• Early life and family of Fred Hurt, born in North Dakota in 1943
• Spent early life fishing and took geology classes in college
• Career in commercial diving and construction, before gold mining
• Featured on "Gold Rush" and "All that Glitters"
• Has 15 direct descendants, net worth of $6 million

Fred Hurt has become famous due to the rise in popularity of the Discovery Channel show “Gold Rush”. He often appears alongside his son Dustin, but their relationship is fraught with tension. A modern-day treasure hunter, Hurt spends his time strategizing and mining to turn a magnificent profit. Despite his colorful personality and savvy business attitude, the show sometimes portrays him as a villain, but ultimately, he is only trying to make money. Fred Hurt was not always destined for a life in the mines, spending an errant youth fishing and avoiding school, his dedication and commitment has seen him become a significant name in the gold mining industry.

Early Life and Family

Fred Hurt was born on 10 July 1943, in North Dakota, USA. Due to his age, there has been very little focus on his family and parents. Fred Hurt’s first love and hobby was fishing; he could spend hours with his fishing rod at the waterside, to the exclusion of all else. At one point, his affection for the water and water activities, such as diving, led him to consider a career in marine biology. When Hurt realized that this was not exactly a lucrative career choice, he abandoned it in search of a career that set him up more comfortably.

Education

His dedication to fishing saw Hurt’s school grades suffer severely. By the time he entered high school, he realized that if he were to reach the place he wanted to, he would have to put more effort into his schoolwork.

He was able to improve his grades throughout high school, and Fred subsequently attended college for a time, taking several geology classes, which first introduced him to the idea of gold mining.

Career

Construction and Commercial Diving

Fred started his career as a commercial diver off the Gulf of Mexico. This combined his love of water with work, and provided him with skills that would later come in handy during his work as a gold miner. It was here that he learned about underwater construction, which is similar in some ways to the support systems required for underground mining, demolition, and salvage. He was so successful in this industry that he eventually owned his own construction company for 25 years.

Fred retired in 2004, but he was soon to realize that this was merely a transition from one industry to another.

Mining

The beginning of Hurt’s career in gold mining was not the glamour and success he had anticipated. In truth, he had several very unsuccessful seasons in Porcupine and Caribou Creek, which sent him searching for more promising frontiers. After spending time in Wyoming, Nevada and Montana with very little to show for his efforts, Hurt returned to Alaska in 2008, and here his luck began to change. Fred based himself by Little Squaw Lake, and played a significant role in the creation and operating of a gold processing plant, an experience that further solidified his dedication to his craft.

His potential was finally realized when he unearthed 600 ounces of gold in a single season at this new location.

Discovery Channel

The show “Gold Rush” premiered on 10 December 2010, and is still running to the present day. The show follows the careers of gold miners like Fred, documenting their battles and successes to the delight of worldwide audiences. Fred Hurt first appeared on the show in 2010, after he purchased the rights to a piece of land that another miner had failed to pay the lease on. That season he extracted 80.4 ounces of gold, which may have appeared measly to other miners, but was impressive when the manpower he had is taken into consideration. The next season, he and his newly formed team, The Dakota Boys, unearthed an impressive 803.02 ounces – almost ten times the amount of the previous season.

Fred Hurt branched out in 2015 to star in his own series, “All that Glitters”, which followed the exploits of Fred and his son Dustin as they attempted to find the crock of gold at the bottom of a waterfall. Hurt’s history with water served him well, and he went on to appear in another Discovery channel spin-off – “Gold Rush: White Water” – which ran from 2018 to 2020. The show explores the Dakota team’s unconventional gold mining using a technique called suction dredge diving.

There were disagreements with the directors of “Gold Rush”, which led to Fred and Dustin’s non-appearance on the show during the fifth season. This was largely due to the immense monetary toll that the show was having on Hurt’s life. Hurt explained to the public that ‘I am a working-class man,’ and that the show was putting him into financial deficit. He also addressed the directors of the show saying, ‘If you want a miner, call me…….if you want an Actor, pay me like one.’

