It is probably no surprise that the Alaska Department of Natural Resources has been getting more inquiries than usual about offshore mining leases given the popularity of Discovery Channel’s new show, Bering Sea Gold. And, we know that they have recently auctioned off leases for big parcels of virgin underwater land for offshore mining. But, if you weren’t there for the auction, what are your options? How can you get in on the action? When is the next offshore mining lease auction?

Have you spent the last couple months watching Bering Sea Gold on Discovery Channel and thinking to yourself, “You know, I could buy a couple canoes, and old VW Beetle, a shop vac, and a diving suit and get more gold than these people!” Well, here’s your chance! The Discovery Channel has announced and open casting call for the second season, and they seem to be very open about who is eligible.
No one on Bering Sea Gold embodies amateur desperation like its most prominently featured undersea miner, Scott Meisterheim. The season is not off to a good start for the Captain of the Wild Ranger, and some say it is because he has an anger problem. He blames his poor performance on the idiots he works with. But what’s the real story?
Discovery Channel’s hit new reality series Bering Sea Gold follows several dredge crews just off the coast of Nome, Alaska. After only a couple episodes it seems pretty clear that some of these folks don’t really have much experience (to put it nicely). Actually, most of the stars of the show admit to being newbies, and most of the dredges seem like crazy, thrown-together mousetraps of old car parts bolted to floats. So, you have to wonder . . . can just anyone throw a VW engine on a raft, don a wet suit, and start sucking up gold? Well, the answer is yes . . . and no.
As if being a self described “wild Alaskan” and a beautiful Bohemian gold hunting gal isn’t enough it turns out that Bering Sea Gold’s Emily Riedel’s first career choice is that of an opera singer! We did some serious profiling of the glorious deckhand from the Clark but felt that her opera career was worthy of its own post. She’s got gold fever but her priorities lie in the higher ranges of that of a classical singer. Check out a graceful and poised Emily performing Bach and Schubert.
Bering Sea Gold exploded onto the airwaves Friday night scoring the highest rated debut in the history of the Discovery Channel. If you missed it, than you also missed one of the most intriguing women to ever grace the reality landscape, Emily Riedel. Emily is a Bohemian beauty native of Alaska who just so happens to be an opera singing, gold hunting, massage therapist, pursuing an opera masters degree in Vienna.
