    I hope its parker and his grandpa that hits the mother load. They are the only ones who truly have a good heart and deserve it.

    Todd is an arrogaunt bully and Fred well so many bad things to say about him no sense everyone see's it. Karma gets him all the time. :D

    Parker and his grandpa are the only reason we watch. They could do away with Todd and Fred all together.

    People like kindness we deal with enough jerks like todd and fred everyday we dont want to see them on tv. Best of wishes parker.

    Dont let men like fred bring you down. And fred and Todd Karma is watching ......

    Whether they are allowed to talk about it or not all these people are getting paid to do this show. Dont let them fool ya on how little they made. Todd was quoted online saying that getting paid to do the show was the real gold mine.

    Just remember that Todd now has to answer to his Dallas investors. This, unfortunately, forces Todd to act as a business man more so than an amatuer mining for gold with his dad and buddies. The bottom line now has to take precedence. He may appear to be a bully, but I think he's just trying to conserve the budget.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you on Parker and Fred, and like I said before, I would like to see Todd get his 1,000 oz but would prefer the mother lode go to Parker. Fred can go home empty-handed, for all I care.

    Just think what if Discovery Channel has misled everyone. The season ends with no one hitting the mother load?

    After last nights show, it appears to be heading that way.

    It's a thought, but I wouldn't put anything on it.

    Why would they sully their reputation with a gimmick like this? Surely, the PR damage and loss of future viewership would be significant.

    I wonder why they cannot use explosives to get through the 15 foot overburden?

    The problem is not getting through the overburden, the material thaws and freezes when it's moved and the 20' + hole they dig will be too difficult to work in. The sides will constantly fall in and it will be a big mud hole. Explosives may blow a hole in the ground but the material still needs to be handled and it would be much harder to handle when the site looks like a bomb went off. ;)

    It's a good thing that this show is about entertainment and not actual gold mining. The drama created by poor decision making is about a half a step above The Jerry Springer Show.

    Makes me wish Discovery would find a competent mining team and pit them against everyone else just to completely crush them all with zero drama during their operation.

    Aside from that it seems clear Parker is going to be the one to hit it big. I think the Hoffman team is just going to straight up lose their investors mid season.

    I agree with that. If Parker can get 25 oz in about three days of work, he should clear 100s of ounces if he can get over his cash flow problem.

    Dakota Fred just kills me. After raising a stink over the bridge and losing his excavator, he might have gotten help from Parker if Fred hadn't burned his bridges (figuratively!) when Parker had need of that electrical panel.

    Fred's greed will kill his season.

    I feel sorry for Dave at Indian RIver. He is hard working and just had bad luck on getting paydirt. If the cut fails, then I don't see why they don't move it to Quartz Creek or move paydirt to Indian River from QC. But that would be beyond Todd's imagination. He's lost three weeks and could have had QC's dirt run at IR. There is still the drama when the wonder-Trammel arrives and it is worse at collecting gold than Old Blue. By the time he figures it all out, the season will be over.

    I feel like that one guy in Parker's crew was planted there by Discovery to cause drama. It's so weird seeing all these men take orders from a teen.

    He is the one that is paying them :)

    And in the newest commercial for Discovery channel Mega week? It says something like find out who hits the Mother Load on Dec 14th.

    I really believe it has to be the Hoffman crew because of the investors ultimatum to produce at least 100 oz's of GOLD in 3 weeks time or they will pull the plug on the Hoffman's crew.

    I suppose it's anybodys guess who finds the mother lode.

    Who deserves it? IMHO, Parker :icon_hroc or Todd :yesman: , in that order.

    Fred? I'd give him the time of day :zzz: , but that's about it.

    Best moment of the season so far is when Fred falls on his face walking through the snow. That was pre-karma.

    Dakota Fred is just someone you love to hate! His son could be a nice guy and is Fred's one redeeming act in life.

    Looks like Dakota Fred might be the one to hit it big if that ancient waterfall is real. I don't want him to be one hit it big. :(

    It's funny and I thought I would never say this, but Dakota Fred is starting to grow on me. I realize I gained way more respect for him over the past few weeks because of his Ingenuity with solving many breakdowns with old equipment.


    Oh BTW
    I still hope the 2 Hoffman teams are the Mother load strikers.....

    And what's up with Parker, he is being a brat lately
