Gold Rush Spoilers: Gene Cheeseman Back – Will He Stay This Time?

Rick Ness is on the hunt for big nuggets to save his season and called in gold hunting guru Gene Cheeseman. But will this pinch hitter last? Rick tapped Gene Cheeseman to come as a last-ditch effort to save the season and right off the bat, Gene made a big difference at the weigh-in.

Yet, longtime Gold Rush watchers know that Parker Schnabel and Gene Cheeseman have quite the history. Because, Gene didn’t like working for a young turk like Parker Schnabel. Although, Gene was a problem solver for Parker Schnabel and bailed him out of some tight spots.

Then, Gene Cheeseman bounced over to Tony Beets. However, Gene disappeared on Tony after a Gold Rush season. Back then, Gene wasn’t happy with the tugboat assignment and then walked away. Rumor had it there was a contract issue.

Parker Schnabel Brings Friend With No Experience – Will That Blow Up in His Face?

Also on the next Gold Rush episode, Parker Schnabel takes a gamble that may not pay off. He brings in a greenhorn to help out. With Parker’s split crew strategy, he’s stretched thin. So, bringing in more people makes sense. But, is someone with no experience the answer?