Personal Life

Marriage

Fred Hurt’s personal life is eventful, and he has a large and growing family. He has been married three times for what he boasts is a collective 42 years. There is no information about his first wife, their relationship predating the show. His second wife Lorrayne Frances Leier Hurt was an avid collector, and loved to frequent auctions. The two were apparently deeply in love, and together contributed to several civic organizations. Lorrayne suffered from an unspecified illness that worsened over time, and eventually led to her death on 5 February 2015.

Fred married again, this time to long-time friend Jennifer Sheets, who had supported him as he grieved for his previous wife. The two married on 30 July 2016 at the Letnikof Caves, Haines, and their wedding was officiated by one of Hurt’s sons.

The two are apparently happily married and she often appears alongside her husband on the show, providing support for his team.

Children

Fred Hurt is older than he appears, and has 15 direct descendants – five great-grandchildren, six grandchildren, and four biological children. In addition, he has also become the stepfather to the children of his current wife, Jennifer Sheets. Hurt’s eldest daughter, Darla Matlock, lives and works in Texas where she is a real estate agent. The youngest daughter Shannon Hurt Rodrigue is married to Gary Rodrigue and also lives in Texas. Aside from his daughters, he has two sons, one of whom is a pastor and officiated at his latest wedding, but whose name remains unknown.

Perhaps most famous of all his children is his son Dustin Hurt; he started out working as a wildland firefighter for the Californian Forestry Service. He has always been exceptionally determined, and was known for his bravery on the scene of fires. Although he appears frequently in “Gold Rush” alongside his father, he still enjoys activities such as hiking and snowboarding. Dustin is married to Arin Alhum Hanson with whom he is expecting a child.

Appearance

Fred has aged exceptionally well, and people are often surprised when they hear his age. He underwent a dramatic weight loss due to the physical demands of the gold mining industry, and is now slim and muscular. Fred has a full head of white hair, and sometimes sports a mustache and beard.

Fred’s left leg is misshapen and 4ins shorter than his right leg; while he wears two inch inserts in his left boot, he is reluctant to share the story of what caused this, but which hasn’t stopped him from spurring on the speculation, and telling tall tales of what occurred, all of which he has confirmed as untrue.

Net Worth and Salary

By his own admission, Fred Hurt is not a rich man, but this is not to say that he does not live comfortably. While he has a net worth of $6 million, a significant portion of his funds go towards keeping his business afloat, funding mining expeditions, and on leasing land to mine. Financial difficulties are actually what led Fred Hurt to leave “Gold Rush”, which he felt was underpaying him for his efforts and appearances.

What happened to Bill Nye? Arrested? Drugs, Net Worth, Bio

Published

on

Recently it has been rumored that the scientist, engineer and TV host Bill Nye was arrested for manufacturing and distributing drugs. These speculations were originated by the satire website Huzlers, on which an article narrating Nye’s arrest for ‘allegedly selling and manufacturing illegal drugs such as marijuana, acid, and crystal meth’ was posted. In the article he was also accused of being responsible for the majority of the drug trafficking market in Los Angeles.

Despite the fact Huzlers has always been honest about its satirical and comical nature, some people on the internet have taken Bill Nye’s article out of context and have spread it as true. However, Bill Nye hasn’t been arrested or accused of such crimes.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CIG0_vln6NS/

Who is Bill Nye?

William Sanford ‘Bill’ Nye is an American communicator, mechanical engineer and TV personality, born on 27 November 1955 in Washington, DC USA. He’s widely known for his show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” on PBS.

Early Life

Bill Nye is the son of Jacqueline Jenkins and Edwin Darby Nye – he has a sister named Susan and a brother named Darby. William’s mother was a mathematician and psychologist who worked as a code breaker for the US government during World War II, in which his father Edwin also served as a contractor for the US armed forces.

During his childhood in Washington DC, William attended Lafayette Elementary School, and then started studying at Alice Deal Junior High, until he received a scholarship to attend Sidwell Friends, from where he matriculated in 1973.

