Nevertheless, the businessman grew up far away from gold mining and processing factories. He pursued schooling, and there, he participated in high school basketball and worked out at a nearby gym. Todd got work immediately after finishing college in 1987, but he was quickly dismissed. He then started an aviation company in Oregon, but in the long run, he decided to go back and search for gold as his father did.
What is Todd Hoffman's net worth?
The American reality television star and gold prospector has an estimated net worth of $7 million. Todd Hoffman's income is an aggregate of all earnings from his business engagements, including his gold mining activities, TV shows and invites, and production roles in movie documentaries. So, how did Todd Hoffman make his money?
Hoffman's primary income is from his gold mining business. He invested about $1 million in acquiring mining machinery. He worked three years studying and honing the craft with his father's assistance and a small crew. Todd started his gold prospecting in Alaska and selected a team of six men for the job.
Did the Hoffmans make any money?
The businessman and his crew made much money from their gold mining adventure. In the second season, the crew found $150,000 worth of gold, and in the third and fifth seasons, they made $1.3 million and $1.6 million, respectively.
When Todd Hoffman's profile and his team's commercial success expanded, he realised that their accomplishments and adventures would be ideal content for a documentary series. So, he joined the primary cast of the first season of Gold Rush: Alaska when Discovery Channel approved the businessman's request to run a TV series and premiered on 3rd December 2010.
Later, the show was changed to Gold Rush in season two and subsequent seasons. The first season shows the Hoffman crew in their adventure of seeking gold in Alaska, mastering the art and making a name in the business.
The second and subsequent seasons featured other crews like Parker Schnabel and Fred Hurt's Dakota Boys, who searched for gold and other precious stones in different locations. But, unfortunately, the gold miner ended his contract with Discovery Channel and thus quit his role in Gold Rush in 2018. Todd Hoffman's TV shows are not limited to the Gold Rush; other shows and documentaries he featured in include the following:
- Gold Rush: Pay Dirt
- Fox and Friends
- Gold Rush: South America
- AM Northwest
