Parker Schnabel Net Worth & Salary; How much is Parker from Gold Rush worth?
Parker Schnabel is the young prodigy who became one of the biggest gold miners to be famous around the world. Schnabel’s grandfather, John Schnabel, was the original leading gold miner and the owner of Big Nugget Mine in Porcupine Creek, Alaska. While John was the main star in season 1, we did see little 15-year-old Parker Schnabel guest-star in some episodes.
Little did we know, Parker Schnabel was a prodigy in the making that was accompanying his grandfather to the gold mine since he was five years old. Born on July 22, 1994, Parker became a permanent ‘Gold Rush’ cast since season 2, overtaking the operations of his grandfather’s mine. By 18 years old, Schnabel was leasing grounds from co-star and gold mining legend, Tony Beets, and by 24 years old, he had mined over $13 million worth of gold in total.
Sadly, Parker’s grandfather, mentor, and ‘Gold Rush’ cast for over six seasons passed away on March 18, 2016, in his sleep. The very next season of Gold Rush was all about Parker Schnabel dedicating it to his grandfather, who had been by his side throughout his career until then.
It is no surprise how Parker Schnabel’s net worth is approximately $8 million. Even this estimation was done way back in 2012, so in 2020, it must have certainly grown larger while some sources place her net worth at around $9 million while many others estimate it at a much higher at an approximate of $10 million.
Parker Schnabel’s Girlfriend, Ashley
Parker Schnabel’s parents are Nancy Schnabel and Roger Schnabel. You might know his father very well as he frequently. Parker Schnabel’s dating life is pretty secretive, but we got to see his girlfriend, Ashley Youle, in Gold Rush. Schnabel met his girlfriend in one of his favorite vacation destination, Australia. However, the two called it quits after over two years of relationship.
Tony Beets Net Worth & Salary
Tony Beets is a gold miner of the legendary scale in Klondike, Alaska. In the first seasons, we see him merely as a mentor to the mine owner who leases his land to Parker Schnabel, but he is also like a rival to him. Every year the two try to upstage each other.
A man born in Holland brought up in a farm and who lives with his family in Arizona when he is not mining; Tony Beets is full of surprises. However, when it comes down to business, Tony Beets can get mean to the bone. He has an apparent salary of approximately $25,000 per episode on the show. So, it is really not that surprising to learn that Tony Beets’ net worth back in 2013 was around $15 million.
What do you expect out of a man who owns multiple mines, including his most recent one in Clear Creek, he bought for over $1 million? As of 2020, sources estimate his net worth may already have become an unbelievable amount of $18 million.
Todd Hoffman’s Net Worth and Salary
Todd Hoffman was Parker Schnabel’s right-hand man for the most part of the series. He was the lead foreman of the crew and even led second expeditions for Schnabel or temporarily become the leader in his absence. Like many of his fans, Todd Hoffman agrees that he can efficiently work for himself, so after eight seasons, he left the show in season 8.
Yes, one of the original cast members, Todd Hoffman, left the show after an unbeaten run as both a gold miner and reality TV star as a Gold Rush cast. However, it may not be over yet as Hoffman may just be coming out of his boss Parker Schnabel’s shadow. He has always talked about working for himself, and there wasn’t a better time than this.

What is He Doing Now?
It might not be over for him just yet as he is in talks with Thom Beers, an executive producer of another hit discovery show ‘Bering Sea Gold’ for a new reality show project. Although the entire project is still just a concept, you can guess what its title will be. Hoffman also said that while he did not promise anything if it comes to pass, the show’s title will be ‘Greenhorn Gold.’
Todd Hoffman’s Net Worth
Todd Hoffman’s net worth the last time we did a review of was approximately $7 million as of 2011. Since then, no official accounts of his net worth exist. However, as of 2020, since his departure from the reality show, we estimate his net worth may have declined. Many outlets will agree with us on this, but at the same time, while someplace his net worth to be around $5 million, others estimate it to much less significant amount of approximately $500,000.
We ourselves think it is approximately $5 million as well. Todd Hoffman may not be a reality star for now, but his new project is in the works. The Sandy, Oregon native who was born on April 12, 1969, is currently also focusing on his music career. He has many singles out like ‘Simple Man’ while he also releases his music as well as song covers on his YouTube Channel that has over 122k subscribers.