William Nye then enrolled into Sibley School of Cornell University in New York, from where he graduated with a major in Mechanical Engineering. During his time in University, William took a class with Carl Sagan: ‘His classes were just fantastic’ said Nye in an interview – ‘If you saw the series “Cosmos”, his lectures were just like those television shows’.

Career

First Steps

Nye’s first job in the scientistic field was working for the Boeing Corporation, where he invented a suppressor tube for airplanes. He also worked for Sundstrand Data Control in Seattle, and tried to enter the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) training program, but was unsuccessful. Nye was a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and was a volunteer at the non-profit organization Pacific Science Center.

During his time in Seattle, Nye discovered his love for comedy by making impersonations of the actor Steve Martin, even winning a lookalike contest. It was then he decided to create his own stand-up comedy routine, while still working as an engineer. However, in 1986 he resolved to quit his job in Sundstrand to work full-time as a comedian.

“Almost Live!” & More

In 1986 Nye started working as a writer and actor for the show “Almost Live!”, and adopted the name Bill Nye. Although at the start he didn’t have a section in the show, he started by appearing in the program doing a science demonstration, after one of the guests cancelled their presentation. Nye’s segment turned out to be very successful, and led him to win an Emmy for it.

In 1989 he began hosting his own program, “Fabulous Wetlands” which was an educational series focused on showing Washington wetlands and ecosystems.

In addition, Bill Nye offered information about ecology and environmental preservation, explaining the topics with a sense of humor, which promptly set the show apart from other educational and scientific series of the time. Due to his success as a host, Bill Nye was invited to appear in Disney’s “All-New Mickey Mouse Club”.

Even before appearing on Disney, Bill Nye had always wanted to create a show for kids, an idea which was reinforced by an encounter he had with Carl Sagan in 1987. Sagan – who had hosted the highly successful “Cosmos” series – told him the series’ concept shouldn’t be about technology and engineering, as Nye had previously thought: ‘He said ‘Focus on pure science. Kids resonate to pure science rather than technology.’, and that turned out to be great advice’.

In 1991 Bill Nye appeared in a real-life segment of “Back to the Future: The Animated Series”. The series was short-lived though, as it ended in 1993.

Bill Nye The Science Guy

Next Bill Nye along with Ross Shafer, the National Science Foundation, Rabbit Ears Productions and Disney Television, created the show “Bill Nye The Science Guy”, in which Nye presented himself wearing a lab coat, showing experiments and offering science information and insights in a simple, entertaining way for kids.

The series resulted in a huge success, breaking records by becoming one of the most watched programs in its category, and winning 19 Emmy Awards during the five years it was on air. The series not only became a reference for children, but also caught the attention of adults.

“Bill Nye The Science Guy” was utilized in schools as an educational resource, and led Nye to publish several books based on it. His appearances in Walt Disney Parks and Ellen’s Energy Adventure were notable as well.

In 1998 the show came to an end, however, it deeply impacted not only television history, but it also changed the popular perception of science. In an interview in 2013 with Seattle Met, Bill Nye said he considered the program’s success as a result of its pioneering and original concept: ‘School curricula do follow us. We pulled it off. That’s why the show has stood the test of time, if you’re asking for a theory’.

The Eyes of Nye & More

After the success “The Science Guy”, Bill Nye wanted to talk about more in-depth topics.

Despite having created the concept of “The Eyes of Nye”, KCTS delayed its production and premier for years, as the company was unsure about the likely success of it. The project was bought by the American Public Television later in 2005, when the show was finally premiered. However, the series wasn’t very successful, and lasted only one season on air.

In the following years Nye, hosted the shows “100 Greatest Discoveries” and “Greatest Inventions With Bill Nye”, and made brief appearances in “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” and “The Climate Code”. In 2008 he hosted “Stuff Happens” of Planet Green, and worked alongside his fellow science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson in an episode of “Brain Storm”.

