since I have done so many things for work in my life, I have also been around a lot of different people, some of the time in very difficult and stressful situations, so I have seen and experienced people at their best, and at their worst, but even when some people are at their worst, their are often reasons for it. Sometimes those reasons are excusable, and sometimes they are not. Which brings me to the point of your statement that Parker threatened peoples livelihoods. Anytime myself, or others I have been around who got in trouble work, are/were the "authors of their own misfortune", that is they caused the problem to begin with, and the boss now has to deal with it. Yes Parker can be cranky, and tough on people, but that will either bring out the best in
>>> Turd Hoffman, Betty Ford Clinic 3/20/2014 9:15:56 PM
JDF,I too have worked 20 plus years and never been let go. My job duties include Environmental Scientist and UXO (unexploded Ordnance) recovery specialist. I look for bombs, shells and anything TNT or RDX related and dig them up and destroy them so people don't end up killing themselves. These jobs take me away from my family for months at a time.And in those 20 plus years there have been site managers who when away from the job were great guys to hang with. However the minute they stepped onsite they became complete assholes who's managerial skills were similar to Parkers. Needless to say they didn't last very long in that position and had to find a new line of work. It wasn't me who got rid of these guys it was the project managers decision. With that being said I'm out and will find something more constructive to do with my time like keep installing in my son the importance of earning respect through giving respect. PEACE
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/22/2014 5:10:55 AM
Your points aren't wrong, it's just that I feel that you are being unfairly harsh on a very young man who does not have the experience both of us older guys do. At his age, I had "long hair, a fast motorcycle ('74 900 Kawi), and a bad attitude" lol. But, those things which you point out he can learn (and I think he has), but ya can't teach work ethic either and he has that in spades. Lots of ppl can be hard-asses, and I've worked for a few, but those who "walked the walk", and not just "talked the talk", earn my respect. I also believe that a level of respect should also be shown even to those one may not like, and that I believe would include not name-calling. The Schnabel's are very good ppl by my estimation (who doesn't love his mom & grandnpa?), and I felt the need to protect their feelings by defending Parker. He ain't perfect by any means, but he is a great guy in many more ways than a lot of ppl I have worked with and been around. Btw, I would have been lucky to have had him on my fire crew. Being feisty and aggressive came in handy at times as a firefighter, and he would have fit in nicely. Let's all watch this young man develop into a better person, just as we all have (hopefully). There is an old saying a guy on the FD said to me which I never forgot..."people can change if people will let them". Let's "let" Parker change for the better, and not dwell on his mistakes. After all, he has done more things right (IMO) than he has done things wrong, and that can't be said about, or by just everybody.

I think Discovery has kept Todd because he resembles a Duck Dynasty character. They don't care if he and Jack faill because they need them on the bell curve of popularity. Pleanty of viewers are losers and failures, and we can't forget that they did get gold last year. But as a business man, professional miner and visonary, he totally sucks! Why would anyone who had assets in the Yukon decide to go seven thousands miles to a country with language barriers, extremely deadly creatures, bugs the size of Todd and natives willing to kill for a few hundred bucks? Discovery must have made it very attractive for all of them. It is common knowledge that each of these crew stars signs a contract with Discovery and they earn over six figures, so they got paid to fail or succeed. How else do they finance the next season with bigger equipment? Freddie Dodge is the man to watch, if you value success of any kind. I want to see guys like him and Parker hit it big, Hoffmans too, if they can, but they better give Todd some serious suggestions about his ideas, decisions and appearance before they sighn him up again, not that he'd listen anyway.
>>> KC, KC 3/19/2014 4:46:33 PM
JP, I agree with you on some of your observations & opinions. What we have to remember is that when you said that they (Hoffman's) got gold last season it was DAVE'S TEAM who got all but 7oz's. Team Todd sat around for MONTHS doing NOTHING. When the investor showed up Todd BS'd him & then ran...I mean waddled over to that poor Polaris to go to Dave for help. EVERY SINGLE TIME! We All Watch The Same Show. Go on Reality TV & Everyone Can See The Reality. For Some Unknown Reason Todd Somehow Gets People To Believe Him Although I Have Noticed His New Team Is A Lot Younger Than The Original Cast. Maybe Now The Older More Experienced Guys Have Him Pegged For The Smoke & Mirror Clown He Is.
>>> jdf, new brunswick canada 3/20/2014 7:23:41 AM
Well said guys. Freddy Dodge is the man to watch for sure, but I will also add that among Todd's crew, there are a couple of other "jewels in the rough", especially "Thurb" & Dave T. I think it's time for those guys to part company with Todd, and combine their talents and passion and team up with Freddy. Todd has had multiple chances to prove himself, and sadly, he has failed. Time to "fire the coach", and reform the team with a new "coach", that being FD.