Jack Hoffman’s Net Worth and Salary
It is not possible we talk about Todd Hoffman without talking about his father, Jack Hoffman, who worked with his son throughout his time in ‘Gold Rush.’ Even his grandson or Todd’s son, Hunter, was in their crew, making it indeed the family business. Jack Hoffman was a miner 25 years ago, and now with his son was revisiting his old dreams and career.
At 72 years of age, Hoffman is more likely to be complaining than working, but you got to give it to the old man. A former military man but also a religious one, Jack does not give up the mining life even if it kills him. Instead in his elderly age, he has helped or at least been a witness to his son’s crew pulling out over 6,000 ounces of gold.
By calculation, Jack and his crew are responsible for unearthing more than $20 million worth of gold. While many sources have directly used that to calculate Jack Hoffman’s net worth as around $5 million, we doubt his net worth will equal that of his son, who is more in the prime of his career. We estimate Jack Hoffman’s net worth to be more accurately around $1.5 million as of 2020.
Dave Turin’s Net Worth and Salary
Dave Turin was another trusty member of the Parker Schnabel’s crew and good friend of Todd Hoffman. Born on April 29, 1959, in Oregon, Turin ran his family’s quarry for 30 years with his father and three brothers. All this time, he became a master in dealing with heavy machinery, particularly the Bulldozer. He was brought in the first Gold Rush season as solely for expertise but took up the job to work for Hoffman’s crew since season 2.
Over the years, he got the name of ‘Bulldozer Dave.’ Before Hoffman, it was David Turin a season prior in season 5 who decided it was time to be his own man. So he quit Gold Rush, but fortunately for his fans, Turin was in contract for starring in his own Gold Rush spin-off series, ‘Gold Rush: Dave Turin’s Lost Mines‘ from 2019. The series already has a second season running right now since the beginning of 2020.
Dave Turin’s net worth in the beginning of 2012 was around $2 million. His net worth revisited for 2020 is approximately grown to $3 million. Now that he has his own show, we don’t doubt such a sudden increase in his net worth.
Chris Doumitt’s Net Worth and Salary
Chris Doumitt is another OG member of the ‘Gold Rush’ cast, which is really surprising considering how he became a gold miner not so long before the start of the show. Doumitt is actually a carpenter, a profession he had followed for over 25 years. He came to Klondike to build a cabin for co-star Greg Remsburg but somehow decided to stay and become a gold miner.
His hard work ethic as a carpenter and being brought up in a farm made him a perfect fit for the time. In no time, he was competing with and against the rest of the cast to mine vast amounts of gold. Thus, he is one of the very few consecutive members of the Gold Rush cast since its inception. His dedication and hard work did prove to be rewarding as Chris Doumitt’s net worth as of 2020 are approximately $500,000.
Chris Doumitt’s earning; one source even has made claims to be over $1.2 million from the show. If that is true, Chris Doumitt may very well be a millionaire. However, so far, our estimation of his net worth tells a different tale, but we should not doubt a high net worth and salary of a man who has had great success working for first Todd Hoffman and then Parker Schnabel in the show.
Greg Remsburg Net Worth and Salary
Greg Remsburg was one of the oldest friends of Todd Hoffman, considering they knew each other in high school and was not only in the basketball team but also were locker neighbors. However, Greg came into Hoffman’s crew under challenging circumstances. He was under unemployment, and it could not be a hit or a miss with the ‘Gold Rush.’ No wonder there was always conflict among the Hoffman crew, and even Todd and Greg hit the wall at the end of season 3.
After that, Greg would return to season 4, joining Parker Schnabel’s team and then wholly quitting the show in season 5. We don’t know what happened to Greg Remsburg since, but he still has enough TV credits to hold a distinguishable net worth. Greg Remsburg’s net worth in 2014 was just $400,000, but today his net worth is approximately over $1 million. It is no surprise for a person whose salary is over $30,000 per episode.
“Dakota” Fred Hurt Net Worth and Salary
Fred Hurt, or as he is famous, Dakota Fred, was another one of the original ‘Gold Rush’ cast. In season1, he was with the Hoffman group, but since season 2, Dakota Fred began working independently with a crew of his own. Among his team was his own son, Dustin Hurt.
Along with his appearance on season 1 through 5, Dakota Fred also was a leading star of the mid-season series ‘Gold Rush: White Waters. He would not return for season 6 of Gold Rush and instead focus on his own reality series, ‘All the Glitters.’ While sources place Dakota Fred’s net worth at approximately $6 million, this was way back in 2012. His net worth with his own new show and all should be roughly $7 million.
