The latest season of “Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail” just finished airing on Discovery and the crew let fans in on some of the best behind-the-scenes moments. The celebration kicked off with a BBQ where the team was, of course, throwing some shrimp on the barbie. Parker and the rest of the gold miners spent 9 weeks in Australia and traveled over 6,000 miles across the continent in search of fortune.
Parker’s big push for the season was trying to secure a mining operation that would allow him to prospect year-around. Parker’s main operation is in Alaska, where the frigid winters make it impossible to run a mining operation. However, if he were to expand into Australia, he would be set up for mining in both climates.
“This is the best trip I’ve ever been on,” Parker told his crew.
He continued that, “What we saw was enough for me to take the next step. Somewhere out there is still a massive gold strike to be found.”
Part of Parker’s celebration dinner included a bottle of bubbly which he popped open and attempted to douse his friends. “Gold Rush” co-star Tyler Mahoney was able to dodge out of the champagne stream just in time as the rest of the table scrambled.
It was another fun moment between Tyler and Parker, as many fans noticed a strong connection between the gold prospectors throughout the season.
Tyler comes from a long line of gold prospectors and helped Parker navigate the vast Australian terrain while tapping into her knowledge of finding gold.
Tyler Mahoney certainly enjoyed her time on “Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail,” and has been posting about the season. After the season wrapped, she sent a message to fans to thank them for the support.
“That’s a wrap! Hope everyone enjoyed watching Parker’s trail this season, I loved being a part of it. The best trip with the best crew,” Tyler wrote on Instagram.
“You made the season extra enjoyable. Hope to see you more on tv with your adventures,” one fan told Tyler.
Another hopeful fan wrote that she hopes to see more of Tyler and Parker’s flourishing relationship:
“I loved the series would love to see you in more Tyler you and Parker have some good chemistry.”
We’ll have to wait and see what happens next season!