For those of you who bash Parker because of his language (which I do not condone), he is doing what most of the crews on the show are doing as well as the majority of US citizens. He has an amazing work ethic and I personally am glad he told it like it was and kept his crew in line. In the end, it worked, didn't it. Getting Tony Beets to help him was brilliant and more power to him. Regarding Todd helping him with the equipment, Parker BOUGHT it and Todd certainly had no problem taking the money Parker paid. Both pieces ended up breaking down, so how did Todd help Parker? You have to admit that Parker made it big time this season simply because he used his brain and braun. He made 1.5 million so now who's the fool - Todd. GO PARKER AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! You are the only person on GR that makes it worth watching.

Parker Schnabel may swear but what 18 year old doesn't. Not only is he a hard worker but he is also one loving young man of his parents and his grandfather. The relationship he has with his grandfather is just precious. Wouldn't it be nice if other young adults could emulate this kind of love.
>>> Sandy 3/15/2014 12:18:51 PM
. . .and how would that be different from Todd. Parker is much more cautious than either Fred or Todd. Talk about taking risks. Remember when Fred put his equipment on the washout. Remember when Todd put his crew at risk when he demanded one of his crew jump in jungle water where he didn't know if there were caymans.TODD CERTAINLY DIDNT VOLUNTEER! Of course, there will always be risks. I don't think you should single out Parker.

>>> OrangeCrush, Detroit 3/7/2014 7:56:50 AM
He is obviously going to bring it back up to Alaska, especialy the trommel. That equipment is worth a lot of money so he really has no choice but to spend the money to transport it back. Either that or he will try and sell it to someone down there, to save on the cost of transporting it back. He is going to lose even more money either way he goes. Nobody is going to pay him top dollar as everyone knows its going to cost him an arm and a leg transporting that equipment back. That puts any potential buyers in the drivers seat in regards to negotiating price. At the very least, buyers can deduct 90% of the cost of Todd transporting it back.
>>> OrangeCrush, Detroit 3/7/2014 10:38:24 AM
In all honesty, I think the Hoffman's biggest problem at this point will be finding someone with a quality claim that will allow them to even step foot on it. After Season 4, I just can't imagine any claim owner letting Todd come in and mine it. Not only do they suck at mining, they are also like a Tsunami to the land itself. This is one aspect of Todd and crew that hasn't been really covered on the show. Did you see the condition of the claim by the time Todd got kicked off of it? It was like an F5 tornado went through there. He just tears everything up with no consideration towards the land itself. I am surprised he didnt rack up 100 infractions from the state of Alaska during the first few seasons. Obviously money isnt an issue as Todd has been a millionaire 3 times and has people calling him every other day wanting to give him money. I have no idea who these people are that are trying to give Todd money, but they can't be too bright either, especially after this last season. 3 ounces of gold and 50 itty bitty diamonds worth 600 bucks, lol. I could get more gold than that working by myself with nothing more than a gold pan. Its so horrid that its hard to believe it actually really happened. If you subtract the end of the 3rd season, Todd Hoffman has found less than 10 ounces in 3 full seasons of mining. Its nothing short of ludicrous given the amount of workers and euipment these guys have had at thier disposal.
>>> OrangeCrush, Detroit 3/7/2014 10:45:34 AM
Todd's mentaility has always been about equipment. Get the best equipment and they will be millionaires. Its pretty obvious now that equipment, while needed to some extent, is really one of the least important aspects to mining. Intelligence, common sense, and at least a basic understanding of geology and mining in general are FAR more important that having the best equipment. Todd has none of these things, which is why all his expensive trommels and such have netted him nothing but failure. You actually see this same sort of thing in photography (I am an architectural photographer). People think if they run out and spend as much money as they can on expensive lenses and expensive camera's that it will magically make their pictures light years better. Its a phallacy. More expensive camera's and lenses will make the image quality sharper, but they will not improve the quality of the pictures themselves. Todd would be far better off investing in a basic geology class. Having top of the line equipment is not going to make Todd and crew better miners and this has clearly been his approach to mining since day one and its clearly one of the reasons he has failed as dramtically as he has.
>>> Hunter 3/8/2014 8:16:47 AM
Ok. I've had it with all this Todd bashing. Let's face it, there wouldn't even be a show if it weren't for the Hoffman crew. As far as equipment goes, Todd is like Henry Ford and Christopher Columbus all tied into one very brave and courageous miner. He had the guts to try the turbo trammel and he had the stones to leave porcupine for the Klondike and the. Guyana. I'll bet you folks wouldn't have those big balls to go for it. Come to think of it, Todd reminds me of the Wright Brothers or Neal Armstrong or Captain Kirk. The courage to go where no man has gone before. The rest of the folks on GR are followers, not leaders. Todd goes to Porcupine, Dakota Fred goes to porcupine, Todd goes to the Klondike, Parker goes to the Klondike. Todd goes to Guyana, I'll bet you bucks one of those other pansies goes to Guyana. Get off the Hoffman's backs. They will triumph in the long run.