In 2016 Netflix premiered “Bill Nye Saves the World”, a series in which he explores a variety of scientific topics and its impact in people’s everyday life. The series was renewed for three seasons until its end in 2018.

Personal Life

Romantic Life

Bill Nye married Blair Tindall in 2006, though various weeks later he annulled the marriage due to Tindall’s allegedly disrespectful and abusive behaviour towards him, as she supposedly stole items from his house, damaged his propriety, and tried to defame him through emails. He ultimately obtained a restrictive order against her. There are no public details of Bill having any other romantic associations.

Political Views and Advocacy

Bill Nye has openly shown his approval for the Democrat Party, being a close consultant of the Obama administration, and openly supporting Joe Biden during his campaign for the Presidency in 2020.

During an episode of the podcast “Getting Curious” of Jonathan Van Ness, Nye also expressed his pre-occupation regarding Donald Trump’s administration and its negative ecological impact.

Net Worth

As of late 2020, Bill Nye has an estimated net worth of $8 million, which is largely as a result of his works as a TV show host and other media appearances.

Physical Appearance

Bill Nye is a man of white ethnicity – he has brownish-red hair and amber eyes. He’s 6ft 1in (1.85m) tall, but his current weight is unknown.

Interesting Facts

Bill Nye has made two appearances in the popular long-running sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”.

In 2018 he played baseball in the All-Star Legends event, organized by the National League.

He agrees to criminally charging people who would challenge the international climate change consensus: ‘as a taxpayer and voter, the introduction of this extreme doubt about climate change is affecting my quality of life as a public citizen’.

Although he doesn’t suffer from ataxia, his two siblings have been affected by this illness of the nervous system, inherited from their father’s family. This is the reason Bill Nye never had kids, as he’s afraid they would be affected by it.

The Untold Truth Of ‘The Last Alaskans’ Star – Bob Harte

Published

on

Bob Harte was an American trapper, hunter, fisherman and TV personality, born on 23 January 1951, in New Jersey USA. He was known for appearing in the reality TV show “The Last Alaskans” until his death in 2017.

Early Life

Bob was Vernon and Eleanor Harte’s only son. Growing up in Jersey City, he played baseball and was fascinated by outdoors activities such as hunting and fishing, developing a sense of independence from an early age. In his youth, Bob’s grandfather was in charge of teaching him construction skills, which he utilized later in life.

There’s not much information about Bob’s education, though it’s known he attended college for a short time, dropping out when he chose the Alaskan lifestyle instead.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BXB7XwSFPbz/

It’s known Bob was an avid motorcycle rider, experienced firearms holder and ‘plane pilot, though the exact time he learned those skills is uncertain.

Alaskan Adventures

First Years

It’s not certain when Bob became interested in the Alaskan lifestyle. However, his interest was certainly caught by books he read about it, leading him to move definitively to Southeast Alaska at 21 years of age. His first location was in a camping field near Wrangell, where he survived apparently trapping alone for a couple years.

Then he immersed himself into the north in Fort Yukon, setting his home in various places of the area. It was there that he became acquainted with various people with the same lifestyle, including one of his closest friends Heimo Kort, as he declared: ‘March of 1976 that’s when I first met Bob.

After I got into town there were seven of us trappers there, and we all loved hunting and trapping and so we had that in common’.

It’s suspected that during that time Bob met Nancy Becker, who would later become his wife.

Around 1977 and following an abandoned trap line, Bob found the place he would call home for the next 40 years in Brooks Range, an extension of the Rocky Mountains, mostly uninhabited. Harte set his own trap line in the area, exploring it and living off the land for decades.that

Mountain Cabin and Family

It’s uncertain exactly when Bob married Nancy Harte (neé Becker), though it’s known in 1984 they welcomed their first and only daughter, Talicia.

By this time Bob was settled in Brooks Range, the family lived separately and years passed until they finally moved in with him, along Nancy’s first son from a previous marriage named Steve.

Living with his family brought immense happiness to Bob, who recalled those times as his most precious memories: ‘Family is extremely important to me. I wouldn’t want to be somebody with nothing and I have something’.

