Discovery Channel’s Gold Rush has reinforced the notion that there really is a fortune in the hills of America. After four seasons the show has become the #1 rated program on Discovery by showing the real life ups and downs of mining for gold. Season 4’s biggest star had to be eighteen year old Parker Schnabel. Parker left on a mission to bring home $1 million dollars worth of gold, and blew expectations away when he presented his $1.4 million haul to his proud Grandfather. Parker’s story is the kind of thing that could make any young man wonder why they aren’t leasing a backhoe and heading out to the middle of nowhere.
Tonight on Discovery is a special 3 hours devoted to the biggest moments in season 4 of Gold Rush, and sneak peaks at season 5 that kicks off in October. The first block is a two hour retrospective titled Parker’s Take. Here’s the show’s description from Discovery.
“Parker’s Take,” a 2-hour special, where Parker will look back at the end of season 4 where he raked in an epic 1,000 ounces of gold. Parker will dish out stories about what went on while filming these episodes and will also answer burning questions from fans.
Parker is the new face of Gold Rush, but he will only be on top if he can increase his haul in season 5. Will a $2 million dollar goal be in his future? One thing is for sure is that you can’t ever count out Parker when it comes to finding that elusive gold. Here’s a clip from tonight’s show.
Following Parker’s Take is a hour long countdown of the top moments from season 4 titled Heroes and Zeroes. It’s a great way to get back into the swing of things before the season 5 premiere. All together it is quite a bounty for fans of Gold Rush tonight on Discovery Channel. Viewers can get some never before seen clips and takes on the show, plus catch a glimpse or two at what’s coming up in the brand new season.