Hunter what do you mean by "The courage to go where no man has gone before???" There have been thousands there before the Hoffman idiots were. They are just reckless.

>>> Anonymous 3/12/2014 2:59:43 AM
Sorry Hunter bit I disagree 1000%. Using untested mining equipment doesnt make Todd smart and brave, it makes him foolish and stupid. Had he played it smart and used the same equipment everyone else uses, he wouldn't be sitting in the position he is in right now. As for the TV show, lol. As for the TV show, yes he started a TV show that became popular and sold it to Discovery channel. I am not critiquing Todd as a TV executive, I am critiquing Todd based on his actions and results as a MINER, which was the whole purpose of the show in the first place and in that regard he has been a complete and utter failure. He is the one who put himself in front of million of people. If you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. The bottom line - Todd Hoffman is an utter failure in the world of mining and the show should seriously consider moving on without him. I know quite a few people that stopped watching the show as they couldnt deal with show basically being one Todd Hoffman mishap after another. They wanted to watch a competitive mining show, not the Barnum & Bailey circus in a mining camp. The show is not what it once was and that is because of the Hoffmans.

I have found this to be a very entertaining show except for one thing. Those darned bleeps that keep sounding. I find it hard to follow the conversation. Couldn't they just do a silent bleep or something. I think I would find it easier to follow the conversation that way. I think I'll skip the program for awhile..give my ears a rest.

MOST EXPERIENCED & TALENTED MEN WILL AGREE THAT HAVING A KNOWLEDGEABLE WOMAN IN THE GROUP IS NOT ONLY A PLUS BUT A NECESSITY. I JUST LOST COMPLETE RESPECT FOR DUSTY, HE IS A LOT LIKE HIS DAD. JUST REALIZED THAT. IVE ALWAYS ROOTED FOR DUSTY, NO MORE & ANOTHER THING, I PRAY PARKER OFFERS HER A JOB. SHE IS A MUCH BETTER MACHINE OPERATOR THAN DUSTY EVER HAS BEEN &SHE ALWAYS HAD HIS BACK GOING UP AGAINST HIS DADDY...ALWAYS. I WISH YOU WELL MELODY, YOU DID A HELL OF A JOB FOR THOSE INGRATES!!!

Todd is an embarrassment to miners. A mining crew should follow his crew around and do the opposite of everything he says and does. they would get rich. Todd is bringing Dave down.
>>> KC, KC 2/22/2014 2:11:48 PM
There are so many things wrong with the Hoffman Crew. FIRST: YOU NEVER PRAY TO GOD FOR PERSONAL WEALTH! I believe that this is the largest of Jack & Todd's Many Mistakes. I could not believe when I heard that in the first episode & keep hearing it. I said to everyone in the room watching the show with me that they have just cursed themselves & I think everyone could agree 3 seasons later that is just what happened. They are complete idiots! I can't stand Jack saying "We are all going to be rich or we are all going to be millionaires" Todd has Got to be the laziest & most idiotic creature on the planet! I can't figure out how he gets men like Dave, Thurber,Mitch, Andy,Kevin to go along with him. Especially Dave. I would NEVER FOLLOW TODD ANYWHERE! I was so happy that Chris & Greg went with Parker. Jack hit the Diamond Jig on Accident. You could see it in his face & hear it in his voice. I shouldn't be shocked he lied about it & saying it was "Calculated" Embarrassed I'm sure. Parker is 18, he does overcompensate with his attitude toward older people but most 18 yr olds do when challenged on their opinions. Fred I could not stand as a person when he did what he did to get porcupine. I really like his crew. Last nite when the Glory Hole was caving in & he was yelling at Melody to stop so she didn't go in was the first time that I saw him really care about somebody else. He was frantic & the way he jumped out of the back hoe & ran up to her. My Opinion To Discovery: GET RID OF TODD & JACK. Dave Can Lead & Succeed With That Crew. One more thing, I agree with the others who have said it's so obvious how Dumb & Lazy Todd is just by looking at How Big He Is In A Hot Jungle For 5-6 Months. He is a slob & the only thing he does fast is get to The Kitchen To Eat. How else would he gain weight there?
>>> Tony, GA 2/24/2014 1:27:02 PM
Maybe next year Discovery will not bring Todd and Jack back. I can't stand either of them. I didn't like Parker and Fred in the beginning but now I find myself rooting for them. I think they are really trying while Todd and Jack are running off to all corners of the globe hoping someone will tell them where the gold is. They are disgusting. And their voices could break glass.
>>> greg, fonthill 2/27/2014 8:00:03 AM
The fact that so many are posting on the how frustrating and annoying todd Hoffman is shows how desparate discovery is to hang onto a one time hit show. they are grasping by making an hour of "the dirt" and will clearly struggle in upcoming seasons. hopefully todd Hoffman will just go away.
>>> gainaz, Tucson 3/13/2014 10:15:59 PM
i think it would be profitable to go through as much rock that went out the end of todds sluce. Id say there's a good amount of gold that simply washed out the end of those idiots wash plant. And why none of that crew bothered to ask about the value of the diamonds astounds me. I know little on gems but i do know most diamonds found are not gem quality but used for cutting.