In the early 1990s Bob Harte travelled to Russia, participating in a trappers exchange between US and the Eastern European countries. Especially proud of such an accomplishment, Harte trapped and hunted with Russian families with the intent to cut the cultural and political gap that had separated the two nations for decades.

Back in Alaska, Harte worked part time as a carpenter in Fairbanks. Unfortunately, his marriage with Nancy ended at a time undisclosed, but despite this his relationship with his daughter remained the same.

TV Debut – The Last Alaskans

Bob Harte’s debut in TV was in “The Last Alaskans”, a reality documentary series which premiered on 25 May 2015 on Animal Planet. The show is centered on various families living in diverse isolated areas of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the biggest natural shelter in the US. Although human occupation in this protected area was banned in 1980 by Government, to protect its delicate eco-system, seven people were granted occupation permits to remain living there.

“The Last Alaskans” was well received by viewers, who were not only impressed bythe  show’s production but also by its stars’ lifestyle and its portrayal, as Neil Genzlinger from The New York Times pointed out: ‘Unlike in other shows, here the quests for sustenance are presented merely as facts of life. The compelling part of the series is the why: why live like this? The answers vary, and though sometimes the subjects address the question directly, for the most part their reasons emerge only slowly, as the patient camera lets you get to know them.’

The show was renewed in 2016 for its second season, now to air on sibling network Discovery Channel. Bob Harte’s last appearance was in show’s third season, aired in 2017.

Personal Life

Daughter

Talicia Harte suffered a car accident in 2006, leaving her disabled at 22 years old, and requiring extensive hours of physical therapy. Her father Bob, who loved her intensely, did his best to support her afterwards: ‘My daughter is a lot like me. She is a survivor. She’s tough as nails. Talicia was a very active young woman but then she had an accident. She became disabled from some guy talking on his cell phone, going broadside right into her. I’m 64 years old. I don’t know how many years I have left but I’d like to provide for my daughter’, he recalled in an episode of “The Last Alaskans”.

Although Talicia’s romantic life and marital status is unknown, in 2016 she gave birth to Bob’s only granddaughter Cornella. He promised to build a cabin for them to live comfortably.

Health

Surviving by himself in an isolated place in Alaska, Bob Harte’s life was always at risk. However, even before committing his life to live in the wilderness, he defied death in various ways. Bob not only survived being run over on his motorcycle, and crashing his ‘plane twice, he was also lucky to live after shooting himself, and accidentally inundating his boat in freezing water.

His life was at stake again when he underwent brain surgery, and was diagnosed with cancer later in life. In each situation his friends and family’s joke about him having nine lives was proven true.

Death

After spending an entire day celebrating his life with his loved ones, in Fairbanks on 21 July 2017, Bob Harte died peacefully in his sleep at 66 years of age, after battling with cancer for years.

Advertisement

In 2018 Bob’s daughter Talicia and her mom Nancy gave an interview to Monsters And Critics, guiding a tour through his cabin in the mountains while talking on their experience handling his death.

Nancy also offered a heartfelt reflection on his departure: ‘He established his home here and he loved it here. He and his dogs were here… he’s a part of this whole area. It’s not an ownership ‘his,’ he’s a part of it. He’s just a living entity with the land, with everything here. So it was his life. It was his joy, his delight and where he found peace and happiness was right here… it was Bob.’

Net Worth

Bob Harte’s estimated net worth was $600.000 at the time of his death, as a result of his appearances in TV series “The Last Alaskans”.

Physical Appearance

Bob Harte was a man of white ethnicity. He was slender built, had blond hair and green eyes. He was 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall, and weighted 158lbs (72kg).

Interesting Facts

Bob Harte’s favorite place was a high rock near his cabin in the mountains, which he named “the throne”. He used to spend time there to admire the landscape in solitude.

In Bob’s obituary, his family compared his life to Frank Sinatra’s song “My Way”.

Bob loved his entire family and friends hugely, and was thankful of them at the time of his death.
