Gold Rush fans shared what they think is the worst episode ever. The show grew in popularity over the years. It’s not going to die down anytime soon even though it had an off episode. The Discovery series centers around the gold mining operations in North America and South America.
Fans have wondered if the show is staged. Despite this latest criticism, it has led to many spin-offs that follow the same premise. The series follows the lives of the miners and their dangerous adventures. The mining world is a high-stakes industry for the crews that have viewers tuning in every week. While this formula hasn’t gotten old for fans, there is one episode they would like to forget.
Gold Rush fans vote on the worst episode
Gold Rush has the perfect mix of intrigue and drama that you won’t find with most reality shows that are scripted. It’s no secret that production likes to drum up drama. The show has gone on for 12 seasons and counting, and won’t let out of steam anytime soon. Yet, there was one episode that viewers didn’t enjoy watching.
Some Gold Rush fans called it the worst episode of the entire series. This episode was not the result of a prank gone wrong or a controversial moment. The reason why it was so bad is that it was a glorified clip show, per Looper. Fans on IMDb voted Season 9, Episode 17 titled “Gold Gurus” as the worst episode in Gold Rush history.
At the time of this writing, it has 4.3 stars out of 10. Most of the other episodes have a rating of 6.7. Most viewers couldn’t help but notice how glaringly different the format for this episode was. “Gold Gurus” was a filler episode that showed clips from previous episodes.
While the clip show episode format is easy for TV shows to make, it’s hated among fans. These types of episodes featured old scenes. Some viewers criticized the show for rehashing drama or old content to reach their episode count. Clip shows are common in both fiction and non-fiction shows, even though people hate them.
Discovery show is still beloved by fans
Aside from this episode, Gold Rush is still going strong. Fans love the show no matter what. They just hope that the show won’t air another clip show episode again. Per The Independent, these episodes have built up a bad reputation over the years as they offer nothing more than just filler. Other than that, viewers will continue to watch the series and its many spinoff shows.
“Gold Gurus” didn’t provide anything to Gold Rush Season 9. While most of the clips were from episodes that fans loved watching, they didn’t want to see an episode like that again. They would rather tune in to see fresh drama. Recapping the events of the season is redundant since they already know what happened. This episode is only good for those who missed much of Season 9.