Parker sure has shown all what hard work and a background in mining can do. Todd looks mickey mouse compared to Parker. Fred and his son also have a good work ethic and Fred has great knowledge . Hope Smith creek pans out for Parker and his brother and grampa Schanbel.Todd now has to eat his words about "the Kid" .The Kid found more gold in one season than the Hoffman clan has done in 4 seasons with less manpower.

>>> LisaInNM, Albuquerque 3/10/2014 6:15:16 PM
Why does everyone bash Parker for the help he gtts from Tony Beets and that he has some of Todd's old crew? Part of being successful is recognizing the areas where you need help and finding the best help you can. He certainly did that with Tony. Hoffman crew is wandering around the jungle calling a tour guide their gold expert. That worked out really well! As to Parker's crew it seems like the guys he has used for the last few seasons have supported him. Remsburg (and Cheeseman too for that matter)disagreed with everything Parker wanted to do that ended up finding them lots of gold. Remsburg may work hard but he is not the key to Paraker's success.
>>> S. Tucker, Loganville, GA 3/11/2014 11:46:43 AM
I love the show, but over time I've come to see Todd as just a con man and not a miner. He's great at coming up with "investors" to fund his operation, but he doesn't seem to know anything about mining and he isn't willing to learn. He has been given great advise from Tony Beets. Drill, Drill, Drill, and Todd ignores that. While Parker follows Tony's advise and strikes it rich. It seems Todd just loves being the boss and talking on his walkie talkie. He wants to tell people what to do without knowing himself. The blind leading the blind. It's frustrating watching him mess things up over and over again and I can't understand why his crew stays with him. He simply WILL NOT learn from his mistakes nor will he try to educate himself about his chosen field. Parker listens and learns. That's paying off for him. Fred and Dustin are doing well. One would think Todd would watch the show from time to time and see what we see. It's sad for the rest of the Hoffman crew that Todd seems to be dragging them into his "Dream" that looks more like a nightmare. And for someone who professes his faith so often, we all know what "fricken" is a substitute for and what you are really saying. Could yo clean it up Todd? I believe that you mean well, but again, educate yourself on what it is you want to do. You'll stand a better chance at success. Faith won't locate as much gold as research will. You have the opportunity to turn it around so stop doing what your doing. It isn't working. As for all the accusation flying around out there about stealing and drug use and whatever, I read a lot of this stuff and none of it seems to be consistent. So that tells me there is not truth to it. Don't just make an accusation with no foundation. If you going to state it as a fact, then back it up with proof. Otherwise keep it to yourself. Would you want someone to do that to you?

"The Dakota Boys just happened to have a harness and all the gear to go out on that line. OH PLEASE... SUCH A JOKE!!!" Are you kidding me? They would have been utter morons NOT to have that gear with them up in the mountains. All in all its roughly 5 pounds in equipment and can save a life up in the mountains. If those guys have any brains, which they obviously do, that equipment has a permanent spot in their packs when they are up in those area's. Clearly you have never done any sort of climbing or hiking in those kinds of conditions. That much is obvious. Don't get me wrong, your spot on in regards to the Hoffmans, but your just dead wrong on this one. You simply don't go up in those area's without a harness and a few lines of rope. Not to mention, thier entire plan was to drill cores in area's that required him to use a harness. Did you even watch that episode at all? As for the Hoffmans, this season was just an absolute joke. I can understand that they had a lot of stuff working against them, but when Todd switched from gold mining to searching for tiny itty bitty diamonds, I was absolutely flabbergasted and knew then that this guy was an utter joke. I could have told him those diamonds were absolute junk and I know next to nothing about diamonds, lol. They were down there to mine GOLD. The show is "GOLD RUSH", not "Itty Bitty Diamond Rush". That whole debacle was just an ebarassment and showed just how off base this guy really is. I dont care what help Parker had, the fact that he mined more gold in his FIRST season on his own, with half the crew and equipment that the hoffmans had, than the Hoffmans have in 3 seasons proves without question who belongs there and who doesn't. Like most people, I was a fan of the Hoffmans when this show started out and disiked Dakota Fred and Justin with a passion. Its amazing how the tables can turn. Now I cant stand Todd and crew and am rooting for Fred and Justin. Parker is the one who saved this entire season of Go

