Fox News got the chance to talk to Todd Hoffman about the upcoming season, their money problems, and keeping his son from becoming Miley Cyrus. Todd is very open about what is going on with their family now.

During last season of Gold Rush, Todd Hoffman had some financial problems going on and they were not sure if they would recover. Fans were actually curious to find out if his family would even return to Gold Rush this season, but they are back and Todd Hoffman shared this about his financial status now.

"Yeah, yeah. We just worked really hard. I think we did really good. I think we got 1,350 ounces probably like $1.6 million in gold we dug up. But the key is that we were established for this year so coming in this year we weren't always working from behind, setting up camp so this is a great season. I got my son Hunter with me this year. My dad is back of course, my whole team, all my guys…Dozier Dave and all the guys so we're just hitting on all cylinders. So, I, me personally I don't know what really goes on in the minds of Parker, Tony, and the Dredge. So as far as us man we're coming out of the shoots hard."

When asked about going head to head with Parker from time to time, Todd Hoffman spoke out about him.

"Here you go. He's got, you know, I don't know what goes on in his mind. I know I finished the season with the same guys I started with. Okay? And that speaks volumes. You know I heard he fired a lot of guys. I picked up one kid that he fired you'll see it early on in the show. But at the end of the day it's about treating people right. I mean I really believe that you know you could get all the gold in the world and then lose your soul and then you know I say your soul is how you treat people. So I don't know. Me personally, I just have a different philosophy, and I hope this year he does better."
