Why did the Hoffmans wait till the "mid season" to buy some machine that works with mud?

I know this poo poo is scripted but this is the best season of gold rush since they went to the amazon and got nothing. Specifically because the Hoffmans aren't getting anything.

It's annoying to see the scripted message about family and perseverance and being dramatic underdogs when they just bring in like millions of dollars of equipment and personnel out of nowhere and manage to get gold because it's the Yukon and the gold is there so even if you are incompetent you can basically just buy it.

Said it before and I'll say it again. If you want to reboot mythbusters hire a goddamn casting director and let him/her do their loving job. A competition show is just a dumb way to get what made mythbusters so good, the chemistry between the hosts.

Are they just revisiting old mythbusters builds for the show or are they taking on new myths?

I have less than zero desire to watch that loving show, but one really funny thing that I've noticed from the commercials is that more often than not when the contestants are all OMG SCIENCE!!! WACKY!!! they're looking away from the camera lens as if there's a producer nearby going "OKAY NOW ACT LIKE ADAM WHEN HE'S EXCITED"

A bit of necromancy, but just for shits and giggles I did some searching and it looks like that awful Mythbusters reality TV host contest show thinger is drawing rating points (0.08) level with things things like an Illinois State v Wichita State college basketball game and a show called "Killing Bigfoot".

quote:

Hansen is now under scrutiny after his estranged daughter, 28-year-old Melissa Eckstrom, publicly accused him of abusing her as a child, according to the Seattle Times.

In a recent lawsuit, Eckstrom alleges that Hansen sexually abused her when she was roughly three years old.

She alleges that the abuse started during her parents' divorce in 1990 and that it has haunted her ever since. Eckstrom says the lasting memories have caused depression and suicidal thoughts, according to the Seattle Times.

But Hansen has denied the claims, calling the lawsuit “nothing more than a shakedown.”

According to Hansen, the allegations were fabricated when Eckstrom was a child in order to help her mother earn custody after their divorce.

"The fact is, decades ago I was exonerated of these allegations after a full court trial...We were fully exonerated after a prosecuting attorney, a judge, court-appointed experts, a guardian ad litem and team of other child experts all agreed that these claims were pure fiction.

I cooperated 100 percent, including taking a polygraph test that also confirmed my innocence."

I find it hard to take anything involving Jake, Wild Bill, or Keith seriously anymore, especially when they're on land. They're the platform for finally allowing faux reality crap to trickle into the once seemingly-immune Deadliest Catch.

I think the last we saw of him was when Jake took over his boat a couple seasons ago, which itself seemed like a made-for-reality-TV situation. "Let's take this douche who's now a drugged-up douche and replace him with another cast member who really wants his own boat yet looks like he's ready to start crying at any minute and appears one good outburst away from pulling out a revolver and shooting himself on national TV!"

There always has seemed to be a greenhorn in the last few seasons who felt like they were cast for the show as opposed to actually hired to work a crab boat and had absolutely no business being there, and they usually wind up on the Wizard, Cape Caution, or with Jake.

I refuse to believe the rear end in a top hat that was on the Time Bandit (last season?) was real. Either he was actually cast to be a poo poo stirrer, or he snuck through the cracks just to stir poo poo. Dude was constantly playing to the cameras.

At this point in the show I think they're actively casting poo poo stirrers.

Back when it started getting fame whores rather than actual fishermen was a risk they talked about, nowadays I think they cast with the cameras in mind more than efficiency on the boat. But who really knows?