Like most people, I was a fan of the Hoffmans when this show started out and disiked Dakota Fred and Justin with a passion. Its amazing how the tables can turn. Now I cant stand Todd and crew and am rooting for Fred and Justin. Parker is the one who saved this entire season of Gold Rush and I was really happy to see him reach 1029 ounces. 1.4 million in gold in his first season mining on his own. Just an absolutely amazing story!! The pressure he was under was immense. You could clearly see it in those first episodes. Sure, he got help along the way, but that only gets you so far. In my opinion, he proved without question that he belongs with the big boys up there. He set a lofty goal, worked his butt off, and just wouldn't quit until he reached it. He should be proud of his success. If I were him, I would pour all the gold into a single pile, take pictures of it, autograph the pictures, and send them to Todd Hoffman. Maybe Todd can sell them on eBay to help finance his next disasterous season. As for the guy on here that named his kid after Todd, do your self a HUGE favor and change his name immediately. Its not to late to change your mind on such an AWFUL decision. When your kid learns who you named him after....well, that kind of thing can scar people for life. Why do that to your own kid? For the love of god, change the name as fast as humanely possible. You will thank me in the long run.
>>> OrangeCrush, Detroit 3/6/2014 9:10:22 PM
As for next season, I honestly think they should bring on a new crew and limit Todd's crew to half the screen time they got this year, maybe even by 75%. That is of course if you want the show to be about gold mining and not the Hoffman's ridiculous idea of mining. They are a joke, which means making them the focus of the show is in fact making the show a big joke. I understand that they started the show, and that they probbaly have a couple fans here and there, Discovery needs to put the show first, not the Hoffmans. If the show keeps going like it has been, it will be unwatchable in the next year or two. Get rid of the Hoffmans or significantly cut thier overall screen time. That is the only way to get this show back on top. Anyways, I think that about sums it up. Congrats to Parker and crew and to Fred and Justin and crew for a very successful season!! Not only were these crews successful, they also showed just how bad Hoffman's crew really is. That a nice bonus if I have ever seen one! Keep it up guys!!

Todd is compared to Henry Ford and Colombus? That's great. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he discovers a continent or events some major piece of engineering to impact society! Wrong. He's a fat bastard that is rarely ever appearing on camera anymore because he's sleeping and waiting for planes to parachute in skids of fast food to inhale. Seems as though everyone but Todd is doing work, it must be great to epically fail at the expense of others money. Even in season 3 when they did reasonably well, take it consideration they're expenses. They had pay for numerous pieces of equipment, investors, fuel, living expenses for 6 months and split what's left over with their crew of what it seemed like 12 guys. These idiots would of been lucky to take home $40k each. Parker had a crew a third of the size and found just as much gold. Todd is the furthest thing from a role model, people should at the very least do the opposite of this fat idiot.

David pieczynski, Alpena michigan 3/5/2014 7:43:52 AM
To demonstrate the stupidity of the Hoffman crew one only needs to examine their reaction to finding diamonds. Each time they found a few diamonds they acted like they had just hit the powerball lottery. Would the diamonds be enough to convince the claim owner to allow them to stay? Would the diamonds save the season? In the end, the diamonds were damn near worthless with a total value of next to nothing. The entire lot of diamonds found during the past season was worth roughly the value of one ounce of gold! Was Todd Hiffman really that stupid? Maybe. But, one has to question why Hoffman and his crew never bothered to ask about the value of the diamonds. Also, they never did answer the question about where all the gold went. When they pre tested the area, there was more gold than they had ever dreamed of finding. When they mined the same ground...no gold? What the heck happened? I believe they need to add Tony onto the show as a main character up in the Yukon as he is apparently somebody who knows what he is doing.. . Unlike the other cast of clowns.

Todd Hoffman and his entire crew, yes that includes Dave, are complete idiots. Anybody who would follow Todd Hoffman into a jungle to mine gold would be lucky to survive the experience. If you took a group of experienced equipment operators and put them on gold in Alaska with a million dollars worth of equipment, they would find a significant amount of gold if it was present on the claim. Any body who falls behind Todd Hoffman on a gold mining crew is foolish and putting their life in the hands of an idiot. What happened to all the gold in Sputh America? Remember all the test showed like 5x the gold present in Alaska! I swear you could sit Todd Hoffman on top of 100 million dollars worth of gold, and he would destroy all the equipment, get half his crew injured, and he would be lucky to find 5 ounces of gold through all the chaos.

