I think Discovery pays Todd to make retarded decisions. There wouldn't be much of a show if everyday was, "So we got a few more ounces and everything is running smoothly." Him ripping the wash plant out and Dave somehow managing to test drill the wrong plot of land seem kind of like staged disasters to me.

It's a reality tv show...... The people in the show get no money, only if they start doing commercials

From what I've searched and read online, the best places would be northern cali, but I have heard about big bear. Like you said, maybe a good place to get my feet wet

No, the grey area between documentary and reality TV is what separates paychecks from no paychecks. Snooki made 30k per episode. Still sure about that?

That is about 60K/episode too much

They get paid by Discovery. It's not like Discovery just showed up on a random gold mine, shot an episode, then left. This is a show completely about these guys. Discovery is making a tidy profit off of it and the cast is entitled to some of it.

Do you honestly think that the crab fisherman, the american chopper guys, and the rest of them are allowing Discovery to shoot them and rake in massive rating profits without getting a cut?

For me I think they shouldn't get paid, so yes I guess I do believe they get no payment from the said shows, but I'm sure I can be wrong. I swear I watched an episode of After the Catch where a fan asked if they get any compensation from discovery and they said no.

I think it's pretty obvious Discovery is bank rolling the Hoffman portion of Gold Rush.

First season they laid out like 250k for equipment and everything. Supposedly everyone except Dave was down on their luck unemployed and about to be foreclosed on. After season one they got, what, 10k in gold? How did anyone stay afloat then? 240k in the whole no jobs and yet they somehow manage to scrape up enough to not only give season 2 a go, but get bigger equipment...

Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy watching the show. I just realize that it's not really real (if that makes any sense).
