The actors like Barry, Jarrod and of course Brandi make it fun to watch.
Now if you tell me Gold Rush is fake then it's game on!
Seems mostly kinda real, at least in the beginning. A rag-tag bunch of guys trying to scratch and claw their way to fortune with equipment held together with string and duct tape.
But now, they have top-of-the-line mega-equipment. And I'm sure the producers helped them locate a spot with a lot of potential and that would be good for filming.