who pass through stirring up the natives and locals that gets retaliated against. Before Harness tried to beat up the claim owner’s representative when he came out to personally report on the wisdom of continuing to allow the Hoffman’s to mine on his land, they’d already run off one Jim Dorsey, and made him the butt for all the frustration over Todd Hoffman’s ignorance and poor leadership skills. (Manipulation is not necessarily leadership.) Dorsey was a bit too soft for the lifestyle and had no skills but his rather sharp mind to offer, but the truth is his whining came about because he was the first to realize that Todd and Jack knew absolutely nothing about mining gold and his life’s savings was all down the toilet. Dorsey knew, for example, just enough to know that the money in any mining operation is made at the concentrating table–a table that should have been set up and tested on day-one and running all season to tweak into fine tune. Instead, in just one of dozens of proofs of the combined Hoffman ignorance and stupidity about mining and life in general, even though Dorsey was the only one who bothered to read the instructions, and free to spend the time to adjust the table, Jack in particular deemed this to be a waste of time and preferred to hand-pan some several tons of buckets. Likewise, one of the reasons Dorsey had so much trouble, apart from Jack’s idiotic jerking it around instead of making gradual adjustments, was that both Jack and Todd bought and packed in a wavetable, entirely the wrong sort of concentration table for the claim and soils. When he was finally at wits end, Dorsey became the object of scorn and abuse by these “good Christians” and Harness was ready to shoot him. Dorsey fled leaving the local authorities with not a very pretty picture of the Hoffman camp. This picture of tragic, emotional idiocy, as I say, was also confirmed by Fred Hurt, who had been sent by the mine’s owner, so not only did Fred report back to the owner, b

Todd Hoffman is a manipulative sociopath. He is a know-nothing. Jack Hoffman, is a mildly demented old morphine addict who played a very minor role in the gold craze of the late 70's to mid-80's. Skills: Todd: BS Artist. Has apparently made a lifestyle out of manipulating religious, family and friendship connections to self-promote various grandiose projects. Jack: Has a basic understanding of how an excavator works, but not the slightest clue about even rudimentary engineering or physics connected to actual excavation. Jack has a basic familiarity with panning, the most rudimentary gold mining skill that is normally a testing and prospecting tool, not a means of production. Little boys who read Westerns think grizzled old prospectors actually mine gold with a pan. The main Hoffman accomplishments: Todd–has a talent for losing claims, excavating the wrong claims, the wrong areas on own claims, buying nonexistent claims on the internet, and when finally getting a workable claim, doesn’t know enough not to be telling the claim owner’s man to piss off when he is sent out to investigate the Hoffman crew’s obvious lack of knowledge, experience, performance, or talent in gold mining. Jack–spends most of his time through all three seasons so far, undermining himself while mindlessly digging holes with all the skill and intelligence of a toddler in a sandbox. While much was made of Jack for his genius in finding a small amount of gold in his “glory hole,” the fact is, anyone digging down to bedrock anywhere would probably find some amount of gold on that claim. The reason for investigation of Hoffmann’s old claim at Porcupine Creek? Parker Schnabel’s operation as well? That’s clearly down to Todd and Jack Hoffman’s shamefully ignorant television exposure on national and international television making the entire mining industry look like a circus run by mentally and emotionally challenged children. In the west, it’s usually the wagon train following the arse-holes w

Parker is using key members of Todd's crew and the wash plant to suck his gold from the Klondike(Having Tony Beets in your corner is not too bad either) The Dakota boys have mined nearly all their gold from a spot chosen by Jack in the first season.

The tiny diamonds the Hoffmans found can't be worth more than 100.00 for all of them. They are specks of diamonds. How do they think they are going to make money. Unless they find a 10 carat instead of 1/100th carat diamonds they are finding then they better hope the show pays all their expenses and then for their wasted time.

The Hoffmans are a joke, but the worst thing is that they took a valuable and experienced miner named Dave Turnin and made him into a cheerleader. Turin needs to go home and get back to real work in hhis quarry.

Watching the show has become a total waist of time. We wait for Friday to come to see the "New" show. By the time 45 minutes have passed we have seen nothing new, just re-hash of past shows and 10, three minute commercials. Then we get 15 seconds of "teaser" and another commercial. I am discussed. This show has run it's course!

I need to say something here. Its almost to the point to where I cannot watch this show anymore. I am so sick of the Hoffman crew that I find myself fast forwarding through their segments of the show. It always goes like this; Boy we're gonna do it this year. Oh no, our equipment is broke. We fixed it. Now were in business. Not finding gold. Our equipment is stuck in the mud. Equipment recovered. Now we're going to find gold. Todd on radio, we find anything yet, crew, no sir not yet but we're close. 10-4 blah blah blah scripted crap trying to sound official. Todd, I messed up...Well, no s*%#! Same Hoffman crap, different season....I hope 'if' there is a next season of Gold Rush they find someone to replace the Hoffman's. If not I would rather the show just go away. The Hoffman Crew aka The Bad News Bears!

