Could the former Todd Hoffman team members have their own show on Discovery next season?

Dave Turin Talks About His New Show

Dozer Dave went to Facebook to talk to his fans about his new show. He traveled around the United States looking for some mines to check out. What he found was some cool things including some old abandoned mines and some great history. He also met some “really neat people.” Fans of Dozer Dave can now go to Discovery Go to follow Dave’s journey and see his encounters with mines and the characters he meets.

Turin, who was a major part of the Hoffman crew for seven seasons still loves the gold game and the gold quest and everything related to it. When he was recently on The Dirt, he spoke about the fight with the disrespectful Trey Poulson that ended his time on Gold Rush and the Hoffman crew. He confessed that if he could take back his actions he would. He thinks about this fight all of the time.

Freddy Dodge Has Been On Gold Rush Season 9

Unlike Dozer Dave, Freddy Dodge has been seen on Gold Rush quite a bit this season. Although Todd Hoffman and his crew are no longer on the show, “Cowboy Dumpling,” as Karla Ann has nicknamed him, has shown up and saved Rick Ness and his crew’s season many times over. With his characteristic calm demeanor and a quick wit, Freddy can solve any sort of problem so that the crew can get back to work.

Freddy has spent over 40 years helping out companies with their washplants and overall gold mining setup. He can quickly identify any problem, and solve those problems in a timely way so that the owners can go back to mining gold and making money.

Could Freddy Dodge And Dozer Dave Have Their Own Show?

Christo Doyle, the host of The Dirt point blank asked Freddy and Dave about returning to Discovery. Of course, Dave has his own show on Discovery Go, but perhaps Gold Rush could extend into a longer show so that the cameras could follow the former key Hoffman crew members mine some serious gold? What was their answer? Both looked a little sheepish. Whether they extend Gold Rush or decide to follow Dave and Freddy for their own show, both men looked as though they missed being on Discovery. Christo looked thrilled at the prospect of Freddy and Dave returning to television.

As for Todd, what is the latest with him? As of now, Todd Hoffman is not coming back to Gold Rush anytime soon. He has his own new show, Greenhorn Gold, hopefully coming out soon. He is currently in off-season meetings, with a major meeting on January 24. Could Todd Hoffman get his show on a network and compete against Gold Rush? We may know very soon!

  1. Yes. It’ll be fantastic to have Dave Turin and Freddy Dodge back on TV screen. They are knowledgeable about their work and nice people too. I hope they come back to TV shows soon.

  2. I think they should go back to the show they are good hard workers and they could do some great in the show I like the show but could be longer and more looks at the plates running and more miners teams show is short

  3. Freddy Dodge is a real expert in gold mining with years of success under his belt…Dave acts confident & prideful, but he’s really just pretending to know what he’s doing, mining-wise…no success, no history gold mining before Gold Rush tv show. I feel bad for those hard working dudes that blindly believe in him, & so desperate to support their families. He’s all talk- cut & run dudes! Dave should become a motivational speaker! Hope all y’all have a great time & good luck in every endeavor. All the best!
