Less And Less On
Gold Rush
Parker Schnabel is the young protégé of a gold mining dynasty and one of the cornerstones of the popular "Gold Rush" franchise. However, astute fans may notice that Schnabel is appearing less and less on the show, but there's a clear reason why.
In a recent Facebook video in which Schnabel answered questions from fans, he spoke about his growing absence, saying, "People who are watching 'Gold Rush' don't see me as much as they used to. Because, as soon as a business starts getting big enough, you're dealing with so much paperwork and permitting, and employee stuff, and accountants, and taxes, and the list goes on and on and on.”
Schnabel continued, “And, I don't enjoy the day-to-day of that, but I enjoy the process, and I enjoy the outcomes." Although fans might be sad that Schnabel will appear less on the show, it seems like he definitely has his priorities straight when it comes to his own professional goals.