I have never missed an episode of Gold Rush. The whole Hoffman experience in South America has gotten all too boring. Who wants to watch disaster after disaster every single week? Plus, since when did Dave become such a pessimist and quitter? He was my favorite guy on the show and all of a sudden this season, he turned into a whiner and I think the guy has quit or threated to quit at least 5 times. My recommendation for next season is for the producers to drop the Hoffman crew and pick up Tony's crew up north. I want to watch some guys who know what their doing who are actually finding gold. That's what makes it exciting. I hope Parker and Fred make millions, and that the producers finally understand that people want to see sione success...not failures every week. Maybe give Dave his own crew and send him up north and see what happens.
>>> Tony, Ga 1/23/2014 6:12:31 PM
I completely agree with you. I am sick of Dave whining and quitting. I can't blame him too much though because Todd is a JOKE!!! Producers, please get rid of this crew. Put Tony's crew on and lets see how people get gold, not failures like Todd's crew. I can't stand Parker's mouth, but at least he is trying. He don't listen to his crew and take good advice but he is making huge progress. Give Dave a crew, maybe he will be happier and do much better than Todd. GET RID OF TODD!!!

First I love gold rush. Parker, i hope, becomes a millionare and follows in Tony's footsteps. Todd on the other hand is a complete moron and i cant wait until Dave starts his own crew and mopes up the gold that todd always seems to miss. But the one thing that makes my blood boil is that their in the jungle, obviously humans have used track machines in swamps or muddy landscapes before. Would you think he has ever heard of swamp tracks on a smaller loader before? We have machines that operate in swamps with 6-12 inches of water on top of 2 feet of muck that you cant even walk on. Yet they are able to drive on and clear the mud for access to the swamp for waterfoul hunting. The right machine for the right job and anything is possible.

Todd Hoffman is on a wild goose chase for diamonds. Diamonds? I thought he was gold mining! What's next? Looking for garnets when they can't find any more diamonds? The show fails to tell us how much each diamond he finds is worth. I almost rolled over on the ground laughing when I saw a clip for next week of Jack tipping over the diamond wash plant with the excavator. He looked out of it. These guys are pathetic. I strongly suggest that Todd should dredge in Bering Sea along with the other high-drama clowns in Nome. Seems dredging is where the gold is.

I'm tired of the constant talk about becoming financially ruined. Todd says he's out 500K. Does he plan to just throw his equipment away? Todd purchases inappropriate equipment, gets the crew to pray for gold and then holds Dave responsible for all the work. The site testing methods are totally inline with the results experienced. "We need $50 yard dirt, Oops, I mean $30 a yard, or was that $20 yard. Todd's mining experts have him working a site that's already been played out. Really, with no reporting integrity to the actual financial circumstances of the enterprise and no business plan that is followed, how can the show not become tedious? The show plan seems to be, make a ridiculous plan, do some infantile tests, buy bigger equipment, argue with crew, argue with cameramen, claim financial disaster, oh and repeatedly stupidly destroy equipment with inappropriate usage.

Toad then lets them know he and pillhead are leaving the country, no explanation, and when he gets back he wants 20 thousand in gold mined and processed. Turin is vastly over-rated. He must be one hell of a lot dumber than Toad to keep putting up with Toad reckless behavior.

These episodes in Guyana are totally ridiculous and unbelievable. Everything goes wrong but somehow gets fixed just in the nick of time. No locals on the team, that's a good idea, sure. Guys out in the jungle in t-shirts with malaria mosquitoes all around. The dozer fuel filter is plugged and the guy who owns the barge is about to leave with the trommel on it but wait, miraculously a helicopter shows up with new filters. What do these producers take people for, gullible fools?

I want to thank each and every one of your comments. It made my day. I no longer watch the show because of the Hoffmans. Especially after the episode where Todd made the film crew follow him to find a different claim in the jungle. While they were en route one of the cars rolled off the road. Afyerwards when they were filming later on Todd called the producer an idiot and lazy for not doing something. I'm sick and tired of Todd. He has increasingly became a bigger prick and we have yet to see him score anything above a nasty attitude and drug problem

Wtf happened to season 4? Last i seen they were prospecting and now nothing for a month. Can't find no info anywhere on when it will return. Has anyone herd or seen anything about when it will return. Pretty lame they show like 3 episodes and then just leave everyone in dark about when it will return. Way to get you ratings up dumbasses.

I love the show...but I can't handle That fat f'n Todd Hoffman. Why do they have the dumbest person on the crew "thinking" and making stupid decisions? Todd should be the pack horse and in charge of digging and cleaning the latrines. Dave is the one that should be making the decisions. Thank God for the mute button, when Todd opens his cockhole at least I can hit the "mute"

This season is horrible so far. Just these fools following Todd around with his half wit father on a random goose chase. Then all the fricken, fricken, fricken,...shut the hell up. The most pathetic part is every time they are allowed to prospect Todd exclaims "I've got a good feeling about this ground",....completely groundless speculation,..Todd please shut up you idiot !!!

