The Todd
Moment That
Went Too Far
On Gold Rush
Some viewers of "Gold Rush" have pointed out that Hoffman was prone to overpromising and underdelivering, often pursuing gold-hunting expeditions that did more harm than good. This was especially notable when he took his rookie crew to South America back in 2013.
The mission in question came after Hoffman made some money and invested it all into a mining operation in Guyana. Unfortunately, the trip turned out to be a disaster, and the crew came home with just two ounces of gold.
Fans took to Reddit to discuss his blunder, with one fan stating that "all of the mistakes added up on this show" do not equate to the number of bad decisions Hoffman made in Guyana. The "Gold Rush" fan further noted that the miner "endangered all of his workers" during the botched expedition.