What's with the behind the scenes show? Nobody cares about how hadrd it is for the camera crew to film the show, and all of Christo's issues. You tried this crap last year too and it was your lowest rated episode. How many times until you learn no one except the crew's family wants to see that stuff. Guys, it's your job. Just do it and stop trying to be TV stars. Christo, same goes for you. If you want to be a TV star then just go and produce the Christo Show. Stay off of Gold Rush. Nobody cares about you, your just the guy who signs the checks. Deal with it. Just stick with what the show is, guys mining gold.

I think we saw how the Hoffman's are basically scamming their workers in that last episode. Todd buys equipment and that is added to the expenses. The workers are paid on what money they make above and beyond the expenses. Yet who keeps the equipment? The Hoffman's! The workers get a little bottle of gold while Todd ends up owning a fleet of expensive construction equipment. That is why Todd moves every season and buys new equipment that is paid for on the backs on the workers labor. Meanwhile Todd sells the old equipment to someone like Parker and pockets the money. JMHO

I heard Todd try to apologize to the camera crew for breaking his train of though, I think his train must be a z scale he is not a smart person. And the prayers are a scam I also do not believe God works that way at all to pray for riches ridiculous, those prayers are falling on deaf ears. I watched him at the end of the season completely whacked out on cocaine what a hypocrite. Cannot figure why Turin follows him anywhere. He is not right.

You can’t base your whole mining operation on one little nugget found in one little spot. Todd was supposed to drill holes in a grid pattern across the property before he mines, as per Tony Beets. I guess Todd forgot about that. Todd, how are you going to get all your equipment AND TRAILER to the mine? The roads are impassable. It’s all mud. The creek needs a culvert. The road needs lots of crushed rock. Dave Turin, you better jump ship. This doesn’t look good. Todd would be better off buying $1 million in gold coins rather than sinking $1 million into this foolish Guyana operation. Jack: “Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gold.” Christians do not want to be rich. Christians are satisfied with what they have.

Yup, Todd is an idiot as far as mining goes and Jack is a morphine addict. I can't for the life of me understand how their crew can trust and follow them, especially Turin. He seems like he should be leading the crew if he could get his head in the right place.... actually, I was expecting Turin would quit the Hoffman crew and start his own crew this season.....after all, he got all th gold last season while Todd screwed around with an expensive piece of crap trommel and piss off his investor. Also, I find the prayers to God to be pretentious and balsfemous BS He's a conman using religion on these people.... Just speaking my opinion and I mean no offense to anyone. I just don't believe God works that way.....

Talk about a bunch of losers. They ought to give up trying to get something for nothing and try a real job like the rest of us. If you're going to pray at the end of each show, stop saying "frickin" every other word, that would go a long way to show real reverence to god.

It would make one hell of an episode of Dirty Jobs. Mike's wisecracks would be priceless. Do wonders for the ratings I'm sure.

If they had made any money up north they wouldn't have left. Just like people that say they always win in Vegas, and I always ask them why did you leave? Nobody walks away from finding free money.

The fricken Twitter comments are so annoying. They block out 10% of the screen and are nothing but a moronic stream of consciousness from attention starved children. They add ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to the show. How long is this crap going to go on?

So this whole season is going to be about watching these yahoo's roam around South America looking at gold claims rather than actually working a gold claim?? It's a travel show now? Shouldn't this be on the Travel Channel? I love how no matter how remote the claim is and no matter how hard it is for them to get there - trekking through deep mud, quicksand, rushing rivers, etc. etc., somehow there's always a frikkin' excavator waiting for them. They could barely get in by foot but there's an excavator sitting there waiting for them???? Ya!! Totally realistic!!!

FALCON, Not Alask'r nor Peru 8/2/2013 6:32:25 PM
Unbelievable - Toad and Christof had to address the cokehead and douche issue in the very few first minutes. And they both lied. Toad claims that he has a sinus issue that needs surgery - how do you fix the *yipes* from being on so much coke that your head is spinning in circles? Christof and Discovery deserve this anchor around their necks. Can't wait to hear about Toad's lies - never mind the mining - they don't do that - but here is a chance to watch a total loser and his loser father screw up some more because they are losers on drugs. American only watched to see one of these morons stumble onto a massive nugget, now where watching to see that meathead have a coronary.

I can't believe that Christof has a huge fag crush on floppity coke head Todd. What's the deal here. I didn't think I would be back here making any more comments - but this is insane. You take a huge coke head and plop him down in South America. Who's idea was this? Toad's or Christof's? And where is Pillhead Jack going to get all his pills? It's hard to believe that after the season finale where Cokehead Toad was wired out of his mind that Discovery had this morons back. A better show would have been Toad in a rehab and talking about why he paid a thousand dollars a gram in Alask'r. At any rate - this show is homos on drugs and the fags that want to lick ass in those little man-caves.
